Our involvement

Nukomeet's role was to bulid a minimal viable product and to support the founders at the inception phase with the consulting. We were working in short, weekly cycles with the goal to have a deployable version to show. This way we wanted to reduce the friction and quickly respond to rapid changes as the project idea evolved.

One of the challanges was the amount of data to process and then to present it to the users in a understandable way. We architected the application from the get-go to be able to handle such challenge.

Technologies

We used Ruby on Rails and intearcting with Algolia.

Rails

Ruby on Rails is a web application framework using Ruby programming language. Rails is a MVC framework, providing default structures for a database, a web service, and web pages. It encourages and facilitates the use of web standards such as JSON or XML for data transfer, and HTML, CSS and JavaScript for display and user interfacing. In addition to MVC, Rails emphasizes the use of other well-known software engineering patterns and paradigms, including convention over configuration (CoC), don't repeat yourself (DRY), and the active record pattern.

Algolia
