Software Development

Lone Star Internet, Inc. develops web applications utilizing the Ruby on Rails framework. This framework provides a consistent approach to building web applications and focuses on convention, allowing developers to more easily build web software that is organized, efficient, and precisely-engineered. Rails features an integrated test suite, allowing us to create unit and functional tests as we develop the site infrastructure. Tests not only ensure everything still works as new features are added, but also act as documentation of the intent and use of an application. Ruby is a mature and powerful programming language used by businesses small and large; and the Rails web application framework, currently at version 3.2, powers enterprise sites all over the web and is integral to sites such as Twitter, Basecamp, Hulu, YellowPages, and more. The Ruby language and the Rails framework are open-source and well-supported. Other technologies typically utilized include:

  • Both relational databases, such as MySQL, and document-driven datastores, like MongoDB
  • Resource-based and RESTful data organization, ensuring that your site will be performant, well-built, and flexible for new features today and into the future.
  • Enterprise-grade architecture and deployment , so that you can be confident knowing that your site is hosted in a secure and robust manner, providing excellent uptime and reliability.
  • Full administrative reporting features , as needed, including data exports, so that you can keep tabs on what your site is doing and how your users are using it.
