Our timeline

Our product Rails LTS version is now able to be used with Ruby 2.3. This means a large performance increase for Rails 2.
Together with Ruby Berlin e.V. we're organizing Ruby on Ice 2018. Ruby on Ice is the first and only Ruby conference in southern Germany and the Austria and Switzerland region. We're sponsors of the conference as well.
We're taking over hosting for the career portal KAP.WWU of the University of Münster. As usual, we're hosting on a redundant high-availability cluster. KAP.WWU is powered by Elasticsearch, Ruby, Rails, and uses the Single Sign On capabilities of the University of Münster. Rails LTS ensures security for the Rails framework.
Further development on a backend API that is used in a mobile app for the real estate sector. We're using Ruby, Swagger, PostgreSQL and more. It runs on Amazon EC2 and other AWS services.
Development kick-off: We're re-launching a complex newsroom for a DAX corporation that will have a scalable newsletter, uses Elastic and SSO. For preparation we've passed a security audit (VDA ISA 3.0) and have completed an open source license check.
Launch of "Verkehrswacht-App" which is used to request, plan, budget, and bill grant funds for the Deutschen Verkehrswacht e.V. in Berlin. Over 600 local units all over Germany, 16 units acting for the federal provinces as well as the headquarter of the Verkehrswacht are going to work with the Ruby on Rails based system we built. We've handed over the application on time and on budget and have completed training for the employees in Berlin.
