Using what I'm am providing below please list how you would get this work accomplished.
list you ideas in your bid or in the pm on here.
This will include use of APIs and potential crawling or searching og user-input RSS feeds for keyword trends); how would you complete this project?
ANSWER THIS AS WELL:
Is there a better way to do it? What would you integrate to find a solution to my project.
Please provide me with a brief (as brief or as long as you would like) proposal for how you would personally solve my project.
You must be proficient in the following disciplines:
Web 2.0 APIs
PHP and/or Ruby
XML - including REST (most APIs use REST)
Some kind of database - probably MySQL
Building sites with high traffic i.e. have some awareness of how to build something that can scale from the start.
I want to have my own specific search algorithms for specific news topics. Basically a full program/website. I understand programmers are not designers, but if you would like to try your hand at designing the website layout as well, that is fine with me and would be very impressive to me keeping in mind future projects.
Example of this project: if in today's news a "hot" topic is care and maintenance of horses...I want to have the ability to search and compile references (IN REAL-TIME) into data of the words "care", "maintenance"+horses from online news sources, blogs, search engines, etc and be given updated info, up-to-the-minute, on what topics are popular for news articles and blog entries on the net. according to date/time. Then list the news articles related to this/number of articles into a graph, chart, spreadsheet etc. So that users can study the results. I hope that makes sense to everyone. There must also be a system in place to help the app/site know that the topics are relevant to the keywords i.e. if it searches for the word "green"+"technology", it does not come up with Green Day, Green Apples and only technology sites but both together, "green technology". I would also like to set up text/SMS alerts for it as well.
I would need to have my own independent web program made for this but the programmer might potentially be integrating some existing APIs (from Twitter, Google etc.) into it as well. It might even be better to find existing APIs/resources available for this rather than starting fully from scratch.
There is more to the project but I would like you to respond with a proposal on how to solve my issue/project first as it is written above, along with a reasonable price for completion. The schedule is ONE MONTH to complete this and have it tested, bug-free and online (which will also be contained in the work contract)! I will send the full requirements once contact has been made and a brief proposal has been given and an NDA has been signed.
