    Default Freelancers.net?

    Hi,

    You could check out Freelancers.net. Not sure what the quality is like but used to be very good. Can search for a skill then go through and look at locations. Better than Upwork / People Per Hour, but will still get some offshore people on there too.

    How much is it to put something on Jobserve, or a free site that'll be gobbled up by one of the aggregators?

    Pay nothing and you'll get a quantity of rubbish, though

    (Emphasis mine).

    There's the problem. If you're too cheap to pay for an advert, I don't even want to think about what your rate might be like.

    contractors aren't good at recruiting people.

    They often have a massive chip on their shoulder about agents.
    And when they find it hard to find anyone it's because they "have such unique skills". It reinforces their own bias about their amazing skillz.

    Woohoo an actual Ruby Dev, this makes me happy as there don't seem to be many about these days. I myself am in the Testing space and Ruby is my main language, people tend to scoff a bit when they hear that because it's not Java

    Probably most of them moved to Python & Go, and Ruby On Railers moved to Elixir?

    I don’t think many Rails devs have moved on to Elixir - it looks interesting but not if you actually want to find work. It’s pretty niche.

    A lot of Rails devs have more likely moved on to “full stack” and now they have to write JavaScript for a living. I don’t envy them. React, and all that kind of thing. The front end ecosystem is a mess. Lots of work in that space though.

    Go seems to be getting some traction commercially too.

    But you wouldn't have known if you met him. He appears fairly normal and an alround decent fella.
