Introducing Ruby

Abstract

Ruby is a dynamic, object-oriented, programming language with an expressive syntax. It takes inspiration from several languages such as Smalltalk, Lisp, and Perl, adding features that make it very pleasant to program with. In recent years, Ruby exploded in popularity mainly thanks to the success of web development frameworks such as Ruby on Rails and Sinatra. However, it is also used with success in many other different contexts such as computer security (Metasploit), voice communications (Adhearsion), and server configuration (Opscode Chef and Puppet), to name just a few.
