PHP Programming & CodeIgniter Development
Jun 2014 - Jan 2015
Initially Jirffey was great to work with - responsive, good communication and his work was excellent (PHP and CodeIgniter).
Later we tried to get him to build some web sites using our internal CMS and he simply did not get it. He could not seem to understand and apply our standards no matter how much time we spent training him. I don't get this because he's an intelligent guy. Maybe what it comes down to is that he likes to do things his way and not ours. The result was that he took 3 and 5 times as long to do a simple build as he should have and the quality of the HTML and CSS code was not good and did not follow our standards so we had to rebuild everything.
He was really good at writing CodeIgniter and php code, just no good at learning and applying our standards.
Over time he became less and less responsive until finally he ignored an important deadline that he'd promised to make and did not bother to reply at all when I told him he had missed it. If not for this I would have given him higher scores for communication and cooperation.
