A good method is to look at job vacancies and see what languages are required and how much the salary is.

    A good method is to look at job vacancies and see what languages are required and how much the salary is.

    Looking at job vacancies gives some languages higher ratings than are probably realistic, due to the verbosity of the language. So, for example, a project that I would probably stick two programmers on if they were building it Perl, when built in Java results in 14 job openings.

      When I said a good method is to look at job vacancies and see what languages are required and how much the salary is.

      This was a Rule of Thumb

      Of course there are exceptions, that goes without saying and there are cases for all languages to be used in specific situations.

      But I think your statement will cause a lot of animosity in both camps if you seriously think.

      1 Perl programmer = 7 Java programmers
