Ruby

Ruby is a programming language that was created more than 20 years ago by Yukihiro Matsumoto a.k.a. “Matz”.

Ruby is known among programmers for a terse, uncluttered syntax. By most measures of programming language popularity, Ruby ranks among the top ten. Like Java or the C language, Ruby is a general-purpose programming language, though it is best known for its use in web programming.

Ruby’s key advantage is RubyGems, the package manager that makes it easy to create and share software libraries (gems) that extend Ruby and help you build complex websites.

Ruby on Rails

Ruby on Rails is a software library that extends the Ruby programming language. It’s creator David Heinemeier Hansson created it in 2005 and gave it the name “Ruby on Rails,” though it is often just called “Rails.”

Rails is a framework for building websites. As such, Rails establishes conventions for easier collaboration and maintenance.

Rails combines the Ruby programming language with HTML, CSS, JavaScript and other web technologies to help creating web application faster, more efficient and more profound.

Ruby on Rails has all the required agility and power and agility to build robust, fast, safe and scalable web applications. Focusing on simplicity and productivity, we use this excellent framework to deliver fully-fledged software solutions and reinforce it with our own expertise to add extra value for your business.

Why do we choose Ruby on Rails (a.k.a. RoR)?

  • With RoR we can develop complex, safe, flexible, scalable and functional web applications much faster
  • RoR was built to increase programming efficiency and quality
  • RoR is fully compatible with other programming languages like Javascrypt, C, Python etc.
  • In RoR the database logic is separate from the application so the solutions can be migrated with ease, and with as little downtime as possible.
  • In RoR every bit of code has its own place. It simplifies bug detection and correction, and you can quickly get new developers up to speed.
  • RoR is an ever developing cutting edge platform. PHP platforms like Cake PHP are always one step behind.
  • With RoR you can get most advanced web features out there.
  • RoR is an open-source software, it is free, does not require expensive server systems and the maintenance is relatively inexpensive.
  • RoR is fully compatible with Agile Development – it allows flexible development, the application can be adopted to ever changing requirements. No more long-term development plans that smashes after the first contact with the customer.
