How to build a developer community from scratch

document Cloud Labor, Distributed Knowledge
Summary
Whether you’re a company in need of development work, or someone with an open source project that needs contributions, leveraging a developer community can seem like a simple and cost-effective solution.

The promise of having hundreds or even thousands of independent, talented workers solving your development problems around the clock appears to be a dream come true.

Unfortunately it doesn’t work that easily. You can’t add the word “developer” to your website and expect hundreds of developers to suddenly support your initiatives and grow organically.
Description
If you’re still convinced that building a developer community is what you really want to do, it is a must to live out your mission statement. In other words, if you’re a crowdsourcing community, crowdsource your marketing materials. If you’re into Azure, don’t forget to build your website with it.
