For the last six months, I have been working with two other individuals to develop a framework for comparing web application technology platforms. The purpose of the framework is to provide a concrete, objective assessment of current web application technology platforms. The framework is also customizable, so that a company or individual can change the input parameters and select a technology that is right for their needs. As part of the framework development process, we evaluated seven different web application technology platforms:
- Java (Struts/Hibernate)
- Perl (CGI)
- PHP (Cake)
- Python (Django)
- Ruby (Rails)
We performed an extensive review of these languages, and even built the same two web applications in every language to collect data and compare the platforms. We recently completed our research and are ready to share what we have learned.
This Wednesday (06/27), there is a huge Arizona .NET User Group “Uber Meeting” being held at the Phoenix Symphony Hall. Myself, Ed Buksoki, and Todd Ellermann have been invited to provide a 30 minute presentation at this event about our research and findings. Scott Guthrie and Stefan Schackow are the main headliners, and will be presenting about Microsoft Silverlight and ASP.NET.
If you’re in the Phoenix area, this is an event you will not want to miss.
