Offering My Services

Published on Aug 29, 2019

I want to offer my services, but I'm not sure how to go about it.

I'm an experienced Rails developer with over 5 years of creating, managing and maintaining applications for several clients, from a needlework ecommerce site to accounting sofware and a DVLA vehicle querying service.

I recently enjoyed teaching some Rails development and would like to continue along that vein, which is why I'm interested in offering my services at all. After a few lessons with me, my "student" ended up getting over 90% on their Rails module at University. I didn't do their work, but I helped and advised. It was a great learning opportunity for myself too.

I'm interested in auditing existing Rails applications and offering general suggestions and improvements from a legibility, performance and maintainability perspective.

I'm also interested in teaching, but not in a curriculum sense. I'm interested in pairing with people who want to make their own applications in Rails, but aren't quite sure where to get started. I don't want to be doing the heavy lifting, but I want to guide and help people solves their own problems. I've found teaching how to solve a problem is much better than teaching in an incremental manner.

Does this sound interesting to anyone? Do you know anyone this might sound interesting to? Get in touch!
