So someone posted previously that they were attempting to make a significant industry change into Ruby On Rails and I’m doing the same thing.
I realize one of the most important things in getting a job in ROR or Ruby is a portfolio demonstrating what you can do. I’m wondering if people have suggestions for some ‘small’ portfolio building type projects. I have many ideas but they are kind of huge engrossed projects that I still need to think out. I have one small opportunity as a co-worker has a photo upload site he has for mountain climbing that is pretty primitive (and allows me to work out my first ‘non hartl tutorial’ gem in Paperclip) but I was wondering if any other people had any portfolio ideas that were things you could build on your own without needing a client?
I have done numerous web searches on the idea in the past and never came up with any quality search results.
