findDev - Tinder for finding your developer partners.

Project Type
Open source idea
Summary

findDev - Tinder for finding your developer partners.

Description
Are you looking for a partner developer? Someone to help you brainstorm or bounce your ideas off of? A front-end wizard for your back-end superhero powers? findDev is a mobile application which I’m looking to get off the road. Using react, or BaaS as of the moment, I’m looking to math developers looking for specifically skilled developers, with other developers having those skills. I’ve got quite a few ideas, but bouncing them off while typing on mobile can be difficult. Feel free to comment, and let’s talk!
Tech Stack
React Native? Native? Debatable.

    @heyheni there are female devs too xD and I’m looking forward to that

    I'm in! Hmu!

    designer pro tipp: don't focus on how to build it technicaly. Put your effort first on understanding the female devs needs and why they should use it.

    Hahaha amazing

    I have a team of friends familiar with React, and they'd be down to dive into React Native for a badass idea like this

    @theNox Are you enrolled in TU Wien by any chance? (Cause of the Austria/Slovakia in your profile)
  • 8
    @Azer0s I'm not, but on the other Uni in Vienna πŸ˜‰
  • 5
    @theNox Another person studying in Vienna? What are the odds?
  • 8
    @Azer0s The odds are pretty high if you think about how many students there are in Vienna
  • 5
    @theNox That's not what I meant...I meant what are the odds of finding another person who's studying in Vienna on devrant...πŸ˜‚πŸ™ƒ
  • 7
    @Azer0s Still higher than when you study in some pretty unknown place, though I know someone here who I think used to? study in Vienna who's on here as well
  • 8
    @theNox @Azer0s I see that findDevs is on the move already haha
  • 8
    @rui725 hahaha you're right
  • 2
    Haha, this is great! I’ll setup a communication channel so I can invite everyone to some real-time messaging platform. How do slack or gitter sound, or do you all have something else in mind?

    Didn’t expect this much response :) Let’s get this started!
  • 4
    @anish Yea setup a slack channel and probably verify the people who wants to join the development.. I’m in btw though I’m not pro web dev.. I recently just learned node mongo and express no front end frameworks..
  • 5
    I see lots of non-coders looking for someone to do free work for them for their “billion dollar idea”. “It’s like Facebook but for [something else]”
  • 4
    @Azer0s
    I'm also studying in Vienna
  • 2
    @anish Slack sounds great!
  • 3
    If you end up doing this, I’ll help design/map out/code the iOS version if you go native
  • 2
    I love this idea, if you're making a native android app, I'm an android developer and I'd love to help. I'd also definitely use it... i dont social good
  • 1
    love to help but not very good with those technologies. I'd love to test and best of luck!
  • 2
    I've never done any work in open source. But I'm keen to try and help!
  • 2
    Sweet, this sounds great. I'm just going to be finalizing some stuff tonight, and early morning. Grabbing the basic domain names, and getting a repository setup with some basic information.

    I'll tag everyone who want's in sometime tomorrow with a slack invite link to join in, and we can go from there!

    @anish sounds great! I’m in!

    I'm in! Love this idea

    I'm in. Post the source link and I'll check it out πŸ‘

    Depending on the backend... Python w/ flask/Django anyone?
  • 2
    @kyleperik yes! Django for the win!!!
  • 1
    next collab; "Ashley Maddevson"
  • 6
    @daegontaven No...please not...can't we do the backend in PHP 7 with Laravel or Node.js?
  • 4
    @daegontaven We could also do C++ with pistache or (my personal favorite) C# with ASP.Net Web API.
    I'm open for anything but I don't think python is suitable for this usecase.

    @Azer0s well I don't know how django is not suitable for this project.

    Either ways I personally think the development should be in either JS, Python or Ruby.

    To start off, most developers already know these languages and they have well placed and opinionated conventions which means it is more suitable when working with multiple developers.

    Also Django and Rails cannot really be compared to most development frameworks in other languages. They are both great choices, very mature and provide functionality right out of the box.

    However flask is never a good idea for application that would need to be scaled later. Neither is using the less mature Node Js frameworks like Express or Meteor which are less opinioned.

    From my opinion, (Remeber that this is just my opinion) Django or Ruby is the only way to achieve increased productivity. They provide good conventions and can be scaled indefinitely.

    @daegontaven We have very different opinions then (that's not a bad thing, of course) πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚...I think it's not about comfortability but instead about performance, reliability and security. I think that C# with ASP.NET Web API or Go with mux are perfect because they're designed to be used in enterprise solutions where all those requirements are in place.

    Please don't call it the Tinder for developers

    Not so good with the development stuff (still learning) but would love to help. Had a similar idea but never worked on it. πŸ˜…

    @1nfinite it's like tinder, but better..

    @rui725 if that's what's it's like to be on findDevs I will rather stay away from it or atleast stay away from Vienna girls ;)
  • 3
    @anish I'm in! Would go with @Azer0s suggestion about PHP/Laravel.

    Frontend in what? SPA? Native Apps? Crossplatform apps?
  • 1
    I’m in. I can work on iOS/Android part of the project

    Will be cool if you can search only for devs who use spaces or tabs, so that there are no wars
  • 0
    I'm in!
    I'm more of a backend guy, but I'm pretty good on the frontend web design stuff. I guess if it's for developers we don't really need old browser support... so I can use Css Grid?
    On the backend, I would rather go with .net core 2.0 or nodejs.
    Please post the slack channel link

    Great Idea! ++ to React Native. I'd like to collab if within my schedule. And btw we share the same name too. Hi5!

    @CorruptComputer works in both directions...

    I'm in :)

    I'm definitely in. You could also include pools for teams within certain companies. That could be a solid breakthrough.

    Here's a slack thing:

    Good idea but I like the name devDate better.

    @heyheni neither does full homo :)

    I need the link.

    @bcye We closed it because of too many people not knowing C#
    If you know C# write me an email:

    While this not something i need i certainly admire there is certainly a market for "Tindev".
  • 0
    I really hope this concept takes off. Would love to have something like this popular

    I feel the idea guys with little to no coding skills will join first. Getting the developers to join will be extremely hard. I think you may need to find some good angle there

    I don't know if you guys really intend to do this as open source as claimed in the opening post, personally I see zero value in making something like this open source
  • 1
    Another suggestion: don't brand it around devs. Most people there won't be devs anyway. Brand it as a collab platform for building a team, or connecting ideas with builders.

    That way you could attract all kinds of high energy people. Say, a group of hippies wanting to build a food startup etc.

    I want to be part of this. Count me in, if you need an iOS developer.
  • 0
    Great idea, i always wounder i there is another developer next door passing by while our souls be connected through nodes even though we dont know it till suddenly this apps goes live and boom we meet and say Hello World!!!
    Im totally in ffs.
  • 1
    I would develop this. I already have two dating apps under my belt. Lets be extra gay though, and use react native, for flutter.io. 100% genuine though. XD
  • 0
    Has anybody actually started working on this?
    If not then let's start!
  • 0
    @Aeternum since you are the most recent comment by far, should we start building it? I didn't really get what you meant with react native and flutter but I would like to do it in flutter
  • 0
    I imagine an interfaceless service. no swiping, no scrolling. just a REST API. a true dev will code up their own client. after all that's half the fun. and once you match someone, you have an ice breaker. let me see your code!
