SitePoint Ruby on Rails Blog:
PHP developers most likely to switch to Rails
October 09, 2006 @ 08:06:49

Matthew Magain has some interesting observations over on the SitePoint Ruby on Rails blog today - specifically that PHP developers are the most likely (out of those working with other web-based languages out there) to make the switch to Ruby on Rails.

Of all the graphs in The State of Web Development 2006/2007 report that SitePoint and Ektron published recently, the one that stood out the most to me was the one showing the platform currently being used by developers planning to start using Ruby on Rails.

It wasn't the fact that the graph shows PHP developers to be likely to start using Rails-this makes sense, as someone is more likely to experiment with another open source platform if they're already using another open source platform-it was the fact that PHP developers are more than three times as likely to start using Rails, even more so than Java developers!

Unfortunately, the study mentioned isn't too cheap, otherwise it would be interesting to see the info behind this graph....
