Rails 5 Upgrade

Development hero 2
Is your app ready?

The upcoming launch of Rails 6 at the end of April means apps below Rails 5.2 will not receive security patches from the team building Rails. This can leave your application and, potentially, your customer’s information at risk in the event of a security threat. Is your application in need of an update to get up to speed? We can help.

Our team doesn’t shy away from older applications. Currently running on Rails 4? Rails 3? Rails 2? We’ll evaluate your path forward and provide a realistic path to an updated and secure application. Our trusted Ruby on Rails developers will chip away at errors and issues until your app is up to date.

Let's talk about your Rails app upgrade


We have experience with legacy code 

We work on a variety of applications ranging from over a decade old to new builds. We're familiar with each of the major versions of Rails, and we don't shy away from large, outdated applications. 

Low test coverage? Let's talk about it.

An out of the box Rails upgrade might not work if you don't have adequate test coverage on your application. We can evaluate your application with a thorough Rails Upgrade Audit to provide a map for your upgrade path. 

Focus on features, we'll handle the upgrade

It's difficult to juggle the new features your customers need with the technical upgrades that will benefit your application. We can work alongside your development team to handle technical debt and version upgrades, while you focus on your existing backlog of new features. Happy customers, happy developers. Win-win.

"After Planet Argon came in and really patched up our holes and redid our website, it eliminated so much of the manual work and the headaches that we experienced. Not only for our customers, but also on the operations end and shipping end. That just freed up so much time for Yusuke and me to be able to focus on growth, and product, and the vision."
