Ruby on Rails
A robust language for rapid web application development.
Ruby is a dynamic open source programming language, designed for ease of use and developer happiness. First released in 1995, Ruby has been a staple of web development for over a decade, particularly when paired with the Rails framework. Ruby on Rails (RoR) was first released in 2005 and is an opinionated full stack framework for building web applications.
Rails has consistently ranked in the top 10-15 programming languages used worldwide over the past twelve years and continues to be a very popular language for web application development. Its readability, large community, and the wide availability of libraries (called Gems) all contribute to its continued popularity.
We’ve used Rails to build everything from prototypes to web apps that process 1M+ hits a day.
We’ve been writing in Rails since 2006; every engineer on our team is a full stack Ruby on Rails developer. We’ve launched dozens of Rails applications for clients over the years.
