Looking for some programming assistance - willing to pay.

I often have little projects I'm working on and need a collaboration buddy or just someone to get the project started as I am learning programming.

Is there anyone out there willing to help out?

Example project....

Here is a project that will learn "x" IR codes and then use them to change the brightness level of an LED.

I am looking for someone that can add in the ability to save these codes in EEPROM so they will not have to be relearned upon power-up. The first few seconds after power it can listen for a new code sequence, if none are found, proceed with what is in memory.

Anyone interested in taking on this (and possibly other) project(s)?
