Finding a Co-Founder
Hey All --
I know this isn't a standard topic you expect to see posted on this forum, but I thought I'd ask and see what comes back...
I have an idea for a real estate web app. I've designed wire frames, sequence diagrams, and pages and pages of mock-ups.
However, I need an experienced back end coder to come aboard as a co-founder. I've put word out and gotten multiple responses back, but it seems back-end programming experience, and especially Python experience itself is not very common.
I'm located on the east coast, and most of the replies I get back are from people that have all front end dreamweaver/HTML/CSS type experience. I've gone on a couple of websites, and been to a few meet ups as well.
My question (finally, right?) does anyone have any good suggestions where to look for people who are interested in forming a startup? TIA all.

My suggestion is to look for a freelancer instead. It seems a lot of developers are usually hesitant to parterships online, due to lack of control, creative differences, risk involved, and no immediate return if any.

Thanks for the suggestion. Sounds like a good way to get off the site of the ground quickly.

But I will definitely consider.
