Do you want to get hired to code in Ruby?
Maybe the thought of getting hired as a full-time Ruby developer makes you ecstatic, or even scares you a little. Either way, you might be wondering . . . how can I do that? Or even . . . what is Ruby?
Perhaps it's the simple syntax that gets them (Ruby looks a lot like regular words – no crazy parentheses or semicolons here). Or it could be the supportive community and the fact that Ruby is just plain fun to write. And I have a suspicion that people just LOVE IT when cute little foxes teach them to program.
As many of our Web Developer Blueprint students have discovered, it's easy to fall in love with the Ruby programming language. But they have one big question:
How can I get hired as a Ruby developer? How do I go from being smitten with Ruby to getting paid to code in Ruby all day long?
I'm here to help. As glorious and fun as Ruby is, you need more than just Ruby to get hired. Heard of a little thing called Rails?
If not, don't worry. I explain everything you need know to go from "I LOVE Ruby" to "I get paid to love Ruby" in this week's installment of SkillcrushTV.
So head on over to this week’s episode, where I break it down into the 3 steps you need to follow to get hired writing Ruby. Get ready to change your job title. ;)
