How We Work

We're not big fans of heavy development methods where the customer is forced to come up with a list of requirements and then the developer hides in a box for six months, emerging to deliver software that ends up being irrelevant. Our preference is to work with customers who will stay involved throughout the process, so that we can deliver value quickly and jointly home in on the desired functionality.

We have many years of experience working remotely with distributed teams, in both development and program management roles. If you already have a system set up for tracking features you want in your software, chances are we've used it. If not, we can help you get up and running quickly with a variety of easy-to-use tools that will help you communicate your needs and desires.

Our priority is making sure that our customers get what they need, and that you have a continuing chance to evaluate costs, priorities, and results. We won't mislead you about how long something will take, or commit to features that we can't deliver.

Why We Use Rails

At Lark Group, we switched to developing web sites using Rails in 2006. It's a decision that we (and our customers) have never regretted. Working with Rails offers substantial benefits:

  • Rails makes it possible to deliver dynamic web sites quickly, minimizing your investment in paying consultants
  • Rails is under active development (and we're working directly with the development team), meaning that it keeps up with the latest ideas and standards
  • With Rails, all of your software is open source, meaning you only pay for development and hosting. This can save you thousands of dollars in licensing fees
These are Lark Group's rails development design examples
