Where do I find software projects?
I've started software outsourcing and have few projects to work on. My question in general where do people find new software projects...
Well, I guess I didn't formed my question right first time.
We are developers and we are looking for projects. The question is where to find them.
Sites like elance, freelancer and so on have ridiculously low bits and quality of work is very poor, most of the people are individuals who just want a simple 2 page web site or similar. Well there are some good once, but rear.
If Craigslist.org is available in your country, you can check the software section out because some companies post there as well! Besides, that I think the answer below is right; odesk, freelance and guru are quite helpful!
Not sure I understand the question. Are you looking to do remote software development or are you looking to outsource projects?
The easy answer to either of those questions could be as simple as ODesk.com, Freelancer.com, Guru.com etc. All these places will allow you to either find freelancers, or search for freelance projects.
Successfully freelancing is as much about prospecting for projects as it is about building relationships. If you are looking to do some remote development, start by talking to the people you've done development for in the past and see if they have any work or projects you can handle remotely. If you have development work that needs to be outsourced, talk to developers you've worked with in the past and see if they want some side work, or if they know other developers that freelance. If all your networking avenues are at their end, start networking more by going to local developer meetups and events, or as a last resort turn to the internet resources I mentioned above.
