Forums are a great place for learning. But, often it is not possible to get answers as quickly as they are needed. I am looking for a reliable place where I
get some mentoring, guidance, code review, design review etc for my personal projects, whenever I need it. These projects are not commercial projects and
are only meant for self-learning purposes. I am willing to pay if the mentors/consultants are really knowledgeable and have undergone some background
check to ensure quality.
I looked at a couple of freelancing sites. But, those look suspicious and useless for my purpose. Most of the people I had hired for a previous project were COMPLETE BOZOS.
They had a lot of skills and good testimonies from most of the people they worked for. But, they could not explain basic things in their code and were out to keep me dependent
on them so that they can squeeze my money out of me.
Is there any website where thoroughly vetted consultants can help people like me, instead of code monkeys ?
I don't know about such websites, but if you're willing to accept whatever you can glean about my bona fides from this forum as thorough vetting, I might be able to help you. If you're interested, PM me, and we can flesh out requirements discuss terms, etc.
