At a Glance: Ruby on Rails

Initially released in 2005, Ruby on Rails is a web development framework that allows programmers to use the Ruby programming language to build applications for the web. Whether you’re looking to build a scalable website for your startup or enhance your existing site, a Ruby on Rails developer can kick-start your next web project.
A Ruby on Rails developer can rapidly prototype, test, and build powerful web applications that can handle large volumes of traffic. They can use the Rails application programming interface (API) and extensive package library (RubyGem) to streamline the process of developing creative solutions to complex problems, like communicating large amounts of data between the server and a user’s browser. Like all web development frameworks, Ruby on Rails supports the client-side model-view-controller (MVC) architecture, while taking advantage of code readability, scalability, and programmer efficiency of Ruby on the server-side. The result is a marriage between Ruby and the typical front-end development languages of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript that allows Ruby on Rails developers to get more work done in fewer lines of code. Ruby on Rails developers on Upwork can use Agile development practices to build RESTful, scalable, and dynamic applications for the web.
