What is Ruby?

Serge van den Oever

Never heard of Ruby? Its that new hot language that is at the tipping point of blowing away all existing languages;-)

Read about it at, and of course don’t forget the great Ruby on Rails framework at that lets you build a data driven, Ajax style web site garanteed under 15 minutes. And the book “Agile web development with Rails” is absolutely a great reading.

What’s Ruby?

Ruby is the interpreted scripting language for quick and easy object-oriented programming. It has many features to process text files and to do system management tasks (as in Perl). It is simple, straight-forward, extensible, and portable.

Oh, I need to mention, it's totally free, which means not only free of charge, but also freedom to use, copy, modify, and distribute it.
