My contract is just about over and I don't have another job lined up.
In the eloquent words of Reggie Watts, "Ficketty fuck. Ficketty fuck. Ficketty fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck."
I can now design, develop, and deploy full stack web apps though. And I've got a few promising leads, but still....
I'm going to get into bots pretty soon, applied to my own company but it looks like that one's ripe pickings for consultancy if that's your bag. All the big players have bot projects in the pipeline and (unlike wi the internet) we have the infrastructure here already and everyone is already connected to so there's no technological barriers to adoption like last time round.
If I was looking to freelance, I'd be getting in early and trying to get a couple of projects under my belt, targeting businesses and hooking a bot into their booking/ordering/erp/whatever system. The use cases as far as I can see are damn near any scenario which currently benefits from having a computer system in the first place.
