Cockatoo Software

Bosch Rexroth

From January 2010 until April 2011 Bosch Rexroth engaged Cockatoo Software’s owner Keith Pitty to assist with enhancing BeQIK2, an application that supports Engineering and Sales staff.


BeQIK2 is programmed in Ruby on Rails and Adobe Flex with data stored in a MySQL database. A critical aspect of the application is its integration with a legacy application.

Keith developed a range of enhancements in both the Rails and Flex parts of BeQIK2. Examples of his technical contributions included enabling Ruby 1.9 to connect to Active Directory and gradually improving the RSpec test suite.
