Actual technologies I'm working with
RubyOnRails is a web application framework for Ruby programming language.
I’m using with this framework because at work we had to chose a new technology over Yii framework, that was more productive, supported and documented, to get started with agendalugano.ch.
It was immediately familiar thanks to many similarities with Grails.
The main difference between the two besides programming language, is that Grails is more “domain-oriented” using Hibernate, while Rails is more “database-oriented”.
So far I can say only good things about Rails. There is lots of documentation available online, tutorials and many plugins.
Grails is a web application framework based on Spring and Hibernate. it’s my favorite.
It’s a fun framework to work with. With Groovy you write much more less code than Java, with no significant performance loss.
This framework is great for developers with a Java background. The productivity is very high. There is No XML configuration and it’s ready-to-use from start. It offers good documentation, although it could be even better.
Yii framework is a PHP web application framework.
I have been using it for almost 2 years now, developing websites, back-ends and intranet applications (ex: photogallery).
I have to say that I’m not a fan of Yii. While using this framework we had lots of frustration in finding workarounds for its limitations and the poorly written documentation.
