GitHub can be a powerful tool for sourcing software engineering talent. For the uninitiated, GitHub is a software project hosting service on which software engineers create a profile, host their code, or contribute to other projects. GitHub profiles often include an email address, twitter handle, and/or link to a personal website. Due to this, and as previously posted on SourceCon, even a simple site: search on GitHub’s domain produces some serious results. However, some of the best profiles simply have no contact information aside from a (hopefully) real name and a GitHub username.
