Best prog. language for MY Website

Posted 24 August 2009 - 01:47 AM

Hi there,

Simple Question: What programming language shall i use for my new Website Project!

Here's a roughly description what i'm doing:
What i want to do is a platform for Gamers, where they can compete against each other in different leagues (like Counter Strike, Fifa 2009, Quake, etc.)
You can log in, have an overview of all leagues and games, visit other profiles and so on.
You also can generate matches, where you can upload screenshots and other media and enter results and so on.
just everything you need, to get a league-platform running!

on of the only (still existing) example is: Electronic Sports League
Im not sure with what they did their website (asp?!?)


so now again: What programming language shall i use for my new Website Project!
would Java (JSP) give a good language for this?

cheers, Toxic

No, they have not used ASP, rather JS (which I would recommend) for the actual site. As for the games, I don't know, as they won't let Aussies join. :(

It's Javascript and PHP (odds are it's linked to a MySQL database)

I won't touch the question of whether PHP is a good way of doing it, but it's definitely a common way of doing it.

Since it's YOUR website, the best choice for the server-side programming will generally be the language that YOU know best and are most familiar with. (Or the language that you want to learn, if it's intended primarily as a self-education project.) All of the various options on the server side - PHP, Perl, Python, Ruby, .NET, C, Lisp, Pascal, COBOL, whatever - are capable of doing whatever your site may require, so choose one that you're comfortable with so you can work quickly and confidently without making rookie mistakes. You'll probably also want to find a decent framework in your chosen language to help get things put together more securely and in less time.

For client-side programming, you pretty much have to go with Javascript, whether you like it or not, since that's the only game in town unless you want to force your users to install plugins. Flash is used widely enough that you can probably count on the plugin already being installed, but, OTOH, ActionScript is just another dialect of ECMAScript, so I don't know how likely you are to like it if you hate Javascript. Silverlight, etc... not so widespread. I, personally, wouldn't use anything other than Javascript or maybe a little Flash for more graphics-focused stuff.
