web program developer

Tue, 04/15/2014 - 09:38
The Economics Department maintains a list of upcoming workshops on its website. Department members may sign-up for lunches, meetings, etc. with seminar speakers through Google Docs forms. Speakers are emailed travel information and instructions through a Filemaker template and script. Because we rely on three separate solutions for our seminars which all essentially require the same information, this information must be input to each of the three platforms individually which is highly inefficient so, we’d like to consolidate these processes. We have an in-house CMS written in PHP where we enter seminar information. The information is stored in a MySQL database. We’d like to create a PHP script to pull the relevant information from the MySQL database, create an email with the information (along with an attachment or two), preferably allow us to modify the email before sending, and finally send the email to a specified email address with the click of a button. [This next part optional, but ideal:] We’d also like to use the Google Docs Form Service API to automatically create a form allowing faculty to sign-up for meetings, lunch, or dinner with the seminar’s speaker. We are open to other solutions, but we believe these will be the most natural transitions. If you'd like to see the existing workflow, feel free to email us and we'd be happy to demonstrate. Pay: $15.00 per hour
