Comparison Shopping Engine Seeks Programmer with Product Nomalization experience

1 New Member
We are seeking an individual who can has experince with product normalization. As a comparison shopping engine we get various offers (product listings) from hundreds of different merchants. We need to implement a method to consolidate the identical products. We currently receive merchant data feeds in XML formats that have no standardization . Some have product model numbers, some have SKU or UPC some don't have any. We currently have no control over the data received and we'd like to implement a product unification method or data cleansing system to help us match identical offers.

Has anyone out there done this? ---If Yes, need a job?

I'm looking to implement some *minimal* shopping cart. I've looked at a few 3rd party packages, and they're all way too involved for what I need. So, I'm thinking it might make sense to roll my own. Before diving in though, I'd like to have any recommendations or suggestions from any of you who have done or seen "bare bones" shopping carts/store fronts. I'd like to integrate it with an existing SQL Server database that holds the customer,...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
