Another PHP programmer responsible for things like the MicroMVC PHP framework.

You may notice that some of my questions run very deep into the heart of certain issues because I strive for the highest optimization that is possible in my apps.

True, node.js has an asynchronous PostgreSQL library now for non-blocking database calls. I guess it's just too late in the PHP language design for this type of stuff. I also need to take a better look at how Ruby or Python handle this type of thing.

@Ami, a Provisional Patent only lasts one year. To my knowledge you cannot re-file them (though it might depend on the type of thing being patented. A Provisional Patent only "saves your spot" in the patent line while you get a real patent filed.

thanks for the detailed overview. I'm still a little new to this so I want to verify that there is no way PHP can manage memory as efficiently as the shared memory of Ruby or single process of Node.js correct? Since (to my knowledge) a PHP process can only do one thing at a time I spawn multiple processes to handle multiple tasks concurrently which wastes resources correct?

@S.Lott, what are the other languages that share resources rather than re-loading them each request?

I run PHP as a CGI script listening on port 9000 behind nginx. Does that script keep the classes in memory for each load then? I also have about 10 PHP processes running to handle enough requests - is there any way they can share the resources they load?

That really isn't a bad idea. I was also thinking about spending more time in illustrator and Photoshop working on my designs. Still, I would like to find out more about the web application options out there.

@phant0m, can you post that as an answer, that is one of the best overviews on python and ruby I have ever read!

The last time I looked at Drupal (4 & 5) it was rather bad. Perhaps their newer versions use proper standards now. Still, as slow as it is I would much rather stick with the awesome frameworks out there.

I don't know what you said, but +1 for all the text and acronyms.

Our team is distributed in space and time. Can I join your team? I'm so sick of deadlines pushing terrible code into production. With you guys I'd never have a deadline again!

That's true, it should only take a couple weeks to build out something and I would benefit from the experience since languages generally follow other languages.
