A message from our CEO - Justin Gordon
At ShakaCode, we build custom web and mobile apps, specializing in the use of React or React-Native on the front end and Ruby on Rails on the back end. We both build new apps, and we help our clients migrate from aging jQuery and Angular UI’s to fresh React-based UI’s.
While our typical clients are VC-backed startups, like Everwise, we also do work for independent, smaller companies, like egghead.io, as well as established, larger companies, like Autodesk and Apartment Showcase (part of the Washington Post). Our clients hire a software development agency because they do not want to hire full-time staff or because they want expertise to accelerate their staff.
“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!”
