After a bit of basic advice please. What web development languages are available and what are the advantages of each? If this is too basic a question, can someone please signpost so i may research this.
I ask as I have a couple of websites that i need to develop but new to programming and i dont want to make a basic mistake when i contract the work out.
One website is essentially a shop where people can buy things, where i can add my own stock/invoice/count stock/search items etc.
The second website is more complicated - a recruitment website for day to day work with invoicing features etc.

Also, my replies are not about "what language is best" .. I am discussing what is used the most across the Internet, and the biggest server/hosting side for for web application development is PHP based.
Go download WordPress (for example)... it is in PHP (server side) and JS (browser side), because this is the standard used by the largest communities on the web. Ditto for forums (written mostly in PHP for the back end).
I am just getting into web development and I want to understand it better and more theoretically. :D
So by now I can create some basic websites with html, css, php, etc, but what I do not understand is how is this then projected into the world wide web or what we call the internet??? Of course... (2 Replies)
