Example: Harihareswara worked on the WisCon web application in 2011. The volunteers who develop a web application to manage the scifi convention WisCon had a jumble of bug reports and feature requests in BaseCamp, Google Code, old emails and text notes. Over a few months in 2011, Harihareswara consolidated and organized those TODOs into a prioritized queue, and kept the team on one page via BaseCamp updates and a weekly conference call.
More past clients and ideas for services are available at https://changeset.nyc/index.html . Harihareswara has worked with volunteer groups, media, nonprofits, open source projects, and individuals.
Four hours of Changeset’s services can clear your desk and give you renewed momentum for your project.
Other Notes: Work begins with a free initial half-hour consultation via phone or videochat in June 2016. The initial consultation will not count against your four hours of work. Changeset will then send you a work plan document, and upon your approval, begin the work. Barring emergencies in your life or in Harihareswara’s, work will complete by 31 July 2016, and probably much sooner.
Harihareswara lives in New York City. Changeset usually works remotely via email, IRC, VoIP, bugtrackers, wikis, and other tools you already use. If you’re in New York City, the initial consultation can take place in person.
