It all began in the mid-1990s, when Japanese programmer Yukihiro “Matz” Matsumoto set out to create a new programming language. He wanted a language that balanced functional programming with imperative programming, and that would be more powerful and user-friendly than existing languages. After much experimentation and refinement, he created Ruby, a dazzling language that quickly captured the hearts of programmers around the world.
But Ruby’s story didn’t end there. In the early 2000s, web developer David Heinemeier Hansson fell in love with Ruby and began using it to build web applications. To make this process even easier, he created Rails, a framework that helped developers create web applications with Ruby more quickly and efficiently.
Together, Ruby and Rails formed a perfect match for web development. Ruby’s simplicity and flexibility made it easy to read and write code, while Rails provided a powerful set of tools and libraries that enabled developers to build complex and scalable web applications. The two quickly became inseparable, and their popularity has only grown over time.
Today, Ruby and Rails are still going strong, and they continue to be used by many developers around the world. Their love story continues to inspire and delight those who are lucky enough to work with them. Whether you’re a seasoned programmer or just starting out, Ruby and Rails are a dynamic duo that will help you create amazing web applications and bring your ideas to life.
