Open source software has been critical in the development of the Inventables Marketplace. We have benefited from the work of others in the open source community by using tools that include Ruby, Rails, rSpec, Cucumber, and of course Linux and Apache.
We think it is important that our technical team has time to contribute back into the community by open sourcing software we write and sharing our knowledge about how we solved technical challenges that others may run into.
In the spirit of sharing, we launched Developmentables a blog by the development team at Inventables. On the blog we'll be sharing mostly topics relating to software engineering, web development, and user interface design.
