Jon Simon's Personal Development Site

I’ve been contracting now for roughly 7 years, and in that time I’ve seen a lot - good and bad. This specific career choice is not for everyone, but if you’re interested in a challenge, it’ll live up to it.
What are some of the major pit falls of contracting? No stability? Well, that’s questionable. High expectations from the business? This is true, as a lot of clients will expect you to hit the ground running. You’re the expert, and you need to act like one - know your stuff. Getting the cold shoulder from full-time employees? This will happen a lot of the time, but it really depends on the person and what you’re doing exactly. And the worse thing - you might not get paid! These are the risks we take.
I’m moving away from my usual topics, and thought I’d mention my latest project.
This is the first site I developed using the latest Symfony 2 framework, and the goal is to play around with some keyword phrases and see what kind of traffic I can muster up.
