    Ben Furfie: What I’d Do Differently If I Freelanced Again

    WordCamp London 2016Speaker: Ben Furfie

    June 5, 2016 — Last year, I accepted an offer to work for an agency as a senior front end developer. I won’t lie. I was relieved. Over the moon. 2014-15 was a tough year and a half. I had a couple of tough projects, nightmare clients and bad debts. In this talk, I will look at where it all went wrong, the things I would do differently and what I’ve learnt working for a large agency. It would be broken down into four or five points, which I’d spend some time looking at. This will be a brutally honest talk; one that hopefully will brush away from of the shame freelancers feel when they feel like they’re the only ones struggling.
