If you are familiar with my work and are interested in help with an Ionic related project, this page describes the ways in which we might be able to work together. I do not generally take on large consulting roles/projects, but I do offer small consulting packages that can be purchased from this page to help you or your team.
The general structure of these consulting services are that you will purchase a block of time, and I will use this time to respond to your queries or complete work for you. The consulting is conducted entirely through email, so if you feel that services you are seeking would require Skype calls, live chats, or screen shares, then these services may not be a good fit.
You have an entire year to use up the hours from any consulting package that you buy. Smaller packages are best used to provide guidance and quick answers to individual developers over a long period of time, or to review code. Larger packages are suitable for individuals or teams who want a larger amount of support and a more hands on approach - it is up to you to decide how to use these hours whether it be ongoing support, code reviews or refactoring.
NOTE: Unless you are just looking for general help/support with Ionic, please contact me before purchasing to ensure that we will be able to work together.
David Izatt, Software Architect, Essenti Technologies
We engaged Josh as the subject matter expert for the mobile portion of our project with the intention to create a more effective team by offloading some of the more complex aspects of our work. I am happy to say that our expectations were met and exceeded. From the start, Josh's experience and easy going manner made it easy for us to include him as a team member in our software engineering process. His knowledge and enthusiasm turned what would be schedule blocking issues, into easily manageable tasks with a quick turnaround. Easily the most bang for the buck! In short - hire Josh. Your engineers, customers, and budget will thank you.
Basic Support (1 hour) - $100
Basically, we’ll become email buddies. If you’re stuck with something or need some advice you can send me an email and I’ll usually get back to you within 24 hours during the work week. This is great for quick questions and guidance.
I’m pretty lenient with the time I spend getting back to people, so I’m not going to cut you off as soon as you’ve accumulated an hours worth of help, but you will need to repurchase this package eventually for continued help.
Premium Support (3 hours) - $300
We’ll still be email buddies but with this package, I can be a little more hands on. I’d be happy to code up simple solutions for you or take a look at and debug code that you write.
Enterprise Support (10 hours) - $1,000
- Not currently available
This is more or less the same idea as the previous package, just on a larger scale. I'll be able to code more complex solutions and even create simple prototype applications for you, as well supporting you or your development team. At this level, I can start jumping in on your Git repositories and contribute code.
Thank you for your great support. I appreciate the quality and speed of your answers. It is difficult to find solutions to some questions while developing mobile apps and your support made my life easier.
Please note that unused consulting hours are not refundable (e.g. if you only want to use 8 out of 10 available hours, you can not receive a refund for the remaining two hours). Once work has commenced consulting packages are not refundable, however if you decide that the services aren't for you before commencing work I will happily provide a full refund.
I still offer free support to everybody who reads my blog, but it is often the case now that I don't have time to respond to everybody. If you purchase a support package you can continue to ask me simple questions via email even after your guaranteed support hours have been used up and I will answer your questions before anybody who does not have priority support. I strive to answer as many of these queries as possible, but there is no guarantee that you will receive a response.
None of these packages suit your needs?
After a bigger package? I'm not taking on larger projects at the moment, the main reason for this service is because I get a lot of requests for help and this helps manage that. However, do feel free to get in touch and let me know what you're after.
