We've been working on the next version of egghead.io. The site is built on Rails, and we still love Rails, but the next version is going to use the React on Rails gem built by Justin Gordon and his team at Shakacode. It's pretty amazing what this tool has been able to do for us. Fully integrated server-side rendering of React inside of a Rails app with React Router 4 and Redux. Life's complex, and apps are too!

GuavaPass decided React was where our team wanted to go, but spending the time, floundering around on our own simply would not be cost effective. Justin and Rob from ShakaCode were everything we needed to get our React game off the ground. From introductions on React, its paradigms, and integration points with Rails to academic discussions on JavaScript, the pair was able to provide us with a great learning experience. With ShakaCode's support, we shrank days of learning to hours and shipped to production in 30% less time.
