    Anyways "core" I would guess means the server side, and so the server is made in Scala (Primary) MongoDB, and a couple more, back me up on this @thomaster I kinda forgot xD

    The reason I'm asking this is that my school wants to implement something like openstudy for teacher-students aid or student-student mutual aid. Since openstudy has been around for quite a while, what's the best solution to handle server side management with today's technology?

    Javascript, html, css, ajax, etc.. all these langauges are mainly Client Side, what you want is server side, for server you can use Python, Scala, CGI/PERL, ASP, DJango (frame for python) Cold Fusion, JAVA (arguably the most robust and powerful platform for server side, Other than that you can look around for others, but you might want to speak with the school IT about all this and see what he likes the best.

    OpenStudy used Scala (very similar to Java) for all it's server-sided stuff. They used the typical languages, JavaScript, HTML and CSS. Note that for a lot of the answering and posting stuff, it was done with the server, and linked together heavily utilizing AJAX.

    And the main reason why PHP is disliked is for only one reason: It is not that efficient. It is still used quite a bit, because it is quite easy to learn. Facebook finds a solution by being programmed in PHP, yet being compiled to C++.

    And the way that you can answer and ask questions uses the server language, it connects to the server... and the Ajax allows the data to be dynamically loaded without any page refresh. Note that I'd prefer Sockets in this case, though for a small website this could be heavy handed. And PHP could still suit your needs quite well. It only gets slow for really big sites.

    PHP's downside is generally not considered to be its speed, though that can contribute. It's considered to be a somewhat convoluted language that implements certain language features that make it more difficult to reason about the program in a safe way, and more difficult to create maintainable programs.

    You could make something similar using Python and the Twisted framework. There are probably better abstractions layered on it at this point. Personally, I don't think there's anything out there that really holds a candle to Lift for real-time application development at the moment. The concepts that Lift uses to express real-time applications (actors in general and comet actors in particular), once you understand them, are extremely powerful and extremely simple to reason about.

    Lift's concepts as opposed to Node, which is still mostly either a mishmash of callbacks or abstraction layers that hide so much from you that you don't really know for sure when you start losing messages and such.

    The client side is slow due to a large number of active components that are propagating changes that force more redraws and relayouts and such than are necessary for any given set of changes. We never really got around to optimizing that aspect of things.

    There are no languages that are “much more powerful” than Scala. There are some languages that approach problems differently. Scala runs on a proven platform (the Java Virtual Machine) that has had hundreds of thousands of man-hours poured into its scalability and deployment stories.

    That was enough to bring me back for a second—avoid Java at all costs. It's basically the lamest language out there. In my opinion :p Others disagree ;)

    Node is kind of boring, presents very little that is new to web development, and uses an approach to concurrency that is fundamentally confusing instead of making it clearer (strictly speaking, it isn't concurrency, but whatever).

    Both of those run on the Java virtual machine, but that doesn't mean they're like Java. Scala shares some superficial features with Java, but is a very very different language.

Now, am I comparing @shadowfiend to someone who works at area 51 no. Nor, am i comparing Openstudy to area 51.
