What Client / Server side web based languages are your currently using?

Our back end is all in Rails, and we're working on transitioning from MySQL to Postgres. As far as front end goes, some of our earlier projects were just done with a lot of custom JQuery, one of them is in Backbone, and we're working on evaluating Ember to see if it's viable for our future projects.

Have you ever used Ember.js before (or SproutCore for that matter)?

Yes. I'm on ember app #2.

What kind of applications are you most interested in building?

The University has a large number of legacy database systems, so we're working to rebuild a number of those as fuller-featured, more flexible web based systems.


I write administrative web applications for the Humanities Division at uchicago.
