interfaceless dating service for devs?

Description
okay hear me out. I'm far from the first person to suggest a dev only dating app. but I think I've got a good twist here: theres no front end. what? yup. some documentation, a REST API, maybe some complex search system like elastic or something SQL based. but definitely no front end. if you want to meet a dev, you better be writing some code. and when you finally meet someone, you've already got something really cool in common: you both wrote a client, probably in different ways. in different languages. and if code sharing isn't the perfect first date among devs, I don't know what is.

    ๐Ÿคจa dating app the devs have to build the front end too, I guess that could work except now i have to determine characteristics of another person from only their code.

    Sounds like it'd be awesome til I ended up trying something dumb, breaking the code and fuck up the relationship as a result.
  • 2
    But then I guess that would be like real life so you might actually be onto something...๐Ÿค”

    Rest API is a too complete interface.

    I don't think I could be bothered. I'd rather die single then. Too lazy.

    1 female reviewing code from 500 suiters. Until society gets its equality balance sorted this will be the reality. Forget it, nonstarter. Plus who the fuck wants to talk about code the whole fucking time.

    @Codex404 You know now that you made me think about it I don't think I've ever met a female dev in person. Not any that I knew about.

    Then again I think I could count the people I know just use a computer regularly on two hands and only maybe three of the male variety can actually code anything.

    That being said, that whole emo thing hollywood seems to think everyone of y'all has going on... It is pretty hot.

    @irene you know if you ever found your way onto a plane over here, think i’d know just the hole in the wall to send you too. Edm/metal kinda scene. the acoustics can get kinda shitty at times for the bands, but the dj’s are usually good and it’s usually got a decent crowd. One of my “ex’s” practically lived in there

    @M1sf3t nice ๐Ÿค”
    However I'm not a party type. I get very tired because of crowds.

    @irene i feel you, think the older I get the more and more i find myself chilling in the lounge area or at the bar of the places i visit.

    Chey was bad about showing back up with strays when I didn’t tag along. Not necessarily a problem except that mine and her taste in women weren’t even remotely the same.

    Not that she didn’t still pick them up with me being out, it just gave me the option to find out where the girl lived on the way home and drop them off there if necessary ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

    I'm going to find you if you don't build this
  • 2
    I am gonna build open source front-end for this to get more chicks.
  • 2
    @hack I'll find you as well
  • 0
    @M1sf3t yeah, lounge area is a nice place.

    Who's Chey?

    alright. I've decided I'm actually going to try this. who wants to suggest names and design ideas?

    @irene the ex. Though if I remember right, the relationship only got its title because it was easier explain than how we were "just friends" when there was only one bed in the house. She never came out and said it, but pretty sure she swung a little harder the other way.

    @C0D4 Nice thought

    Should be called Termanal, because only guys will be on there. Might work as a dating site for homosexuals though.
  • 0
    @ftechhelp why only guys?
  • 1
    @Codex404 well, like @M1sf3t mentioned, dev females are out there for sure, but males still outnumber by a huge factor (unfortunately). The competition would be way too fierce to even be realistic.
  • 1
    @ftechhelp ive got about ten female dev colleagues. At the last GGJ I attended there were more females than males. I see the oposite from you. Its about 40/60
  • 0
    @Codex404 huh okay. Well I stand corrected. It’s just hard to tell if that is the norm or not.
  • 0
    @ftechhelp probably not, it's just that I know so many female devs that Im surprised when people say they dont see any female devs.
  • 0
    @Codex404 So Termanal could still be a thing!
  • 2
    @Codex404 dunno about your place but in a company I work for there's a clear majority of men on dev jobs. And a total overload of females on hr, recruiter or other non dev jobs.
  • 1
    @irene with me: sales is 2 people male and female., HR is male, office manager female, general manager male, PR male.

    But now I think about it even though only 40 people work at my place weve got someone from syria, 2x russia, 3x Italy, 2x england so our team is more mixed overall then most other companies.

    @Codex404 your company might be an exception ๐Ÿค”
  • 0
    @Codex404 have they all got facial piercings and pink or blue hair? ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผ‍๐ŸŽค๐Ÿ˜
  • 0
    @M1sf3t no, only one russian girl had that, but she is working somewhere else now.
  • 0
    @irene thats what I said in my last sentence :)
  • 2
    @Codex404 so wait, the company you work for has got a more evenly based ratio than most other companies yet the only one with neon hair isn't even there anymore? Hollywood has some explaining to do ๐Ÿค”

    @M1sf3t indeed and what is accurate with hollywood is that 50% of those dev females is attracted to women.
