Easier, implicit and code over configuration. Although it is easy to start with, later on you need to dive into the concepts and you need to know how stuff works instead of 'just letting RoR handle it.', unfortunately. Luckily there are some smart mentors around here who love to help you!
Throughout all my projects with Angular I found that is hard to get stuck or trapped in a bad practice. In Angular it is very important, after the very easy introduction, to know what is actual happening, to become better at it. That what makes the Angular learning curve a lot stepper after some time, but when you master it beautiful things are to follow ;)
Being able to make environments immutable is like making a linux machine, which is very imperative normally, into a function machine that is predictable and fun to work with again. That's why I use docker for all my deployments, tests and development. I can't say it enough: "Dockerize all the things!"
