  1. Don't worry, there's no need to apologize over this. You where making a joke and I was just defending my point.
  2. The college course was just an example. I also told you that I know of a lot of places where C# is used for web development. One good example is the company I work for. Here all web development is done with two technologies: C# and Java. Now you may be right that C# isn't the beest tool for this job. But C# is a powerful language and it can be used to get the job done so I don't think its the screwdriver you where talking about on your previous post. I'm not a developer at my company and I'm not a C# developer either, I'm just talking from what I've seen and know.
  3. I would love to work on any project but I'm not the most well-versed guy in terms of programming skills, but still if there's room for a newbie on the boat I would really like to join your team. In terms of web programming I have some PHP background, I also know HTML and CSS and am learning Javascript so I think I can help (sort of) on both back and front end. Just let me know what can I do to hep you.
  4. There's a quote I like that says "Fail Early, Fail Fast, Fail Often". There's a lot to be learned from failure, the important thing is to keep an eye wide open on what went wrong so it won't happen again on the next try. Welcome on board!
  5. So you are saying C# isn't a good tool for the job? Because really one of the uses it has is for web development. ASP.NET is C# (ok, it can also be VB and Visual C++) and it's widely used. Maybe not on well known web scripts like Wordpress and Drupal but it's used on a lot of enterprise environments. When I was on college, people studying Computer Science did a lot of web development with C# too.
  6. I'm more of a self-paced learner too. The way MOOCs are organized does not makes much sense to me because I don't see why the content should be divided by weeks instead of already available since day one. Maybe that's why I haven't finished the ones I started, like the one I mentioned on the first post. Maybe this time things will be different for me.
  7. I haven't but of course it is possible. Check out this tutorials to do what you are looking for: ASP.NET Web Examples in C# and VB.
  8. Hi Nathan, It's a Red5 application I'm working on. I'm working locally on my computer but wanted to share and show my work to a friend and that's why I was looking for a free VPS. I've been searching around and it looks like there's no such thing so I think my best option is to just sign up for a service like dyndns and host the app on my home server. Thanks for the answer and offer
  9. Nathan already gave you a good answer. I'll just try to elaborate it a little more. A shared hosting usually has more constrained resources so you are limited by the amount of RAM and CPU you have available (besides bandwdith and hard disk space) because you share those resources with other people hosting their sites there. On a VPS you are still sharing the resourses of the host server with another virtual servers, but usually you have bigger quotas than with shared hosting. Also on a VPS you can control every single aspect of your server so if you want to install a custom app you can do
  10. Today I got an email from Coursera announcing that Programming Mobile Applications for Android Handheld Systems: Part 1 was open once again. I took this class last year but didn't finish it because of lack of time. I'm going to give this one another try and hopefully this time I will finish it. This is just one example of the wide range of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) available for free. I just wanted to know if you have ever taken one of this courses before and what your experiences have been with them. A couple years ago I enrolled at openlearning's Computer 1: The Art of Prog
  11. I've got a question that may be related to another post (Recommend me a free hosting) but I thought it would be better to have it as a separate thread here. The thing is I am working on a web app I want to test but a shared hosting (free or paid) won't work for me because there I cannot install a custom application like mine. That's why I'm looking for a VPS and would really like to get one for free because I just want it for testing purposes. I don't mind if it's just for a month or even for a week. Any of you know of some where to find a free VPS?
  12. Why is that? Godaddy doesn't get preference on that kind of deals? I would have think otherwise, being Godaddy a big name registrar and all. If Godaddy isn't a good registrar for that kind of operations, which one do you recommend?
  13. 10 Mb Up and something like 2MB Down at Mexico on Cable and paying $18 a month for this one
  14. I have one site hosted with them. I too got one of those $0.99 deals for the domain and one year of hosting but I'm not planning on renewing it because the regular price for their hosting is $9 per month and that was a project that didn't took off like I thought so I see no point on renewing it. Also, I think there are some other providers that offer the exact same thing for less money.
  15. Hey digitalsatori I wasn't aware of live preview for Sublime Text. That's another great thing about that text editor. There are lots of plugins to extend its capabilities.
