Sometimes freelancers must decline projects because they are fully booked, sometimes because they can not tackle them alone. And sometimes freelancers have a gap and could need one of the projects which others are just rejecting.
Many of this projects would not be lost if they were approached together.
If we build a freelancer community we can improve freelancing for all stakeholders including the customers.
This workshop will look at strategies and structures for collaborative commercial projects in distributed teams. It will compare this structures with that of open source projects like Drupal. And it will look at how some of it's challenges can be overcome.
And most important, it will start a discussion about how we can actually get started.
