Hi there,

I am quite an experienced PHP developer but I am thinking about developing a MVC application but using rails instead not only for another string to my bow but also for a change. The application is quite challenging and mainly deals with delivering YouTube content through the YT API.

I was wondering if this is a wise move in that the learning curve from PHP to Rails may be too intense, could you please advise me if this is so and also tell me a liittle bit about the dis/advantages of using Rails as opposed to existing PHP based frameworks like ZEND and CodeIgniter?
