Ruby – Redefining digital popularity and security

Birth of Ruby
Matsumoto founded Ruby in the 1990s. Better known as the “cautious balance language”, it was developed with the goal of creating an object-oriented language that was easy to use and secure. The syntax bears witness to a unique appointment of other sophisticated programming applications such as ADA, Smalltalk, Eiffel, Perl and Lisp. This programming language is emerging as a quiet winner lately.
The winning streak of this programming language can be attributed to its versatility and portability across all platforms. Ruby is an open-source web outline that leverages security as one of Ruby’s most promising traits. Entrepreneurial application websites such as HULLU, Shopify, AirBNB, SoundCloud, Ask.Fm, Square and many more have used Ruby and its newly developed counterpart, Ruby on Rails to provide seamless front-end progression and backend operation.
Ruby emerges as a profitable programming language. Its robust code generator requires only a simple command to generate parts of an application. The flexibility of the ubiquitous framework allows the programmer to create sophisticated functions that can be anchored at the core. Critics rightly claim that the programming language offers unlimited flexibility. The language is not complicated, features can be used or removed as needed.
Reasons for the growing popularity of Ruby
1. Ruby has a “fish in water” relationship with most web development frameworks. Renowned web servers like Puna and Unicorn widely use Ruby as their programming language.
2. Ruby is widely deployed in static site generation. Static site generators are quick and easy to deploy, and these sites don’t change often.
3. Ruby is also used in the DevOps and Automation space. Ruby was one of the only programs to support “Heroku”, a better known web deployment platform. It is only recently that “Heroku” is also supported by various other languages.
4. Have you ever thought about how a programmer will develop services that will run simultaneously and successfully on Linux, Mac and Windows operating systems? Well, it will happen because of Vagrant, an open source software that basically uses Ruby as a tool to manage the command line of virtual machines. Vagrant is written and configured using Ruby itself.
5. Ruby is often deployed for data processing. It is used to filter, clean and process data, and is used as a solution to many data resolution problems.
6. ‘Ship’ is often used for data mining. The algorithm integrates Ruby libraries to make the data mining process easy as pie.
Ruby is designed to make a programmer’s life easy and fun. The versatility of the syntax makes it easier for the programmer to develop the website or an application in half the time. Since it is a cost-effective language, it is also very popular with end users. There’s a solid online boot camp that helps emerging Ruby programmers grasp the nuances of the program faster.
