It was decided that everyone should start working on the backend now, since there are still so much work left on the backend. Client also suggested he could add new members to the team for a week, if necessary. It reminded me of the famous Mythical Man-Month, namely “adding manpower to a late software project makes it later”. I was glad that it was deemed unnecessary to add manpower.
The scope of the project wasn’t crazy, but we definitely made some mistakes. Again, the hindsight is always 20 20. After deciding on MySQL, we should have put more manpower on the backend. Also, the decision of everyone working on the backend should come a couple of days earlier.
Anyway, there is no way that I am going to take anytime off this weekend…. It is exciting to work on the backend too. I have already changed some routes to return the correct results for my front end code.
