I work in a small IT department. We have 5 people on our team. We have an Oracle database. We have been developing our web applications in Classic ASP forever (using Dreamweaver). Our company browser is IE10 and Firefox. We are looking to move forward to a new API (ASP.NET, JAVA, RUBY, PHP, PYTHON, etc.). We need something that is quick,agile, and preferably free.
What questions should we be asking our selves when looking for a new API and IDE to work with and move ahead in the future?
Thanks for your input.
