Ruby on Rails Professional Requirement

Two years experience seems a particularly difficult requirement since
Rails 1.0 was only released about 14 months ago.

Even those of us who were learning Rails before 1.0 might not have two
full years experience.

Do you take post-dated resumes ? :slight_smile:

LOL!!! :wink: But... I like it when companies make postings like that. Makes it real easy to sort out who might be worth working for.

Rails did have a long 0.x period. I started playing with Rails around
0.7, released in late 2004, and was employed as a Rails developer for
0.9.x, released January 2005. There was a bit of a community, even
then. Two years experience is about the maximum, but it's not exactly
unheard of.

Ditto. I started using it full time once I read the Rolling on Rails article at onlamp
http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/onlamp/2005/01/20/rails.html

Luckily I made the decision for which technologies I used :slight_smile:

That was January 2005
