You cannot hide the source code from the programmer. At any cost, at any circumstances programmer would be able to re-write the code of your application, just even if he knows what your application is doing; if that is his intent.
Since you're running the business and before hiring the programmer you should have full control over which person you are going to make a business relation with. You should first of all write your policy and other terms, that he must accept before he starts the job.
In those terms you can indicate what-so-ever you want to abide him by. But still that doesn't give a 100% guarantee that programmer would always ensure the terms being applied on him. In these cases you are always allowed to use legal jurisdiction to fight for your right (if there are some).

Two steps on top of my mind:
1. Keeping core algorithms and code to yourself, with others just getting a dll to link to.
2. Making sure that the licensing algorithm and code is with you alone. You alone should hold the license generator.
1. You could make them partners in your company. Then they'd be stealing from themselves.
2. Give them profit sharing so that the more money the code makes the more money they make then they have no reason to steal it.
3. Pay them so handomely it would be more work to steal the code than to sit back and rake in the money you are paying them.
Is everything okay with your code and your employees now? I am about to do the same thing, I am not really good at these things. I proposed a term in the contract to prevent him from copying the code. Is this enough? Could you share what you have done? Thanks in advance
I have skills in software and website development process,
currently i am working as freelancer!
i want to start my simple IT Firm with small team to complete an one e - commerce project,
and i don't know how to undertake projects from abroad ,
only having projects around in my area that are all little projects,
fund wise i really back,
so i need investors to invest my future projects
so please kindly provide your valuable advises to find investors and projects!
thanks in advance
The first thing you will need is a well prepared business plan. No one is going to invest in a company unless they can see some profits coming back to them. As for projects, you need to find customers that need the skills you are offering. Take a look at some of the articles at http://www.codeproject.com/KB/work/[^], for further suggestions.
So, may be you can give me some advices about it? What you want to see in outsourcing company? If you will hire remote people, how you will find them? freelance sites, google, forums, something else? Can you know another websites full of IT people, where I can talk about it as well?
May be you are an outsourcer? Can you write your success story? What you did on start?
Hi, I'm not an IT expert so I would be the wrong person to give you any technical advice, but I do have a beauty shop and have successfully created an online business
Currently I am selling around 40% of my products online and that number is increasing month by month. I wasn't always successful with my webshop though, I failed quite badly on my first try. At first I had problems with my webhost, didn't really have a very good website and didn't rank very high on search engines so my shop just wasn't generating enough visitors. So after about one year I decided to take my online shop down and give it a completely new try.
The second attempt worked much better. Looking back, one of the simplest but most important factors was that I did an extrensive keyword research and managed to register a domain name on here that exactly matched one of the most frequent search terms for my product line. Another factor that was really important on being successful online is knowing your audience. I decided to contact my loyal regular customers, told them about my project building an online shop and asked them what they would like to see included in it. What I found is that I had to keep the shop and the website design neat, simple and easy to navigate. I also only included around 10% of my most popular products in the store into the webshop in order to keep it simple and managable.
I'm aware that you are working in a very different field, but maybe you will find some of my experience useful. As for getting found in search engines, I would suggest you to focus on a maximum of 5 or 6 frequently used search terms in your field and try getting a matching domain name beacuse they tend to rank almost automatically on search engines.
Also being stationed in Moscow it would be better to focus on the Russian market since from my experience most clients like to hire a local company. And since Moscow is a huge city with over 12 million inhabitants, you have a huge potential customer base in Moscow alone.
Hope you find some of the advice useful, eventhough I can't give you any IT and web dev specific advice
I don't think there are very capable people on those sites. Most of the projects I was passing on due to my own work-loads were big projects and never completed because of the lack of professional experience by the applicant.
And two, I think most people who use those sites looking for work, are also not as professional as they so astute make themselves look. To me, it is a site for those who want to make a quick buck by doing a half-ass job.
A professional job posting system would and should test your authenticity of your qualifications before allowing you to apply to job positions. There are many job postings offering good pay for professional contractors.
I have had mixed results (as a vendor) using services from companies like Elance, and I agree with your assessment here.
Elance, specifically, was purchased by Upwork not too long ago, and I see that Upwork introduces features for testing and validating the authenticity of freelancers' qualifications. Do you see this as a step in the right direction?
Do you think it will have a measurable impact on the quality of freelancers (and/or vendor experience) using this platform?
It is because for Big projects needs to work in teams, So it can't be given to individuals and also communication problems etc.
It is a fact that many business projects fail either partially or completely. Many studies demonstrate this. And I suspect that many of those failures are attributed to project management failures.
Thus a project manager probably isn't the best source to evaluate why a broad category of projects fail.
Below is one stat for Apache server, which is a public domain and open source server. From it 60% usage from the top (usage) 10 million web sites in the world. How do those "project managers" explain that success? (There are a vast number of addons for apache.) There are many more examples of this.
One reason individual projects fail is just due to lack of interest when there are very few participants. An initial project needs several dedicated enthusiasts who spend years actively supporting a project until many people start using it. If the first doesn't happen then the second wont.
I am not going to research it in detail but I know for a fact that there used to be a free shopping cart system written in perl. There might be something now in a different language. You can try googling for that.
i am a software developer in Visual basic 6.0. i want to know that may i need any licencee from microsoft to develop any application in vb 6. if yes, please let me inform that from where i can can purchase this paper licence, because microsoft has already stopped the services from vb 6.
VB 6.0 is long dead so I doubt that Microsoft would care what you developed with it. You should also be aware that no business is likely to want to buy applications developed in such an old and unsupported language.
I've working alone in my web business for quite long, and I'm willing to start a bigger project that will need to involve more coders.
I hire frelancer from time to time, but I will need now more than one coder and designer working together in the same project. What could be the better way to manage this team of remote workers? is there any web solutions to manage that? How can I do it knowing that they will not steal the project?
Check out CloudForge. It supports both svn and git for scm. The basic version is free and allows unlimited users and private repos. The paid version has access control and permissions. It sounds like that is what you are looking for? It also has an Agile tracker and other tools for project management. Hope this helps.
well you need to find people who are into this as much as you are i am also in same kind of trouble i am also starting an e commerce startup but i am also short on work force if you like you can give me an email on email@example.com so we can see if we can help each other
how, and what python can help me setup a business?
It is most unlikely that Python can help you set up a business. Starting in business you first need to find an idea that you can market and people will pay for. It could be a manufactured product, food that is grown, or some type of service, but you need the idea and a business plan first.
A business is selling either a product and/or a service.
You must come up with the idea then do some work towards creating the product and/or service. Then you must sell either the product and/or service to someone or even sell the idea to someone.
Python, or any programming language can be used to create the product, to create the service, to manage the business and/or to manage the service. It can also be used to create a demonstration which represents how the product and/or service would work if it was fully implemented.

