I'm considering developing a consumer focused web application that
will use lots of graphs. These graphs need to be manipulated using
controls such a sliders, increase/decrease buttons, etc and the graphs
will need to dynamically change in real time. Drag and drop
functionality within the graphs would be a huge plus. I am a project
manager, not a developer, and I am exploring the most appropriate
technologies to use. Besides the dynamic UI capability, I will need
simple, scalable, and secure code that can be built fast and modified
easily in a agile dev environment.
I would really appreciate someone helping understand the benefits and
risks associated with each of the technologies listed, with a focus on
ROR. IF you can point to relevant samples or current products/sites
outside of the 37Signals links, that would be a big help too.
Thanks in advance!
