Re: recommendations for developers

Hi Birkir,


The bulk of our content runs on templates through a CMS, however we have
some smaller legacy sites that are not compliant and need updating. In many
cases the site creators are long gone. For the most part these are fairly
basic html, however some do have a bit more going on, for example elements
using javascript and jquery. Right now we are trying to come up with a plan
for these sites with the administration. I'm trying to do a little prep
work in case they turn to us and say "hire someone." I'm looking for
someone who can take notes like "headings do not follow logical structure"
and run with it, instead of having to be told which <H> level each heading
should be - that kind of thing. At the moment I'm just collecting names of
people we could contact to explore this further in the future, if/when we
are told to do so.

As for time commitment, it is hard to say at this point, but I should know
more in the coming weeks.

Hope that is enough to go on.
