Hi I have a version of the application already built but isn't performing as I had hoped. I need a developer to help me improve the application in terms of performance and accuracy. Below are what I want to happen so be clear in your replies that you can perform this type of work. - Web scraping sort of works, but really needs to become multi-threaded and a lot more robust (currently breaks lots), the basic stack is below but I'm not adverse to other technologies being used. - The crawler aims to collect 100's millions of rows of data from numerous content networks, so the crawler needs to be able to manage that number of rows and the complications that bring to the table. - Post content to social networks, current app doesn't post in the correct format (weird categories) so that needs to be fixed.

We are in need of these tasks being completed ASAP so those who are fast and accurate are preferred! This could turn into more work if there is a quick turnaround and high quality document.

I created and currently maintain a Windows Powershell script that runs every 30 minutes, checks for new CSV files in a directory, opens each file in Excel, deletes columns/rows as needed, and extracts information of interest. It then cross-reference that information using a Vlookup function, and outputs certain information to a Powershell variable that is then e-mailed through Outlook. The current script gets the job done but is not efficient or reliable because it uses Excel as a COM Object in Powershell. I am looking for somebody who wants to improve and optimize that script: 1. Assess whether Powershell is the ideal tool for it. 2. Come up with a non-Excel based solution (no Excel COM Object used). 3. Add trend detection functionality to the script such that it can go through the CSV data and detect for certain columns when a downward or upward trend is present. It would then flag those trends and e-mail the user with a flag. 4. The script should be delivered in a maintainable/understandable...
