Ruby is a dynamic object-oriented programming language that is used to build programs and websites. Yukihiro Matsumoto produced it in the mid-1990s, and it was initially released in 1995.
One of the oldest programming languages, Ruby has lost popularity among developers, but that does not stop it from being one of the favorites. On their official website they define it as a dynamic and open source language, focused on simplicity and productivity. It has a syntax that is easy to read, making it ideal for beginners and developers with little experience.
Among the most popular aspects of Ruby are its speed of development, ease of learning, and great documentation, with libraries full of information for developers.
