Re: [ruby-83] Junior front end dev looking for an internship / entry level position

I have watched the discussion about the process of getting jobs, employees, and/or contractors.
While every User Group has the right to DECIDE and define the purpose and function of THEIR User Group, the question of buying and selling expertise is (from my experience) a typical subject (topic) that needs to be addressed by every user group.
Maybe this user group has already addressed this issue and I am not aware of that fact.
A lot of this recent discussion  “seems” to be centered around whether this groups policy is or is not to have (allow) the nasty side of commerce to intrude on our groups interest in and study of Ruby/Rails/et. al.
It would seem logical that some one or group should simply make this decision (establish the group’s policy) and define whatever procedures and systems are appropriate to implement (or not implement) that decision.
I see some value to have the third party “bird dogs” and business owners seeking help involved with any User Group’s operation.  If nothing else they are a source of potential money and support.  On the other hand, having functioned as a consultant (both employed and independent) for years (actually more like decades) I can understand how ANY user group needs to control the “body shopping” industry (and process) so that it doesn’t dominate the whole purpose of the group.
The angry comments (of frustration) on this blog to date are probably more a reflection of the lack of a clear policy (and/or an understanding of same).
The “nasty” process of trying to make a living (for users, suppliers, and facilitators) doesn’t have to be totally disruptive.  The process of life (for people and things) necessarily involves these little maintenance matters.
