Some thoughts about how you as a freelancer basically are a business, and what that means.
This site is my "Glossy Brochure" for my freelance business.
I have 35+ years of experience as a software developer, with C++ as my primary language since 1996. Today I do most of my work in C++17 and C++20.
Current status: Recovering after 3 1/2 intense years as a "Principle software engineer" with a venture funded US tech startup. Planning to spend most of 2023 catching up on the latest in C++, distributed systems, big data, streams processing, learn Rust and to enjoy quality time with my open source projects (who have patiently waited for my return to humanity).
Some thoughts about finding good clients trough agencies like Toptal and Upstack, and the millions of Java developers in Asia coding for pennies.
