Thanks for your interest.
For this description, I choose not to get into specifics or technical aspects. These will follow when we advance. This desciption does, however, get to the core of what I need built.
The functionality and scope of this site is extremely similar to something like Facebook or Flickr. Heard this before? The scope of the project is also similar, although it is watered down in scale compared to these sites.
So, I need a firm who has the ability to code a site like this from scratch, and the know-how regarding a project like this. And when I say I desire the functionality, I don't just mean the basic functionality... if you see a feature there, assume it's something I want in this project.
This is a preliminary post, and I have a project overview prepared, which will get into more specifics. But for now, I'm looking for responses from quality people, with competitive prices, who can deliver on a project with very similar scope and functionality of aforementioned sites.
More information goes to the best responses. And please, be realistic with your prices and timeframe. I put down per hour, but we can discuss fixed bid as well, which ever works best for both parties. But I'll be looking for an hourly rate for sure.
Will need to be informed of how you handle ownership of code and intellectual property. Also, if you examples of similar websites you can provide, this is beneficial.
