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.
What is Linuxbrew?
Linuxbrew is a linux port of homebrew, the MacOS package manager. The goal of linuxbrew is to make it easier for people to install software on their home computer. It accomplishes this by making packages available that are built for multiple versions of Linux. Also, by default, packages are installed in your home directory without needing root access on your systems.
