I am a student of computer science and a beginner programmer. How much should I charge per hour if I work as a freelancer? I wanted to charge $5 for one minor job, but they turned me down, because I was "too expensive". Can You comment? Thanks in advance, Grega from Slovenia, Europe

I think it depends on the actual work, amount of time you had estimated and the technologies you work on. The skillset also adds value to it.

Good luck.

I'm not in a position to give a sensible answer to this question, I'm afraid. I don't think knowing what to charge as a freelancer qualifies as even being in 297 things a programmer should know.
