“This contractor is able to write plugins and fix issues related to them, however if they are completing works done by another contractor and uploading files to an existing site, expect there to be issues with their updates to original works.
They do not test and check they work according to your instructions, they forget what your requirements are, leaving you spending a lot of time ever proving a point to them, with evidence from yourself; and or checking and testing their work only to find more issues. They do however try their best to help you, but sadly for me it wasn't good enough.
This contractor spend 5 months carrying out works for my site developments, some if which were successful, however they told me they understood the requirement completely thus I awarded the job to them. They told me it would take 5 weeks to complete it took 5 months :-( (Not good if you have investors waiting to see progress and you have a deadline to start trading).
I had to extended every milestone due to the issues they faced and they understanding of what the requirement were hoping in vain there will be no more issues. I have paid the developer only so I can move on, they have consistently asked me to pay for works, that they have messed up and blamed it on old code from other developers.
Fortunately I had keep original sites and was able to check processes only to find, the process on the original sites did not have the issues I found with their works. Some they fixed, others they didn't so I am know left with sites that have a number of issues related to their work.
Bottom line is, they are good for very some projects, simple plugins and adaptions,
would i use them again?
Yes for very small jobs
