Media app white-label migration
The client needed a subcontractor, who would update a Ruby on Rails media app from Ruby 2.1 / Rails 4.1.7 to the latest versions, without their client knowing it was done by a third-party.
Some might say, this is not the most exciting project to deliver. But rather than just a white-label migration, we took it as an undercover operation, that had to be invisible, and lethally precise.
We became code assassins.
Involving an uncommon programming language
We met with the client in the Netherlands to get to know each other and to meet the scope of work. We learned that besides Ruby on Rails, the project was partly dependant on Elastic Search and that it had to be delivered in 3 weeks.
We introduced them to Michael, a developer with both Ruby on Rails and Elastic Search experience. We then conducted all the necessary work, including updating the app to the latest Ruby on Rails versions, securing fraud risks, updating libraries and gems and fixing Elastic Search-based features.
Replacing the old app with success
Not all projects are about changing the world; some require us to do what needs to be done.
- We kept the app clean and up to date, protecting it from bugs or technological debt.
- We delivered the project in the name of the client within the set budget and deadline.
- Most importantly, the client of our client was utterly happy with the app and never learned it was made by someone else.
Because, what matters most in the end, is the satisfaction of the final customer, right?
Thank you Michael, for your involvement in the project, and the Retrosync’s crew, for a great time spent together!
