If you can think of reasons for writing code for free other than philanthropy, equity or learning, I'd love to hear it, and how it worked out for you.On Sun, Jan 20, 2013 at 9:18 AM, Gloria W <[address removed]> wrote:
Developers should not do free work unless...
I think it better to simply say that one shouldn't do work with the expectation of some compensation without a specific prior agreement as to the what, when, and how much. There are plenty of reasonable situations where one might _not_ expect compensation,
+1 for reading fine print and paying attention. Ask for changes to the fine print, or avoid the work altogether, if it doesn't sit well with you.and think it's perhaps a bit presumptuous to tell others how to make that choice. The takeaway should be a reminder to read (and/or write) the fine print, and keep in mind that you _are_ making a choice, don't let it be made for you by not paying attention.
