1. Process

“After a year of extensive collaboration I have gained a rare sense of confidence and respect for Railwaymen. Their fundamental dedication to engineering principles is a common thread in all their communication. This professional rigor struct me repeatedly as they reworked our rough ideas into profoundly clear and minimalistic products. You know you have found the right team when months into a massive application you review completed work feeling incredulous at the turnaround. I'm confident that years from now, as the cost savings and other benefits accrue, our appreciation of Railwaymen will continue to grow.”

Talking in json

Our Team was responsible for supplying Matt with every data he needs to engineer the best user experience possible. From simple data presentation layers to complex business logic, dialog between Rails API and modern JS libraries always occur in JSON. Whenever our team finished the feature it was delivered through our Continous Integration pipe to Matt in the form of handy swagger docs living on top of staging API server.

2. Marketplace API

API docs done right

Swagger docs library is known as well grounded documentation standard for APIs. From the very beginning it was our go-to solution for getting Matt up to speed with request and response formats.

Karol, Senior RoR Developer:

"Matt was wonderful frontend partner to work with. We worked together for more than a year and thanks to Matt‘s wonderful communication skills never hit a wall with development. Matt was great both at telling us what he needs and suggesting solutions to problems. In order to always be on the same page we set up Continuous Integration process together with ChatOps so our slack bot would notify Matt few seconds after we push new feature to a staging server."

Talking in English

Having handy API docs is nice, but nothing can replace a good ol‘ phone call. We used appear.in service to quickly jump on the call and together with Matt talk trough tasks and come up with idea satisfying client requirements. Leaving the meeting with clearly defined solutions speeds up development a lot on both sides.
