The Job: Automating the administration of an existing online non-
profit educational (school level) investment game.
We are in Canada. Citizenship not applicable. Virtual is fine.
What the scripts will need to do: Each registrant needs to be
able to register online, and have a password protected portfolio set
up automatically. To have some "fun money" assigned to the
portfolio, with which the registrant can buy/sell stocks. Stock
symbol and delayed stock price quotes to be incorporated into the
portfolio view and the balance of fun money to be adjusted
accordingly. The total value of each Portfolio need to be collected
weekly and listed on a results web-page. Administrative copies of
all portfolios/pwds set up will need to go to the administrator, and a
copy will need to be e-mailed to the applicable registrant. The
ability for the game administrator to clear all portfolios at games
end will need to be incorporated.
The Urgency: Unfortunately, the previous script writer who was
hired to do the job last March has disappeared without leaving any
forwarding address or scripts. The next 'game' corresponds with
the upcoming school year. Hence, the urgency.
