Forth is a programming language and software development environment mainly used for embedded computer systems. It was originally designed to control material handling systems in manufacturing, where it remains a popular solution today. Many of its advantages are that it is a relatively low-level language, which can result in smaller program sizes and faster execution times compared to higher-level languages.
When engaging a freelance Forth programmer, some potential projects could include creating or modifying firmware for embedded systems, developing and debugging device drivers or porting software from one platform to another. Alternatively, the freelancer could develop, test and maintain any existing Forth codebases.
Projects should be fully scoped before interviewing potential candidates, as this will help you determine the rate for the project. When conducting interviews via Freelancer, you should ask experienced Forth Programmers about their experience with specific projects, programming principles and understanding of Forth’s underlying principles. Qualified Forth programmers usually earn around $60-$90/hour according to industry standards.
