As you, probably, know, I left consulting field. However, it does not mean, that I quit helping developers community with client application development. Also, every day I'm getting between 50 and 300 emails with questions (I'm trying to answer all of those) and sometimes proposals for consulting. Currently I'm refusing all those, because I do not want to engage to it. However, there are too much people, who really need professional developers help and there are very few good development consultants in our area. Thus I decided to keep consulting, but this time only for charity.
How does it work?
- You want me to help you with your development.
- I have free time for it.
- We decide together about the fee.
- You get consulting and you are happy with it.
- I tell you what charity organization to transfer all amount, you should pay (except TBL, if there are).
- You transfer it.
- We made the world a bit better!
To clarify things:
- It's not charity foundation – you will transfer the money directly to organization, that need it
- I'm not doing it for free – I feel, that finally I'm able to do something really big for those, who need it
I still had no chance to speak with my ex-engagement manager, however I believe, that he will not have a problem with this kind of payment to me. If so (and you have open PO in Microsoft Israel with him), you'll be able to use it.
