As some of you may be aware I have recently accepted a new position as senior developer at RedKite technologies. They are a consulting firm specializing at implementation and custom development of Salesforce, mostly for financial organizations (but not exclusively). While I am extremely excited for this new opportunity to work with an awesome team and continue to grow my skills, it does mean that I will no longer be able to do freelance work (it could be taken as a conflict of interests kind of thing, you understand). So as of now, I am sorry but I have to decline any offers for freelance work, at least until the smoke clears and some details are figured out.
The good news is, that if you would like to leverage my skills and those of some other very talented developers working with me, you can! RedKite is happy to evaluate any Salesforce project and if you ask you may be able to get me tasked on your project. RedKite has an excellent track record, is growing very rapidly and you are sure to be happy with the results of any project you engage us on. I wouldn’t be working there if it wasn’t comprised of some of the most talented and passionate people in the industry. I am also still available to answer questions, give advice, etc I just don’t think I can accept money or undertake entire projects on the side at this point. Thanks for understanding, and I hope we can still do business, if perhaps through a slightly more official channel 😛
Due to some recent financial challenges, I have decided to throw my hat in the ring as a freelance developer. Simple flat rates, and no BS. I won’t take jobs I don’t think I can do, and I work fast. Below are the rates (may be negotiable). Right now I’m looking for mostly simple projects, not more than maybe 10 hours at a throw, but I’m certainly open to talking about other opportunities.
Coldfusion development: $25.00
Apex/Visualforce development: $35.00
Web Dev (JS, CSS, HTML): $20.00
Salesforce Setup/Admin: $30.00

No man is an island, and no programmer knows everything. In fact this one barely knows anything. However, the internet is an awesome place, and help is always right around the corner. I have recently been debugging some performance issues with a force.com application that makes fairly heavy use of jQuery. Becuase of the fairly niche nature of the technologies involved I didn’t really know where to turn at first when I was stuck. It was too much jQuery for the force.com forums, and too much force.com for jQuery forums. Then I remembered a man whom I’ve crossed paths with before and has proven himself to be quite skilled in both arenas. I of course am talking about Jason Veneable from over at the http://www.tehnrd.com/ blog
I reached out to him personally and asked if he might be willing to help me do a little bit of debugging. Despite a bit of a rocky first introductions a while back, he was most gracious and not only offered to look at my code but did some active debugging for me in my Sandbox. He helped resolve a few issues and got me on the right track to solve the rest. The man is a class act and just goes to show that the internet isn’t just full of cat pictures and people in various states of undress. Point being don’t be afraid to reach out to your fellow developers. We are all a community here and we can all learn from each other. Nobody starts out a programing god, and no programming god knows everything. I just wanted to take a moment to give thanks, and let the public (well anyone who reads my dumb blog anyway) know that there are quality people out there.
