The project is to duplicate the project management software in Basecamp. Basecamp is project management software, and it is very easy for users to use. Don't worry, this is not a bogus "duplicate [url removed, login to view]" project. This project plausible and real. Basecamp was written by 1 primary programmer using Ruby on Rails, and now that it is done, it should take a skilled programmer 5-8 weeks to recreate. Coding should be in PHP, with data stored in sqlite (using ADOdb Lite) and XML. We will adjust the features and UI slightly, and provide guidance about how we want the data stored. To get a sense of the project scope, please see: [url removed, login to view] You can make a free account, and use it to explore. There are some differences. (1) You do not need to do user management, assume a user DB is available to you. (2) We do not need multiple projects, this will be 1 project at a time. (3) We will make various UI and functionality changes, but the overall scope will remain the same. If you work on this, the first task will be to define a set of milestones so that we can pay you incrementally for this project.
