How much to charge for a database?
Posted on 1998-08-17
I've been offered a database development project, but I have no idea what to charge. The database is pretty straightforward- about the complexity of the Northwind sample database, with more queries and reports. I feel like I can make this a professional program. I'm a computer science major and have also spent quite a bit of time working with Access and a couple Access development books, as well as developing another database for a local doctor. However, I have no idea what the going rate is (I traded the doctor for services), and since I am still on a learning curve, I hesitate to just charge by the hour. Can any professionals out there give me a rough idea what custom databases are going for? Thanks!
