Ruby on Rails gets down to business

Posted by Tue, 29 May 2007 13:53:00 GMT

It’s been a week since I announced the new Ruby on Rails meets the business world group. Already, the group attracted over 300 members from around the globe... from Argentina, Boston, Australia, Florida, Seattle, Portland!, the Netherlands, and South Africa.

We’ve already seen some great topics come up… from:

  • Project estimates
  • Fixed bids versus time and materials
  • Pricing
  • Handling code ownership with client contracts
  • Incorporating (LLC, S CORP?)
  • Managing money/accounting
  • Contracts

I expect that many of these topics will resurface and there has been a lot of valuable information passed around. It’s exciting to see that so many people not only want to use Ruby on Rails as a platform of choice for their business ventures, but they’re also willing to share their personal experiences and knowledge to help others move into this space.

If you’re running a business that focuses on Ruby on Rails or just considering it, you should stop by and introduce yourself.

update: membership grew from 200 to over 300 in the past day!
