Programmers Wanted!

Leaky

Hey: Leaky is on the lookout for some new programmers. As Leaky continues to grow and become more complex, we have to offer our resident geniuses, Nick Poulden and Alex Robbin, some help, and we're hoping some of you are interested.

If you'd like to get some great hands-on experience programming for a large audience, and have some experience in web development, we'd love to hear from you. As we use the latest technologies available, you should be fluent in the following:

-HTML and CSS
-Javascript and AJAX
-Ruby on Rails

You should also have some experience with SSH and knowledge of the command line. The most important, however, is the Ruby on Rails experience. That is numero uno to be involved in the programming on the site. The more enthusiasm you have about the position (which is volunteer), the better! When writing in, please include previous works for us to take a look at. To apply, send an e-mail to jobs@the-leaky-cauldron.org with "Web Developer Job Opening" as the subject line. We can't wait to hear from you and hope you become one of our resident geniuses soon!

Wish I could join, but I don’t know Ruby on Rails, or Javascript or AJAX. =/ HTML and CSS I know really well, though. Oh well. sob

I’d love to join your crew, however I try to avoid ruby because I find rails not very scalable to large operations, I am primarily a php programmer, though I work with perl a lot too, AJAX and Javascript I do in spades though.

Oh well, such a shame.

I don’t know if you guys received my application but I am willing to help out. I am currently in school for web developing and accessibility and have very basic programming experience like HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP. If you still need graphic artists, I am available for that as well since I do work a lot with Photoshop. I can learn Ruby but it would take me a while to play around with it.

Rails can’t scale… always good to hear from Php programmer…
Maybe if you stayed tuned and well informed, you’d know that Rails scales.
I’ve seen apps running on clustered BEA SOA suite platform not scaling because of badly defined architecture and poor programming skills…
I would be very interested to join the leaky crew, unfortunately I don’t have time right now…
But I’m very glad to know that the Leaky is rails powered! Congratulation guys!
