Some very mighty ducks
Have you ever asked yourself how is it that a somewhat very simple website can cause so many headaches?
That's what it's all about
For the past 20 years, our company has been devoted 100% to website development. No logo design, no Google Ads or Facebook stuff, no business cards or anything of that sort.We have been doing nothing else than creating websites... lots and lots of websites.
Knowing that we were entirely focused on designing websites and thus, not at risk of stealing their clients, dozens of agencies and freelancers turned to us to outsource their web projects.
While trying to provide them and their clients with stellar service level and smooth processes year after year, we kept struggling with the same old set of recurring issues : communication problems, production delays and badly managed customer expectations.
We challenged ourselves to solve these problems (and many more) by developing new tools to allow marketing people to create and manage websites.
That's what RubberDuck is all about.
Built on solid ground
With RubberDuck, much like Apple with its legendary iPod, we're using the best technology available to solve real-world problems for agencies and freelancers and create a product that people will have more fun using. No wonder our branding is a toy!
Who are we?
Our very special team now includes about twenty video games addicts, sport enthusiasts, cruciverbists, cool mommies and embarrassing daddies. There are even a few who likes fantasy wrestling.
Otherwise they are graphic designers, frontend developers, backend programmers, and the rest are part of a whole customer support team obsessed with your success.
Our core value
We like to PLAY for fun
We love to PLAY with the limits
We prefer to PLAY in the big leagues
RubberDuck Grand Prix events
A RubberDuck Grand
Prix is a race in which 5,000 bath ducks are dropped from the top of a
bridge into a river, and pushed by the current towards the finish line located
a few hundred meters downstream.
Local businesses and citizens are sponsoring ducks in the hopes of winning the prizes handed out for the winners of the race.
Profits from each event are donated to a foundation that supports different causes in the region.
Where does the name RubberDuck come from?
Many programmers have had the experience of explaining a problem to someone else, possibly even to someone who knows nothing about programming, and then hitting upon the solution in the process of explaining the problem. In describing what the code is supposed to do and observing what it actually does, any incongruity between these two becomes apparent.
In software engineering, this is called rubberduck debugging (or rubberducking). It's a method of debugging code by articulating a problem in spoken.
The name is a reference to a story in the book The Pragmatic Programmer in which a programmer would carry around a rubber duck and debug their code by forcing themselves to explain it, line-by-line, to the duck.
