Suggestions for learning Ruby and/or Rails
Emerald City Programming Group
The Emerald City Programming Group is a group of people getting together in Norcross to learn how to program in Rails. Look for Emerald City on the calendar at Atlanta Ruby on Meetup.com
Look for materials that are up to date and use current best practices (probably written in 2010 or 2011).
Be wary of tutorial materials that fail to use Ruby 1.9+ and Rails 3.0+, or fail to reference Git, RVM, or Bundler.
We've found this book to be an excellent resource for top-down learners: people who like to attack real problems right away, and figure out how the language and framework function as they go.

Networking sounds like an MBA buzzword, but it is as easy as coming to a Meeting and talking about what interests you in software. We encourage you to come and ask people about their jobs.
How to hire a Ruby developer.
There is a lot of demand for Ruby developers, so hiring can be challenging.
Send one of your current developers to announce an opening at an AtlRug Meeting. Make sure to tell people how your job is different.
If you have no technical experience, you may need a partner who understands technology.
