Peer-programming is appealing to programmers because they often do work alone. The opportunity to work alongside another developer and learn/share is a selling point. Services that provide the opportunity to pair through screenshare make a lot of sense.
I started working on Hackhands. Hackhands is a service that connects programers with people who have programming issues. The service bills the user who needs help and pays the ‘teacher’ a dollar a minute.
I tried the service again yesterday and had a different experience. The person with the problem had a problem that was much larger. The person wanted to set up a parallax web interface to an existing webpage. The page had issues that couldn’t applied to a parallax layout. The problems scope was beyond a short meeting
These services are useful for users who are on the right track. Hackhands is perfect when users know something should work, but don’t know how to execute a specific part of their problem.
