comment Writing a client contract for Web development?
@Myles tips on how to write a good contract will probably vary very much from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. An hour of a competent lawyer's time might be a worthwhile investment. Alternatively, maybe check with professional associations for contract templates - but there are also likely to be online resources that help with this. It's just important that they're specific to your country.

@giddy yup, you can mark it hidden until you're ready. (At least that's my understanding of how it works) Edit: Got it, you can delete

@giddy ah, okay, fair enough. If it doesn't work out, I'm happy to send you an invite - just tell me an E-Mail address to send it to.

@giddy I have been given a number of invites to SO careers (see here for how it works). Do you want one?

comment Is a designer supposed to write CSS code?
It will totally depend on the nature of the arrangement with the colleague or employer or client. I don't think there is a general rule here. Both sides have good arguments.

@giddy you look like somebody who might profit from Stack Overflow in the long term - where people are looked at for actual competence and passion. Be sure to have a CV filed at careers.SO, one never knows

I think the question is coming along in a very constructive manner.

Very interesting, thanks for the viewpoint. I think the "parents pushing their kids into, and people studying, stuff they're just not good at" phenomenon is pretty much a world-wide one - its bad results just seem at its most visible in India at the moment because it's so insanely attractive there to do offshore work, and other metrics like population. But it would be a huge mistake to think India doesn't have brilliant people, and competent developers
