Ruby 2.1.4 / 1.9.3 / 2.2.0-preview1

An open source programming language with a natural code syntax, easy to learn by beginners, used by experts for advanced applications
Ranked in one of the World's Top 10 most used programming languages, Ruby has been used for lots of known projects across the Web, the most famous being Twitter, a website working mostly on top of a Ruby-based framework.

Ruby is also considered one of the most easiest programming languages to learn. This is because of its natural language, a coding syntax that's very free when it comes to writing and very easy to read because of its usage of natural real-life terms.

This allows its users to freely alter its parts, making it more flexible in many areas like error reporting, testing, building apps and more.

Ruby is dynamic, reflective, general purpose and inspired by Perl with Smalltalk-like features

Ruby, in its philosophy, tries not to restrict the coder. Essential parts of Ruby can be removed or redefined at will, while existing parts can be added upon.

Main features:

  • Simple syntax
  • OOP friendly
  • Cross-platform tested
  • Portable
  • Exception handling
  • Support for C extensions
  • SWIG interface
  • Garbage collections
  • Dynamic loading of object
  • Extension libraries
  • OS independent threading
  • Operator overloading
  • Iterators
  • Closures
