I've never done contract work, and I have no idea how much to charge. What would be a reasonable rate, whether hourly, flat, or per-project, for a C# programmer? I asked two people already, and they gave me wildly different answers, emphasizing that pay rates are more art than science, and are highly dependent on circumstances, nature of the project, requirements, deadlines, and such. With all this in mind, can you suggest some kind of "ballpark" estimate, or point me to a source where I could learn more? Google has not been particularly helpful in this respect.
