I did my last programming job four years ago and moved on to other things. But now I have a can't-say-no opportunity to update a large project that I worked on way back when. Since this is going to be a from-the-ground-up rebuild, I'm curious to know what I've missed in those four years. Obviously I can look at the docs and see what, technically, has changed, so what I'm really asking is what have been the real game-changing advancements? What's got developers most excited? And what new software/online resources exist to facilitate programming? Or is php/mysql on its way out and I should rewrite in some other language?
