"I can't replicate it therefore your hotfix for the customer shouting at you is unnecessary"
WTF?! I had to lead this guy to the records where I'd replicated it myself in both the customer system and the demo one! There's a real sense that the core dev team in this place automatically disregards what the rest of us say (support had already mentioned it was replicable but clearly hadn't realised that they needed to spoon-feed this guy).
This place has a huge silo problem, glad I'm not staying much longer...
edit: these tags shouldn't be reordering themselves, not cool14
What if I told you : you can use whatever the fuck OS you want, whatever the fuck stack you want ?
And IF you take a job in a certain stack, don't like it ? Quit your job !
Stop beeing whining bitches. Don't like current job ? Find a new one.
You think your app is revolutionary ? TRY and push it (And fail)
You think that at 16 you know better than people who are 30+yo ? prove it by actions.
It's easy. You have full control of what you can do.
Stop bitching, start coding.
windows, linux, mac, MS-DOS. Noone cares what you use. As long as you do the job.16
Hey support, if you just copy and paste entire paragraphs from me of informal language which I've written with you as the intended recipient to help you understand what's happening, and send that to the customer, tell the customer you're waiting on me, tell my boss you're waiting on me, when the messaging clearly demonstrates that I'm waiting for you to liaise with the customer and get specific information, then really you're just making our company look incompetent and me look lazy, when those things apply to you.
Dumb question time!
I'm writing a bash script that outputs some progress info to stdout (stuff like "Doing this... ok", "Doing that... ok") before outputing a list of names (to stdout too).
I'd like to be able to pipe this list of names to a second script for processing, by doing a simple :
~$ script1 | script2
Unfortunately, as you may have guessed, the progress info is piped as well, and is not displayed on the screen.
Is it considered a bad practice to redirect that progress info to stderr so it is not sent into the pipe ?
Is there any "design pattern" for this kind of usecase, where you want to be able to choose what to display and what to pipe to a program that accepts input from stdin ?13
I managed to re-negotiate my offer to reach the (accidentally) advertised range exceeding my original (realistic) expectations and this is in huge part thanks to the helpful bunch of you here.
So: Thank you!!
And I can't belive that in a single fucking day I benefitted more from posting to devrant than all the time spent on toxic subreddits, calling useless recruiters, forums and others. Here, even those comments that I disagreed with were phrased in a reasonable manner and they also helped me formulate an apparently very strong argument in the compensation meeting.7
at my current job at a "big company" our development process sucks, something is on fire at all times, there are hundreds of dependency issues, it's so bad that I'm struggling to find motivation.
Yet they pay me well.. Yaay for big companies that refuse to change when provided with feedback on how to improve things.2
What are some things you do(apart from the popularly discussed, todos, writing etc.) to make complex requirements simple(not easy, simple)?7
I'm sorry did I say something they found offensive, like the truth about their town ? or just sort of suggest it lol11
Me working on html/css updates for a banner message.
Web Ops Director: [slack] Hi! nice to e-meet you! I was talking with the Mgr of Product. He thinks it would be great if the banner message updates were on the site right away instead of having to wait 10 minutes for the cache to clear after updating the banner content in admin. Can you add that to your ticket?
Lol that’s a load of crap. 1) Product would have just told me himself and 2) Product would never pull this bullshit of bringing a ticket out of scope like you’re pulling right now. And 3) My spidey sense says this is a red flag 🚩.
Me: [in words web ops will understand] That’s going to a lot of time. And it would keep your content updates from making it to the weekly release. 😁2
How I hate the moments when you realize you have wasted time during the day and want to do everything in the evening.2
If you're willing to pay $19 for a cloth to clean your device, are you also willing to just give me $10 for the hell of it? I'll even email you back a picture of the apple logo if it sweetens the deal.1
New guy likes to both approve and merge other people's pull requests have he approves them. Please don't merge other people's pull/merge requests. Other team members may have comments too! The person who created it should merge it.1
Docker has taken out 2 of our (6) on prem servers.
It's forked 65k processes to run a health check on 4 stacks...

I know it’s old hat but…Edge…I mean really how is it still so bad? How do you base your browser of the chromium engine, have, gosh idk, a billion dollar dev budget, and still, still, it’s significantly worse than chrome in every ui/ux way.3
Transfer speeds should be so fast that assets should be taken from the cloud on the fly as needed instead of having a fucking huge game download 300MB to 1GB after each event or level onto the phone. That way assets on the phone aren't required but could be optionally used that way.6
How hard can it be to refactor this 170 lines file?
- a single “data” variable used to store everything
- arrays inside arrays inside arrays (see prev point)
- operations with a lot of obscure sideEffects
- $data = something (which in magic php land means $data.enqueue()
Why is such… biological matter… even allowed to code? Fucker’s pretending they are a senior for four years: how in hell didn’t they learn to code in this timeframe?7
