Re: guru question
When deciding what languages I was going to learn (a few years ago) I
decided on PHP and Python.
PHP is well suited for the web database work, meshes with Apache well
and MySQL, and seems comfortable to work with along HTML (not to
mention the fact most ISPs generally support it). Another bonus of PHP
is there are many many projects in PHP that I may peruse for ideas or
use to integrate in my projects.
Python was my choice for non-web apps, things I want to have run on a
computer locally, it has the graphics and sound libraries and such that
I was looking for.
Both have pretty similar easy to understand syntax (Pascal like) and
should make properly formatted sourcecode easy to follow. I see both
are well suited for the purposes I am using them in.
So it would be option 3, I chose both. :-)
