Monthly Meeting - December/2013

  • Dec 19, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • AutoTrack

December's topic will be: Freelancing.

This month, Shawn McCool will be telling us the story of his freelance business.

19:00: Welcome Drinks 
19:30 - 20:30: "Freelancing: How to Fail" 
20:30 - 20:45: Raffle 
20:45: Social, drinks and food.

Speaker: Shawn McCool
Shawn has been developing for the web professionally for over 15 years. Most of his job is planning and developing web sites. But, he is always working on squeezing in game development.

In June of 2011 Shawn moved from Nashville, TN to Utrecht in the Netherlands. He works from home (sometimes cafes) and is actively studying Dutch.

Talk: "Freelancing: How To Fail"
After over a decade of full-time software development, Shawn (with business partner, Justin) decided to put his money where his mouth was and work for himself. A year later, it looked like it was time to give up. This talk is about the problems that almost caused the business to fail and how they were overcome to create a healthy business.

We got some awesome stuff to give away this month, so make sure you attend another awesome meetup!

    Great talk! Really liked the discussion and questions afterwards as well! As I mentioned on the way out of Autotrack: the way you brought your experience instead of "this is the way it works" really worked!
