[Multi-part question with similar introduction because I thought the questions would be more useful separately.]
I'm currently a one-man dev team with what I believe is a killer idea. I've got a varied set of skills, but I know that I'm going to need some superhero developers to make my project happen. The issue I've had here is that, like many other developers, I work a pretty demanding day-job. Outside of work (which I don't think would appreciate me recruiting for a side project), I don't know quite how to get people interested or involved in my project. I'm fairly young, and don't necessarily have a network of developer contacts.
How do I build a team whose skills and involvement I can trust?
I'm generally a pretty trusting person, but I'm wondering how I can take people I have no experience with and gauge them enough to know whether they would make a good addition to the team.
What is the best way to build / gauge a relationship from scratch with the purpose of building a great project team?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give!
