The website allows users to post the names of businesses that are showing visible signs of celebrating the Christmas season, and these … Read More

Over the last year or so, we’ve used Ruby on Rails for development of our largest web applications here at Gatorworks. Ruby on Rails is one of the so-called “opinionated” web frameworks out there. By opinionated, I mean that it makes a lot of assumptions for you. It assumes that you’re building a web app, which means that your app will live in a browser, probably connect to a database, need to create, read, update and delete records, and that … Read More
