What language would I use for...

Say I was making a web application that told people that others were near them on google maps or any type of map. what coding language (s) would i need to know for doing this?

1 Answer

My advice would be to learn Python and the web framework Django.

If you are new to programming Python is pretty straightforward and the syntax is clean and simple.

Django is what most Python programmers use to make web apps but there are tons of other options.

Then figure out how google's api works and you're in business.

Of course this is a simplistic answer but it should point you in the right direction.
