Pricing & Packages

I'm a freelancer and you can hire me for per hour or choose a yearly package.

< Hourly rate
My hourly rate is based on real work and does not include initial brief or research. My invoices report date and time details and I log each session to calculate the time spent on each task. For long term-projects I can setup an extra layer of control per task so each task has its own scope, comments and duration thresholds. I work on a win/win basis and "best work delivery" compared to "fastest work delivery"... worth a thousand words. This picture worth a thousand words.

< Bank hours
Working hours are based on the work done through flexible system implying mutually agreed tasks. Without annual subscription resources are better utilised and allowing a better control it spare from wasted paid hours. You have also a better control as currency exchange value (updated regularly) may modify the base price. Hour within an Hours Bank can be used up to 1 year after the purchase. The hours can be used for studies, investigations, configuration, development, maintenance, installation or team coordination.

10 Hours Bank

Benefit of a discount of : 2.5%

20 Hours Bank

30 Hours Bank

< Flat price yearly packages
My yearly and web apps packages include everything you need from the start to the end. The price and the tasks covered have been selected based on a long customer satisfaction tradition. As you pay ahead for a year I include a nice discount so it makes this fair for both sides. And, should you need a little extra, we can just add another couple of hours at my hourly rate.

A Comprehensive Guide on how I Prepare for a Tiki Wiki upgrade

Bernard Sfez -

When it comes to upgrading Tiki, there's no one-size-fits-all approach. As discussed with other Tiki developers, there are various methods to upgrade. Some prefer to stick with Long Term Service (LTS) versions for as long as possible, making occasional significant upgrades. Others choose to migrate existing files from version to version and some use fresh versions and clone theme, language files, templates, database and files. In this article, I'll draw from my extensive experience in using, providing support services, and developing with Tiki Wiki CMS and explain my detailed process for upgrading a customer's Tiki from one stable version to another.
