How to find remote job for ExtJS developer?
How to find remote job for ExtJS developer?
I want to ask Sencha community and maybe Sencha.
How ExtJS developer can find job?
On forum it is recommended to try senchadevs, but in fact it does not
help to find job.
I during over many years constantly try to find some extra job with 40+ hours
per months. I have main job(not ExtJS) but want some more.
I very much played with ExtJS in past, and even knew ExtJS source of 2,3,4 versions
and even did some small vector framework on base on Ext Core 3(MIT)
Here is my last big eperience with ExtJS and my lib 3 years ago
and some enabling of it working to nowdays http://fancymaps.org/
3 years ago I wanted to get 20$ per hour, for the moment I want to get 50$.
Yes it is high but still I want 50$.
I just see that my knownledge goes away and I think what to do.
I think I have to through away about 4 years deep using ExtJS.
I developed about 5 CRMs from scratch on ExtJS and support some projects.
About month ago I find some firm on 25$ per hour on odesk for truck company, but was cheated and
did not get money, so if to work I want to get advance only. Maybe with 500$ advance, but no work
So I see that my ExtJS knoweledge are not needed on market and plan total forget about it and
begin to move AngularJS and this style if ExtJS is no more in trend.
I also have odesk account, but it does not help much too.
So I do not see anyway how coder can find remote job.
About 4 years search and no result...

Thank you very much
The matter is every firm also wants to hire developer locally and remote good job is very seldom.
I wrote in more than 300 firms that I find in different ways about ExtJS.
Almost every time anwer is we need local developer or low rate or some small thing.
So want to find long term and good rate.

On craglist unfortunately there is not ExtJS job.
I knew many vacancies in USA about ExtJS even on 100$ per hour for USA citizens.
Also I have offers to move abroad about ExtJS by momentum company
and some others but none remote.
So pity that I best know ExtJS but I earn not over it and can not find remote job.

It was like this:
I was dirrected to developer of firm, Nickolay Platonov.
He is very cool developer with many years experience and second by number of node js modules.
In common super proffesional.
He offered me to work 1 week for free and develop simple Testing CRM(or something like this, I do not remember now) on ExtJS, using Siesta.
The matter is I never used any testing tools before and although I did much on ExtJS to that time, I have no idea what to do.
Note: I have never used any testing tools because, testing is plus 30-50% of time on developing and all before clients has not big money and did not pay for that and needed fast result.
Also I was offered to learn some libs that Nickolay did like juice it, some his made module for some NoSQL database.
I was offered 1500$ for such work.
I just view first on week for free, also develop CRM that I did not get how to do, because to do it only over Siesta.
And also 1500$ for such job I think is was too small, it shoudl start at least from 20-30$ per hour, but not for 10$ per hour.
So I think and did not know how to refuse from job.
And when my computer show me blue screen I was very happy and let know bryntum that can not work this resoane.
After that when I got that bryntum is serios company, I tried to be hired again, but did not get reply.
Maybe I offend them by mistake.
Maybe I did mistake.
I do not have communication skill, I live in code and maybe it looks simple to communicate with people but for me it is easy to commicate with computer.
Do not know what to do for getting good job.
When accept all client wants than in result I were cheated on 15000$ for 4 years.
If to ask advance payment that client think that I will cheat him.
If I were in USA I would not have problem with job, but I am not in USA, I very like my country and want to stay in it.

To use other lib is quite difficult for be because I started to learn js from native js and than ExtJS.
I can not develop code on JQuery. Algought it is quite simple, I can not write code on JQuery, backbone and so on.
I like ExtJS style, I much did on Qt many years before and ExtJS remind me it.
For developer it is bad when he can not learn new style, but can not write code on JQuery which is 95% of market. For me it it easier to write code on Ext Core 3, forgotten lib.
I think in OOP style of ExtJS not in JQuery's OOP libs style and can not change it, tried many times.

You keep mentioning about jobs in the US that pay $100/hr for EXTJS coding.
Not sure where you got that idea, but no serious company anywhere, not just US, will hire you for $100/hr just because you can code in EXTJS. Companies are looking for developers that can come up with solutions to their business needs and will be worth their ROI.
Promote your solutions not just your coding knowledge, and don't focus on $/hr too much.varsos

About 100$, I just know 2 vacancy in Energy company for USA citizens only.
Of course it is not for just usual ExtJS developer.
As for me, I am not limited about only ExtJS, and nothing more.
I did full stack of CRMs on ExtJS + php/node.js + mysql = it was very fast and my clients needs fast and cheap. About ROR and other backend, it can be when client is ready to pay money and usually requires at least 2 developers.
About do not focus on hour rate, I during some years think what is the best about for what to get money, for fixed price for project, hour rate or other. The only one good way about value project is hour rate.
I do not want 100$ per hour, for the ExtJS for me quite ok is 30$, but I want max 50$ per hour.
Why I can not write code on JQuery, it could seems strange, but I can not.
I like good code style, JQuery in comparing to ExtJS has bad code style.
It takes too much time to explain it.
ExtJS code is like book for me, I just read it and understand every line.
JQuery code and its brach libs are complex and use javasript hacks.
Even $() and $. with any name for global scope, it is already hack.
Do not want to offend JQuery developers, JQuery is on market, but I do not want to code on it.
