The Freelance Software Developer's workshop is for people who are new to freelancing, thinking about making the jump, or simply "freelance curious." In any case, if you're interested in going into business for yourself as a freelance software developer, this is for you!

This workshop is by geeks, for geeks — it's a full afternoon (and evening) of learning and activities covering:

  • Learn about the different types of freelancing, and figure out what makes the most sense for meeting your goals.

  • Calculate what your rates should be, and what your clients might be expecting to pay.

  • Step through the process of finding clients, learn geek friendly sales techniques, and find out how much a cup of coffee could be worth to you.

  • How to spend more time coding, and less time shuffling paper.

Aside from presentations, activities, networking, and one-on-one time, this package also includes:

  • A 30+ page handbook for freelance software developers, covering everything in the workshop and more.

  • Significant discounts on legal and business services from local companies in Portland.

  • Food and drinks (including free beer on tap).
