  • TSM Team is Looking for a Web Developer

    Do you love TSM? Do you know PHP like the back of your hand? Do you want to work on an large-scale, community-driven project?

    Great! The TSM team is searching for another developer to help us tackle some exciting new projects. Neither Bart39 nor I have the skills necessary (or time to learn them) for this project on-top of maintaining the addon and application, but would LOVE to see it happen, so are looking to add one (or more than one!) new developer to the team. While we are always open to more addon developers, we are primarily in search of somebody to develop some web-based applications which we feel will strongly compliment the addon, and greatly benefit the larger community. Most of the details are still under wraps (for good reasons), but here are a few general details on the project(s):
    • There will be a great deal of user-facing features. This isn't a service that will run completely in the background (although significant back-end work will be required).
    • It will interact with the addon (probably through the TSM application) as well as Blizzard's online APIs.
    • It will need to integrate with our current website eventually, but can be developed independently at first.
    • We are flexible on how its implemented, and are willing and able to provide any necessary resources to make it happen.


    With that being said, here's a few things to note about the TSM team and the project in general. Nobody expects you to make TSM your full-time job. I've gone weeks without touching TSM (last week for example), and I've gone weeks where TSM is all I think about (right before TSM2.0 came out). What's most important is that you enjoy working on it as a hobby. Nothing more, nothing less. Nobody's job is to work on TSM; we are all volunteers. However, frequent contact with the other developers (via IRC preferably) is required so that we are all on the same page as much as possible.

    TSM is a fairly big project in terms of its scope and number of users. I personally love working on it, and get a lot out of it both personally and professionally. This is something that takes a non-trivial portion of my time to work on, but I find it to be WELL worth it. If you'd like to join in on all the fun and glory (...well...maybe just fun), please find me in IRC (http://tradeskillmaster.com/chat) or, if I'm not on IRC, send me an email (sapu94@gmail.com). Thanks!
