Welcome to Codosaur.us, home of Codosaurus, LLC! You've probably got a lot of questions, so let's dive right in. Here are the most common FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions):What services do you offer?
Mainly I do custom software development, and occasionally some training. I'll also help out fellow geeks as a subcontractor, programming pair, etc. If there's anything else likely you want, just ask me.What kind of software?
Mainly web applications, especially the back end, but I can do other things too. I've done lots of other server and command-line apps, some front-end web work, a bit of desktop GUI work, and have started dabbling in mobile.What technologies do you do?
I was trying to avoid making the non-geeks' eyes glaze over, but if you really want the mind-numbing details, see the Technologies section.What do you train people on?
I am only available very part time (a few hours a week), as I have a full-time contract, with a commute. That is expected to last until early March 2014, so feel free to ping me shortly before then about upcoming availability.What are you looking for?
Mainly, Ruby on Rails contracts I can do from home. However, I'll also consider other technologies, temporary employment, a reasonable commute (from Fairfax City), or even a short gig (up to about a month) away from home on per-diem. I am not open to longer contracts on the road, "permanent" employment, or relocation. (Well, maybe for Apple or Google or something of that caliber....)What do you charge?
Since my free time is currently scarce, I ask $100 per hour on W2 or $120/hr on 1099. (Yes, there's some wiggle room... in both directions, based mainly on length and how interesting, fun, and useful I think it will be, or not.) Once my current contract is over, those will come down a little. I'm also willing to work on a fixed-price project basis, if the work is very well understood, but it generally means a much higher estimated net rate, and far less flexibility for both of us.Is there anything else I should know?
Of course, you probably have a lot more questions! Just ask!
