Are you new to Rails? Need help debugging or cleaning up your code? I can help!

Eastern Time (US & Canada) (-05:00)
Mastering the in's-and-out's of Rails can be tricky, especially for a beginner. I've been using the framework exclusively for over 6 years, so I can help you learn from my own experience. -- I've been running my own NYC Ruby on Rails consultancy for the past 6+ years, working with entrepreneurs, startups, and small businesses to build web applications for their technology-based businesses. My previous experience was as a .NET developer, so I know what it's like to be learning Rails for the first time. I can help with *debugging* those issues that you just can't figure out, *refactoring* the code that just doesn't look right, and *learning* the best practices and conventions that will take you from beginner to intermediate and beyond. Two heads are always better than one, so don't hesitate to schedule a session! http://www.carlosramireziii.com/mentor
Ruby on rails expert help Ruby on Rails - 6 years experience
I am a professional Ruby on Rails developer and have been using the framework almost exclusively for the past 6+ years. I have built dozens of production web applications for clients and as side-projects during that time. My most recent work includes a marketplace for trading and purchasing beauty products (http://edivv.com) and a platform for matching interns/job-seekers with innovative startups (https://www.nafasi.co). I have a deep understanding of Rails conventions, best practices and principles. I am also a skilled debugger that can help track down the nastiest of bugs.
Ruby expert help Ruby - 6 years experience
I use Ruby in conjunction with the Ruby on Rails web application platform.
Git expert help Git - 6 years experience
I use Git on a daily basis for version controlling my source code and interacting with open-source projects. Keeping a clean Git history through rebasing, feature branching, and writing good commit messages is my passion. I think more developers should take the time to learn how to use Git to its fullest capacity.
No icon Heroku - 6 years experience
Every single one of my projects has been deployed to the Heroku platform, so I'm a pro at getting it up and running with Rails, debugging deployment issues, and setting up add-ons and third-party services.
No icon Lean startup - 6 years experience
My work as a consultant in New York City's "Silicon Alley" has put me in contact with scores of startups. Seeing their successes and failures has made me a believer in the "lean startup" methodology of bootstrapping your business, validating your ideas *before* building anything, and failing fast. I've worked with these clients to run experiments, build MVPs, and think outside of the box about how to get their idea off the ground. I can help you brainstorm, strategize, and execute on all your technology-based ideas. If you are a budding entrepreneur (or even an experienced one), do yourself a favor and learn about the lean startup movement and give it a shot. You'll save yourself time, money, and heartache, and you'll give yourself the *best* chance of succeeding.
