BigBinary has been working with Ruby on Rails for 10+ years. We were early adopters of Ruby on Rails after seeing how much more productive we could be with Rails than other technologies.
As we worked more and more with Ruby on Rails, our passion for it grew. As we started to understand the nuts and bolts of Ruby on Rails, we started contributing to Ruby on Rails. This helped us be even better at Ruby on Rails and in the process we wrote many blogs on the relevant topics.
Over the years, we have made tons of open-source contributions to Ruby on Rails code. BigBinary team members are constantly sending pull requests, reviewing other contributors’ pull requests, and giving back to the Rails community.
BigBinary has been a huge asset for Gumroad. They've helped us ship features we wouldn't have been able to otherwise. If you’re looking for a ruby/rails-focused dev shop, they have my full endorsement!
Both Ruby and Rails are continually changing, and we need to keep up. When Ruby or Rails adds a new feature, we study the pull requests and commits going beyond the headlines. This gives us a deep understanding of how the framework runs. Then, we craft blog posts about what we have learned, and so far, we have published more than 300 blog posts.
We solve real business needs. Some clients engage us to build a functional prototype in just a few weeks. With others, we become their entire development team for years after the initial engagement. Some applications need to HIPAA compliant, while others scale to massive size with complex payment processing.
BigBinary has contributed to open source projects like Ruby on Rails, React.js, jQuery, Sinatra, Backbone.js, Spree, BabelJS and many more. In addition to contributing, we observe how these open-source projects are managed, and we run our projects using the same principles of collaboration and open discussion.
