[JOBS Feedback Needed] Looking for Ruby on Rails newcomers who used to program in other languages

Hi Folks,

I’ve been coding 7 years in C# Asp .Net/T-sql and recently transition to
RoR 8 months ago. It feels hard to break into the industry without
sufficient real-world work experience even though I’ve coded a site
pre-seed funded by an accelerator in Sydney and built an iPhone app in
Phonegap (with Javascript/HTML/CSS).

What has been your experience in transitioning? How do you find
non-senior
roles to pay the bills?

On this note, I always believe in solving problems creatively. I wonder
what do people think of a marketplace Website whereby programmers who
are
learning/transitioning to another language can be hired and paid at
junior
rate? Besides solving my own problem, I think I can help others in the
same
shoe solve theirs too.

Cheers,
Fai