Simple question...Is Microsoft Security Essentials sufficient AV protection on development workstaions used to compile and sign executables?
One of my biggest fears has always been that a system gets compromised and we unwittingly send out a batch of infected updates. I am currently in a situation where a customer's AV identified 5 of our executables as being infected and quarantined them. In trying to resolve the situation, their network administrator asked for those files as a zipped email attachment which I sent. She promptly replied that the attachment had been stripped due to detection of a virus! I have checked these files with both MSE and AVG with no problem. I have applied for an evaluation of the AV the customer is using (lightspeed) both to replicate the issue, and to find out if the claim is legitimate but am still waiting. BTW, any executable we ship is digitally signed.
Simple question...Is Microsoft Security Essentials sufficient AV protection on development workstaions used to compile and sign executables?
Simple answer; nothing will be sufficient to give guarantees.
Install 10+ AV's, and you'll still receive "updates" of virus-definitions. There's no way to eliminate the threat completely.
FWIW, using Avast! Antivirus, nothing more. The thing that protects it best, is to be paranoid on who touches your build-server.
If it's really a big issue, then install a second build-server in a remote area. Upload the sources bij FTP, generate a hashcode of the binaries and compare them with a hash of the local binaries. If they stop matching, "something" changed.

What exactly does this mean? Also, you will find any information about registering a business much faster if you contact your local chamber of commerce or a local solicitor/accountant. Rules for setting up businesses are very specific to the country where you want to work.
It depends on the country in which you wish to register your software company. In most countries there are 2 types of formations: 1. a partnership or a self owned business. In such case, you are the legal entity behind your software house, even if you use another name (which is referred to as "trade name" or "doing business as..."). The 2nd type is a limited liability company, or a corporation. In such case, the company becomes a legal entity and you, being a share holder, hold a limited liability over the company's operations.
You have to comply with a lot of statutory regulation and registration. But getting all and starting a business is impossible in India, atleast in my place, kerala. You go ahead with some of the few below and comply with others as you grow up.
1. You can get a MSME registration from DIC (District Industries Center). This will help you fetch locations in software parks, subsidized electricity bills. You can also avail investment subsidy. This will be of the tune of around 10-20% of your investments.
2. You must a registration from the Local Administration. (Corporation, Municipality, Panchayath)etc
3. If you plan to employee, then you have to comply with ESI & PF
4. If you will be have large turnovers then you will have to take a Service Tax Registration
5. If you wish to sell your softwares in CD, or other object then you will also have to take a Sales Tax Registration
6. You will have to take a current account in Bank, if you wish to have some foreign remmitance or sales.
7. You can take IE code from DGFT for exporting your softwares. You will be able claim income tax benefits, lot of other benefits.
8. Else you come down to Kerala and do a enquiry at our startup village, rest will be taken care of...
