My web based programming language of choice is PHP, however I still have to use other languages such as javascript from time to time when I need dynamic client side code versus server side scripts. I chose PHP because it was easy to learn and there is no need to compile code before seeing the code in action.

“Client-side code runs in the browser so updates can be made to a side as a user interacts with the web page. Server-side code runs after a page has been submitted to a server and usually interfaces with a database server”.

However that is just my preference and all good programmers will argue why their programming of choice is the best.
