Was reading this thread yesterday: When should we expect the first public release?
Some good data snapshots posted by @frabrunelle and it is clear the project needs more developers/contributors.
@dirvine himself said we need to expand the dev team.
How do we do this?
How do we attract high quality reliable passionate developers and keep them interested in the project for long enough that they catch the SAFE bug so to speak?
Some ideas off the top of my head?
-A hackathon, treasure hunt or something similar
-Direct marketing in areas developers hang out e.g. banner ads and email marketing to stackoverflow, codeproject, dreamincode, subreddits etc.
And just generally asking for developers. I have watched and listened to many talks and discussions on SAFE but it’s never really clear that SAFE is looking for developers. Like in sales, you need to ask for the sale to get the sale. If you dont ask you dont receive.
Sorry if this sounds jumbled. I am at work and busting for a wizz. Lol
