Topic: What Language?
I'm really after some advice here. I started learning Rails using the Agile Development book, and have since come away from it and concentrated more on XSLT and XML as my CMS uses it and it seems the natural language to learn coming from an xhtml and css background. Now I know XSLT and Rails are totally different and serve different purposes but I would like to learn them both if possible.
I would also want to learn Ruby too, as that may help me understand Rails more. Why do I want to learn Ruby on Rails? Well because I don't want to learn PHP, because I just think it is far to complicated and from what I have seen with Rails and Ruby it seems a fairly shallower learning curve.
I have also started to notice that Ruby on Rails is fastly becoming a sought after skill.
So does anyone have any advice on what path to take?
