I thought the Tech Lead was cool but today he went on a rampage about how women shouldn’t be allowed to have jobs in tech. It’s disappointing to say the least :/

I’m not sure I believe he worked at Google or Meta as he said he was fired from Meta in 2019 for having a YouTube channel then today said he was fired for hating women (how was he fired twice).

    i mean, who can prove he ever worked there?

    @Burgundxyz No one, I have a hard time believing he wasn’t screened out being this arrogant. Companies make bad hires all the time and people slip through but I’d be surprised slipping through not only Google but also Facebook. And his behavior going unnoticed, let alone telling a potential new hire to have a baby and ripping up their resume in front of them.

    I think he is trying to tell a joke or be ironic, but I don't get it

    @Crost same. I don't believe anyone would say "go have kids" unironically. Feels like he's doing a bit.

    I'm not that familiar with him, but the guy is youtuber not programmer (he might been or might not been one in the past), he's making all of those blown out statements as a form of click bait, whether they are true or not doesn't really matter, what matter to him is to infuriate you so you engage with him, weather by watching his content, commenting, anything that really feeds the algorithm™, and helps him making money.

    The worst thing you can do to him is to simply ignore him.

    I remember seeing this on twitter, and like what?

    >brutal 24/7 job

    that's not a job that's boot licking

    Also, software development is one of the greatest jobs for parents?

    You can literally stay home with your child. When you work is also not important. Friend of mine just decided to do a bunch of his work at like 10 pm cause he didnt feel like working tomorrow... Not many other jobs have this flexibility.

    And who cares if a dev leaves for a year?

    Youre not "outdated" after that??

    Is it just me, or does it seem like this guy likes erotic hypno and his favorite trigger phrase is "np hard"?

    @WesleySaunders That makes sense. What was that rule about getting answers to your questions on the internet?

    "Say something wrong, so that people will reply to correct you."

    Something like that. He is using that to make money.

    I mean this is obviously a joke. But there are many good reasons to dislike Techlead

    Wtf he said he was fired from Facebook just this week?? I thought he was fired a few years ago! Somethings going on with this guy, did he even work at the places he brags about?

    Well, you sortof gave him a point in deductive logic though.

    - He could have been fired for hating women on his YouTube channel.

    - He could actually have been fired twice by becomming reemployed at the same company a second time (different HR people maybe).

    - He could also have been fired twice by getting employed by another company which then got aquired by the MetaFacebook.

    That said, he might be right statistically. But i am pro same opportunity and that the work environment of coders most often is pretty toxic is something that has to change - regardless of whether the coder is a women or a cat. More mice for everyone.

    "At Google, Shyu was the Tech Lead of App Architecture & Core Features for the YouTube iOS app."

    Not surprised the app goes to the toilet if this is who is in the lead (never used iOS version though)

    Having someone on staff that behaves this way could land Google (or any employer) in a lawsuit. Him saying he did this may open up past employer to a lawsuit. This may cause past employer to seek damages from the cause. Especially when someone brags about this.

    This could also hurt the reputation of employers he names even if he was never employed there.

    as far as i know, everything he says is a joke. for a time i thought an unintentional ones, but then someone told me it's all intentional ones.

    @LotsOfCaffeine my best friend who studied IT had a child year ago.

    she was telling me how she has issues properly focusing even on dumb tv shows, because there's a constant high-priority thread of "make sure child is ok and has everything it needs" running, making it impossible to fully focus on anything.

    i can't imagine her being able to focus on programming when she can't even focus on dumb tv shows, and i bet she would agree with what i just wrote here.

    Omfg he did not 😂 his story keeps getting better and better 😭

    @Midnight-shcode So many mothers mention this, but it remains yet another factor in a person's total mental capacity and it remains impossible to make general statements about that capacity purely based on the few factors we know. A lot of the mothers who complain about this are still productive expert workers with an impressive output, it's just that that output is 15-20% less at best than it was before they had kids.

    Feels forced. Anyhow, tech lead is a fucking fraud. Brags about obfuscating code to make himself hard to fire, does crypto scams and steals from more successful engineers than him.

    Didn’t really like the guy from the start so 😂

    @lbfalvy well, i literally know her mensa-approved IQ score, amongst other things, so i have a pretty good idea about her overall mental capacity, but i get your point =D

    Most of his stuff is trolling and being sarcastic.

    But the dude fall into the rabbit hole when he started to promote pump and dump cryptos 24/4 to scam his viewers. After that i just unfollowed that idiot.

    Not trying to justify his crimes by any means, what he did was really disgusting to the point where he should be banished from society. But the current scene of IT companies is so fucked. I have a friend, who got to work in Microsoft because of their stupid women in tech program. These managers dude, they don’t care shit about how they perform, all the want is to hire woman to finish their job. She was good but not the one to survive at big tech. Funny thing managers can’t fire such people as well.

    this guy is a scam. he made get rich quick and crypto scams too.

    Don’t really know who this guy is but I can confirm that having 2 children has had an impact on my mental capacity. Lack of sleep, having someone more important than yourself and something else being a priority over work all play a part. However, this would be exactly the same for any decent father. My career took a bit of a back seat when they were babies but they do get older. I’ve still managed to be a half decent developer in the mean time.

    My guess is that he probably just has an over inflated ego and if he was really a good dev he’d be doing that instead of selling his soul on social media. Also, probably been turned down by a lot of women.

    @UnicornPoo I read a little about him from a random website, apparently his wife left with their child to another country without warning. Not sure if he believed what he data, but either way he sure knows how to game social media. It's a disgrace that people apparently follow this.

    @electrineer Because people keeps falling for what is obvious a character, he is even talking to 3rd person with a such obvious sarcasticly voice, with mix of of experiances from him as person once in a while.

    I belive there is some truth from his side in some of the things he says once in a while, but its written deliberate to be extreme/overreacted.

    He is clearly a idiot from the crypto scams he has done the pas 6-12 months.

    But i find it a bit ironic people in this thread calling him dumb, are the ones who got baited by such obviours bait.

    I have a theory that Tech Lead has brain cancer or a brain tumor and is slowly losing it. Making up imaginary realities, egged on by the imagined realities of jerks he follows
