> Instead of submitting the anonymized data directly and only to the
> Harvard research team, we are using the CRAWDAD data repository to
> host the data and encourage other researchers to use it. Information

> Although we were under the impression that the resources available was
> $5000 total, we recently found out it was $5000 each year for 5 years
> ($25 000). That's great news. It allows for a more realistic budget
> and it will permit us to develop the project further and work more
> closely with our partners. It will be easier to dedicate the
> resources to work with other Wifidog groups to encourage them to share
> their data with CRAWDAD as well.
> Both jobs are for work that will take place this year only. Work will
> continue after that but we'll have another announcement for future
> Please send emails to Norman and the board will figure out a process
> to award the contracts if there are multiple applicants.
> CFT #1
> Wifidog development = 5-10 hours. 10-15 hours work total including
> meeting with partner. The job is to add to Wifidog's capability to
> export anonymized data. Right now we can't export geographic
> information. This work would benefit ISF and Wifidog by allowing us
> to properly identify the Wifidog hotspots without having redundancies
> show up in Google maps, which would confuse our users. The
> development work is estimated at between 5-10 hours of work.
> Additional time will need to be spent communicating with the ISF
> sysadmins to push the code into production and meeting with and
> communicating with the partner. Preference for this job will be given
> to an ISF volunteer and someone who has already worked on WifiDog.
> The work will take place over the next 2-3 months.
> Note: The work for the exporter has been initiated a few years ago by
> Benoît Grégoire and François Proulx and was done in order to allow for
> this function.
> CFT #2
> Project / Client Managment - 3 hours / month for 9 months. 27 hours total.
> The second contract is for a coordinator to work with the developer
> and the partner. This involves regular PM tasks of assessing and
> evaluating partner needs, ensuring deliverables are met, and
> communicating with the partner, as well as identifying opportunities
> for ISF to propose research questions that interest us. Skills needed
> for this job are either project management or research coordination.
> The board will appoint someone to choose amoung the responses to this
> Call For Tenders (assuming there are multiple responses). We ask
> that people respond as soon possible since our partner is eager for
> the work to start. Please send an email to Norman if you're
> interested. normang at normie.com
