Looking for Rails work? / Hiring Rails developers?

General • Asked by Chris Oliver

Similar to the Hacker News thread, I thought we might start up a thread for anyone looking to hire a Ruby / Rails freelancer or if you're a freelancer looking for work.

Please lead with either SEEKING WORK or SEEKING FREELANCER, your location, and whether remote work is a possibility.

If you have a portfolio it would be handy to have links too ;) Great idea btw Chris.

Don't have a portfolio persé since 95% of my work has been under a pretty tight NDA, but have and I can provide snippets on request :)

SEEKING FREELANCER (remote - via skype)

Before I give up on trying to learn how to use polymorphic associations in my app, I thought I might try here to find someone that might know how to help. I've outlined my issue in this Stack Overflow post.

The frustrating part about trying to figure this problem out is that I can do what I want to do in the console. I just cant make the code work in a consistent way.

Here is my most recent post outlining the problem and the best 10 attempts I've made at trying to solve it. If you can help me, I'd love to know how to use this association - otherwise I'll give up and make separate resources for each duplicate relationship.

I'm happy to pay for help (but find on and similar, that I tend to spend hours watching people decide that they cant help). It gets frustrating and expensive.

I need help accessing the **GOogle Adwords API + Google Analytics API
.. Been trying to learn this on my own, but am stuck and not really getting anywhere. With the Google Adwords API, I am able to retrieve campaign details via the console, but I am doing something wrong while accessing it via the app.

Was hoping that someone here has used these APIs before and can show me how to do the same. Will pay for your time, and it can be done online. It'll greatly help if I can see how someone experienced with this, goes about it.

Let me know.. You can reply here - or my email is [email protected]
