Today I got aquintance to freelance in general and Toptal exactely. And it happend accidentaly: while I was looking for exapmles of test task on interview for Python developer, Google conducted me to Toptal web-site. First thing I did there: watched proposed example tasks but later they propose me to stay a litlle bit more there. And after that I realize where I got.
So, what's freelance for me? As imagine tells me, it's some kind of romance: you're at home, nobody does not any clicks over your head, phone ringing on only important issues, and you really feel free of evething worst in this world. But it's only in my mind. And, as understanding comes to me, finally I realized that freelance it's more than sitting at home and drinking coffee before laptop. It's real work that you can really touch, in code on your computer or, finally, in your TV-set on a wall or in new device of your kid.
I can't show with my deep development experience off. Honestly, at this time I have only willing to change my life, my unuseful for me personally spending of time on managing position while mind tramping and you began to forget even simplest operators in Pascal or Basic. And all this time new application came in ours world, in ours gadgets, in ours automobiles and even, just image that!, refrigerators. And while life became simpler with new software you just watching and thinking: Oh, they are good boys (or girls, I can do the same... But no, because you have to sit off your 8 hours at your desk, then you have to come to home, and then again to work to sit off your next 8 hours. Is there any sense? I think no, this is that Samsara Buddists want to leave.
And I'm really grateful with this attempt Google presented to me and led me to Toptal.
What I'm waiting from joing to https://www.toptal.com? Development, learning, searching for new ways, new acquintances and, finally, personal development.
This is really new life. New possibilities. And a step further.
