I want to rebuild my website - [[url removed, login to view]] as a dynamic website.
I want bids only from programmers who meet the following criteria:
1. Good with LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) and also Windows.
2. Has experience with building contemporary, elegant websites with high degree of usability (devoid of fancy graphics, animation, Flash et al.)
3. Has a good understanding of search-engine optimisation, how web-crawler / spiders work, etc and can take these into consideration while designing the site.
The website will mostly have similar content but enhanced functionality - there would be many forms to gather information from the users and the entire jobs listing will be dynamic and database-driven.
This is how I would like to proceed:
1. I want you to send me details of your credentials with samples of work executed (URLs) along with your pricing model.
2. I will shortlist 10 bidders to whom I will give a mock exercise.
3. Based on the output, I will shortlist three bidders to whom I will give complete details for the proposed work.
4. I will review the bids and award the work based on the proposal made by the bidders.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
