|Hi Hacker News,|
Rails programmer here -- I've been working with Rails since 2008 and I've been doing remote jobs for a living since then.
Lately I can't find any work at all with Rails, what's going on? What happened? Where did all the Rails jobs went?
I remember during 2008 doing multiples jobs at the same time, I used to get lots of offers, lots of interviews and gigs, etc, things have been really nice. Nowdays I barely get any interviews, and if I'm lucky to talk to someone, they ask for Node.js/Ember experience as well, etc.
Did all the jobs went to Node.js and other languages? Or I'm just doing something wrong?
It's really depressing accumulating all the knowledge and skills I got since then and not being able to use it or find more work. Even more depressing that I can't find work and my income depends on this.
Any suggestions or recommendations welcome. I'm only looking for remote work.
Sigh, please help. :-(
