    Hey, sorry for the newb question, I'm a SysAdmin student, so i have a lot of scripting experience, but none really with web scripting.

    Pretty much i have a project where I plan on pulling data off of a website (bankrate) to compare rates and the such, and eventually give you a personal finance profile and suggestions.

    My question is just what is the best language to do this in? Once I know that, Im sure i can pull together some back end code pretty quickly.

    So, ASP?

    I'm a php programmer but i have to agree that ASP is probably the better language for this. Alternatively you could go towards Ruby or ColdFusion.

    According to me Ruby is best programming language for that.
