Python is a great choice for organizations that want to thrive on the current market needs and ride the wave of
fast development. There are numerous reasons why developers love using this language:
It is highly readable because it is dynamically typed and mandates indentation
It has numerous libraries which makes it easily accessible to developers
It is a scalable language which makes it easy to handle tasks of all sizes
It is used to create prototypes and minimum viable products in a very short time
According to StackOverflow, Python is one of the most loved programming languages among developers. Thanks
to its versatility, this language can easily address any challenge that could affect an organization’s solutions in the
long run.

Hiring Python developers from GitHub
GitHub is one of the world’s largest code hosts, with close to 31 million developers. A developer’s GitHub
profile gives you a wealth of information.
Sourcing Python developer talent
Tech communities are full of potential hires waiting to be discovered. Here are 2 such communities from where
you can source talent for free.
08
Before you start shortlisting profiles on
GitHub, make sure that the Python
developer is open to recruiters approaching
him with jobs. Once this is sorted, follow
these steps to find the best talent on GitHub:
The first step is to create a profile on GitHub
Once the profile is created, run a search
using 3 parameters
By default, GitHub shows results for the list
of repositories. You can change this to users
by choosing it from the left hand side menu.
You now have a list of developers you can
reach out to.
Here are a few things to remember before
you connect with potential Python
developers.
Check their repositories to familiarize
yourself with their work. This would be
mutually beneficial as you can filter out
candidates who you think will not fit into
the job role on offer.
Cross-reference their profiles on either
Linkedin or Twitter to be doubly sure if
they would be a perfect fit or not.
Don’t judge profiles on how active or
complete they are. Sometimes developers
do not tend to share code publicly for
security reasons. Also, not having a great
social following is not an indication of how
good their tech skills are.
For more info, download our in-depth
e-book on hiring GitHub developers.

Hiring developers from StackOverflow
StackOverflow is a Q&A site for professional and enthusiast programmers. Just like GitHub,
StackOverflow is also a great platform to hire amazing Python talent.
10
The process of shortlisting Python developer profiles is similar to GitHub. However, here are a few things to
remember before connecting with your first Python developer via StackOverflow:
StackOverflow is more of a Q&A site where developers post and answer technical
questions. You would need to look at candidates addressing such specific
questions to see if they fit your requirements.
Developers are segregated based on their user badges and reputation scores.
An ideal candidate ranks high for both.
Every question which is posted has tags associated with it. You can use these tags
to find users who fit the bill.
Some other places to find great developer talent include HackerEarth, Reddit, Kaggle, etc.

  • 8. Hiring Python developers from GitHub GitHub is one of the world’s largest code hosts, with close to 31 million developers. A developer’s GitHub profile gives you a wealth of information. Sourcing Python developer talent Tech communities are full of potential hires waiting to be discovered. Here are 2 such communities from where you can source talent for free. 08
  • 9. Before you start shortlisting profiles on GitHub, make sure that the Python developer is open to recruiters approaching him with jobs. Once this is sorted, follow these steps to find the best talent on GitHub: The first step is to create a profile on GitHub Once the profile is created, run a search using 3 parameters By default, GitHub shows results for the list of repositories. You can change this to users by choosing it from the left hand side menu. You now have a list of developers you can reach out to. Here are a few things to remember before you connect with potential Python developers. Check their repositories to familiarize yourself with their work. This would be mutually beneficial as you can filter out candidates who you think will not fit into the job role on offer. Cross-reference their profiles on either Linkedin or Twitter to be doubly sure if they would be a perfect fit or not. Don’t judge profiles on how active or complete they are. Sometimes developers do not tend to share code publicly for security reasons. Also, not having a great social following is not an indication of how good their tech skills are.

An ideal candidate ranks high for both. Every question which is posted has tags associated with it. You can use these tags to find users who fit the bill. Some other places to find great developer talent include HackerEarth, Reddit, Kaggle, etc. 11
