What tpe of skills would i need to make a simple dating/frinds type site.
no-one is going to use it.
spelling 101 to start
nice to see that the typical OT responses make it into the programming forum
No shit huh.
To answer the poster I'd think you'd want some kind of PHP/MySQL setup.
Like Aimless suggested, you'd need a firm handle on a programming language/platform such as .NET, Java, or PHP. Probably most important is a solid database design. Writing the software for something like that isn't very difficult for an experienced programmer; creating a scaleable and efficient database design would be a tougher challenge in my opinion.
A PHP/MySQL system would offer alot of flexiblity. I would go with that if I had such a venture.
If you decide to undertake such a task, I wish you luck. The person who created thefacebook must be doing pretty well. Such a great way to earn advertising dollars and the software itself is really quite simple. The end product was obviously successful with college students. A couple of friends and I are trying to come up with another simple idea where we can gain by way of advertising dollars.
I wrote a online dating engine for a website at my last job. Shit was pretty huge.
