Sadly. All of them.

The last few projects were a mis-mosh of scripts, Java, C++, .NET, HTML and JavaScript.

I've seen new programmers think they can get by with a single language and then wonder why they can't land a gig.

LAMP, Linux Apache MySQL and PHP scripting is best
by InMotionHosting / May 24, 2013 12:37 AM PDT

Hello frenchs9867!

There are to major web servers, Windows and Linux. Both Windows and Linux can use PHP, MySQL, Apache. Windows mainly used ASP. .NET scripting. So it boils down to what you want to use for a server.

The Most common and least expensive server is Linux , also known as LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL and PHP). So I recommend the following programming languages if you want to be a comprehensive developer.

CSS (Cascading Style Sheets)
Structured Query SQL (MySQL)

W3Schools has really good basic tutorials available.

Reposted for aliance (without spam link):

ASP.NET is a unified Web development model that includes the services necessary for you to build enterprise-class Web applications with a minimum of coding. You can code your applications in any language compatible with the common language runtime (CLR), including Microsoft Visual Basic and C#. These languages enable you to develop ASP.NET applications that benefit from the common language runtime, type safety, inheritance, and so on.

What a question
by gaudac / July 3, 2013 7:19 PM PDT

It depends of your needs.

Yes, Java / C++ is a good way to learn programmation because they make the "base". They give you the logic and the syntax of many other languages.

I had to make a customer backoffice for my firm http://www.net-referencement.net with my poor knowledge in prog'.
I learned web languages HTML / CSS / PHP / JS in relation with SQL Database. Actually, I think I'm able to do almost everything I need with those programming languages, and they're easy to learn.

From my opinion, No one can give you an exact and particular answer to your question- which language is best for coding. It depends on the person’s interest and learning skills. One basic thing that is important to learn for all language’s is that, the basic concept of language. If you want to learn Java programming, then it is important to learn basic concept of Java programming.

It will be better if you know all the programming languages. Each language has its advantages of learning lessons about coding, make your program run, debug etc. For the beginners, have a chance to learn programming languages such as C++, Java, Python, JavaScript. To learn programming languages, ensure to use your skills and dedication.

Have a great day!
