Really nice article on how to come up with a price for a contracting project.

Today we are going to break an unwritten rule for agencies, we are going to reveal an important page from our playbook on how we price a project. What is somewhat ironic is that we think it's a pretty bad rule, that one of the last things we think anyone should hide from a potential client is how your pricing works.

Very interesting indeed. I am in the middle of selecting a vendor for a web development project at my job and we've experienced a lot of what he talks about first-hand. One of the commenters notes that some of this info is not necessarily applicable (directly, at least) to overseas developers. We're dealing a lot with vendors from India, Russia, etc. because they offer tremendously lower dev costs and still good quality. But still a lot of the points made are important to consider. I just hope we end up making a good selection of vendor. :D
