What do Ruby programming services include?
Suppose you’ve decided to use Ruby (or Ruby on Rails) for your latest project, congratulations! Successful companies like Hulu and AirBnB use Ruby on Rails. Many Ruby users say that they’ve chosen it to emphasise good user interface design and how easy it is for developers to understand.
To make the most out of Ruby as a programming language, you’ll need an experienced Ruby web developer. And when you book one through Airtasker, you can expect them to provide you with any or all of the following services:
Ruby is primarily used as a back-end language, so you might expect a Tasker to be quite knowledgeable when it comes to the “unseen” parts of your website. These include databases, libraries, and your web API.
A quick guide for those unfamiliar with back-end development: a database collects data stored on the local network (Internet) instead of your computer. A library is a part of the site that offers users a collection of different websites to visit. And an API (application program interface) is the software that lets two apps talk to each other. These are all quite specific to your project’s requirements, databases, and libraries. Web API development and customised APIs for your software are based on what your business needs.
Ruby can also play a big role when it comes to front-end web development. When you ask a Tasker to focus specifically on the front-end, they’ll look into creating the best possible user experience. Ideally, this will include a responsive design that fits the medium, whether the viewer is on a desktop computer, a tablet or a mobile phone.
For the best results, make sure the Tasker coordinates with whoever is working on the design and text - this can be you or a graphic designer and copywriter (both of which you can hire on our platform).
Full-stack web development
When you request a full-stack Ruby on Rails developer, you can expect both front- and back-end services. You could have a Tasker build a website, an app, an e-commerce platform, or an intranet for your company. They could set up web portals or web services. Typically, this service will include creating the layouts or designs for the website, testing and debugging the project, and deploying it.
Other tasks that a full-stack developer can usually do include: managing servers, developing databases, maintaining an app, and migrating your website to or from Ruby on Rails.
For those with existing Ruby-based websites, you may want to avail yourself of a Tasker’s code audit service. This means that they’ll review and analyse the code and look for opportunities to boost your website or app’s productivity.
