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.

XHTML
CSS (Cascading Style Sheets)
JavaScript
PHP
Structured Query SQL (MySQL)

W3Schools has really good basic tutorials available.

ASP.NET

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

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.
