Interested in diving into an open source project for a good cause?
I'm looking for a bit of help from 1 or 2 other interested developers.
Experience matters not. Passion and dedication certainly does. Love
for independent music and musical open-mindedness is required.
http://alonetone.com is a site I launched a few weeks ago, providing a
non-commercial home for musicians. Folks upload their tracks, create
playlists, get feeds for itunes, put their music on facebook, get some
stats about who is listening, etc...
The basic feature set is roughed-in and fairly stable. The help I'm
looking for involves maintenance, making things more usable &
friendly, increasing spec coverage, as well as rolling out a couple
asked-after features over the next few months. Hard creative work.
You'll be using/learning Rails 2, rSpec, LowPro, SASS, git, and a
bunch of other trendy and cutting edge awesomeness.
We'll be competing with sites and startups who are looking to profit
off of independent musician's "content." We're offering a safe haven
for fledgling and experienced musicians, devoid of commercialism, and
a simple down to earth home for their music.
