Ruby on Rails Development

Development hero 2
Reliable Ruby on Rails development services for existing Rails apps

As one of the first development agencies to specialize in Ruby on Rails, we've had a first hand view of how much the framework has matured since we were founded 16 years ago.

These days, our team has narrowed our focus to optimizing, improving, and maintaining existing Ruby on Rails applications. Your business has invested in a Rails app. It’s our team’s job to make it work hard for your company.

An agency that focuses on existing Rails applications

There are hundreds of agencies out there with Rails developers on staff. What makes us different? For one, we don't shy away from existing code. For over a decade, we have inherited Rails applications built by other development agencies, freelance developers, and former in-house devs. Our team specializes in getting these projects back on track so you can meet your business goals.

A solid history using Ruby on Rails

In early 2005, our founder, Robby, started a blog called Robby on Rails, which was one of the most popular technical blogs in the Rails ecosystem for a number of years. Our agency has held a prominent place in the Rails world since. For over a decade, the Planet Argon team has contributed bug fixes and code improvements to the framework, written tutorials, spoken at conferences, surveyed the community, and sponsored projects and events. 

A proven process to support your project needs

Our experienced team of designers and developers offer collaborative support during each phase of the development cycle, from discovery to deployment and maintenance. Planet Argon is a reliable partner for both backlogged internal development teams and taking over projects from freelancers and other agencies. Contact us today to learn how we can help you achieve your project goals.

Christopher Conley, Co-Founder at 30elm

"Planet Argon understands building great applications is about more than programming. It also requires tireless brainstorming and spirited collaboration, both of which Planet Argon embraces with open arms."

Adrian Mowat, Head of Engineering at Newspaper Club

"Adding a new unknown partner into the mix for a Rails upgrade is a bit of a risk, and we were worried we might be writing a blank check for no return. However, we actually felt very much in control throughout the project...The project was done quickly and effectively."

Steve Suo, Managing Producer at Oregonian/OregonLive

"The Oregonian and Planet Argon really are in the business of understanding people's needs for information, and how to provide it and anticipating how people want to work with information. I think Planet Argon is very effective at that."
