I am in DESPERATE need of an expert Perl programmer who can work on my community based website (long-term).
The site is built using Perl/MySQL (long script was recently divided using AutoSplit). It is a niche community/social site - you must be able to custom code new features as well as update/enhance existing functionality. Some examples of features you would code are: blogs, comment/review system, friends (like myspace), ranking lists, groups, different user levels, moderator accounts, private messaging system etc...
There is a s**t load of work to do so if you are looking for regular work, are competent in Perl and work fast, PLEASE CONTACT ME!! Some example sites from competitors, which many features will be inspired by, are (remove spaces): w r i t i n g.com u r b i s.com a l l p o e t r y.com
I pay on a per-item basis (I currently have about 50+ items that need to be added and thats just phase 1). I provide full specs and mockup pages so that you can see exactly how the feature should look and work. Generally, you would review the item specs & mockup, check out the back-end code to see how many areas you will need to work in and then provide me a quote for that item. Quotes are not concrete so don't be afraid... if the feature evolves during development or is more complicated then you thought, we can revise the price providing the new price is not ridiculous compared to the original.
I must stress that I need someone affordable due to the high volume of work. Thanks for reading, hope to hear from you!
