Is it a good idea for me to learn Ruby on Rails?

I know HTML and CSS, but I have very little Javascript experience and
very
little programing knowlege.( Ruby ) I have decided to learn back-end web
development. I choose Rails over Node.js

So please can you tell me if it would be a good idea to learn Node.js
for
or I should learn Ruby on Rails?

Go with .php and MySQL programming directly to begin with, incorporating
CSS, JQuery etc. Once you’re comfortable with that, have a look at
Rails.

There is no point a beginner learning php, he may never need it. Just
go with Ruby and Rails. If you do not know programming at all then it
might be best to start with a Ruby primer to get the basics of
programming, then move on to Rails.

You said you had very little programming knowledge. As far as rails
vs node.js is concerned it depends on what you want to develop.
Googling for
node.js rails
will give lots of hits including [1] which is a brief comparison, but
no doubt you have already googled and seen those.

Like Colin rightly said, first figure out what you want to develop. If
you are a beginner with no development experience, it doesn’t really
matter which one you start with.

Like I said, you’re a beginner, so it doesn’t matter what you start
with. What matters is what you get really good at.

and what about live streaming in rails 4 can it can be compare with
node.js
or espress.js

Express.js with Node.js gives you the full pack, Im using it plus using
javascript from the backend all to the front end with jQuery,
knockout.js
etc, you can have all your infrastructure just in one language.

Also Node.js gives you scalability and performance in the other hand
with Rails
if your need something scalable or with awesome performance you end with
some middleware or backend in Java or Scala.

*Also Im not sure why people find so special Rails, Yes Rails got its
time
on 2005 when went public and it was a fresh air of a framework but right
now nothing special about it. *

Maybe Ruby the language still have its charming but I prefer personally
Javascript or Python but thats other story.

did rails really lost its charm

Why not try it and tell us what you think?

Colin

sure [?]

i want to develop all type of apps => traditional to Real time

For someone who says that they have “very little programing knowlege”
you seem to have your mind already made up. Why did you even come here
and ask your question if you already know the answer?

As a side note we use Rails and we do not need Java or Scala to get
things to work. We may not be Twitter but then very few companies are.
But I guess have all the answers.

So young, so set in your ways. Very sad.

sure

Make sure whatever you learn finally, use MongoDB with it. It is web
scale.

yes

Because added complexity on already complex apps means more performance.
Because using a pure Ruby wrapper is faster than C.
Because you can’t cluster PG anymore.
Because you can’t replicate anymore.
Because you can’t do connection pooling.
Because you can’t shard traditional databases anymore.
Because faster is always better, especially when it costs.

Why take something that specific and apply it to everything? Why? Why?

It was a joke, Jordan. Just messing around with a newbie :slight_smile:

I think its safe to say that a web developer has to be ambiguous. and
so learning multiple languages for backend web dev would be optimal. so
your question was if it is a good idea to learn ruby on rails?
absolutely.
