Freelancing projects | Software Freelancing | Software Programmers

Online resources on Freelancing projects, Software Freelancing and Software Programmers

With the market situation being not so good for software programmers, many of us are looking forward for some kind of software freelancing opportunities. In this regard I wanted to start some discussion and also explore the opportunities available all over the world for freelancing software projects.

There are many online websites from where you can get inputs on freelancing projects in web development and web designing. Whether you are a java web developer or .NET developer or a web development expert in php, mysql, html, jquery you can find tons of information on freelancing. One thing I also found interesting is about the number of sites that are available on bidding for projects.

You can individually bid for software projects that are available online. I know many freelance software professionals who got benefited from such sites, in fact there are small size software development companies that bid aggressively for these projects online and do get some sizable revenue from these sources.

Some of the sites that I was mentioning are:
http://getafreelancer.com
http://www.freelancingjob.com/
http://www.programmingbids.com/

http://www.odesk.com/
http://www.rentacoder.com/
http://www.projects2bid.com/

I will keep updating this list and will add more to this as and when I get some valid information.

Make your own barcode from www.barcodesinc.com

Make your own bar code | What is a bar code

As you all know today is the 57th anniversary of Barcode and many online sites and people are celebrating its birthday. If you searched for anything today in Google you would have noticed a new bar code next to Google search box. This barcode is nothing but "Google".

Just like Google did this you can also generate a bar code for anything including your name - here is the resource for the same:
www.barcodesinc.com

On the above site you can type any value and get your "Barcode Label Printer - Free Online Barcode Generator". This is really cool. It uses a set of parameters and then I guess some CGI script to generate an image that represents the value you entered. This image can then be scanned by the most common barcode readers to get the actual value of the code.

The application of bar code is immense these days and you can find it in many point of sales applications, application forms, records etc.

What is a barcode?
Here is the definition from Wikipedia about Barcode:
A barcode is an optical machine-readable representation of data.

Effort Estimation of Automation Testing

Effort Estimation of Automation Testing is very tricky and one has to consider few things in detail to arrive at the same. Here are some steps that need to be considered for the same: (Win Runner, QTP, Quick Test Pro, Selenium are the most common regression automation testing tools used these days.)

Identify the scope of automation test scripting

See how many of the manual test cases, test scenarios can actually be automated

Identify the steps in each test case

Count the number of data driven aspects, number of validations in each test case

Based on the above arrive at the size of the each test case in terms of small, medium or large

Best thing is to perform one automation test case and see the time it takes

Compare the size of the above test case and derive a numerical effort to the gorupings of the test cases - small, medium and large

Add some factors such as automation test framework, test data setup, test environment

As the size of the test steps increase there may be an increase in the complexity also, this could be one of the estimation attribute of automation testing

Add some management effort and test tool complexity to this effort

Software Development Life Cycle Methodologies

Just an overview of Software Development Life Cycle Methodologies, also referred to as SDLC. Every software project will have to follow some kind of life cycle. In fact this applies just for every product development.

Some common SDLC methodologies

Waterfall Software Development Methodology
Iterative SDLC Methodology
Incremental SDLC
Incremental Waterfall
IBM Rational Unified Process - RUP
Microsoft Solutions Framework - MSF

Agile based Software Development Life Cycle Methodologies - like

Extreme Programming
SCRUM
Test Driven Development
Feature Driven Development

More on SDLC
Now this product development life cycle when applied to Software projects - new product development or maintenance then it is termed as SDLC. For freshers and experienced software professional it is very important to understand the different aspects of an SDLC.

Most of the Software companies - both software services and product development - are looking for peoples who not only have good technical knowledge but also posses some kind of an exposure to any of the standard industry followed Software development Life Cycle methodologies.

With many factors coming into play in today's Software industry - like distributed development, agile nature of work, communication barriers, teams from different cultural background, time to market, increasing demands to meet last minute changes and changing customer specifications etc - it has become very critical for software companies and individuals to adopt one or more SDLC and also to improve on the processes that are established around these life cycles.

So testing an individual's exposure to these aspects has become an important factor and is one of the measuring attribute in interviews these days.

Web Development using PHP Frameworks

Learn PHP Frameworks and develop websites and blog sites quickly

For every one who their career in website designing and website development, I want to suggest that they should look at their careers and preferably can select PHP as the language of their choice to develop the sites.

I am saying this because there are so many Content Management Systems (CMS) that have come up these days that rely on PHP. Most of these CMS are open source and there is a great potential for you to make a mark in this open source technologies.

Very popular PHP frameworks that are being used now a days are following - there are a lot more, I am just listing a few.

Wordpress (Blogging and Content Management Tool)

Joomla (Powerful Content Management Tool)

Drupal (Module based CMS Tool)


Blogger (Easy to use blogging tool)


TypePad (You can use and install customized blogging templates)


PHPBB (PHP based forum management and Bulletin Board sites)


These Technologies, as mentioned, are based on LAMP Technologies - Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP - try learning these technologies - I have a list of interview questions that you can refer to in case you need to attend an interview in these areas.

If not as part of an organization, you can make your career individually by mastering any of the above PHP frameworks - since mostly everything is open source you can develop custom modules, plug-ins for these tools that will be used by many website developers or content managing teams.

There is a career in writing plug ins, modules, scripts,themes, templates, CSS that add rich features to any site.

Read below on most common interview questions in these technologies
