Ruby on Rails development
We started using Ruby on Rails in 2008 and it eventually became our main area of expertise and our platform of choice. Besides providing Ruby on Rails development services our engineers contribute to the platform to make it better.
Why Ruby on Rails?
We adore using RoR since it is flexible and versatile. But the main reason why we love it is that creating working code with Rails gives a developer a lot of fun and joy. Ruby on Rails allows developers to develop applications the customers need. It puts irrelevant things aside and directly brings the developer into business cases.
The most powerful feature of Ruby on Rails platform is its community. There are thousands of friendly, eager and passionate people all over the world who contribute to the Rails platform. The spirit of the community inspires engineers and makes finding solutions a breeze.
What we use RoR for?
Ruby on Rails is an accomplished instrument. We use it to:
Start new projects
From a proof of concept to a minimum viable product. Our developers jump into actual tasks so that the customer could see the first working version of their application in several days. The code always stays flexible to rapidly respond to changing requirements or new ideas. The customer can try a lot of things figuring out what ideas work best. This way, they can focus on their vision and project business goals.
Grow projects further
Anadea provides Ruby on Rails web development services on an ongoing basis. RoR allows our engineers to come up with elegant solutions when implementing enhanced logic and complex workflows. For most common tasks there are ready-to-use open source modules (gems) that are built and maintained by Rails community so that engineers could use them and not reinvent the wheel.
Maintain projects started by other teams
Sometimes project owners have to transfer their projects from one software development company to another. Because of code readability and maturity of testing frameworks, benefits of Ruby on Rails shine in such situations. A new skilled team can always take a Rails code base and continue improving it.
Also, we find Ruby on Rails to be the right choice for:
Mobile API development
Many mobile applications require web back-ends to store data, communicate with other users, publish pictures and so on. Such back-ends are usually built with modern web technologies, such as HTTP and JSON, available in Rails out-of-the box.
Integration with third party services
Ruby on Rails is handy when handling external APIs, dealing with payment gateways, accounting platforms, etc. Many popular web services even provide RoR-based gems as part of their software.
