[contract] Looking for NodeJS Full Stack Freelancer - Fun and Challenging Project

Hi All,

Going to be sending some updates about the group in the next week or so. I got a little behind the curve, so we won't have a January meeting, but I'm working on at least one February meeting and we've already got the "third Wednesday" meeting speaker confirmed. As I occasionally send out jobs with the [JOB] subject prefix so you can kill them with mail rules if uninterested, I just got told about what looks like an interesting node.js contract gig (I've done no due diligence, so contractor beware!)

When I ask people, on balance they like to get these occasional emails as it's the chance to get jobs/contracts working with node which is something some members are still looking for. I don't charge or get fees in any way, it's just FYI and you should absolutely add a [contract] subject line mail rule if you don't want to see these.

All that said, if you're horribly offended, reply and let me know. If I get a big negative response I'll stop these. Equally if you like getting them feel free to respond and let me know so I get both sides of the argument.
