thought it best to post in a general one.
I'm interested in creating a site that I suppose would closely resemble the
setup of a dating site. Lavalife, Campuskiss, etc. What programming
language(s) should I be considering when doing this? I know I have several
options...asp, php, etc., but would one be better suited for my needs in
this case then another?
Thanks for your help.
Re: Development Question
big questions, and you'll need at least THREE languages;
One server-side language - either ASP, PHP, JSP... doesn't REALLY
matter. Whichever you are most comfortable programming in, and of course
whichever one your host supports. On top of this you will of course need
a database, and you'll need to learn SQL regardless of what database
platform you choose. Finally, for basic form validation on the client
Pretty much all of the above is required, and I'd suggest a few more
that will make life easier: you data should be managed in XML, and make
sure your site is put together using CSS.
