    new essay on the nettuts sites discusses the most important skills a freelance developer needs. in the comments section, some posters said that asp.net also needed to be added to that list. I am not a developer, just passing it along.

    Hm.. for that you need a lot of experience. But I think with this skills, you could make a good amount of $$$ every month.

    What do you think one average Freelancer with this skills makes a month?

    I think curl should be on that list too, any serious web developer should have that in his/her arsenal

    i think old programming languages like c++ and c# are also important. If you can conquer these languages, it shows that you will not have any problems picking up new programming languages even if you didn't learn them before.
