TLDR: I am organising a live Q&A about freelancing, targeted at developers who wish to start in the coming weeks. Should this have a positive response, I will organise a series of webinars in the coming weeks.
Completely free, no selling of courses, no get rich quick schemes, just pure value.

For the past few months, I have been pondering of ways I can add value to the overall dev community and after posting this article, back in 2018 (https://dev.to/fzammit/10-lessons-from-a-software-engineer--freelancer-1fho) I decided it is high time I get to share my experience as a freelancer, 15 years of it (Gawd, time flies).
I always loved the idea of a community as it brings a certain energy to the place. In the past, I used to organise meet-ups with friends and we used to have over 200 attendees, from different backgrounds (freelancers, creatives, architects, designers, developers etc) https://business.facebook.com/heydayofficial/ and now I want to create something similar for freelancers, specifically developers.
This is an experiment as I have no idea what the response will be like....but the idea is to organise a series of webinars split into recommended strategies (40% of the time) and questions and answers (60% of the time). I want to hear about your successes, struggles, why maybe you haven't started and what might be holding you back.
The target audience is for anyone starting off or might have 1 or 2 clients.
If you are asking whether this is the right time? There is never a right time and from my experience during the recession in 2009, this can work. More on this in the webinar...
This webinar is completely free, no selling of courses, no get rich quick schemes, just pure value and if this is of any interest please register your interest here https://forms.gle/Ts2JMs1CoNp2CoUr5.

Looking forward to seeing you at the webinar :) and I would highly appreciate if you would share this with any of your friends.
