This all started because I am reluctant to learn Ruby on Rails to help
on a open source project with some hard core Java guys at work. I
more or less argued Bryan's points and they referred me to this book.
In my opinion is takes a very long time to master a language. Sure,
anyone can pick up a language and start coding in a week or two but to
really feel like you know the ins and outs takes a long time. I
argued that Java pays very well and there are things about my current
language of choice that I could improve on.
That being said, I also argued that PHP is the next best language to
learn for $$$ because 95% of the contract work I see is written in
