1-Week Consulting Engagements

I typically work with Java teams building web application with the Spring framework. 

I help the team with architectural guidance, planning and estimating features, spikes and proof of concepts, adoption of new technologies, etc. 

Over time, I saw I can best help focused, agile teams bring a single product to market.

Tier 1 - Small Team

This engagement is best suited for a small team - of 1-2 developers or a new codebase (under 1-year old). 

The bullet-points: 

  • Architectural Review of the codebase
  • Code Review of specific features
  • Technical advice, planning and roadmapping
  • Guidance on the technical stack for greenfield projects

The style of communication is email. 

Weekly Budget: 6000$

Tier 2 - Medium-Sized Team

This engagement is best suited for a medium team - of 3-4 developers

The bullet-points: 

  • Architectural Review of the codebase
  • Code Review of specific features
  • Technical advice and guidance
  • Live kick-off/wrap-up calls with the team or lead developer

The styles of communication are email and video (screencasts, recorded code walkthroughs, debugging sessions, etc). 

Weekly Budget: 7000$

Tier 3 - Large Team / Multiple Teams

This engagement is best suited for a large team or multiple teams

The bullet-points: 

  • Architectural Review of the codebase
  • Code Review of specific features
  • Technical advice and guidance
  • Live kick-off/wrap-up calls with the team or lead developer
  • Live Calls/Pair Programming with the team as needed

To keep things as efficient as possible, I typically create screencasts to dive into specific topics, to record debugging sessions or code reviews. I also pair with developers on the team, or have live calls to work through the more complex areas of the system.  

The style of communication here depends on what the team uses internally; that can be email, Slack, JIRA or something else. 

Weekly Budget: 8000$

Schedule an Engagement

I schedule all engagements at least two weeks in advance, potentially more - depending on my availability. 

Note that I only take on a single Tier 3 engagement at any one time, so please make sure to reach out at least 1 month in advance for these. 

Most of my consulting work starts with a call - so feel free to get in touch with me and tell me about your project.
