    Learn PHP. Once you know that you can choose to delve into Rails/Django/Node/whatever the flavour of the minute is. PHP has the benefit of an absolutely massive community, a decade of tutorials/plugins/etc, and requires nothing more than a text editor and a shared webhost (or local machine) to run. Rails/Node/and particularly Django are going to be much harder to find learning materials on, because they are much smaller communities. They are all fine technologies, but they're 'worth more' because hardly anybody knows them (compared to PHP), and that's not a great thing when you're learning.

    oh and google is by far the best website for tutorials
