Search - "clueless partners"
They gave me a file, .php, that was the entire webapp. THE ENTIRE THING IN A SINGLE FILE. It's frustrating that I have to organize this before I even start working on my tasks.
I guess its not super horrible since it's a rookie project but it's still horribly and unnecessarily time consuming.6
The one thing I really don't like is when they give me buggy code to work on. I spend more time debugging than actually writing new stuff. Sometimes the bugs are hard to find to like someone writing a 500 line function that could have been separated into other tasks. This is what sucks about being a student, other students are simply unaware of their horrible code and yet they ask "Why'd I get a C in the final?"
The worst part is being assigned a random partner for a project and the person is absolutely clueless about the class.
Just things I've had to deal with and I'm sure most of us have as well1
