Things learned hiring developers (but can also apply to other positions)

- if you cant afford them, SERIOUSLY, don’t. even. try. it means affording a fuckup

- dont polish a turd. its sometimes easier to rewrite a codebase

- have a very, very, very long / detailed interview

- dont hire passive agressive devs, itll bite you

- split your projects into sections, so that oyu can profile each section and rate it before oyu go to the next

- DONT set it and forget it. unless they’re your cofounder, they’ll fuck you over
