  • Has anyone here made any money on the side with your CS skills during college?

    I want to start saving up for the loans I have to pay off when I graduate. I thought about doing an internship but what other methods are there to make money on the side for a college student? I'm doing a lot Ruby and JS.

    Several options I have tried before are freelancing or programming competitions/hackathons , I did both and ended up with some money but not as much as say if I just took an internship.

    Another thing I tried out was working part-time for a professor who I knew well, I actually had to start out by volunteering because said professor only hired PhD students but I was able to earn something after he liked what I was doing.
