Ruby on Rails is a modern web application framework writen in the Ruby programming language.
It follows reliable and efficient patterns (including MVC architecture or ORM mapping) and supports important rapid web development principles like CoC (Convention over Configuration) or DRY (Don't Repeat Yoursef).
Thanks to this great language and its architecture, RoR allows to exchange or extend almost every part of framework to gain better results in large and demanding projects.
Many well known and successful RoR based projects (i.e. Twitter, Groupon, Github or Yellow Pages) have proven the effectiveness of development (+scalability, maintainability) and have had influence on the framework’s popularity.
Due to the open-source nature of projects and the ability to support rapid application development, developers around the world are contributing new features constantly.
This adds new value to the excellent platform further making it a web framework of choice for companies and organizations worldwide.
Thanks to its GitHub centered community RoR became one of the most innovative and popular frameworks to date.

Web design is a term describing various tasks involved in creating the visual side of a web page.
This includes the information architecture, user interface, site structure, navigation, layout, colors, fonts and combines the work of graphic designers and front-end developers.
Client-side or front-end development requires widespread knowledge of web design technologies and patterns included in particular markup, style, usability and accessibility aspects.
Two fundamental and the most important technologies are:
- HyperText Markup Language (HTML) is a markup language used for displaying web pages in your browser.
- Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a styling language used for describing the look and formatting of a document written in a markup language.
Working together, these two languages visually produce the layout and look of any website you may visit.
Today these languages provide extensive and maintainable features that were unheard of several years ago.
SlashDuck is always on top of all the latest HTML5/CSS3 news and techniques making us friendly with the future of the web.
We are observing and following the newest trends to design amazing websites that speak effectively to your audience.
Having art skills and the newest styling features in mind, we are able to go beyond standard practices and prepare more detailed layout designs (i.e. with eye-catching animation effects or sophisticated typography).
Our talented graphic designers will draw sets of custom icons or corporate identity elements from scratch to fulfil the project requirements as well.
We believe that good design is not only beautiful graphics. It's also about the user experience, how easily one can navigate the website and how they feel when interacting with it.
Graphic design is a term that refers to a number of artistic disciplines focused on visual communication. The goal of graphic design is to combine words, symbols, illustration and typography to create a visual representation of ideas and messages. The visuals should be appealign and grab the attention of the viewer, however the core of the designing process is to present information in accessible and memorable ways.
Graphic design includes:
- Identity (logo and branding)
- Publications (newspapers, brochures, etc.)
- Advertisement (posters, banners, leaflets)
- ... and many other categories
From little things like business cards and t-shirts to huge billboards, graphic design is used to inform, persuade, stimulate, identify and simply provide joy.
Graphic design is a significant part of everyday life. We believe that good design is able to make life more beautiful and at the same time communicate the client’s message to their audience.
