As you may have realized by reading my previous posts, when it comes to managing software projects, my ideas are largely inspired from the Open Source movement, especially if we are talking of big, distributed projects involving many developers. When it comes to managing companies, my inspiration comes from incubators.
Now, if we are talking of hiring developers, I seem to forge my opinion based on what happens in the startup world.
Here are a few interesting pointers on hiring developers that I find inspiring :
- Some tidbits from Joel Spolsky’s talk last night on recruiting programmers
- 9 ways to succesfully edit job postings
- Why Mark Suster is wrong about not hiring job hoppers
- You Don’t Need Math Skills To Be A Good Developer But You Do Need Them To Be A Great One
And of course, salary is an important aspect of hiring. Did you know that the old proverb “money does not make happiness” has been proven wrong by researchers ?
