In a week or so I will be hiring a programmer but I need to have a better idea what would work best.
It will be a web application not desktop. User will paste content in and the program will change the font, background color, etc. It will have some more complex functions but that is the general idea. It is not IM related.
I want a user to be able to login using any browser with a Mac, PC, Linux, ereader, iOS, Android. I will have a license from Typekit by Adobe for the specific font to show on all those platforms.
Is there a programming/coding language that would be less expensive to develop?
Which one would be the least buggy and easy to support?
Is there one that is looking like a preference for cross-platform applications for the future?
Is there one that plays nicer with other platforms and other types of coding?
Is there one that is faster and that uses less bandwidth? I eventually hope to host it on my own server.
Some of these questions may not make sense since I know nothing about this topic. Thanks for any suggestions you can give me.
