    so im looking for good programmer to make commercial software...

    well im asking you if we could make bot, similar to SENUKE, but little cheaper so ppl would go on our bot instead...

    ok i know what ur thinking now, this guy is nuts

    well i dont mean this to happen over night, it will be project that will first start with linkwheel software, and then gradually build up

    i can take care of customer support, i will be the seller, you will be the programer, and a few more guys if you want, we can sell it at bhw and we could take 50/50, and also setup affiliate and things like that

    just let me know what do you think...

    i think this can bring us money for rest of our lives literally, because bot as massive as senuke, brings home the bacon :)

    ive got all plans on what to do, so hit me up with PM's those who are interested

    regards,
    bizilux

    development of software like senuke costs several thousands of dollars.
    in your case this is a start up cost that bears programmer (that should be also a designer and tester). no one who can really implement it will not be interested.
    but this could be done in this way: project will be divided into parts (by spam targets), programmer will get cost of development for each part as soon as he finish this part. then he will get 50% from sales for copyright and further support of software.
    this is the only decent scheme and i can do this with scripting language (php).
    cheers

    So you want a programmer that can create a program that is going to take hours and hours of coding, and all you do is ''sell it and do customer support''? And you're even wondering why no one is replying?

    Look, if someone is smart enough to code a SENuke like program he/she is also smart enough to sell it and do customer support.

    JV's like this - you do all the programming and I do the ''rest'' - are simply retarded.

    thats exactly what i was thinking...

    first i wanted to go for linkwheel software, and sell it as standalone version, and then build from here different modules, like pinger, rss bot, forum account creator and so on :)

    ill hit you up with pm

    I was thinking that anyone who could actually do programming should build the program and use it for themselves and just make loads of cash and aintain their advantage.

    I can handle this given necessary things:
    1) Pay per hour (using odesk)
    2) Necessary Hardware (Laptop/mac)
    3) Necessary software apis. (which are free..)

    There's a open source module of such program (Selenium).
    We can build upon such framework so development time will be lesser.

    About me:
    >> 12 years C# and .NET experience
    >> Coded more than 100+ products/projects
    >> Have certifications like MCTS (Microsoft certified technology specialist), MCPD(Microsoft certified professional developer)

    I'm going to post something that I learned while searching for a technical co-founder for my startup. Please don't feel like I'm being rude by posting this, as that is definitely not my intention.

    I'm not a developer, but I've spent a lot of time talking with them about this type of partnership. Here's how experienced developers have told me they see it when they read a post similar to this one, or have someone approach them with an idea:

    While this is a simplified example, it demonstrates why developers usually don't want to work with guys like us unless we can bring something *really significant* to the table-- experience, money, or a proven track record of being able to completely crush it with sales. Usually, to get anyone other than amateur developers excited, you at least two of those.

    Another thing that I have found is that money is a poor motivator. I know this is counter-intuitive, but research has backed this up. (I know, I can't quite wrap my mind around it either, but it's true!)

    The way they see it, they are an entire factory all in one person and they are in high demand. If they are going to put their heart and soul into something, they need to know it'll pay off-- not just financially but also in the satisfaction that they have been able to create something great.


    I got a developer on my team for my startup by offering 3 things:

    --I had already found a designer, and many developers hate that part
    --I was a 'marketing guy'
    --I brought a little money to the table

    Doing all these things helped even the playing field and made my search for a developer a lot easier.

    Good luck, and I wish you the best in your project!
