I'm pleased to be a part of the "Business of Rails" panel at RailsConf this year. I'll be speaking alongside some major players in Rails consulting -- Justin Gehtland, Geoffrey Grosenbach, Joe O'Brien, Robby Russell, and Nathaniel Talbott. The panel is meant to answer your questions about the challenges, rewards, and dynamics of consulting with Rails.
As a one-man shop, I represent the small end of spectrum. I hope my contribution will be useful to others who are contemplating taking a similar approach, i.e, splitting your time between paid work and your own speculative projects. And, importantly, making a living doing what you enjoy with people you enjoy working with.
Again, I'm pleased to be on a panel with an esteemed group like this, and thanks to Nathaniel for pulling it together!
