Last semester we created a basic site called GW Ask a Guy, where girls from GW could go on a website and ask any ‘love’ related question to a guy, anonymously. The site received 2000 hits in the first two weeks and many more after that.
We are looking for a Graduate or Undergraduate student that could design an HTML website, modeled after www.gwaskaguy.com, where people could create an account and have the “Ask, Shout and Confess” functionalities. This would be a great way to get involved in a project from the ground up and partake in website that is likely to receive many hits from GW students (based on the past success of gwaskaguy.com).

Local entrepreneur with a functioning database driven website needs help with systems configuration and programming. Immediate need is to help owner turn his pc into a virtual environment (to make changes to site infrastructure prior to making them live). Second priority is to change scripts relating to trial subscriptions. Additional projects needed are: creating a “cron” job that sends daily emails based on user preferences; other changes necessary to change site back end (data upload and filtering) and front end (site querying). Looking for someone with Python experience. Site uses the django framework backed by postgreSQL. I am confident that a capable person with python experience can figure out how to work with the rest of the site infrastructure. I frankly don’t care what year someone is provided they can help me.
I am looking to start someone at $12 an hour for 5 or so hours a week for an indefinite time period. This opportunity will suit someone looking for a flexible source of income where they can learn new skills. Extending the duration of employment, increasing the number of hours, and upping compensation will depend upon what the programmer brings to the table and how successful the website is.
