learning rails

Ruby on Rails or Rails, is a server side web application framework written in Ruby. Ruby on Rails' emergence in 2005 greatly influenced web app development and some of the biggest brands use it: AirBnB, GitHub, Bloomberg, Shopify, Crunchbase and Dribble. Over the past two decades, RoR has taken countless companies to millions of users and billions in market valuations.

What happens when your user study throws you a curve ball?

By Ildikó Tuck,

We’ve recently run usability studies on an application for a financial product where, after a user inputs a couple of screens worth of data, a tailored product solution appears. We had a nice prototype, and all was well except for one thing…

During the usability study, we received the following feedback: the recommendation arrived too fast. Wait, what? Yes, the results arrived too quickly after the user hit send, which made people think that it wasn’t real. Some of the user feedback was “there’s no way it could’ve looked at my data in such short amount of time…”, “I don’t think this is real, because it hasn’t spent any time thinking about it…”, “I wouldn’t trust this product, it made me fill in screens of data but then ignored it all when giving me the recommendation…”, or, in some cases, people were expecting to continue filling in more data and didn’t entirely believe that the screen they were looking at was the solution and not just another screen requiring more information.

2019 Agile development learning

A few months ago I published my thoughts on how to improve development time when working on inherited code bases. As a digital agency, it's not uncommon for us to do bug fixes and improvements on client's existing projects.

My previous post was focused on developers. In this article, I'll look at the other side of the coin—how can a client help to improve the development time of their application? Because at the end of the day, we at reinteractive and our clients want the same thing: achieving a quality product delivered on time within the budget.

Understanding technical debt in software and why you should reduce it

2019 development learning technical debt

First of all, you might ask yourself, what is technical debt and why is reducing it important?

Technical debt is a concept in software development that reflects the implied cost of additional rework caused by choosing a limited, often easy solution over a more durable and complex approach that would take longer or have higher costs.
