The Programmers.se FAQ states that "Freelancing and business concerns" are on topic for this exchange.
As a developer involved in recruiting, I consider recruiting to be an critical 'business concern' for any programmer, manager, team leader, or individual programmer.
I ask because I found this closed question to be very relevant to my own situation (that is, I too have found it almost impossible to find really qualified devs).
I'd like to know how other teams, especially those of small outfits handle this problem.
There certainly ought to be somewhere where recruiting questions can be asked.
