Making a wordsearch app

Published by:

Hello

My name is Robert (GTM-5).

I have developed many puzzle games and card games with multiplayer mode. For such type of games is very important to have intuitive and funny user interface.

I know how to generate a grid of chars to emulate difficulties levels. Just for example: the following things may emulate difficulties levels in the game: crossing words, making words shorter, use rare used words.

What is entertain people more in such type of games are music, graphic and animation. I do not understand in music much, but I know resources with a lot of good free music.

I know many good examples of such games and we can take the best ideas to implement them in your game.

I suppose that you want this game be available for iOS and Android devices – which I can do. If you need Windows Mobile then I cannot help here unfortunately.

I have many ideas and would glad to share them with you if you wish.

The right way to launch any game is:
1) think about functionality and make a list of features (you should do it, I can give some ideas);
2) make mockups and describe all pages/screens (I can do it);
3) prepare creative (this is job od a designer);
4) create a short prototype (I can do it, it is easy);
5) start a development (my job). I think one phase will be enough

I like such projects, because they require some creative skills and professionalism, which I have.

My hourly rate is $35/hr and I am available 20hr next month.

Let me know if you decide to hire me. I would like to have a short Skype conversation with you just to show my expertise in this field.

Thank you and have a nice day, sir!!!

PHP by helping with Web browser based MMORPG

Published by:

Hello, nice work guys, congratulation!

I am game developer since 2010. I developed within a team such games like Mystic Saga and Pocamon Online.

I saw that you did much things, bug it still looks too rough for launch: from UI and performance standpoints.

I like such projects, because they require many skills and experience to run a great game.

I looked at you web site and made a list of points which should be improved before go live:
– user interface, it would be great to look at your UX mockups
– performance, you can utilize Canvas Engine library
– error processing
– make it more interactive, less clicks and buttons.
– add drag and drop functionality

What DB do you use? I would recommend MondoDB or CouchDB, but MySQL/Postgre is good too.

I have good experience not only in coding, but designing databases for loading projects, making UX/UI mockups and scale app using shards

I am so excited to participate in this project, because I can share my great experience with your team.

But anyway, my usual rate is $55/hr which is definitely high for you, so you can hire me just for analyzing or leading this project – which takes less time, but helps your team to learn from me. I can spend 16h per week.

It was nice to see your offer, sir.

I wish good luck you and your project!!!

Regards, William Smith

PHP script from CodeIgniter to CakePHP

Published by:

Hi, my name is Maria (GMT+5)

I know both Codeigniter and CakePHP, also I worked with Yii and Laravel.

I have great PHP+MySQL experience, so I can do almost everything.

But for me is more important friendly relationship within a team rather than super project. I am a perfect team player and successfully participated in 2 startups.

1 year ago my boss decided to rewrite CakePHP e-commerce project on Codeigniter, because he wanted to hire many new developers and considered Codeigniter as more simple and less restricted framework. Finally this work was done successfully and I got huge understanding about all aspects, risks and hindrances in such migration.

Anyway, if you decide to hire me, which I wish very much, my rate is $10/hr. Not sure if it should be negotiated, because it rather low.

I am reliable, do everything accurate and in time.

Let me know about some tech details before committing timelines.

Have a nice day guys!

PHP – Referral site automated quoting script

Published by:

Hello

I checked their web site thumbtack.com, they provided quite good options to get all information which is required to accomplish this job.

I can write such script using PHP and host it on your or my hosting. It will automatically monitor new requests and immediately issue quotes.

Most of the parameters can be automated, except text message. So if user provide some variable in the text field (for example: special house conditions), then I cannot it use for pricing. But I can send such request direct to you for manual processing.

It is easy to personalize the message.

I would suggest to improve this script and send to you SMS if an order is for large property – because maybe in this case you want to process it manually with some specific discount.

It may take 5days to complete and test it. It will cost $600. I can develop a simple admin interface so you can easy manage some parameters without doing changes in PHP code – it will cost additional $300.

I am very friendly and responsive person. I did much scripts which connect to different systems: freelancers websites, payment gateways, shipping and processing systems.

Also I can adopt this script for other similar web sites which can bring to you more clients. Let me know if it interesting – I always available in Skype and open to discuss any opportunities.

I have a good internet connection, always online and can quickly answer the questions.

My time zone is UTC+2

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Best regards, James Johnson

Program conversion from C on C#

Published by:

Hello mister,

This is my passionate sphere to work with such devices.

More than two years I work with biometric scanners for accounting working time of employees. We have scanners, which work using Windows CE and Linux OS.

I use C, C++ and C# to write different application for portable devices on my work, such as: listening to COM ports and save data into text files, send text files into COM port, read data in real-time and interact with user using display and keyboard.

Usually such task may take 1-2 days to learn code, rewrite it and test. I think that your task is even simple than my current tasks, so this is why I offer you to do it with no payment, just for the positive feedback.

You have no risks. When you can provide me source code so I can evaluate and tell you when it can be ready?

Do you have an idea how it can be tested when it is done? Do you have emulator? If NO, then can you give me a name of your device, so I will try to find the emulator in the Internet.

Thank you for opportunity!

Desktop Browser Toolbar Project

Published by:

Hello sir

My name is William

I did toolbars which are similar to ObjectDock and RocketDock, but these are just applications which bind to desktop, not to particular applications.

Of course, I can bind it to any open application, but it is better to get more details before signing for this project.

I have a great experience in developing desktop application on C#+ MS SQL DB. If you need to incorporate this toolbar into existing code, then I need to see source code of your program first.

I can easily integrate any stats and display it in the desktop or web app – whatever you wish. I can develop a web site for stats – so stats can be accessible even if you are on a vacation in Egypt.

Should be this used for MAC too? I do not have much experience to code under it yet.

I like such projects like toolbars, transparent clocks, 3d screensavers, desktop calendar planner and so on.

I can guarantee that I am responsible and reliable person. I always in Skype and can quickly answer your questions.

My usual rate is 35$/hr, but to start this application we can negotiate it to 28$/hr. I am looking long-term projects because like to work on one project without interruptions.

Thank you for such opportunity.

Have a good day!!!

Delphi7 to XE migration Developer

Published by:

Hello

My name is Michael from Moskov (UTC+3)

I have been working with all Delphi versions starting from the first.

I like such type of tasks, I like to investigate, do research and accomplish what other people afraid to do.

On my previous job I often worked with legacy code, did much refactoring and optimization. I like to make programs better.

The only real problem in this job is a conversion to Unicode, based on my experience, unfortunately it is impossible to estimate how much work required to upgrade old app to Unicode without looking at it.

The other possible problems are not too complicated: using CharInSet, FormatSettings for date, upgrade 3rd party libraries.

If you are using BDE then it is time to get rid of it.

I would like to prepare unit tests first and use cases and then step-by-step do the conversion.

Maybe make sense to use XE8 instead of XE6, SQL14 instead of 2008

I used many component and utils for Delphi including JEDI, DeveloperExpress, TNT and SDL. Not familiar with EurikaLog, but worked with Madeexcept.

I am very attentive to details, always answer questions and polite in communications.

My rate for such type of work is 30$/hr, it is not high.

Let me know if you have any questions. I can do quick investigation and estimate the amount of work for free if you wish.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
