Hey there! We are Viktoras Agejevas and Tomas Varaneckas, partners and main problem solvers at AV Idea Foundry Ruby consultancy. We have been working together in various tech companies since the burst of dot com bubble. We have seen it all - startups, vast enterprises, banks, you name it.

Throughout our software engineering careers we had a chance to see technologies, paradigms and tools come and go, we have worked in diverse teams, big and small, we’ve developed, operated and scaled massive web applications, sophisticated B2B integration services and information systems.

Our passion for software engineering doesn’t end at work, we have contributed to open source, given talks, written blogs, articles and books. We have been learning new things and sharpening our skills every single day for last 15 years. We live and breathe technology!

Over last decade we have fallen in love with Ruby and it’s ecosystem, and it has remained our main focus. We believe that Ruby has a bright future ahead of it, we have fresh knowledge in building, deploying, running, automating, tuning, monitoring and troubleshooting Ruby on Rails web applications, and anything else that is written in Ruby programming language.
