This session is intended to be a laid back discussion about the benefits and drawbacks of freelancing as a Drupaler. The main theme here is how the the individual actually represents a community, and clarifying the difference between working as a Drupaler in the freelance world and more 'generic' kinds of web-design related freelancing.
Topics include but are not limited to
- Pitching a project
- Legal paperwork & proposals
- Development vs. design & theming and time management
- How to deal with crazy people
- Q & A
A couple of sites built on a freelance contract will be shared, so we can pick at what's good and what's not as a group. This will also allow us to address the details in said topics such as work-flows, mockups, timelines, dealing different clients, different industries and establishing an identity as a freelancer depending on where, and more importantly who you are.
This is intended for everybody; people that are starting out, have been doing it for a while and those that have been doing it so long they can't remember life before Drupal.
