Create a website where the first 1 million number of people will receive a coupon via postal mail. The design is very simple but the solution must be extremely robust.
Users will go to a web page, enter their information and then be informed whether they are amongst the first to provide their information. There also needs to be a process for eliminated under-age entrants and those who aren't within the geographical boundries of the sweepstakes.
In your response I need to see your understanding of this project , what's expected and what technology you plan to use. I would like to use SQL 2005 and [url removed, login to view] but am open to suggestions.
Would also like to be able to do some load testing before the site goes live and owuld like to know your experience with tools to do this.
We will supply image files. The site will consist of about 6 pages of mostly static information. We would also like to be able to do some reporting as far as site statistics and entrants
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
As mentioned above the site must be extremely robust and able to handle hundreds of requests at a time. Looking for your suggestions on technology/platofrm.
