2. Cover letter example for Delphi7 to XE migration Developer

Web, Mobile & Software Dev • Desktop Software Development
Hello

My name is Michael from Moskov (UTC+3)

I have been working with all Delphi versions starting from the first.

I like such type of tasks, I like to investigate, do research and accomplish what other people afraid to do.

On my previous job I often worked with legacy code, did much refactoring and optimization. I like to make programs better.

The only real problem in this job is a conversion to Unicode, based on my experience, unfortunately it is impossible to estimate how much work required to upgrade old app to Unicode without looking at it.

The other possible problems are not too complicated: using CharInSet, FormatSettings for date, upgrade 3rd party libraries.

If you are using BDE then it is time to get rid of it.

I would like to prepare unit tests first and use cases and then step-by-step do the conversion.

Maybe make sense to use XE8 instead of XE6, SQL14 instead of 2008

I used many component and utils for Delphi including JEDI, DeveloperExpress, TNT and SDL. Not familiar with EurikaLog, but worked with Madeexcept.

I am very attentive to details, always answer questions and polite in communications.

My rate for such type of work is 30$/hr, it is not high.

Let me know if you have any questions. I can do quick investigation and estimate the amount of work for free if you wish.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

3. Cover letter example for Desktop Browser Toolbar Project

Web, Mobile & Software Dev • Desktop Software Development
Hello sir

My name is William

I did toolbars which are similar to ObjectDock and RocketDock, but these are just applications which bind to desktop, not to particular applications.

Of course, I can bind it to any open application, but it is better to get more details before signing for this project.

I have a great experience in developing desktop application on C#+ MS SQL DB. If you need to incorporate this toolbar into existing code, then I need to see source code of your program first.

I can easily integrate any stats and display it in the desktop or web app - whatever you wish. I can develop a web site for stats - so stats can be accessible even if you are on a vacation in Egypt.

Should be this used for MAC too? I do not have much experience to code under it yet.

I like such projects like toolbars, transparent clocks, 3d screensavers, desktop calendar planner and so on.

I can guarantee that I am responsible and reliable person. I always in Skype and can quickly answer your questions.

My usual rate is 35$/hr, but to start this application we can negotiate it to 28$/hr. I am looking long-term projects because like to work on one project without interruptions.

Thank you for such opportunity.

Have a good day!!!

I agree with your budget and can start right now.

Let me know what reports do you want to get. Can I receive example you mentioned in the offer?

5. Cover letter example for Program conversion from C on C#

Web, Mobile & Software Dev • Desktop Software Development
Hello mister,

This is my passionate sphere to work with such devices. 

More than two years I work with biometric scanners for accounting working time of employees. We have scanners, which work using Windows CE and Linux OS.

I use C, C++ and C# to write different application for portable devices on my work, such as: listening to COM ports and save data into text files, send text files into COM port, read data in real-time and interact with user using display and keyboard.

Usually such task may take 1-2 days to learn code, rewrite it and test. I think that your task is even simple than my current tasks, so this is why I offer you to do it with no payment, just for the positive feedback. 

You have no risks. When you can provide me source code so I can evaluate and tell you when it can be ready?

Do you have an idea how it can be tested when it is done? Do you have emulator? If NO, then can you give me a name of your device, so I will try to find the emulator in the Internet.

Thank you for opportunity!
