He followed an online course (google teamtreehouse, paid) and managed to join one of the leading RoR startups here as a junior dev. So it's definitely possible. Attending the meetups might also help you find peers and mentors, and to stay motivated.
And yet another option, try finding an open source RoR project that you can contribute to, you might get famous :)
