full stack developer needed for MVP/prototype on github clone - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Tue, 08/22/2017 - 17:37
Looking for an experienced full stack developer for an initial consult and subsequent prototype built.  You will be tasked with cloning a github website onto my wordpress platform and building out the MVP functionality.  Must be experienced with Javascript, MongoDB, Express.js, AngularJS, Node.js and wordpress.  Please note, we are creating a Rich Internet Application, not a website/blog/etc.  Below is a writup of the application, which will need to be translated into dev requirements and milestones.

Drag and drop crowdsourced org chart builder for sales and recruiting professionals.  The tool will be used by sales and recruiting professionals to explore company organizational charts for their prospecting and recruiting use cases.  The org charts will be updated through crowdsourcing of content through users as well as various web scraping and potential 3p data licensing.

Would like to use https://github.com/dabeng/OrgChart.js as the baseline of this project

Data Collection Models
-industry influencers
-scrape web
-company insiders
-company websites
-index linkedin pages
-find email addresses- hunter.io
-Potential 3rd party partners: datanyze, datafox, owler, similartech

-business development

--Free tier - basic information 
--Premium tier all information

Org chart Update methodology:
-algorithms built to monitor multi user updates that cause a change to the source org chart
-monitor news for executive changes
-monitor website for changes
-Points are allocated for each update someone makes to an org chart and points are tracked to develop algorithms to determine which users are “power users” - those that update frequently or are “company experts” - 
—when a “power user” or “company expert” is identified those users are prompted with questions to help update org charts
—examples questions- Who is the CEO of ABC company, What is the estimated revenue of ABC company, What is Mark Smith of ABC company’s job title?

-Search for company or person: click on company or person to display organizational chart
-Display Org chart with drag and drop interface
-Sidebar where you can import contacts or create new contacts that have not been assigned to an org chart yet
-People Profile includes: name, email, title, phone, report to, direct reports, responsibilities, buying behavior feedback, location, previous companies, salary, bio, associative linkage (investments, board seats), private notes, news, connections to other companies
-Company Profile includes: company name, employees, revenue, industry, location, subsidiaries, news, technology they use (get from hg data, datanyze, datafox, owler, or similartech)
-follow companies, follow users
-“company experts” are invited to join private “company user groups” to stay connected with other “company experts” that can help them navigate an organization by requesting more information from other “company experts”
-in order to be invited and stay in a “company user group” a “company expert” must submit x amount of updates on specific company with 95%+ accuracy
-create gamification like foursquare and give badges to “company experts”: users who update the most, users who are most accurate, users who are best at updating specific company
• this is a way for those people to market themselves as sales makers when they are looking for a new role themselves 

Add ons:
-integrations to CRM, MAP
-create mail list
-integrate into outlook and gmail to export contacts from mail platform into orgs so you can drag and drop build your orgs

-scores based on questions asked of users (check out what owler does)
-Most viewed
• most viewed individuals
• most viewed teams
• most viewed companies 
• most viewed contributions by an individual (someone is in the top x% of viewings--think like TripAdvisor) or top x% of contributors
-industry stats
-women executives
-recent moves
-create your own alerts
-company scores (aggregated people scores)
-executive lists
• group of executives with purchasing power at a company
• group of executives that often work together on a deal cross-functionally at a company
• group of similar executives in an industry 
-board of directors
-news feed

Agiledrop.com Blog: AGILEDROP: Web Accessibility in Drupal 8 – part 1

News from Planet Drupal - Tue, 08/22/2017 - 07:19
At AGILEDROP, we like to share our knowledge and experience with others. Our development director Bostjan Kovac did that at DrupalHeart Camp Zagreb with his session Web Accessibility in Drupal 8. We will look at this session and we will present it in two parts. This is the first part. The inspiration for his session (and of course this blog post) came from the fact that web accessibility was a demand when Bostjan worked on a couple of projects. He also went to one of the similar sessions on Drupal Camp in Vienna 2015 and decided to take a closer look at it. Today Drupal websites sites have… READ MORE

PreviousNext: Scrum Masters are only effective when they are co-located with their teams

News from Planet Drupal - Tue, 08/22/2017 - 04:18

Browsing through the interweb I happened across this bold statement a few weeks ago. A statement so bold, it inspired me to write a blog post in response.

by irma.kelly / 22 August 2017

Scrum Masters being co-located with their teams, sure it is the best and most favourable scenario for teams working on complex projects, but to go as far as to say that Scrum Masters are ONLY effective in this instance - nope. Sorry, I have to graciously disagree.

