      One possible avenue is to hire someone to do that.

      Perhaps you know someone who can’t or won’t accept the job, but would be available for a bit of highly-paid consulting — just enough hours to help you hire the right person?

        Thanks for the reply, yes we have considered this, and most likely will be going forward with this. It makes sense, as someone with ~4 years of exp, it will be hard to gauge someone twice my experience.

        I’ll be continuing my work on https://beta.discoverdev.io

        Been running https://discoverdev.io for over an year now, with my own homegrown “static site generator”. As I wanted more features, found out that implementing them for scratch was a pain and affected my iteration speed. So moved it to GatsbyJS.

        On the down side this has caused me to move from pure HTML/CSS to a ReactJS based frontend, but even then it has turned out to be faster IMHO (thanks to code splitting and pre-fetching from gatsby).

        Fun note: Over the last year or so I’ve managed to curate about 3500+ links and get over 5000 subscribers :) Wonder if there is some way to automate the link curation though ;)

          Main stuff - working on my startup (in stealth mode) - learning some react, playing with firebase.

          Other than that, continuing to work on my side project : https://discoverdev.io : A daily curated list of engineering blog posts! This was simply to get myself acquainted with web dev - a purely static site hosted on netlify! (I use jinja2 and python to generate the website).

          Btw, my first post on lobste.rs! Hi everybody :)

            working on my startup (in stealth mode)

            Usually, “stealth mode” is kinda a red flag outside of a few niches. You should talk about what you’re working on–least of all because you might find out somebody is already doing it.

            Don’t spam it here though–there is https://barnacl.es/ for good feedback. :)

            1. 1

              Before going stealth mode, assess whether your startup is doing something patentable or that requires enormous labor/cost to build. These justify stealth mode. If not, then the advice of startup factories such as Y Combinator (eg Slack, Uber) is to be open and focus on execution.

              Openness gets more people exposed to your ideas which provides feedback you use to improve your offering with rapid iterations. You’ve gone so far so fast that, by the time they want to copy you, the competition will be way behind you in terms of features, market share, and branding. The result is called the First Mover Advantage. About every billion dollar firm I know of started by racing to be the First Mover grabbing all the marketshare.
