Ruby saw a spike in popularity between 2010-2016, but it seems like the industry is trending towards Python.
So my question is, why should I continue with Ruby versus moving to Python?  Has Python killed Ruby?

Thank you.

In my opinion, no language can kill another that holds good for Python and Ruby.
Languages get their acceptance, popularity based on no of things ...that is
the ecosystem that can comprise of (adaptability, acceptability, developer support
forums, books, conferences .........etc)

When you have a very good ecosystem the popularity raises many folds.
