This project is a social networking sports site and an app for android, ios and windows 8.
The web stack is to use stateful dispatch in Lift for higher interactivity on the web using comet and mobile services stack to use oauth token signed stateless dispatch.
Functionality is similar to four other social network - news feeds, commenting, joining groups, posting reviews, doing check-in's, managing group members, IM and messaging, etc. There are also CMS tools for content management for admins of user groups etc.
Phase I is what you are bidding on which includes web site and mobile user registration, profile creation, user match and search, messaging with push notifications, ability to add geo locations and locate or search users around such locations, newsfeed. The project already is wired in with mongoauth for lift 2.5-RC1, Rogue 2, and Twitter bootstrap. Build tool is sbt.
As a prerequisite requirement, we can agree on a small milestone of executing just the web portion of profile registration.
Project management tool is redmine.
