Over the past decade, we have witnessed a number of breakthrough technologies emerge on the horizon. Ruby on Rails (RoR) is one such technology that has raised the bar for application development.

Internet has bridged the vast distances in global business. Many companies have realized the benefits of hiring offshore developers to achieve business success. Hiring in-house employees is a tough task that adds to the burden of corporate administration, internal communications, compliance with legal rules, government liaison etc. Therefore, it’s prudent for companies to exploit the potential of an offshore dedicated team instead of having in-house developers.
