We are need of an extra developer to help with projects that are written on a proprietary CMS that uses Perl code to render widgets on pages. The software is well established and used by 100s of companies to provide eCommerce and basic content management.
The current project you will be assisting with involves minor bug fixing, and adding enhancements to current modules on the site.
If the relationship is compatible we will convert this into a long term relationship.
Here is an example of the first couple tasks:
Rebates section update on office site:
When you click - Download Rebate you will get a url that looks like this:
[url removed, login to view]
What I would like is using the framework in place create new page that saves that uses the perl LWP module to copy the file from the url, save it locally then serve the file from there.
Another would be to randomize a list products giving some extra variance to this list so it doesn't look the same every time.
The source code you write is source controlled and you can publish work that will then be approved by myself and pushed to our testing/production.
Per your acceptance of the project I'll give you the admin location and lead you to where the code is and any other instruction needed to complete the project. Our environment will take a few minutes to get the hang of where we keep our source code, but once you get this first project under your belt it should be pretty easy to navigate and use our tools.
Voice communication & screen sharing via skype with actual developer IS a requirement ( Do not respond to this if this will be a problem )
At least 3 years of Perl experience
Strong AJAX concepts & JQuery
