First a bit of background info on A.D.A The site was started by two persons: Vanquish (graphics, design, screenshot conversion,...) and z5 (content, html,...). We put the first version online on 11 november 2001. The site was then in pure html and featured some 120 pages :)

Shortly after the launch, Syn offered to lend his php skills to convert the site to php+mysql. He actually did a lot of work on how A.D.A. is now in terms of php and database. Later on, Syn left the team and i (z5) took over the php/mysql side of things.

However, i have little time and never got around learning php inside out. I know the basics but not enough to move the site forwards.

I feel that we have a good base/site to evolve with now. 441 productions, tons of screenshots, logos, demo list, parties,... We're quite happy with it. But it lacks some things.

Therefore, we are searching for a skilled php/mysql developer with experience in developing websites with these tools. It would be great if that person would have a passion for demos aswell. That's why i ask here in the forums first. To be honest, the things planned aren't that complicated i think so i don't think it will be that time consuming.

So if you like this site and would like to dedicate some time taking it one step further, please contact me at the usual address (see contact page on the website).

thanks

Is he into amiga/demoscene? Maybe you can ask if he would be interested. In the meantime, i'm going to search on other forums (but i don't expect much result).

More than one year later, and we are still looking for a php / mysql developer. Last year, two persons volunteered, but in the end, they both lacked the time.

So here goes again: we are searching for one (or two) php/mysql developers, preferably with a passion for amiga demos and motivation to give this site a well needed boost. So if you like this website and want to be part of the team, feel free to contact me.

It should be noted that volunteers should have considerable knowledge and experience in both php and mysql and at least want to dedicate some of his/her time on this website. Please also note that changes/work won't be that big/time consuming. The website works as it is. So it would be more a matter of adding new features.
