OldRideTrader.com allows individuals as well as car dealers to post info and photos of their cars for sale. A developer created this website using WordPress.  It was developed with individual users in mind, so it was only possible to hand key one car’s info at a time. Later, the site owner wanted to allow car dealers to upload their cars info in bulk  and to update the info as often as necessary. My role was to create the file format and the  routines to allow that. A cron job runs nightly and either use FTP, or directly connect to the dealer’s server and read the data and upload it to oldRideTrader.com

Skills: FTP, Cron, PHP and MySql.
