Ruby is a programming language created by Yukihiro Matsumoto in the 90’s. The first version was officially released in 1999. It’s similar to C and Java as they are all general purpose programming languages. Moreover, it is one of the most popular programming languages out there and most of it is because of the popularity of Rails.
