Are their any members of the community that do contract development work? We have a working prototype of a data collection system, we have a few bugs and I know that the code we are running on our boron 2g/3g & LTE systems is not optimised even a fraction of what it could be. I was wondering are there any community members that do contract development as a side gig.
On a separate note, how cool would a contract development marketplace linked to this forum be? Recently within AWS we utilised their inhouse contracting marketplace called IQ, where you can post up a contract job and registered users can bid for the contract. Imagine if we had something like this for particle, where you could look into a users posting history, see how active they are in the community and see what type of issues they have been helping people with. Personally I know that I would feel much more comfortable searching within this community for some contract development help then on a site like fivver or upwork. A marketplace like this could also encourage more users to get involved in helping the community, ultimately lowering the, already low, barrier to rapid prototyping and product development that particle offers.
In no way am I saying that the community needs more of an incentive to be more active. The community here is great, I am always amazed at how quick some of the regular posters are able to find answers for problems that members like myself have encountered.
