ARCHIVE / What is Ruby?

Ruby is an interpreted programming language that has gained favor recently due to its use with the Ruby on Rails web application development framework.  Though technically the second youngest programming language in widespread use for web application development, PHP being the youngest, Ruby lay effectively dormant for many years before attracting a large following in the mid 2000s.
