I am planning on having software written, but before hand I would like your assistance in the planning phase. I have some rudimentary knowledge of software development but need you to hold my hand so I understand the issues involved and can get to my end point.
I have a pretty good idea in my head what I want out of the application and where I want to go with it. In this design phase I will require assistance in deciding on architecture/cpmponents and the pros/cons. Also, an indication of the complexity/required effort for the various components in light of the tasks I would require to have done. The goal is to have a design blueprint, or something very close to it, for me to be able to bid out the eventual software project with a minimum of fuss.
Initially it is for my own personal use but would like the capacity for putting in a banner area and having a download service.
There is the possibility of modifying an opensource eclipse project, or something can be built in .Net. In the case of the latter I have already identified certain components that I would like to use. The open source project is linked below

and is reasonably close to what I want to do.
For further examples you may want to look at [url removed, login to view] as this also has a certain number of features that would be interesting.
I will be working with realtime data feeds, charting, list manipulation and limited analysis of financial data. Historical and custom data would have to be stored as well.
I imagine to do this over intermittent emails for several weeks with the wining bidder. So I’m not asking for a solid block of someones time.
Please indicate relevant examples showing your previous experience, if any.
Please PM me if you require further clarification.
