I went to college n the '80s when COBOL, Assembler, Fortran and Pascal were part of the curriculum. Through work, my skills have evolved into .Net, C#, Silverlight, ASP, HTML, SQL Server for LOB applications.
I get asked the question from people looking to get into web development what to study and I don't really know what to recommend these days. What's the hot language or environment. Obviously, mobile apps are the rage. What say you all?

A lot of buzz around HTML5 and CSS3. Ruby on Rails is also worth looking at, as far as a "hot" language environment. On the database side, a lot of buzz around NoSQL type databases (mongodb is a popular one).

Oh, and as far as doing the development, take a look at XAMPP from Apache Friends. It is an easy way to install an Apache, MySQL, PHP, Perl ...etc system for development. Eclipse and Netbeans are two free open-source IDEs that are popular for web development. With XAMPP + Eclispe/Netbeans you can pretty much set your system up to do web development in 15-20 minutes.
