The Client's Challenge
MHG hired us to completely take over maintenance of their online magazine; Back of House in July of 2013. We inherited a Wordpress code base and were tasked with improving design and code health across the site. After a year of working with Wordpress, MHG was finally ready for us to take the site to the next level and move over to our specialty framework; Ruby on Rails.
So in September 2014 we launched a brand new Back of House, completely rebuilt and rethought from the ground up; in Ruby on Rails, of course. User experience was king in every decision, flawless responsiveness was a must, and page speed would prove to be a necessity. Since launching the site we have been focused on improving the functionality of the content management system to make the MHG digital team's lives easier and improving the application's health and speed as the site is getting great traffic numbers.
