Ticked Off Programmer Had a Brilliant Response When Asked To Work For Free

or some unexplainable reason, many writers, artists, etc. are often asked to work for free. Or rather, asked to work for "exposure," meaning that the simple act of getting their work out there should be reward enough. "Exposure," however, doesn't buy you toilet paper from the store.

If you asked a dentist to clean your teeth in exchange for a good Yelp review, you would be laughed out of the office, and for good reason — it's ridiculous.

And it turns out that programmers aren't immune from this situation either. Zach Zundel, who is one such programmer, was asked to do coding/backend work for free, which didn't go over well on either end of this conversation.
