Hi my new friends!
My name is Mandy. I live and work in Chattanooga Tennessee. I guess you can say I am a woman with ideas but not very savvy with the technical end. I suppose if I took my time and carefully re-studied electronics and computing, I could build such wonderful things as all of you in the forum ... in maybe 50 years!!! LOL.
But I don't want to kill my ideas just because I fumble with electronics. So, I had this crazy idea to simply hire someone(s) to work with me on a project or two. Typically, when you are rich or getting seed money from a venture capitalist, this is an easy answer. But I work for a living and I just want to see an idea or two take flight.
What would be the proper term for someone Woz-like (Steve Wozniak -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? Forgive me for asking base-level questions. If anyone can offer any advise and poit me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it.
It should be said, I would prefer to work with someone in the United States, if possible.
Thank you in advance.
