1. Cover letter example for Experienced PHP developers

Web, Mobile & Software Dev • Web Development
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

4. Cover letter example for Software Development Database Management

Web, Mobile & Software Dev • Web Development
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!!!

- I do not like to do simple HTML coding, I prefer to use existing libraries for that

2. Experience building secure dynamic websites and infrastructure

3. Working knowledge of Linux scripting
- That site hosted on a dedicated Linux server under RedHat. I use Shell scripts to deploy builds from Git, and Jenkins to automate testing process

4. Extreme attention to detail
- Before doing any work I sit and described all details, interfaces and methods which are going to be developed. I like to have clear picture before doing the job

7. Cover letter example for PHP Software Developer to mimic site

Web, Mobile & Software Dev • Web Development
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.

11. Cover letter example for PHP - Referral site automated quoting script

Web, Mobile & Software Dev • Scripts & Utilities
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

12. Cover letter example for PHP script from CodeIgniter to CakePHP

Web, Mobile & Software Dev • Scripts & Utilities
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!

13. Cover letter example for PHP by helping with Web browser based MMORPG

Web, Mobile & Software Dev • Game Development
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 

14. Cover letter example for PHP script to simulate a human login

Web, Mobile & Software Dev • Web Development
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

17. Cover letter example for putting Clickbank Customer Emails on my Get Response List

IT & Networking • Other - IT & Networking
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
