    If you are looking for freelancers, have you tried scriptlance or elance.com?

    That's a little bit of an oxymoron - "Good Programmers - Cheap"

    Students, send an email in to your local university saying you got a job opening for a programmer. Because they're students, they'll work cheap and you can usually find really talented people. My uni are always forwarding emails like this to me and my coursemates.

    For project based: odesk, guru.com, elance.

    But for more complex stuff "cheap programmers" is not what you want to do.

    This is a great fucking idea. I don't know why I haven't thought about it yet. Although, as a uni student myself, I don't think I would charge less. I already get freelance work from forums, etc. so there's no reason for me to charge less just because it's from a different avenue.

    There's your problem right there. Why would good programmers work for very little compensation?

    If you want good programmers you have to pay.

    If you want cheap programmers then expect bad programmers unless you happen to get very lucky.
