    You do realize that $100 may not buy you more than an hour of time, right?

    Re: looking to hire best vb6 coder on this forum

    Yeah I know consultant/programmers that charge more than $100 an hour but I am curious who is the best VB6 coder on this forum. Not me, but I only charge $95hr.

    EDIT: btw - I was just joking, I'm not interested, I'm retired.

    I don't know how coders are paid in America or other countries. But in my country, the average pay, I presume, is around US$1200~1400 per month. That is, working 8 hours a day with occasional overtime, and 2 days off per week. Some low-end coders can be paid as low as US$600~700 per month, which is only enough for "just alive".

    I am curious about how they are paid in your country.

    If it were I attempting to get someone to create a program for me, I would Shirley spell out the requirements/needs in my OP (Original Post)
    If you have not clarified your needs/requirements yet (in advance of someone agreeing to do it for $100), then the person agreeing to do it, is a fool.

    Re: looking to hire best vb6 coder on this forum

    $100 is not much so perhaps if it is a very small and very simple project maybe you could find someone willing to do it, much more likely to get a novice to do it and someone from an area where wages are low.

    And as mentioned above you need to give details if you seriously want someone to do it and also you may want to rethink getting the best programmer to do it and look to find one that is capable of doing it as the best programmers will likely take no interest in something that pays only $100

    we have a few "professionals" here, yes, but that doesnt mean someone with lesser knowledge dont know how to do it.
    its all about what you want and need. and with a $100 budget, maybe you need to be happy with anyone.

    I see that you started with wanting the best all the way down to just anyone will do. Maybe if we keep going at this you might get down to my level

    Wow that is a bit on the low side here. 20 years ago as an entry level programmer I was making over 2600 a month. Top programmers were making quite a bit more than that even then.

    Re: looking to hire best vb6 coder on this forum

    i say you should write a bit what you need and all that. what do you expect your program to do, how will it looks etc.
    its better then just ask anyone to do it, maybe more will feel comfortable to help out.
    im not applying, as im very busy with my own projects and job.

    Wow...old school!

    Loved that movie, though.

    As to the question, I'd have to say that I agree with what Bobbles said. Anybody who is good at coding probably has a certain amount of experience, and anybody with a certain amount of experience has some experience with both feature creep and wildly unrealistic expectations. From my perspective, $100 isn't enough to get excited about. I'm probably one of the lower paid US programmers on this forum, and a job worth doing for $100 is a job worth doing for free. By that I mean that the job would have to be SUPER easy, or it would have to be super interesting and pretty quick, or it would have to be for somebody who I wanted to help out. In all of those cases, I wouldn't take the money anyways.

    However, I've also seen people ask for simple things that happened to be both simple to describe, and totally impossible to do, often enough that I wouldn't even consider a blind project even if I were looking for extra cash...which I'm not.

    Re: looking to hire best vb6 coder on this forum

    It often costs more than $100 just for the time to figure out what is being asked for. I think it is fair to say that most question threads here that get an answer are worth far more than $100 in a fair market.

    I know I've got answers that have saved me hours of programming/research. I've also spent hours on helping someone, if it interest me and maybe more important I felt they were also working very hard at trying to solve the problem.

    So maybe provide some relevant information and maybe someone will take an interest.

    Re: looking to hire best vb6 coder on this forum

    I helped a member here once and got so interested in it my self I wound up writing the whole project and it wasn't any small task to say the least and it had a lot of challenging parts (things that I had to learn and ask questions about). When I was finished I almost didn't give it to the OP because I wanted it for myself but I gave in and turned it over to him. From what I learned later he made a few bucks on it.

    Re: looking to hire best vb6 coder on this forum

    Is anyone still interested in this topic. General small problems in China can be solved for 20 dollars, the smallest being tens of dollars. The most is usually several thousand dollars. More needs to be turned into a complete project to operate, the cost is about tens of thousands of dollars.
    If calculated on an hourly or monthly basis, Huawei's salary averages 800000 yuan a year.
    chinesr:还有人对这个话题感兴趣吗。在中国一般的小问题,几百块钱可以得到解决,最小的就是几十块钱。最多的一般几千块钱。更多的就需要变成一个完整的项目去操作了,那费用也就是几万块钱左右。
    如果按照小时或者月薪计算,华为公司的工资平均80万人民币一年。

    It was a fun little thread, though. I wonder what happened to the project?

    I am a Chinese. What should I do if I want to take orders at some foreign forums or outsourcing websites? What website is better?
    Such as co-developing code or writing some module functions or completing a small project.
    chinese:如果想在外国的一些论坛或者外包网站接一点订单,应该怎么操作?什么网站比较好呢?
    比如共同开发代码或者写一些模块功能或者完成一个小项目。

    Converts to 150K CAD or 115K USD

    That's not bad money.

    Now we have another SARS-like infectious disease in China. From urban to rural areas, every village and every village is completely isolated. Every two days can go out alone to buy food.
    It will start to work after two days, and there may be a large-scale outbreak at that time.
    Now we really need to make some money online to take orders. I don't know what website can make money by ordering online, thank you.

    I have no idea, but that's an interesting point you make. The news is full of stories about the virus in China, but the impact it has on people's lives over there is just beginning to come out. The quarantines must be terrible for people.

    You might start a thread in the General Developer forum about online work. I have no direct experience with that, but I do remember a few people discussing it a few years back, so it's a topic that others know about.
