Ruby on Rails: The Radial Advantage

At Radial, we’re fanatical when it comes to Ruby and Ruby on Rails. As a development firm, we’ve emphasized RoR’s advantages for quite some time. Rails provides incredible tools that allow you to deliver more features in less time. In fact, using Rails is so clean and easy, it is Radial’s go-to choice for production and many of our projects.

The Ruby on Rails core team members constantly monitor the pulse of the industry. This allows them to understand what needs developers have when creating applications using Ruby on Rails and create new features and tools that are out-of-the-box-ready. As a result, Radial’s RoR team members have a strong, global, open-source framework and they build a durable foundation for their community to lean on.

Most major cities have Ruby on Rails communities, with regular meetups. Member developers are more closely aligned around the rules of responsible development. And they are passionate about quality code that is scalable, maintainable and standardized.

Agile

Radial implements Agile by emphasizing small, easily defined and delivered tasks.. We break large features into a series of discretely-defined tasks which can be built and delivered as a series of specific features.

Testable

When consulting with a client to build an application, Radial listens. As our team works we test to make certain their actions fit their purpose. Our code is not arbitrary. When we demonstrate how our code performs, clients are confident they received exactly what they wanted.

Test-driven development (TDD) and Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) processes produce the most accurate code. Before Radial delivers a product to a client, we test it to ensure it is the best version possible. By result, there is no question that it works precisely the way it should.

Core Principles

Software development is inherently difficult. At Radial, we do our best to remove as much of our clients’ risk from the process. Almost all software projects are fundamentally entrepreneurial in nature. We design the application of a process to help software entrepreneurs succeed. Radial believes in validated learning, well-designed metrics, continuous improvement, and relentless delivery of user-ready software.

Our Ruby on Rails work is intrinsically a feedback loop. We plan, deliver, and validate, forever.
