At a "guided internship".

Task: Develop a complete web application form

Was assigned to a team of 7 where all are "Frontend Developers" who have never heard terms like "bootstrap" or "mobile-first web pages".
That aside, all are seniors in age and qualifications, hence me telling them something to do is "ordering them around". And if I tell them to leave things to me, they be like "No, we wanna contribute and do the Frontend, as these things don't matter, inline css just works fine". 🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️

Why Lord? Just why?

    @Alice i don't know bootstrap either or wordpress , isn't better to make it from scratch?

    In time it becames easier to write and faster than usual?

    Am i right?

    @Alice yeah, I believe in making everything from scratch too. But:

    1. Deadlines are pretty tiny here.
    2. I told them to implement the features all by themselves if they can (such as the grid layouts that renders different layouts for mobile and desktop devices), but they can't do that either. 🤷🏻‍♂️

    @ClearOFf, I don't know many things either. But I (personally) think that any project/internship should be spent learning and not just for the certificate of completion.

    Plus reinventing the wheel is not always the best option. Is it?
