Will consider all bids from developers using any technology that can provide me with solution for the site I am describing.
I want a social platform built that will scale to over 40 million users, tens of thousands of networks that each get up to 100k monthly page views.
I am told by some that in order to be totally secure and scalable; a platform must be built from the ground up and not upon open source framework. Others say differently. They say Drupal, Joomula and other open source technologies will build a secure, powerful and robust platform that will scale to the levels I expect; if developed by the right person.
Please tell me what you would build? If you can do both, please describe both.
Basic functionality required: user roles, photo/video sharing, forums, events, groups, chat, blogs, activity streams, forms. Must support site/profile/content privacy, allowing a limited amount of site pages customization by users and network administrators, as well as general design alteration capabilities via CSS styles, and HTML in text boxes. I would like as many features as possible to be developed as plug-in extensions, so they can be easily enabled/disabled via the admin dashboard. Before I forget, my name is Mike, please address me by my name in your reply greeting and please capitalize the second letter in my name. In your first paragraph I would appreciate you either mentioning bespoke or open source. Both will be very helpful with the screening process.
Advise whether you prefer to develop the platform all at once or stage by stage, allowing nuances and possible setbacks to be taken into account, including issues that may arise over something you or I neglect to specify. But I want this initial bid to include building the entire site with all the features and functions.
So, please put your best foot forward and reply with a very short description of the technologies you would use and any other information wish to share or questions you may have. I want to see links to social networks you have created with description of technology used. Please make sure the link works and the site is still on servers. Only the best examples of your work please. Thank you.
