Dear Future Client or Employer,
Though I am presently working on a mathematics paper, and its implementation in MS SQL Server, I am still available for software consulting, either lecturing on Abstract Development – a modified formal methods paradigm that uses program-generation to create a dynamic and extensible system – or hands-on development using your paradigm with your development stack and with your people, at $500 a professional day for on-site assignments, though only in the borough of Manhattan, with payment the day of the work until more regular arrangements are made.
Though I prefer going through my company, Abstract Development, I can work and I have worked on a W-2 basis and in a permanent position. Again, I am available for on-site assignments in Manhattan only and my rate is $500 a professional day, paid at the end of the day until a regular schedule of work and payment is established. Since on-site work is the best use of my time as a problem-solver, as it gives me access to all of the interested parties, and since such work precludes any other use of the day for other clients, I must insist on a full, professional day and payment on that basis, even if I am barred from on-site work for part of an assigned day. Note also that, though I am amenable to partial week work schedules, indeed prefer them, I will not wait a month to get paid. Also, I will only work business days, since I am a paid chorister on Sundays and I wish to reserve Saturdays for concentrated academic work. Taken altogether, my terms are consistent with standard business practice and the rate is quite modest for a computer programmer of any experience, let alone my own.
Please e-mail me at cpklapper@AbstractDev.com to discuss how I can meet your development needs.
C. P. Klapper
