Fulltime freelancer. Based in Montreal, Quebec. Founder and Editor of MTL State.
After 9 years in top Montreal agencies, I have spent the last 8 months as a freelancer and developed a clear offer as a web consultant and developer. If you are wondering if freelancing is for you or need help getting started (rates, taxes, quotes, dealing with clients/agencies, etc...), I will be happy to share my experience with you and help you feel more confident about what you offer!
I have launched MTL State in September 2009. With more than 4000 Twitter followers, my lifestyle blog gives restaurant, bar and travel reports on places I have discovered. Wondering how to start your own blog and get noticed?
A good question would be on the framework to see if they ever opened the code or just used it as is:
Magento is based on Zend Framework and MVC development.
Sofia provides excellent insights on experiences and perspectives. We had a good call. She is very open, willing to share experiences, and has a good sense of humor. I recommend her to anyone with interests in freelancing, web design and development, or Montreal State.
J'ai eu la chance de travailler avec Sofia chez NVI alors qu'elle chapeautait l'équipe d'intégrateurs. Ce qui est agréable de travailler avec Sofia c'est qu'elle est très à l'affut des nouvelles pratiques, ce qui permet de créer des designs plus sophistiqués. De par ses connaissances techniques avancées, sa personnalité attachante et toujours prête à aider les autres, Sofia s'est rapidement imposée comme chef d'équipe chez NVI. Elle est très appréciée de ses collègues et je n'hésite pas à la recommander!
Sofia and I worked together at Inpix. During that time I developed a very high regard for Sofia based on the outstanding contributions that she made to our productions. In fact, I found Sofia was the most productive team member that Inpix hired during my time at the company!
Sofia has a combination of speed and accuracy that enables her to produce a very high volume of work while maintaining very high standards for quality. Sofia is able to follow complex directions in a thorough and detailed manner and also work very independently without close supervision when it was appropriate.
Furthermore her people skills are outstanding, allowing her to get the best of those around her.
