The Chicago Tribune recently ran an article about Ruby on Rails and said that the movement is gaining ground. A colleague of mine thinks that Ruby on Rails has already come and gone. What do you think? Do you feel that a SCWCD certification is still what you want to have to work for bigger companies and that Ruby on Rails is just for smaller web applications with minimal backend integration?

Ruby on Rails may be great. But I feel, it is too early to say anything. It would surely take sometime for the major companies to adopt this platform.

I think it would be wise to know at least *something* about *all* of:

Java/Servlets
Ruby on Rails
.Net

... and then *specialize* in one of them.

As far as "basic knowledge": what better way than to study for - and successfully pass - a certification test? (rhetorical question, of course. There's no "better" way to acquire *any* kind of knowledge than to do it ;-))

IMHO .. PSM

I think ROR will never be able to catch up to Java because of its industry wide reckognition.
In fact ROR does solve some problems very quickly and is cost effective on smaller projects but Java is not where it is just because there was no alternative.

Another thing is hosting, it seems that finaly most of the "serious" hosts have J2EE in their offer and that is whats the problem for ROR right now.

Well just my 2 cents

Take care
