Ruby versus Python

What are the pros and cons of each language? If you were to learn one,

There are many opinions on this but most people will tell you that it
doesn't matter that much if you're just trying to learn. There are also a
ton of posts explaining pros/cons of each language. Here's one by a friend
of mine in an infographic:

but note this is about choice for a start-up, not just as a language to
learn coding.
