You want a free web developer, I want experience
December 5, 2010 3:50 AM

I am a student, I love to code and I aspire to work as a freelance software developer and programmer. I am currently looking to gain some experience as a freelancer, which is why I am offering to develop an application for you or your company completely for free.
Why you should "hire" me:
  • It's free.
  • There is no commitment.
  • If you have not worked with a softare developer before, this can be practice and a learning experience for you, not just for me.

Why you shouldn't "hire" me:
  • My inexperience could cause delays, bugs, security holes or simply a bad product. I would not recommend hiring an inexperienced developer to create software that your company needs quickly and that must be free of faults. While I will do my best to meet your needs, I am unable to make guarantees. If you need such guarantees, then it is well worth it to invest in the cost of an experienced developer.
  • One noticeable symptom of inexperience is that I have not yet learned how to estimate the time it will take to complete a project, so any dates I give will be fuzzy.
  • Although I am not charging for my work, that does not necessarily mean that it is truly free. If you rely on my software and it fails on you, this could be a cost to your business.
  • There may be maintenance or support costs in the future which I cannot promise to be available for.

Programming languages and technologies I am comfortable with: PHP, SQL, MySQL, Javascript, AJAX, DHTML, CSS, Java, C#

Throw a Mefi Mail my way if you would like to work with me.
