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
Hello sir As there are no details about the projects you going to use me in, so here is my short recap: - 6 years experience: PHP+MySQL, C#+MSSQL; - Great experience with NOSQL DB: MongoDB and CouchDB for non-transactional data; - I worked as independent developer and like a team player, remotely and in office. I know how to manage my time effectively; - I do not afraid overtimes and emergencies. During launching some critical projects I sleep next to servers to be sure that all go smoothly; - My last project was a fantasy sport game for football. Fully responsive, tested under MAC and Windows, written on node.js, PHP and MongoDB. - I use Eclipse on RedHat for development, also can work under Windows; - Have experience with AOUTH API2 - integrated high security desktop app with web sites; - Know how API to work with Dropbox and Google Drive - it was a medical project for saving and quick access of big amount of data; - Well know nginx to implement software loading balancing. For the collaborative in small projects, I use Trello and Goodge Doc. For free source control - gutbucket. Used Fabric and Jenkins for deployment and continuous integration. Good with DB modeling and DB coding and optimization. Worked with tables with more than 10mln records. My rate is 40$/h, but if you provide project details then I can estimate and give you fixed price. I am looking for a long-term project(s) and can negotiate conditions if you decide to hire me. I am very reliable and responsible person. If I choose you as an employer, then I will not do any simultaneously projects. Best regards, David Smith
Hello sir I have 2 years experience in developing similar desktop application for Dothan Regional Airport in Dothan, USA. This system gets lot of metrics using low-level C++ library and saves into Oracle 11g DB. I was a senior developer who coded critical algorithms on C++ and .Net that communicates with all airport systems like: cooling, fire, access, alarm, network and so on. AMOMD is using to process and analyze OLAP data. Our system also integrates with internal SOP to inform all staff about any emergencies. All information was securely available in the Internet via developed SOAP web service coded on C#. Google Charts was used to visualize current state of the airport systems. I am new on oDesk, and my rate is 80$/h, but I can provide rough mockups and diagrams of your system without any payments. I will be available in a month 30h per week. I like to develop such system and sure that my experience will help you too. Regards, Robert Johnson
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!!!
Hello I am web developer. LAMP platform. I can develop web project from scratch: starting from project description, UX, DB modeling and coding and automated unit test. I am honest handworker and love to do programming. I can work overtime to meet timelines and always answering all e-mails and skype messages. I like to do small and big projects and have good communication skills. I just start on oDesk, so my rate is very reasonable 10$/hr for quality work. I can work first week for free just to confirm my qualification. If you would like to share some technical details, I could share ideas, even if you do not hire me. Sincere, Robert from Uruguay (UTC-3:00)
Hello Last 2 years I have been used ASP.NET MVC and WEBAPI - they were mostly used for web sites. Some projects were developed for web and mobile devices, via Web services and using SignalR library we adopt them under iOS and Android. In a project where client required high performance I utilize Redis framework to optimize storage and access to sensitive information. I prefer to work with MS SQL,but als know MySQL and postgre. I have been working with all version starting from 2005 server. I like to design DB model first and then code it. MS Visio or ErWin are used for designing, for small projects - MS Studio. I most work with Google API reports - they powerful and easy to use, but in one project, I utilized Crystal Reports to extract data from OLAP storage and display 3rd dimension view. I have very little experience with DevExpress, but I am an expert in Infragistics and telerik, so maybe I can persuade you to use them. Programming is my passion. I am well organized, can work along or within a team. I prefer small and medium projects, but large is also good. If you decide to hire me then my rate is 35$/hr - it can be negotiated, because this is my first experience on oDesk. I like to work dedicated on one project only without switching on other tasks. So I will be available to join your project in a month. Feel free to ask me any questions Thank you for opportunity
Dear friend I like the idea you want to develop and need to notice that developing such site requires a great specialist. This site does not require only software developer skills, but also system analytic, DB architect and project manager experience. I am great as dedicated developer and as a team player. For the last 5 years I successfully launched many projects for automobile, healthcare, insurance, games and banking fields which were integrated with online payment gateways, shipping services, real time order processing and reporting building systems. I can develop any type of project from scratch, I great with DB modeling, project prototyping, project modeling, project planning and of course - programming. I like that this project may involve all my skills and experience. I would recommend to use PHP+MongoDB on LAMP hosting - licenses are free. It also gives you opportunity in future if you decide to extend the project easily scale it using shards technologies. CND can be utilized to improve performance in case if you want to use the same amount of video files available for public users. The most important question: do you have any specific tech requirements which maybe beyond my expertize? All other are clear enough to begin. Anyway, if you hire me, then the first step will be to prepare a functional specification with project details, so we both have clear understanding what should be developed and how it will work and look like. I would like to develop this project with my creative designer. You may see her works here: www.sharlycreative.co, but it if you already have creative it is fine too. My rate for such type of work is 50$/hr. It cannot be negotiated, because I am confident in my experience and possibility to successfully complete this project. If you wish, I can provide free a short version of functional specification for this project just in case to prove my expertise. From March until June, I can spend 20hr/w and then 40hr/w. Thank you for sharing such interesting project and opportunity to bid on it.
