Choosing the right programming language for your dream application is always a bit tricky. It’s like going to purchase your new car with lots of excitements and without knowing the brand value.
Right professionals can guide you better and give life to your dream application – such as the ruby on rails.
Now the question arises how frameworks like Ruby in Rails can be worth for your requirements?
“I’m still convinced that RoR is adequate to implement the requirements of about 95% of today’s web applications, it’s obvious that it isn’t “hip” any more. I agree that the language and the framework might not scale up to millions of concurrent users, thousands of data streams etc., but I assume that this is not relevant for all but very few companies.
All the micro services and big data buzz reminds me of the mindless adoption of EJB application servers in the early 2000s, when even the simplest web application was designed using transaction monitors and heavyweight EJBs.
The team productivity for developing small to midsized web applications with RoR is still unbeaten – there’s just no other framework that can deliver results within short time.”
