    What Does it Take to be a Consultant?

    James Nagy - 176 Article rating: No rating

    ​In a time of convenience, people are searching for more and more ways to work towards the glamorous idea of working from home or working for themselves. It sounds like an ideal plan for everyone.  Work when you want. Take on clients that you want. The idea of making your own schedule and setting your own pace is a generally appealing one to people. Add to this the sheer number of people who think of themselves as an expert in their field.  With people thinking about branching out on their own it begs the question –what does it take to be a consultant?

    Life or Death Software Development

    James Nagy - 299 Article rating: No rating

    When people hear the term software developer, they probably don’t think of a career that involves individuals holding people’s lives in their hands.  The reality is though that for some who are writing software, it could mean life or death.  Consider things like autonomous software for Tesla –mess that up and it could mean death. Drug to drug interaction checking –this can also cause death.  There is definitely a difference in writing software for video games vs writing software that flies airplanes. We are going to hope that that is one that absolutely needs to be right.

    Work Work Work - Life Balance

    James Nagy - 462 Article rating: No rating

    The work - life balance is a dilemma that plagues everyone in the working world.  It’s the concept of properly prioritizing between "work" (your career) and your "life" (health, leisure, family time, etc).  As a consultant, you are putting in about three times the amount of work vs life.  Why is this? You don’t have one job. You have multiple jobs and clients at once. There are multiple projects you are working on and only one life to balance against it.

    Problem Solving: The Skill Every Consultant Should Have

    James Nagy - 797 Article rating: No rating

    Consultants enter brand new situations every day. As a consultant, you may be coming into a company you’ve never dealt with before, you may be dealing with a specific problem or set of obstacles you haven’t encountered before, or you may be the fresh eyes and perspective that this client needs. Whatever the circumstances, you have to consider all options and opportunities for improvement and then dive in and decide how you’re going to approach and conquer that specific task.

    The Business of Negotiation

    James Nagy - 936 Article rating: No rating

    ​When building software, there are many times that you will be negotiating with other companies or clients.  Negotiation is a business within itself. If done properly, it can really benefit you. If done improperly, it can really hurt you. Negotiations will come up in countless areas of development.  For example, when developing software you may be negotiating with a company for the honor of using their own software inside of yours.  This type of deal is a mutually beneficial one.  My company will get the benefits of your software to add value to mine, and you will get money from every transaction that transpires or set of software sold. If you can negotiate properly, so that everyone is satisfied, it’s a win-win.
