QuestionCasual contract tribulations Pin
ra-oul26-Apr-16 1:56

Hello, this is my first post. I came here for advice regarding casual contract work for programmers.

I'm a recent graduate, and I took on a casual contract with an organisation as the sole developer to build a non-commercial Java application and which would pay a set amount at the completion of the project. Because of the nature of software development work - shifting requirements, debugging and ongoing maintenance, etc. - I was a little worried about the nature of the contract, but I knew the people fairly well and trusted them to be fair, and I really needed the work!

Well, requirements did continue to shift, and new things added to the project, and the time-frame kept expanding, and I was eventually paid less and less per hour until in the end it was barely worth my time (and I didn't know how to say no to them!).

My question is: has any one else had experience with this kind of contract, and what was your experience like? How did you handle the contractual relationship when requirements continued to be added and changed? Was I completely idiotic to take on a contract with these conditions for this kind of work?

Thanks very much!
R.
