NoMad364439dDepression as a measure of achievement 🤔🤔🤔 huh.
Tho, disillusionment is certainly a measure.
I have seen JS devs who learnt react and then switched to vue and now planning to switch over svelte because it's new cool thing is JS market.
Nowadays it's all about deno.js. Tomorrow it will be someFancyNewFramework.js
Most annoying thing is JS fan boys switch framework and then write a blog about, Why you should learn xyz.js instead of abc.js or You should switch to x from y. But the blog is full of shit, poor reasoning but fan boy only learned about how to make ToDo list and still praising framework like it is the saviour of the front end world.
hardfault156039dSoftware in general is a piece of shit,
Problem is we work on a layer behind interpreter, compiler , asm, digital logic, gates
It became piece of shit because human beings are mostly dumb and dumbness is addictive, it gets added for all layers.
So by the time your are writing that awesome code it mostly does not matter because all other layers are fucked.
More you know you realize that you can’t possibly do anything about it because even if you develop everything from scratch it won’t be popularly used / deployed.
Right hand > code
alcatraz627835539dMy brother is a firearms fanboy and while explaining to him the state of software development, I gave the example of what would happen if 3d printers which could print proper metallic firearms were mainstream and costed next to nothing. The kind of inferior quality firearms people would start producing, to the point where a patchwork Frankenstein gun was the average standard. That, is the state of software development in an age where it takes minimal effort to enter the field and with the disproportionate number of newbies, anything can be hyped up.
(Disregarding the controversies involving firearms being publicly available, just talking about the hobbyist aspect of it)
pussy > code
Yep I realized the same a few months back.
That's why I got this one:
@NoMad you are right in that sense. Depression would be a bad level of measurement, certainly a sad one to even consider.
I am just so tired of being a web dev man ;_____; if my skills and knowledge level were up to it I would have jumped ship to embedded development from the get go ;___; but I have far more knowledge and experience on web development. I know enough about analytics and data science to move there, but I don't like fucking with that unless it is for my very own fun little stupid projects.
@alcatraz627 that and years of letting anyone get in from certain fields.
I for example, love PHP, I can use it well enough to not get bitten in the ass by dumb shit the language allows one to do. But dear me man I can see why people hate it based on the amount of shit code that has been provided by legions of people that jumped ship into it. VBScript and Classic ASP was the same albeit Microsoft was smart enough to generate something that will standardize procedures from an earlier stage. But because there is close to a 0 barrier of entry into web development we have all this shit, your example is pretty good, i am gonna start using it :P I'll send you the royalties.
