Building amazing applications is nice. We like to feel accomplished. But along with that, we like to help the community through open-source projects and regional events. We like to think we’re famous on the internets, but who’s to judge? You? Yes.
We love open-source software. Below is a list of projects we either created or to which we greatly contributed.
Database-based asynchronously priority queue system. We added additional data backends, enhanced the API, and release new gems on a regular basis.
The original Ruby API for interfacing with Campfire, the 37Signals chat application. Used and recommended by 37Signals themselves.
An ActiveRecord extension that logs all changes to your models in an audits table.
Awesome Nested Set
An awesome replacement for acts_as_nested_set and better_nested_set.
Microformats for Google Chrome
A Chrome extension to display microformats
We love excuses to hang out with other developers and talk shop. Here's a few of the regional events we participate in:
We're proud to present Finish Weekend, a concept similar to Startup Weekend, but for people who have an existing project that they want to finish. Why? Because starting is easy. Finishing is hard.
Great Lakes Ruby Bash
Great Lakes Ruby Bash is a regional Ruby conference featuring local talent and developers. Our latest bash was April 2010 and will be planning the next conference soon. If you'd like to get involved, let someone know on the mailing list.
