I'm trying to bulletproof a contract for some freelance work. However, I can't seem to find any template that includes a clause on penalising a client for any delay they may cause to the project i.e. takes unreasonably long time to respond to clarifications, grant necessary access, etc.
How should this clause look under the contract and under which section? Any sample that you could share perhaps?
So I graduated last semester with a degree in business, it it wasn't until my senior year that I got into the world of data and coding. First it was R code and then SQL. My buddy told me about a job he got for a company in coding and he has very little coding experience but very high level math skills.
I applied and during the phone interview they told me that coding answers need some work but are still interested in hiring me if I can get my skill up a bit.
I bought a Java Text book and the online question package. I am also looking at Ruby through some apps on my phone because I see that it's a lot easier and should teach me the basic blocks quicker.
To shorten this long story, I am running off to Greece for three months with my wife to visit her family and I want to take this break to really bunker down and work on my coding skills.
Any recommendations on what to focus on (the company has their own coding program but they want people who already understand let OOP concepts) if things don't work out with this company I would like to have a backup goal.
What is the demand in right now? What should I be focusing on?
According to TIOBE website (https://www.tiobe.com/tiobe-index/) the big five are now Java, C, C++, Python and C#. Concerning "learning OOP by doing" C# is in my view a good choice (but I might be biased a bit...) as it is easier to learn (even with a free Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition, of with a free SharpDevelop environment), than the other 4 ... But it depends on the preference at the company that you mentioned (perhaps it is doable just to ask them which programming languages they use ? ...) Any way, I think there are many opportunities for C# developers, so it is not a waste of time to learn OOP using C# as you have 2 targets at once: OOP + 1 modern language from the "big five"
Good luck with your study ...
What would you include on a list of “If all these things happened in my professional life in IT, just once, I could die happy”?
• The client approved my proposal without any changes.
• A meeting ended 20 minutes early.
• I built my own nerd cave.
• The project plan was fully documented. And they didn't add a single thing.
What would you add?
I'm going to collect these and create a (fun I hope) short article. I won't be quoting anybody, just using the wish list items. So please tell me what should be included!
I've been briefed to "jazz up" this web site. I can handle the structural and ergonomic work, but I'll need some help with the general aesthetics, e.g. I think the plain white background is a worse turn-off than an ice-cold shower. The repeated content of the sliding banner I will take care of with actual photos of the business in various common acts that are part of the operation, and stuff like "Quick Links" at the bottom of the page? I can't even!
Some free suggestions are welcome, but it could easily become a gig for you if I like your initial assessment. My client will have to like your estimate though
Yes, and the half page wide "Free Quote" button in that same mustard. At least he has asked for more black and red, and the logo is black and white and that mustard, so my new black and white additions will match that, and the red add some sparkel.
One reason is that it is completely overused and unoriginal.
As was the question.

If you can't read my code, try converting it here[^]
I do a lot of freelance work that often involves transferring large files that don't compress well or at all really. Security and speed are of most importance. I'm somewhat tech savvy, but I'm by no means a full stack developer. Anyone else here have any success transferring a lot of files with few issues? Free or paid solutions will work, but nothing exorbitantly expensive please.
I just found this really nice software, but I am missing one feature. When i hit the "clock"-button next to the "Spent"-column, the time in the "Spent"-column starts ticking. I can also see that I can right click a lin, go to "Other task attributes" and click "Add time to task log time". In this window I can put a check mark in the "Also add time to task's time spent", and if I then add a negative amount of time, the hours spent will decrease.
But I don't find this to be a good way to edit the time. Let's say that I with an accident started the timer for wrong task. I would then like to go into that task, get an overview of every time I have started/stopped the timer, and then select the wrongly added amount of time, and delete it.
The answer is yes, anything is possible when you can write code. But that's the only answer we can give you since you didn't even mention what program you are using. Not sure what you were really looking for.
There are only 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don't.
You haven't had a reply in 10 months, probably because it is the wrong forum and because you don't state what language you are using. On the assumption that you are looking for a Regular Expression, you could try \d*(000|250|500|750)$
Hello, this is my first post. I came here for advice regarding casual contract work for programmers.
I'm a recent graduate, and I took on a casual contract with an organisation as the sole developer to build a non-commercial Java application and which would pay a set amount at the completion of the project. Because of the nature of software development work - shifting requirements, debugging and ongoing maintenance, etc. - I was a little worried about the nature of the contract, but I knew the people fairly well and trusted them to be fair, and I really needed the work!
Well, requirements did continue to shift, and new things added to the project, and the time-frame kept expanding, and I was eventually paid less and less per hour until in the end it was barely worth my time (and I didn't know how to say no to them!).
My question is: has any one else had experience with this kind of contract, and what was your experience like? How did you handle the contractual relationship when requirements continued to be added and changed? Was I completely idiotic to take on a contract with these conditions for this kind of work?
Thanks very much!
