Python vs Ruby vs PHP

Programming Language wars have been going on for decades. And, yet when one searches the web they still continue comparing and contrasting through the vast array of their unique uses and externally distilled libraries. Each of them has a personality and a drive of their own with their own passionate community. But, as often functionality and speed to delivery precede the developers choice. As they say time is money but in this era of cloud computing and data consumption it is also about the wise language choice within the infrastructure verses the compromises that may come within the long-term maintenance risk. Often times the skills of the team, the open community, the customers, and the functionality of the application dictate the use of language. As the web continues to evolve around us so do the technology drivers that make it all happen.
