Code Styleguides Code Styleguides

We try to follow the well known standards out there, but we give them an unique style. Our team codes in a consistent and similar way.

Design Patterns Design Patterns

Architectural design of the applications we work on is strongly influenced by design patterns. We always make time to stop and think the best possible design.

Our approach

After years of experience we were able to refine and polish the way we work. We know now that the client is our main character and we've built a process around him. The following series of steps is our recipe to success.

Understand

There is always time to sit down, analyze and understand the situation, no matter the deadlines. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Design

Once we know everything about what needs to be done, we use all of our expertise and creativity to come up with the best possible solution.

Validate

We need to make sure we fail fast. Therefore we validate all of our ideas with our clients before starting to work on them. Communication is key.

Code

This is where the magic happens. Previous input, code styleguides, design patterns and our love for maintainability merge into a real application.

Review

A second pair of eyes always adds great value. Find bugs earlier, propose enhancements, or even learn from the code, are only few of the benefits of reviews.

Integrate

We define small chunks of features to develop and then continuously integrate to the existing application. We like it to grow organically.

Our approach

The Client

This whole process is designed to work closely with our clients. We strongly think they need to be involved in every step, so we can then exceed their expectations.

About us

We were able to build a group of great professionals, who with their different sets of skills, add up to a uniquely balanced and robust team. Quality is our main pilar, and it's something we keep in mind at all times.

Clients say

When we started our journey to reinvent our applications with Ruby on Rails, we were looking for a company that could augment our expertise and accelerate our efforts.
With Paragon Labs, we found a partner that is highly skilled and passionate about the quality, performance and timeliness of our solutions. In addition to implementation and delivery of solutions, they have provided consultation and best practices not only for Rails but for our micro services architecture and our DevOps development/deployment pipeline. One of the main factors for their success is their ability to constantly collaborate with our projects teams seamlessly through the use of Skype, Slack and Beam robots.
Because of the shared values of innovation, agility and excellence they have demonstrated, we have designated them as one of our strategic partners and consider them a part of our teams where they participate in our company hackathons and agile competitions.

Braulio has integrated himself fully as part of our team, despite being 'just' a contractor. He cares about our product, our processes and our people. We'd happily recommend him for another project.
