How to source on the lesser known sites!!Assembla!!

Assembla is a web-based version control and source code management SaaS provider for enterprise that was founded in 2005.It can also be a great place to source. However most recruiters don’t think to source there because they are not sure how. Simply reach into your bag of tricks and pull out an old tried and true tool, a simple xray search with some extras, and a whole lot of website searching


So to source within Assembla  you simply need to use a skill known as xraying, like the one below.


site:** security


Now the key here is too look for the blogs which means if you want you can use* security



The reason I used the first one in this example is because sometimes there are other nuggets available beyond the blogs.


If you run the strings above in google you will get the results below.


Now of course this is generic so simply add what you are searching for to the string.

Now once you open up the url you will see a blog post or whatever. Simple click on the link of the poster, or someone who commented and this will take you to more info and simply put on your detective hat and away you go.

Until next week, may the source be with you!
