I found this blog where Obie says the average Rails developer makes
“Most Rails developers worth their salt are contracting, simply
because it is very lucrative right now. Rates for premium Rails talent
is now in the neighborhood of $200/hour and continuing to climb.
Average Rails talent costs at least $100/hour.”
Is that really true ?
I couldn’t find a Rails jobs back in late 2006 - early 2007 so I
accepted a different position, but I love Rails. I’m a talented
developer and have done a bunch of Rails stuff, I’m not as strong in
computer science. I like to work flexible hours, have at least 5 weeks
of vacation and I’m not into working crazy hours, though I did do a
short Rails project at work and found myself getting up at 6:00 AM to
write code, something I never would do if it was PHP. If someone is
interested in talking to me, drop me a line. I have been doing PHP and
similar as of late.
