Ruby on Rails Web App Development
What is Ruby on Rails?
"Convention over configuration" and "don’t repeat yourself" — once we heard those, we knew that from that moment on it would be our way of coding. We love Ruby on Rails. It’s optimized for programmer happiness and that means better software for everyone.
Ruby on Rails saves us time, so we can build applications faster. More than 5,000 people have already contributed to the development framework, showing support for the idea that building new software can be both quick and fun. Rails is focused on providing as simple and clear syntax for developers as possible.
Writing in popular languages can be frustrating at times and it’s understandable — unnecessary methods and a lot of code to create a simple solution is something that developers are struggling with everyday. Instead of focusing on business problems, we’re often too busy trying to apply a basic idea into reality, working with build blocks that require much effort.
Ruby on Rails is trying to solve many common problems in software development. Instead of creating the same service that is handling fetching data from the database over and over, ActiveRecord is a plug and play solution that is able to do it in minutes, using only a few lines of code. You want to send an email with a notification, have an admin panel to overview the data and be able to update the necessary information? Same thing, this problem was already solved and is part of the Ruby on Rails framework — so developers can implement it using small amounts of code and focus on what they really like — solving new problems.
Every app is different, so custom software development requires us to build things that were never implemented before. This doesn’t mean that we have to start from scratch though — the Ruby on Rails developers community is very active and also very open. Weshare knowledge and code using plugins called gems, and there are tens of thousands of them. When building things like authentication, role management, connecting to APIs and async processing, although they’re custom for each application, we can still use some of the open source code support to speed up development.
Solid foundation of Ruby on Rails also allows custom software development without worrying about underlying problems with security, bugs and scaling. Core pieces of software were already reviewed by thousands of developers, so all that’s left for our strong technical team is defining the business logic layer and building a great product.
Thanks to the structured system of implementing new features, the possibilities of Ruby on Rails in web development are limitless. It’s an efficient framework built for rapid development — something appreciated not only by clients — Ruby on Rails developers love it too!
