Finding work as a freelance software developer

17 November 2015

Background I have been a contract developer for most of my life. The way it worked back home in South Africa was that you would typically work through “contracting houses” - big IT companies which focuses primarily on placing developers with their clients. This could be on a permanent, salaried basis but also many times on an hourly basis (which I preferred). In the case of the hourly basis you would typically log your hours on a time sheet which you would submit at the end of the month.
