Web Scraper

I made a web crawler for Craigslist, that uses Selenium / Codeception to defeat their JS CACHPAs. It’s super useful for a FEW people, there isn’t a commercial application here. I’m using it to get freelance work. Ask me an I’ll give you a password to check it out.


I’m selling access to this software. Try it for free. Tell me how to monetize it somehow.

  • You can use it if you pay me cash. I will only allow 5 people/companies to use it.
  • If you’re a DESIGNER, and want to use it, you may use it if you also get me freelance programming work. In other words any tech person who’s skills don’t overlap mine can use it.
  • You can use it if you can get me freelance work. I am an expert BDD / WordPress / PHP developer
  • You can have the source if you hire me full time. $100k/year, $5000 signing if you want me to move.
  • You can have the source code for $1000

Business Stakeholders: How to Describe a Software FEATURE

A feature from the biz perspective

What is a feature?
A feature is an aspect of software that is useful. Anything you can express, that is possible, and that you can afford, can be a feature. A bug is an aspect of software that isn’t useful.

Since we’re talking about development, we’re discussing software features that don’t exist yet. These are features that we would like to build, or existing features that we would like to make better. Describe a feature with should statements:

  • It should email all the clients once a month.
  • The client should have a setting page in the admin area.
  • The plugin should have a custom post type called GPS coordinates for each subscriber.
  • The div should show a timeline of Civil War battles in the footer area.

The next statement you should create is the reason for the feature you are requesting. What is the business value of this feature? Describe the reason by using a “Because”, or “So that”  or “In or that”

  • So that the clients are routinely updated.
  • In order that the user can change the settings.
  • Because we need to store the GPS data.

Alternatively, you can use Gherkin syntax for feature development.
