Put very short, my database is a wikipedia, but with built-in citations and for data only.
A proof-of-concept was the base for my university thesis some years ago. However, since then several factors have kept me from launching the website into the open, main reasons being: a) Having a more than 9-5 job I find it hard to keep coding after working overtime already. b) Being over 30 I do have a life and a gf that I want to spend time with c) Having never properly studied programming and database design, it takes me much longer to solve problems than a professional programmer.
The idea has been tested for general validity at my university, and the database design has been reviewed by the two database experts I know, who say its sound. What needs to be done is the "fleshing out" part — layouting and customizing the forms, validating and santitarizing the database inputs, and beginning beta testing. My question is: Is there a good platform/forum to find coders that might be interested in a strictly open source/non profit venture like that? I would dislike to loose all involvement in the project, but I would love to get some help by some people willing to program in PHP or AJAX and SQL. That means I need people that can commit to a project that might take several months or longer, and which have a reasonable (hopefully better) talent and knowledge of coding then myself, and who do not expect anything else than fame from this. Any ideas?
Many thanks in advance."
