Developer needed


#1

Hope I’m not being naive here but I posted the following
on some freelance sites. What say you guys - the post is
self-explanatory I believe.

Project description: Myspace meets match.com hopeful - but with a very
unique twist - you get the idea - heavy service database user
interaction, photo’s, matching, questioneers and cellphone
interactivity. Tired of the PHP vs .NET wars. PHP uncertain of handling
growth down the road and .NET locking into MS world. Wondering if anyone
out there believes R on R can as yet handle a project of such scope-
front middle DB back and payment gateways - as those sites both in terms
of features and functions and scalability with growth. You get a paid
showcase challenge and I get time and $ savings on the reputed ease and
speed of development in 1/10 th the time. Maybe the start of a longtime
relationship if we work well together.

Employer questions: (1) Is ROR.1 ready yet for a project of this scope -
ecommerce/enterprise level - scalability, robustness and its ability to
grow with company
(2) Any relevant samples of your work using this development environment
(3) your opinion RoR vs PHP , .NET as a framework for the client and it
reputed lower cost faster speed development potential
