Rails 3

Monday, January 16, 2012

Getsocio is built on Ruby on Rails software platform. This platform is very dynamic and evolves quite fast to keep pace with the modern web.

Over last few months our engineers were working behind the scenes on a significant upgrade: we updated Getsocio from "Rails 2" to "Rails 3". This week the work has been finished and now Getsocio platform is running on Rails 3.

What does it mean for our users?

While the upgrade from Rails 2 to Rails 3 does not bring any new features, it is crucial to keep Getsocio platform up-to-date, making sure it is future-proof and robust. Modern technology allows us to keep the code in a good shape, easy to maintain and extend.

We were a bit slow on new features over last few months due to the volume of effort the upgrade took us. But the hardest part is over now and the future is bright. In the upcoming months we will get back to adding new features, as outlined in our new year promise.
