Ask coding questions

Hey!

I'm a beginner programmer with a background in finance & economics, with a big passion for food.

I'm currently building a marketplace start-up and would be interested in bringing on board an experienced coder to take the tech-lead and bring our high-fidelity prototype to life.

Anyone interested in coming on board in a co-founder capacity, say Hi!

What do you want the coder to do? Front-end or back-end? (or full-stack? scary) What language? There are a host of questions to ask.

Would be good to get a front-end and a back-end on board. More than two if possible. But I think a small 3-4 person team is a good balance at this stage :) Thinking of taking a JS approach, using either MERN or MEAN. I've heard Ruby on Rails is a great marketplace language, but at this stage will be about building out the MVP bro @mattdoan

Also, I feel React will be the best front-end option. @mattdoan

Heya, I'm no pro, but I can lend a bit of a hand.

I'm probably not good enough to be your right-hand man, though lol.

Hey bro, dw I'm no pro. What languages are you most comfy in? :) @Zavexeon

@benjaminapp I know Ruby by heart. Pretty decent at JS. Know (but would probably need a refresher in) Java, C, and C++.

Awesome! Hows best to contact you directly? I've been searching for a DM option on here, but I don't think it exists - as of yet anyway! @Zavexeon
