Question: For non-tech founders, what are your thoughts about outsourcing your product development? What are the challenges you faced and would you recommend it to a first time entrepreneur?

Question: I have an idea for an app that I'd like to work with a developer on building. My goal is to have something very simple, but then as the budget and possibilities reveal themselves, expand the capabilities of the app. So, I don't want the first iteration to have all the bells and whistles, more conceptual.
