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.
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.
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...

at it simplest, you need good product/s and a way of getting them in front of potential customers. A way of getting the products in front of your customers, is to go where they're looking for them. Online is great in that respect - you can target keywords.
In terms of products, depending on your interest, you may be better to try to determine what the market needs then create that product.
An application I'm writing is using code/libraries that are licensed under free software licenses; specifically I have code that is licensed under the Apache License V2, GNU GPL V2, and the CPOL V1.02. From what I understand, if the customer request it, I would have to provide them with the source code under the free software licenses, but I don't want to provide the source code for my entire application.
My question is, if I take the three pieces of source code covered under the free software licenses and place them in individual libraries (DLLs) could I then apply a custom (proprietary) license to the rest of my application? This way if someone request the source code under one of the three free software licenses, I can provide the source code just for that library without having to release the source code for the rest of my application.
Would this be appropriate and inline with the license requirements of the free software licenses? Keep in mind that I'm not marketing my software as a free software/open source, but would like to use these libraries and be in compliance with their licenses.
Thanks in advance for any help and/or clarification you can provide. I've read over the licenses several times (as well as articles on them) and I;m still a little confused over the requirements as it applies to using it in closed commercial software.
The FAQ is quite clear: If you don't distribute source code, then what you are distributing cannot meaningfully be called "Open Source". So you cannot claim it to be open source if you do not make all the source code freely available.
One of these days I'm going to think of a really clever signature.
It is not necessary to publish the source code. But when someone who bought your solution asks for the source code, you have to provide it to him.
Better contact the authors of the code you use and get a different license from them, or find source code which is published under a different license.
Integration with project management and ease of collaboration with developers.
Also, when requirement are linked to "Work Items" that dev are working on, it is then easy to track the overall progress of a particular requirement..
Sometimes, when a developer is working on a certain item of the requirement, he can discover things that would prompt the change of the requirement (adapting it or enhencing it).
Push Framework - now released !
I have a company based in the middle east. Jordan in exact. I tried to make something new, and yes we built a new technology. A new application builder that really will reduce the programming into 30 - 40 % comparing with the traditional programming.
The problem that we are in Jordan, a very poor country. Even we made a very good technology, but we now are out of cash.
So we think in selling the technology for other parties. So I am asking for advise how we can do that and who is the best choice for us to try to sell the technology for.
