1) Supply tech, challenge & budget
2) Get 3 hand picked experts
3) Choose, book & jump on video call
Bryan Hughes: Perhaps the most valuable result is that I now know that my project's overall re-design has been vetted by a professional.
Peter Lyons I like helping entrepreneurs & programmers. This gives me a way to do both.
David Crawford: I got answers much faster than I could on my own. I learned a lot and got my money's worth.
Alexandru Vladutu: Besides the awesome feeling you have helping someone (maybe you've experienced helping someone on stackoverflow so you know how it's like), video talk is definitely more productive. You can share code / tips & tricks and answer new questions along the way.
Jonathon Kresner: I started airpair to help developers.
I've ALWAYS loved coding product. When things run smooth & you're knocking out screens, life is grand. But often teams lose their way. Products get delayed and instead of knowing if your market assumptions are right, you're stuck battling technology. I know because I was there in both of my first startups. I needed access to mobile experts and db gurus, even though I consider myself a strong engineer.
airpair is for companies that want to get back on track, or better, start off on the right foot by periodically getting expert help to deliver faster.
