I am in the process of developing a website. Unfortunately, I am not a programmer, and need help understanding how difficult it would be to create specific functionality, and how each functionality would be created. I do not, at this point need web development skills, and am only looking for someone to help explain how the process would work.
I would send you a document of about 15 pages with the functionality and features I want my website to be able to provide.
What I need from you:
Assessment of what it entails (time, resources, etc) to get a website with the functionality I outlined up and running. I would like it broken out by key functionality, so I can understand what I could take out to reduce complexity. I also want to know what software/hardware requirements I would have, and vendors I would need to work with (e.g. financial institutions, web hosting companies, etc.). And I just need some general guidance around website development.
Since this needs to be written out, a good command of the English language is important. I need someone who is familiar with all aspects of web design and e-commerce and could assess how difficult it would be to get a site up and running. . I would also require that you keep anything I send you strictly confidential and sign an NDA.
I would esimate that time commitment to this would be 1-2 full days. Depending on the outcome, there may be potential follow-on activity helping me spec out the project more fully, wire frames and developing the site.
