According to the Evans Data Emerging Markets Development Survey, over one in five developers in the emerging markets of China, India and Latin America use Ruby for some of their development work, compared with only 10 percent in North America or Western Europe.
Evans Data officials said the study surveyed 400 developers and found that in the three emerging markets, as well as in Eastern Europe, developers showed a much stronger interest in the use of Ruby than in more well-established development regions. Developers in these areas also were more upbeat about the future of the language. Optimism about Ruby was particularly strong in India, though it was also strong in China and Latin America, Evans Data said.
