[Twisted-Python] Seeking Twisted/Python Contractors
Hello. We have a core toolset written with Twisted (that will most likely be made open source) and have several applications of this toolset to the medical research field. I'm looking for someone to continue to build out the product by implementing customer requested features. In particular, we need several user interface improvements, as well as a whole slew of custom, one-off programming tasks. Depending on the particular task, some of the code could quite possibly be donated to the Twisted project.
If you are interested, please send me information you consider relevant, your hourly rate expectations, and your availability; if you are not a 'visible' person in the Twisted community a few references would be quite helpful.
Hello, my name is Jonathan Simms, and I've been part of the Twisted core team for a little over a year, and have worked for the Divmod Corporation for ten months.
While working for Divmod, I wrote a web-based functional testing framework to automate testing of their web application, Quotient. It consisted of an HTTP client, a dom-parsing/inspection API, and a test-descriptiopn API called "Navtags" that allowed a person to specify the steps that the tests were to take traversing the site and the assertions to be made without having to write nasty deferred callback code. I wrote Divmod's release scripts, several repository-management scripts, performance-statistics collection and stress testing code, automated/remote application management code, and documentation pieces for the developers.
I am currently refactoring the Twisted test framework, trial, and have succeeded in making it three to four times faster than the current version in Twisted's svn-trunk. It is now also easily extensible, and will be integrated more tightly with Brian Warner's Buildbot program. I have written tutorials on twisted, one of which was a step-by-step tutorial on how to create a web application using the (now deprecated) woven package. Another one, which is still in the works, deals with the new zope.interface component system.
I have been working as part of a distributed team for almost a year now. I am a competent programmer, a talented communicator, motivated, and I am available immediately.
If it makes a difference, I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from the State University of New York.
If you need references, you can speak with Glyph Lefkowitz (firstname.lastname@example.org) or JP Calderone (email@example.com), either of whom can speak for both the quality of my code, and my dedication to my work.
I would be very interested in talking with you further about what kind of projects you have.
