    10 Things To Know BEFORE Hiring A Freelance Programmer - Stay away from...

    (Page 5 of 5 )

    Law 9: Stay away from GPL, open source, and re-used code AT ALL COSTS!

    This is a biggie. Make it clear you do not want code reused from other scripts. Obviously if the coder uses parts of someone else's script you are in violation of copyright laws.

    On the other hand there is free software out there called GPL (GNU Public License) which is free to use but only if you make the source code of your entire software product available as well. That is definitely NOT what you want.

    Law 10: Your software will break over time.

    This is just a fact. If you're having some desktop software created in C++ the code might not compile correctly on a different compiler in a few years. Some software written in version 1.0 of Microsoft's .NET runtime already breaks when you run it on computers with version 1.1 (argh!)

    Don't even get me started about PHP. When PHP releases new versions the new ways of doing things are not always backwards compatible. Depending on which modules or security patches a given web host has installed, certain things may not work as well. That's life.
