    I think PHP is a good choice as it is one of the most preferred web programming languages out there.

    Yeah, you are absolutely right.

    Around 80% of all websites around the world are using PHP. That is a huge market share and very hard to ignore. Java is considered the Enterprise web language along with .NET. Python seems to also be making ground on them all too. Ruby is puckering out, from what I can tell. All subjective observations on my part though, except the market share of PHP.:)

    PHP is good.
    But you have to have some AJAX stuff like Xenforo does.
    (alerts, etc).

    Hi DD.

    Yes, AJAXy functions are now a normal part of web life. My take on them though is they should always enhance the user experience and never detract from it. Sort of like, too much of a good thing can also be harmful.;)

    I love how you use the word Ajax-y

    About this discussion, we are looking hard at the GraphQL implementation Facebook has come up with, instead of a standard REST API. The advantages are huge for a system like Skooppa.
