The industry's changing work landscape became even more chaotic during the pandemic. While some freelancers and independent contractors found it easier to get work, others discovered it was much harder, and some developers were forced into freelancing. Freelancers will be (hopefully) transitioning their businesses to a post-pandemic world soon. This roundtable will cover how freelancers improved their businesses during this time, what didn't work, and how to return to employment if that's the direction some attendees need to take. Most importantly, this roundtable is a community of freelancers and independent contractors offering support, encouragement, and guidance.
During this roundtable, attendees will share what they've learned about their businesses during the pandemic, with the aim of helping each other transition out of this extraordinary period. The moderators will provide topics and facilitate discussions that are pressing issues for all freelancers.
This roundtable is designed for devs interested in becoming freelancers, freelancers of all experience levels, and devs who are looking to work with freelancers.
