EPSON chooses Rails for developer site

Posted by admin

Jason Wong of ionami has announced that they’ve just launched epsondevelopers.com for EPSON on a Rails platform:

ionami has been working with EPSON for over 3 years. While we created the original EPSON Developers site in Java, they were surprisingly open to a switch. We sold them on maintainability, speed, and the lower overall cost. We took the opportunity to do a redesign, and move the original, public site to Rails for ease of management.

That’s great news! Landing EPSON with Rails development is definitely a great step in that elusive “corporate” direction. At the same time, ionami has announced they’re going to do all future developments using Ruby on Rails. They’re officially a “Rails Shop” now.
