Maya,

 

I would agree with Corey. As a recruiter we are currently experiencing a higher than usual demand for ruby developers on the West coast especially over here in Victoria, BC. Of course if there are any ruby developers who want to work in NYC, please contact me, as the demand is so high there that jobs go un-filled for moths and comp is at a premium dollar.

 

Regards,

Maya,

 

I am a recruiter at Modis, an IT staffing agency in Vancouver. I can tell you that within the last 6-9 months we have been consistently recruiting on Ruby roles with a number of different clients and consider that skill set a very much in-demand skill set at the moment. In Vancouver we have been coming across a lot of candidates who are self-taught or their only experience is from Ruby boot camps. Having said that, I definitely think it would be beneficial for Ruby course offerings at BCIT or any other post-secondary institution with relevant degree programs.

Hi everyone,

 

I'm talking to BCIT at the moment about the possibility of adding a Ruby course to their curriculum, but they're telling me that there is no market demand for that.  I know from experience at my current company, where we hire Ruby developers, that the market is incredibly competitive for Ruby skills.  

 

So my question to the group is whether or not it would be useful to have a course available through an institution like BCIT?  For me, selfishly, it would provide us with a candidate pool that we could hire from so I think it's worth it.  But if you're a developer, would you take a BCIT course on Ruby if it was available?

 

Thanks for the feedback in advance!

 

Maya
