  • Programming languages

    programming language photo
    The choice of the programming language is a critical decision for the development of any project, which affects all the project lifecycle and the correct choice can make the project successful as well as incorrect choice can easily break it. Ruby's dynamic nature and its abilities and ease for extensions as well as the presence of the powerful web development frameworks built for it makes it an ideal choice to quickly develop advanced web applications and deploy them within tight terms. To make the web applications even more interactive and easy to use we utilise the full power of the JavaScript and CoffeeScript (coupled with powerful frameworks like jQuery, Angular.js, Ember.js and many others) on the client side.
  • Ruby

    The choice of Ruby as our mainstream development languages for the web applications is the choice we've made after many years of experience with other languages. The languages we previously worked with (and which we can take for modifications and refactoring) include Java, PHP, Perl and many others. But the time does not stand still and the new more advanced languages appear, they become mature, gaining the audience and community support. All our experience so far proves that the choice of Ruby is a great balance of the power, efficiency of development, availability of the documentation and support.
  • PHP

    Though we tend more and more to developing the projects with Ruby and Ruby on Rails PHP still remains one of our priorities when it comes to the support and extending the existing applications. We have vast experience with pure PHP development, coupled with bleeding edge frameworks like Zend, Yii, CodeIgniter. We also have been working with WordPress to produce custom themes and plugins for it.
  • JavaScript and CoffeeScript

    To make the web application truly responsive and interactive, we leverage the power of JavaScript and CoffeeScript. To produce modern web application, we utilize these languages together with libraries and frameworks like jQuery, jQueryUI, Prototype, Node.js, Amber.js, Angular.js and many others. Our experience with these languages and frameworks lets us produce the solutions both reliable, high performing and work across all the major browsers on all the major devices in use to access the Web these days.

    database photo
    The modern dynamic web application is just unimaginable without efficient backend storage. And the choice of the backend storage we make while evaluating the project is based on thorough analysis of the project requirements gathered from its prospective users. We take into the data volumes to store in the database, its volatility, how many people will be accessing it at once and many other considerations. Whenever possible we are using the open source solutions for optimal budget usage. But if open source solution is not sufficient we are ready to use heavy weight solutions based on Oracle, and MS-SQL server. Fortunately, Ruby and Ruby on Rails have powerful features to make development as independent from database provider as possible, allowing you to easily switch between database engines later with minimal (if any) changes to the codebase.
  • MySQL

    MySQL relational database is a great choice for the majority of the small and medium sized web projects. MySQL unique ability to provide different storage engines depending on the application needs, full compliance to SQL standards, support of transactions and many other features coupled with open source origin give it a competitive edge over the competitors. Small footprint and ease of maintenance add up to the MySQL advantages greatly.
  • PostgreSQL

    If MySQL is insufficient for the purposes of your projects, but you still would like to use open source solution, PostgreSQL can be the best fit in this case. It can be the right choice if you need to handle higher data volumes or you need more advanced support of the storage procedures language. If you already have another database engine used for your project (like MySQL for instance) we can offer you the choice to migrate it to the PostgreSQL as well.
  • NoSQL Family

    If the data you need to store are not naturally structured as entity-relations and/or you do not need transactions support it makes sense to consider the choice of NoSQL database to store your project's data. Together with smaller footprint you will get faster access times. We have prior experience with MongoDB, CouchDB, Redis flavors.

    platform  photo
    The choice of the platform on which your project is going to run is one of the most critical things to decide upon. And the beauty of Ruby coupled with Ruby on Rails is that both are cross-platform and the decision of the platform can be done when the project is already implement, tested and ready for production deployment. Depending on the scale of the project we can offer you a choice of the setups either in the virtual environment, on the dedicated server or in the cloud environment. Each of this options has its pros and cons - please feel free to contact us to get an advice on which is the best choice for your project. We can also help you migrate your application from one platform to another with minimal (if any) downtime and as fast as possible.
  • Clouds

    More and more applications are moving to the clouds these days. The benefits are obvious - the cloud solution is flexible in terms of getting the necessary resources as your application grows. You can start with minimal resources package and upgrade on as needed basis without a necessity for downtime or new hardware installation or upgrade. Or if you have just pikes of resources consumption you do not even need to upgrade. After moving to the cloud, you do not have to worry about the hardware. The accessibility is also a strong side of the cloud solution. We have many years of experience working with Amazon cloud services and can offer you the optimal breakdown of which services you'd better use for your project at each stage.

    When you are ready to choose the right operating system for your production setup Unix (or its Linux flavor) is just unbeatable to reach the balance of stability, performance, accessibility and cost efficiency. Our preference for the production setups is among RedHat, CentOS, and Ubuntu, with which we have been working in the majority of cases. But if you have some unique requirements which lead to the other choice - just let us know and we will take care of the rest. Unix also is a natural choice for cloud setups, as well as for Ruby and Ruby on Rails deployments.

    frameworks photo
    For an efficient development of web application and to avoid "implementing a wheel" for each application being implemented the web development framework has to be used. The right choice of the development framework can save a great deal of time as the developers do not have to implement common pieces of functionality which are reused in many web projects. It is a powerful approach to reuse mature framework like Ruby on Rails. If you leverage such a framework the tasks like the mapping of the data in the relational DB tables, HTTP requests/responses management, building the interface for the user (and many, many others) are already implemented for you and reused in thousand of other web projects.
  • Ruby On Rails

    Ruby on Rails power, flexibility and ease of use is already appreciated by thousands of organizations from startups to multi-billion dollar corporations. If you are looking to get most of your investment in short terms and want to be sure you will get the easily expandable and supportable solution - Ruby on Rails is a natural fit. Ruby on Rails has also a very strong support from the community as well as a huge codebase of the libraries to choose from. Its integration with testing frameworks allows to produce even more robust applications and support them long term with ease.
  • Zend, Yii, CodeIgniter and others

    The experience we have with the development frameworks based on other languages is not limited to the ones in the header. We have previously worked with other frameworks based on PHP, Perl and Java. Currently, we do support the projects based on the above frameworks. And of course, we actively use JavaScript mainstream frameworks and libraries like jQuery, jQueryUI, Prototype, Amber.js, Angular.js, Node.js and others.
