Description & Details

We are a small but multi-faceted organization which maintains both a physical archive and an online archive. We run a couple of web servers, a MySQL database, as well as some older Windows-based database applications.

We are gradually updating our website and databases, requiring us to modify, update and sometimes replace existing features and apps.

Our approach, wherever possible, is to use open-source software and to make our website accessible to users using different browsers and operating systems, as well as to users in rural and other areas whose Internet access may be slower.

We are looking for volunteers who have some or all of the following skills :

  • 1) Maintaining and when needed troubleshooting applications running on a web server running Linux and Apache, and some PHP and java applications;
  • 2) Maintaining and improving databases (MySQL and Borland), and possibly creating some new apps to manage and disseminate specialized types of information;
  • 3) Updating and improving appearance and functionality of particular website pages or sections.

    We have a small office in downtown Toronto. The office has been closed for the COVID-19 pandemic, so at this point all work would be done remotely, using a virtual environment to develop and test databases and applications.

    Minimum hours per week

    Task requirements

    Solid knowledge of computer hardware and software, including Linux, MySQL, and Apache.
