New RoR Developer Looking for Entry Level Position

From: Edmund
Sent on: Tuesday, November 13, 2012 10:33 AM
Hi NYC.rb!

I'm a new Ruby on Rails developer. I recently graduated from Syracuse University with two degrees, one in Economics and the other in TV/Film, and worked in commercial real estate for a year before focusing all my energy into my new passion, programming.

I recently finished General Assembly's four month full stack development course learning HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Ruby on Rails. Aside from class I have been investing all my time for the past 6 months teaching myself Python, reading Ruby and Rails books, going through Ruby on Rails online tutorials, and building my own personal projects such as Pholder, a social photo sharing website for friends to store photos in one place. All my past projects can be viewed on my Github. Please take a look and feel free to give me any suggestions on where I could improve!

I'm looking for a junior web developer position ideally in a company with a team, mentor, or senior developer to guide me in the right decision. I feel comfortable with Rails (along with HTML, CSS, and jQuery) especially after building an extensive project on my own, but I know there is still much more to learn. I am very eager for what's ahead and have complete faith in my ability to learn quickly and independently.

If you are interested, please email me at [address removed]. Thank you for your time!

Edmund Mai
