The overall project is a Web-based application for smartphones (iPhone, Android, BlackBerry) that permits attendees at networking events such as conferences and meet ups to find each other and identify common topics of interest. The project will involve multiple technologies within a typical MVC architecture: MySQL database, PHP, presentation on multiple smartphone Web platforms, text messaging, OAuth for accessing the LinkedIn API, etc.
This first phase of the project will deliver a minimal set of functionality. The deliverables will be used as the basis for selecting a worker for further project development. This phase will be competitive: More than one worker will develop and be paid for the deliverables, and the employer will evaluate the quality of the work (design, implementation, project management) to select a worker for the remainder of the project. While the first phase is a small project, the overall project is a "Large Business Project" and potentially a "Very Large Business Project."
