The most meaningful was one of the easiest in my career, it was to program a prototype for a company developing a way to clean up water turbines used for hydro-generators for electricity plants.

The ones I am most proud of are three. My first one, where I did a customer so happy that he rented me for a second project to repeat what I did in the first machine to another two and payed even a bunch extra (from which I didn't see a cent Dead | X| ).
The second one was a project where the PL of my direct customer blamed on me and complained to my boss telling a lot of crap, and then when I finished, the OEM End customer of the project forced him to apologize to me and asked him to rent me again to do the changes of the next two stations of the line.
The third one was the biggest of my career so far, I had multiple roles in that project (PL, Chief in the field, Senior PLC dev, only Robotic programer, training newbies...) at the beginning I was blamed by my boss because I used so much time to get the offer done (clarifying the specs with the customer) once finished I had a 1.7 million € superavit due to my concrete specs (all what was not described, was payed extra as not part of the contract). This time I got a bonus for that in my yearly revision, a one time 500€ payment. I started looking for something else that same day.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
