Appirio ChalkTalk - Cloud + Crowd = CloudSpokes
Companies have always struggled on how to attract cutting edge development talent when they need it. CloudSpokes, a crowdsourcing development community and marketplace, matches companies who need cloud development work with a worldwide community of cloud experts. CloudSpokes lets businesses tap into skills and pay for results (vs. trying to figure out who should do the work). Developers self select what they want to work on, looking at their interest and skills and ability to produce a quality result. Because of the cloud, development can focus on results and change the paradigms of the past for enterprise class development.
