I myself am a VB.NET programmer, but way too busy to spend time on my "pet projects". I'm looking for a helping hand on one of those, a to-do list management application. I began to work on it, but it's nowhere I want it to be.
I've attached some specs and a quick introduction to show what I'm talking about. Obviously, the tasks here are just...
“This is by far, very far, my most disappointing experience on eLance. I hired Lucky to keep developing a VB .NET, standalone application. The specs were very clearly defined in a PDF file, the existing code was well commented, etc. First he told me he couldn't work on it right away because he had to prepare for an exam, then went dark for several weeks after that exam, then asked a question which was already answered in details in the specs. He would bill 20 minutes of work one week, 30 minutes the next. When I eventually asked me to send anything he has done so far, he immediately said he would, and went dark for two more weeks, at which point I cancelled the job. All in all, in almost 3 months, I haven't seen a single line of code. NOT A SINGLE ONE.
Maybe I was unlucky, maybe it was a difficult period for him, maybe he didn't have the qualifications to work on this project and didn't tell me, or maybe he simply needed a contractor who would continually breathe on his neck so he would do something. I don't know. But as far as this project is concerned, this was a complete fraud and waste of time. Extremely disappointing.”
“This has been a frustrating project for me. as I was in the Process of moving back home from Bots to Zim. I actual completed the project, my dilemma was that I worked off line most of the time so did not use Tracker for billing processes. I have actually completed the system, I loved the application so much I actual use it for my Own project tasks, I have even made a windows 8 phone version of the application. Now that I am back in Zim, and settled, I will be happy to send you the code if you still want it.”
