I am beginning a conversion from our existing mid-range platform to a
Ruby on Rails web application. Over the course of the next four to
twelve months I desire an on-site Rails mentor for approximately 4 hours
a day, twice a week, at least to begin with. Rates of pay are
negotiable but I anticipate paying something in the $30-50.00 CAD / hr.
range. The location is in the east end of Hamilton near old Stoney
Creek on Barton Street East near Grays Road.
The target platform is CentOS-5 i86 based running PostgreSQL-8.2 as the
backend with Ruby-1.8.5 and Rails-1.2.4. Subversion-1.4.2 and
Trac-0.10.4 are used as the project management tools. We have selected
the Goldberg generator to provide the application “skin” and have
customized it to our requirements. Preliminary database design work is
done and the initial application structure has been settled. We plan to
employ an iterative development process as that has served us well in
the past. What I require is someone with experience in coding Rails
applications to assist and guide me in setting up page layouts,
producing input forms and output reports and such. I am somewhat
familiar with rails and ruby so this is not intended as a private
introductory tutorial (however it may turn out).
Anyone interested please contact me directly at byrnejb at harte-lyne
