Topic: Rails noob, question on projects and job
I'm new to Rails. I have done some basic tutorials, and have made a list of topics that I'm learning currently. While I am happy with my learning, I know that its probably not enough to get me a Rails job.
1. Most jobs ask for prior Rails experience. I'd be building a couple of sites before I apply for any Rails jobs. Is that enough? What exactly do the recruiters look for, when they interview candidates?
2. Is there any place where I can get some kind of part-time/telecommute work (unpaid, of course) - my motivation is to learn and have a "real-time" project on my resume.
Would like to listen to your thoughts on this.
