    Re: PHP or ASP.NET

    I have had a little look at that. Is it difficult to pick up?

    Re: PHP or ASP.NET

    I've been coding in PHP for years so it's somewhat hard to break the habit... not least because I've produced mods for phpBB2 and maintain them when I can.

    Rails has a good write up though and is where a few web coders I know have gone with their work.

    No, it's very easy and there's some excellent tutorials on the net.

    This one in paticular I found entertaining and instructive.

    ASP.NET personally. with a C# code behind. I liked C/C++ and Java so it was pretty intuitive to pick up.

    PHP, cross-platform and faster than ASP. Having said that, I used Classic ASP for our intranet simply for the easy AD integration.

    Re: PHP or ASP.NET

    I did a bit of JSP work when i was at uni, but since i have been in education, i have gone down the PHP route..... i just found it very easy to pick up and there is loads of information on the web about it

    Re: PHP or ASP.NET

    I am a PHP programmer too. So far it seems this is what seems to be the main language.

    I've done both at work and I find that php is easier.

    Do you think this would be difficult?

    As a rule of thumb, whenever I start figuring out the timing for a project I take a reasonable figure, double it... go away think about it for a couple of hours.. add 12 hours, divide the number of hours by 8 hours to get days and then triple that number to get a rough estimate on time.

    I'd imagine you'll have a job on your hands though.

    Yes, I think it would be difficult. Install Moodle and add things to that, your not likely to get your own VLE to that standard soon - and if you don't like Moodle - patch it

    Yes, I agree it would also be difficult. Contributing to and working on Moodle would be a better way forward I reckon.
