Hi Friends,
Today I am here to discuss a personal issue with you all.
I am a Junior web developer in a start-up company ....with a degree in computer science.
I am a very hard worker, i am crazy about web development and I am very very intelligent....ok now , I am not boasting abt myself...
I secured the third highest position in engineering school , with a distinction in every other subject , during my years in college....
recently I joined a start up company , and have been working for that company since about a year , had my salary reviewed in december , though wasn't increased much....
I am still working for about 5 $ per hour(Work from home).....but since my salary has been raised , I am feeling my employer is being a bit harsh on me.....during the last month I was given a project to work on using CakePhp......
I started the project around 15th of feb....I was completely new to cakephp and had to study from scratch .....my employer knows that.....even then I managed to set up the project and complete the task by 28th feb....less than 2 weeks...

more important , my employer gave me the address of the wrong repository folder twice, so i set up the project thrice during 5 days...so it took me 5 days to set up the project.....

I worked day and night studying and working on the task like crazy people ...even affecting my health....and completed the task in 9-10 days.....

moreover I didn't charge him for the time it took me to study Cakephp.....charging in total only 39 hrs ....for the complete setup and task....

Even then I was not appreciated and was told I didn't work on the other projects , when I was assigned No tasks from the other projects during the 2 weeks at all....

If you are still reading my post ....and not bored by my story, I would like to know....how much time is required on average to learn CakePhp and finish a task of medium complexity by an average person....

and how much per hour charges should a person get on average for a cakephp project when working from home.

Ps: I am from melbourne and 5$ is just nothing, I have been working for 5$ just to learn and enhance my career , while keeping the stress level low...
Thanks.
