The Russian job market for Ruby developers is growing. In April, Russian companies were ready to hire 158 developers, and in May they already needed 252.

The biggest number of job openings is in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Novosibirsk. 17 regions of the country, which are, in fact, remote from large IT centers, have one or two job openings each. But this is mostly remote work from Moscow employers looking for specialists in other regions for money saving reasons.

GitHub to Launch Sponrship System

GitHub does not charge fees, and the first year will cover the costs of processing payments

System called GitHub Sponsors is launched to provide financial support for open source projects. The new service provides a new form of participation in the development of projects - if the user does not have the opportunity to help in the development, he or she can join the projects of interest as a sponsor and help through funding specific developers, maintainers, designers, documentation authors, testers and other participants involved in the project.

Using the sponsorship system, any GitHub user can monthly transfer fixed amounts to open source developers who have registered with the service as members willing to receive financial support (the number of participants is limited at the time the service is tested). Sponsored members can define support levels and associated sponsor privileges, such as exceptional bug fixes. The possibility of organizing financing not only individual participants, but also the groups of developers involved in the work on the project is being considered.

Unlike other co-financing sites, GitHub does not charge fees, and the first year will cover the costs of processing payments. In the future, the introduction of fees for processing payments is not excluded. To support the service, a special fund called GitHub Sponsors Matching Fund has been created, which will deal with the distribution of financial flows.
