Take THAT you out of date example code! I'm gonna make it work whether you like it or not!

Note to software developers, if you're going to send out sample code, make sure it's up to date and follows standards. Thank you.

eWeek magazine just posted a story of the top 10 languages you should learn right now.

http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1895,2016415,00.asp?kc=EWWKNEMNL091506EOAD

As a summary:

1. PHP
Job availabilities: 1,152

2. C#
Job availabilities: 5,111

3. AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML)
Job availabilities : 1,106

4. JavaScript
Job availabilities: 4,406

5. Perl
Job availabilities: 4,810

6. C
Job availabilities: 6,164, including all derivatives

7. Ruby and Ruby on Rails
Job availabilities : 210 and 54, respectively

8. Java
Job availabilities: 14,408

9. Python
Job availabilities: 811

10. VB.Net (Visual Basic .Net)
Job availabilities: 2,090

I find a few things about this list interesting. One is that I'm actually working on learning two of the languages on the list and have considered a couple of others as well. Another thing I find interesting is that ColdFusion is nowhere to be seen. The third thing I find interesting is that they list Ruby on Rails and Python, but if you look at the number of jobs available on Dice.com natitonwide, they're miniscule. So were they just scraping trying to get the list up to 10, or is it just because Ruby on Rails and Python are getting hyped right now in Web development?
