I've been wanting to see a place/resource build up more hype about Rails and Ruby again like the good ole' days so I'm building one in public.
Some background about what exactly I plan on building is here: [https://web-crunch.com/posts/lets-build-for-ruby-and-rails-developers](https://web-crunch.com/posts/lets-build-for-ruby-and-rails-developers)
I plan to commit to a few hours of recording my progress a week for an initial MVP of the job board portion of the app. Once that's complete I'll do a tentative soft launch and continue adding more of the community features.
#### Primary goals:
- Build some buzz around Ruby / Rails.
- Bring more Ruby and Rails developers together.
- Have a centralized place to find Ruby and Rails jobs.
- Showcase profiles developers can use to get hired.
- Have a community forum for all things Ruby and Rails + more web/programming topics.
- Maybe make some side $$

The ongoing collection of articles/videos is here:
The buzz around the Laravel community is inspiring and is a big driver for me to take on this project.
It's worth noting that I'm not a super-advanced Rails developer like I'm sure many of you are but I believe I know enough to build something such as this (no matter how scrappy to start). Feedback and pointers are welcomed as I'm also using this as a learning experience and potential to earn some side income.
**TL;DR;** I'm building a community and job board for Ruby/Rails developers in public. Maybe follow along if you're interested?
