Looking for a coder to write a bit of executable software that can look for or upload an xls file (the program generating this file does not write csv at this time), parse the information from this file, rank players according to set guidelines, draft teams for laser tag play, and then output these teams in a solid graphic look onto a large monitor.
This is a straightforward, simple program. I would love a stunning output.
I don't care much about the programming environment, although I would prefer this is a compiled program...I would rather not run a server just to run this software. But, I am open to ideas.
What I AM NOT open to:
--I am done with paying freelancers in advance for work that gets dropped as soon as I pay them in advance for it. I will pay AT MOST 40% in advance while the software is being worked on. I will post a final milestone but that pay WILL NOT be released until I have a working, tested program and the un-compiled code. I have been burned too many times. Accepting this project means you accept these terms.
--You must complete the task as I write it. I wrote a fairly detailed breakdown of what the software needs to do (see attached text file). Some things are up to you, others are set in stone.
--I'm looking to you to add some graphic wow, like a video game. Do not bid for this project if you need me to spend time developing the final output. Use your gaming skills to make it look good.
--I will not pay for programs that don't run on my environment (Windows 10). Don't develop if you can't make that happen.
Please read my info first before bidding. If you get to here, please put "I'm With You, Jason" as the first line of your proposal.
Please also tell me how you would propose to develop this software (what language/framework/tool) and why.
Also, give me specific examples of similar projects. Please be specific not "I have worked on many similar projects".
If you do a good job at this, I have other projects you can work on. I would love to find a regular programmer to take on these small but important projects.
Per request of one of the bidders, I have added some GUI samples as PNGs to show what I'd like the admin screens to look like.
I will try and work on the runtime GUI, but it will take some time. I'd like to pick a code first!
