Looking for insight on Java volunteers.

Hi there, I'm interested in developing a game app, and wanted to know how difficult it would be to find a Java volunteer to partner up with. This isn't an attempt to hire slave labor. Ideally, I would like to find someone who is maybe really new to Java or trying to shake off some rust that would like to do something fun on the side part time, and I can take care of the business end like licensing/distribution/marketing/etc. So my question is if there is a community that would like that opportunity, or would it be a waste of time to ask for a volunteer on the Jobs Offered page?

Thanks guys.

It's not a job, so Jobs Offered would not be appropriate. Someone looking for Java practice, or to beef up their resume with experience might be interested, however.

How much of a 'noob' is acceptable for you? Would you consider someone who has just passed their OCJP certification?
I agree. Here's the link:
