Hi Everyone,

Apologies for the cross-posting...

IT Services is looking for a couple of good student developers to help  
create a cookbook that addresses web development within our  
infrastructure (posting below) as well as polish up templates for some  
of the open source apps here on campus.

If you know of any students who can code well in PHP and/or Perl and  
that might be interested, or anyone that might know someone who's  
interested (like professors), or even where a good place to post  
flyers would be (I figure Gates, Hewlett and the Math building - where  
else?), please let me know.

If you've hired students before, I'm also looking to find out what  
would count as a competitive rate nowadays.

PHP / Perl Web Developer (Open Source)

IT Services is looking for a couple of Stanford students to help  
create, review and document a web development cookbook, or set of best  
practices for developing web applications in Perl and PHP within our  
infrastructure (Webauth, AFS, Kerberos, OpenLDAP).

Some examples of what we are planning on putting into the cookbook:

* How to bind to the LDAP directory
* How to extract data from the LDAP directory
* How to determine if a webauth'ed visitor belongs to a privgroup
* How to send email securely
* How to send email with an attachment
* How to store form data into MySQL (securely)
* How to display data in an HTML table from a text file
* How to display data in an HTML table from a MySQL query
* How to create logs
* How to setup MySQL-based sessions

We are also working on creating skins for some open source  
applications (Wordpress, Mediawiki and Drupal).

If you can write clean, easy to read code in PHP or Perl (or both!),  
we'd like to talk to you. If you have also developed code at Stanford,  
we'd *really* like to talk to you. The goal here is to create code  
other web developers on campus can use in their own apps, so you need  
to be able to write reliable, error-checked, understandable code.

If you have any questions, or would like to apply please contact Marco  
Wise at marco.wise at
