Starcoders is an international software development company, focused on distributed work through agile and lean methodologies. We try to attract the best developers worldwide, and pair them up to work for our clients. From our experience, the PHP community is a lot bigger than the others. In the last few years, PHP has matured as a programming language as well, copying items from the other languages. We always keep up to speed with the latest PHP version, to reap the benefits of these improvements. This is why we haven't felt the need to switch to anything else yet. However, we're open to any language, and on new projects, developers are free to choose.
