The Rails Dilemma (obiefernandez.com)

Hire a solid consultant or consulting firm to train up your existing talent and then learn how to look for new trainable talent in your area.

Also, be willing to pay more for high talent that may not know Rails today. Don't assume that you can pay way below market rates for talent that can easily pick up the framework in a few months.


If you don't have enough experts, hire smart guys and train them. Problem solved.

If you are looking for three months without success, in the same time a good programmer with some web experience could have already become a great Rails programmer. Another three months in a team with great people and he will write any code you want.
