In 2014 I created a design brief for a fitness based multi vendor site and custom fitness software application to be built into a website. In 2015 I contracted the site to be built by a Sydney Company that has failed to deliver the project.
What I have at the moment is a semi completed website that I am not sure if I can or will use, or if I will be required to start the project again.
The design documentation is extensive and detailed, The site is aimed at the fitness market, it is built on the Joomla Platform and uses third party extensions Jomsocial, Jmarket, Jsubscriptions, Jnews, JS Jobs, Jbusiness Directory.
The main focus of the site was the development of some training and nutrition software that is housed within the Jomsocial component. Users of the site could subscribe to get automated training and nutrition plans etc. All the components were tied into each other to make the process seamless.
This is the 3rd time I am having to try and get this site built. It is a large site, however the difficulty has been in getting the previous programmers to understand the training and nutrition components of the software.
To this effect I need a developer that can sit with me during the programming stages (at least certain stages when formulas and calculations need to be applied) to ensure these are applied correctly, for other parts of the site the developer can work at their own location.
I am not after a total cost estimate for this site, I am looking for a programmer that lives within close proximity to myself in order to facilitate easy meetings when needed. I have broken the project down into design stages and after sitting down and going through a stage in detail I will negotiate a price for the completion of that stage prior to moving onto the next one.
This is a different and large scale site with many new and exciting features and needs someone with a high level of experience with the latest stable version of Joomla and the above mentioned components as well as MYSQL database creation as the database is large, fairly complex and the backbone of the whole site.
This is an exciting opportunity for anyone who is up to the challange, it will hopefully lead to ongoing work as I am already working on additional features for a future site and software upgrade.
