This week's podcast guest is Evan Light. I met Evan at the Ruby|Web Conference at Snowbird. He's responsible for Coulda and the Ruby DCamp.
Evan recommended Get Clients Now!(TM): A 28-Day Marketing Program for Professionals, Consultants, and Coaches(affiliate link) for marketing as a freelancer.
We talked about organizing a conference and what it takes.
He also had some great suggestions for people thinking about switching to freelance.
I also found his discussion of why he wrote Coulda very interesting. It inspires me to think that if I want something different, I can create it.
If you're looking for a way to increase readability of your code, look at flog or metric_fu.
