DEV Community

Discussion on: Why Web developers still use Ruby on Rails?

For me, it's the community. The Ruby language itself has a very supportive and dedicated community that I find easy to navigate and fun to participate in. Rails has just as robust and interesting group of developers working in it as well. I have a lot of "Ruby friends" that I really enjoy spending time with - both in-front-of and away-from a computer.

And also, Rails is a grandpa in terms of modern frameworks - it's been around a while, has a ton of resources backing it, and issues are easily searched on S.O. and Google. This also makes Dev work a breeze in Rails, and quite enjoyable.
