We're an international web development house, focused on high quality Ruby on Rails development for organisations of all sizes.

What makes us different? We pay attention to detail and never make promises we cannot keep. We deliver what you've asked for, on time, on budget and to world class standards. Don't take our word for it, ask our clients.


We're also committed to the open source software movement, because we know that open source works. We have been running our own successful open source project for over three years, and our community is thriving. Again, don't take our word for it, pop down to our forums and check us out for yourself.

The Hobo Project

UPDATE: The Hobo book, Rapid Rails with Hobo, has been downloaded more than 12,000 times!

The open source Hobo Project is an add-on framework for Ruby on Rails that makes it easier to build and maintain web applications. It was created by Tom Locke, co-founder and tech guru of Artisan Technology to reduce the time it takes to craft beautiful and functional interactive websites. The goal: write less code.


Since its launch three years ago, Hobo has gained thousands of users across the world (a recently released Hobo e-book has already been downloaded over 3000 times), and a thriving community of web developers dedicated to elegant, valuable code. The story doesn't end there...we are currently working on the next generation of sophisticated tools to make web development even easier, faster and more accessible. Watch this space!

Owen Dall, Chief Systems Architect

“Working with Artisan was a delight. ...they took the time to understand the problems I was trying to solve and delivered the solution I needed rather than merely building what I'd asked for. It's worth adding that they did so on time and on budget.”
