When fromAtoB approached Monterail, they were in the process of migrating their Ruby on Rails monolith application. One of the goals was to have a separate frontend application written in Vue.js. Such a migration is a complex task, and fromAtoB was struggling to find the right talent in Berlin, so Monterail stepped in to provide the needed expertise.
fromAtoB’s goal was to have someone come in quickly, gather the necessary knowledge, and start adding value through technical expertise. Seeing that Monterail did just that, and noticing the quality of our work, fromAtoB opted to incrementally expand the team, adding new development objectives.
Key challenges of the project included:
- Talent shortage in Berlin.
- Need to quickly onboard qualified experts that work in a similar time zone.
- Completing a complex migration on schedule.
