  1. In Topic: could it be possible to write in c# this fuction?

    Posted 20 Apr 2015

    Well, first of all, do you have to recreate this in C#? If you're running your program on an environment that already has cURL installed, you can "shell out" and let cURL still do the work, by using Process.Start.

    If you can't do that, well, you'll need to know what the .cfg file contains. Because you can't just give a C# program a CURL cfg file and expect it to know what to do with it. You'll need to know what each option in the CFG file does, and how to recreate that in C#.

    You'll need to look into the HttpWebRequest and HttpWebResponse classes. You might be able to get away with using the WebRequest or the HttpRequest classes.

    But first you need to be able to explain what CURL is doing. What verb is it using? What kind of encoding? Stuff like that, the stuff that your CFG file defines.
  2. In Topic: Where can I find developers to work for equity?

    I have an app potentially worth billions...but nobody wants to work for equity unfortunately

    Let me explain why nobody wants to work for equity. It's because everyone on those sites have seen this post before. Not from you, but from every other person who thinks they have the next billion dollar idea. I've been doing this on forums for years, and I've seen literally hundreds of "billion dollar ideas" from people who "can't pay you now, but you'll be paid in shares. You'll make tons of money if you just work for free now!" And they do, and then they never get paid, because the idea isn't nearly as special or original as the idea man thought.

    I'm not kidding about the hundreds part. Before apps were a big thing, it was "the next Facebook". I've even worked on one. Now it's apps. Now everyone has an idea for an app that's going to make millions (or billions, in your case), but no skills to build it themselves.

    The point is, most people aren't willing to work for free in exchange for later shares, because most people don't believe there will ever be any future money. They're not willing to commit significant time out of their lives to do something that they don't believe will be successful.

    Keep this in mind when you do find a programmer to work for equity: you get what you pay for. Anyone who agrees to do this kind of work is likely a college student with almost no experience. Which can work great, or can mean you get 1/4 the way done with your idea and they can't get anything else done because they've never encountered real-world programming problems and don't know how to do anything but go on forums like this and try to get people like us to solve the problem for them.

    So, with that rant out of the way, here's what I can suggest: learn to program. You're ambitious and young, smart enough to come up with a business idea...programming's never been easier than it is now. App development is challenging, but rewarding. Pick a platform (iOS or Android, probably don't want to focus on both at once, too different and too much to learn at once), and start learning programming.

    That way, if you do make an app that takes off, you don't have to share any of the profit.

    var when it doesn't break readability.

    That's how I work.

    Pretty much this.

    If var makes the code difficult to understand I won't use it. But, I'm also a believer that naming conventions should produce names that are descriptive enough for you to infer it's type from the name.

    The names of the variables, methods etc should make the code readable not necessarily the way you declare them.

    Can I get a quick example of where var IntCount = 10 is simpler than int Count = 10?

    Why assume either would be what we'd use? Firstly, it would be count rather than Count, if you're following MS best practices, but that aside, count is clearly an integer, even if you can't see the declaration. If you're using a double/float for counting, you're doing it wrong. If it were a value that needed to be measured in floating point, I'd name it something else, like total.

    But I don't believe that names should carry all the information about a variable. Because then you end up with names like i_Count or s_someText. You know, bad, ugly names that we used when we didn't have an IDE providing metadata for us.

    Since I'm essentially never not in VS, I can mouseover any variable I care to know more information about.

    Therefore, I make my object names carry logical information. So you know what the variable is doing. If you need to know it's type, F12 is bound to "Go To Definition", and mousing over gives you the type.

    and aren't in a VS environment

    I, and many other .NET professionals I know, are essentially never coding outside the VS environment. I honestly can't think of a reason I would want to do that. Every company I've worked for has had licenses. If they didn't, I'd find a company that did.
