Matt Gifford, (aka ColdFuMonkeh) twittered an article that has lead me to a startling conclusion: Ruby on Rails is a dead language! Read more to find out why.
The article that Matt references is Ten Dying IT Skills at Global Knowledge. We all know ColdFusion is a dead language, I mean the article nails it on the head: that there are more openings for PHP developers than for ColdFusion developers must mean that there aren't very many jobs for us CF developers. I find it amazing though, that they missed the second conclusion from their job opening comparison: If ColdFusion is a dead language because it only has 2,000 job openings compared to PHP's 11,000 openings, than Ruby on Rails must be a dead language with only 1,500 openings. I'm not sure how such a well researched article could have missed this, but there you have it. Ruby on Rails is a dead language.
