I am supporting an application used in a school community, for around 400 people. The interface is like a very simplified 'facebook for parents'.
This job would be to:
#1. Create a Rails script like Faker to create ~ 400 users in the test environment. Test environment only has ~ 10 users currently, not enough to reproduce performance errors. Reproduce the slow loading time for many users.
To try the search functionality in the app, you can sign up here in staging env:
(use a fake credit card: 4111 1111 1111 1111 and expiration: 04/17 to to sign up)
After signing up, go here to try the search functionality you will be improving: https://parentdb-staging.herokuapp.com/parents. The current number of users ~ 10 it is fast. At 400 it is slo.
Winning bidder: Will be really good at Rails, front and back. I have a lot more features for this app. Some are functional and web design, others are architecture, including turning it into a multi school platform. If this story goes well, we can try other stories.
