Top Ruby Developer related questions

Ruby is usually used as a back-end programming language, but a knowledgeable programmer is usually able to use it for front-end purposes. You’ll be glad to know that one of the reasons companies choose Ruby is that it usually results in a very good user interface and user experience. 

It depends. Some developers see Ruby as the better programming language because it is more object-oriented and more flexible. But Python is easier to learn - one can even master it in 3 months! Also, Python is faster than Ruby (when compiled down to object code or byte code on the computer). So it really would depend on what your project needs and the proficiency of available developers. 

Some developers consider it quite easy to learn and even similar to languages like Python and Perl. Of course, it depends on the individual learning it. If you want to learn Ruby, you could use Airtasker to find a Ruby developer to tutor you. No time to learn Ruby on Rails? You can easily find an experienced developer to create your dream website or app for you instead. 

Both JavaScript and Ruby are object-oriented, dynamic, general-purpose languages, but Ruby has the advantage of being better for CPU-heavy app development (e.g. websites with a lot of graphics). It’s also open-source and has a lot of online support. On the other hand, JavaScript is easier to debug, and it’s easier to develop apps using this language. It may also run 20x faster than Ruby in some cases. So, it depends on what you (and your project) need. 

Ruby on Rails is a full-stack programming language, so a good RoR developer should be experienced in front-end tasks like creating visual elements and a responsive design. Back-end skills include working with servers, databases and making a secure, stable website or web application. And, it goes without saying that a Ruby on Rails developer should be well-versed in the basics of object-oriented programming, such as objects, inheritance vs composition, and lambdas. 

It depends. Ruby can be used to create both web and mobile apps, but the knowledge and expertise in this area can vary from Tasker to Tasker. If the core of your project involves app development, it may be better to book an app developer through Airtasker instead.

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: 

Back-end development

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. 

Front-end development

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.  

Code audit 

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.
