Really? You said it was 15 above.

Let me guess. You've already picked a company, but need to post an RfP
publicly, so you've made the description ridiculously specific. I'd be
surprised if there were more than one or two Rails consultancies that
meet all your requirements.

Best,

I guess programmers aren't part of the team. :wink:

No no, you've missed it...

Hmm, 15 developers.

Add in 1 QA person for every 3 developers, and that gets us to 20.

Add in an overbearing DBA to complain that the devs shouldn't be writing
migrations to muck with *his* database, and we're at 21.

A Doc person or two for maintaining requirements and documentation, and
we're at 23.

A 'Rawkstar' Development Project Team Lead who knows all the nuances of
Ruby, Rails, HTML, CSS, Javascript, PostgresSQL, Oracle and the origin
of the universe, and we're at 24.

All we need now is a pointy-haired boss to get to 25!

(yeah, I know this isn't helpful, and its all OT, but I'm running on 3
hours of sleep today so I'm a little punchy...)

Ar, but with the waterfall and all that they would not have

Unless the rockstar was also a magician and pulled it out of…

a hat

Starting off with 15 fulltime RoR dev’s is a waste of time, rails g all the way! j/k
