We are delighted with the result, which has transposed into increased online sales and positive feedback from our customers. We look forward to continuing to work with reInteractive on future developments and enhancements to ensure that we stay ahead of the game.Zlata Relin
If you are not completely happy with the result when we are done, we will give you $10,000 worth of our development time, at no charge, to make it right.
The Development Hub is our monthly free gathering where you can work on whatever Ruby on Rails problem you like. Get help to debug that annoying bit of code or just come and hack, all are welcome!
This is a free event where you can pull up a chair and code to your heart's content. If you get stuck, you're surrounded by other Rubyists and can ask them a question.
In all large software projects there are multiple people involved: programmers, user experience experts, front-end designers and project managers (aka software developers). All these people play an important part in bringing a successful product from concept to launch.
All of these team members are important, but there is one member of the team that is essential for success, a role that is important to not overlook. That is the role of product owner.
Visual hierarchy is a description of the organisation of graphics and text on a page that assist the audience in digesting content. Understanding what this is, and why it’s necessary, is key to creating designs that communicate effectively. This is most especially true today on the web, with the literal seconds we have to capture attention, communicating effectively is more important than ever.
Human brains are funny things, we tend to create links between everything we see. Size, shape, and colour, similarities and differences, contrast and harmony, our brains process these things automatically, and can do so without us even knowing. It’s these relationships that allow those versed in the language of visual communication to manipulate the reader’s attention and draw them into the right paths for content. Sounds devious? As always, with great power, comes great responsibility!
I recently had to set up a MS SQL database on my Mac for a client project, if you ever have to do this here is a mini tutorial.
In this post I am using VMWare Fusion for virtualisation, but you could use something else and the instructions should be mostly portable.
If you have a web application of modest complexity, sometimes you will want your app to perform a potentially long running or unreliable task initiated by your users. At the same time, you want your web application to always respond quickly and reliably to requests from your user's web browser. What is the solution?
A good technique to ensure quick and reliable responses from your web application is to identify any potentially long running or unreliable actions and to queue them up for processing by a background worker like SideKiq. This is also known as processing asynchronously.
Here at reinteractive we have a lot of experience building apps from the ground up. We’ve worked with many clients, big and small and have built up a wide range of knowledge over the years. Now, we’re sharing this with you!
In our next webinar, we’ll show you how to:
- Cut down scope to a bare minimum
- Identify your key feature set
- Determine who your users are
- Determine the problems you are trying to solve
