The project is to build a social networking site (SNS).
We would prefer someone who can do everything -- design, coding, graphics, database, etc.
Please provide a list of some of the subtask work-items to build this site.
- A customizable home page (users simply drag homepage items around like in google homepage, choose colors, sections, etc)
- Email messaging with search and sort capabilities.
- Games facility and game content including eg Texas-Hold-Em.
- Other basic SNS site features such as music/video/blog/file sharing, events, groups, user-search etc.
Preferably, the site would be built using LAMP or other cost effective platform in terms of up front costs and long-term scalability and performance.
Open source software can be used as long as the licenses do not impede profit in any way. GPL licenses such as that of Drupal are not acceptable as they would require the release of all our proprietary project code. MIT-like, or completely free (even for commercial reuse) licenses may be acceptable however.
A content management system (CMS) should allow easy updates for advertisement and other often changing site-created content.
The code's logic should be separated from the presentation layer so that skins can easily be applied in eg CSS.
The code should be modular for ease of maintenance and modification and with scalability and performance in mind.
Per-visitor bandwidth and computation requirement estimates should be made and used in forming decisions about eg database configuration and scalability.
