Freelancers meeting notes for 26th June 2024

Posted by

On the 26th June, fifteen freelancers met in the beer garden of the Battle of Trafalgar pub to talk all things tech and freelancing. There was a lot of different conversations going on, this is some of the topics I managed to note down:

  • Using frameworks and libraries vs writing all the code in a project
  • Taking people to court and timescales of responses
  • Do you use invoicing software or just Office-style software?
  • Brighton’s pubs and soft drink prices
  • A production of Jane Austin’s Persuasion by three people
  • The problems tackled in updating an old website
  • Die with Zero” by Bill Perkins
  • Finding time to work on your own projects
  • Moving over to new hardware
  • Finding work
  • Getting advice from tech communities can be frustrating
  • Learning Docker
  • Dealing with your finances
  • Enjoying DrupalCamp Cemaes
  • Taking code out of Drupal projects due to a serious vulnerability
  • Getting fit

Thanks to everyone who came along for making it a great evening.
