How to find programmers

Inc is running an article that finally makes sense of internet hiring. The leadership at Pulse, the company named in the article, told it's programmers to start blogging. As a result they have started attracting attention from all corners. This certainly makes more sense than speed dating, code scraping, social ranking, etc... And of course it helps to have Inc do a story on your business.

First you are attracting people who are interested in the company and the work being done. Second you might be opening a dialog with the candidate before they are actually a candidate via blog comments. And finally, it likely is not going to cost you anything more than existing methods and it's certainly less than professional recruiting services.

Pulse get's a +1 from me.
