Ruby is a dynamic, reflective, general-purpose object-oriented programming language. Ruby syntax are inspired by Perl with Smalltalk-like features. Rails is a web framework built on Ruby, hence the name Ruby on Rails. Ruby on Rails framework enables the programmer to easily create advanced database-driven websites, Which follow the” convention over configuration” rule, which means that if you stick to a certain set of conventions, a lot of features will work right with very little code.
Why Chose RoR?
Take a look of rich features of RoR
1. "Cost effective" : Ruby on Rails is a free tool for development, which runs on a free operating system and framework works with multiple databases and web servers .In the past, we had to pay not only for the operating system e.g. Microsoft Windows to host it, but for the databases e.g. Microsoft SQL Server which store that data as well. By using this cost-free platform, we're able to significantly reduce costs without sacrificing anything like speed, security or performance.
2. "Fast Development" : Ruby on Rails is a rapid application development tool which allows us to model out website features quickly. We can go from modeling and estimating to actual development very rapidly. This helps us on larger projects where we have a discovery phase that requires us to figure out how easy or hard a new feature or functionality is to implement.
3. "MVC Structured Way" : Essentially, the way Ruby on Rails was created, there is a consistency in the structure and methodology when writing code. The Model-View-Controller architecture that RoR uses makes it a lot easier to manage the code between developers.When passing off code from one developer to another involves a much shorter learning curve.
4. "Collaboration" : The Ruby development community is extremely active and responsive. People are constantly developing code for talking with other APIs; as such, our developers have a much larger and more diverse toolkit to lean on.
5. "Future Requirements" : since websites are becoming much more dynamic and interactive from being static hubs of information and lots of the newer web services that have launched recently run Ruby on Rails Here's a list of some of the websites built in RoR that you're probably already aware of: 1. Groupon 2. Twitter 3. Scribd 4. YellowPages 5. Basecamp 6. SlideShare 7. GitHub Over the past few years, we've designed, developed, and launched several websites , and it's been a great success for both our company, and the clients we serve. If you're interested in learning more to see examples of websites we've done in the past, and we'd be happy to give you a demo of our work.
