NYC on Rails Message Board › New RoR Developer Looking for Junior Position

New RoR Developer Looking for Junior Position

A former member
Post #: 1
Hi NYC on Rails!

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 No recruiters please. Thank you for your time!
