Our team love to use Ruby on Rails as our web development framework of choice (where appropriate).Each of us has at least 13 years of experience coding in Ruby on Rails, and we’ve lost count of how many Rails applications we’ve worked on.We are likely Scotland’s most experienced Ruby on Rails development agency.
Since Rails is the tool we work in every day, we make sure we keep up to date with the latest developments in the Rails community.
As well as publishing our own gems for other Rails developers to use, we’ve also contributed to the Rails magazine, and have been featured in the Ruby Weekly newsletter.
We’ve submitted patches to the Rails codebase itself, meaning our code is being used by thousands of Rails applications accross the world right now.
We write automated tests for our code, providing an extra layer of assurance that things aren’t broken when future changes are made. This helps to lower your cost of ownership.
We’re happy to work on projects of almost any size, starting from 2 days to 6 months. Our day rates are competitive, and we deliver our code to a very high standard.
The guys at Katana rock! As an entrepreneur I look for partners that are special. Unlike most coders they really take the time to really understand the bigger business issues and objectives, and also understand and help design in flexibility so the solution can evolve. This roadmapping of the solution which mirrors the evolution of the business model is critical in a fast-moving, competitive environment and is unusual to find in a boutique software house.
They quickly understood what we wanted to achieve and planned all the required steps and processes to get there. Every detail was meticulously structured, thought out and documented. This was then conveyed to us in layman’s terms we could understand and quantify, making the whole process (slightly) less daunting.
I’ve worked with a number of dev shops, and KatanaCode has topped them all. One thing they do uniquely well is thinking about your product holistically: you give them a spec, and not only will they execute on it, but they’ll also act as a thought partners, and advise when aspects of your spec can be improved.
Katana helped us turn our crazy ideas into reality. They offered a very hands on and personal service from start to finish, and continue to do so long after our site was launched. They show great pride in their work and I love that - A real pleasure to work with!
The guys at Katana have completely redefined what I think of when I hear 'software developer'. They always take the time to discuss our business aims first, and then suggest technology solutions that will help us meet those aims. They've been an essential component in our fast-moving startup machine
We were happy with KatanaCode from start to end. They acted as a fantastic sparring partner both on the technical parts of the development process, but also challenged us on many of the business areas, adding their "tech" perspective on our processes, resulting in our product being more long term scalable than originally intended.
It is very refreshing to work with a company that is so organized and so responsive of its customers’ needs. They went over and beyond all our expectations, a real pleasure to work with. Thanks!! We are always very impressed with their work, always willing to address any question, problem or enquiry timely and very effectively.
The design, responsiveness, and internationalisation are great, and just in the nick of time for Qualia Analytics going public to Brazilian zoos! Thanks so much for the back up guys, you’ve been awesome to work with.
I have found Katana Code to be very responsive to our needs. They made a point to understand the user's requirements before working on the delivery, using techniques such as mock-ups and even hand drawings. They contributed to our design bringing advanced knowledge of what is happening in the mobile application field. They were able to work overtime in support of dead lines, and their deliverables were well documented. I highly recommend them.
