Best way to get help coding a large code-base built with custom php framework?
I am now the bottleneck of the company as I can no longer keep up with the demand for new features. I need someone to help me code, as well as a complete review of the LAMP configuration and health, as I am not an expert in those but have set them up myself.
I wish to keep too many people from having access to the entire code-base as it embodies much of the company's structural capital.
Should I hire coders in-house (there would definitely be enough work for them), hire individual contractors for long-term commitments, or out-source to a large off-shore firm?
