It is probably an important choice for many software developers after a number of years of employment: do I stay employed, or do I take a plunge in the deep and start working as a freelancer? Figures from Dutch Bureau of Statistics show that IT specialists are in the top 10 professions with the most freelancers. More than one in five IT professionals is self-employed. Not a big surprise perhaps, you earn more as a freelancer and you get more space to do your work as you see fit. In addition, you can choose projects or clients that appeal to you.

Worldwide, millions of developers share their projects with a version control system. As a developer you can choose to share your code or keep it private. The great thing about a version control system is that it is possible to manage different versions and fall back on a previous version if something goes wrong. Sometimes developers make their projects public on purpose, so that other developers can contribute to their project and implement changes. Maybe you like to participate in projects yourself as well. It is also good fun to show your code to the world after all, your code is something to be proud of.

Flutter is an open source, cross platform UI toolkit based on Dart and developed by Google. It’s aim is to speed up the development of apps. Because Dart ‘translates’ to native code for both Android and iOS it significantly cuts back development time compared to building parallel apps in Kotlin (Android) and Swift (iOS).