Obviously there are different challenges that come with facilitating Agile ceremonies and interacting with the team remotely as opposed to face-to-face. A completely different approach needs to be taken on my behalf to keep the team engine purring away.

Personally for me, the “different approach” I take with managing remote teams, as opposed to co-located teams is to ensure uber transparency and over-communication on my part in regards to the all of the work that the team currently have in-flight. On my part this includes:

  • Ensuring that work in flight includes “Acceptance Criteria” and a “Definition of Done” agreed to by both the team and the client. This ensures that both the client and the team have an agreed vision of the product we are building. More importantly, it removes the need to make assumptions about a solution on both sides

  • The use of an online and up-to-date Kanban board that both the client and the team can freely access

  • Complete honesty with the client and the team in regards to all aspects of the project. Especially during the trickier and stressful moments of project delivery. If something is starting to go pear shaped, call it out early - don’t hide it!​

There are a plethora of tools now available that help enable remote collaboration. I thought it might be worthwhile sharing some of the tools that the teams at PNX use to make remote collaboration simpler.

Slack / Go To Meetings / Google Hangouts

With a large percentage of our internal staff located across Australia, these are PNX’s go-to tools for remote collaboration. We utilise both GoToMeeting and Google Hangouts (depending on individual client preferences) as tools to enable our daily stand-ups with our clients. Daily stand-ups and the ability to quickly ask via a hangout or GoToMeeting has drastically reduced the amount of email correspondence between PNX and our clients. The result? A reduction in idle time, as questions can be answered relatively quickly instead of waiting for a reply via email.

Access to an online Kanban board

The ultimate in uber transparency. There is nothing more satisfying for an Agile Delivery Manager than to see tickets move to the right of the board. Likewise for our clients! Each ticket on the board details who the work is assigned to and the status of the task. At a glance, anyone with access to the project kanban board can see the status of work for a given sprint.

Google Sheets - My favourite go-to tool, when it comes to interactive Agile ceremonies

The most common question I’m asked about working with remote teams is “how do you facilitate an Agile ceremony like a Retrospective with a remote team?” My favourite go-to tool for this is Google Sheets. Before each retro, I spend a half hour putting the retro board together on a Sheet. I try and mix it up every retro as well, using different Retro techniques to keep things interesting.  I mark defined spaces on the sheet where comments are to go, and I share the sheet with the team. Facilitating the Retrospective via a video conference (if possible), I timebox the retro using a timer app shared on my desktop. The team then fill in the Google Sheet in real time. The virtual equivalent of walking up to a physical board, and placing a post-it up there! I have replaced all of the original text captured during the retro with lorem ipsum text. What's said in retro - stays in retro! We had a little fun with the below retro as you can see!

For sensitive conversations - A video conference (or the phone)

The tools above are handy for enabling remote collaboration but for sensitive conversations with a colleague or client in a remote location, a video conference (where you can see each other) is a must. Sensitive conversations are fraught with danger via chat or email and a neutral tone is difficult to convey when we’re in the thick of things. If a video conference is not possible, though, simply pick up the phone.

I’d love to hear about some of the tools you use with your team to enable remote working. What are your recommended tools of choice?

Chapter Three: How to Prevent Duplicate Terms During a Drupal 8 Migration

News from Planet Drupal - Tue, 08/22/2017 - 03:26

In this post I will show a custom process plugin that I created to migrate taxonomy terms. The plugin handles the creation of new terms and prevents duplicates.

Below is a portion of the migration template. In the example, I am migrating new terms into keywords vocabulary via field_keywords field.

field_keywords: - plugin: existing_term # Destination (Drupal) vocabulary name vocabulary: keywords # Source query should return term name source: term_name - plugin: skip_on_empty method: row

This is the source code for the process plugin.

