A reader asks:
I have a question that I hope you can help me figure out. I am actively looking for a developer that I can team up with to continue updates, etc. on my web-based application.
You mention in ‘Getting Real’ finding people via open source and I was wondering if you used a particular website for finding open source developers or how you do go about finding someone reputable. Thanks!
GitHub is a good place to find people based on their open-source contributions. Typically, if you want to find an open source developer, you need to follow one or more open source projects and see who is committing actively. It’s not really a smorgasbord affair — at least, not if you want to find quality contributors. (And there’s always our Job Board if you want to place an ad that reaches out to developers.)
