Web Developer @ http://www.icomon.org
The Iconmon organisation needs a website rebuild. Essentially its a basic CMS with a slight graphics make-over.
One definite change, which is that we would like there to be a password-secured area for the Board papers and other shared files that the Board need access to. There's no requirement to use any particular back-end, and in fact I don't know what CMS (if any) the hosting it is moving to has.
Some form of written instructions for the above would be needed.
The site wouldn't need to be built immediately, as it will take a few months to get a proper spec together, but at the moment the Board are interested in a rough estimate of the likely cost.
Contact Oni in the space or email (email@example.com) or Katie Eagleton (firstname.lastname@example.org) with an idea of time and cost.

NIB DRESS FIXING
I made this electronic garment with nibs - http://vimeo.com/24923549 - for my fashion degree graduation project. And since then I had to travel with it for a couple of shows. Unfortunately, it broke during the last move and it has be ready for another show the beginning of July. The guy I last worked with has become very busy with his own full time job so I am looking for someone that can fix it and also maybe suggest ideas to make it a lot more durable. I have very little knowledge of electronics and it would be really great if anyone might be available for this job. Or if you know someone else who might be interested in making a little bit of cash, or just generally interested in this kind of projects, please send them my way. My contact info is as below. Thank you so much. Steven e. firstname.lastname@example.org m. 07515 8080 36
Wireless Hack for Smart Phone - Building a prototype
@ ioWorld (http://ioworld.com) we develop really simple, really useful tech...
I'm currently working on a project requiring a hardware hack that's outside the scope of my own capabilities; I want to create a wireless fob that a smart phone (Android, to start with) can detect at approx. 100cm. Any protocol (inc. Bluetooth) will be ok for the POC/prototype but there is a strong commercial application for this tech, so ultimately a low-power protocol will be preferable. There has been a useful tech discussion thread on the hackspace groups channel entitled "Wireless Hack for Smart Phone" which you may want to take a look at first.
Interested? Want to find out more? Get in touch ASAP: alan@ioWorld.com NB: This is also listed on the (very empty) NonCommercial board

To apply you need solid command line skills and at least three years experience admining Linux boxes in a commercial environment. You need to have a good understanding of what makes TCP/IP networks tick and be proficient at scripting (shell, ruby, perl or python). Knowing a few of these is a good bonus:
Database administration (Oracle 10g, Oracle TimesTen, MySQL); VOIP (SIP, RTP, FreeSWITCH); Network sniffing and protocol analysis (tcpdump/wireshark); Java applications (installation/tuning/troubleshooting); J2EE application servers (Jboss); Scalability, clustering, high availability (Veritas Cluster Server); RedHat Linux and RPM packaging; Source code management (subversion); ticketing systems (JIRA); Automated server deployment (PXE, Kickstart); Configuration management systems (puppet); JMS messaging (ActiveMQ); CI systems (Jenkins/Hudson); Automated testing processes and tools (Cucumber/Selenium); Monitoring (Nagios/OpenNMS)
Don't worry if you don't know everything, we're happy to provide training where necessary. Having passion for systems and a bit of a clue are most important.
