Discussion on: What made you switch your main programming language?

I work with the web for more than 22 years and my first server-side language was Perl. Sadly Perl lost a lot of market shares and job offers started to dwindle.

At the time PHP was starting to rise in popularity and it brought a lot of perl-like syntax and concepts along, so I've naturally switched to it. Been working with PHP for more than 17 years now and I personally love it.
