    I prefer using something along the lines of Ruby on Rails, but "best" is variable at...Well, best.

    Language depends on your needs. They all do basically the same thing... what you are looking for when choosing is deciding what your specifications for the project are then searching the net for anything that already does 60% of what you want to be done. If python does it, go with python... if PHP.... go with PHP.

    Another note... the more developers for a language the better chances you have to find the talent and keep. If you have some very specific language the laws of supply and demand will take effect meaning you can be charged more to get the same project done. I recommend php for this reason as it has the largest number of developers.

    I do agree, due to being extremely popular in web development and relatively quickly adapting to newest standards it's probably going to last very, very long. It has both the simplest development and simplest server environment. There are more resources on the web to learn PHP than any other language.

    Hello! If you want to develop Frontend you can use JS/React/Redux or JS/JQuery/Angular

    Web JavaScript + NodeJS, nothing else is needed. Make sure you determine if MySQL is necessary for your project. I love key/value DB's like LMDB.

    i grew up with PHP.
    I love php.

    but i am currently moving to JavaScript, node, and NoSQL.
    everything now moving towards serverless technology. PHP is good for server side scripting and all, JavaScript now able to perform well both for client side and server side.

    but, all in all, programming nowadays is more about end products, all depends on your purpose.

    Depends on the size of the project. For simple websites, blogs, etc. PHP is great. For bigger systems that are web based, you need to shift your thinking to "non-blocking" methods. The problem with the old way of thinking is that when a bunch of users hit your site, things become clogged.

    There are some great languages out there now that are reactive to the users needs and suit large web systems much better.

    Has anyone looked at the Elm programming language? Its a pure functional programming language(it similar to Haskell but it only has a fraction of its functaionality) for web development. If you have some programming familiarity with recursion and immutable data and pure languages then I'd check it out.... Its pretty cool!

    These days: JavaScript through and through. Most of what I develop now are React frontends, using APIs written in Node.js. And that's a growing trend in the industry... so much so that a lot of us have taken to jokingly calling ourselves JavaScript Developers, as that's what we're writing 90% of the time.

    PHP is still a strong contender though. I've been writing in PHP for some 17 years, and have always been subscribed to the Internals team, keeping an eye on what's going on. And they're genuinely good about pushing the language forward.
