About Working With Rails
Working With Rails is an open database where anyone can add or remove information about an individual involved within the Rails community.
Some of the main features, all built using our Kit Community and Content Management System, include:
- Find popular members of the Rails community and their followers
- Locate talented developers in your area
- Keep up to date with what the top developers are doing
- Find a developer by their nick name / handle
- Give as much freedom as a Wiki using a structured database.
- Improve the usability and accessibility of the content
- Increase reliability - give back control and ownership to the individuals whose information is being displayed
- Try to avoid the problems of spam that the Rails wiki suffers by protecting against attacks.
The original Working With Rails wiki page provided the starting point for this project. It gives an insight into the developers working in the Rails community and where they are from. We wanted to expand upon this concept incorporating a tool for finding and locating developers, gauging trends and seeing who is in whose sphere of influence.
We're based in London, England, but WorkingWithRails is a true global community. Welcome!
