The blueprint that has been developed leaves me with confidence to expand with new features, that will respect many of the lessons learned during wireframing and prototyping with Ildikó.Tim Koopman

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.
We appreciate that a lot of learning comes from experience so we like to give back and share our knowledge with Ruby on Rails Installfest and Development Hub, to help our community grow.Learn more
reInteractive's Rails Installfest initiative helping hundreds of developers get introduced to Ruby on Rails. We welcome people brand new to Rails get their first Rails blog online in one night!
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!
reinteractive is an organisation made up of individuals. We take pride in our team. Without them, we are just an empty shell.Meet our awesome team and tell us how we can help
Today I found an interesting edge case in using Sass or SCSS in Rails with the asset pipeline.
The manifest file in this Rails application was an
application.scssfile and was using
@importstatements instead of require statements.
Before every major new application is built reinteractive recommends getting prototypes built before development starts as we want to make sure what we build will be wanted by the people using the application. A prototype is a clickable wireframe that allows the user to experience the interactions of an application. Essentiality the user can walk through the application and experience the work flow without the input making any difference to the interaction. An example is here. We have found that every project that starts with a prototype has very good communication throughout the project as everyone can point to the prototype to discuss functionality. Good communication is the number one factor that leads to success in a software project. To put it another way building a prototype before a project helps a project be delivered on time and on budget as time is not wasted building features that are not wanted. reinteractive prototypes cost around one tenth of the price of development and are very easy to change. Changing an application once actual development has started can be both time consuming and costly.
There have been several projects recently that have changed dramatically during the course of a User Experience consultant's involvement.
While being recognized as powerful, compact, and expressive, Regular Expressions (or RegExps) also have a reputation for being notoriously hard for humans to parse. In fact, a great developer once said this about them:
In this series of posts, sanity is preserved as we review by example. We'll see how RegExps are particularly effective at finding patterns in text, along with some less well known tricks that can improve readability.
I have had the pleasure of talking to some very successful people over the past week. One has run over two hundred projects successfully in his capacity as a BA, and the other gives talks globally on the merits of the Agile philosophy. The Agile Manifesto is the definition of the tenets of the Agile philosophy and is stated simply at http://www.agilemanifesto.org/.
Here I speak of Agile only in the context of software development; at reinteractive we run all software projects using the Agile philosophy. It came as quite a surprise to hear from my BA friend that some Agile projects failed and were four times more costly than waterfall projects. The Agile spokesperson gave me a few pointers as to why some Agile projects don’t work out.
Great news! reinteractive is now offering Ruby on Rails upgrades as a specialised service.
This is good news for me because I love doing upgrades, and it is good news for you too because developers typically dislike the upgrade task. When I first put my hand up for this role, my manager's reaction was that of disbelief. His exact words were "Oh, you're actually serious? I thought someone was having a lend of me."
