This has been bugging me for some time.
I always like to check the number of tags the top tier languages get on any given day.
It always struck me as odd that, while php generally stays at #3 when compared to java and c#(on weekdays), it shoots up on weekends to get quite ahead of the other two.
I wonder why that is so. I've thought up of a few possible answers:
ONE People work on other platforms on weekdays on their regular jobs then switch to php on weekends for freelancing work;
TWO People work with other languages on weekdays but want to study/learn PHP, so they do it on weekends;
THREE Could this show that, while programmers have to work with language A, B or C in their work, they like working with PHP?
I'll leave this for you guys now. Have fun!
