I can imagine! What would you consider a "slow start"? How soon into a new contract do you feel like you're really doing the best work that you can? Do you tend to take on projects that stretch you well outside your skillset or are you often working in areas where you already have a lot of expertise?


I'd want to be pretty confident quickly. It does depend on the size of the code base and how long the engagement might be.

Normally people want to see some results quickly, so doing things well outside my skillset isn't normally viable in that situation.
