Today I read a great article on mutation tests, how to use and why they are important. It looks like a great thing, but...
I have never wrote any unit test in any of my jobs. Nobody in my workplace does that. And now it seems like 100% test coverage is not enough (I remind you, that I have 0%), they all should mutate to check if the quality of unit tests is high.
It seems that I'm left behind. I played with tests in my free time, but it seems the more you write them, the better you get at it, so I should be writing them in my job, where I code most of my time. Not only that, of course, I would also want to ensure that what I'm working on is bug-free.
Still, it will be impossible to introduce unit tests to my project, because they are novelty to the whole team and our deadlines are tight. The other thing is, we are supposed to write minimum viable product, as it is a demo for a client, and every line of code matters. Some might say that we are delusional that after we finish demo we will make things the right way.
Did any one of you have a situation like this? How did you change your boss and team's mind?4
yey! got 30 ++ on my last rant!
.. maybe this time i’ll not be as lazy as fuck to not ask for the free stickers 😬4
So as i was exporting the apk file from unity, unity crashed and it caused a BSOD
I had a fucking heart attack because i coding from 16 hours straight
But my shit is still there
I finally understand why do many people use a MacBook pro for work5
What is longest commute distance you would do? Got now new work but it's about 100km away and thinking should I move closer to workplace or just commute from current apartment.8
So I need some advice. Friend of mine did a logo for their relative's local restaurant and now their wanting a basic info page.
I figure on the frontend I'll go with bootstrap for now (zero patience for a cms build) and have them give me a general idea of what their wanting to spend. But as usual I'm lost when it comes to hosting.
Worse lately I've been so concerned with wrapping my head around the microservice setups, I haven't kept with how any of the current "simple" static hosting packages stack up to one another.
Just a quick glance I've found a couple freemium "serverless" models but the pricing on them seem like they're more for low traffic developer showcasing rather than a business with a quite a few patrons pulling up the togo menu every day (still waiting to find out what the expected will be, "local" is east coast several states away). Of course again I don't know that for sure, clueless remember.
I figure if all goes well we can talk about starting to add in some functionality later that requires a backend, making migration to a more extensive service and providing long term support a more worthwhile venture, but for now I'm just cutting them a deal that will hardly worth it's time just to get the ball rolling. Not just on this but as a freelance endeavor in general.
That said, while it will be a nice & easy starter project and possible portfolio piece later, it's not something I want to be married too long term if this is all they ever ask for.
In any case advice is much appreciated.5
Today i cut and pasted routes to the wrong express app in order to clean the main file. Now there are no more routes in my other project. Boss is very happy1
Almost 2 months out of uni and no luck finding a non webdev related job.
Time to sell out and learn js.2
Holy fucking shit... this didnt happen! IT FUCKING CAMT HAVE! NO NO NO NO! IMPOSSIBLE!
I LOST MY FUCKING BAG! RIGHT BEFORE ONE OF MY MOST IMPORTANT FUCKING TESTS! Ok, a little backstory, everyone in Switzerland or (due to alice's request) german can skip this part:
Here we have something called a "Lehre" (I think its called an apprenticeship or sth?) which usually goes 3-4 years, and in the middle, (end of 2nd) we have a "Teilprüfung" Which is basically a test which you HAVE to pass, if you dont, wait another year, and do it with the Final exams... and if you dont pass, your fucked. very very deep in the ass. And guess where I am? Yes. end of 2nd year. And guess what happened?
I LOST ALL OF MY STUFF! GONE. LOST. IM SO FUCKING SCREWED RIGHT NOW! (I have a small backup tho) BUT THIS IS JUST BAD! VERY FUCKING BAD!
WHY THE FUCK ISNT THIS A DREAM!
I cant sleep...
I need to pick one terminology for shipping so I don’t forget my function names, css classes and labels.
I’ve used a mix of “Shipping”, “postage” and “delivery” and now I’m confused :-/2
I can't make a code of a fucking damn thing....
Or maybe I shouldn't do matlab
Or maybe it's just me that suck
Or that I'm a piece of shit all along who is nothing but a piece of disappointment.... Disappointment as a service or disappointment as a shit
I'm a fucking DaaS
I want to die4
I just discovered that Go needs a very long time to compile a 120MB source code file. Beside the fact that the file was very big, it just contained a big amount of byte arrays.
Did anyone had ever such big source code files?5
When you rebuild the whole product and instead of using state-of-the-art technologies, almost everything is written by ourselves or old technologies.
JSF instead of REST + vue.js or similar
Self written DB-access instead of Spring/Hibernate
No Jenkins etc, instead write scripts to build it....
It's time for a job change I think
Finally got to flash stuff onto my phone again.
Damn, Magisk is nice.
AOSP is so smooth too.
And I replaced GSF with microG. :^)2
Switching back and forth from Angular to C# is a big headache. Anyone else with this issue with other languages? (junior dev here)2
Okay so I’ve decided to learn React with TypeScript. I’m a backend dev and doing .net core. I know with React people use JSX. But it looks like typescript is becoming the norm. Also hear redux is outdated and the hot new thing is hooks. Lol. Don’t know man. Is this a good place to start? I’m gonna learn a little but of typescript, the. Jump to React. Not gonna do JSX.2
Guys, what the fuck.
Today i was doing some consistancy checks accross the board after update made for one of our core systems that manages money. Yeah, real, live money.
I have hidden from public payment processor with simple API etc. So one of my checks, gate has same balances as gate's internal account on core blinked red. Okay well, fuck, thats really really shitty situation to be in. I guess my gate is fucked up some way.
Okay, debug mode on, maintainence mode on, quick look at DB, oh shit, client payed 4 times 15k eur without any txn on core system... SHIT! postman... Fuck, postman ofc wont start, quick google, fixing postman, tention in me grows, becouse its really rough and tough fuckup on my side, and got call. That moment when you know someone already knows is for me apogeum of stress that just skyrocketed from calm morning to mad morning.. Okay, i pick up phone, and I hear that one client payed (using core system app) and got strange message, YES I KNOW, im working on it.. Wait, you say that core system gave them odd message??? I will check it out. Finally fixed postman, 3 requests and I know its bug on core system.
Why, why in the motherfucking blody world anyone would push critically bugged update to system that just sends api callbacks "yes, he payed" when someone didnt pay...
Fuck im stressed and pissed, but at same time reliefed its not my personal fuckup (yeah, I solo wrote that gate, but externally audited code and all they had to say that some cosmetic linting should be done)2
