Where can I find a programmer to help implement the Google Ads API?

Question was asked on Quora

Background: I’ve used the AdWords API since 2009 do research, build campaigns and generate reports.

Bad news: there are relatively few programmers available who have used the AdWords API extensively.

Good news is that you don’t a programmer who is an expert at the AdWords API because the programming constructs that the API uses are well known. For instance, the API uses OAuth for authentication which is very common. There are code libraries and examples in many programming languages. You can point any decent developer to and they should be able to figure things out.

There are some things that you should be aware of if you’re going to invest in custom programming for your business.
