Ruby on Rails

Old or new,

Durable is the answer to your Ruby problems.

Did You Know…

The President of Durable Programming, David Berube, wrote two books on Ruby and Ruby on Rails: Practical Ruby Gems and Practical Reporting with Ruby on Rails. He also co-wrote Practical Rails Plugins.

We really like Ruby. It’s a great programming language: dynamic, and general-purpose, so you can use it in a lot of industries. Ruby on Rails is a great web framework; it’s simple to learn but powerful enough for even complex applications, and you can use it for anything from small internal projects to big customer facing sites.

We have experience using Ruby from 1.0 to 3.0 and beyond, and we can help you upgrade if you need. Of course, we’ve used Ruby on Rails and Sinatra, from ancient versions to those more current. 

We work with pure Ruby, Ruby on Rails, Sinatra, or whatever else you might be running – we work on both legacy projects and greenfield projects, whether you choose to use the framework or not.

We can help with a wide range of Ruby projects, including web applications, command-line tools, batch scripts, and other programming tasks that don’t use a framework.

Of course, we are not limited to web development: Ruby can be used to build anything in any domain that you might want. We’ve worked with a wide variety of Ruby-based projects, from Ruby applications to web applications.

In fact, Ruby can be used to leverage other technologies quite well; when we work with Ruby applications, we have a wide variety of experience with adjunct technologies: from MySQL databases to Redis, from PostgreSQL to MongoDB – we have experience working with all of these.

We’ve also used many Rails plugins – popular because of the rapid and prolific development of plugins, and their ease of use. We’ve worked with plugins such as Omniauth, CarrierWave, ActiveScaffold, and many others. 

You might say we “wrote the book” on Ruby Gems, the libraries used with Ruby – or at least our president did, David Berube, who wrote a book called “Practical Ruby Gems,” which was published in 2007.

RubyGems
