We need a refresh of our public web site.
Currently it's built on a proprietary CMS (yes, you read that correctly).
We're looking for a simple multi-page layout using a bootstrap grid with (the current thinking is) the following pages:
2) Second Level
3) News layouts for links to publications for articles (with pub l...
“Adam is a rare talent and far beyond what you will normally find on Elance. He is a real student of art and design and can bring the kind of attention and critical thinking to a project which you normally can only get from a major advertising agency. ”
“I usually ignore feedback that is all 5's as not useful.
This feedback is real.
We gave Imran a task and got back rock-solid, tight code. He's incredibly professional. He's seems to always be at his desk. I'm in NYC and he's 10hrs away and always answers in minutes. He really knows his stuff and can make suggestions and improvements to your requirements.
Our lead dev here said we couldn't get good UI code from a 'developer'. He said we need a UI / UX expert. On this morning's call he said, 'I looked at Imran's code, and I'll have to eat my hat on that one. It's excellent."
“A perfect project which grown my skills more high in quality and perfection. I always look for projects like this one. The client has been really good and communicated his requirements really well. Looking forward to work the client again. Thanks ”
Job details are only viewable by client and freelancer.
“Stefan has been an excellent all-round resource for us. He took our business requirements and supplemented them with his own intimate knowledge of the application area. He always made his dates and every delivery was well tested and bug-free.
He's been very generous with his time and always pro-active and easy to reach.
A first-class resource.”
We need some help with a protovis job.
I am looking for some implementation help and some general thoughts.
I have a Stacked Column Chart I would like to create.
Each column would have two data segments.
I have a third data segment that I would like to overlay on a different axis.
I've attached an idea of what we need.
“Stefan is an excellent young developer. Our project dealt with some fairly complicated authentication issues and he provided an excellent solution.
He has an ability to simplify a complex process which is a rare thing in a young developer. His code is clean and compact, and he implemented many UI ideas on his own which made the small application very user friendly.
Stefan is going to be an Elance star. Lucky to get him first.”
“Nice guy. Very quick to reply and deliver. Understood issues and deliverable perfectly. Could have spent a little more time to QA his work but it was pretty rushed, so I understand. Has expressed desire to keep cleaning up so I'm sure it will all be fine. ”
“Fixed some small bugs but in first main task delivered non-functional product. Not interested in debugging anything. Prob fine for simple web site. But needs constant stroking and hand-holding. Not able to work on team or with others' code. Highly negative. Not productive in Agile environment. Complains constantly about everything.
Did refund money in an effort to keep from getting poor feedback. Evaluates all tasks and effort based on whether he can get out of it without a bad review if he fails to deliver. Constantly asks for good feed back if he cannot deliver but doesn't charge.”
“The client is idiosyncratic, does not understand the difference between agile programming and bad programming, he thinks that fast-quirky-fixing which solves one problem and creates many others (dormant) is agile programming. He says that senior programmers have worked on the project earlier, when the reality is, its a code example of 'what not to do'. Basic programming and database design is incorrect. When I asked some questions and asked for time to refctor the code, before I can get to bugs, he said 'I don't have time for this', period.
The client initially awarded the job for only 4 days and I told him that I cannot put my years of hard built reputation at risk for 4days. So he ensured me that he will not give any negative feedback even when things go bad in the 4 days.
When I got to see the code on day 1, it was a hell-broke-lose code. It was worst than I could imagine. I gathered courage to fix things but the client started putting a clock on my head, saying things like - this task MUST take only 20minutes and that one MUST take 10minutes. All this to a new guy handling a spaghetti code.
I was alarmed and I asked the client to close the project on day2 of the job. Somehow he persuaded me to continue and try things out.
Things never got better, they only got worse. The job lasted for 13hours and I was just paid for 3hours. I refunded the rest of the hours promptly.
But then it seems that this client chose to leave some negative feedback and teach me lesson that I knew is going to happen on day2 of the job, I just got persuaded to let it happen, my mistake. He can lie too, on the internet.
Well, I have clarified things and put forth my perspective for future clients and the rest is upto them to decide. Looking all the earlier good feedbacks I have got and this nasty one from a 'special case client'.”
“*Moreover, the truth is, he never executed the contract. I signed/executed and contract and day 1 but he never counter executed the contract in the last 20days. I have been asking him for executing it repeatedly over the last 20days (atleast 10times) but he was avoiding it at all cost, God knows why.
*Around day 18 he started blaming me for a lot of broken stuff on the dev site. Only a couple of days later, he found out that it was one of their own mistake which was breaking stuff. But he did not apologize, rather he grew more restless and aggressive and started calling me names, at which point I just sent him a refund and cancelled the job from my end.
With that ''amazing'' quality code that he and his so called senior developers have written, the blame game and with that continuous avoidance of contract signing- Does he has any right to talk about quality, expertise, professionalism? I don''t think so.”
