Hi all.

I'm a newbie developer that's been working with Joomla + PHP till now, but
I've decided some weeks ago to start with serious development and
specifically Ruby & Rails. For the history I was searching which
language/framework to go with and I was between Python/Django and
Ruby/Rails so I've decided Ruby. I'm currently reading the Cooper's "Ruby
for Beginners" and then I'm planning to move onto "Agile Development with
Rails" and dive into Rails. Thing is, I'm currently very passionate about
Ruby and web technologies generally and I can't wait to start developing
with Rails, plus I think I'm learning fast and I also have a nice idea in
mind for a site I want to develop (might as well be called a "startup").

I would like to know however, from the experienced developers here, what
are the job opportunities worldwide for Rails developers at the current
time? I'm listening a lot that the Rails market is hot right now. Does this
mean that if you're a new yet decent Rails developer (always evolving), you
can still find nice jobs worldwide?

What does it take to be "employable" Rails developers? What are the most
companies asking for? What if you're decent developer with experience etc,
but have no relevant University-College studies/certificates?

    Hello there!

    Rails is growing up very fast in the market

    To give you an idea, here in Brazil there are many opportunities for
    RoR web development, both in small and in multinational companies and
    some academic attempts too

    About "employable" Rails developer...

    This is very concerning...

    Depend's the region or companie...

    Experience is more needed than studies/certificates, but without these
    you will have to make a good advertising and have a presentable
    portfolio to convince companies that you really have a difference in
    your work

    The combination would be ideal

    Experience is good, especially comercial experience of Rails.

    If you've been doing Rails for 5 years but you are actually employed
    as a Java programmer you will probably lose to someone who has been
    employed as a Rails developer for 2 years.

    It's hard to sell enthusiasm over experience :(

    github.com
    find people on quora.com and stackoverflow.

    twitter isn't a bad place to start streaming tags.
    and i think it's always good to form relationships first
    then ask for a recommendation 2nd. people still hire people.

    i have a freelance opt if you're ever interested.
