Hello Eric, it's nice to meet you.
Alexandre said you'd be available to help with a Rails project -- the one that provides a web UI to upload/parse Excel files, and persist their contents in CouchDB? If you're still interested then I would love to work with you.
We have a starter svn repo here: svn://[url removed, login to view]
You can login with the username eric / DreSt7ke
In trunk/ you'll find requirements markdown for the Excel task as well as sample files.
Finally, I've tried to obfuscate data as much as I can, but at some point you will be exposed to some confidential data. Would you mind signing our NDA to protect its contents? (also in svn) If you have any questions/concerns over the wording, just let me know.
Look forward to hearing from you.
