This is a serious question, yet maybe desperate one too,  so I just post it here without spending the time to look for the best 'forum category to post'. 

So if you have skills in C#/C++/AI computer vision and etc can you find a low paid project that can be started at least from "distance"/freelance (with option to relocate maybe). 

Places like upwork are horrible, these days they won't even let you sign up, I miss the days of rent-a-coder and odesk... 

Do freelancers work on fixed-price basis or are they too lazy to carry out a project estimation pilot project? If not what you see is creeping costs (for the customer) and creeping featuritis.
  • How does a project get to be a year late? … One day at a time.
I suppose people like to know what they are getting for what price and when.
