Hi there,

I've recently got interested in programming and have been teaching
myself for the past 6 months on programming ruby and rails. I've come to
really enjoy programming and have done some side projects (nothing too
big) for myself. I don't have a CS or technical background, but I'd like
to pursue Ruby programming as a profession.

I was wondering what kind of skill set I would need to be somewhat
comfortable with to even consider applying for a ruby job? Is
contributing to open source projects the only route I can take?
