Domino is much more than just a "language". Whilst I have my reasons for not
liking Domino, it isn't directly comparable to any of the things you've
mentioned (ASP, or PHP etc)

: I know I am coming in the middle of this and know nothing about your

: However, just out of curiosity, why can't you just say that there are
: languages such as PHP and CF and ASP and JSP that were created
: to develop web applications.  If you are going to learn something new
: with a technology that is geared towards what you are trying to do.
: Otherwise, you are in for some frustrating times when your applications
: can't do what you need them to do.
: > their outside consultant is a Notes/Domino developer.
: But their full time employee is an experienced web developer!
: BTW, the transition from ASP to PHP is not that hard.  It is well
: and there are plenty of places to get help.  Plus it is free, not an MS
: product which your boss will like, and can run on most common webservers.
: Plus, experience as a domino developer isn't really going to help you
: getting web design postions all that much down the road.  Perhaps you can
: get a job as a domino developer, though.
: Good luck!
