Hi,

I have a little project to complete , this is not original dev it consists in modifying existing ones ..
Estimate 2/3h to complete, will pay something for it. If works fine will have other projects...
PM if you wish to help. Thank you

2/3h as in 40 minutes? Or 2 to 3 hours?
Designing & building electrical circuits for over 25 years.  Screw Shield for Mega/Due/Uno,  Bobuino with ATMega1284P, & other '328P & '1284P creations & offerings at  my website.

2 to 3 hours ;) nothing is done in 40 minutes ... well.. some do , but I'm not looking for these ones  ]:D
There are 2 sketches to put in the same and a button to replace par rotary button, and lot of screens to remove (putting them on the same)

You know the rule: for every project that involvs software, just proceed this way:

1) Take the estimate and change the unit to the next bigger one: 2 - 3 hrs  ----> 2 - 3 days.

2) Square it: 2 -> 4; 3 -> 9.

So, expected time to developp it: 4 to 9 days. ]:D

hehe ;) you want to give a try gaston? PM your email! I will forward you

I used to be a developper in old times ...  :smiley-roll: at the dawn of JAVA , but I'm really not involved anymore

Maybe you should read that last phrase again (the todo). Do the work in your head and ask yourself: "Is this possible to do in 2 to 3 hours".
And then: "How long will I need to explain what I need to the programmer?"
I'm sure vffgaston his estimates are far closer to reality tan yours.

Do not PM me a question unless you are prepared to pay for consultancy.

When I finished my degree I "didn't recognize a computer from a chocolate tablet" (old -and opportunetly translated to english- spanish adage).

Then I learned (consecutively and -sometimes- simultaneously) code machine & assembler (8085/8086), basic (several dialects), pascal, dBase, (sure I forget some) and, finally C (arduino C, in fact).

Belive me: change units and square it. ;)

Regards.

I did. I compiled the program, started a few mods.

I'm sure not. I used to be involved even as my first job in dev, I'm able to make such estimations
And if it takes more than 3h, that's not an issue. Either I like the job and we go on (and for further projects), either I consider coming back to code. But I'm so busy right now for learning a new stuff... I will, but I need to have a prototype earlier than it

What do you need for? Sketches, PC application, buttons. Explain and we will estimate.

arthurie

sensor values are displayed on 2 screens. I want to change font (smaller) for them to be on the same screen (128x64 oled)
Then remove button function for rotary (to set a value)

I've done programs for companies 30 years ago. They seem to add things as fast as you program them.
Get paid by the hour is only way to go.

I did so (and have the same experience). The only effective way I know is to write the specifications down in a paper. It makes no difference if it is a formal contract or a bar paper napkin. (And it's much better if you repeat some of them than if they are poorly specified).

(The subject suggest me another ethnic discussion -I'm spaniard-: I thought this -improvising- was a national sport. Is not it?). :~
