Coupon / Promotion Site
My company is called Coupons on Campus. It delivers promotions and coupons to college campuses from surrounding businesses. The site would need a drop down menu so that users can choose their state and school as well as search for coupons. I need the coupons to be able to print as well as a login for businesses and myself to login and post the ads.
My company is extremely similar to campusspecial.com and would like something like that or couponcabin.com with a map feature built in also.
Project Parts: What do you want the seller to do on this project?
Requirements: The seller will analyze the problem and propose a software-based solution to the problem.
Programming: The programmer will take the requirements and translate them into the language of the computer (and test it).
User installation: The installer will move the software from the place it was created (which is called the development or QC environment) to where you will use it (which is called the production environment). The installer then tests the software to make sure that the installation was done properly and completely.
Req. Doc. Type: What kind of documentation do you want for this project?
Informal documentation – As the buyer talks back and forth about the project with the seller, those conversations become the requirements.Remember to communicate ALL of the details of your project on the Rent A Coder site. If you don’t, and there is a dispute, then important details of the contract will not be documented and cannot be taken into account in arbitration. If you feel you MUST go offsite (for example, using the phone or IM) then afterwards post everything onsite and get the other party to post that they agree to those contractual terms.
Program Type: What kind of software should the seller create (and/or install)?
* An internet web-site: This software runs on a web server and users will access it using their internet browser.
Internet web-site info
Design and functionality: What does the programming of this project involve?
* Design: Create the layout of the pages (or modify the layout of existing pages).
* Program Functionality: Making the website “work”.
Modeling another site: Do you wish to model another site? Yes: www.campusspecial.com
Size of website: How many pages need to be created/edited in this website?
I don’t know.
Other info:For now, the drop down menu will only include 1 city to show coupons for.
Programming Language: What programming language(s) do you want your website written in?
I don’t know what language (and need the programmer’s assistance to suggest it).
Database: Will this project include a database?
Yes, it does include a database.
* MySQL — version(s): 5.0.87
Browser Type(s)/Version(s): Which browser/version combinations must this website support?
* IE 7.0
* Firefox 3.0
* Safari 41
Server Hosting Environment: What is your server hosting environment?
I have a server at a 3rd party hosting company.
The name of the hosting company is: Super Green Hosting
The server’s shared/dedicated status is: Shared with other people.
Component Compatibility Protection:
Sometimes a programmer may create features on the website that rely on componentswhich work fine on their own server, but won’t work with your 3rd party hosting company’s server. There are many reasons for this including version incompatibility, restricted permissions, etc… Rent A Coder normally requires that the programmer verify in advance that your 3rd party hosting provider will support the components. If they do not, then they are responsible for any incompatibilities, rather than you. Do you want this protection on your project?
Yes, I require the programmer to query my hosting company in advance, to ensure that they support all components which the coder uses in the final solution (including supporting the anticipated version #s, allowing components to run under their potentially restricted security model, etc.)
Server Hosting Environment: Will the coder develop “live” on your server?
Other / not sure/ or need advice. Details: Doesn’t really matter as the new site is brand new.
Physical installation: Who will perform the physical installation?
The programmer will perform the physical installation, and will be given all necessary permissions to do so.
