Steve Talcott Smith (CEO): Leveraging his deep entrepreneurial background and development mastery to architect and oversee AELOGICA projects for successful execution


DevOps—the amalgamation of development (Dev) and operations (Ops) teams—is an organizational approach that enables faster development of applications and easier maintenance of existing deployments. By enabling organizations to create stronger bonds between Dev, Ops and other stakeholders in the company, DevOps promotes shorter, more controllable iterations through the adoption of best practices, automation and new tools. DevOps is not a technology per se, but it covers everything from the organisation to culture, processes and tooling.

There are many global providers who can develop a software application for you. There are few who can so ably interpret your vision, while guiding your process from initial concept to fully-launched success. AELOGICA is one such company that provides team augmentation for development, maintenance and support of large-scale, business-critical Ruby on Rails applications in the form of expert teams committed to success through long term engagements. AELOGICA also provides managed DevOps support for Rails applications through its AppExpress service, as well as web and mobile application development. The company sponsors – an online education program for skilled professional developers to teach the "soft skills"‚Äč of software development and technical leadership.

AELOGICA is headquartered in Reno, Nevada in the United States and maintains word-wide development facilities including Bonifacio Global City, Philippines. It’s here where the company is recognized as the nation’s premier employer of Ruby developers having attracted some of the top talent in a country widely preferred for outsourced development.
