I'm hoping to find short (2 month-ish to 6 month-ish) full-time, in-person programs that teach practical computer programming skills (Ruby, Python, iOS, PHP, R, Matlab, etc.) [more inside]
What's the best way to do a complete clone/copy/export/duplicate/mirror/whatever of an Eclipse-based development environment and move it to another PC? [more inside]
Is there a reliable, not-too-expensive hosting company out there that lets you post server scripts in most open-source languages? [more inside]
Java versus PHP: Does it make sense to use Java in a small web design business? [more inside]
I currently am using plain-jane HTML form "browse" file input fields to allow uploading on several sites. I want to move forward. I think "thinfile" will work for me, but before forking out the bux, do you have any recommendations? [more inside]

I have Apache 2.0 running. I can easily set stuff up like mod_perl and PHP. I want to start developing w/ Java and I want to run servlets and Tomcat scares me. Does it run under Apache? Seperate from Apache? Any info appreciated.
If you were writing a new p2p application -- leaving ethical and legal issues aside for a moment -- which programming language would you use? I know Visual Basic and PHP, but neither is really any good for this purpose. I dislike things that require the user to install a big VM (.NET, Java) and find C++ a complete nightmare. [more inside]
I have been looking at changing my web development focus from Windows/ASP/.NET to LAMP(Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP/Python/Perl) because my gut is telling me that this is where things are going. Oh, Java should be in there as well.
What's the skinny on LAMP in the real world (Netcraft surveys
aside)? Is it difficult to change to LAMP/Java? Is the open source thing really sticking?
