Skilled iOS/Android developer

Published by:

Dear customer

Please see attached my last created mobile app for iOS and Android which I most proud of.

I like doing mobile applications.

For GPS, I usually use CoreLocation for iOS and Google Play Services for Android. Let me know if you need some other frameworks, I can learn them.

I like that you mentioned ‘polished’ because it is pleasant to work with client who care about how the product looks like.

Which UI controls do you use? In my practice, we used Telerik and ChocolateChip-UI. I do not see any problems to work with any other frameworks.

I am self-disciplined and track all tasks and spent into excel spreadsheet. I agree with your payment conditions and would like to work in this project.

Thank you

To make complete estimate and start this work please provide the following info:
– description of a general product from the inventory
– will you use categories
– do you need different roles to manage orders
– do you need real-time payment system or will you use off-line payments. If you are going to use online payments then please let me know how your customers prefer to pay, so I can choose an appropriate payment gateway

Simple website development

Published by:


My name is Tim.

Websites is my specializations and passion.

I successfully help people who are very busy in business and who do not want to go deep into technical details.

I have many ready solutions to prepare creative/design, setup web site and launch it LIVE quickly and professionally. Your site will be automatically user-friendly, which is important for businesses nowadays!

Usually companies order creative design for $450 and then hire HTML coder to stretch it over their site for another $400, but I know how to do it for $60-80 with the same high quality results. It is not a secret.

Here is my plan:
– you: provide me details about the content of your web site / site requirements;
– me: provide you design examples
– you: approve creative
– you: give me access to your registered account
– me: setup your new web site and add content
– me: support and maintenance your website, answering your questions

Whole process as rule takes 1-2 days, excluding time you need to approve creative and provide me content.

I am dedicated worker. I do not take other projects while working on the current one.

Please provide me what kind of site do you want to launch and I will supply you some example how your site may look like.

Looking forward to her from you.

Front-end AJAX JQuery Developer

Published by:


I like this opportunity. I am just graduated and want to start my professional career in friendly team.

I was the best in terms of programming among other students in the University. I got only good marks.

I loved programming from the first course and during all study helped dean and curators to launch own web site with student profiles, forum, blogs and extended search features. I think am almost guru in jQuery :). Students love this site. Unfortunately, this site is in intranet, not for public, because of sensitive information.

It have experience with MVC and web forms as well.

I can offer my best qualities to your team: hardworking, friendly, always complete tasks, learn new things quickly, love programming.

I do not going to charge your team for things which are new for me and must be learnt.

The rate is not important for me right now, so I agree to start with any which is suitable for you.

I am ready to start this project right away, just waiting your call.

Sincere, Leon

Fantasy Sports

Published by:

Hi, my name is Alex from Armenia.

Last 2 years I have been developing similar system for Baseball fantasy game, which mimics famous FanDuel portal. It was done on PHP+Node.js+MongoDB.

You require developing your system on .net+MSSQL, which is not a problem for me, because I perfectly know PHP and C#.

Based on my experience I would recommend using MongoDB or CacheDB as the second storage, because MSSQL is good for transaction data, but not for real-time processing which is essential for such kind of applications.

What data service provider are you going to use? I can recommend some of them, which I used in the previous project, because they provide quite good refined and reliable data.

When you are going to start this project? Do you want to start from scratch or do you already have some code.

I can design and code this project along, but if you already have a team and can easily join it.

Can we discuss project requirements and payment conditions via skype/by e-mail.

Looking forward to hear from you, sir

DotNet Nuke module required

Published by:

Dear customer,

I am glad that there are tasks for those who are specialist in DNN.

Your database specification is almost perfect, but if you wish, I would advise to change migration of some fields to get a quick search of properties. In general DNN works very slowly, if do not take into consideration some DB design tricks.

I do not have questions about the layout, but to finalize estimate it would great to see the source files in which this module will be integrated (if you wish me do it).

My rough estimate for this job is 15hr, which will cost $300.

If you would like to work with me on hourly basis then please use $20/h rate.

I do not see any problems to accomplish this task during next week, after you provide access to you project. Also I can develop it as a separate module and you will adjust styles your-self.

I am open to discuss any questions, because I am fun of DNN and would like to cooperate on long-term basis.

Thank you for such opportunity, sir!

Sincere, Garmin
