While there are a slew of beginner-friendly languages out there, one that generates almost no hype — but really deserves more attention — is Ruby on Rails.
To be clear, Ruby on Rails isn't a programming language, per se. Rather, it's a web application framework: a collection of shortcuts written in Ruby, which enables users to circumvent learning a bunch of esoteric programming jargon while building web apps super fast. Ruby on Rails — unlike, say, the Notorious P.H.P. — won't make you sob after few minutes of coding, because it actually reads like English.
