So I just enjoy the intellectual social and sexual company of adults and noone else, without horrific drama attached and strange fetish, is there noone else like this ?13
git merge "conflicts"
(not really an issue, but still a waste of time and concentration, when every now and then, using more than one branch, small edits, merge, and rebase, git diff complains about "conflicts" that are obvious to solve for a human but still not for a machine, despite the hype about the age of AI, coding co-pilots and the like...)3
My previous company is awesome but couldn’t survive under pandemic.
That’s why I was looking for another job.🙂1
the problem with product based company is the business/sales people, when they are not clear about their own product, the amount of re-work comes to n^n!
New Marketing Person: [via slack] Hey! I left a comment on the JIRA ticket. I didn’t know how to tag you so I’m messaging you here to make sure you see it.
Me: [slack] Ok, thanks for letting me know. It works the same way it does in slack. Type “@“ followed by a name.
Me: [inner monologue] 🙄 You could have also just Googled it instead of expending energy and time on this slack exchange.
Same person leaves another JIRA comment later… and doesn’t tag me…Why do I even bother to be helpful…
Love having ssh access to lab computers. Running a grid search with 15 folds for 468 candidates. Let's see how long this takes...1
Out of nowhere, someone called me from a jobs board and said that they really liked my profile and that they sent me a job invite and they were in a hurry to get someone new - with my profile exactly. I haven't logged into that jobs board for a couple months, but upon checking, I see that their company sent me an invite and that the working environment was great. Remote first, no daily standups, competitive pay, and the site was legit. So okay, I accept their invite.
The next day I got an email back saying unfortunately they would close the application because they were only hiring people with a couple years experience in some tech... which was listed in my profile in the jobs board.
I'm like lolwut you invited me, don't you turn that around like I'm begging you for a job.5
I wasn’t even looking for a job, I just went out for drinks with friends and I met this random dude. I complained to him about work wanting us to go back to the office, to which he replied that I should go work for them because they’re remote and looking for people. I had a look at their openings and they had a role with fewer responsibilities and a lot more money, so I applied. It’s been 3 months and I’m so glad I switched.5
i need a new perspective to life, from the technical perspective (well , from all the perspectives, but from technologies the most)
I can't seem to stand out, nor can I understand what to do to stand out. i am stuck in the loop of "understanding" the basics.its one year since i have been graduated . i worked as a professional dev in a company all this time and i am sending my resignation tomorrow.
company work was great, but got boring pretty fast when i cracked it. the architecture was already there, my tasks were usually to create xmls/kotlin files , write some code to get data from server and display it in pretty boxes. all was okay, most of the times , our shit works, sometimes its some stupid mobile devices with their custom os .
BUT THAT'S TOO LITTLE . the company's (ed tech startup) whole product was this . yesterday , i witnessed another app(hotstar) in which 12 million people were watching a legendary cricket match at the same time. 12 FREAKING BILLION!! THAT'S SOME SCALE DAMN!
i am currently having an offer from another company where i am expecting things would be different. its a logistics company, i am expecting their scale to be also something. However I don't want to be dependent on some "company code" to teach me build massive tech, i wanna be the fire of my own.
Please share some stories, inspiration, tips and most importantly RESOURCES on where i can get the knowledge to build scalable "people" products : the one used by people, impacting them.
I am stuck in the loops of tutorials and documentations:
- someday i would open the documentation of Coroutines or a tutorial on android datastore even though i know threads and shared prefs and i could make them work correctly too, but all the internet is flooded with how Coroutines are so good.
- someday i would buy a course on spring even though i understand js and node decently.
- someday i would start reading react and html/css since web development is the thing of scale and i am just an android dev
- someday i would start watching system design videos.
- ... and this goes on.
i can't decide which thing i should be learning about , the internet is filled with so many voices : "learn this, learn that, learn how to fuck yourself"
in this way i guess i will never reach the knowledge level of a person designing billion people streaming system or 10 layer security system or high traffic e-commerce
Not dev. Just another shitpost.
I think my boss (one of them since I post about two) knows I shitpost here. He asked to hang out a few times but I kinda just forgot about it since it's not possible right now anyway. But the flirting is becoming more obvious and if he's reading, he knows I find him sexy.
Well, watchu gonna do, boyo? Expose me? Call me out? I will forever deny it even if the events match up perfectly. I'd be like "Whaaat? Who's that guy? He posted WHAAAAT? Disgusting. I would NEVER." I might say those exact words, actually.
I have a feeling this might just be your personality though. You're young, handsome, and stressed. Maybe some friendly flirting with willing participants relieves some stress for you but the devil inside me is curious about how far you can go. I want to see it in person though. It's more fun that way and you can feel the tension, god I love that tension. Feels like I feed into that kind of energy.
We can flirt until one of us dies. When this whole shit is over and we finally meet, I just want to see the look on your face when I say some dirty fucked up shit to you when you dare start me up with this kind of thing. I'm confident that you would. It's a dangerous game, I know, but you don't seem to care and I definitely don't either. I know my limits. What kind of rules are you willing to break or how close to that, at least?
You could have let me go when I filed my resignation. Surely, you can find someone just as good or even waaay better that you would never think of flirting with. But nooo, that's not fun, isn't it? You jackass.58
It makes sense to learn AI and its mathematical basis (statistics and linear algebra) or unless I want to get a degree on the topic I’m wasting my time? If the answer is yes what are the best online resources/books which I can use?
To clarify I don’t want to specialize there and work as a “AI/data science specialist” (for which I believe a degree it’s necessary) as some graduates in shady boot camps expects to do. I’m just asking myself if I can teach myself enough IA to enrich personal projects in which IA makes sense and to become apre flexible professional.4
whelp. fuck you grub2
fuck you for presneting yourself as a problem to be solved all over again.
fuck you for the efi partition containing a search for the fucking boot/efi partition by uuid
fuck my host system for taking a cloned drive and fucking around because it couldn't tell which drive the uuid was emanating from
fuck them using entries files with linux options specifying the uuid of the root partition which ALSO now must have a subvol parameter supplied to a rootoptions parameter to find the fucking root drive
fuck them for making it look like the fucking software is smarter than it seems.
and fuck them for not creating some kind of autoprobe fucking utility added to teh initial boot drive which is smart enough to load a stub of grub2 and then pull in teh rest of the slice partitions it shouldn't be using in the first place
and fuck you fedora for using btrfs in the first place and mounting a different partition for linux images and yet another under /boot/efi
and fuck you virtualbox for not producing teh shit the kernel finds IMMEDIATELY once in rescue mode !!!8
Up to now, whenever I buy a phone, I get a screen 5D protector to protect against drops and scratches.
Is it still good to get one now or is Corning Gorilla Glass now good enough?32
Corporate IT: Here at Company A we are very proactive about CyberSecurity!
Dev: What is our cybersecurity plan?
Corporate IT: If any breaches happen we will terminate those involved and discontinue use of the offending product
Dev: That sounds reactive to me
Corporate IT: 😡 It’s proactive actually as we put together that plan of action BEFORE anything happened!
It's great. I'm constantly talking to customers at the moment, because I quit my job and became a student and a freelancer. I love to see them gulp when I finally name my price and some give me work. And I make in twenty hours what I made in a month before.
That's because I'm expensive now but have been dreadfully underpaid before
