A friend of mine invited me to a project he was given. So basically is a flutter project already started by a guy on Fiverr... I'm just mad at the code the guy wrote! Now we have to refactor the ENTIRE code because the guy didn't know what he was doing!!!

This is my 1st rant, if i did something wrong, please rant at the comment section

    I can understand your frustration as I sit here with the whole team working under a deadline to revive a dysfunctional report generation app that was written by the least experienced dude, because we decided to hand that project to him to keep him busy, assuming that it wasn't possible to screw up something as simple like this.

    And now that the business development team needs the reports urgently, we discover that the whole application is a shit dump where not even the basic login works properly.

    People who take up coding to just make some easy bucks for the minimum level of effort are terrible terrible people with a special place in hell for them.

    If you know that some guy from Fiverr touched the codebase, just expect to start from zero. Actually, expect it whenever something was a one-man show to be on the safe side.

    @saucyatom I may agree with first point, but not second.
    By your definition, the moment a Startup hires a second developer they should scratch everything.

    @NoToJavaScript The second was more tongue-in-cheek. Of course also 1 person can write great code and a larger team can make terrible spaghetti (then possibly too many cooks). If the startup's first developer knew what he's doing, great, but an intern without any real experience might have created an unmaintainable mess.

    @saucyatom If the first developer didn’t have any idea of what he was doing, start up would’ve failed before hiring second lol.

    But Yes I agree for interns. And you need to work closely with new junior devs hired.

    @NoToJavaScript Either that or they're going by "fake it 'til you make it" ;)

    @saucyatom this fails ar first "real" client.

    But yeah they can stay in "pre lunch" phase for years soaking up investement money
