I am pleased to announce that the latest episode of The Polyglot Developer Podcast has been published to iTunes and all of the other popular podcasting networks! Being in the development game is tough and the competition for work is fierce. You can go down the route of working for a company as a full-time or part-time employee, or you can operate on your own.
In the 23rd episode of the show titled, Being a Freelance Developer Contractor or Consultant, I’m joined by Nolan Erck, professional freelance consultant and owner of South of Shasta Consulting in Sacramento, CA.
The topic of this episode is working for yourself as a freelance developer consultant or contractor. In this episode Nolan and I explore everything from finding work, negotiating your rate, and ultimately accomplishing a task and building your reputation as a freelance developer.
This episode, along with every other episode of the show, can be found on iTunes, Pocket Casts, and pretty much every other popular podcast network that scrapes the shows feed. However, if you’d prefer, you can listen to the show directly on this blog using the controls below:
If you have questions for Nolan in regards to being freelance or if you’d like to hire him to be a part of your next project, you can find him on Twitter at @southofshasta. If you have questions for me, you can always reach out to me on Twitter at @nraboy, keeping in mind that my Twitter handle is a representation of my name, not something else.
