Software consultants & freelancers in NYC: Can I buy you a beer?

From: user 1.
Sent on: Thursday, July 29, 2010 7:25 PM
Hello.

My name is Matt Miller and I just moved to NYC in March. Before moving
here,?I was the lead developer for a small non-profit organization and
now I'm?currently working as a developer in a short term contract
position at a bank. My contract will be ending soon, so I'm exploring
my options for employment afte that.

Since I am most motivated on projects where I can get excited about
how the code I'm writing helps users, I'm not inclined to take another
corporate job. The payoff for the code I write is too abstract, and
there are too few users. Thus, I'm weighing two options: looking for a
position in a smaller, software-focused company, or consulting and
free-lance work.

Here's where you come in. I don't feel I know enough about consulting
and freelancing to make a wise decision. If you are a successful
freelancer or software consultant in or near NYC, I'd love the
opportunity to talk with you about your experiences. If you'd like to
get together over a beer or coffee and share war stories, please
contact me.

I'm generally available in Manhattan or Brooklyn on weekdays after
6:45, or anywhere the trains go on Saturday and Sunday morning.

For a little more background on me, see

(If you're a small, software-focused company looking for a Python,
HTML, Javascript, or Flex dev, I'd love to talk to you too. One of the
biggest benefits I see in working for you would be the business
incentive to refine the code and craft the user experience.)


Thanks,
Matt Miller
