    Before you were allowed to ask any questions, you were presented with this page, which you must have explicitly agreed to ("thanks, I will keep these tips in mind when asking"). That page contains advice and links to other places with more advice. Did you read before clicking?

    They're not closed because of your lack of knowledge. They're closed because Stack Overflow is the wrong place for this kind of questions. Those subjective questions asking for a collection of other's opinions can impossibly have a single technical and objective answer which is acceptable by everyone now and in the future. You need to look for a discussion forum instead of a Q&A site.

This is essentially a request for someone to do your work for you. Do some research of your own, write some code of your own, and ask a question on Stack Overflow if you get stuck, showing your research and code.
