    Smile Google wasn't built in a day.....This can't be either......

    Sorry, but the web application I have designed using html, css, and java thus far may require extensive knowledge and commitment to utilizing php, ajax, and mysql once the features are implemented. It's quite a simple tool, but I need someone who is commited long term because we need to build upon the foundation of this web application over time due to its sheer potential. I do like your quote however lol. This dream is keeping me up way too long ......

    Since this is a US based offer, I'm going to say that $20 / hr for a knowledgeable and committed programmer is a joke.

    Average programmer "Salary" in the US is roughly $55k / year. Which translates to about $27 / hr. And that's WITH benefits and employer paid taxes. The rule of thumb is an independent contractor will charge twice a salaried rate to make up for loss of benefits and additional taxes. So to get a solid programmer, I'd expect to pay at least $50 - $55 / hr.

    $20 / hr for an independent contractor is like $10 for a salaried position. I think most people on this board, and those living in the Chicago area, pull down at least twice that. Heck, I'll even bet McDonald's pays $10 / hr in Chicago.

    Don't mean to be rude, but if you have a solid idea that you truly believe in, then there should be some money behind it.

    Lightbulb I'll invest everything I have.....

    Actually, I'm only making $9/hr at my job right now and I live in Chicago, but I'll invest everything I have in order to get this project going. I'll pay $20+/Hr plus sweat equity in order to get this website up and running. This website can help so many people and I'm sure we'll get a ton of venture capitalists once its up. It's not a matter of if this web app will succeed, it's when. If there is anyone out there who believes me and lives in the Chicagoland area please email me at nextbigwebapp@gmail.com. Thanks a lot. I appreciate it.
