I require a developer or small team to work on developing two web based applications: -
1. A complete web messenging system comprising of a web interface for e-mail that would interfact with SMTP and POP3 servers to enable web based e-mail (like Hotmail), plus integration with a SQL server database to store additional folders and cache messages. Additional features would include a simple address book, SMS sending through 3rd party gateway, ability to create folders, move messages etc.
2. A comprehensive forums system with forums, topics, messages including moderator support, administration, attachments, polls, previews, edits etc.
Both are to be developed as Visual Studio 2003 projects in VB.net within a 3 tier architecture. We will provide a design, full spec, development guidelines and will expect the projects to be delivered as per our requirements so we can integrate it into a larger site we are developing.
We already have a overall DB that they would work within (tables for each need to be designed) and a registration/login system that you would use to authenticate users so we have a single site login for all components.
All source code will be developed exclusively for us and will be our IP and our copyright. No re-use of existing source code OR 3rd party applications will be acceptable.
I need a rough price and timescale to deliver both applications - please give a price for each as we may split the work between developers. Ideally we need both complete for mid march and definately by end of march for an April launch.
We will provide:-
- Development guidelines
- Initial meeting to discuss apps
- Registration/login namespaces
- Copy of our database to be added to
We will expect:-
- High quality 3 tier experienced developer
- Full VB.NET source code
- SQL SPs to generate tables and default data
- Excellent communication
- On time delivery
We only want to work with UK based developers and we will want to meet you first in our office in Waterloo, London. Please do not contact us if you're not in the UK and cannot develop for this platform and within the timescales mentioned.
Looking to meet someone next week to begin immediately.
Please get back to me ASAP with a rough price and we will forward documentation with the detail of what we need.
