Jobs: ColdFusion vs Ruby

coldfusionmisc

The Ruby programming language is getting a lot of interest these days, thanks to the Ruby on Rails framework developed by 37 Signals' David Heinemeier Hansson. I thought I would see how it fares against ColdFusion using indeed's new job trends feature:

coldfusion vs ruby job trends graph by indeed.

As you can see the word ColdFusion shows up in about 0.06 to 0.08% off all job postings. Ruby is currently at about 0.03%, but growing.

y'know, a few years ago (before ASP was called "classic"), Tcl ("Tickle") was touted as the next big thing as far as web programming languages go (much like Ruby is today, IMHO)

and where is Tcl now?

Ha, I was going to do a posting very similar to this-- one of the founders of Indeed e-mailed me a week or two ago when this feature launched.

You need to do a -tuesday for Ruby.. there are tons of jobs listed for Ruby Tuesday, and also add a "Cold Fusion" since there are a lot of people that spell it with a space in it.

OO, component-based cfmx lends itself very well to developing an MVC2 framework (like rails, struts, etc.) We have our own cfmx MVC2 framework, complete with data abstraction layer, called "Aqueduct." Still deciding whether to use it internally or to Open Source it.

Both ruby and rails should be included in the search. Probably the most accurate version would be: http://www.indeed.com/jobtrends?q=coldfusion+OR+%22cold+fusion%22%2Cruby+OR+rails+-tuesday But keep in mind, both of these programming languages still have fairly low profiles compared to PHP, JSP, Perl and the wicked ASP.NET. So why argue about which is better when there are bigger fish to fry? http://www.indeed.com/jobtrends?q=coldfusion+OR+%22cold+fusion%22%2Cruby+OR+rails+-tuesday%2Cphp%2Cperl%2Cjsp%2Casp.net+OR+asp
