If you’ve done some rails work like I have, and are getting started with looking at ASP.NET MVC for your .NET work; or you are a .NET guy, and looking at rails for the first time, you will want to see which technologies are available to do things in each platform. I hope the following chart is helpful:

Feature Rails Technology ASP.NET 3.5 Technology
Model View Controller architecture Rails Core (Action Controllers, Views) ASP.NET MVC
Domain model from relational database Active Record ADO.NET Entity Framework
REST Active Resource ADO.NET Data Services
Markup language for MVC frameworks HAML NHAML
Build platform Rake MSBuild
data access, domain, microsoft, patterns, presentation, products, rails, ruby, service, technologies, web services
