The Business of Web Development

In a round table format involving everyone present so that we can learn from each other... We'll discuss some of the following topics, starting with those most burning to those in attendance:

  • Different business structures for internet professionals: Solo/Freelance, Collaborative, Agency..., pros, cons, and issues to be aware of for each
  • Lessons learned from clients and best practices for managing clients and projects
  • Billing practices and Contracts
  • Finding clients
  • Managing small vs. large projects
  • Other suggestions? Send 'em to me!

6:00 PM Introductions, and a chance to tell us what you are looking for or ask a question of the group to draw on our collective experience

6:30 PM - 7:30 PM Presentation & discussion

7:30 - 7:45 Wrap up and final go-around

7:45 Meeting officially adjourned, though many members stick around to continue the discussion, collaborate with others, and follow up on connections made.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
