To learn ruby ​​and rails, I trained to develop web applications, but here in Africa, people access the internet from a mobile phone and when I observe their behavior they only use facebook messenger or whatsapp. I do not have a good level in javascript to develop a mobile application. This is why I am looking for application ideas based on sending sms or by whatsapp.

Good news, you can use your existing skills in Ruby and Rails to build those applications. Check out some of the tutorials here (many of which are available in Ruby) and see if they give you some ideas. For some wider perspective on things to do with Ruby and Twilio, check out articles on the Twilio blog tagged Ruby. Hopefully there's some inspiration there!
