Ruby on Rails
an open source web development framework which has revolutionized the way we create web applications. It gives us all the necessarily tools and components needed to build powerful apps in an intuitive development environment. RoR makes development more efficient
and less troublesome.
"..Powerful web applications that formerly might have taken weeks
or months to develop can be produced in a matter of days."
— Tim O'Reilly
Why we love Ruby on Rails:
Rapid development of prototypes
Structured code and neat markup, easy to create flexible
and maintainable code
Interchangeable databases, simply make a few configuration changes and voila!
Database schema control allows developers to easily get
the latest version of the database
