Hello to you all,
I would be happy if you can contribute from your experience to answer this question.
The story is as follows, I come from a financial and technological background(I have both B.A in Finance degree and
another B.A in CS, I also have about 3 years experience working in these fields),
about a year ago I built a java application to extract specific financial data, the application is up and running but only on my local DB,
the next stage for me is build a site and provide it as a service(with added elements since similar services already exists).
So, as I'm sure I'm not the first that came up with the post of "I have an idea for a good website" (; , I would like to hear your notes, as to how to start working/looking for contractor for the client and the server side , I already have the MySQL DB up and running and updating daily, I kind of thinking putting time into learning PHP(which from what i've seen so far its relatively similar to JAVA), but I have not much knowledge on the the client side.
I'm almost certain I'm looking for a contractor for the client but how can I know who fits the best for my demands? maybe I should go with a ready template and add more elements as I go? what about the server? should I put the time and efforts and learn the skills(or hire a guy to build the foundations?).from your experience would be much appreciated
