Doug Odegaard

Remote Work and Software Contracting 101

Thankfully we live in a time when forging out on your own with a new business is much simpler. This includes being an entrepreneur writing software for others.  This session explores how you might be able to become your own boss as a software contractor.  It is not necessarily for everyone but it could afford you time with family or even to focus on building your startup at the same time. Doug will convey real-life stories from his twelve year journey as a small shop artisan including a four year journey in that time building and folding a startup and now forging on a new one.  In addition we will review real-life scenarios of working as part of a remote team, serving solo doing gigs locally or internationally and how to make the most of remote working here in our beautiful state of Montana.
