    Hello everyone,

    I was wondering what languages do you use to code your sites? This is what languages do you use besides HTML and CSS of course. There are lots of programming languages to can be used to create a dynamic website. Some of the server side are PHP, Python, Ruby, Perl, Java, among some others. So far I have only used PHP but I'm learning Go right now and I hope to use it in the future to power a site of mine.

    How about you? What languages are you using on your sites?

    I'm working on learning PHP as it seems to be the most stable for a future plan on a new website. I think it will work best for what I want to achieve.

    Java seems to be a really nice one lately. JQuery is also interesting, and I've been starting to learn it. They're a little unorthodox, considering they're not used as often as HTML or CSS, but they're lovely.

    JQuery is being used more and more everyday. I haven't tried ever but I should be looking at that. It's just that I can't seem to understand Javascript. I've heard that JQuery (being a Javascript framework) is far easier than raw Javascript. I must take a look into it.

    With phpBB, I primarily use PHP and SQL, but sometimes HTML and JavaScript come into play.

    I use mostly PHP and HTML/CSS whenever I code addons on ThePokerTalk. I may need my friends help on some features soon that require Jquery to make everything run smoother.

    PHP is not a tough language to learn and use to website development. On the net, lots of sources available to solve your problems. For me .net is best language to use website development it is quite safe but it is tough to learn.

    I've built a few web apps with Python(DJango), it's brilliant and with some basic knowledge of Python you can get things working pretty quickly. However it does take a bit of effort to get set up and running. Otherwise I just use good old HTML and CSS.

    I currently use only javascript, PHP, python and a little bit of flash on my website. I find PHP to be the best server side programming language and so it is used by many great websites such as Facebook and ebay.

    I do not know much about css and so I do not use it in my website, but I think to learn more about it to make my website more attractive and ultimately user friendly.

    On the social network I'm currently building I'm using quite a few languages, to make it work and make sure it's dynamic. The main language currently being used is CSS, I have almost 2,000 lines of CSS to make everything work which I really should think about cutting down. There's not much HTML, to be honest all which is involved with HTML is just divs and then PHP is something I will be doing next year. It also uses a bit of JQuery for a few flashy features.

    Since my forum's about programming, I use many different programming languages, but if you are talking about speaking languages, then we use American English and British English.

    HTML, CSS, and JavaScript are usually included in the development of my sites templating system.

    Everything else is powered by PHP, although I'm lately including some Ajax features despite I don't like Ajax at all due to the stressful way it load on the surfer's side.

    However I first started developing sites in HTML and pure ASP, and tried once ColdFusion and Phyton, but I didn't really understand these two languages, same as Ruby on Rails, which I don't see what it could serve me for.

    PHP is my favorite and most preferred today. I also have worked with the ASP and the DOT Net Framework of today, but still, PHP is widely in use - Almost 2/3rd of todays websites are on PHP-MySQL.

    I've been reading that PHP is a dying language for a few years now (maybe 4 or 5) and that it is a really bad language that should be avoided on new projects. But you are right, it is the most widely used, just that is reason enough for new developers to start using PHP.
