Tech Stack Highlights

Ruby on Rails – We use Ruby on Rails because of its maturity and large ecosystem. On the front-end we use jQuery and Bootstrap, and on the backend we use ActiveRecord and Sequel to access Postgres databases.

Sidekiq and Redis – for distributed job processing capabilities.

RSpec – While not dogmatic about test-first development in all cases, we are passionate about writing and maintaining thoughtful and robust test coverage in RSpec.

Heroku and AWS – Heroku hosts our applications, managed databases, and various services such as centralized logging and distributed batch job processing. Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides file storage and simple messaging capabilities.

Bamboo – We implement continuous integration and delivery (CI / CD) via Atlassian Bamboo, deploying to production environments multiple times per day.

Tech Stack Highlights

C++ – The majority of our codebase (Desktop & Embedded) is written in C++. This allows us to share code across platforms, and to be able to carefully control sensitive areas of code (performance and memory-wise).

Qt / QML – We use the Qt libraries throughout our code. This allows us to extend C++ with nice features for integrating various logic areas (signals / slots), as well as a tight integration with QML, which we use for our user interface code. QML is a great way to track state transitions, both on our embedded & desktop applications. Qt also makes cross-platform code easier to develop & maintain.

Yocto – Our printer runs a custom Linux distribution, which we build using the Yocto project. This system allows us to track our firmware builds & releases in a deterministic way.

Git – All of our source code is tracked in git, which provides all of our version control needs. It works nicely with Yocto to be able to exactly specify versions of firmware builds at the package level. It also allows for good collaboration between developers while preserving the cleanliness of shipping source code.

Tech Stack Highlights

React.js – We use both React and Vue for our front end work. We’ve been quite happy with React but are even happier with Vue for it’s flexibility and because it’s model is more familiar.

PostgreSQL – We use Postgres as our database. Postgres is most attractive for us do to it’s strict SQL compliance as well as for Postgis, which we will be using for some of our product. We’re also using the Postgres JSON functionality for some portions of our application which are not easily modeled using a relational database.

Python – Our backend is written entirely in Python, which we find to be highly productive and elegant. We use Django as our backend framework. We get a lot of value from the ORM as well as from Django REST framework – and from the Django admin.
