I'm looking to develop my own customer facing system that pulls infomation from web service and displays this to the user. I've been recommended to find someone who is familiar with Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) in relation to XML WebServices, in order to carry out this work. I don't really have the time to sort it out myself so was wandering if anyone has used odesk or similar to good effect? Also, I can provide examples of similar services which the programmer could possibly reverse engineer. Is that possible? Wasn't sure where to post this, so mods please move is necessary.
