In summary, Ruby and Java Script are two different programming languages with distinct purposes in web development. Ruby is a dynamic, interpreted language primarily used for building web applications, while Java Script is a client-side scripting language used to enhance website functionality. Java Script is more popular and widely used, but Ruby has a strong and dedicated community of developers. Both languages can be used together in web development, such as integrating Ruby on Rails with Java Script libraries. The ease of learning between Ruby and Java Script is subjective, but many find Ruby to have a more beginner-friendly syntax. In terms of web development, Ruby is better for complex applications while Java Script is better for front-end development and interactivity. Ultimately, the best language to use will depend on the
