We need a simple server-run spider which pings search results from a social networking site and saves 4-5 parameters which have to be read out and saved in a mySQL-database you set up.
The spider needs a simple pw-protected login mask and should show that the spider is crawling or not. The search results have to be compared with the ones previously saved, and in case that a new unique dataset has been found, the data should be added to the database.
We have the source codes and links of a windows-based spider which does the same, except for the data extraction. You will also be provided with more detailed information and we will try to assist you during coding.
The job should not take you more than two days including debugging and if you are experienced in the field, you will do it in a few hours.
The job is unfortunately a rush-job and we will make a quick decision.
When both sides are happy with the results of our short cooperation, you may continue with next stages of the project which implies a few more weeks of work.
General project guidelines:
-Your offer is binding and cannot be re-negotiated.
-Full escrow can be arranged, no release before all bugs have been killed and we have had a full day to check and test.
-You will find quick support during European daytime, at night it might take a bit longer to get a response from us.
-We like to work with people with good communication skills and we are willing to pay for it.
-We expect total confidentiality.
-Timely delivery is crucial. We reserve the right to reject a job which is finished late.
