Ryan Doom and Kevin Southworth

Web Ascender co-founders Ryan Doom and Kevin Southworth have been programming for over 15 years, are Microsoft Certified Developers, and have degrees in Computer Science.  They continue to actively develop web and mobile applications and have worked with programming languages such as PHP, Java, ASP.NET, C#, Python, and others over the years.

Our co-founders and team members regularly evaluate existing and emerging technologies to determine how they might benefit our clients.  Although we still evaluate which technology is best on a case-by-case basis, we find that Ruby on Rails is the best choice more often than not.

What kinds of web applications can be created with Ruby on Rails?

In short, almost anything can be built using Ruby on Rails. Here are some examples of the types of applications we have created:

  • Project and time tracking
  • Data collection and analysis
  • Backend business automation
  • Surveys, questionnaires, checklists, and custom forms
  • Social networks and user collaboration tools
  • Secure document management and information exchange
  • HIPAA compliant applications
  • Apps that geolocate users and map locations
  • E-commerce, payment collection, and accounting apps
  • APIs and business backend systems for mobile application end-points
