We live in an era where developers are rock stars. I don’t like that expression as much as you, but let’s be honest, the supply and demand right now are insanely good for us, developers, which means that there is no better time than today to start your freelance career. Still, starting a business is not easy, and truth to be told, it’s not for everyone. Based on my successes and my failures, let me guide you through the 10 steps to become your own boss. Not sure if you wanna go rogue? This talk will help you understand all the groundwork needed to think about it as much as to start your new journey, but shh, don’t tell your boss you’ll attend this talk!
