Any Coders Interested in a joint project with me? A business somewhat.

30 replies
Found 3rd Apr 2008
Will probably involve detailed and complex PHP and server side scripts. Payment methods of some sort.

I have graphics design skills and know CSS somewhat. Also willing to do alot of groundwork.

Due to the idea being somewhat hopefully a unique one that could be a sucess, I would like to chat with possible partners via MSN or other chat client instead of on here.

Not sure if any1 will be interested, but I feel the idea is a good one and one I can vision being a huge success.

Thanks

what is it you are doing out of interest? No need to go into detail just roughly?

A gaming (would prefer not to call it gambling... coz its not to win cash) kinda site.. prizes and stuff, with a unique twist

Big ideas A good vision, without the knowledge to make it reality on my own.

Give Jaybird a shout. Its his thing.. but whether he would be interested or not is another matter. Nothing to lose!

I may be interested I have a HND in Visual Comm and Graphic Design. Don't have much spare time though as I'm starting a new job next week

Cheers for the tip guv, will give him a shout and see I suppose, like you say, nothing to lose.

The other road was to get it professional created.... which would cost alot of money to pay someone to build it.

I would rather partner with someone.

There are numerous sites out there where you can "hire" coders. Simply spell out your needs and they bid on the job. Dont have any URLs to hand though unfortunately - but was tempted when I was creating a few oddities I was having problems with. Most will be students wanting to get some beer money!!!!

lol Yeh... but its still a startup expense that I cant really afford at moment... plus, would be good to have a coder onboard for updates/upgrades and to fix any bugs etc if needed.

Plus some1 that helps build the site will know the code better.

Thats true mate, by the way, i added you some Rep

I has a business ideas on the internet not long ago and was going through the same problem as you, sadly i gave up because of the cost, couldn't get a programmer firend on board, and my idea may have broken data protection act as well.

That could have ended up being a slight problem LoL But yeh, I would love to make this a reality.

Be very careful - if it is your idea and you think it is a goer - don't just share it with anyone. At least get them to sign a NDA. Think about patents, but remember that Software Patents are a murky area to say the least (potentially useless).

I would imagine pretty much anything internet related would be beyond this. How may "hot Uk deals" sites are out there? All the same idea... but someone thought of it first!

I thought about patents, cost to patent an idea.... that I dont think you can even do... with a website idea, was expensive...

Plus... think only thing u can copyright properly, is the actual site. One thing can do is register the domain for the site, but still, someone could register a similar domain

You'd think that but jury is still out on internet patents, I mean I for one would love to have shares in Amazon if they win the One Click Patent in the US. Apple already licensed 1 click - without any litigation.

Thanks alot for all the friendly replies so far aswell, appreciate it.

Lets hope can get this sorted maybe.

What exactly is "one click"? ('scuse the ignorance)

EDIT: Thought that might be what it was! en.wikipedia.org/wik…ick Quite rediculous they can log a patent for that. So I suppose they cant say they invented "click" as its obviously a generic term. So "quick click", click-once" etc would be completely ok - since its just the name they are patenting?

I'd have thought Apple would have more to worry about by the copying of the Xen MP3 system that kick started the iPod!

James2805 how old are you what qualifications and what experience do you have in this kind of thing.

I am 18 going on 19. I have my own website, purely html with external css style sheets. Do graphics design for various DJs including nightclub flyers and stuff.

Altho I will admit I have no skills in PHP and stuff.... Hence reason for a partner..

I am looking more to be the one doing groundwork such as talking with possible sponsers, advertisers, which will be needed for the idea.

As with a good majority of ideas, you need capital to go with it. In alot of your posts you talk about a lack of money to be able to go through with the idea on your own and hire someone in. If your confident about the idea, then why not look into sourcing some funding for it.

You'd need to do the groundwork for that. But from Bank Loans to Young Persons Business Trusts - or even selling advertising before the site is up and running - maybe you dont need a direct partner?

Why don't you do some night classes in php or get some books and start learning it yourself?

If you took it seriously enough, i'd say you could make a start on your site within a few months.

i'm always interested in investing in good startup ventures.
I'm not a technical person as such but have a lot of experience in business.
If the idea is as good as your suggesting i might be interested in being a financial partner.
The advantge being you'd have pretty much free reign.

Email me a summary of your business idea to
ali at dogan dot co dot uk (without spaces)

ai'll have a gander and let you know.

Good Luck mate, do remember though that the implementation is just as important as the idea especially in the online domain.
