Seeking Knowledgeable Rails Programmer Willing to Exchange G

Apologies in advance if this is inappropriate to post here.

I am an Web D. who primarily uses PHP. I’ve used Ruby for basic
scripting stuff, so I’m familiar with the syntax, and have done some
basic Rails Stuff (read that as, worked through part of pick-axe,
played around with some scaffolding stuff, subscribed to this list,

Anyway, I just picked up a cool freelance project that I’m looking for
some Rails guidance on. It’s a cool project and I have a hunch that it
would be slicker to do it in Rails then PHP or gasp ASP, what they’re
using now. It’s not E-commerce or Ajaxy, lots of CRUD components to a
simple CMS, with basic authentication and some forms.

It would be my first full blown Rails project, and I’m a little timid
to go it alone. So, I’m looking for a trustworthy teacher, who’d be
willing to help me (online, phone or in person) guide me.

I’m willing to pay for this obviously, hourly, in cash.

I’m not looking for somebody to do the work and me to get all of the
credit. I believe I can write most of the modules individually, but
want help architecting, and putting the whole thing together. I’m
genuinely eager to learn, if you’re willing to help.

I’m in New York, but you can be anywhere. Ideally we can talk first to
see if I’m way over my head trying to do this, then help me out getting
started on how all of the pieces get together.
E-mail me ([email protected]) if you are interesting/ willing to help
me out and I’ll provide more project details (All IA documents and
xhtml/ css work has been done)

In Executive Summary:

Admin Level

  • CRUD Viewable Content
  • Approve User Submissions

User Level

Thanks again, looking forward to getting a jumpstart (and doing many
more future projects in Rails)
