No PHP huh? Java/C/C++ have more demand it seems. RPG sits proudly at #38 in the list.

PHP is a long-term fad. The new web language will come about in a couple years and people will dump PHP for this cool new language (whatever it is). Today it is the better choice over JAVA for web applications, but just at it displaced Java, something will eventually displace PHP.

In the thirteen years I've been with my current employer, we've gone from green screen Lansa to Visual Lansa to RPG to PHP and now are hard charging into java. As far as I'm concerned, whether it's the straightforward git-er-done RPG approach, or the convoluted, high flyin', propeller head waste of time java approach, in the end, it's all just a bunch of 0's and 1's on a disc somewhere. Doesn't matter to me - as long as the paycheck's don't bounce, I can pretend to be a java programmer just as well as I pretend to be an RPG programmer.
