I get asked about this from time to time if/how developers can do local Drupal development. I'd be willing to go over some of the tools available for creating local development environements rapidly and securely.

Contract Work: About $5K, last mile, with local developer

I am developing a Drupal site for a client, which was latent for a year. Now it's back, but the coder who did most of that part of the work is no longer available.

I myself am not a Drupal coder, so need to find someone for that piece.

If you can afford 5-10 hours/week for 5-6 weeks, would you please look at the attached PDF and get back to me about possibly taking on the work?

Thank you!
