I was hoping to get your advice and perhaps inspire discussion on a dilemma that I face and perhaps others do as well.
I've began documenting the business logic and Agile planning for a Twitter application that I would like to implement as soon as possible.
Although I probably could write the code myself, I am an inexperienced developer (hacker) and doing so would be inefficient and slow (I may be able to launch in 2029 :)
The way I see it there are two alternatives:
1. Contractor - hire a developer that will build the application for a fee.
2. Stakeholder - find someone who will be a stakeholder in the project with technical expertise.
Personally, I would prefer to find someone who is willing to join the team (of 1) as a stakeholder, a contractor may be too shortsighted.
I'd like to hear your thoughts on how to "meet" that special someone, is there a match.com
