I'm a new, self-taught RoR developer. I come from a business background (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, BS Econ '09, MS Tech Management '10) doing sales, marketing, consulting, and some hustling.
I started learning RoR in July this year. My goal was to build a cool idea I had for a group photo sharing website. I learned entirely from online resources - two months later: www.1337pic.com
(Any advice/feedback would be awesome!)
I really enjoy programming, and I'm looking at my next steps to continue on my journey of becoming a better developer.
I am looking for a junior or entry level developer position in the NYC area - an opportunity to improve my programming skills and knowledge by working on bigger, more complex projects. Ideally, I'd like to work in a team with senior and junior developers and learn from each other's experiences. I am a quick and resourceful learner, and I like to tackle challenging new problems.
