Very good summary of web frameworks, I'm personally a large fan of Ember for the front-end side. I'd include some notes about what frameworks have testing included or how easy they make it, since it can be easy to overlook for beginners despite being crucial. Ember has a full testing suit ready to use and is easy to set up with continuous integration, another reason I'm a fan.

Also for "Where to Start Learning," I'd also recommend people check out the Hartl "Ruby on Rails Tutorial." It helped me through much of the learning curve I needed for my job, and lowered the learning curve for similar frameworks (like Ember haha)
