Freelance Best Practices/KC Job Market Trends For Front-End Developers

It's an exciting time to be a front-end developer.

We'll look at the pros and cons of each and what the future holds.
 
The Joys of Freelancing or How to Drive Yourself to Drink in 3 Easy Steps

    Lots of great tips and things to think about for freelancing, as well as an overview of where people more in the know than I am think the tech job market is heading in KC.

    I thought it was a very useful presentation. I wish it would've been longer as the topic really applied to what I'm doing now.

    I feel like a lot of good knowledge was provided on having your own small to larger free lance company... This is great info for anyone who has not experienced any of this type of items.
