Non web or mobile freelance developer? - Off topic

Users browsing this thread: 1 Guest(s)
Hello nixers,

This is a topic that has been bothering me for the past months/years. As a student most of the income I've made has been as a freelance developer, whose projects were commonly web or mobile.

By the time I write this I still offer web development as one of my services, but have figured out I'm more into desktop development / embedded systems. Which made me question, are there freelance developers not focusing in these two areas (web/mobile)?

What kind of projects do they do?

Lots of struggle this week thinking about it. Printed my business card as "software developer" since I want to be open for a switch in the coming weeks to the area I like.

All of the freelance software developers i know work on FOSS projects. You could try the freelancer sites to see if theres any commercial frelance work out there.
