Advice/Consultant On Best Tools/Code/CMS etc for Websites

Closed - This job posting has been filled and work has been completed.

Job Description

THIS JOB IS JUST FOR ADVICE / RECOMMENDATIONS. YOU CAN ALSO QUOTE IF YOU ARE ABLE TO DO THIS WORK, BUT I AM LOOKING FOR THE NAMES OF THE SYSTEMS/CODE/CMS/PLATFORMS ETC THAT COULD BE USED TO CREATE THESE WEBSITES, SO I CAN GO AND DO MORE RESEARCH.

**** The Best Way To Apply for this Role is to explain clearly your experience in building / consulting on these types of websites and then supplying some examples of work you have previously done that is similar to what I need ****


I am looking at getting 2 different websites created and want advice on the CMS/Systems/Tools etc that the sites would be built on so I can go an research more on the suggested technology. Too often the responses from oDesk can be vague in how the work is being done in the backend. I want to understand how my sites are being developed, which aspects may be Open Source, which are custom designed etc, if there is an Open Source Add on, is there good support etc. I will also want some reasoning behind the recommendations, rather than just "Joomla does all this". I want to understand in 12 months time how I need to go about requesting changes, rather than be left with a slapped together site that cannot grow or develop.

This job is for your advice, and if you have these skills to actually complete the work, the manner in which you respond to this job, will put you in good stead for the task of actually building the sites.
