[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 keep my idea in the bag while telling developers about it?
- How do I ensure that my idea remains mine?
- Is this a realistic expectation in today's age?
- Are NDAs the way to go? Do they help or hinder the chances of success? Do they build trust or break it?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give!
