Hey people. I'm a backend developer working primarily with PHP7.x and TypeScript, with some experience with Go, but in all honesty, I always had a thing for Ruby.
I've been thinking about learning Ruby and then Rails properly and trying to land a job that would allow me to use them. The only thing that pulls me back is a question of whether or not new stuff is actually created with Ruby/Rails or its mostly legacy code at this point. I'm honestly tired of PHP (mostly community, the language is just fine) and TypeScript doesn't bring to much joy to work with (although it is a great language).
To sum up my question, are there new Rails apps coming out and, with 5-6 years of experience would I have to look for a junior position, given that I've got experience with other languages and know a fair bit of system design, best practices and design patterns?