Dear employer When I read this job I feel very excited to be a part of your team/project and share my great experience in software development. I worked as singular developer/qa/pm in one person and like a team member with in big projects with 25 developers. I know thorough how to start, develop and launch web sites, desktop and mobile application. Everything you mentioned above I have been using more than 5 years: - I designed and developed DB using MSSQL, Postgre, MySQL, Oracle more than 100 referenced tables per DB; - Ruby, PHP and C# - these last used languages in e-Commerce and collaborative web sites and desktop apps; - I like your choose of Heroku. Also I worked with Google and Microsoft Azure; - I work on MAC and have experience to setup RedHat and Ubuntu for Apache and TomCat hosting web sites. At the beginning, I would recommend to create a simple functional spec with quick UX mockups and then design DB model (ErWin is best tool to do this). Then we can make a list of short phases and timelines. Project documentation can be shared via web Git. As you work remotely, so the best option is to use Google Doc for simple QA tracking and Trello for tasks management. If you have a budget I would recommend to use Fogbugz. I do such way many years with different teams and know how to organize all of this. I worked remotely as a developer and PM, so know how to do this effectively. As PM I always have updated spec, list of tasks and last QA reports so when I make a call I know what should be discussed and what is the priority #1. As you need to launch this project in a short period, I can work more than 40hr/w. I confirm that if you hire me I can launch this project in time and with high quality. I never give up and do the best. My rate is $65/h, which is more that you expected, but I am looking for long-term cooperation and can decrease it to $45/h for the first phase so you can evaluate my work and do not lost in money. I so like this project that can do short UX mockups for free during next 2 days if you contact me. Waiting hearing from you. It was nice to apply for this job, sir. Sincere, James Johnson (German, UTC+3)

Hello There are several options how web site can be converted into mobile app: - If your site is just a simple HTML content, then it is converted very quickly just depends on the content which may need to adjusted - If your site has some coded logic on any programming language and/or databased on backend then I need to check it first before saying how easy it is. I have a project, which was fully HTML with a lot of videos and image galleries, it is must be converted into iOS app. Because of amount of videos, I utilize CDN to increase loading performance. I am specialist in iOS, Android app and responsive web sites. Many people ask to convert their web sites into mobile. For the last 3 years I have converted one e-commerce web site and tens of different web sites with registration, intranet functionality and with surveys and polls. I know how to make mobile app looks exactly beautiful as it was on web, including all responsive features. Some of my clients I offering additional things to their app like: work offline with a content, push notifications, customizations, monetization of app and social media integration. I am reliable and stay online as much as need to discuss/answer all questions. I like programming and always do the best. Looking forward to hear from you. My rate is $37/hr. It can be discussed after I can look at you web site and estimate the work. Thank you for opportunity and have a nice day, Maria Garcia.
Hello My name is Maria (UTC+3:00) I definitely understand what you need and I can do such app from your landing page during 30 minutes as you hire me. Everybody can do it using phonegap, but I know how to do it and avoid common mistakes which eat much time and delay timelines. Share feature will take a half of day. I have good examples how it may looks like I can share them with you to discuss. I agree with your cost of this task and even can do this in two times less, because I am interesting in long -term projects and want to show that I am reliable, can do job quickly and with high quality. As I have great experience in mobile development you can easily contact me to get any consultations to evaluate how good I am in this field. It was nice to offer my knowledge for your job.
Dear friend This is very common question for WooCommerce. If you have your own developers you can ask them to check: 1) DB integrity; 2) Data in the table which is used by class create_order() inside library class-wc-checkout.php. I can help you to find and fix this issue quickly or do not take money at all. I suppose that I know where is a problem, so the fixed cost will be $10. Please feel free to contact me If you decide to do this your forces. I like when I can help people and looking for long-term cooperation company. I am living in GMT+3 time zone and I always quickly answer on all oDesk messages. Thank you for your time sir.
