Welcome to the NYC developer community. It's a great place to combine an entrepreneurial spirit with solid technical know-how.

In your position, I wouldn't be settling for an internship/apprenticeship. Rails shops (including my day job) are crying blood to fill positions with competent developers.

Hey NYC.rb!

I am a (relatively new) self-taught programmer moving to NYC from Tampa, FL at the end of July. Tampa's awesome Ruby community inspired me to learn Ruby as my first language, and I'm excited to get involved with the New York City Ruby community.

I am graduating in a few weeks with a degree in business and entrepreneurship from the University of South Florida but found my passion, programming, while I was hiring a developer for one of my businesses.

I am looking for an internship/apprenticeship/junior programming position open in the area. If anyone has or knows of such a position, I would love to meet in June when I am in town for GoRuCo.

I am getting fairly proficient with Ruby, know the basics of JavaScript, HTML and CSS and am currently
working with Rails. I learn quickly and work hard. 

You can see where I am with my skills on GitHub, and I blog about my learning at Any feedback or advice is greatly appreciated!

I look forward to meeting some of you and getting involved with the New York City Ruby Community.
