Hello, I hope you are well. I’ve been a server owned since May 2020 and I’ve been having a really hard time finding reliable, trustworthy developers that a) know their stuff and b) are able to deliver and c) are consistent and dependable.
I’m a people and process guy and would rather do just about anything other than code (configuration stuff isn’t bad) - so I need to have a developer on side to take care of that part. I’m wondering how other owners are doing it?
Personally, I program for myself for those exact reasons. Trust being the biggest issue. As there are a lot of scumbags out there, that want to either steal your code or try to do something malicious.
Biggest thing I can say about having reliable help is to KYC (know your client) or in this case, coder.
Have people sign an NDA, know who the real person is as if you’re their employer, which you are whether paid or not.
Is good help hard to come by? Absolutely! Is it impossible? No. But it will be very difficult.
