Maybe this is a well worn topic but hey, I've been away for a while. Got forum email notifications enabled, but no emails. Am I missing something obvious, or did the hamsters just get lazy in my absence?
Okay, I know, no elephant programming questions in the longue, but...
I'm talking with a friend about building a web-site, no I won't be stupid enough to try and write anything, and the choice of language has come up. Well what would you go with?
Think of a transactional site - fleebay et al - with users logged on and placing adverts with others retrieving and answering adds. Sounds like Griff's Bring-A-Ewe really. Well the question is if you had a clean sheet what trchnology would you employ.

I have already asked myself "two weeks are already gone again??".
No seriously, either use ASP.Net + MVC or PHP when you want to build it all yourself, Joomla! or WordPress when you want it more CMS style.
Never use any suspect-looking technologies as QML or a web emulator for C++ if you have not worked with them before, IMO too much risk.
Web services for the majority of the back end - in your language of choice (I'd use c# but anything you're familiar with is the best language)
I would probably use the 'familiarity over functionality' approach for the back end web site too - in my asp.net web forms - or use it as an opportunity to learn asp mvc properly - but I have yet to see a financial advantage of mvc over well written web forms.
Depending on the site, I would use very little back end web forms stuff anyway - as plain HTML and js wi web services will give you the majority of what you need, I think.
Since you said "language" and not "framework" or "system" then, based on where you are currently, I would suggest "Hungarian".
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
