I'm an analyst web developer and development consultant on Microsoft technologies. My main focus is in Asp.net MVC, CSS3, HTML5, Javascript, jQuery, C#, and T-SQL. I'm a contractor by nature working around EU.

comment How important is a good coding style for the decision to hire a programmer?
@Job. Unless someone doesn't write C# code as if it was old Fortran (80 column fixed layout anyone?) then I still think that coding style can be asked to be obeyed. If someone is a great developer you can remind them of improving their style (or let them justify their style over ours). That's what code reviewing is for. Any code can be fast reformatted but at least naming conventions should be followed. But it is by no means a red flag for hire. Shouldn't be.

comment How important is a good coding style for the decision to hire a programmer?
@S.Lott: Formatting someone else's code is actually rather simple these days directly in the IDE. But what I find problematic with different coding style and development IDE settings is CVS integration because people may just open other people's files and use different indentation character or things like that. Comparing files with DIFF tool shows lots of changes which are in fact just false positives. And may be that files didn't change at all. Not to even think about merging two edited versions by developers with different style settings.

comment How important is a good coding style for the decision to hire a programmer?
@Job: Not necessarily because StyleCop allows adding additional rules. I know I've written two of them that enforced TABs over SPACEs which wasn't there in the first place. But the idea is that coding style can be forced which will make it much easier to have uniform code.

comment How to overcome the “being fed up” on a project
If you wait for someone to cancel it, you'll feel like a failure: this sounds similar to dumping a girlfriend before she does. :) Hence I can't disagree with this statement. ;)

I expect to get paid the first third of the whole sum in the next month or more likely in the second.

I'm well aware of the triangle. Loooong time ago I studied MSF deeply. The thing is I needed the work I knew it will be late, and I had no control of any triangle corner. None. Everything was set so I knew it will be partially a death march project. But I am an optimist and I still believe it can be done. With less recompensation but the end product may be delivered.

All parties are aware of invalid deadlines from day one when I took the project. I informed them at the beginning when I took the project. But even I thought it would go faster. Which is not. The product way more complex than initially thought. And it has to be to be useful Otherwise it just won't be.

AD increased productivity: it's true I don't use bug tracking, because there's no systematic testing being done here. End client users are the ones that report bugs. But they are just those that are of very high importance/priority. I try to write as good code as possible to not slip in any stupid bugs and especially not those that get in because things were written in a hurry. I refactor all the time and have very clean code so I find my own code very maintainable (proven on multi dev projects as well).
