Ask DN: How much do you charge as a contractor?

    The average industry rate for developers at large technology companies(last I checked) was $995 per day. So, if your placement company takes say 30%, you will be making about $85 per hour. I have no idea what the rate is for designers, but should be similar. We paid design contractors about $140 per hour on my last project. This was in Upstate, New York. Very low cost of living.
