Ruby in Simple Terms
Since its public release in 1995, devotees have evangelized Ruby as a dynamic programming language focused on simplicity and productivity. Yukihiro "Matz" Matsumoto, Ruby’s founder, has been quoted as “trying to make Ruby natural, not simple” in a way that mirrors life. He wanted Ruby to be based an elegant syntax that is natural to read and easy to write.
Ruby is dynamically typed and it supports multiple programming paradigms, including procedural, object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming.
Ruby is a high-level, open-source, general-purpose programming language. For years, the TIOBE index has ranked it among the most popular programming languages, and much of this popularity is attributed to software written in Ruby, particularly the Ruby on Rails web framework.
Untold utilizes Ruby on web development projects when applicable. Ruby is not always a great fit, but it has its use cases, especially within scripts in many of our continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) pipeline. You can count on the Untold team to be forthright on our technical and architectural recommendations for any project, and our tech stack shifts with the needs of the software applications we create.
