Building an internet startup inevitably means you’ll be working with freelancers. While we totally understand that bootstrapping requires some budget cuts, the fact of the matter is that you get what what you pay for. It’s easy enough to cut corners when you’re hiring out, but wouldn’t you ultimately…
I’ve been writing about tech startups for nearly a year now. Endless tales of teenage tech millionaires, and billion-dollar buyouts. Stories of personal triumphs and professional successes. Ideas and innovation that are revolutionizing our world. Needless to say, I’ve been inspired on a daily basis to…
Consumer ADD is only getting worse. Web development teams must not only know how to create through programming, but they must also be passionate about consumer behavior. More is not better. Developers should aim to marry style and simplicity to avoid stirring feelings of overwhelm or distraction…
I’ve been bemoaning the fact that there isn’t a go-to jobs listed site for startups for awhile now. What’s a skilled developer searching for the next big thing to do? And what about those founders who just can’t seem to find the developer with the right set of skills? I’m beginning to think, however, that…

What good is spending all your budget on an app you’re developing, and ending up without a penny to spend on promotion? That’s a bit like building up the most fanciful restaurant ever, only to realize that you’ve run out of money to hire waiters and other staff afterwards. And while such a thing seems too-obvious a pitfall to be avoided, things are seldom that black and white in real life. It’s all too easy for your budget to run dry sooner than expected, and end up in the awkward position of having a great product in your hands that you have trouble marketing, or even testing.
That’s where Resonity comes in. It’s a community site that’s been built for developers. If you’re one, you’ll be able to use the site to upload these apps you’ve created, and give fellow developers a chance to review them. They’ll get back to you with their honest feedback, and you’ll get to know how your app could be improved without having to spend a cent, not to mention that you’ll be getting feedback from people who really know their stuff.
And you can do all that from your mobile, too. You can get the Resonity app at the iTunes store, and begin having your own applications shared with the rest of the Resonity community in no time at all.
A new payment processing platform for developers, Stripe will let them be paid by their clients in a really fast way. Developers that go for Stripe will be able to collect payments and bypass all the usual PCI requirements of other online companies such as PayPal. Stripe takes care of that – it works with banks and large financial institutions from all around the world, and it handles everything from cards and subscriptions. All a developer has got to do is to add a couple of lines to his backend for Stripe to start processing transactions for him.
Ruby, PHP and Python are all supported, and in addition to being a platform that can be deployed really quickly Stripe has got the merit of keeping pricing very reasonable. Basically, the company limits itself to charging 2.9% + 30 cents per each successful transaction. And that’s it. There are no setup fees, minimum charges or validation fees. As a matter of fact, the company doesn’t even charge clients if payments fail through.
You can sign up for Stripe here. And lots of examples are included for you to start using the Stripe API in no time at all. Just follow this link, and cut and paste anything which looks interesting into your terminal.
Developers, designers, illustrators and copywriters who are looking for a gig and who’re running out of options will most likely see the light here. Tinyproj is meant to connect them with people who could use a hand with some short-term projects. These can post exactly what they’re looking for, and they can do so really quickly – a project pitch can be created in less than 1 minute, and the person posting the job can remain completely anonymous. It’s just a matter of specifying what they need to get done, and how much money they’re willing to pay for it. The idea is that only small projects with realistic budgets and timelines will be included on Tinyproj.com.
Once the project pitch has been created and approved, it will be duly sent to all the users of the site who meet the requirements that have been set down there. The ones who think they are up for the challenge will be able to get in touch directly with the person who needs the job done, and start talking things over.
Projects can be listed on the site for $25, whereas job seekers can join Tinyproj absolutely for free.
We can define Gideros Studio as a development environment for mobile software. Using it, developers will be allowed to build, test and deploy mobile applications. They will be able to do so in a really easy way, using a Flash-like programming interface that keeps things as simple as possible. And developers will be able to deploy everything into some of the most popular mobile devices of the day simultaneously. Thus, the compatibility/usefulness of what they are developing is going to be guaranteed to an almost foolproof degree.
Gideros Studio is suited to the development of both native games and applications. And to be more specific, the mobile devices that are supported include iPhones, iPads and Android phones. Besides, Gideros Studio is a multiplatform application in the truest sense of the word, as Windows, Mac, and Linux are all supported (or meant to be supported soon).
Gideros Studio can be downloaded and used for free, and the moment an application has been written then it can be tested for real on a physical device, or through a simulator right on your computer. Note, though, that a paid version of Gideros is also available. This will remove the splash screen that is shown before the application you have developed launches. Other than that, the free and paid versions of Gideeros are not different in any way.

