Todays special guest is ME! Most people don’t know this but I spent the majority of the last 10 years building and managing development teams. Along the way I’ve picked up a few truths, mainly stolen from people like Joel Spolsky. Some of these ideas can be found in an article I wrote a while ago titled “Nerd Herding”, a link to which can be found in the show notes.

Recently, I’ve had many people ask me variations of the same question, “How do I find talented programmers?” So today, I’m going to share with you some of the things I’ve learned.
