I was recently made aware of an opportunity here in Atlanta for a volunteer MySQL consulting engagement.
The volunteer would be volunteering with HandsonAtlanta as a volunteer consultant to help the Soccer in the Streets organization.
Here are the details:
To help put a backend DB to the website but not this website as they are building a new one but also to consolidate the Database and donor information so they can just have one database with a external and internal focus.http://www.soccerstreets.org/
Database information today:
Filemaker Pro is used.
1 license filemaker pro. It does time stamp at creation and last update Database contains:
Donations are tracked in excel then input into Quickbooks
1500 to 2000 emails in the database
Use constant contact of mass email (this site allows Quick import from Outlook)
We have a volunteer business analyst who help define all the database attributes The new website is being built with a graphic artist and webd esigners who are familiar with open source but I am not sure what app they are using exactly but the know how to link into mysql for sure. However they need the database architect.
The time commitment is estimated about 40 hours of volunteer work if a mysql guru and the work can be spread out over weekends evenings and over the course of 1-2 months.
Please contact [address removed] if you can help!
