At the moment I am doing an assignment on project management at Massey university all the way down in New Zealand. We have to estimate the effort required to develop bugzilla using Function Point analysis. I have already done the work, but the final part (its just for fun) is to pick a programming language that you would develop it in.
I was just wondering if anyone had opinions on the languages out there that are suited to this. I was thinking Ruby on Rails, it looks very fast with it frameworks, but i have no experience so I'm just going by what I've read about it on the net.
Any opinions out there would be greatly appreciated.
