Practice: Ruby on Rails
We started our Ruby on Rails practice in the summer of 2013 when Ivan Osadchy joined our team to support Floors USA. Ivan is a senior engineer, who trained and extended our Rails team to 3 full-time people.
Ruby on Rails is currently our #1 tool of choice for building general purpose web application and MVPs. We feel it’s ideal for:
- Prototyping. Rails is all about developing quickly, it has a huge range of libraries for all kind of tasks and an awesome community. So if you’re about to build a complex system, it makes sense to start building it with RoR, which gives you confidence that you can save a lot of development hours down the road.
- Content-centric sites
- Membership sites (My Sensory Locations)
- E-commerce (Floors USA, Encore Editions)
- Back-end API
Virtually anything can be build using the Rails technology stack. Exceptions would be specialized sites for that have good tools out there with a high community adoption levels. Example: WordPress for blogs and micro-sites.
