A few months ago, I asked a Question at Workplace on skills advancement, in short I started my career as PHP developer and I'm now interested in RAILS development. I've spent some time learning rails and now I believe I am in a position to understand the ruby code.
I followed zombies tutorials, codecademy tutorials, and have been though the Agile and dev books.
Now the problem is that, as I added RAILS in my resume and I am getting calls on the basis but when they came to know that I am not a proper RAILS developer then no one actually is taking me seriously they only count me as a PHP developer, I asked from few of my friends and they are suggesting me to do freelancing work, but I am not counting it in my option as 1)Most of the projects are deadline specific and require team efforts(I am a single man army) 2)I dont want to cheat them by making false promises just for my own sake.
I am familiar with git and already asked a question specific to it.
I tried Meetup as well but it is not active in my geographic location :(
So my question, Is their an online RAILS community or any other community/website where I can volunteer my spare time and enhance my rails skills at the same time.
NOTE- To my best I tried to explain all my concerning points, but still if something is unclear please let me know I will surely do the edits :)
