My last couple diaries announced I was looking for a software consulting contract. I'm happy to announce I found one, writing the GUI for a Mac program that's being ported from Windows. The client has expressed a lot of enthusiasm for me, and said there could be lots more work for me if I do well on this first job.
I also wrote about how I've been learning C# because that's what all the clients want in the area where I live. During my search, I found a post asking for a volunteer C# programmer to update a Windows Forms application for a charity. I told them I would do the work for free if they would agree to give me a job reference afterwards. I explained that I was new to C#, but was otherwise experienced. They have agreed to have me do the work, with the help of someone who is experienced with C#. That could work out well, as I would have someone to ask questions of.

If you live in Nova Scotia, you can hear me play live. I play each weekend at an open mic in Truro, and expect to start playing open mics in Halifax soon as well.
