    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.

    My advice would be to get a little more knowledgeable about what you're trying to accomplish from a technology perspective (whether you go with Java, etc). The more you know, the better you will be at guiding the programmer (and not be taken for a ride). Programmers are only tools (especially the freelancer types). Don't expect much input from them. I've been using Freelancer.com for some of my projects and they seem pretty good. Make sure you clearly define everything in the project scope and you know exactly what technologies need to be used. Also, make sure you test the crap out of the tool. There will be bugs. You can bet on it!

    Thanks, I'm pretty up to speed with what I need and could probably do it myself (although would take twice as long) but there's not enough hours in the day.

    C# is the preferred language, I'll check out freelancer.com

    Thanks for the feedback! :)
