I am into VB6 for last 8 years and also amongst top 50 coders at Rent a coder. VB6 will survie for another 5 years from here for sure but there is no growth left in it. Also .Net and VB6 are very different and your working in VB6 would not help you much with .Net. So I would advise you for .Net instead of VB6. Although I myself spend most of my time in VB6 and my first love is VB6, I feel its time to adopt .Net as it is the way Microsoft is heading after Vista's release.rajesh_nk22 said:Hi
I have joined company where VB6 is used in developing games, I want to know is there any scope left for VB6 programmers. Should I leave this job now and join .NET company or I should work here for sometime and then to think of move.
The first thing that you have to be very sure about is the freelancing is not a part time job. I am a freelancer for last many years and am successful at RAC only because I am full time available to my clients. At RAC you get all kinds of projects right from graphics to projects in languages like VB, .net and php.subratabera said:Hello vikaksethi,
Please tell us something about Rent a coder...
Many programmers are there who want to participate in such projects. I want to know something about the project details, expertise level, programming language etc. Please explain a little bit about such online jobs...
Thanks in advance.
LOL...This is a tricky one. I am ranked 44th amongst 1,60,000 odd programmers at RAC. To maintain that position I sure have to make more than 1 lakh per month. But it does take a lot of organized hours working from home.rajesh_nk22 said:vikas, i wanted to know how much money u make just to get idea.

subratabera said:Hello vikas,
Just one more question. You said that you are at 44th place at RAC. That proves your superiority. I am very much impressed and want to know more about how you have reached at this level (I mean programming level). What is your learning procedure, qualification etc. etc. I hope you will share this information and I am sure this will inspire many of us...
I am serious. Search google for .Net resources. World is full of .Net sites now.jal_desai said:kya baat kar rahe ho yaar?... my heart sanked... i just learnt VB 6 in my last semester and just fell in love with it... Can u give me more information on .NET..... I have heard of it but didnt bothered abt it much but now i am really serious abt it... (give necessary links if possible)...
ASP like VB6 is a dead language too. May not survive for long. How many years of experience do you have in VB6 and ASP and how good are you on scale 1 to 10?rajesh_nk22 said:expertise in : vb 6, sql server, delphi
i forget to mention ASP
Thanks for your kind words. Sacle 6 may not be enough. You should at least 8 when you go to a site like RAC. Reason - the professionals on other side talk with you or chat with you and any comment from your side that you can not do or anything not convincing to them leads to wrong impression and negative markings in the end. However, having scared you - RAC is worth a try if you can commit 100% to it.rajesh_nk22 said:vikas, u r really a nice person. I wish you were my friend.
VB6 & ASP experience of two years and i will rate myscale to 6 on scale

Truly impressed. I have myself attempted to become a work-at-home programmer but to my bad luck i am truly disorganised and light headed(dont read that as a drunk )
In the end we humble beings from the lower rug of life are blessed with ur ominious presence at the top of the stairs. Peace.
