Web Design and Development Volenteer Team Needed for DRT/CAC Website

We need talented designers and developers to assist with building the Disaster Response Team Website (Citizens Assisting Citizens).  The initial site can be a basic informational site, a few pages, contact forms, how to get in touch and take initial training and all.

Long term I want a Database back end where all approved team members will have a profile of their training, skills, past assignments, etc.  Each profile should have a QR code that can go on the team member’s badge.  This will allow instant vetting by all Government and NGO responders in a disaster.

There is more to this but those are the basics.  Interested parties should contact me via email, I will plug you into Team Blackjack via our leadership forum and the team and the selected designer/developers can take it from there.

Clearly this needs to be a small team of 2-3 people, to many cooks bog down progress on projects of this size so I likely won’t take everyone.  Please if you are just a “photoshop guy” that isn’t what we need, we need a few folks that can get the basic site up fast then build the back end.

We also need this to be very user friendly so non genius types like me and the other team members can do our own updates etc.    Interested parties should send an email to me at jack at thesurvivalpodcast dot com with “CAC Website” in the subject line.

I know it should go without saying but as CAC is a nonprofit in its’ infancy this is a volunteer only role.  I am funding the corporate filings for CAC Inc. and will fund all hosting, domain fees etc for the site.  I will also fund any stock photo fees necessary for design but that is about all the funding we can pay out of pocket at this time.

  1. Has there been a process developed for people who would like to make a financial contribution to the organization?

  2. What platform do you have in mind? PHP? Java? Ruby? Ord do you prefer a framework like Drupal, Rails, YII…… or is that all up to the developers?

  3. Throwing my name into the hat in case you need me – I handle everything front-end for design and development.

  4. I have experience with database driven web presentation, perl, php, mySQL, asp, access, MS SQL, etc (not strong in JAVA or .Net). I also have experience with the Macromedia and Adobe web dev suites although it has been a few (actually several) years and a few versions ago. I would be happy to help if you could use me.

    From the post, “Interested parties should send an email to me at jack at thesurvivalpodcast dot com with “CAC Website” in the subject line.”

  6. Is this still rolling? I’d hate to see this go the way of agritrue.

      First AgriTrue isn’t gone, it was just shelved due to issues. I am about to go looking for an AT developer next week, I just couldn’t shove it into this week.

      On DRT it is now CAC (Citizens Assisting Citizens) and it is trucking along in the hands of a great Board of Directors and team of advisers.
