The Zeitgeist shows…
This is a picture with a lot of impact. This was from Seedcamp. The question asked was “What tools will you use?”.
Mårten pointed this out to us at the opening speeches at the Sun Database Group Developer’s Meeting. Its interesting to see what technologies are used. MySQL is by far, the most popular database server that all startups seem to use (though to be fair, I see CouchDB and PostgreSQL there too). PHP is about the most popular language (followed closely by Java, then Ruby). Its amazing to see what kind of technologies people are using to build the companies of tomorrow.
Find out more about it, at the Zeitgeist redux on the seedcamp blog.
