Sourcing for developers


Recruiters use platform like github, linkedIn & Stackoverflow to source for developer

GitHub is the world’s largest social coding site, with close to 31 million developers. Simply put, it is a cloud-based platform for open source (OS) developers who use it to host and share code based on frameworks such as Ruby on Rails.


You can follow these steps to find the best developer talent through GitHub:


First, you must create a profile on GitHub. Set up your account with your company and personal information. After your profile is created, you can use the search bar for finding developers using 3 parameters, viz., language, location, and followers.

For example, if you wish to find someone who’s skilled in JavaScript, based in London, and with a follower count of greater than 20 people, your search will look like this:


github search


A follower count of 2-10 is considered good and anything between 26-75 is exceptional. Any developer with 75+ followers is considered super amazing. GitHub will come up with a list of repositories of developers that you can reach out to.

However, you must filter your search accordingly. After you run your search, GitHub will show you the results for repositories by default instead of users first. You need to amend that view by selecting users’ from the left hand side menu.




StackOverflow  is a Q&A site for enthusiast programmers and professionals and is a great platform to hire amazing developers.


stack overflow


The process of shortlisting profiles of developers is similar to GitHub. However, before connecting with developers via StackOverflow, here are a few things to remember:

StackOverflow is a Q&A site where developers post and answer technical questions. You must look out for candidates addressing specific questions to see if they fit your requirements.

Developers are segregated based on their user badges and reputation scores. An ideal candidate ranks high for both. Every question that is posted on StackOverflow has tags associated with it. You can use these tags to find developers who fit the bill.
