        Even if ruby is slow, optimizing the code can by enough to handle many requests per second. When this is not enough, you can cache a lot of requests. Also, it is posible that not all of github is writen in ruby.

        A very used practice is to use rails for the 90% of the app and other framwork/language for the 10% of the app that has the most trafic (most of the time an api). For example, gitlab use go for the git part (api) and ruby on rails for the rest.
