We ♥ web applications!
At mobalean we love to build innovative web services for Japan and the world. Our experience will help transform your ideas into successful online services.
Mobalean is lead by Henri Servomaa, the original founder and mobile developer. At Mobalean we strive to develop services which are loved by our clients and users. By working in an agile manner, quickly adapting to changing requirements, we can deliver quickly and often.
Hailing from Finland, Henri has a long history with computers and the internet. With a background in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, he has worked in Japan as Software Developer and System Admin since 2001. In 2005, he joined a company to develop mobile sites for the Japanese market and has been involved in mobile ever since.
Cleve is a Canadian engineer. He came to Tokyo in 1994, and has lived here ever since. He has broad experience as a software developer, which includes development of mainframe software, Internet applications and mobile apps (Android and iOS). He is especially skilled at writing Java applications (vd. Simredo 4, Grafikilo 15). When not programming, Cleve enjoys improv acting and studying languages, such as Latin and Esperanto.
Our strength is crafting web services for both Japanese and international markets. We bring our technical and cultural experience to help you adapt your ideas into successful products.
We develop with Ruby on Rails and use the best agile practices and tools, such as test driven development and continuous integration to achieve quality.
We are the leading provider of technical expertise about the Japanese mobile web. Our Keitai Web Technology Guide is a great starting point for learning about the challenges of Japanese mobile development. Developers can find more technical details in our Ketai-Dev Wiki.

Last night I presented at Cookpad’s Tokyo Rails event. This installment had the largest turn out I’ve seen so far, with at least forty participants. I think word’s gotten out that Tokyo Rails has the best food of any Ruby group in the city (and great people too)! This time we had some great home cooked Korean food.
My presentation was about converting Rails plugins to gems. Fortuitously, there was an announcement last week that vendor/plugins will be deprecated, and gem plugins would become the standard way of building a Rails plugin. So the timing of my presentation worked out great.
Unfortunately, I don’t think my slides showed up so well on the projector. I’ve attached them below, so if anyone is interested, please have a look at them.
