Lorious is an online marketplace and community for developers, hackers and non-techies to get technical advice. We connect people who have development and tech challenges, ranging from product development to specific SQL queries, with experienced developers and technicians who can help them. Expert techies create profiles that display their credentials and an hourly rate. Users can review these profiles and schedule an appointment, committing to pay the hourly rate. Appointments can be as long as needed. Though we collect credit card details to reserve the appointment, payment is only transferred once it is confirmed the expert was helpful to the user.
