At a Glance: Ruby

Designed and developed by famed programmer Yukihiro “Matz” Matsumoto in 1995, Ruby is a dynamic, open-source, imperative, object-oriented programming language that emphasizes simple code and programmer productivity. Whether you’re looking to build desktop software or web applications, an experienced Ruby programmer can guide you through the process from start to finish.
Ruby programmers and developers on Upwork can quickly build and prototype the back end of your website. Perfect for websites that see high volumes of traffic, the clean, readable, and concise code encouraged by the Ruby programming paradigm makes Ruby development projects naturally scalable and easy to maintain. Developers can use the Ruby on Rails web development framework with powerful libraries called “gems,” to rapidly build and develop dynamic websites in fewer lines of code. They can also use the powerful cloud-based development platform Heroku to quickly bring your project from concept to URL. Ruby developers on Upwork can build inherently RESTful and scalable applications that can handle large volumes of data.
