1. The user will login using facebook connect or manually enter a few details
2. User will see many chat rooms (standard chat rooms configurable by admin)
3. User select any predefined rooms and
3a. Either join the room to chat, if the room is full (over 50 people), we can
3b. or create a child room for their own use. Here user has to enter room name
4. Each room should have a direct link that can be emailed to friends to join directly in that room.
5. The look and feel should be that of Facebook.
6. Source code needs to be sent to me regularly.
7. The load on server has to be minimal (use P2P for video and text), so it should be scalable to very large number of users.
Note: I have worked in california with american startups for years and have started a few companies myself in the past. This is my next project. Just like any startup, I need to move fast enough to grow the company, so these requirements are likely to change as we move forward. I need a team that is flexible and has "whatever it takes attitude".
I will be funding this project from my own pocket. I am open to companies or individuals to join me on cash or equity basis. This is great opportunity for a talented and aspiring entrepreneur who is looking for a break. What you will learn will be worth far more than what you can earn on this job. I am very serious about this project. I have already purchased a domain name and spent considerable amount of time conceptualizing it.
I will be in Bangalore next week and would like to interview the company/developers before I decide who is right company/person.
Side note: I have a large network of people looking for offshore development, if we do well here, I can potentially direct many projects your way. It all depends on how well we work together and if you understand that "making clients successful is only way for you to succeed" (surprisingly very very few people in India understand this)
