What do you hope to get out of Chicago Freelancer's Happy Hours?

Happiness and a sense of completeness. I would also like to find out a bit more about what types of dev practice groups/opportunities exist in Chicago.

What is your specialty that allows you to freelance?

No answer yet

How long have you been freelancing for?

My self-development practice started in grad school, where when I wasn't trying to discover the low-temperature properties of frustrated systems, I attended the Temple of the Universe for meditation and community. More recently I worked in the insurance industry mainly with SQL and C#, to optimize the happiness of our clients. I still consider myself a novice when it comes to dev practice.

Favorite way to get work, and what's your favorite poison (bvg)?

I prefer simplicity: text editors, command-line tools, and vodka tonics... Though the last does interfere with my spiritual growth.


I have been interested in development for a long time and this group seems to combine the two aspects of this Practice that I appreciate the most, self-development and Happiness. It's sad we have to confine our happiness to an hourly ritual though.
