A Very Important Tool A Computer Programmer Must Have

We are now facing the age of the internet. Everyone who wants to ride on this must do something to maximize your profit.

If you want your name to stand out in the crowd, then follow these simple steps:

1. Build your own website.

Building a website today is very cheap. It will only cost you around $7.95/month for webhosting and $9.95/year for a domain name. Some webhosting company cost only $6.95/month, but I do not recommend them because after a year when they saw the increase of traffic on your website they will offer you again a higher plan.

For the best webhosting choose Hostgator.com. They have a good review and I highly recommend them.

If you need help to setup your website, send me an email at the Contact page.

2. Sign-up for PayPal account.

The purpose of this article is to drive you in making money online as a freelancer. So, most of the companies like RentACoder and Elance are using PayPal to send money to their coder. You can also use PayPal to send payments online. Example, if you want to hire a coder in RentACoder.com for subcontracting then you will most likely need a PayPal account.

It is very easy to setup and all you need is a credit card.

3. A Book(s).

This is very important if you are starting to become a programmer. Although you can search for tutorial in the internet but because of so much information and it is sometimes misleading in your part, you need a guide which will teach you from beginning.
Below are my recommended books:

Visual Basic.NET

Beginning VB 2008 Databases: From Novice to Professional (Beginning: from Novice to Professional)

Visual Basic 6.0

Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 Professional Step by Step, Second Edition (Step By Step (Redmond, Wash.).)


Beginning PHP and MySQL: From Novice to Professional, Third Edition


Head First Java, 2nd Edition

If you want to recommend a book please give a comment below and I will include it here.

4. A Video Tutorial.

If you find it difficult to study programming without visual aid then I suggest you visit this article:

Learn Visual Studio the Easiest Way using Video Tutorial.

5. A Code Snippet.

Code snippet is a procedure or function which you can use in your program to perform certain action.

This code snippet is for visual basic 6.0 only.

Code Snippet

You can also search the internet for other languages. If you have one please comment below and I will include it here.

This article will be effective only if you follow the steps provided here.

Thanks for sharing applications. Great work really!

Can you share some application that tracks software costs and license renewal costs. Or if you know some link which is close to doing something like this.

Thanks, UDAY

sir. i would like to thank you very much for the source codes you are posting. but i want to say now is just there is no any project, wich is developed with C# ,posted yet. so please add any project done with C# if you can. and help me the database design (the tables design) in my project on University Registrar System by using C#. thanks in advance!

It's very easy to translate the code to c# but I do not have time to do the same work with two version.

As of the meantime I'll stick with VB.NET version.

hmm.... i wonder if it is considered also a tool for a programmer behind your picture? hehehe! Anyway do u have any idea on how XAML works in vb.net? also what is the control used for networking like the winsock in old vb6 in vb.net. I download ur internet cafe billing program , and nice piece of software. :) i do have a suggestion on the time monitoring .... why dont u used GetTickCount function for accurate time monitoring instead of timer control. I am planning to build my own cafe system to used in my future business someday in vb.net 2008 using the MYSQL so i hope u could share some snippet of yours... and most of all share the tools behind ur pic.... heheheh! ( I wonder who is that lady in white....)

Actually that picture was taken from the beach. :)

May be you mean XML? XML works like a database. Except it is use only for small storage like configuration.

Winsock is no longer supported VB.NET. Socket related functions can be accessed under System.Net.Sockets.

Please read the MSDN for better understanding.

For the GetTickCount function I don't think It can help. I don't use that. If you can substitute it with timer control please don't hesitate to modify my program.

As of now I don't have code snippet for Cafe Billing System. I do have however a hot babes like at the back of my picture. hehehe

how to get rid of rounding off in SQL SERVER ? i do have a stored procedure that calculate the series of numbers this numbers are in type of float. example: 15491.3 = 2700+288.95+6134.25+6368.05 the expected result would be 15491.25 but the result display of SQL SERVER is 15491.3. Which is wrong specially dealing in accounting. Do you know why and how to get rid of it? By d way i really mean XAML it is actually in XML format but what i mean is that how it used in vb.net. Actually i thought that this feature of .net can easily modify the common control found in .net. i dnt know if my assumption is correct.

At first, I like to say that your post is valuable to me. But I am not clear why you suggest to read vb 6 after vb 2008 is recommended to be read. Is it necessary to read vb6 at the time of vb2005 and 2008 released? It makes a beginner like me confused. Hope you can explain. Thanks [email protected]

Any sample code for client-server application in VB.Net 2008 express edition? Just the basic. I have 2 pcs (peer to peer) and I just wanted to create client-server application, something exchanging data, something like msaccess split database? or file-server?

Let say, I have one PC and 1 Laptop, then i would like to access datas(database) from PC, then how can we materialised the situation? They are connected thru peer to peer connection, sharing information, I've already removed the firewall, and i want to use vb.net 2008 express edition in order to create client-server program, how about your examples? like Inventory?, Hotel Reservation? Payroll System? Enrollment System? etc etc. Is this client-server application? can we deploy this in client server environment??? or Csn we deploy this in peer to peer environment???


Best regards, Jhun Cabas

Hi, i need a help regarding my project. I want someone will make me even a simple reservation program using JAVA GUI. I have already made my own program on reservation but it is DOS-based, i want to convert it into GUI using Java still. But it will take a long time for me to study GUI. JAVA GUI is my most hated programming language. But it is required to use. I suppose to use another language but java is being imposed. i will pay you compensation if you will help me. just choose, you will make your own reservation system using JAVA GUI or you will simply convert my newly-made DOS-based program into JAVA Gui. Rate of compensation is different. Take Note: Topic of Reservation System should be related to heaps, or somewhat similar to first-in, first-priority. Please reach me: mobile: 09081110689 email: [email protected] tnx, arjie..
