The project will require writing a perl script to place HITs on Mechanical Turk using the Amazon Mechanical Turk SDK for Perl ([url removed, login to view] ). The script will access a MySQL database to get data, and will then create a HIT to asks questions and receive data in response to the questions. The details of the script will be discussed with the chosen developer. Please bid a "best guess" for a small script to this end, and after acceptance and discussion we can settle on a more final price.
The ideal developer will have experience with Mechanical Turk and Amazon Web services or a strong desire to learn those tools. Perl and SQL experience is a must.
This is the first of what will hopefully be a series of projects on a theme. My goal here is not to create a complicated detailed description that is turned into a fully functional script, but to start small and build up in a series of small projects, tweaking goals and processess via a series of project steps. To that end, I am interested in building a collaborative relationship with a developer, so please only bid if you are interested in working on a chain of related projects that may extend over months.
