BigBinary has been working with Ruby on Rails for 10+ years. We were early adopters of Ruby on Rails after we saw how much more we could get done in a week with Rails, compared to other technologies.
As we worked more and more with Ruby on Rails, our passion for Ruby on Rails grew. We started understanding how Ruby on Rails actually works. Since Ruby on Rails is open source, we started contributing bug fixes and slowly graduated to implementing new features in Rails.
Over the years, we have made tons of contributions to Ruby on Rails code. BigBinary team members are constantly sending pull requests, reviewing pull requests and giving back to the community.
Some of our projects are small, like building a functional prototype in four weeks, and in some projects we are still part of the development team more than three years after the initial engagment. Some applications need to be HIPAA compliant and some applications deal with multiple payment processors.
When Ruby or Rails adds a new feature, we study the pullrequests and commits to go beyond the headlines. This gives usa better understanding of how the whole thing works. So far, using thisprocess we have published more than 230 blog posts.
We have published series like:
Our blogs are regularly covered by publications like Ruby Inside and Ruby Weekly Newsletter.SEE ALL ARTICLES
