Top Ten Best Clojure Development Companies
The Top Ten
I worked with Hashrocket in the summer of 2014. I was the developer for a company that had a pre-existing app that was getting crushed under its own weight. Our VP of Engineering reached out to Hashrocket to help rescue our main app, and to simultaneously train our developers in best practices. It was a pretty cool experience to work with this team in Chicago. In those 4 months, Hashrocket alleviated a lot of the pain points that we dealt with daily - especially dropping our test suite run time from 42 minutes to 3 minutes. They left us in a better position, and I'm currently talking with my current company about hiring them to go through a similar process.
