YODA-LIKE RUBY ROCKSTAR NEEDED -- $75 bucks per session

Hey Everyone,

Seeking a ROCKSTAR rubyist to provide instruction, guidance & code
review for a smart, ambitious and eager student who wants to learn the

    experience with Ruby on Rails.
  • You’ll be teaching the student how to build a basic e-commerce
    related site (without spree) using Rails 3.2
  • She’s been working with Ruby for a couple weeks now but needs to
    expedite the process to meet a deadline.
    -She’s reading Rails Tutorial 3.2 (by mike hartl) & Agile Web
    Development 4th edition — but needs to add an expert to the mix to
    help with learning ruby and speed up learning core/basic recipes

Background of Pupil:

  • She’s has an Economics & Statistics background, with development
    experience using C++ (but is humble enough to know that this doesn’t
    really mean much …LOL)

  • Time frame is flexible (morning, early evening or afternoon is fine)
  • Each session will be ~ 90 minutes

Ruby on Rails Coverage

  • The student has identified specific areas she’d like to cover in
    each session (this will give the ROCKSTAR a little bit of time to
    prepare for each session)
  • Example topics include

    Building a simple store (which will allow consumers to select a
    product with unique variants i.e., specific color and or size)
    Messaging (email notifiers)
    Stripe gateway set-up etc.,
    Identification of the most useful gems, in-depth tutorial on MVC &
    using Active Record effectively

Pay

    is fairly close to BART/public transportation)

If this is something YOU might be interested in doing OR if you know
someone that’s qualified and would be interested in providing a little
yoda-like training to a newbie for pay

Don’t rockstars mostly turn up late and coked up to their
appointments?

Fred

Firstly I hope whoever takes this gig spends some time teaching you
not to double post and that ALL CAPS IS SHOUTING

Be honest here, your job is to develop an e-commerce site (without
spree) and you lied to get the work so you want someone to build it
for you at $50 per hour under the pretence of tuition.

I dont know what the contracting rate is around your parts but I
suspect that it will be higher and your dishonesty does not help.
There are plenty of work for hire sites out there where you can
contract people to do this, you would be better off looking there.

Anyone able to recommend a good site for contract developers for
Kisha, we only contract out the graphics work.

Not HACK ROCKSTARS – they’re the real deal:-)

Seriously, If you know anyone or know someone who may know someone, who
may
be interested – please pass on this bit.ly link Thanks!

Peter,

If you have nothing better to do with your time, please just don’t
respond.
This is NOT contract work. I’m a woman wants to learn, learn right and
learn quickly. And yes, I’ve thought of a simple e-commerce project that
i
can work on that’s based on the Agile Web D. book. And I have a
self-imposed deadline.

So stop with the weird statements about me being “dishonest” – someone
being dishonest would certainly not put there real name/email and send
it
to a huge google group (especially if they had paid work … that would
be
just silly). I’m a person that would rather INVEST into an exceptional
tutor than lolly-gag for months tooling around pretending be some hard
core
Ruby developer.

But, I get it you’re the “little bully” who likes to make fun of people
for
sh*its and giggles - and because you’re nestled & veiled behind some
computer you feel brave and emboldened to just be rude-- bravo for
you…you’re so COOL Peter… I mean, how cool are you dude??? :slight_smile:
Feel free to continue to pick on the little lady, that wants to
learn…did
i mention how COOL you are???

One of the hardest things in life is humble your self and ask for help
when
needed. I was actually a math tutor in college — do you know what
happens
when you make people pay you a respectable amount for your time to teach
them something useful??? They don’t waste your time — because time is
money. They’re organized, they don’t send thousands of emails to forums

they learn faster - they pinpoint their weaknesses to you so that you
can
help them faster…

The most respectable thing to do, when you really want to learn
something,
is to pay someone who actually knows how to do something really well to
teach you. I respect their time & expertise. Don’t judge me for doing
that
— Don’t judge me for wanting to invest into MY future and don’t call
me a
liar , when you’ve never met me.

If you’re not interested, then just be a gentleman and DON’T respond. As
there are HUNDREDS of people who use this very same forum to to ask
questions/help and aren’t offering to PAY for help in exchange.

Please don’t make this a back in forth thing Peter – this forum is for
people who want to help each other learn. The only difference is – I’ve
offered the best ones who in my neck of the woods, an opportunity to get
paid to teach me how to get to the next level.

The offer still stands for ANYONE who actually wants to help (not
berate
me).

AND THANKS for all the positive responses thus far – if anyone BESIDES
Peter, know great Rubist in the San Francisco area, who want to work
with a
fun, cool & eager to learn lady – please pass on this link at, as
tutoring sessions will have to be conducted in person ----

Have a great day.

I know you’re searching for a teacher (and you’ll pay for the classes),
but
have you seen this page?

http://www.railsmentors.org

Maybe it’s an option for you :slight_smile:

Again, thanks for for the help :slight_smile:
