Thanks for the response.
 
Why does no-one  advertise for legacy (non-new functionality) Ruby-on-Rails Developers?

If they run off the sprint network, I think it would be a good one.

Because they just search for a Senior Ruby Developer with 10 years experience.  No one thinks of the software that runs their business as legacy software, it's a critical business system to them.

Four of us met in Atlanta today and worked for 3.5+ hours - setting up dev environments and learning how to create and accept Pull Requests. Fun time was had by all.

Al, I picked up from sitepoint, jump start rails, and rails deep dive, I am finding those helpful to me to learn this. I got these off learnable.com. For some reason I am not finding Satish's stuff all that useful.
