I'm a leader of a group of 10 mobile developers. We're now looking for someone to take care of serverside programming. We're deciding what would be the best solution. We need to put out an ad for programmer, but first we need to decide in which language he will be working in.
What we're putting together is a paying system for cellphones and therefore we need a central system on server which will then connect to payment processing(like authorize.net or something) and to phones and interact with different client accounts. We're wondering if it would be best to look for C programmer or .Net programmer or even something else. It's important for us that system is very secure(money transactions) and flexible for connection to gateway API's or later direct to different banks aswell as capable of good connection to varioud mobile phones where animations and sounds will be played. There will be different platforms of cellphones, in the beginning only iphone, nokia, android and later more. For those phones without special app, our system should be accessed thru mobile browser so it will be connected to mobile version of our site. There should be a site connected to our central system for computer access too, where user has all the options and functions showed..
I hope you can help us by suggesting if it's better to have C or .Net framework and why?
And if there's any programmer out there who wants to be a part of our project please PM!
Best regards everyone,
