Ruby

Ruby is a dynamic, interpreted, open source programming language with a focus on simplicity and productivity.

Ruby is a language of careful balance. Its creator, Yukihiro “Matz” Matsumoto, blended parts of his favorite languages (Perl, Smalltalk, Eiffel, Ada, and Lisp) to form a new language that balanced functional programming with imperative programming.

Since its public release in 1995, Ruby has drawn devoted coders worldwide.

In 2006, Ruby achieved mass acceptance.

With active user groups formed in the world’s major cities and Ruby-related conferences filled to capacity.

Ruby is ranked among the top 10 on most of the indices that measure the growth and popularity of programming languages worldwide (such as the TIOBE index).

Much of the growth is attributed to the popularity of software written in Ruby, particularly the Ruby on Rails web framework.

Ruby is also completely free. Not only free of charge, but also free to use, copy, modify, and distribute.
