I’m currently in the beginning stages of founding an internet startup
(who isn’t?) and wanted to seek out the communities advice as to
finding a good partner. I’ve developed with RoR some, and, as a long
time linux user and advocate, would like to build the company on the
foundations and philosophies of open source. However, being in the
role of founder, I’m going to be forced to delegate the major managing
of the development of the website to someone else, as I’ll be spending
my time focusing on a number of other tasks.
Does anyone have advice as to where to find a good developer,
particularly one in the RoR community? The company would most likely
be based out of NYC, and I would prefer the person to be local there.
This is my first attempt at a startup, and unfortunately, being young
and in an IT position where everyone uses microsoft tools, most of my
contacts are not ones that would align to my commitment of an open
Any advice, tips, or comments from people that may have been in a
similar position as myself at some point?
