Developing enhancements to a Pocket PC application

108 hrs @ $16.67/hr
Earned $1,800
“Shane was highly available and absolutely responsive and correct.&nbsp;<br />To the extent I can judge he also proved to be technically competent.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<br />Two areas for improvement experienced which influenced negatlively respect of budget and deadlines were:<br />1) insufficient attention paid to all details&nbsp;of specs<br />2)&nbsp;insufficient testing of delivered code<br />We came to detect and fix all issues, but this costed more than expected in term of both parties' effort.&nbsp;<br />I guess that a joint sspecs review conducted upfront could have helped making things go smoother.”
