I could probably find some time if there were specific projects,

I do have a full-time job at a web development company which specializes in CMS, e-learning and e-commerce systems. Like alot of people these days, I have a day job plus manage my e-learning application just to keep myself afloat.

Let me know if there is a specific project that needs to be done, what the time frame is on the project and, of course, how I'll gain access.

Subject: Web developers and contributors needed for xfce.org


We are looking for new persons to help us to take care of the Xfce web site (http://www.xfce.org/). We need a web developer/designer to handle the technical details and someone to improve/update the contents (can be the same person, but it would be nice to build a team).

Our web site runs a home made PHP based CMS (with no online interface) which we would like to keep (improvements and bug fixes are welcome of course) for the time being. Though, its contents needs some love: some pages are strongly outdated, the style could be refreshed, some pages still use tables for layout, etc. We also need to find a solution for localization: the current system requires the user to translate raw PHP pages and often leads to errors when going live, up to the point that we are considering dropping translations. This will highly depend on the people who get involved in the web site.

The web developer position requires a good PHP, HTML and CSS knowledge to be able to handle the different aspects of the web site. A good command of English to update/rework the different pages and make the web site easier to use, this also requires to follow the Xfce development to update the web site accordingly. Of course, this work can be done as a team if several persons step in. This is a good opportunity to start contributing to the Xfce project and this work will be appreciated by a lot of Xfce users.

Please contact me if you are interested. Thank you in advance!
