While searching for a script today, I stumbled across an interesting site called Rent a Coder. The site serves as a meeting point between software buyers and software coders.
Buyers place requests on the site for programming projects which they need done. Coders who are registered through the site can bid on these requests in hopes of landing the project. Once the bid is accepted, the money is handled through the site and paid upon completion of the project.
It looks like a very good way of both saving money for small business and earning extra cash for programmers. Please comment if you have any experience with this service as either a buyer or a coder. I would love to hear how successful this is.
