Many years ago I attended an architecture conference with my father (an architect and college professor) and he told me something interesting. We were leaving after hearing a presentation on “ecological architecture” and its advantages over “ordinary” architecture, and because I saw my father visibly wincing throughout the lecture, I asked him what upset him so much. He told me that he didn’t understand this “all eco-everything” hype and back in his day something was either good or bad. That if you took all the important aspects into consideration and did things right, then it was just “good design.” Nothing less, nothing more. No fancy names for processes or frameworks. Just you, your knowledge, experience, and attitude.

Some time ago we mentioned on our blog that according to Clutch, Monterail was ranked as a market leader in Polish development companies, Ruby on Rails developers, and software companies in general. With more testimonials published on our profile, we’ve climbed even higher and managed to become #1 in Ruby on Rails category.
The journey to Buenos Aires wasn't an easy one – both figuratively and literally speaking. It was one of those times when you send a talk proposal only to forget about it two minutes later. When my talk proposal got accepted, I realized it would be extremely difficult for me to afford to get to Buenos Aires.
There has been a big fuss around React Native (RN) apps compliance with App Store review guidelines for a while now. The big question is: Is Apple supposed to ban React Native and remove apps built with it from its store? We dove deeper into the subject to find out what is going on. Here’s the essence of this debate.
Some days ago I coded a new feature for my project in work(ROM-rb with a sequel). At the beginning, the task seemed easy. After all, it was just another standard update of the entity without any significant corner cases.
