What is CircleCI?
CircleCI is a cloud-based continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) platform that helps developers build and ship their code faster, more easily, and with confidence. With CircleCI you can automate the testing, building, deploying, and monitoring of applications from a single console with a fully integrated experience. Circleci scales with your business needs. Simple, extensible DevOps software that is an order of magnitude faster than Gitlab-CI or Travis-CI. It offers more options for configuration, has low impacting resource requirements and makes collaborating on pipeline tasks an effortless experience.
What is Ruby?
Ruby is not just a programming language, but an entire philosophy about programming. It makes programming fun, productive, and rewarding. Most programs consist of code that needs to be organized into functions. And so most Ruby programs consist of classes and modules containing useful functions for interacting with the real world, operating on text, working with objects, creating GUIs, doing system administration tasks, building web applications… you name it. Ruby is at its heart a toolkit for accessing existing libraries like OpenSSL and providing something like Visual Basic style syntactic sugar to make working with them fun.
