Percona Blog Poll: What Programming Languages are You Using for Backend Development?

Take Percona’s blog poll on what programming languages you’re using for backend development.

While customers and users focus and interact with applications and websites, these are really just the tip of the iceberg for the whole end-to-end system that allows applications to run. The backend is what makes a website or application work. The backend has three parts to it: server, application, and database. A backend operation can be a web application communicating with the server to make a change in a database stored on a server. Technologies like PHP, Ruby, Python, and others are the ones backend programmers use to make this communication work smoothly, allowing the customer to purchase his or her ticket with ease.

Backend programmers might not get a lot of credit, but they are the ones that design, maintain and repair the machinery that powers a system.

Please take a few seconds and answer the following poll on backend programming languages. Which are you using? Help the community learn what languages help solve critical database issues. Please select from one to six languages as they apply to your environment.
