- REAL XHTML (screw IE)
- CSS 3 (if we banish IE anyway, why not?)
For now just the basic CRUD and template stuff. Oh, and speed and security are very important for me.
Why not stay with the crowd and use PHP+MySQL or follow the hype and use Ruby on Rails?
The question already is part of the answer, I am not a crowd or hype person. I know humans are herd animals, but humans also try to belong to ‘the elite’. But another reason is that I think PHP is messy(look at the function names!), slow(I know benchmarks are evil…) and noob territory. Ruby is cool, but I feel out of control with rails. Java is cool also, but have these guys ever heard about rapid development? Python is cool but… Well, it’s just cool! Don’t know if that has anything to do with Monty Python’s Flying Circus.
The same is true for MySQL, besides the fact that everyone uses it, it doesn’t adhere to SQL standards. And since I don’t expect my website to become high traffic I want to use SQLite.
