My view of the enterprise software stack I think is different than most. I find that I use C++ and #Qt in many of the roles most used Java and typically in #SipWitchQt and #Bayonne. I also have come to adopt Ruby in those other places where I had used Perl, Python , and PHP in the past, and certainly in preference to Node.js. In particular I am starting to really like Ruby and Sinatra over Python and Flask or Node.js with ExpressJS for writing quick web api and microservices, hence why I am using Sinatra in #PiWitch going forward. I do not pick a language because of popularity, but rather based on whether I can be effective in it for the problem I am trying solve.

We use Sinatra a lot. I love Sinatra for APIs. It's really simple, really lightweight. It's awesome. Sinatra
