Ruby is an interpreted, object-oriented programming language and was designed by Yukihiro Matsumoto during the 1990s. Ruby interpreters possess a dynamic type system and automatic memory management. Although similar, it is not influenced by Python, rather, Matsumoto was inspired by Perl, Lisp & Smalltalk. A drawback of interpreted languages however, is that complex applications will run a lot slower in comparison to compiled languages such as C, C++ and Java. However, Matsumoto has been quoted as saying that Ruby’s design follows the Principle of Least Astonishment (POLA) — it is designed for ease-of-use in the end-user and intuitive to write code.
Ruby is one of the easier languages to learn, having a beautifully simple syntax.
