Cultivating Sustainable Code Gardens

Code Confab is a collaborative partner helping you architect and build products that drive revenue.

We believe business goals come first, tools and processes second. We also believe that customers are more important than the technology. We believe that getting product-market fit before building a deep product or even a robust roadmap ensures that once built, the product will generate sustainable revenue.

We collaborate with you from product strategy to execution on the back end. Our work is strategic, focused on the architecture of the product or integration rather than being project management focused.

Application Development Services

Build vs Buy

Without a technical background it can be hard to tell when solving a problem with custom code will be an asset or a liability. With a quick phone call we can help you cut through the uncertainty to make a decision you won't end up regretting.


Rapid Prototyping

Test new product ideas or features without a big upfront investment. Each project starts with an Impact Mapping session to align the goals of the prototype with strategic business objectives. Our design-in-browser approach delivers prototypes with a path to production so that you don't need to throw away your successes.


Rails Rescue

For when things are on fire and you need help fast. Or you're buried in technical debt with no way out in sight. If your app keeps going down and customers are complaining you need a Rails Rescue.


DevOps Services


Operations oversight that puts cash back in your pocket. We've developed a three step process to find & eliminate your infrastructure waste. Each step is offered as a standalone service so that there is no need to make a big commitment until we're sure we can achieve big savings for you.

Long Term Rails Support

If you've hired an agency to build your app eventually you'll eventually need to hand the project off to more cost effective long term caretakers. Depending on your business and application it may not make sense to hire your own team. We can keep things running smoothly while you focus on growing your business.
