Seeking consultation from top level expert - pay offered
« on: December 24, 2020, 12:34:18 pm »
Hi all,
I'd like to see if anybody with a high degree of experience in commercial level builds is interested in a few consultation sessions (paid ) to bring me up to speed to be able to deliver a commercial level product. I've sorted everything except really nailing the programming and making it scalable.

Inbox me if you'd like to discuss more

I usually suggest using staples or carpet tacks for the programming, as nails tend to go in too deep. Usually the programming doesn't weigh much in the end (even after tacking it down) so you probably won't need a scale for that part.

How does one know if they are a top level programmer?   Do we have to fight all the other programmers with kitanas, beheading each opponent until there is only one?  If so I have swords and duffle bags for the heads.

I think top level programmer means where you physically do your coding. So, top level means, Penthouse Programmer. No basement pajama coders. He didn't specify what they should be wearing, but I think it's pretty obvious he means no pajamas allowed.

Bait the line.

Wait for the tug, then reel them in (but not too fast, it spoils the fun)
