Rails Upgrade Kickoff

Img discovery
Is your development team struggling to prioritize a Rails app upgrade? We can give you a strategy for success and guide you through the upgrade process.

Maintenance work like a Rails upgrade doesn't feel critical until the moment it really becomes critical. Upgrades don't result in noticeable deliverables for your users, but they're an important piece of a healthy app. Our Upgrade Kickoff service empowers your development team to produce a stable app, long-term.

If your developers saying things like:

  • "There’s a lot of security warnings brought up by bundler-audit that I can’t do anything about."
  • "I’d love to implement 'X', but we can’t get access to that piece of technology until we upgrade this gem."
  • "This feature is going to take a lot of time to implement workarounds for things available in newer versions of Rails."
...then we should talk. Schedule a quick call to learn more.

Schedule a 30-minute discussion about your project.


What you'll experience

Your team will learn about sustainable strategies for upgrading your Rails app, guided by our team of Rails developers. We believe that, long-term, your team can be responsible for the health of your application without outsourcing. We'll teach you how to work normal upgrades into your development workflow over time to set you up for success in the future.

How we help your developers

Even when teams have the skills to perform an upgrade themselves, they might not have the "bandwidth". This is usually due to an underlying need to adjust the long-term development process. Upgrades don't have to be a massive undertaking that happens every few years. They can be integrated into your ongoing app development. We'll show you how.

Who is this service not for?

This service is not for companies without their own development team. If you're looking to completely outsource your Rails app upgrade and maintenance, we have another process for that. Learn about our full-service Rails Upgrade. It's also not for companies who plan to end of life their Rails app in the next year or two, as upgrades are a time and money investment.
