2 Interesting Coincidences

I recently leard two interesting coincidences about PHP’s history- it’s a small world.

First, Rasmus Lerdorf, the founder and creator of PHP was also a University of Waterloo graduate. It turns out that he graduated from Systems Design Engineering from UW in 1993. So, although it’s a different program, it’s interesting that we share a department and a university.

Second, interestingly enough, in 2004 PHP 5 was released on July 13 – my birthday.

Yes, perhaps inconsequential, but they still entertain me.
