Greets!

I'm in need of someone to make a module in Xoops. This will be a paid gig.

If interested - please email me at gooberhead@gooberhead.net for details.

Serious inquiries only. I will be wanting to look at some of your previous code.

How much does a normal module cost to build.

It all depends. But what I need I have a ceiling on what I'll spend.

The reason I ask is in the future I might be looking at getting a module made and it would be good to know how much it would cost to build.

For example:

What would it cost to build the following modules:

Document Management System

XooPopChat

I recently made some contacts on getting a module written and was quoted between $3,000 and $5,000 USD, ouch!

This is something that people don't always realise.

Unfortunately programmers aren't always cheap - especially if it is their livings they are earning.

Your best bet is to get a project that a few people require, and to gather a team of people to raise funds... if the people need slightly different requirements, the programmer may be able to vary the code slightly - or combine all the required features into one.

@ Goober, didn't mean to hi-jack your thread sorry!

David,

Yes I realize that, I'm a programmer also, just not all that familiar with the XOOPS code and php, guess I'll have to learn. In my case I wanted something solid much sooner that it would take me to come up to speed on xoops. I really like this cms.

Unfortunately, the module(s) I need are going to be pretty specialized and pretty worthless to the community (I think) so interest in thier development is very low. I was hoping that because it was for a volunteer cause (playing on sympathy now) and not in any way a money making venture that I could get some help on doing them. I'm confident that I have found someone to help at this point which makes me very happy!

One thing I would like to come out of this is that we could get a 'tutorial' group going, maybe a forum that the devs could jump into and give pointers and help for those of us that would like to contribute more. It just isn't all that clear from what is left of the documentation where one should start. So to (re)kickstart development it would seem plauseable to me that this would be something worthwhile.

jmho ....... Jeff

Now *that* is a good idea.. a XOOPS development forum.

In fact, if you've visited Dev.xoops.org recently, you'll notice that Phppp has put a news piece asking for input on how to improve dev.xoops further - i've added a couple of suggestions myself ... perhaps this is one to suggest there (as it is the most suitable location for such a forum).
