You know what I hate? Websites that run so much scripted internet-connected shit in the background that you'll either get a fat error message or even a "failed to load site" screen from the browser if you lose the connection for a few seconds.
What's the motherfucking point of a website when its requirements make it effectively a livestreaming service, despite the content being less dynamic than Zuckerberg's face in US congress?
I don't give a shit whether I have internet when I'm fucking reading, you asshats. And you don't need to remind me when my internet connection is disrupted, I think I'll notice that by myself the next time I click on something and your garbage site will take more than the usual 5 seconds to fucking load the background color.8
I was once called in by HR because i ended an email with an exclamation mark. I kid you not. She said i was being stand-offish and it was rude.
It has been almost 4 years since i left that company but i am still quite traumatized.3
- Got yelled by narcissistic father
- Anxiety went through the roof
- Caused no interest to start working
- I am paid hourly
Have you ever argue with a developer who:
+ have the same level as you
+ on the same position in the company
+ in the same team
+ OLDER than you
+ thinks their code is the best
A few years back, a coworker and I argue about how to implement a feature. I proposed an approach. He proposed a different one. I immediately saw some problems and told him. But hell no, he defended his idea so strongly that I just gave up since I will leave the company soon.
2 weeks later, when the sprint was about to end, the whole team had to work overtime to fix the mess because of his terrible approach.2
What's the scariest shit on netflix or binge? Like hauntings/paranormal type stuff? I've run out of things to watch again.18
Junior dev here. Finishing a boot camp, actively going through a few job application processes.
One of the companies has given me a tech assignment (for a Graduate Junior position, mind you) that was titled Full Stack Mid Level Challenge. It took me a week to build an app they asked and do analitycs and refactoring of the second part of the task (I only had late evenings free to dedicate to that), it was my first time doing back-end in Node (my boot camp teaches PHP) so I basically learned to do it while doing this challenge.
They asked testing and clean architecture.
I submitted the assignment (I thought I would die while doing it, exhausted, I think I was brain dead for a short perio of time, but I submitted it on time).
They got back to me and we had already have a tech interview with the Leads that had live coding at the end. Don't have feedback yet, really won't be surprised for whatever comes, it was literarly my first interview, treating it like a valuable learning experience.
But. This rant is not about this. Thsi is just to put you in my mood.
This is the !rant:
My classmate from the bootcamp is probably already hired, or will be one of these days. As a tech challenge she was asked to do FizzBuzz kata. I repeat, FizzBuzz bloody kata!
Now, I am very happy for this person, the situation is complicated and this job is extremely needed.
But, please, explain to me, HOW??? How is it possible that selection criterias vary that much?
End of rant. Thank you very much.2
Having a non functioning family is great, you'll never know what will happen. Conflict, screaming, maybe suicide. Pretty poggers7
Today I learnt something, I wish I learnt this earlier (I'm 25 now , it is late?).
What I learnt:
1. Never out -shined your superior, as it naturally stir up all sorts of resentments , envy, insecurities and possibilities of getting you replace by someone level intelligent. Because superior feel threatened.
2. Never try to fake what you don't know, and real to what you know. (As I saw someone faking themselves as someone who they are not, they eventually manifested tonnes of shit to themselves.)
So is what I learnt is actually make sense and valid? or just an opinion?2
New phone after 5+ years and it's fucking awesome.
Successfully avoid American and Chinese stuff by going with a Korean brand.
And I fucking love Android. The kind of feature advancement that has happened in past so many years is outstanding.
The amount of customisation options available for the users are beyond one can utilise to fullest.
And my favourite feature is dynamic lock screen pictures every-single-time I unlock. I fucking love it. Makes me cheer up with joy. Very similar to Bing Wallpapers for Windows, but more dynamic.
Lately, I have been hearing from Apple users, that iPhone lacking a ton of basic features, apps not supporting functionalities, and we all know the overall advancement in Apple ecosystem.
While this post was more about sharing my experience with my new phonw than iPhone comparison but let's face it, the reason Apple went bonkers with the first iPhone launch was the app capabilities which led to a larger developer community building apps for iPhone while Android wasn't even born yet.
This is where Google is trying to capture the market now. More devs > more apps > more users > more devs and repeat.8
I went outside to throw something into the garbage bin. I threw my bag in there and caught movement with the side of my eye in the bin. Something in the bin was moving! It freaked me out until I realized it was a squirrel.
Well I hope I scared the shit outta him too!1
If you had the chance to recruit your own team member, what are the quality that you're looking for (outside devs/programming skills).6
searching 'linux operating system' on Google shows Linux's Wikipedia page as 'operating systems are Linux'2
What is the best, sustainable and durable laptop for coding. I am planning on saving for a MacBook but I am a bit confused. I cide android apps and I want a beast that can run 100+ emulators at once, open 3K tabs on chrome and a build time that doesn't exceed 10 mins😉 any ideas guys?22
Fucking stop all that coding courses. Just stop. You already have enough skill.
So as usual by this point im looking trough some android device tree files. power_profile.xml HMMMMMMM.
I look inside and what dont i find. Battery capacity.
And i wondered for ages why the fuck the app i use for checking hardware capability (Dev Check. Really amazing app for Android ROM developer) reports like 600mAh lower then its supposed to be. I always thought its via the battery. Like we are in 2021. We really didnt yet figure out how big the freaking battery is automatically?
Yes it wont really cause any issues except battery remaining time will be inaccurate but still WTF.
Has anyone ever thought about making a command under linux and modifying the extfs and operating structure of the kernel to FORCE a programs invocation to ALWAYS be run by a specific user account so you can sandbox the command but allow its invocation by any user ?2
