Experienced PHP developers

Published by:

Hello

I am TyaJin from Thailand (UTC+8).

Please see my comments based on your requirements:
—————————————————————–
1) Object model:
– I used UML to develop two similar projects, which exchange XML packages to speed up video broadcasting.

2) Local storage:
– I worked with eAccelerator and familiar with APC. When I was a student, I implemented my own local super-fast simple DB on Java for the University site.

3) Conflicts resolving:
– I fully understand the requirement. I know how to resolve such collisions on desktop applications, but need more info to figure out how it should work on PHP

4) Simultaneously processing:
– Your solution with EXE files is very interesting, but I have idea how it can be dramatically improved by using system messages technology.

I read and have some questions about your attaches, I would glad to ask them and share my ideas.

Short introduction:
———————–
I am very interested in this project because I like PHP coding and working with algorithms, but I am not a database architect/designer.

My profile includes some examples, but not much, because last serious works were done under NDA (it was almost 8 projects).

I worked as system architect in last two projects where I was responsible to design an object model for a development of team.

I do PHP programming more than 5years and within this period I had been working as slave coder, senior developer, team leader and system architect. So, I know all aspect of project development and have great communication skills.

I have experience with the following similar image processing libraries: Google API, GD (great experience), Imagine, Php Graphics Work (less known)

Of course, this work will require strong experience in writing unit test. I would recommend PHPUnit.

If this project will be developed by a team I may suggest to use the following very useful task management systems: Trello, Fogbugz (not free), Bugzilla and Jira.

I worked with all most popular repository systems like: SVN, CVS, BitBucket and GitHub.

My rate:
———–
My rating is 30$, but I am ready to loosen it, because there is only feedback in my profile. Getting feedback is more important for me rather than money. Let start 22$/hr.

Some tasks may require additional research, which will not be included into payment time.

I am ready to do test job if you wish.

I can share the project progress as often as you wish.

Best regards, TyaJin

Fixing tons of microbugs on several websites

Published by:

Hello mister

I would like to join your team and do these tasks.

I always have serious attitude towards any tasks from fixing to develop a project from scratch.

My colleges often ask me join them to find, investigate and fix bugs in alpha versions.

The company where I am working now is IT company with own hosting, so I definitely know all aspects about php and apache setting: like control uploading file extensions and size, manage available memory, do redirects, rewrites and many others.

I wrote some plugins for wordpress like social voting, registration forms and gathering stats.

I can do responsive coding from scratch or support already existed code.

I am very patient, polite and attentive to details.

I can not only fix bugs, but also improve your code or make some advice according the coding.

I have 15hr per week, which I would like to spend on your tasks.

My rate is $15/hr, but I agree on your condition in hope to increase my rate after you evaluate quality of my work.

My name is Kaonde and thank you very much for the opportunity!

PHP script to simulate a human login

Published by:

Hello

The solution for your task can be archived by different ways, which depend on the following:
1) if the site you mentioned is yours then I can write PHP script to emulate login and download file. It is easy;

2) if the site is an external site then it is better to write simple script (there are many desktop tools available for windows and mac) to emulate user actions like login and clicks.

For the case #2: you even can put this script into schedule and download the file periodically.

My rate is $21/hr and I can do this task during next 2 days.

I think that option #1 may take 2hr and the option #2 – from 1hr to 6hr (depends on extra time to schedule the process and save/rename files).

I always do the best for my clients; explaining what and how can be done to achieve the expected results with minimum cost and time.

Please feel free to contact me in case if you have any questions.

Have a nice day!!!

Regards, Michael

Software Development Database Management

Published by:

Hello

My name is Maria Hernandez.

I have great expertise in development such systems. For the last 5 years me (inside the team) run 2 projects for automobile (http://automobilehouse.co) and computer (http://pchelpcenter.net) fields with similar functionality.

As you have very tight budget I would recommend two options:
1) Use PHP and MySQL – these technologies are free and supported most of hosting companies. In future if project grows up you can use shards to scale it. The minus – you cannot use this code to mimic the functionality for a desktop application, which you mention above see the 2nd solution;

2) .Net + MS SQL. The project can be developed using SOAP services which allow you on the first phase develop only web sites and on the second/third phase – desktop/mobile applications with minimum hours just utilizing existing code used for web sites

I would start this project from detailed description of roles and user interfaces, which I can do, and then making a plan of tasks and estimates.

By demand, I can send screenshots of my existing similar projects. Cannot attach here by NDA restrictions

I am available 40h per week and would glad to do this project.

Please be aware that my rate is 45$ per hour. We can negotiate it a little bit.

Do not hesitate if you have any questions.

Please notice, that I am considering other similar offers and must make the decision during this week.

Thank you!!!

AMOMD is using to process and analyze OLAP data. Our system also integrates with internal SOP to inform all staff about any emergencies.

All information was securely available in the Internet via developed SOAP web service coded on C#.

WordPress website setup modify

Published by:

Dear sir

I am Worpress developer, HTML coder and in some cases designer.

I set up many websites using WordPress, Drupal and Joomla. I like WordPress very much!!!

Clients of WordPress websites always asked a lot of customization for purchased templates, so I did much work to adjust sites for their requirements doing PHP programming for e-mail subscriptions, pop-ups alerts, not standard registration forms and complicated pop-up menus.

All sites were responsive adopted for Win, MAC, iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows Mobile devices.

Which of the required job skills do you feel you are strongest at?
– I feel 100% confident to accomplish this job in time, with high quality and following all your requirements even if they are too specific or complicated.

Which part of this project do you think will take the most time?
– The easiest part is to setup wordpress and launch site as is it can be done for 5 minutes. The most difficult is to apply changes if they beyond the theme customization options.

I feel excited to get this job. My rate can be adjusted, because this is only the second job on oDesk so I mostly work for getting feedback.

I am very flexible in working time and communications. I can follow all your requirements and can advice good solutions to accomplish this job effectively and with the minimum budget.

Waiting to hearing from you

Sincere, William Smith
