What technology for what puprose & Famous examples
I was looking for a good overview of what web technology is good for what purpose and famous example. I want to learn a new technology but I am not sure about which one. I looked into Ruby on Rails as a friend of mine told me it was great and a lot of fun. I already know PHP/mysql and .NET/Sharepoint.
Does anybody know a good overview?
I'd also be interested in what technologies the "big ones" use and why. Like Facebook (PHP I believe), Twitter (Ruby on Rails) and so on.
