Ruby: Result of a Japanese guy that just wanted to be happy programming and made a revolution

Ruby - is a reflective Object Oriented (OO) dynamic language created by
Yukihiro Matsumoto (Matz) in Japan with the objective to rescue the fun
and happiness in programming, designed with principles (see below) to
free programmer's mind from the hindrances of that is usually should
belong to the compiler, leading him to behave more intuitively,
remaining thus the most important tool - the intelligence, and so
creativity, happiness, motivation and productivity.

ruby cuts down the program's own internal data structures when using
containers
iterators and blocks... making it much easier to follow...
