Free IT Consultation in the DC Metro Area

I have been busy working on several things since I quit my job.  Things like the open source twitter/micro-blogging platform (yonkly.com), a couple of contracts for a couple of clients and not to mention all the learning, blogging, writing and speaking that I have been doing.  In the process I have learned a lot and I could honestly say that I learned more in the past 3 months than in the past year working a full time job.

I already share this knowledge through my blog, writing and speaking as much as I can.  In order to take this a step further and contribute directly to the community, I am offering my services for free.  Wait a second though, let me add some fine print…

If you are a business owner in the Washington DC Metro Area, then you should take advantage of this opportunity.  You have nothing to lose.  An expert consultation could easily cost you over $1000 – but you get it for free.  Sorry, I sound like a telemarketer.

Here is what you get:

  1. I will come to your business (with current gas prices – this is a big one)
  2. We will discuss your IT issues for half a day
  3. If I don’t know the answer, I will say so.  I don’t waste my time or your time.
  4. I will email you my recommendations within 2 business days
  5. I will not try to sell you anything or solicit any business.

Why talk to me:

  1. I have 10 years of IT and software development.
  2. I am a Microsoft Certified Solution Developer.
  3. I believe I am a .NET expert developer and architect
  4. I have lead and managed teams, local and remote.
  5. I understand the business implications of technology decisions.
  6. I don’t just code and write software, I can help you shape your online strategy and hopefully improve your business.
  7. I have worked for small, medium and large companies. 
  8. I have worked with the private and public sector as well as government and DOD.
  9. I am very good at what I do and not because I am smarter than other people but because I passionately LOVE what I do and strive to learn and do better every day.
  10. Take a look at some of my work to get an idea.  Most of these projects were done in my spare time and my most recent project is www.yonkly.com

Why am I doing this:

  1. I love what I do
  2. I want new challenges
  3. I want to help my immediate community
  4. I want to expand my professional network
  5. I am bored of working from home – I need to see people
  6. Almost every job and contract that I have been involved with was through word of mouth, so this, in the long run will help me.

If you are interested, then contact me through the contact page.  I am looking forward to meeting al of you.
