Created by David Heinemeier Hansson in 2003 and supported by a team of more than 2,100 contributors, the popular scripting language Ruby on Rails builds upon the open-source programming language Ruby. Ruby on Rails now has reached the third build of its third version, and tens of thousands of applications have been written for it. Major businesses that use Ruby on Rails include Scribd, Twitter, Groupon, Shopify, and the Yellow Pages.

Ruby on Rails’ proponents laud the language’s ease of use, which allows applications to be built particularly quickly and can generate increased company productivity. Because applications built with Ruby on Rails can be developed so quickly, the language has lowered the cost of developing custom software, bringing specialized applications more easily within the budgets of start-ups and experimental divisions of large companies.
