zemaits21510dSearch for some ways to improve your PHP API, try to show it to someone more senior, maybe you are missing some bits which are important.
What I'm trying to say you can't push all the responsibility onto these guys, it's your responsibility to make sure that it's easy to use and well documented. Maybe try making some proof of concepts, explanation implementations of how to use it.
Also you should involve yourself in recruiting process, at least help in preparing a decent advertisement and maybe go to interview for once. It can't be that bad.
woodworks66410dI want to ++ this, but I also refuse to ++ anything that mentions PHP.
PHP = self harm
yuiti5878d@zemaits I did try to search and consult some senior developers. The only thing they told me was to improve responses and change few entity relationships, which has been done already.
I blame mostly the guys that were before me or started with me, like the previous CTO and his team. It was their responsibility to work on the API back end, since I was originally only a front-end dev. I blame them because they left the projece and didn't do shit, literally.
But the guys that the CEO found to "help" me should at least be able to help with the project, judging from their CVs and LinkedIn profiles.
And the project is well documented: there's an illustrated wiki and some proof of concepts too, I even made a TL;DR cheat sheet. :/
I tried recruiting 2 developers once, but the CEO insisted on finding "good" developers he trusted.
