A network engineer is a technology professional who has the necessary skills to plan, implement and support the computer networks that support in-house voice, data, video and wireless network services.

But... Why are we talking about Network Engineers?

Most people don't know, but this is a field that some developers are starting to pay attention to.

However... I'm not going to be the one who will talk about network engineers today.

276 How To Become A Freelancer Software Developer? - Simple Programmer Video Podcast

November 8, 2017

► How To Become A Freelancer Software Developer? ◄

When I was working a regular 9-to-5 job, I’d often fantasize about starting my own business––working for myself.

I’d think about how nice it would be to be a freelancer and not have a boss. I’d daydream about traveling the world, working whatever hours I pleased, and making hoards of money from lucrative contracts.

Then I’d snap to reality as I realized I had no idea how to go about making something like this happen. I mean, how do you actually become a freelancer and work for yourself?

This is the dream of most software developers. Most of them fantasize about working for themselves, just to start in freelancing and discover that things do not work 100% like that.

The first question you should ask yourself is if you are sure whether or not you really want to embark upon this path.
Don’t get me wrong; I want you to become an entrepreneur of sorts.
I want you to eventually stop working for “the man” and find your path to freedom.
But freedom is not for everyone.

The reality is that it is going to take a large amount of work to even get to the point where the dream is a reality.
