Ok, so I am a lifelong Microsoft developer.
I was just gifted a nice CentOS 6.3 clean linux machine with some beastly stats.
I want to try something new for once. LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySql, PHP) seems very boring and I have done it time and time again for cheap clients who just want wordpress.
So here is my question to the Unix Web Development community.
What is hot and worth learning right now?
I know rails has been around for a while but I still get job offers for RoR jobs so it doesn’t seem to be going away. Should I go with the Java powerhouse. Or maybe this new Node.js everyone is raving about. I even heard people are using phython again with Django.
I am just going to build a web app with what ever I end up choosing. I haven’t even decided what yet.
But please let me know your thought and what makes your thoughts awesome.
