Posting a project on twago is easy and is free. Here are 7 points to follow when writing a good project description to get fast bids by the best contractors from all over the world.
1. NAME of the project?
Make your project title as clear and catchy as possible. Try to summarize in a few keywords the job you need completed. For example: “Application for restaurants’ menu“, “Translation from Chinese to Italian“, ”Redesign web site“…
2. WHAT is the project about?
What is the project’s purpose and what is the expected outcome? Explain what you want and the final goal you have in mind. Make your vision clear:
- Explain the project with your own words. The more information you can provide, the more accurate the quotes submitted by the contractors will be.
- Let the contractor know your experience level in the field of your project. Do you also need consultancy services from the contractor?
- If you have drafts, examples, specific technical or design requirements that help share a better understanding of your expected outcome, attach them!
- Communicate the current status of your project. Is it in an initial concept stage or in-production? In both cases, give specific details.
- Include your company’s brand identity guidelines if available.
- You may have seen an application, website or logo that looks similar to what you want – attach this material.
- Also background info such as target or industry audience can be helpful.
3. WHO should be the contractor?
Who are you looking for? What skills or experience are required? – a PHP programmer, a graphic designer, a Social Media expert, a translator…? If you’re not sure about the type of contractor you need, you can also get in touch with twago support. We are more than happy to help! Read more
Also this year, like last year, we introduce you BIG DIVE, the event for BIG DATA experts. Here the official presentation:
An open call for developers, scientists, hackers, designers and managers.
Quoting Phil Simon’s book “Too big to ignore” the phenomenon of BIG DATA simply cannot go unnoticed. The volume of data generated by social and smart sensor networks, company information and transaction systems and by the non-stop process of knowledge digitalization is seen as an essential asset for ICT companies. Some “visionaries” are already envisioning a tax on the ownership of data as corporate asset (Kenneth Cukier – The Economist).
On the other hand, a year of “media hype” about this topic has effectively shown that the mere availability of raw data is not a direct source of value: “data do not speak for themselves.”
The famous sentence by Chris Anderson “With enough data, the numbers speak for themselves” has worked as an effective booster for the open data movement and the evangelization of the masses, but shows his weakness when it comes to huge unstructured databases.
Therefore Big Data is not a purely technical problem, or at least this is not the key issue. Read more
