What is Ruby
Yukihiro Matsumoto developed Ruby in the mid-1990s, blending together different elements of various other programming languages.
It was designed specifically for the benefit of software developers and their productivity. Matsumoto describes the design of Ruby as being like a simple Lisp language at its core, more object-oriented than Python, with practical utility like that of Perl, and blocks inspired by higher-order functions. It is a general-purpose programming language that was used to build big websites such as GitHub.
It is mainly used for web applications, standard libraries, servers, and other system utilities. Its advantages are its time efficiency and its tools and libraries.
