Chris Eidhof, writing at his blog:

The cool kids seem to be doing Go and Elixir these days. It'd have been lots of fun. However, I went for one of the most boring choices: Ruby on Rails.


With Haskell, there would have been a decent chance that I would be the only one even being able to build the project. With Rails, none of the people we work with had to learn anything new: they were productive immediately.

I used Rails for a while, then migrated to Go months ago. And I've been using it full time since then.

Learning Go was exciting and fun, but it came with its challenges. However, from my experience, the Go community is as (or more) willing to help newcomers as the Rails community.

(Also, I find writing Go more fun than writing RoR.)
