We are seeking a fluent Perl/PHP programmer (Linux platform) who can support us on a regular basis for a few months with an on-going project. We have already got some functionality implemented and use the software. The code is not complicated, and the app is fairly small at this point, but you will be adding new features every few days and fine-tuning existing features everyday. Daily code updates is mandatory. Roughly speaking this should be a 2 hours per day commitment lasting 2-3 months. Some specific tasks: - Integrate the customer support site with back-end staff/admin site - Bug fixing where necessary - Fine-tuning and optimizing features where requested Thank you for bidding!
-- Update on 17th Sep, 2005 (Saturday) -- ** Background ** The app is an intranet app to help us deal with our ebay sales. Mainly we target automating 2 areas with this app 1) Order Processing (OP) 2) Customer Support (CS). 3) Shipping We sell in different ebay markets under different registrations. Currently the app we have enables us do OP in a single market. This needs to be extended to new markets. For CS we are looking at utilizing functionality on our email server which will identify incoming email from customers and sort it accordingly in our intranet app. Sorting schemes etc are yet to be identified. We think Postscript-PCRE can be used, but other options might exist out there. ** First Month ** We plan to do the project on RAC for the first month and decide the regular mode of operation after that. The main tasks for this month are: * A function so that it is possible to select a number of orders by check-box and email the corresponding shipping addresses to a particular address in CSV format. It should be possible to type a quick message (textarea) before sending this email. Each of these emails (message + CSV) is viewable on the app at a later date. It should be possible to automate such emails if manually sending is not possible on certain days. * Extract the article-ID from email server and list the email message under the 'Messages' section per order/article. Such emails might need to be processed a little (to eliminate unwanted text) before storage to database. It should be possible for person processing the orders to respond to these messages from within the app. Some config of the email-server (postfix) might be necessary. * Integrate the above into the existing code. *********
