I shy away from strong opinions because I'm as green as one can be in this field (green... field... mwahahah) but I'm guided by an excellent team and honestly, even when we develop in Rails, there are times when requests ought to be written in SQL, which is not only super educational but also makes (some) things faster, depending on how heavy the task is the gain can be huge. And I think that even using frameworks, knowing what's going on and having a curious/ tinkering mindset can allow you to slim down things a lot of times, avoid adding unnecessary components and such. I think what gipsydave5 says is not all theory. Again, a noob's two cents.
