Please try again later. Paperback Verified Purchase. The author has obviously built a bot for himself. Butler assumes that all the readers are newcomers to programming. He explains step by step how to build a full blown bot for trading horse races.
This is great for a beginner but not so interesting for a programmer in another language. The text is not riddled with the usual blah blah of many current programming books. Instead the author is always to the point.
It should be straightforward to transform most of the code into another programming language. One gets the impression that the author knows what he is talking about. He also has the necessary writing skills to explain the concepts in an easy to comprehend way. The book is not perfect but is well put together and in times where a lot of sloppy books are published this is something to appreciate. The seminal work on Betfair programming. Although a person with no programming experience can implement the program in the book, newbies to coding would be better off to learn the basics of Visual basic.
The book details how to connect to the Betfair APi, how to write the json response and request classes needed to interact with the API and how to place, cancel and update bets using your bot. The book is well written and easy to understand and I have built a functioning бк марафон украина that allows me to automate strategies I previously had to do manually. I cannot recommend this book strongly enough, that will remain the best purchase I have ever made on Amazon until I buy his next book.

Would this be possible? Thank you. The book is horse racing specific but if you are an experienced software programmer then conversion to your needs should be easy enough.
Hey James, I have both your books - great works. I year or so ago I completed the coding on the first book and it was working fine.

Hello James, My aim is to build my own Androin app which should be automated to a certain degree. Will the book be useful for me or it dedicatede for Windows programming only?
If you are an experienced Android coder then porting should not be a problem. Your problem is usage. Is this for personal or commercial use.
If personal then use a desktop. If this is for commercial use then Betfair will stop you, quite easily. You need a digital certificate to use the Betfair back end.
Hi James. Im done with p. Do you know what I can do to fix the problem or is there another problem with my code typo? Change integer to long. Hi james, does the "ChartBox" section of your code still work?

The price engine with a bet placement control for experimenting with various bet types. The user is then shown a non-graphical way of inserting bets into the exchange for automated trigger betting with bots. A ChartBot can easily be created for multiple views of Betfair charts, side by side. They can also be set to auto-update.
The applications created in the book can build databases of data for offline analysis in a spreadsheet so that the user can analyse the data and build trading rules. There will not be an eBook. I am a self-publisher with no facilities for creating eBooks.
