I haven't got in for a while but dude, I want to rant.
This guy originally wanted a simple online shopping system, with the "cart" sent to WhatsApp. No big deal, most of it was done in 2 days.
Then he wanted geolocation so the app would show you the nearest sites. Sure, why not. I had never worked with something like that so it might be worth it to try and learn.
Then he wanted custom URLs. It took me a little but this wasn't in the plans...
Then a copy of the system but focused on workers instead of products.
And another for big providers.
Then an integration with a delivery service.
And more in the following weeks...
Dude. WTF, I was only paid some weeks and he keeps adding and adding stuff. All at the same time while the first still didn't have the final design. It's been 3 months.
I hate this kind of guys. I didn't know the kind but now I hate them.

    I wouldn't mind a tracking system that automatically learns, per developer, based on a brief description, how long it takes them on average, so it can automate spitting out quotes and confidence intervals for delivery time.

    Wonder how difficult that would be to make.

    maybe use tweet-length task descriptions, bag of words/1 hot vectors. do simple classification for starters, regression.

    If you're billing and he's paying, sounds like a great gig to me
