My favourite programming language to use to build digital products for the web is Ruby.

I prefer the Rails gem as my go-to web framework on top Ruby because my personal philosophy of Software Development is strongly aligned with the Rails doctrine.

I like having Node JS installed on my development environment. Leveraging my JavaScript experience for the server side is a compelling idea.

Furthermore, the Node ecosystem is vast and powerful — especially for software developers.

Build tools such as Webpack go hand-in-hand with the Ruby and Rails world and allow you to combine something like React with Rails if you want.
