I’m a newbie developer that’s been working with Joomla + PHP till now,
I’ve decided some weeks ago to start with serious development and
specifically Ruby & Rails. For the history I was searching which
language/framework to go with and I was between Python/Django and
Ruby/Rails so I’ve decided Ruby. I’m currently reading the Cooper’s
for Beginners” and then I’m planning to move onto “Agile Development
Rails” and dive into Rails. Thing is, I’m currently very passionate
Ruby and web technologies generally and I can’t wait to start developing
with Rails, plus I think I’m learning fast and I also have a nice idea
mind for a site I want to develop (might as well be called a “startup”).
I would like to know however, from the experienced developers here, what
are the job opportunities worldwide for Rails developers at the current
time? I’m listening a lot that the Rails market is hot right now. Does
mean that if you’re a new yet decent Rails developer (always evolving),
can still find nice jobs worldwide?
What does it take to be “employable” Rails developers? What are the most
companies asking for? What if you’re decent developer with experience
but have no relevant University-College studies/certificates?