WP/PHP/SQL: Setup new class of user and incorporate user workflow - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Mon, 08/21/2017 - 20:43
www.schoolstaffdevelopment.com is the site in development. It is a site similar in idea to upwork.com, except it pairs schools (Employers) and Staff Developers (Contractors). We are looking for a partner to help us with this scope, and 4-ish more of similar size over the next couple months.

Summary of Scope: Include a new class of user ("Reviewer") and enable to workflow that will allow their creation of a profile, entry of engagement reviews, and saving/display of those reviews on contractor profiles.

Communication: I expect to have a ~1hr phone/skype like conversation with the final applicants prior to selection to discuss scope and confirm understanding of project requirements.

Teacher Reviews - Enable a new profile type ("Reviewer") that only has access to post reviews using a unique code generated for each project engagement.
1) When an employer accepts a bid
a. Generate a unique and random seeming 6-ish digit alpha-numeric "Review Passcode" and associate passcode with the project
b. Cause the project summary screen (as displayed to the employer and the winning bidder) displays prominently the Review Passcode with explanation "Distribute this to the teachers in the session and they will be able to provide session feedback"
c. An email is sent to employer and winning contractor titled "Teacher Review Passcode" that contains the Review Passcode and an explanation of how it is used (Please indicate via comment in code, and let me know which file, where to drop in this text)
d. A popup is displayed to the employer that displays the teacher review passcode and describes how it is used (Please indicate via comment in code, and let me know which file, where to drop in this text)
2) Add new menu item "Review Developer" to the bottom of the "Employers" drop down menu on the Home screen:
a. Add new class of website user. "Reviewer"
3) When "Review Developer" is selected, user taken to a signup page styled the same as other signup pages and containing the following form info:
• "Review a Staff Developer" Title
• Review Passcode (note someplace that "this is available from your developer or school administrator?)
• First Name
• School Email Address
• Stars: Knowledge of Content
• Stars: Personability/Likability
• Stars: Would you recommend him to others?
• "Public comments or feedback for your review?" as a label in a text box for comments
4) When complete, send confirmation email to email address (“Thank you for your review. Please click to confirm your account and submit your review”). If confirmed, create "Reviewer" account and save the review in the same way employer reviews are saved
5) If a review includes an email address already registered, add the review to that account and save review in the same way employer reviews are saved
6) Add "State" "School District" and "School" info to reviews displayed on contractor profiles that aligns with the project info associated with the review ID

Help With My WordPress Blog - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Mon, 08/21/2017 - 19:52
Earlier today, I encountered two strange issues on my WordPress blog (note: this blog is running on the Genesis framework).

The home page normally shows my most recent 6 blog posts (in excerpt format) and a right sidebar... but for some reason, the home page started showing only the header, the navigation menu, and the footer.  

When you visit any blog post directly, it still shows correctly (see this example: http://retipster.com/land-flipping-lifecycle) - however, something happened to the home page, and now it isn't displaying properly.

Note: Earlier today, I initiated a new SSL certificate for this website... and due to the timing of this issue, I suspect this may have something to do with it.

Also - there's a separate issue regarding a widget area, where I'm unable to add content.

This video explains BOTH issues in more detail: https://www.screencast.com/t/7D0qXgX10o5

IMPORTANT: Whatever changes are necessary to fix this issue - I'll need you to clearly explain what you've done - so I'm aware of any changes made to the code of the website.

If you can help with both issues, please feel free to bid for the job!

[help] Paywall suggestions

Talk about plugins - Mon, 08/21/2017 - 19:02

Hi folks,

Wanting to sell an online video course using Wordpress but cant find a decent plugin.

Users make one time purchases.

Once the user has purchased the course, they will be taken to a private landing page where they can launch the different videos and text-based supporting content.

Any suggestions on plugin or workflow? Most of the things I've looked at have poor user interface and are badly designed. Anything new and slick im missing?

Also open to hosting on a third-party type service if an option? Think Teachable.com (which is way too overkill for what we want right now.

Thanks in advance,
