Where to get help RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    Sorry if this is a bit off topic...

    These forums are excellent for help with specific issues, but I'm at the stage I could do with getting someone in to look through my code & propose "better ways" of doing things. Being self taught I'm sure I have a lot of "workarounds" because I don't know the "proper" way.

    How would I go about finding someone to do this for me? The application is with SQL server. I'm in the UK - the Midlands.

  • Have you already had the cops (FX and Style) look at your code?

    Sorry? I don't know what you mean.

  • Google "fxcop" or "stylecop".  Take the first hit.

  • Ok thanks have now downloaded it - just 15,000 issues to look at!
    However most of them seem irrelevant - such as using "ds" instead of "DS"

    But the real issue I have is that there are many "right" ways to do things, I'm pretty sure in a lot of cases I haven't picked the "best" way, because of my lack of knowledge.
    It would still be my preference to hire someone in to look through the code & show me where/how I should make changes - but I have no idea how/where to start looking for someone

  • Hmya, be careful about that.  That's a judgment call in itself to call something irrelevant.  It wasn't irrelevant to whomever added the check to the code.  The reasoning behind the rulez is well documented, somewhere.

    You can hire somebody through a headhunter or consulting agency.  Look at job sites like if you don't know any, they are always looking to hire somebody.
