    I don't think Rails it's a bad choice at all. I think it has fallen out of popularity but it's probably even better than in it's prime time.

    I just hand't considered Rails because I don't know Ruby and learning Python seems more useful nowadays.

    I've actually never written Perl, when I started programming Python had already replaced it. However I've heard good things about Dancer and the CPAN ecosystem in general.

    Definitively Jon Blow (naysayer88) and Casey Muratori (handmadehero).

    I know, they mostly stream programming (Jon does some gaming every now and then). But I find listening to the clack of the keyboard and their usually soothing voice very relaxing. I usually have them on my background.

    As for mainly gaming streams closest I know is Quill18 which usually plays Strategy games (he's streaming right now check it out) although I'm not sure he's super relaxing all the time.

    Oh and check Sinatar if you enjoy retro games, he's streaming now as well.

    I'll edit if I remember anyone else.

    I've considered learning Erlang but I think it's more apt for microservices or server stuff and less for an MVC application.

    Still though, I see many people going towards Elixir so I guess it has something interesting to offer.

    Thanks for the in-depth answer. I've actually been looking at Lumen, I might do with that plus Eloquent ORM. I'll give it a quick try tomorrow.

    As someone who is not mainly a web developer, I can barely grasp the immensity of options when it comes to writing a web application.

    So far everything I've written has been using PHP and the Slim microframework. PHP because I don't use languages like Python/Ruby/JS that much so I didn't have any prior knowledge of those, and I've found myself to be fairly productive with it. Slim because I didn't want a full-blown framework with 200 files to configure.

    I've tried Go because I've used it in the past but I don't see it to be very fit when it comes to websites, I think it's fine for small microservices but doing MVC was a chore, maybe there's a framework out there that solves this.

    As for the frontend I've been trying to use as little JavaScript as possible, always vanilla. As of HTML and CSS I'm no designer so I kind of get by copying code and tweaking things here and there.

    However I've started a slightly bigger project and I don't fancy myself writing everything from scratch (specially security) besides, ORMs can be useful. Symfony4 is what I've been using for a couple of days, but I've had trouble setting up debugging, and the community/docs don't seem that great since this version is fairly new; so I'm considering trying out something more popular like Django.

    So this is why I created the post, I know this will differ greatly depending on the use-case. But I would like to do a quick survey and hear some of your recommendations, both on the backend and frontend. Besides I think it's a good topic for discussion.

    Cheers!
