She - So. Do you read ?

Me - Yes. Infact a lot. Daily. My life is filled with it.

She - Wow. Nice. So what do you read mostly ? Which one is your favourite

Me - Mostly Documentations. Vuejs documentation is my favourite followed by express and mongodb documentation. And yeah webpack. You should read them too. Then there is a book on ES6, 'Understanding ES6' by Nikolas S Zakas, famous author and programmer. Great stuff

    @GodHatesMe if you mean MDN, then you are equally attractive. Just stop seeing W3.org. She is not giving you anything worthy

    reading for work is not reading. Everybody reads for work. Marketing people read numbers and ad texts for work. Accountants and finance read spreadsheets and financial statements and business plans.

    The question is about literature, to determine on what subjects other than politics is it appropriate to talk about, to know the impressions and opinions. An alternative is to talk about movies, but they are mostly superficial and it's always the same thing: some shit happens, people fight for it, someone dies while someone hooks up, bad people get what they deserve (or problem is solved otherwise) and then the protagonists kiss and they live happily ever after.

    @AndSoWeCode reading for work would include, ready team mates code, comments, analysis of your code, error reports...Not documentations or tech books

    @jalebiBhai everybody has documentation and tech books.

    Lawyers have weekly reviews of new or modified laws, court cases, etc.
    Accountants have constant changes to the financial policy of the government.
    Finance also has to constantly improve.
    Psychologists, or in fact any scientists, have science journals and science media to read and be in touch with all recent advancements.

    But all of that, is reading for work, if your work is related to that.

    Work is fine, work is interesting (hopefully), but only for your and other people with a similar job. That's WHY WE HAVE THIS COMMUNITY. Because telling my wife why Rust couldn't possibly replace Python (even though I love Rust) is just like a designer explaining to me why material design is crap. I don't get it, it's not funny, I don't care, fuck off, leave me be.

    That's why people are looking for non-work-related topics to talk about.

    @AndSoWeCode what if I am reading about that I don't work on. Say, reactjs
  • 1
    @jalebiBhai it means you love your job and are looking to expand. It's like a US-based lawyer reading German marriage laws. Still job-related. It's fine, you love what you do, that's great. But because it's far more than a hobby, it's not interesting to other people.

    How can I explain it better:

    Hobby:
    I had just made my own website. It was SUPER EASY to set up, but then I had to spend a few days to figure out how to make it show stuff that I put there. So many challenges, like you get to see tons of pages about stuff like "squeel", and try out different combinations that people suggest. But it finally works.
    Reaction:
    Haha, squeel does sound silly for such a stuff. Is the text they suggest in dolphin language?

    Pro:
    So yesterday I spent 2 hours upgrading our microservice to ASP.NET Core 2.0, and integrated it with Amazon Lambda, to start transitioning to a state-of-the-art serverless *buzzword* *buzzword* *buzzword*.
    Reaction:
    What? Whatever...

    @AndSoWeCode what if a literature students reads tech documentation, blogs or books. Is that something for fun for him, since reading novel will make him look like he is working ??

    @jalebiBhai if they're good enough, they could be making a ton of money out of it. If they read, then they like it. Why not make money out of it and waste time becoming a professional in other stuff?
    If you like other stuff, why waste time on tech docs instead of becoming better at that other stuff?

    The point is, non-pros don't read tech documentations enough to say "I usually read technical documentation".

    And I've already been on that train called "let's find that one hypothetical exception from this rule and use it to dismantle this virtually universal rule". Let's just skip it and admit what we're actually doing and who we really are.

    I read code written by some goon, who knew jack shit about the language he was writing, ten years ago. With comments like "TO-DO: Fix this hack ASAP" dated 4 years back.

    @Noob I just feel in love the instant I first saw it. It hardly requires 3-4 days to get understand it ecosystem

    It's relatively fast, very robust and has a nice syntax.
