Creative programmers and designers wanted!
OVERVIEW: Creation of web application based upon PHP/MySQL for creative educational program (other languages will be considered, including Perl/CGI). The web application will allow teams of students to perform and submit written work online via a six-step process for subsequent feedback and evaluation. Programming will involve extensive use of original PHP classes, OO, and MySQL interaction.
We would like to consider the following in creating this web application: (1) look and feel, incorporating the latest graphical elements and styles WHILE taking speed of site into consideration (2) Code and programming, incorporating the latest advances in PHP and OOP. Modular design is an absolute must, for both the programming backend and the graphical design. Our broad goal is a modular system in the mold of EdgePanel, [url removed, login to view], though of course tailored to our unique application.
New programming MUST make use of original OOP structure and protocols, that is, original code, in creating the underlying structure of the system. How this is done is completely up to you, as long as the code is original. WE CAN SEPARATE THE GRAPHICS UPDATE AND CODE UPDATE IF NEEDED. In both cases, creativity and innovative thinking is a must!
We have current web application that will given you a very good idea of what we need, though again, the new site/application must be an original design. It includes: (1) A Team module: a site for individual teams composed of students to create and submit work on different topics assigned by the program administrator during the academic year. (2) A Teacher Module: a site where teachers may logon to view and interact with the work of their teams. (3) An Evaluator module: a site where evaluators logon to score and rank submitted work. All scoring information is then itself saved to the program database for subsequent viewing by teams. (4) An Admin module: a site for administrative control, including the creation of teams, assignment of topics, management of evaluators, coaches, and so on. Note: Admin in the new application should also allow for creation and easy update of new site pages, and so on.
While we are pleased with the existing web application and its operation, the programming and graphical design is now five years old, and is increasingly inflexible and difficult to update. Hence, once again, a modular design with well-crafted code is a key requirement of this project. Along with creativity, attention to detail is a must throughout the project. Thinking of the little things is important. Getting the little things right is what we now seek. Hence, we prefer that an established and innovative programming team take on this project.
*I will send logon information for all modules of the existing site to prospective coders so that they may see the current site/application and its operation before a bid is placed. A detailed description of our program and the features needed will also be given to prospective programmers and designers.*
We can work in stages of completion if this suits the programmer (team module as first stage, teacher module as second stage, and so on). We can also separate the graphical update from the code update entirely, or treat them as stages as well, if desired.
Other deliverables: 1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
a) Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc., unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
Complete project funds will be placed in escrow before programming begins. In addition, we are willing to consider the following payment options:
1. Release of funds on a stage basis. Details and proposed stages must be agreed upon by both parties.
2. If you are an established programming company, we will CONSIDER one of the above-mentioned stages to include prototype completion.
3. Under no circumstances will we consider releasing any portion of the escrowed funds at the beginning the project before any work has been done. If you cannot accept this requirement, please do not bid on this project.
4. If you have other potential arrangements, please contact me, and they will be considered.

This project involves the development of a site dedicated to creative thinking. Innovative design ideas and structures are a must. Please be sure to include examples of past work that best showcase your creative talent, and ability to identify and incorporate new and original ideas.
