I have an idea for a piece of SEO software but need to find a developer. I was thinking about eLance but was a little hesitant. Once I put the idea out there it could be lost forever. Not to mention that I really have know way of knowing if the proposed vendors are any good.
On elance the reviews are often doctored or vendors beg and plead for 5 stars. What you don't see is how much back and forth there was before users were satisfied.
ANY ADVICE on how to find a good programmer that won't cost an arm and a leg who can help me build some simple software?
