TPDP Episode #23: Being A Freelance Developer Contractor Or Consultant

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.

Native To Hybrid And Back Again

I was recently attending NativeScript Developer Day 2017 in New York City, which is Telerik’s very own NativeScript conference.

This was a fantastic conference where I was not only a participant, but also a speaker at the event. At this event I had given a fresh presentation titled, Native to Hybrid and Back Again, where I had discussed my own personal experiences when it came to mobile application development.

TPDP Episode #12: Getting the Developer Help You Need, Online

I am pleased to announce that the latest episode of The Polyglot Developer Podcast has been released to popular podcasting networks such as, but not limited to, iTunes and Pocket Casts. In this episode titled, Getting the Help You Need on Stack Overflow, Blogs, and Forum Boards, I revisit something I had discussed on this blog a few years back. The subject is on getting developer help, online.

Both the podcast episode and blog post were inspired by a common set of questions that I would receive in the comments section of the blog. The common set of questions lack important information required to give a quality response.

NativeScript For The Angular Developer

After months of receiving requests, I am finally pleased to announce that my course, NativeScript for the Angular Developer, is now available on Udemy. This Angular and NativeScript course is similar to the previous course I released titled, NativeScript 101, with the exception that this time we’re using Angular instead of vanilla JavaScript. If you’re unfamiliar with NativeScript, it is a cross platform framework for developing native mobile applications. There needs to be emphasis on the native part because you’re not building hybrid web applications, you’re building native mobile applications.

So what can you hope to accomplish in this particular course?
