I'm going to hire someone off Elance or some other site to build a site. This is going to be a full on application with user accounts, money transactions, etc. What is the easiest language to hire someone in, that I can pick up as a developer later go into the code and tweak and improve on, as new requirements come up?

I am only fluent in Cold Fusion (Adobe) but there aren't many of those programmers in India I would imagine. PHP I could 'reverse' engineer ,but I also been hearing about Ruby on Rails..?

From what it sounds like you'll need someone with PHP and MySQL experience. (Obviously they'll also need HTML, CSS, XML, etc.. JavaScript would be a help, too).

Any language that allows applications to "talk" with a database will work, as has been mentioned php/mysql would work well for the job. post your jo in a few categories and make sure you speek with a few programers to discuss in full your requirements.
