Non-developer here with a new start-up, looking for a Good Samaritan. I'm working on the spec for a web application that may or may not be a complex site. I believe it is on the complex end of the spectrum, but I may just be naive to the possibilities and capabilities of RoR programmers.
This site will move forward, although the company is in the process of funding "as we speak." I know that a lump-sum, all-encompassing flat fee for a website/application isn’t practical. Still, I need to come up with a general idea of the cost to get this site up.
With limited technical expertise, trying to budget for web development is a black hole of confusion. I'm looking for someone who can consult me in coming up with a decent spec and estimate cost range for said spec.
From there, the spec WILL BE DEVELOPED and of course, developers that can provide solid input on the spec and cost range will be the first to be considered in contracting its development.
The site needs to act as an e-commerce site like Ebay, Amazon or Etsy with store subscriptions for clients (no auctions), a social networking platform, and a CMS.
