I am a female newbie mostly to the career web development sector. I am a 'complete' newbie to Ruby Rails. I have a couple of blog sites. And, a about.me web page that I constantly fine tuning. I do small web/Photoshop related projects for friends on occasion. I like working in WordPress and am still struggling on the learning curve for Drupal 7. I go to the tech MeetUps and learn alot about what I still have to learn.
It has been suggested to me, that I should get some familiarity with Ruby Rails, for server work. I want to check Rails out to determine 'if' I really need to add "another" programming language, as part of my efforts to have "well rounded" web skills set, before going after 'real' web developer job positions in the coming months.
Career changing to web development. I have a web authoring certificate. Currently, I participate in web tutorials to 're-fresh' myself with the basic developer codes. My 'ideal' future web job would be with an environmental issue/s NPO or NGO.
