How to hire a programmer to make your ideas happen
Do you have an idea for a website, online business, or application, but need a programmer to turn that idea into reality? Many of my friends have been in the same position, so here's my best advice, below. But first, a quick request: If you are a programmer, please leave a reply below with YOUR best advice. Feel free to include your URL and email for anyone to contact you. I know my advice is not complete, (and you may totally disagree!), so any further advice is appreciated. 1. First read my short “Version Infinity” article. Dream the big dream of everything your site/service/company might be some day, and write it all down. But then think of the bare minimum that would make you happy, and people would find useful. Call this Version 1.0. A programmer is much more likely to say, “I can do that!” Your goal here is just to get Version 1.0 built. 2. Again, remember: only describe Version 1.0. Leave off all details that the programmer doesn't need to know. Be succinct. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
