Ruby on Rails is a great project and a growing niche. As it becomes even more popular, there will be increasing demand for experts in the field.
I am compiling a contact list of RoR experts who may be interested in opportunities under the right circumstances. I am not a recruiter - I'm a regular developer who sometimes gets asked for referrals when I'm not personally available.
If you'd like to be on my shortlist of go-to experts, please contact me off-list at: email@example.com
Please be prepared to show your expertise by any of the following: * Committer status or patches accepted * Commit access to another open source project which uses Rails * Bugs reported which were either resolved or are still open (real bugs) * Links to sites you have developed which are built on Rails * Articles / blog entries written about Rails concepts or development * Speaking engagements or user groups at which you've presented * Significant contributions to documentation * Other? (I'm sure I didn't think of everything)
I'll be happy to answer any questions, and I look forward to hearing from you!
