I’m currently working in the medical equipment research and development
industry and I’m looking to switch industries to become a Rails
developer. I’ve been focusing on getting to know Ruby for the past

time, but I would really like some advice on how to reach that end goal
of actually landing a job as a Rails developer (freelance work, where I
should be before I START looking for freelance jobs, developing a Rails
Seeing someone else’s Rails portfolio would be a huge help!
Thanks in advance!
