Programmer Competence Matrix + Language profiling/popularity

Programmer Competency Matrix allows you to estimate your current skillset, but won't give you any advice as to what to look into to boost it all up.
So for making a decision about platform for your side-project or pet-project: see the Computer Language Benchmarks Game. And then of course you'd likely want to look on comparisons (russian version is quite better at that for some reason). Some popularity indexes may be also helpful: langpop.com, lang-index @ sourceforge, TIOBE index.

UPD: another page with language performance comparison (russian). A thought aside: there's no benchmark for green threads with in-process scheduling (which should look like load testing), where V8 and Erlang would shine.

thread-ring benchmark : Switch from thread to thread passing one token
