 Are you fucking serious? You wrote "it's not impossible for women to succeed"?
How very generous of you.

Yes it could be true, but if you have a smart technical team it's not impossible for women to succeed. I have seen a lot of women develop their own business and do great because they do have a drive and an eye for detail. But getting a technical team together requires a lot of work.
Feel free to conact me in case you think that you want to work with my team.

Cynthia,

I am a coder who works with non-technical clients all the time -- and there are many of us in the United States.  The ability to communicate with non-technical people is an essential skill for a developer, and a skill that is sometimes missing  if you work with developers who are not fluent in your language.

I have to stick up for Kimberly here for a minute.  It is VERY difficult to get coders to talk to you in any meaningful way if you're a non-technical founder.  And I'm not saying everyone's a sexist, but I believe it's even harder if you're female and non-technical. 

There are a million reasons why, and I don't have the time or energy to unpack them all right now, but the bottom line is that it's not about access to an email list of available talent, or about unemployment rates.  It's about finding a partner who's interested in, sees the value of, and is willing to work alongside a non-technical founder.

Let me see if I understand this....
We are on a distribution of over 30,000 technologists.  We have record high unemployment in the US.
And we are concluding there are no coders left in America so the only options are sending the work to India.  Is that what I just read?

Hi Kimberly,
I have my own team and am following   similar kind of strategy.
If you like email me and we can talk offline. I do have a few sites completed check this one http://www.iseozone.com/


Thanks,

Good Morning Everyone,

I'm sure this question gets asked from time-to-time: does anyone have experience using Indian programmers/coders.  I'm bootstrapping right now, have tried the "sweat equity" route to find a coder/programmer, and it hasn't really gone well.
At this point, in order to develop a minimum viable product, I'm willing to scrape up funds from somewhere and just outsource the job overseas.

Thanks,

Kimberly
