What we're about

How's your business or side project coming along?

Come join us for a healthy discussion of a dimension of startups that the Startup Tabloids rarely cover: Building a web product business without VC interference.

Maybe you are consultant or freelancer like us, sick of looking for client work and taking client calls. You'd rather be your own client, and build a product you own, that can bring real freedom to your worklife. We call it FREERlancing: You are free to decide how to build out your idea, and product income can mean you are free from hourly billing.

This is a group dedicated to exploring and learning, cross-polinating development, business, and marketing concepts. Ideas are cheap; we value great execution.

Whether you are a Ruby on Rails coder, a python/Django hacker, or prefer Java or .NET, come and pick up some tips on the business side to move your project forward.

Or maybe you have business in the works already, and are in need of learning some programming tricks to get it going? Come and see what magic others are bringing to life on the web.

Or perhaps you are just someone savvy enough to see all the money being made with web applications and info products, and are interested in starting a journey to financial independence. Welcome, kindred nerd! Share this journey with us.
