“"" Make sure that the scope and the timelines are extra clear and this team will deliver in spades.”""
Thank you so much for the very kind feedback, much appreciated and it was a pure pleasure working with you. A feedback such as this, should be a feather in any developer's cap and it sure is in ours!
As a rule, we would not take such a project unless we had seen the back end and the admin section, to see what it is that we have to migrate and redevelop, and in this case, we asked for the admin 3 times. Uncharacteristically, this time and to no one's fault, we ended up accepting the project hoping that the scope would be what we had expected it to be. Unfortunately, a project that had been estimated for 165 hours, ended up being a gigantic 1,300-hours project with over 13 Gigabyte of customer data to be migrated from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7, and among other things, much customization to be done. In client's own words, we ended up with a "brutal", "brutal" project, like "nothing we had expected before". But as the client kindly mentioned, we did not get "sick", we did not disappear and we did not waiver. We were available pretty much 24/7 and worked hard to finally finish this massive and "brutal' project. In doing so, we did not ask for extra money and if fact, refused renegotiations.
When a project takes longer than is expected, the team is usually not diligent enough, but in this case, we took a project that ended up being 8 times bigger than both of us had originally expected.
Thank you again for your kind words. ”
