Submitted Dec 20, 2012

To inculcate a sense of “I can do” attitude to developers and designers and learn to command respect from client and be a well paid awesome freelancer or consultant.


All developers and designers, even if they work at a company on a 9-5 job, do some sort of freelancing or consulting on the side. I’ve come across lots of good developers, designers and even some beginners asking how to stand out of the crowd and be an awesome freelancer or consultant.

The talk will also include:

  • How to set a good price for your work.
  • How to get good paying clients.
  • How to stay relevant and be found by new clients.

I want to summarize and help budding and even accomplished developers and designers on the ways to make them stand out of the crowd and do better at what they love to do, and in return be paid well for their job.
