## Deliverables

Joomla/Drupal Social Networking & Video Site ??" Developer required

I’m looking for a Drupal or Joomla developer that has at the very minimum 1-2 sites under their belt and is willing to work on a site with adult content (gay). The specs are being finalised over the next 1-2 weeks and we are estimating 2-3 months of dev work required. ?

The site core site components will consist of:

-? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? CMS Build (ideally joomla or drupal)

-? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? Membership with CCbill payment integration

-? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? Social networking & user forums

-? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? Flash video player integrated with content deliver network and on video conversion done on the server

-? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? Simple shopping cart

The site will be fully spec’d and we would like to use as many off the shelf modules as possible that are then customised to fit the project. If you are able to work with flash at all to skin a flash player with designs provided that is an added bonus however it may be a stretch for a good developer. You will also need to be able to work with other developers remotely.

Proven experience and good references are very important and you must be able to work on the site full time (no one doing after hours work please). I’m after a rough estimate at this stage so please send through your estimated project costings . ? I would also appreciate a basic recommendation off off the shelf modules you would use within this.

Development will need to begin before or on the 1st of march.

Hi Guys

Bid is still on client has just paused because we want to make sure right development team is selected. Decision will be made today 15th march 23:59 pm based on response to questions, general response to bid means nothing, I need to know you are the right person and you need to convince me. You must have at least a 7/10 rating in RAC.
There is a bonus prize of a 1k for the winning bid which means building a mini site as part of the project with voting and user upload so please make sure to justify your experience as a social network and video expert when you put in your final bid. There may be a 200GBP bonus on top of this for the right team. This must be done side by side with separate developers and not the same people.
There must be full contact (voice calls, IM, text & email) with all members of the team at all times and it must be all white label i.e. All emails and phone calls must come from my company to the client with representatives that speak acceptable (to be tested) English… at all times. Please let me know how you intend to run the project management side of things using this approach? Email me with your number and be ready to pitch by Sunday morning 11m GMT!
We have decided to use Drupal due to built in social networking features and we are using limelight as content delivery solution based on previous test. The bid must come in between 3k and 8k and I want a serious justification why you think we have made the right or wrong decision. Tell me why Drupal is the right or wrong decision?
You will be working will 2 London based coders ,3 London based producers, 1 london based designer and main role will be to build the core Drupal site as per instructions from us. I want convincing feedback on the below points on anyone that feels they are eligible for the job:
- Testing what is your plan?
- Multiple developers, how do you work with them… your in charge what is your version control software
- Content delivery system how does it work?
- People who can vouch for you?
- Daily updates… how do you commit to RAC
- Joomla vs Drupal come on whats the best?
- How will you talk to the client.. white label of course.
- How will you talk to my team?
- Project plan example?
- Php vs .net why is one better than the other… btw I love .net
- Why are you the one for this job?
- How does limelight streaming work?
- What is the best way to stream live video from a video camera to a server using limelight?
- What is the best way to automate video conversion on a server (LAMP) in a social networking situation?
- When you need to convert a 4gb avi to wmv, mpg, 3gp etc… what is the best system using adobe cs4?
- Tell me about Drupal taxonomy and site tagging, why is it cool and show me an example site (not necesaraly yours?)
Why are you the best and why can you provide an ongoing service based on slightly changing requirements. The designs will be done by us internally however you must be big on css and skinning… show me examples… same with flash payer skinning.

The scope doc will be delivered this Tuesday 5pm GMT followed by user journeys by the end of this week. (5pm Friday 20th march). I am happy to make gradual payments however I need a guarantee if you don’t deliver agreed requirements as per rent a coder agreed specs within a 5 day period, we have the right to pull the project and use someone else to continue without any penalty to us and we own all source code uploaded as of that point in time. Source code will be uploaded daily by your team to RAC.
