I don’t do RoR….yet, I hear the good things about it so I’m really close into diving into it. Before I do I want to make sure RoR is going to be something I can use professionally too. Here is a 30 minute research into the jobs out there for RoR compared to Asp.Net & PHP. I searched for the phrases “Ruby on Rails”, “PHP”, “ASP.NET” and radius of 100 miles from the zip code. There is no doubt some overlap of job posting but this is pretty clear indication of where things are.
Where I live – Cincinnati Ohio, Midwest
Second up New York City, East Coast
And now for the West Coast – San Francisco
So for me ASP.NET makes the most sense by far (almost 4x that of PHP). A surprise to me is on the West Coast, were it looks like ASP.NET is much smaller then else where. It seems that Ruby on Rails is very much in the incubator stage still, I guess I’m not turning on RoR anytime soon after all.
