You may wonder if it's worth learning Ruby on Rails in 2020. In this post we'll seek to answer that.
The language popularity (Ruby) itself is declining, but it's not going to die soon because of legacy code.
For the next 2-5 years, I think it's a good investment of your time to learn it. Of course, no language stays popular forever (see Cobol, Fortran, Pascal)
When learning Ruby, you want to learn the Rails framework. The Rails framework is designed for building websites and applications. It's similar to Django (Python) or Zend Framework (PHP).
If you are on Linux, you may want to update your Ruby version, because the version is often not up-to-date.
$ ruby -v ruby 2.5.0
Eitherway, the conceptual skills remain the same and Ruby is here to stay with us for a while. Ruby is a great language to get started in the world of programming.
