At least you agree that the demo should be close to the actual thing as long as functionality will be tested. Mind you my position is against free demos not doing demos entirely because I have been paid to do demos in the past because I made them to understand that the issue here is time. Put differently, I do demos when requested as long as they are paid for.

I am of the opinion that providing links to existing projects (ones without any confidentiality issues) would suffice.

My contact details are on the web - 08023519492 or afam@justwebservices.com

My office is at No 89 Allen Avenue, Ikeja and I am usually in the office between 8.00am and 4.00pm week days, don't work weekends and public holidays.

All that is required is a clear list of features, functionality and process flow to avoid unnecessary scope growth that would naturally attract costs that may not have been budgeted for. So, getting the specifications right and list of deliverables clear enough for everyone will help a great deal.

Hope this helps.

Interesting Afam,

But I don't think anyone makes a demo that lets out all the details and features of such a sophisticated work, the idea is to get people that not only can deliver, but have done something similar to close the communication and expectation gaps.

If you have an alternative way(s) of proving your skill, let us know.

You seem to base in Lagos, send me your phone number via the e.mail I provided if you are interested in meeting with us.

Cheers.

A demo usually closely relates with the final project especially for programming/database related projects otherwise you cannot test the required functionality.

With the above in mind, doing a free demo will most likely result in wasting one's time or spending quality time unwisely.

I know that some clients usually get say 2 or more people to present demos and then look for any cheap developer to implement based on all the positives he sees on the individual developer's demo.

So, when it comes to programming time is money and that is why professional programmers charge by the hour and why programming based projects usually cost more to develop than others.

See this if you have the time to better understand my position - http://afamnnaji.com/articles/article_detail.php?id=67&cid=10

As regards your project proper, my terms are close to rigid and unless you will agree with them I cannot work on your project.

I maintain the highest level of professional integrity in business, very knowledgeable with the right skill set and I charge well for projects I handle because I deliver them according to specifications and within specified time frame and agreed cost.

Hi Afam,

I missed your drift. To be constructive, what problem do you have with doing a demo? It contrasts with your statement that there is a disparity with what people promise and the eventual delivery which necessitates the demo.

Again are you just passing-by or do you want in?

Sounds interesting. Can handle any software project regardless of complexity or level of sophistication.

Seems it's going to be a tough one determining a developer to choose because there is usually a disconnect between what people or even organizations promise and what they deliver especially after payments are effected.

Good luck though as I don't do free demos even though there is nothing you want set up that I cannot handle in a matter of weeks not months.

Ok FMK. waiting. We are talking with some others at the moment, though we are not in a hurry to make our decision.

@ dell. net, filtering your response, the main challenge may be the distance. We are not necessarily looking for whom to hire, we can share a sort of partnership if you are the Wiz we are looking for. Can you send us something we can look at?

Cheers.

I fall into the same shoe with FMK I am not based in Nigeria. However, I do a lot of freelancing work for people all over the world but the risk is on them. In your case I want to know if you can guarantee payment and how. I have done work for an individual that has not done his homework, I have done work for a company that the state government does not want to pay. Skill is no issue to me as I have been called several times to fix the work of the so called gurus. I have been programming for more than 5 years now. If it is a freelance job then I am interested if you are looking for someone to hire then I am not interested.

@ FMK, Do you have anyone that can represent you well in Nigeria who we can meet with? We are already talking with some people, but we want the best skills and someone reliable too.

Again we can start this way, Kindly mail me your profile with detailed features of your your previous similar products, along with some images of the interface.

We can send you some information on the detailed features we want and some other quality specifications if we like your profile.

Cheers.
