I am building an exciting social networking site using the Elgg or CodeIgniter framework. I am open to other frameworks. But Elgg has many features I already need, so I want to use that.
The site will basically help people in the sports community to find, communicate, and learn about each other. It will list all users and groups that they belong to, along with status updates and rankings. It will show a listing of businesses that are relevant to their sport in their area. There will be geolocation features. You will have to implement anti-spam and anti-hacking measures.
We are starting from scratch. You will help me build this to my first beta which 100 people will test. The site will run on a linux box, DB will be MySQL. Web server: Apache.
If you do well and can be TRUSTED, I will use you for my client projects and give you more work.
This is a pay-as-you-go arrangement, so I will tell you all requirements as we go along.
You must be willing to show/teach me how something works in the system or code you are working on.
**You will need to be pretty good at:**
AJAX - JQUERY.
Server configuration for production level
Reading and understanding existing code
Working with imap/smtp
Commenting/documenting your code.
