Why Ruby

Web development

Ruby on Rails

Are you thinking about using Ruby on Rails to build your next digital product? Great, you’ve come to the right place. We consider ourselves one of the leading Ruby on Rails agencies in the UK, using it extensively across many of our projects since 2001.

Agility, speed and standards

We love Ruby on Rails, not only because it’s an open source framework—meaning that it’s progressively enhanced by thousands of developers all over the world—but also because it’s the perfect language for us to produce database-driven web applications.

We won’t get too technical, but the Model-View-Controller (or MVC) architecture divides the layers of the framework in a way that improves maintainability and better facilitates testing. And as a full-stack framework, it covers front and back-end design.

What does Ruby mean for you?

This simple and object-oriented nature of Ruby on Rails means that it minimises development time by 25-50% compared to other popular languages. For you, this means that you’ll be able to get your hands on an MVP (minimum viable product) far sooner.

For us, it perfectly complements the way we partner with our clients. We already work to a design sprint methodology, and Ruby on Rails plays a part in helping us to rapidly prototype living, breathing products – in days, not weeks. Put simply, Ruby is perfect for production sprints whilst maintaining quality.

"Rapid prototyping is essential at Kyan, and Rails is an excellent tool for quickly realising complex ideas, while retaining a proven track-record in production."
