What can a freelance Ruby on Rails developer do for my business?

Looking into building a new web app? There’s a good chance you’ll need to use Ruby on Rails. It’s a development framework used to build web apps, and makes it easier to collaborate and maintain code.

Ruby on Rails is mainly used to create web apps, by combining Ruby with HTML, CSS and JavaScript. It’s been used to create some of the world’s biggest apps, like Twitter, Shopify, Groupon, and Airbnb. Here’s why.


1. It’s easy to learn (even if you’re non-technical)

It’s widely agreed that Rails is easier to learn than most languages, due to its English-like syntax and common language. The same way you don’t need to understand how an engine works to drive a car, knowing Ruby isn’t required to use Rails. But, drive that car long enough and you’ll learn a thing or two about its engine.

2. It’s faster to use

Ruby was built for speed. It includes a robust infrastructure, and by using conventions rather than configurations, Rails cuts down dev time by 25-50%, compared to other development languages. What this really means though, is you can ship your product sooner.

3. It’s built on the principles of good development

When Rails was built, it was clearly built with a purpose. It encourages you to organize your app around existing resources and standards, and endorses DRY (Don’t Repeat Yourself) to help you avoid re-writing the same code over and over again.

4. It’s free to use

Need we say more?

Well, we will anyway. Many conventional development languages have licensing costs, which can be difficult to manage for companies on a tight budget. And, Rails can also run on Linux, a free, open-source operating system, and it works with many free databases and web servers.

5. You get all the benefits of being in the ‘Rails club’

Ruby on Rails has a large community of developers who are not only willing to share their time and expertise, they’re happy to. They’ve created forums, websites and chatrooms to help each other resolve issues.

You’re in good company.

Thousands of projects have been completed by Crew’s award-winning design and development community for some of the world’s most respected companies.
