This is an interesting video I found on Google video which shows a practical comparison between developing web apps using J2EE, Zope/Plone, Ruby on Rails, TurboGears and DJango, all of which are different application frameworks utilizing various programming/scripting languages like Java, Ruby and Python. Although I mainly build applications using PHP (recently adopting CakePHP as the framework), it’s also interesting to see how other developers develop web applications using different languages and frameworks. Afterall, since CakePHP’s structure is also based on Ruby on Rails, I watched the video by assuming RoR’s advantages/disadvantages to be that of CakePHP’s. If in case you don’t know why it’s better to adopt a Web Application framework instead of writing codes from scratch, here’s why.
Current web developers will certainly appreciate this. For those of you who’s not really into programming, at least this video will give you an idea how people write Web applications. It’s quite a lenghty video (around 40 minutes in total) so sit back, relax, and enjoy the show:
If you’re wondering which Web Application framework you should use, just ask yourself which programming language that you’re highly familiar with, find a framework that uses that language, read about it a bit, and then stick to it. Jumping from frameworks to frameworks will only bring you nowhere. For PHP developers, CakePHP or CodeIgniter are a few good options to look atTags: cakephp django php Ruby on Rails TurboGears web app development web application framework web technologies zope