Hello My name is Michael from Moskov (UTC+3) I have been working with all Delphi versions starting from the first. I like such type of tasks, I like to investigate, do research and accomplish what other people afraid to do. On my previous job I often worked with legacy code, did much refactoring and optimization. I like to make programs better. The only real problem in this job is a conversion to Unicode, based on my experience, unfortunately it is impossible to estimate how much work required to upgrade old app to Unicode without looking at it. The other possible problems are not too complicated: using CharInSet, FormatSettings for date, upgrade 3rd party libraries. If you are using BDE then it is time to get rid of it. I would like to prepare unit tests first and use cases and then step-by-step do the conversion. Maybe make sense to use XE8 instead of XE6, SQL14 instead of 2008 I used many component and utils for Delphi including JEDI, DeveloperExpress, TNT and SDL. Not familiar with EurikaLog, but worked with Madeexcept. I am very attentive to details, always answer questions and polite in communications. My rate for such type of work is 30$/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!
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!!!
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!!!
Hello I checked - both Clickbank and GetResponse provide methods to get customer data and add contacts into the list. I did enough similar tasks to accomplish this one quickly and professionally. The systems with which I integrates were Clicksure (similar to Clickbank), Click2Sell, Mailchimb and Aweber. My previous clients wanted more complicated integration which maybe interesting for you too: - send them SMS notification when new customer purchased a product - moving all customer details into the Aweber lists - automatically send notification into the shipping company to deliver a product I use PHP and MySQL for such tasks. Do you have own hosting where I can put a small application, which will do the task you required? If NO - not a problem, I can host it for you. I 100% understand what you need and can help not only implement your idea but suggest some extensions which may help your business. Please feel free to contact me. My rate is $22/hr and I estimate this task on ~10hr. Thank you sir and have a nice day. Sincere, Trisha
Hello sir/madam Let me introduce my-self on this position. The list of knowledge you listed in the offer means that candidate must work with different applications and be patient to extend and fix existing software. The wide experience from manufacturing to programming means that you need universal person who can deal with different type of issues and situations. I am sure that I am the best one, because I have an experience working in a small company where we had lack of employees and each must do different jobs approximately the same type as you described. I got perfect skills how to communicate with clients getting exact steps to reproduce the problem, do coding and testing, making business analyses and design app architecture. Working in rush I can smoothly organize my work and deliver successful results within timelines. I do not have desire to work in a single long-term project, I know that I do the best with different type of projects even if they go simultaneously. Everybody who worked with me can tell you that I am very well organized, professional developer and patient communicator. I know all technologies you listed and even more. Everything which will be new for me I can easily learn without tracking this as paid time. You can try me in during trial week to prove my works. I am open to answer any questions and would glad this cooperation. My rate is pretty good for such type of work: $12/hr. Of course, it can be negotiated, because I need more details about this job and can decrease it. Have a nice day sir, Sincere, Milan
Hello My name is Philip The requirements you provided are exactly what I am using all days every day, I would even add some last technology available in the most recent releases of VS to build cross-platform applications. Right now, I am working in a small team and my duties include design/architecture/business analyses and coding of most critical app algorithms. I like programming and feel that there is nothing I can do. It is pleasure for me to use all my knowledge and learn more in programming field. I have experience from developing small web sites to big enterprise ERP solutions. My favorite language is C#, but I also use VB.Net and C++ for critical algorithms. I worked with almost all DBMS from MySQL to Oracle, from single server DB to cloud and distributed customized shards. If this is project real requires so many skills, let me join it and lead it to success. My regular rate is $32/h and I will be available in a month. If you think that the rate is too high, let me know and to discuss it - I am sure that I can explain why or find a compromise. Looking forward to hear from you, sir. Have a nice day!
Hello If you hire me, I can do it during next 30 minutes. I even can take in a half less than your cost. Looking forward, Gim
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
Dear customer Please see attached my last created mobile app for iOS and Android which I most proud of. I like doing mobile applications.

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
Hello If you are looking for a cheap and reliable solution, which can be easy customizable and will not require a lot of support in future, I would recommend, based on my experience, to use Drupal CMS. Advantages of this solution: - wide used and great supported - free - there are tons of various plugins including ordering modules - can be easy supported by wide range of developers with low rates - has quite user-friendly admin interface for managing - there are a lot of cheap hostings. It is quite easy to build ordering system - it may take up to 2-3 days including setting up a staging server for your use. 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 - can you please give me links on inventory management web services. I need to read their tech doc to integrate our platforms I can start this project in two days and work dedicated to complete it. I can support and assist you by this project when it completes. Let me contact you to specify some points, which help me to provide accurate estimate and perfect solution for you.
