Agile way of coding

In an age where talks over agility gains prominence , programmers are expected to deliver quality results in minimum time. So it's advisable to reduce the application build time with whatever ways possible. Writing fewer lines of code to deliver the same output and writing code easier to maintain is going to have a great positive impact on the build time. Here lies the possibility of using a language like python which increases agility and delivers results faster.

It does not matter if you learn, python, java, php, html etc. what matters is the level of commitment irrespective of the kind of project at hand. As long as there are many frameworks on a programming language, there are many ways to write less and output more. But the big question here is why do I want to learn Ruby?...is it beacause person A is learning it ?

@Awele Omeligwe Ruby is a slightly better Python with not as much libraries and support. I wasn't saying to learn it, only that it generally produces less lines of code for the same tasks as Python. Python however still is pretty good in reducing lines on its own, just not the best.

agile is not about speed. That is a common myth. It’s about adaptability. If you spend a year writing code only to find out what you created does not meet the unspoken requirements, you will have a hard time meeting those requirements. If you spend two weeks on code and then find the unspoken requirements, you can adapt your approach and code now and get to the right place. The early course correction means getting the final correct delivery sooner, but doesn’t mean more code was written in less time.
