Re: [rubymeetup] Techcrunch Disrupt Fun

Hi Jeanine,

Thank you for being a Ruby connector. Maybe you can offer some advice or recommend someone? I am in the early stages of a peer to peer business, and have found an existing Ruby platform that seems like a perfect fit. The developer is moving on and willing to sell the code. I am looking for a Ruby developer that can QA the platform, with some tests and verify the functionality before the license transfer. Accomplishing this fist step would be great, although if there is  passion for continuing and building a niche peer to peer service that would be ideal. 

Do you know of someone local or can you reach out to your network with this opportunity?

Thank you,
Steven Poe
