It really depend on what you are doing and for who. PHP is the prominent language and supports SQL well. So if you are doing web-based DB stuff that is the way to go. Usually you just pick the language know the best unless it can't do something or you have some specification to meet or has to interface with something.

These are two very different kinds of things. php is a computer language. Most web developers who use it are using a framework based on php, although they may frequently code a lower-level page in pure PHP outside or using limited features of the framework. Web2py is a framework, written in Python. I don't know much about it, but presumably you can write low-level web pages in pure python when using it.

Depending on how much customization you're doing, as a web developer you would normally either choose a framework you like (which might be based on either Python or PHP) or choose the low-level language you prefer, likely either Python or PHP. In the latter case, you might then choose a framework in that language to handle your more routine tasks.

I'm interested in knowing more about the Web2py framework. Does it work well in Python 3? Where can I find examples of web apps built in it?
