Ruby is a language designed in 1995 by Yukihiro Matsumoto. It was designed with the needs of coders – not computers – in mind and aims to be a joy to work with.
Ruby has gained recent popularity through a web application framework called Ruby on Rails. Learning Ruby on Rails is a good choice because it enables you to build powerful and well-designed web applications with cutting-edge technologies.
Plus, the Ruby language is fun to work with and being able to write it opens up many more possibilities beyond just web coding. It’s a great modern language to train yourself in.
