Obie Fernandez’s HashRocket Builds Your Web App In 3 Days
Community celebrity, all round Rails good guy, and The Rails Way author Obie Fernandez writes in with news about his latest venture, HashRocket, a Rails-powered Web application development agency on steroids (or at least a lot of caffeine).
Their main "product" is 3-2-1 LAUNCH, a "get a site built in 3 days" affair, where you can get whatever idea it is you want to be developed sorted out by Obie and his crack team of 9 developers and various subcontractors in just three days. That's called cooking your Agile cake and eating it! The pricing model is fixed bid, in the range of approx $30k-$60k, but you're getting a lot for your money, since the team has many different resources to pull on, including stockpiled library code, Flash exports, visual design talent, and so forth. You'll also receive help with finding a qualified developer or team to take over the work once your week with HashRocket is up.
The second product is RESCUE MISSION, a service where HashRocket will fix badly-implemented Rails projects. If you're unhappy with your existing developers or you've dug yourself into a tangled knot of Rails obfuscation, HashRocket can swoop in and sort it out.
