We Have A Long Rails “Track” Record

(Get it?!) In early 2005, our founder, Robby, started a blog called Robby on Rails, one of the most popular technical blogs in the Rails ecosystem for several years. Since then, 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 for a Smooth Upgrade

Upgrades have been built into our Ruby on Rails development projects since the beginning. They're part of the regular maintenance we perform with our long-term partners. After dozens of upgrades, we've mastered what to look for, what to avoid, and how to ensure the update is smooth from start to finish.

Support & Maintenance

We won't hit deploy and leave you hanging. We look for long-term partnerships for a reason – we want every project we touch to make a significant business impact and stand the test of time. If you're looking for someone to check in and perform routine maintenance on your application, you're in the right place.

Digital Marketing Director at West Dermatology

While their approach to customer serivce and client relations is great, what I actually found most impressive was their ability to help develop solutions in creative ways. None of the complex content issues were a problem, and the team was always open to new information/new requirements regardless of where we were in the process.
