Ruby was first designed and developed in the mid-1990s by Yukihiro "Matz" Matsumoto in Japan. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruby_(programming_language) At a Google Tech Talk in 2008 Matsumoto further stated, "I hope to see Ruby help every programmer in the world to be productive, and to enjoy programming, and to be happy. That is the primary purpose of Ruby language."
