The part that was most amusing to me was that, after all this, he asked
for resumes to prove qualifications, and said he'd contact people to
interview them. Ha!

There are some old sayings that come to mind when I read this 'ad':

1. "A workman is worthy of his hire."

2. "You get what you pay for."

If anyone actually offers to work free for this guy, I'd add one more:

"There's a sucker born every minute."

When I saw the topic I thought someone was looking for a project
to join. Imagine my disappointment.

Clients of mine have occasionally brought in summer interns for rock
bottom wages. The pay was damn close to nothing. On occasion, we have
offered starbucks wages, because that was what we had left in the
budget. Even $16 an hour for a ten week gig only brings you to $6400 -
chump change for industry, and sometimes what we have left to offer.

Will you get the best for this kind of money? Sometimes, if the
experience is good and the project interesting. Other times, you need
to offer real money to get good people.

These are essentially 10 week job interviews. They do not pay that
well, because we expect to burn a lot of our own developer hours keeping
the interns busy, and looking over what they do.

That said, real negotiating starts somewhere near the end of the gig, if
we want them back. After all, the primary goal of a student must be to
finish the degree and learn the material, not a summer job. On exit,
though, priorities change, and so does what we need to pay to get them.

Thank you for everyone's input.

Let me make this clear. There is a great concept that I've came up
with, but I can't afford to pay full salary for programmer to build
this. At the same time, I do hope to find the right people to work
with and have a passion for design & coding. Doesn't have to be
experience but I don't wanna teach everything from scratch either.

When I first started to work in this field, I work for a place that
without pay, just free lunch that's it. But with this on my resume,
that's how my career starts.

Then offer some equity. You don't want newbie programmers
and experienced professionals need compensation. If you
cannot pay money, then offer a piece of the action.

Oh, but there are just *so* *many* of these around at any one time.

How can the programmer judge which are likely to succeed and which are
therefore worth working on?

Well, the average programmer is not that well up in business expertise, so
is well advised to look at decisions made by those who are. This means that
the "great concepts" that are more likely to succeed, and thus a better bet
to work for, are going to be the ones that have a plausible business plan
which has been backed by professionals, ie a bank loan or venture capital.

So, in simple terms, a "great concept" that might actually be going
somewhere is one where the programmer gets paid.

If the OP is very serious about his "great concept" and
simply cannot afford to compensate programmers, then a
reasonable alternative is to create an open source project
where programmers can donate their efforts. The OP can
control the direction of the development.

sourceforge.net comes leaping to mind as a possible
venue for hosting the project.
