Launching Our New Website: A Fresh Look for Add Jam

Today marks a pivotal moment for us at Add Jam, your plug in tech team for building digital products. We're thrilled to announce the launch of our brand-new website—a project that not only showcases our expertise and projects but also reflects our commitment to innovation and constant improvement.

As specialists in digital product development, our work spans a variety of sectors, including healthcare, education, and mobility/sustainable travel. We deliver these projects using a range of technologies including Ruby on Rails, React, React Native, and native iOS and Android development, empowering us to create impactful digital solutions that drive change.

Our journey from a Rails app to a static site for our website isn't just a shift in technology—it's a strategic move aligned with our mission to deliver exceptional performance and user experience. Let me walk you through the what, why, and how of this transition.

Why We Made the Switch

Our previous website was powered by a Ruby on Rails application. While it served us well, we constantly strive to optimize our digital presence for our clients and visitors. Here's why we chose to move to a Gatsby static site:

  • Reduced Overhead for Hosting: one of the immediate benefits of transitioning to a Gatsby site is the reduction in hosting overhead. Static sites are simpler to serve over the web, reducing the complexity and cost associated with server management. This change aligns with our goal to invest more in innovation and less in operational costs.

  • Better Performance: Static sites are known for their blazing-fast performance. By generating static pages at build time, we've significantly improved load times, enhancing the user experience. This speed is crucial, not just for keeping our visitors engaged but also for SEO. Faster sites are ranked better by search engines, making our services more visible to potential clients.

  • Code Reuse Across TypeScript Components: Our team has been increasingly leaning towards TypeScript for its robustness and developer-friendly features. By moving to a Gatsby static site, we're now able to reuse TypeScript components across our projects. This consistency not only speeds up development but also ensures a uniform quality and behavior across our digital offerings.

What's New?

Aside from the technical benefits, our new website represents a fresh face for Add Jam. Here's what you can expect:

  • Showcasing Our Work: We've put a spotlight on our projects, particularly those in healthcare, education, and sustainable travel. Our portfolio is a testament to our ability to tackle complex problems and deliver solutions that matter.
  • Insights and Stories: Our blog is richer than ever. We share insights, stories, and lessons learned from our projects, providing a glimpse into the challenges and triumphs of digital product development.
  • A Peek Into Our Culture: Add Jam is more than just a company; it's a community of passionate developers, designers, and creators. Our new site gives you a peek into our culture, what drives us, and our vision for the future.

Looking Ahead

This website launch is just the beginning. We see it as a platform for continuous growth and interaction with our clients, partners, and the digital community. We're excited to keep sharing our journey, our work, and the impact we're making in the digital sphere.

Innovation is at the heart of everything we do at Add Jam. Whether it's exploring new technologies, diving into emerging markets, or refining our processes, we're on a mission to create digital products that leave a lasting impact.

We invite you to explore our new website and see for yourself the passion and expertise we bring to our work. Let's drive digital transformation together, creating solutions that not only meet the current needs but pave the way for a more connected and sustainable future.
