Just wanted to share that a few weeks ago I asked a [question](https://www.reddit.com/r/rails/comments/b4byg2/hey_everyone_can_you_help_me_with_a_mistery_here_d/) here regarding a job test I got for that weekend. I got some answers from the awesome community and I could keep going with my test. Last week the company called me for an onsite interview and while I got super nervous and kinda forgot how to code super basic stuff I could still straight myself out for the rest of the interview and at the end it stopped feeling like an interview and it was more like a nice chat with awesome devs and a CTO which I'm fully aware each of them know their rails at least 10x better than me.
Anyways. I though everything was lost since I got super nervous on the live coding part. But yesterday this company's CTO called me and made an offer! So two weeks from now I'll start a new life as a FullStack Developer strongly focused on Rails!
Just wanted to thank you for helping out and hopefully I'll be around a lot more time since I'm officially a Rails dev!
TLDR: QA tester lands a Rails job after failing to become a programmer long enough, life's good!

Congratulations, I started working in Rails a few months ago and there are some really good tutorials out there that I would suggest reviewing before starting the job.. Pluralsite has a good one I went through and there are multiple on youtube as well. Good luck!
good stuff 🙂
Stay there for at least a year or two and it’ll be much easier to get the next one too.
Great. Good days are coming your way.
Wow congrats on the achievement! I
Wow you’re living the dream! Do you know about how many hours you put in? Im at around hour 400 now (I know time is secondary to learning/building/writing good code) but several redditors said it took them ~1000 hours to get hired. If you would share more details about your learning journey I’d love to know! Im QA also learning ruby/rails! Im wasting my opportunity to benefit from working “adjacent” to devs (except i do skim/read most code I test)
Congrats man, keep it up!
