The best person that can give you that answer is yourself. And 
fortunately Ruby allows you to do that quickly.

I recommend that you download a tiral version of Komodo (an IDE for 
dynamic languages with recent Ruby support). And you should already have 
Ruby on your Mac. Then write a few simple programs that help you solve 
problems in your space and see where it goes. The good thing with Ruby 
is that there's an energetic and active community around it with lots of 
free libraries and good forums.

Good luck.
