Ruby on Rails Project
Headstand Media has embarked upon our first project being developed in Ruby on Rails. Our client is a global firm specializing in executive coaching and development with programs designed to foster efficiency, productivity, and professional goal achievement. Over the course of years, they have developed internal processes and procedures to help them manage the many executives they coach and provide services to.
Our task is to convert these disconnected and widespread procedures into a web based application that the staff can use on a daily basis to increase their management productivity and efficiency.
The first phase of the project was to gather deeper information about these processes and refine a functional flow chart that describes what the application needs to do. Our programmers spent time with the staff asking questions and interviewing them about the process. Additions, alterations and improvements were made along the way.
A development site has now been set up at Heroku, and rapid development is being aided by using the Twitter bootstrap graphics library.
We plan to share more insight and experiences on the Ruby on Rails development framework and platform as we complete the project.
