[Baypiggies] Contracting in Python

One of the things I've noticed more and more as I meet people in this
community is that either have a large number of our members contracting at
places, or others trying to contract but don't know how. It's amazing how
many people I discover that have been doing this for years.

I am not volunteering to put a workshop together (I can't keep up with my
own contracts right now, much less help anyone else). But, I think that is
something that would be a great idea if someone is interested. I had tried
(offline) to put together something like this at the beginning of this year.
I even had (still could get) a business developer speaker to speak (without
charging us) about some business topics. I just couldn't get a
business-like-setting/space for our meetings. I wasn't confident enough to
advertise the event because I wasn't certain we could get an adequate space.
So, I let it go. Someone else may have better luck.

The second thing I've noticed is that some of our work is with front-end
technologies. I personally would rather contract out the CSS and JavaScript
work to someone else - just so I can focus on one thing.

I have a co-worker who really enjoys the JavaScript and CSS type work. If we
all got together, physically in the same location, to work on our projects
on a Saturday; and if we invited him, would anyone else have work for him?
He may be interested in doing this if we can get enough work for him (and if
he has the free time). It'd have to be worthwhile for him.
