I have an idea for a website -- maybe it's been done before ? If so, I'd love to see.
I'm a developer, and would love to use my skills to build something, but I just don't know what. I'm always keen to meet other devs and chat about startups and building stuff, but it's not always easy to find people who have the same interests or passions.
Therefore, I want to see if I can do something about it:
Basically the idea would be a website where you can sign up, either as a developer, designer, freelancer, marketer (whatever), and you fill in your interests, skills, ideas, target idea/concept niche, etc.
You would then be able to search a database of other people and you could filter people by your same interests, tech knowledge and preferred stack, passions, etc etc.
The premise being that you would be connected with like-minded people and therefore be able to bounce ideas around based on your chosen niche, category, passion etc. This could be integrated with all sorts of tools like slack for chat, trello for task lists, etc etc.
You could then go on to join forces and build your startup.
Does anything like this exist, if not, is it relevant? And if it is relevant, do you have any ideas to flesh this out more?
