Your client base is growing, and the demand for business relevant features keeps your development team busier than ever. That team is under pressure to focus on the features and bug fixes which are in demand from existing clients, and required to continue to build that client base. It is inevitable that those features and bug fixes are prioritized at the expense of the general upkeep and maintenance of your application infrastructure.

The Inspection is a multi-point checkup of your Rails application. We’ll identify any potential security issues (including a summary of possible entry points), list which gems used in your app need updating (or replacing), provide a test coverage report, and an initial code quality evaluation.

There are more applications out there that were created, and then left completely alone. And then suddenly, new features are needed, and no one even knows the current status of the app, much less what it will take to add those new features. These apps need a good once over, and a quick polish before you can get back to work. With the Stabilizer, we include the full Rails Inspection PLUS
After your application has been Inspected and Stabilized, let us take on your monthly Rails app maintenance needs, ensuring that your app stays secure, and your gems are kept up-to-date. These updates will be thoroughly tested, then made available as pull-requests for your team to review before applying, or we can apply them for you. We will also branch and test on new Rails point version beta-tests, ensuring your application is ready to update as soon as a new GM release is available.
Unfortunately, neglecting your application frameworks, libraries, and toolsets comes at a cost. That cost is the slow build up of technical debt. Much like credit card debt, that technical debt continuously erodes your team’s ability to deliver on those priority features and bug fixes. As technical debt builds, so can developer frustration.

The dreaded Rails upgrade. Very few development teams ever enjoy this process. Why task your team with a major infrastructure upgrade when our experienced Rails team are familiar with the common upgrade pitfalls, and can perform that upgrade for you, faster and with fewer hiccups along the way? We can identify the potential upgrade issues, and bring your application up to date quickly and smoothly.
We will generally require an Inspection & Stabilization of your application before embarking on any major version upgrades. With the information compiled by those processes, we can provide an estimate with point-by-point details of the upgrade process and potential issues before we start.
After your application is upgraded, you can take advantage of our monthly Rails Renewal package to keep it up-to-date.
