Re: [newtech-1] oDesk coding project advice?

I use bitbucket (its free and private for small repos) and ask them to post their code there. Its useless if I cant read it and run it in my own environment.

I suppose If you have an existing codebase you could create multiple repos and ask individual devs to contribute edit etc.  and then pick the one that works best for you 

The ones I work with on an ongoing basis, I have shared repos just like you would with any distributed team.

Is it acceptable to have them work out of your private github account?  I'd feel safer if I could review and build the code myself.

Id recommend trying  2 to 3 devs/freelancers and pick the one that you can work with best. Often its the non-technical skills (responsiveness,  communication skills, willingness to learn new stuff and fix stuff they didn't get right etc) that trump pure technical skills.

That small upfront 2-3x cost upfront is totally worth it.
