Oct 17, 2013 at 17:34 comment added brichins @ruakh I was having trouble figuring out which answer to leave this comment on - you're right, this one doesn't address that specific tradeoff (although it does point out the workplace tension that could result). I probably should have also specifically said that the OP should be sure he's talked with all the decision makers (without going over anyone's head) so that if/when the project doesn't meet the deadline, he can politely convey "I told you up front that it probably would. Perhaps for the next project we can try Ruby instead?"
Oct 17, 2013 at 3:22 comment added ruakh @brichins: I think one of the big problems with this answer is that it actually doesn't point out what you say it does!
Oct 16, 2013 at 21:26 comment added brichins As this (and several of the answers) point out, there is a tradeoff between initial creation on your time and deployment/maintenance by everyone else. Make a decent (but respectful) effort to see if the Pointy-Hairs are willing to make that trade, but if not just respect their decision and enjoy getting paid to learn something new on company time.
