Re: [indyrb] Fwd: We have a RoR job opening [PGP Corp]

I've been using it since well before 1.0 release.  I was a very early adopter.  But the people worldwide who could qualify for 5+ years experience is probably only ~1K, maybe less, I'd guess.  So, basically ridiculous for a job requirement... I don't even qualify! :)  My wwr profile says I've only been using it 4 years and 8 months.


If someone does want a 5+ year Rails veteran they'll probably need to pay $250K+ salary I'd guess.  I wonder what DDH makes... :)

I swear I saw job postings seeking 5 years of RoR experience in 2007.

Not quite.  Rails was open sourced in 2004, and there were a lot
of people using it well before 1.0.

 
I built a production app on Rails 0.9!  (It was a pod-casting application for a radio station that ran in an iframe on their main site).  I think it was version 0.10 by the time it launched...
