History

It isn’t very hard to imagine how we got started. Just picture three good programmers, back in 2011, who went to college together living in a city packed with software factories. (Almost) no one ever talked about “agile”, and we had a problem with that: full of ideas and opinions on how software should be made, we decided to create a different place, one where we’d actually want to work. That’s how “Guavaberry” started off, as a stronghold of quality software (later we heard “drop the berry” from a Napster dude).

From there on, it was all smooth sailing. We've started working with many clients worldwide and kept growing. Our team got bigger, acquiring a whole new set of special skills throughout the years. And we hope this is only the beginning.


Giving back

We believe in open source software, and that's one of the reasons we love Ruby.

We believe in open source software, and that's one of the reasons we love Ruby. In 2009, we founded Frevo on Rails, the Ruby User Group of Pernambuco, organizing more than 30 meetups since then. For three years in a row, we’ve organized, produced and designed Tropical Ruby, the second most important event about Ruby in Brazil and a major conference in Latin America. We also take part in Manguez.al, the local community of entrepreneurs, and sponsored initiatives like the Mangue.bit Conf and Rails Girls Recife.

Also, we love to go to conferences around the world (don't be shy and say hi if you see us somewhere).
