I saw your posting to the rubyonrails Googlegroups mailing list. I'd
like to speak to you about this opportunity. Thank you.

Hi Sandeep.

Gary Ferguson here based in San Diego, CA. I received your email and was interested in if your client would be interested in a Rock Star team to perform on this contract.

I have set up a team consisting of 3 Rails developers plus an HTML/CSS/Frontend developer who specialize in rebuilding and maintaining Ruby on Rails projects and offer 24 hours service.

We have people in San Diego, USA and Noida, India as well as Europe.

Please see this link for an article I wrote about the perils of hiring a Rock Star developer instead of a team.

Our monthly fee is $4000.00 for a full time developer and solutions architect (aka me) for this project.
