This project involves migrating an existing PHP based web application to ExtJS + Zend platform and adding some new features.
Existing app had been developed in pure php without using any framework. So its code can't be reused directly, but the workflow and some code sections may help.
The chosen coder will work on this project together with an experienced project manager, who is also a senior web developer.
Experience in ExtJS + Zend is a plus, but not a must. You may still want to work on this project if you want to learn these topics.
All Zend, ExtJS and Php support will be provided by the project manager if the coder encounters any coding-related problems. This is a good opportunity if you want to get experience in these topics.
(The existing web app URL and the new features to be added can be sent upon request, when we are close to agree with the coder.)
The Ext-JS based UI of the app to be developed shall use some advanced Ext-JS widgets like tree view, data view etc.
A Zend based app that only generates JSON data shall be developed for serving data to the Ext-JS based UI.
The UI will get its data from Zend in JSON format. So there will be no Zend based UI (zend view) , since the UI shall be Ext-JS based.
The project files will be kept in an online SVN repository.
Time charges to the project should be only based on actual productive hours. Time spent on learning zend or extjs should not be charged.
