In fact I think it should be as cheap as you can afford. That's why all of my plugins are available for nothing, as free as the air you breathe, on Github as well as for purchase on the Rock Store. In fact generosity is such a driving factor in the way I do business I give 10% of my net-income to the Spark Development Network to fund the development of Rock. Oh and my rates are pretty good too.

I believe in open source, it's one of the reasons I love Rock so much. All of my plugins and tools are licensed under the Apache 2.0 license meaning you are free to peek under the hood at the code, alter it, and even distribute it yourself. Open source means you can rest easy knowing you can't ever be held to ransom by closed code.
Check Out my Plugins
I produce plugins for sale in the Rock Store ranging from SendGrid integrations to custom communication components. In addition, if you've got a need that isn't quite met by Rock or any existing plugins on the market I may just be the
droids help you're looking for.
Figuring out where to start with Rock can be hard. I've been there since pre-1.0 and I gotten several Rock t-shirts along the way. Whether it be a conversation about whether Rock is right for you, initial setup, project planning, post-setup tweaks, advanced configuration, or any combination of buzzwords you can think of I'd like to see if I can help.
I promise that if I don't feel like a project is a fit for me I won't waste your time, or mine. I don't charge for initial conversations and I won't charge five minute jobs. I promise to be affordable (in real terms) and I promise to be transparent every step of the way.
