While browsing around the local blogosphere I found this really helpful post. Thanks Chris.
You can read his post or go directly to the list of resources here. This list is pretty exhaustive and I can’t imagine how long it must have taken to put it together. Bloggers have to be some of the most helpful people in the world, period.
Ok so, long story short, the funding for a startup I’ve been working for has fallen through. 6 months of work down the drain.
Needless to say I’m disappointed, sorely so, but not just for myself. The guys I was working with are a really generous, friendly and supportive bunch, and I’m bummed for them as well. We all put alot of time, money and effort into this project and it really sucks. But, such is life and we all knew the risks going in.
For me, there is no such thing as failure, only feedback. That’s my motto and I’m sticking to it.
What all of this really means is that I’m now looking for either another job or some freelance projects. So if you’re looking for a freelance developer, check out my “About” page and drop me a line if interested.
On an interesting note – if you’re ever in a similar position I definitely suggest that you take a look at the Sitepoint Marketplace. Conversly, if you’re looking to hire freelance developers, designers etc they have a section for that too.
Another good site to check out, especially if you’re a designer or looking for a designer, is 99designs. Pity I’m not one of those really creative types.
