We started Poll Everywhere as a Ruby on Rails application and are expanding it into a world of smaller, single-purpose applications powered by Ruby, Elixir, and Node.js. We built our own realtime streaming service that integrates with Rails,firehose.io. This framework ensures fast, responsive presentations for the millions of Poll Everywhere presenters using our software. The problems we’re solving are unique, and we’re sharing our knowledge with RailsConf talks about realtime web app best practices and how to decouple Rails from specialized front end applications.
At Poll Everywhere, we pride ourselves on transparency, and strive to build as much of our software as we can out in the open. Our engineers are passionate about creating reliable software, so water-cooler talk may involve Service Objects or GraphQL.
