I usually don't work for indian clients. But when I do, they make sure I don't get paid.
Some highlights from my last project,
Client: Do you know ERPnext?
Me: No, but I am good at python.
Client: My boss wants me to find a guy who can create barcode generator for erpnext.
Me: I can use pyBarcode to do it.
This is exciting I thought. I get to learn a new framework. Start working on it. Not an hour passes by,
Client: hey can you remove this menu item?
Me: Which one?
Client: Also can you add the dashboard icons to left sidebar? Like Odoo? Do you know it? It is also python based.
Me: Then why don't you just use Odoo instead?
Client: My boss wants it. He doesn't understand computers. He is pissing mr off.
Me: Then how come he suggested erpnext?
Client: His friend told him.
For the next 3 days he has me working on these UI tweaks, never mentions barcode again.
But I finish the barcode stuff. Tripple check everything to make sure they work. Tell him to check so I can get paid. Guy asks his boss to check.
Boss > Client: It doesn't work
Me: What doesn't work?
Boss > Client: Everything!
Client: I actually tested everything and they work. My boss doesn't know how to use it. He is very old.
Makes me make more changes and finally when I ask for the work done so far,
Client: Boss didn't come to office today. I'll get you paid. Please try to understand my situation.
Me thinking, "mofo your boss didn't hire me,l. You did". But I keep calm and tell him I won't work until I get paid 50%.
3 days passed. No reply. Set his skype status to "Away" forever.
*spidey sense tells me I'm not getting paid, again*
U am beyond pissed and burnt out. I fucking wish there was a mafia I can request to collect my fucking money from them.20
Half a year ago, I got fired in my job. The reason was the same always bullshit; we have very little clients, economy nowadays is terribly bad, our priorities are different now than when we hired you, etc.
The last week I spent there, I heard something about my poor performance and programming skills, and that pissed me off a lot. For six months I worked on a laravel web app for managing customers, tasks and invoices, a fucking CRM, but made specifically for that company just because they didn't know sugar, odoo, prime or whatever.
Parallel to the crappy CRM, I was told to patch some PrestaShop, WordPress and plain sites, and it was hard to communicate with customers, management ignored every email I sent, and all I was told to do was "do as they say".
The result was shit, obviously, and my work showed much less skill, knowledge and expertise than I really have.
After that, I spent a few months unemployed, studying and working as a waiter just to survive, because my contract didn't comply with unemployment office requirements for a pay.
Then I got this job, on an analytics company where guess what, I'm told to write a fucking laravel web app for managing customers, invoices and tasks. In the meantime, I design websites, and communication with customers is shit, and management ignores every single mail I send.
My salary is eight hundred putos euros again, and will contract is wet shit.
I know, maybe I am "not that good" to earn a 3000€+ salary and have a good team support.
But I'm not */that/* bad.5
I have an odoo instance inside docker. Long story short, I was checking visitors of my instance and I saw this:
What is this?9
What is the best way to work on a project with a team?, I mean, how to use git, runbots, scrum, kanbans, modeling, and the most important the deadline... D:6
working with odoo is like being inlove with a terribly annoying person.
"I really like you, but wtf?"
odoo keeps showing nameerror: name 'id' is not defined.
like bruh, 'id' is in default, the primary key of my fucking model. why the hell cant i reference it
Has anyone heard about Bench and Frappe framework?
It is a very good python, open source framework.
It sets up almost everything for you when you want to start a project.
I found this framework, when I was searching for an open source ERP built on python, since Odoo went commercial. -_-
After searching, I found Frappe framework. It is a small community, but the framework has potential in my opinion.
Just wanted to pinpoint this very good framework.
Now every time I want to start a new project, I do not need to to all the set ups, like database, user authentication, user permission, etc. The framework does it for you.
NOTE: I am not and I do not have any connection with the devs and this company. I am just a user of this framework, and just wanted to suggest to you and take a look.

Anyone ever used odoo?
i swear i don’t use it anymore.
hard install. hard to use plugin. changed my setting and create account on windows without permit. wtf!!?
very hot head. #slang in thai2
So I'm sitting here trying to bodge my way through a member system. These fucknuts really made a bad system..
The task: Export a list of users and their info.
Is there an API available? No, who the fuck would need that shit, even tho the system is built upon Odoo, which has an API!
But it has an export function, you just have to log in and press the right sequence of buttons, because you need the running ID...
Here I discovered the first of many security flaws... "What happens if I post the wrong ID?"... Well, I get access to a file that has nothing to do with me or my users.... What?
Well after some fiddling It works, but holy fuck I found a lot of bugs. And this is a system that is launching in 7 days for us.. Some users have been on it for a year....
How can they ship this bad a product? There's absolute no documentation only a 15-page manual. Guess they don't want developers to develop shit that works in junction with theirs.1
Any suggestion about odoo partnership subscription, we sell odoo community as saas in our servers.1
