Looking for developer with experience in developing auction platform with Ruby on Rails


I'm new to the community and wanted to know if someone on the list might be able to makerecommendations on an open source project that allows you to conduct auctions of services? Ruby on Rails seems like it's a good platform to use for heavy transactional types of applications. Am I correct in my assumption?

Any input is most appreciated.

Many thanks, Steve Eisenberg Steve AT Steve Eisenberg dot com
