The benefits of an expert review of your application

By Glen Crawford,

2020 development RubyonRails

Having just finished three App Reviews of Ruby on Rails apps for clients, I thought I would share the benefits of getting your code reviewed by a developer as part of a standard risk management plan. Reviewing your applications for potential risks carries the same level of importance as assessing for other business risks such as fire, flood and theft. You have likely invested heavily in a custom application, and when it is vitally important to your business operations, it is essential that you identify and are actively mitigating any risks. That way your software investment stays in great shape, bringing in returns for years to come.

We treat every app we review as the most important app we have ever dealt with:

Why Rails Upgrades as a Service?

By Gavin Terpstra,

It is essential to keep your app up to date with all the latest releases. It is one of those “must be dones” if you want your software investment to keep on bringing in returns. You want it in good shape for a long time to come.

But, developers typically dislike the necessary upgrade task that comes with keeping their framework up to date. Knowing this, we have taken the pain out of upgrading by offering a service that does it for you.

The benefits of code reviews

2020 Code Review RubyonRails

At reinteractive, all code changes are reviewed by one or more developers before being released. This is done for every single line of code written. While there is the obvious benefit of having more eyeballs on that piece of code to ensure less bugs slip through the cracks, there are other benefits too!

When you know your teammates will be looking through your code, it helps ensure you are focused on writing clear and concise code. Even if tiny errors in code or patterns slip through the cracks, your teammates can help you catch them before they get deployed and tested, thus helping reduce the number of bugs as well as making sure the code quality remains high. One way you can make it easier for your team to spot edge cases where you have to deviate, is to add comments to highlight why you deviated. It also helps to mention this in the description when making a pull request. That way your teammates don't have to verify if you’ve done the deviation on purpose or if it was a mistake.

Patching Rails Database Schema Dumps to Support Multiple PostgreSQL Schemas

By Glen Crawford,

2020 development Heroku rails RubyonRails Salesforce

If you have a Ruby on Rails application running with a PostgreSQL database, then you may be aware that both tools support the usage of ActiveRecord models being backed by database tables stored in different schemas. This isn't the most common thing to do, but it can sometimes be useful to namespace your database tables within different schemas to keep them separate.

For example, at reinteractive on storeConnect®, we have tables that are synced from Salesforce via Heroku Connect. These tables are stored in the salesforce schema, and other tables that are specific to the local Rails application, such as shopping carts, are stored in the store_connect schema.
