rubyWhat if programming languages were real persons like you and me? What if they were parts of families and had relations and affairs? Have you ever thought of going to a supermarket and Visual Basic was the young woman waiting in the line in front of you?

Ruby is a good friend of Groovy. She is 20 years old and she is one of the upcoming names in Devel City mainly because of her professional maturity and the way she manages to do a job cleanly and fast. Although Scala, Groovy’s sister, got a big job from Ruby’s hands (case of Twittorix), Ruby is still considered as one of the best professionals out there.

Ruby, became one of the most successful women in City of Devel, after the creation of her Rails company and got a lot of fame. She also inspired many other famous women in Devel City to start their own Rails-like companies with PHP being one of them with Symfoniac LTD.

She is a very calm person and not fond of surprises. When she works, she wants to have everything there as helpful as it can be for her and her co-workers. Most of the time she applies the POLS principle to her job.
Some Devel City residents state that, if Perl goes away one day, Ruby will do the job as good as she does and with more freedom than with Perl.

Ruby believes in one principle: “Divide and Conquer”, this is why she has divided all of her company groups into Gems. Ruby just needs to use a gem to do a particular job.

ruby_railsI have never bothered studying Ruby nor Rails because of its ever confusing ways to even install it in your system, whether they be in Windows or Mac OS. Really. I managed to install part of it in Windows, and made a simple application but got stuck at a certain point where I gave up. When a friend of mine told me to study it because the Ruby industry is pretty big and can offer big cash driven development opportunities, I gave it another try to install it. This time in my Mac OSX.

I still had a hard time again. But voila! I read that Mac OS Leopard comes with Ruby and Rails. Even its previous version Tiger comes with it. So I guess I can start learning right away. But before that, just to make sure, update the following Ruby related technologies with the latest version. The following commands will do just the thing.

Those are it. Now you are ready to go and start learning Ruby and Rails.
