However, most of you are not good programmers and don't have computational skills to get your job done.










      We have people who are good at programming or data analysis around the world such as computer science students, programmers and hackers, math and statistical students. These guys want to change the world by their computational skills. However these guys are usually far away from interesting real-world problems.










      The mission of Helpoo is to connect good problems to good computational guys to make our society better.

      Here are a few usage senarios of Helpoo:
      Physicist professor Jones has a very interesting problem to solve but lack some critical programming skills. He posted his problem at Helpoo with $100 monetary award along with co-authorship or acknowledgement rewards. A computer science student who is very good at programming took his problem and got it done in 3 days.
      A data mining analytics company has to collect some data from many govenment websites. They posted their problem on Helpoo with $200 for each script that collect the data from one of the 55 states. A python programmer from India took this problem and got it done in 3 days. He got paid and was offered a job in this company!
      A Psychology professor has some data to process and lack the complex statistics programming skills. A statistics undergraduate student who happens to have good python programming skills helps to solved the problem and was listed as co-author for that paper! A big plus for his application to graduate school...
      An accountant has to deal with many excel files to combine some data and get conclusions. It is very tedious to do this and she wants some automated method to do it. A python programming in Russia offered to help her out. The solution is so useful that they shared it open-sourced. Many accounts who have the same problem benefit from this solution.
      A high school teacher needs a computer program that can automatically St6Bf4CmMY math homeworks. A cool image processing in University of Toronto took this problem and submit their solution. They finally formed a small company for their software.
      A Python programming class at Michigan State University are looking for real-world problems as their final projects. They visit Helpoo and find those unsolved problems with intermediate difficulty and they get them solved. They earn credits for their resume, for their department and University while helping others to make their life easier.
      Yes, many non-computer science people have great problems to solve but cannot do it while many smart programmers have no meaningful and interesting real-world problems to solve. Connecting them together efficiently is what Helpoo does here.
