We need someone to take 90 HUGE spreadsheets with approximately 60,000 to 100,000 rows on each spreadsheet (and up to 25 columns of data on each row), and sort and filter that data into approximately 40-45 different categories, as well as clean it up from unwanted data. In order to find the right data you will need to enter on average 5 to 10 keywords, (sometimes more and sometimes less), in the main column to find all the relevant data for that category of keywords. After you have filtered and combined the data from the 90 spreadsheets (90 days of data) into 40-45 much smaller spreadsheets, that are categorized for the relevant keywords, you will need to filter out approximately 50% of the data that is unwanted. You will need to do this for each of the 40-45 spreadsheets and then send them all back to us, (upload via dropbox), filtered, sorted and cleaned up. A couple of important things: 1. We want this done ASAP, so unless you are ready to start working on this straight...

This is a simple project of scraping about 5000 records from a website. This will involve enumerating all these records and extracting data from HTML and into an importable format (eg. CSV, XML). You may use a method of your choice for extracting this data (Python, PHP or any type of programming language). The output of this task will not be the script but the data. More info will be provided later. This is a one time project but may have more work upon completion.

I have an existing codebase of an app that is almost complete and we need to finish the remaining aspects of the app ASAP before our intended launch date of August 15th (allowing 7 days for app store approval before that). Only apply if you're very talented and think you'll be able to guarantee on-time delivery once you have the full specifications from me (I'll be giving lightning fast feedback and responding to all questions ASAP to help you keep moving). THIS IS AN ALL OR NOTHING DEAL. Be a super-hero and finish on time and you will be rewarded with great pay, and more work will probably come your way as we continue to iterate on the app. The work isn't valuable to us if it's finished late. We have a swift app set up with Parse that needs some bug fixing and some cloud code (server code) written and deployed. The app shows upcoming events to university students at two universities in Philadelphia. The interface is Mailbox-like where you have a tab to see all upcoming events...

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...

Performance / Responsive We have recently discovered that our website is not performing optimally and as a result have taken some actions, however, need your assistance to take more. The website is www.novatti.com, is a WordPress site and within a few days, hosting will be moved to the AWS environment. It runs a customised theme and is using WP 4.2.3.

Having said this, we will internally be undertaking a content restructure to improve our navigation to our products. The areas we need your assistance in are: A. PERFORMANCE / RESPONSIVENESS 1. We conducted a Google test which highlights that the WordPress code, scripts etc are 'bloated' and a bit messy, load times are slow and we need this all cleaned up. We will need you to review the report (supplied upon successful application) and make the actual improvements to the site. You may use plugins to perform these...

Green Pasture Properties is seeking an experienced Excel Data Specialist for 2-5/hrs of work per week, with the potential for 5-10/hrs per week in the future. The work will include data mining, data scraping, data sorting, and data entry. I will supply you with large excel spreadsheets, typically with 10-20 columns and up to 1,000+ rows in some cases. Each spreadsheet is missing critical information that can only be found on the web. I will supply you with the exact website to find the information needed. You will simply need to take certain data and enter it into the correct row/cell within the existing spreadsheet. Experience with automation tools such as iMacros will be extremely helpful for this work. For my first spreadsheet, the workload should not take more than 2-3 hours. If you're able to complete this work proficiently, I will send you more spreadsheets to help with.

Need a expert level Python or Bash Shell scripting developer This is a brief overview. Every organization has some basic security baselines, such as default user/pass should not be there, default sites should not be there on the browsers, default service should not be running on each server etc. Similarly we have such security standards with servers such as IIS, OS, Web server, Linux, DB servers, network devices, there is a baseline security standards. The challenge we are facing is that every year they have to review a lot of servers and devices per the security standards. The goal is to automate this process so the developer is required to write a python script / shell script / or any program which can connect to the remote server, check settings to see if it is compliant to the security standards and produce a report on the security audit. In the report, if compliant say compliant and reason and if non compliant reason for non compliant for each server as well as group of servers....
