Well, I’m 24 years old, I have about 5 years of experience in
development, I program in c, c++, perl, php, python, java, .net, asp,
ruby, smalltalk, rails, etc.
By this time, I’m working in a great communications company in Argentina
(Iplan Networks), I’m a project leader, so I started to use ruby on
rails for my projects (in Argentina, most people doesn’t know what’s
ruby, and when you ask them about rails, they have no idea, so, it was
hard to sell ruby on rails to the company :P), I just earn U$S 8.3/hour,
but that’s a lot in Argentina.
I would love to work as a freelance programmer for any of you, and I can
even get cheaper (and really good) programmers for any project, they
would be really happy to work for U$S 5-8/Hour.

Asunto: Re: [Rails] Freelance Rate
What is your experience in other web development projects? I am 22, have
3/4 years java experience, 1 year of .net, 3 years php and about a year
rails experience. I live in the Netherlands (in U.S. loans are higher)
and charge 50 euro to 90 euro/hour for most projects. But some of my
friends that are developing full time (I am a parttime developer and
fulltime student) are charging 90 euro to 150 euro/hour. Its really rare
to find someone charging less then 45 euro/hour. I think most developers
are charging much more than I am…(but might have more experience)…

Not sure where to address this question … but I guess this is a good
start. I am a freelance Rails developer - and have been developing
apps professionally for about a year now. I just want to get an idea
what you other freelancers charge yourselves out at. I have been
charging the equivalent of about $28/hour, but get a sense that I
could/should charge a whole lot more. I am about to embark on an 8
project - and need to get an idea whether I need to negotiate my
contract a little better.
Anyway - if you can think of a better forum to ask this question lemme
