I'm a Freelancer now/soon

Python, Zope, Pyramid, whatever comes along

After 6 years at the Graphics Garage, my big projects there seems to be done. I've written three big systems there: Two of them to administrate every bit of the company, including organizing all the communication with the clients into an Extranet solution. It's time to move on... I'll start working on my own as a freelancer now.

I have on and off worked with Python and Zope since 2002. I've also worked with other web based systems of all kinds (and some not-web-based ones), so I guess I'll stay in the web based programming area for now. I've worked on big and small projects, in teams and alone. Some of my stuff is open source and can be admired from my pro page (with links to my resume too), some is proprietary client stuff and will stay hidden in their code vaults forever.

With all that Zope experience, I'm obviously there for any ol' Zope site in need of an overhaul or extension. For the "new" stuff that's not Zope, right now I've started a little fun project with Pyramid and I've got some Django and Ruby scheduled too. Whatever comes along though, if the tool does the job, it's fine for me.

For starters I continue supporting the projects of the Garage of course, putting my projects there into "maintenance mode". I also have the first project coming along from a customer in Switzerland. I've got some leads from France, so I might be having fun soon as an "international enterprise".

I don't want to hurry it in the beginning (starting too many things at once is as bad as starting nothing), but I've still got some capacity free. So, service announcement: If you need some good programming done, drop me a line!

Re: I'm a Freelancer now/soon

I think this is a wise move/decission for someone with your background. You will be able to help with other projects (opensource or not) and people searching for a high quality developer will have now the choice to hire you.

I think it is even more important to have someone like you "in the market" because your zope background is really good (I've had the chance to work with you in some projects) and Zope support is lacking of experts these days.

So here is my recommendation for any company out there searching for a python developer (no matter if it is for starting a new project or adding some "power" to an existing one). This guy is really worth it.
