    I am a hardcore Rails fan and know about the framework moderatelt enough to recommend it for most decent sized project. ASP.NET is a powerhouse indeed and of you are into the idea of sticking to a .NET environment and like the .net languages then by all means.

    Rails has many helpers included that feel like magic, the ActiveRecord orm is really powerfull and expressive, overall a joy to use.
    Funny enough. I've had experience with .NET and even though i liked it (i was on ASP.NET MVC) i feel that Rails feels more natural to me and Ruby is one of my favorite languages, I find it more natural than even Python (merely subjective of course) and would recommend giving a try.

    One thing to consider is gems, there are gems for practically anything you can do and Rails 5 has superb API creation functionality as well.

    @AleCx04 another thing. If you are just starting with development and Rails you will see that the community embraces the following:
    Test driven development - a core pillar of the Rails community, there are tons of great resources available and most tutorials include a tdd section.
    Superb front end adoption: trying to configure webpack, gulp or whatever for your shiny JS front end? Don't sweat it, the community has taken care of this for ya, whereas in Rails we have great gems for it, other frameworks make you work for it hardcore (looking at u django) and help is available on most user groups.

    Now, people complain about slowness and whatnot. Which is definitely something to consider. But then again, i have yet to meet someone using Rails that is reaching critical user levels such as Twitter and or Fb in which you can always use something else to help you power your backend (Go comes to mind for an external api cruncher)

    @AleCx04 ans at least speaking from personal experience. Rails jobs pay a tad more than C# asp.net related jobs. If you freelance on it you can get a better idea.

    @rui725 look at creating a crud app that contains essential shit, from user login and auth to email verification as well as the ability to process stripe payments. Companies love that shit. Don't fret too much for front end shit for now, git gud with css and Ruby tho.

    @AleCx04 I tried learning Rails but it has too much magic it confused the hell out of me. How do I learn the right way?

    @Zerocchi by having patience and lots of it. A lot of beginners seems to go into rails thinking they need to know everything. You do not need to learn everything at first, gradual and easy steps as well as a healthy dossage of Rails guides will do the trick!

    @AleCx04 in Ruby I tried to do a simple code that would output something and then using gets method to get the input from the user.. but what’s happening is that it does the input before it’s output... nooby question here haha.. plus what does symbols do on ruby? They say that it is immutable but once I assigned a new value it actually changes the value...
