Warning, I'm going to vent a bit...If you read my topic in the suggestion forum, you would be aware that I'm working on a website for a college project.
Fact is, I'm getting pretty tired, because, once again, I'm a one man team.
2 years ago, at another college, I had an iPhone game project, scaled for 3 persons for 2 weeks. In the end we were only 2 to do. I coded 95% of the game, but I'm not much complaining about my teammate, because he did help with the report, presentation, visual/sound effect, and showed support.
Last year, another project with a robot, group of 2, 100% of the code is me, 50% of the report is from me, the other 50% were fully corrected by me...
Now, I'm handling a search module for a website, 3 persons including me ( other teammate are on other module ). Both aren't native French, so it's pretty hard to explain to one of them. But at the very least, what I give to him his done in one way or another.
The other person in my ground… I spent 4 hours setting up a development environment, in vain. The computer's Windows is simply, busted ( including the keyboard which has some key which simply doesn't work ).
Then, as we are developing, I handed out different task, I prepared most of the logic ( think of cooking recipe ), which just needed to be applied to write the code. But I had to remain behind her because she would ask question every minutes.
Then as a test ( you may not realize but I often test people, even on Shuu xD ), I gave a very simple task for a developer ( 4th year of engineering in my case ). Take this sentence "action,rts,fps". I just want a PHP function which split this into separate words, using the comma as a separator. HALF AN HOUR GOD******, before asking me for advice. In 5 minutes if not less, after 3 Google search, I had the function…
Now for tomorrow, I wanted the result of the search displayed in a table. Well, I got the table, but it wasn't generated in PHP and was just a simple HTML file ( think of having an empty search result on Shuu ). Let me say that this is one of the most basic stuff student learn in PHP and is almost the first lesson if not the first. Myself I could do it in a just a few minutes, but I had to give out some task, just to be fair. Considering the level, I decided to go with this VERY easy task, but I had redo pretty much all the job. Even if it takes an handful of minutes for me to do it, I feel like I'm getting dragged down.
Worst is I'm sharing credits over this work, especially since I have already spent over 12 hours of my free time to get this module running like it should, and they must have spent like, 1 hour maximum, considering what I have given out, not that I can give complicated task... Sadly, I'm the patient type, and quite stoic but since I'm posting here, I guess my patience is running out, and that's not good.
