What language should I write my program in?

We recommend that Python be used for new code, since it is a popular choice beyond MIT, much of the team uses it, and any future maintainers of are relatively likely to know it (as MIT teaches many classes in Python). Popular Python frameworks include Django and flask with sqlalchemy.

PHP is probably the mostly commonly used language on (WordPress and Mediawiki are written in it).

A wide variety of other languages also work, including Ruby on Rails.
