I'll post to the list too..but I'm definitely open to collaborating.  I got a couple projects in my github that I would happy to pair with.  Is there a good coworking place/coffee/tech shop that would allow us to work all day uninterrupted?

Hi Chris--I saw your post and I would be happy to pair program with you.  Bear in mind, I'm rather new to ruby on rails, but do have previous programming experience, deploying iOS apps, so I'm not a total noob.  I'm adept at command line, and have done all the major Rails tutorials online but have yet to have any serious 'pair programming' experience, and could use the 'real' experience with live code.  In regard to comp--To be frank--I'm looking to grow my experience level mainly vs. the actual pay that I would recieve, as i've been fortunate to make good money in past jobs.  if you are ok with that...I would love to take a step forward and learn and pair with you!

Hi folks,

I have just begun taking independent consulting jobs as a Ruby on Rails developer, leaving my company career gladly behind me.

What do I miss about my regular job? Pair programming! So I thought I'd ask around to see if someone else might enjoy working together on site (my place, your place, a coffee shop) on a regular schedule for projects I've been drumming up. I have one large project I am working on currently, and would like to suggest to our customer that pair programming would be a great way to go as we proceed.

Pay structure is open to discussion, but would be commensurate with experience -- meaning that I'd be very open to pairing with a talented entry-level Rubyist, or partnering with someone that puts my skills into serious perspective. : ) More than surface-level knowledge of some part of the web stack would be good.

I would generally prefer to keep an early schedule, i.e. start at 8:30 or 9 a.m. and finish early, since my evenings are fairly busy.

Drop me a note if this sounds interesting!
