  • Post published:September 30, 2021

Ruby on Rails 7 is sending shock waves to other languages.

Rails has always been the best for designing full-stack websites since the beginning. You may have your opinion on this, but we believe that it’s a language and framework that makes the development faster. While many talk about its demise, we say it’s sought-after and looks to be making its way in the future too.

We are not the only ones who like ruby on rails much. We have some more people on board with us. Here is what they have to say about RoR:

“Rails is the most well-thought-out web development framework I’ve ever used. And that’s in a decade of doing web applications for a living. I’ve built my own frameworks, helped develop the Servlet API, and have created more than a few web servers from scratch. Nobody has done it like this before.”

James Duncan Davidson, Creator of Tomcat and Ant

“Ruby on Rails is a breakthrough in lowering the barriers of entry to programming. Powerful web applications that formerly might have taken weeks or months to develop can be produced in a matter of days.”

Tim O’Reilly, Founder of O’Reilly Media

“Rails is the Killer App for Ruby.”

Yukihiro Matsumoto, Creator of Ruby says:
