Doing a bit on the side ...

I'm a coder, with skills in python, ruby, rails, java, etc. I've recently started getting offers for (and accepting) short-term contract work in addition to my longer-term dayjob contract. However, I'm unsure what the going rate is for the work I do - how much should I charge on a per-hourly basis? How does this vary with respect to the length of the contract (eg, a day, a week, a month, six months)? [more inside]

Fun New Product at Work

The management at the company I'm working for has sold a couple customers on a product that we as the worker-bees have yet to produce. That being said I view this more as an opportunity to do something new than as a huge hassle, assuming we can figure out a convenient way of producing said product. So I was hoping the great and wonderful MeFi might have a couple suggestions they might throw my way. [more inside]
