What Is The Most Preferred Programming Language For A Web-based Startup? by MadNuke(m): 12:12pm On Sep 09
It doesn't matter much.

You are going to build a web browser hosted application with some live ajax features (notifications, chatting maybe). On the browser you're going to write in HTML and Javascript with some number of Javascript libraries (there are many, they all skin the cat a little differently).

On the server, you will likely use anything that can parse an http request and spit back json. My personal preference is bare handed PHP. It deploys quickly and easily. It has a very robust runtime model. It has very little overhead with respect to tool chain (no compilers, no "app containers" to fall over, dead simple deployments). PHP developers are plentiful. PHP has a bit of a bad rap because it is easy to get started and a lot of amateurs have build some truly horrific piles of pasta with it but PHP is coming into a new age of good package management via composer and more mature frameworks like Laravel (which I personally don't use). PHP scales very well in the cloud.

Ruby on Rails is similarly productive and easy to build product with more deployment headaches and more overhead.

Python is a bit like Ruby but lacks a really cohesive web culture.

Java has a fairly large tool chain overhead and is slow to develop due to compilers, build processes, application container overhead, etc. It is always my very last choice.

NodeJS is gaining momentum but I don't have enough experience with it to recommend it and a few apps I have seen have been tremendously bad at error handling. Server side javascript isn't a lot like browser hosted javascript even though the language is the same.

At the end of the day, language makes very little difference compared to architecture and algorithms. If you are writing it yourself, use what you like. If you are hiring it out, use whatever make hiring your team easiest.

Do you have an idea you wish to fund?

PHP will help any start-up get off ground with minimal costs.

Cheap linux hosting support, cheap developer fees, wide-community backing, codes and scripts all over the place.

What more can i say?

Not too difficult to deploy and scale. Building enterprise app? Use frameworks for scalabilty, peer-programming, and enhanced security. You can even leverage on Open-source CMSes and make it yours.
