What would be the proper term for someone Woz-like (Steve Wozniak -[url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Wozniak/url]) to hire? Someone who works on an Arduino boards (specifically) and connect needed boards and things?Is the proper term engineer?
How would I be able to find and hire someone?
What's the usual going rate for work?
Know the scope of your're hiring for. Do you want them just to write the code? Should they create a wiring diagram that you can use to hook-up everything yourself? Should they create a fully functional prototype and ship it to you?Make sure you and the person you are hiring are on the same page when it comes to the requirements and deliverables.
Be reachable. Don't go dark for a month and come back expecting to pick up right where you left off.
MandyI'm a professional Firmware engineer with 20+ years or product development.I work for a company that does contract hardware and software development from firmware to the cloud.All I can tell you is you better research the heck out of this idea, a real product costs 100's of thousands of dollars to develop and more to make and more to market.Learn what youre doing before you go off and hire someone who will just spend all your money and waste your time
Interestingly so are quite a lot of the people who contribute to this forum
