What is the minimum cost of installing a basic, by-default Open edX platform?
And there is an increasing market of overseas freelancers who work on a very low budget.
Freelancer.com recently posted this announcement: “We want to install Open edX on our VPS in a native manner. Our VPS is running Ubuntu 16.04. Budget $30-$250”.
The request, written with some grammatical errors, was even demanding a document describing the installation process, which was described as “a bit tricky”, “with some errors”.
Over 15 developers, mostly from India and Venezuela, responded to the request, trying to be hired for the job. The average bid was $162. Many freelancers were bidding $100.
