We would like to use [url removed, login to view] to hire some freelance Ruby developers.
However, the site is virtually impossible to navigate.
What I would like to do is place all of the data (21,000 developers) into a database by:
- Link to profile
- Available for hire (yes or no)
- Number of people who recommend this person
- Number of people this person recommends
- Forum posting rating
I would like this database updated daily.
Following that, I would like an interface where I can filter developers by any of the above criteria.
You can find a list of people at: [url removed, login to view]
I imagine one would have to build a crawler to start at "A" and work your way through, but you may be able to think of something more clever.
IMPORTANTLY - you DON'T have to write this IN Ruby.
Freelancer.com won't let me change the project title, and I think it's confusing some bidders.
