h3. I used to do actionscript and learned enough coldfusion to be
dangerous, but I don’t know Flex. So I’m looking to hire someone
to get the Flex tree component working. How long should it take to s
etup a mySQL database and just get the flex component communicating
with it via PHP? The first guy that responded to my post on odesk.co
m was from India. He said it would take him 60 hrs. at $15/hr. It se
ems to me that the hours are way too long and the rate too low. Am I
It's been a long time since I've done AS and even longer since CF because my day job requires only Director Lingo. Besides, as much as I like programming I'm really an animator and writer (davidwatkinson.com.) And even if I could learn enough to get the flex tree going, the rest of my project will require such advanced programming (a lot of PHP which I don't know at all) that I really want to find someone to work with on the first relatively easy stage in the hope they we may be able to work together on the more advanced stuff.
$15 an hour for Flex help is a steal, but 60 hours is way too much.
Pay him for 30 hours and you're still ahead of the game compared to US rates for Flex developers.
I don't know CF, but now you have some guidelines.
