Ruby is an interpreted language written by Yukihiro "matz" Matsumoto that originates from Japan.

It is a language that combines

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

He has often said that he is “trying to make Ruby natural, not simple,” in a way that mirrors life.

Since its public release in 1995, Ruby has drawn devoted coders worldwide. In 2006, Ruby achieved mass acceptance. The TIOBE index, which measures the growth of programming languages, ranks Ruby as #11 among programming languages worldwide. Much of the growth is attributed to the popularity of software written in Ruby, particularly the Rails web framework.
