Ok PHP rules the world, but do you think there will be some other scripting language after that?
It surely does all we need by now and PHP will evolve with time, but do you ever think you can come up with something better?

Im sure eventually there will be a language that surpasses PHP but for the time being PHP does every thing the web needs.

While writing the post I was thinking about Java, I have an idea why Java is not the de facto standard for all applications, it's cross browser, but it's slower than other when it comes to performance.

Yeah, i am thinking about learning Java, but just haven't got around too with other things going on.

Well most definitely PHP will be outgrown to fast, sexier and a more able language. I feel with HTML5 technology around the corner it will be most likely something which will be gone at some point in time. I'd think in about a decade if not shorter we would have a software which would be a mainframe for design, and ajax-style shenanigans and server-side interactions with the user. If one would create such a language in a open-source method I'd think that people would most definitely evolve to use that instead of our bland and sluggish PHP.

With the recent advancements in CSS and HTML, PHP will be out-grown as you said jaipai. But if PHP is developed along with CSS and HTML, it'll be great! But i guess we will wait and see what does happen with it in the future.

PHP with html5 will be a great combination. Though html5 is quite young this days (and still very few browsers support them fully) you might try to use ajax as of this moment.

Or, Jquery is extremely easy to use to someone who does not even know much or anything about javascript. + theres so much community behind it with easy to use plugins.

I would go for Java, not sure if it's hard (never really tried it) but you can make nice stuff using it.

Well, if you can write on PHP then you can probably write on java, c++ or c# with very minor adjustments.

I don't know- though I'm still learning PHP, there's nothing after it I feel the need to learn. Being a web developer, things like Java, C#, or C++ seem to have no need. But I think I will learn Javascript, for the sole purpose of jQuery.

The beauty of jQuery is that you don't even need to know javascript to use it. I use jQuery apps all the time, I can't make my own stuff but I can take what is built through plugins and can customize it to make it look so much different and make it my own. Theres so much plugins out there already made, why would I waste my time making my own to do something so similar? '

jQuery is great!

Java won't be the next language for any website... You need a plugin for a simple application, who wants that - its buggy too.

PHP will become better when they optimize object-oriented programming, I feel it could be much better than it is presently and if it does it will make programming easier as objects will be easily editable and application. I think OOP needs to be better if they want to make it better.

I agree with Jaipai, PHP will continue evolving. The worldwide community will keep it strong and since many coders and programmers are looking for ways to make better and faster I'm sure PHP will be king for many years. Well... until Apple decides to launch its own iCode or something, we'll see.

Python will never be the next. No doubt about it, sorry but python is not growing. Ruby on Rails is what seems to be on the rise these days. But I'm unsure if it will ever surpass PHP. As you can see with the new PHP 5.3.3 there are great new implementations which are great and will conserve its online presence.

On the note of a certain apple created server-side language. I don't think this would happen because if they did create a server-side language then it would only be able to run on apple servers. I don't think apple will go in this direction in anyway, I don't see incentive for them to go there. Anything open source would be much much better...
