So, I run a website where I sell fancy keyboard stuff. This website runs on Shopify. Shopify is abysmally awful and an embarrassment to the human race. I therefore wish to make my own custom replacement, in hopes of making the process more pleasant for my clients and daily administrative headaches less painful for me.
I used to run a Ruby on Rails consulting firm and was involved in that technology from its earliest days, so theoretically I should be able to code my own solution. However, I (happily!) now spend most of my time getting fancy keyboards into the hands of eager enthusiasts, so I don’t really have time to code the whole thing myself. Nor does selling keyboards generate enough money for me (yet?) to be able to afford to hire a fancy firm to make one for me for some insane six-figure sum.
So I’ve been wondering if there might be any folks here in the keyboard community with Rails skills who would be interested in some contract work (paid, of course) helping me develop a custom Ruby on Rails e-commerce backend. I’ve been exploring working with various freelancers around the world, but it would be so much nicer (and more fun) to work with someone who actually knows and cares about keyboards.
If you know someone (or are someone!) who might be interested, please let me know!
