How to engage a developer
Need site, built by someone else

Msg#: 4648414 posted 3:02 am on Feb 24, 2014 (gmt 0)


I'd like a website that will allow a user to login and see a blog, plus a chart that will change with different selections the user can make. I have a SQL DB with the data but I need someone to put together the site (maybe using Google Charts API) and link it to my DB.

I've asked a number of the big web development houses and they usually stop responding when I ask about a chart that links to my DB for its data. How can I find someone to build a site for me? Hopefully, it'll be successful and we can move onto mobile apps across platforms and more interesting places like Chromecast.

If everyone is running, it must be difficult to achieve...

First of all welcome to WebmasterWorld. It's good to have you with us. :-)

The first thing you need to do is draw up a very detailed project specification. Within this document you should go into the details of every single aspect. Describe exactly what you want your application to do, and how it should be achieved.

Also, have a budget in mind and send your proposal to a number of developers. Ask the developer to reply with a time frame and any changes the developer would like to make to your original specification.

The specification is the most important thing you need to get right when dealing with a developer. When things are left open the developer will attempt to bridge the gap by doing what he/she feels is right. By having all the bases covered you are able to approach the developer better prepared.