Is there a more logical context for web designers and developers to look for jobs than the Internet itself? Unlikely. That is how they connect with the world, that is where they put their skills to good use. More than anybody, that is where they make new bonds. It only makes too much sense they will look for new jobs and positions in such a setting.
And Jobety is a site which makes such a task a lot easier, and a lot more direct. Here, they will be able to specify where they are located along with their area of expertise for a list of matching positions to be produced.
The location can be established by supplying either a ZIP code or the name of the city in question, whereas the area of expertise can be ascertained by naming the language or protocol (IE Jquery, Java, HTML…). Results will become displayed on the spot, and they will be navigable using a simple interface. Users are not allowed to save them or compare them in any way or the other, though.
CoderStack is a job board for developers. Here, companies that are hiring make it clear which positions they have to cover, and people are allowed to apply to them.

On this site, just any person who signs up for an account can proceed to have his app code put for sale. Apps that range truly far and wide are offered: entertainment applications, application for specific devices (such as iPhones or iPads) applications for sports lovers, for adults, for students… There are so many categories available that enumerating all of them would take more paragraphs than anybody would care to read. Still, another that has to be mentioned owing to how many people are bound to head for it is the one devoted solely to Facebook apps.
Listings can be posted for free to begin with. If you want your ad to have greater exposure, then you can go for a featured listing. But accounts are created for free in all cases.
If you are a web developer looking for fresh challenges to tackle, then this is a site you should really consider visiting. SitePoint Market is where people from all over the world can list open projects for experienced developers to volunteer their services, and carry them to completion.
The development of apps, the design of sites and the creation of original web content are just three of the featured categories. These are the ones that I am sure will generate the most interest. And there is also one that is devoted to SEO projects. I am certain that will attract a lot of attention as well.
Listings can be posted quick and easy, and (according to what you are actually advertising) they can be posted on the site free of charge. Still, you can always choose to pay a fee and have them prominently featured on the homepage for all to see. And in any case, these listings that are ending soon are always highlighted for developers to take good notice.

The Coder Charts website is where you should set your browser to if you are a programmer, and you think your skills could use a little polishing up.

Web designers and developers that have been commissioned to build a mobile site are going to be thankful that a service such as Mobilastic exists. In essence, Mobilastic will let them use what they already know (HTML, CSS and Django) and build sites like they have always done, but only that these sites will be fully compatible with mobile devices from the very beginning. For example, all the images that are featured there will be resized in order to match the aspect ratio of the device in question. Plus, the developer himself has full control over markup and code. And AdMob integration for ad serving and analytics is provided.
Ask any developer about a service like Mobilastic and you are getting the very same answer: any tool that lets them code like they have always done and do away with proprietary syntax is a tool that can save them lots of time and frustration. These are the terms in which Mobilastic is always going to be discussed and commented, and the one context in which its usefulness will always shine truer.
We can define Better Codes as a collaboration platform that is aimed at developers. Through this site, they will be able to connect with individuals who are tackling the very same problems that they are facing, and exchange insight back and forth until they find the answers they were in sore need of.
As expected, the site also makes for the sharing of fun experiences that you have had while coding, when working here or there, when playing that game… Groups can actually be created and/or joined, so that makes socializing even easier for everybody. And an activity feed is displayed in every case, showcasing what topics are keeping your new friends occupied as of late.
Joining the Better Codes community costs absolutely nothing (though donations are appreciated). You just choose a username that you would like to use, and then you will be ready to interact with people who are in your same wavelength, and who will probably help you solve any difficulty that you come across when trying to do your job.
