Re: Could use some advice on web-programming
IMHO, even if you don't like PHP, stick with it, or find another class/field. Everyone around you is going to talk PHP, the teacher's examples are likely going to e PHP (and you'll have to be familiar enough to understand them), not even speaking of working with others (which means that you shoul dbe able to read their code, and they should be able to read yours...). This shouldn't prevent you from working on your own extra-curricular projects in Java or Ruby.
