How Much Should You Charge For A Website

If you work a 9-5 job programming job, you won't have to worry much about this question anytime soon. But if you're in the free-roaming world of freelancing, then this is one of the most important questions that you will get from people. And rightfully so. Putting a price on something virtual is difficult and confusing to many. And paying for it is even more confusing.

The Travelling Programmer

I'm a huge fan of the idea that I can take my code and go anywhere with it. On a plane, on a train, and even in the rain. Except that for now, it's mainly an idea. A very young idea. An idea that I'm still working the kinks out of. Because the kinks there are. But it's an important idea. Because while I do enjoy the potential that code has for helping society, I also want to explore this society and world myself and not through a 1920 x 1080 display, because that's too limiting to creativity.

Starting The Freelance Journey

Just recently I left my, what I assume to be, last desk job ever. After 10 long years and 30lbs of weight fluctuation between jobs, I've decided that I've had my fill and frankly programming for a company is nowhere near as complex or fulfilling as college professors make it out to be. Looking at you Mr. Jones. And so without any real prior knowledge or experience I have begun the freelance path in life, and so far, it's very...interesting. It's only been a few months and today I'm way better off than I was when I first started, but it's still unfamiliar territory for the most part and I have a long way to go. So today I thought I'd share a bit of that process with everyone to give a bet

The Pros And Cons Of Working Remotely
The Pros And Cons Of Working Remotely

Most jobs nowadays, still require you to get up early and get ready and to then spend a percentage of your life sitting inside of a vehicle driving to a point B. A few jobs however, have evolved beyond that, and can now be done from anywhere in the world. Thank you internet. For example, you can write from anywhere in the world. Editors are sitting in coffee shops as we speak writing that next big trending post. Many universities have begun to transition to remote educations. You can get an MBA from your bed in your pajamas right now, if you so wish. And of course, you can program from pretty much anywhere with an internet connection, and many time without an internet connection. And whi

Funemployment Day 1

Today is my first official day of being unemployment in the past 4 years, and so far, so good. For the first time in a while, I looked forward to waking up. Except rent is due today, and I don't have a job 0_o and I've only bought myself 30 more days of sleeping in a 4 wall inclosure. Other than that, fantastic. If you plan it well, unemployment doesn't have to leave a bad taste in your mouth. It's a time to finally stop and think about what the future holds. I would drag myself to work daily, like alot of other people every day and not worry about 2 or 3 years from now. I just worried about this weekends laundry and groceries, and this months rent. This is a good time to get that project

creating your own it crowd
creating your own it crowd

“Have you tried turning it off and on again?” Thus goes the punchline of one of Britain’s most entertaining and often surreal sitcoms of the 21st century, The IT Crowd. But while the zany antics of Moss, Roy and Jen may belong squarely in the realm of fiction (and rarely have much, if anything at all to do with IT) they do capture what it’s like to work in IT support in broad terms every now and then. There’s a whole lot more to IT support than asking people if they’ve tried rebooting their thin client (although you will likely do it at least once). If you have entrepreneurial ambitions you may come straight out the gate wanting to start your own IT crowd, delivering bespoke IT and communications systems to small businesses and making the world a better place one query at a time.
