What is Ruby?

An article What is Ruby best descibes it - Ruby is a pure object-oriented programming language with a super clean syntax that makes programming elegant and fun. Ruby successfully combines Smalltalk's conceptual elegance, Python's ease of use and learning, and Perl's pragmatism. Ruby was created in 1993 by a Japanese, Yukihiro Matsumoto, a.k.a "Matz", and has started to become popular worldwide in the past few years as more English language books and documentation have become available.
