Ruby

Ruby on Rails is a great choice for creating powerful and flexible web applications. Thanks to its minimalistic nature, support for scripting, and an abundance of existing components, modules and plugins for a broad range of business cases, Ruby is fantastic for fast prototyping and cost effective development.

Driven by the success of the Ruby on Rails framework, Ruby is a strong and up-and-coming language among forward-thinking application development organizations, and is playing a particularly important role in the world of software innovation and startups. Ruby on Rails is also often used as a back-end technology for mobile applications requiring RESTful Web services.

Many IT  organizations, in order to avoid the proprietary lock-in of the .NET framework and the complexity of the Java SDK, are considering Ruby on Rails for their next-generation web application development efforts. Even companies already invested in either Microsoft or Java may find value in exploring native versions of Ruby for these platforms.

Why First Line

We are a team of passionate software professionals who live to build applications that delight the customer. And Ruby on Rails makes this easy! For over 4 years, we have been building applications with RoR for web content management, e-commerce, and social networks. We can help you build your awesome web application from scratch, do some performance tuning for an existing application, or help solve problems with scaling if your web business is growing.

We deliver our projects using Scrum, an iterative Agile process. We adhere to the design and coding standards common in the Ruby community, such as Convention over Configuration, and DRY (Don’t Repeat Yourself). In addition, we use Test Driven Development (TDD) with RSpec, pair programming, and continuous integration (with tools like Jenkins and Cruise Control). For version control, we typically rely on GIT or SVN, and for requirements tracking, on tools like Redmine or Jira. For hosting, we have experience working with cloud platforms such as AWS, Heroku, or Rackspace, or can use proprietary environments.

To be able to deliver the most effective web applications, our team has become proficient with a large array of technologies and tools, including MySQL, jQuery, CSS3/HTML5 design, SASS, CoffeeScript, Cucumber, Authlogic, Typus, Airbrake, Braintree and many others.
