Best Place to Look for Devs? Non-Minecraft Software Project


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I am looking for a software developer(s) for a project. What are some good places to look? I have heard of guru.com but have never contracted anyone through there. Why am I asking on here? Because I have seen a lot of good developers working on Forge and making Minecraft a much better experience IMO and figure someone(s) on here might want to work on this and make money of course!

 

This is the blurb I have been working on (think I should add/remove something?):

 

-----

 

I have a customer that has an Access database that they want to do more with and then move on from. This will be a multiphase project:

 

Phase 0. (ASAP) Determine if current project is feasible.

 

Phase 1. (1 month?) Add ability for customer to route jobs based on distance from zip-code (nationwide USA) utilizing the current Access DB.

 

Phase 2. (1 year?) Move from Access DB to something multi-user and web modifiable. I am thinking LAMP based.

 

Phase 2a. Enable routing by driving distance not just radius.

 

Phase 3. (1-5+ years?) International, more robust, fault-tolerant, and enterprise. Could still be LAMP but with more hardware and support personnel.

 

So, looks like I am looking for a software developer(s) that is(are) comfortable with updating an Access DB and later converting to a LAMP-based multi-user web-accessible/modifiable DB. I could do it with different developer(s) per phase but unless Phase 1 isn't feasible I am not looking to bypass it.

 

The software developer(s) will do that all-important and fun design and programming portion but will also have input in the:

1. Infrastructure (software repository, hosting, maintenance, etc.)

2. Program management (goals, timelines, etc.)

3. Configuration management (versioning, pulls for official testing/delivery, etc.)

4. Testing (test cases, manual testing, etc.)

5. Documentation Management (doc creation, updating, etc.)

 

Pay will be commensurate with *ability*: we're talking real pay rate that is above board (taxed, contracted, etc.). Can be hourly, portion, or job. Can be individual, individuals, team or company.

 

I am platform and tool agnostic but do prefer OSS to closed;I do appreciate .NET and C# though. Agile software development but not a slave to it.

Thanks!

Thanks for the idea, I will check there. Good some contacts from my previous software development job- can't believe I didn't think about that!

 

So far:

Guru.com

LinkedIn.com

 

Any others?

LinkedIn is a good place but for Minecraft devs, I'm not sure. Also check odesk, I've heard some good stuff about it and I also remember someone in the past used it to create his own server with custom plugins.. but it requires you find the right people of course.

Thanks for the reply, John. At this time I am not looking for Minecraft devs- the project is basically for a database and website for a customer (business) of mine. Thanks again!
