Ruby on Rails in web development
Ruby on Rails is a development tool consisting of a framework (Rails) and a programming language (Ruby) for building web applications. It’s a common choice for mobile API development and can be used as a back-end technology in mobile app development, alongside cross-platform tools such as React Native.
The “convention over configuration” and “don’t repeat yourself” principles are essential in understanding the strength of Ruby on Rails: they eliminate many repetitive, mundane tasks required in development and configuration. This results in a cleaner, bug-free code, easier troubleshooting, and enhanced productivity.

What’s to like about Ruby on Rails?
Ruby on Rails holds several aces in its sleeve that make it one of the most used web frameworks. The Rails conventions enable quick project kickoff and help developers move between projects. RoR also features a vast number of open-source libraries, which simplify development and updates.
Abundance of gems
Third-party resources are a vital part of the Ruby on Rails ecosystem. When used wisely (i.e. carefully picked and updated), official or third-party plugins and gems, as well as your own resources reused across the application, can work wonders for the development speed, code clarity, and consistency.
The Ruby family
Over the years of exceptional popularity, RoR has gained a robust non-profit community, which results in the availability of battle-tried solutions and seasoned developers. The “convention over configuration” approach and ready-made gems shorten the learning curve, which enables an easy start in the new environment.
Code, test, ship
The Rails community is highly focused on code quality and testing, giving rise to effective tools for automated tests. The culture of testing within RoR ensures robustness of the core software and third-party code (gems). This allows for shipping ready-to-use products relatively fast, without compromising the final quality.
The best of two worlds
Ruby is a powerful and dynamic programming language, yet with a relatively clean syntax and rapid development cycles. Its true potential in web development can be achieved when paired with Rails: the result is an application that is easier to test, check for bugs, and ready to deploy way faster.
It is said that Ruby on Rails app development can be on average 30%—40% faster in comparison with other frameworks. This property of RoR can be a huge asset, especially when it comes to fast prototyping or creating an MVP, and is highly appreciated by startups that need to validate their idea in real market conditions.
What’s in it for you?
Smooth recruiting process
Few startups have the right HR and recruitment procedures to achieve hiring efficiency. If that’s the case, an outsourcing company specialising in recruiting software developers can come to the rescue. Let us help you make headway and find the right Ruby on Rails developers for your team.
Scarcity of skilled developers on your local job market can slow down the development process and delay product release. Don’t let this happen: trust an experienced partner that can provide you with the best match for your company as well as significantly reduce time-to-hire and recruitment costs.
As your application gains more users, you also have to scale up your development efforts to respond to the growing demand. A Ruby on Rails outsourcing company can shape the product team according to your current needs. This way, you have all the required skills at your disposal on every stage of development.
Code quality guarantees correct operation of every app. This can be achieved by following best practices in software development, such as code reviews, test-driven development, design patterns, and Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment. You can be sure that our Rails developers know them all backwards and forwards.
Efficient project management
Having the best talent on board is only the beginning, as no project can be successful without competent execution and management. With that in mind, we rely on Scrum methodology to plan, track, and evaluate our work. Thanks to open communication, all people involved in the project always stay in the loop.
Ruby on Rails works like a charm in a variety of cutting-edge financial products. It’s used by Stripe, Square, Bloomberg and Indiegogo, among others. As an experienced Ruby on Rails development company, Code & Pepper has the skills and the know-how necessary to build innovative financial solutions.
Ruby on Rails app development with a Formula 1 growth speed
Smart Pension is a workplace pension platform that has evolved from an aspiring startup into one of the largest pension providers in the UK. Once their transformative solution proved a success, the demand for the product skyrocketed, also outside of their home market. As a consequence, the development team had to grow exponentially to keep up with the rapid business expansion.
Hiring skilled developers and maintaining code quality were the two major concerns. That’s what attracted Smart Pension to team augmentation with Code & Pepper.
Fast forward to today: dedicated teams of Ruby engineers work from two different offices set up by Code & Pepper and are fully synced with the headquarters. Agile project management ensures optimal product quality and open communication between the dispersed teams.
