My name is Nathan Coumbe, and I am somewhat new to the Code Academy family. I went through the coding foundations path, I work as a Creative at Apple where I teach others the language of Swift coding, and have recently started the Web Development path and am loving learning HTML and CSS.
I have been thinking about doing this as a possible career change and was wondering what some of you all did to start out as web developers? My wife needs a website, so I thought I would practice by building one for her; I also have a friend who is a photographer who is need of a website and offered to build one for him if he would be a guinea pig for me practice.
How do you guys that freelance charge your customers (for future reference)? Do you charge a lump sum, do you base it on something specific, or do you set up a monthly fee that your customers must pay you to keep the website up to snuff? Any ideas or experience that you all have would be greatly appreciated.
Looking forward to hearing back from all of you.
