    Whenever a major improvement happens in web technology, whenever a new framework or a language is introduced in the web development market, PHP’s death is declared immediately. I have been witnessing a recent popular belief that PHP is nearing its end due to NodeJS becoming the new “darling” of the developer community. To me, this belief is a naive statement comes from lack of knowledge on the history of programming languages since the story of PHP is the greatest survival story of the entire computer science history. Over the years, many people have declared the death of PHP against a…

    For developers of my generation, C++ was the go-to language. It was everywhere, especially when you needed to write code that is fast, efficient and object oriented. C++ gave us the control we need to use every bit of performance and also extendable language to adapt modern programming techniques. We didn’t really think that one day there would be another language that could ever challenge C++ in what it did best. To me, C++ is still the king of all programming languages.

At its core, Azure Functions is a serverless compute service. “Serverless” might sound misleading, as there definitely are servers involved; however, the idea is that the responsibility of server management, scaling, and infrastructure concerns are taken away from the developer. This allows us to focus on writing and deploying our code. Azure Functions…
