FUCK FUCK FUCK

More chinese APIs to integrate :(
More shitty code samples
More incomplete, disorganized specs
More Chenglish
More idiotic, redundant and pointless "security measures"
More retarded API names
More cryptic parameters

Best advice I can give anyone: when you see a chinese API RUN LIKE HELL. Get sick. Get pregnant. Go on vacation. Have someone tell them you died.

FUCK

    A: "Here, B - take a look at this Chinese API and see how long will it take to integrate it into our service"
    B: "Oh I don't think I''ll be able to - I'm pregnant"
    A: "But your male..."
    B: "Yeah, the doctors are baffled. Say, give the assignment to the intern."
    *LOUD GUNSHOT IN THE CORRIDOR*
    A: "What was that?!"
    B: "that must've been the intern - must've felt the disturbance in the force"

    When I was a kid "made in China" (generally dishes) meant quality and was revered. Now it seems to be a mark of cheap quality and short cuts. I have to imagine this hurts any idea of national pride to the people that live in that region.

    @Demolishun funny thing about that saying, there's a Chinese rap song(can't remember the name) where they sing made in China super proud many times, a bit funny when the western connotation is well like you say

    @molaram Worse ? I didn't know it was even possible

    Not understanding the engineering principles behind the tech being employed in China is pervasive.

    When pouring concrete you have to finish the pour. You cannot stop halfway and pick it up the next day. If you stop part way it will create a weakness in the structure. I know a guy that saw a pour get stopped halfway in China because it was the end of the day. They intended to finish the next day. This is a basic rule of construction. God help them in an earthquake.

    I have seen this in some simple places. Like audio connectors that are solderable. They didn't use a high temperature plastic to insulate the different parts. So soldering them causes the connector to come apart.

    This lack of understanding how things work is going to bite them at some point. I am sure it has is some places. It is sad to see this.

    What i find strange is that I am right now at my 9th integration of similar services (financial-related) and I see the same fucking shit in every single API from so many different companies.
    It's like someone wrote some shit code some 10 years that just "worked", with complete disregard to any common sense, industry practices, security, not to mention the slightest resemblance of a positive developer experience.
    I see the same patterns and problems in so many places. Are all those fuckers just sharing the same code? Like, different "competing" companies run exactly the same shit under the hood. What the fuck are those idiots up to?
