I guess, but not nearly as effective as being in a good team with good programmers who know their stuff.
At least I knew what SQL injection was when I read that I shouldn't do that anymore Laugh | :laugh:
So with this project I'm not learning anything.
You learning what can go wrong, and the most common pitfalls.

In this particular case this new client will give me some new projects in the new year.
Which they probably won't do if I'm charging two to three times the price their former programmer did.
I'm seeing it as an investment while still making some money Wink | ;)
That's management-voodoo. As a worker, you get asked back only if you deliver.

As a company, it's always a risk taking on projects that were set up by other companies.
Like buying company shares blindfolded, usually. It's not like they look at the code they are buying Big Grin | :-D

There's also a big difference between inheriting a project from a coworker who's still around for questions and a project that was written by a different company.
The former is way more awkward when you're complaining about your apparently dumb coworker who obviously doesn't understand what the hell he's doing Laugh | :laugh:
Doesn't matter to the employer. Explain they made a bad investment before, and that you're expensive because you fix it.

Don't like it? Find someone else to fix it.
