Ruby on Rails Web Development

Powerful Web and Mobile Applications in a fraction of time

MescalDesign has deep experience with Ruby on Rails being one of the early adopters of the framework. We started using Ruby on Rails for web and mobile development before it was released (since 2005) and our team has contributed code to the Rails core as well as the vibrant Rails ecosystem.

Why Rails?

Ruby on Rails is an open-source web framework optimized for high productivity.

Rails helps us deliver a great quality product faster (at least half the time compared with other frameworks) It also makes us be agile, working in one week iterations. Performed effectively, one week iterations produce tighter feedback loops and help keep story scope small and manageable.

Why TDD?

Test-Driven Development (TDD) is a continuous cycle of writing tests, developing code to make those tests pass and then refactoring. The great benefit of TDD is in exploring the interface to the code before it was written, so the result is less code, cleaner design, more productive development team and a happier client.

Custom Web Applications

We work with small startups and large corporations to develop prototypes, launch ideas into beta, scale existing web applications and supplement internal development teams. We are focused on building web applications using the Ruby on Rails framework. Our company has one of the most experienced Ruby on Rails teams and we are actively contributing to the Rails ecosystem since 2005.

Our agile development process ensures that your application is delivered on time and within budget with the features you need to make your venture a success.

We excel at designing and developing scalable, high-performance, highly-available web solutions and we have extensive knowledge of Open Source technologies, Cloud computing, Web 2.0 mashup integrations, integration with e-commerce payment modules and web crawling. We have experience with all the Amazon Web Services (AWS).

We are fully transparent with our clients, each client having access to the project management and ticketing system we use to work on the priorities, bugs, features and feedback. Short iterations, demos early and often, and constant and strong communication of vision and progress are all integral pieces of our development process. Our team has worked together for many years and that gives us a high level of trust between each other and our clients.

Search Engine Optimisation

Adhering to Web Standards and writing well structured HTML makes our websites easy for search engines like Google to index.
