Very slightly offtopic but Im sure of
interest to the group as a whole
RentACoder.com--the custom software auction site
http://www.rentacoder.com is built around the fact that there are more
developers worldwide to a ratio of small oneoff jobs and hence you
can get a developer really cheap for that one off task

Here is an example of AS/400 related job that a coder can bid for to
secure the job--the bids cannot exceed $99 in this case! thats aboubt
90% lower then what I would personly quote for this job

Job
We use ODBC to link to an IBM AS/400. We need to use VBA to launch an AS400
program. In particular, we need to tell the AS400 to run an AS400 program
using VBA. We need both sides of the code. We have been successful in
launching queries on AS400 data, but we to be able to launch a RPG progam.

 Deliverables:
Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well
as complete source code of all work done. Complete copyrights to all work
purchased. Need to verify that the code works.






1.I have picked up on an interesting buisness model (www.stfb.com)
www.stfb.com make a generic Accounting packages with a VB front end.
What makes www.stfb.com interesting is that along with end product you
recieve the VB source code and you are free to modify and reuse the code!
prices are VB6 front end -MS Access backend $1499,VB6 front end -MS SQL
Server backend $1999, VB6 front end -Oracle Access backend $4999.

2.They use RentACoder and have a job advertised to convert package to
Apollobackend-- bid range $0-$999 max.In other words each
package would have cost around a $1000 to build plus packaging and
marketing costs--they can turm there $1000 investment into a 100 grand
easily with a few sales.

Im after opions on RentACoder as a buisness model
thanks in advance
