Another day, another tragedy...
1,5 half year later 2 devs were able to deliver :
- custom authentication. Basically they did a very simple client credentials grant.
- a custom wrapper to manage windows services
- a custom job scheduling system
- a custom logging library to log everything to windows event viewer!!!!!!
- all csv reports are created using string interpolation WriteLine("'{varA}','{varB}'") like this...

There are a lot of defects in those functionalities and they delivered almost 0 business features.

    $200'000 down the drain?

    @heyheni less, but yes we are speaking here about US devs so such shitshows are not cheap.

    Did that happen without other people knowing what the devs were (not) doing? Were there quality measurements to make sure that progress was being made?

    1,5 years? Damn that a long time. I got 6 weeks of deadline for the same thing with an enormous amount of information with special cases. Add 2 weeks later for a proper permission and access system. Shit was painful but doable.

    Did they lack proper planning and documentation for each other?

    Sounds like a lack of good project management/jira

    This is what you get for not checking their skillz.
