GIANT ROBOTS SMASHING INTO OTHER GIANT ROBOTS

Written by thoughtbot

Happy Birthday, Ralph

Please join the celebration.

Today is the 4th anniversary of the incorporation of thoughtbot, inc. (We previously existed as an MA state partnership - which turned 7 years old in July). October also marks our 4th anniversary of working almost exclusively with ruby and rails as a web application platform.

We'd like to thank our current and past employees for their commitment to producing quality software in a productive environment. We created thoughtbot to make that environment a reality, and we love that it's still going strong.

We'd like to thank our current and past customers for hiring us - and give a special thanks to our earliest customers who had to make the case for an "unproven" technology within their organizations by choosing Rails as a platform.

We'd also like to thank the Ruby community, all the other great Rails-focused companies doing web app development, the Rails core team, Ruby conference organizers, all our training alumni – for making the ruby community such a fun and professional place to exist as a software developer.

We think our best work is yet to come, and look forward to the future with a sort of crazed, sinister-yet-loving robotic stare.
