[SLUG] language jihad
Noted with interest about the use of "mason" as a potential language for
the development of the SLUG site... and I need to learn a language for web
development and database (postgres? mysql?) similar to the SLUG
PERL, PHP, mason? what the hell is mason? There have also been other
languages mentioned that I've never heard of.
I don't know any current language (I was a cobol programmer in the 70's).
I remember someone on list being incredibly disparaging of PHP.
A language jihad might guide me (and others?) which direction to take, and
avoid false prophets. What are the serious strengths and weaknesses, and
which are ridiculously difficult to learn. Do they relate to other
languages or are they are a blind alley. Any other thoughts? If this list
is the wrong place to pose this question, where would be better?
