The most stupid question you can ask at an open source software event?
"So, this system, is it open source?"
I asked this to a guy at a stand about the system he was presenting (forgot the project name).
He stared at me with a wtf face and then replied with "....yes.... of course.... this is an OPEN SOURCE software event?!"
I felt quite fucking stupid.16
Fellow front end coworker got asked via email today to "capitalize the '2019' in the headline".

Good morning campers,
It has come to be known that LetsEncrypt will be moving on from a "Small" Certificate Authority to one of the big guys with their own Root certificates in the coming months.
Now for the average joe this means nothing, besides awaiting for root certificate updates to flow down for their operating system 🤔 but for LE, that's a major step up in such a short time of being in existence.5
why in 2019, are browsers so fucking inconsistant.
im not even doing anything stupidly complicated.
simple UL List conataining links and background colors on the LI's....
and yet, every single browser is different, or in IE's case completly lost the plot.20

"Facebook pays teens to install VPN that spies on them"
So after they got banned from the apple app store for doing that directly, they now just abused their certificate to sideload that app.
Yes. Please. Stop putting hidden files in my home directory. It's not the place for it.

Hey, did you know that article 13 & 11 got through because the Swedish pressed the wrong button?

What a great start to 2019 for me.

Me in 2018 : I'll code xLearno.com all on my own!
Me in 2019 : xLearno.com is a team of 5 🎉
Just a quick lesson that I learned in my entrepreneurship career, "You want to go fast, go alone! You want to go far, go together 😍"41
Honestly I finished a ton of personal projects this year and got promoted at work. I’m not going to set goals for 2019, just going to keep doing whatever I’m doing now and enjoy it :)1
Visual Studio 2019 is gonna look awesome… even though I don't get why the new "blue" theme will be violet. 🤔32
uhh interesting, bing search engine algorithm open sourced.
Will anybody have a look at it?
The first Dutch devRant meetup 2019 was amazing, thanks everyone for attending, it was awesome meeting you all!32
for 2019 I want to be the very best dev
that no one ever was
to code them all will be my test
debugging is my cause
I will travel across the net
searching wide on tor
each singleton to understand
the power of the code
devmons its you and me
you know its our destiny
you're my best friend
and our firewall will stand
One of my QA friends told me today,
" If I wanna screw you up, I will just have to delete a semicolon in your code, hahahhaahhaha ". <for real>
There are two problems here
1. He's not familiar with the concept of an IDE
2. I use Python
Stop making fucking " ; " jokes in early 2019 >_<
#No hard feeling to the QAs out there9
- hire a new Dev.
- not burnout this year
- work less, deliver more
- start a open source side project and make it production ready9
Apple, 2018: We are pleased to announce support for Dual SIM on iPhone Xs.

It's Monday. It's already the middle of first month of 2019. There are clients expecting and waiting to see the finished projects. There are tasks with warning and delayed labeled on your boards. You have slept well. Ate well. Drank well. Only remaining thing left is to work and finish your tasks well.
You can do it. And you must.
2018 was a dumpster fuck for me. I was looking for 2019.
Oh boy, I was wrong.
I had a flight booked for 3rd Jan. I was supposed to go to Delhi, back to my job.
On 2nd Jan evening, I got a high fever. 103 F and my heartbeat were around 140. My brother took me to Hospital and after the doctor checked me.
There were no other symptoms. Only high fever. The doctor told me to do some blood test and give me a dose of Antibiotic.
Next day all the result came back negative. Doctor give me 3 days of antibiotic course and told eat light.
After 3 days of getting the 4g antibiotic in my body, Nothing changed. The fever was there and no symptoms.
on the 3rd day, the doctor increases the course to 2 days and told me to get more blood test. I also had to get 4D sonography and Heart ECG and its sonography.
on the 5th day, nothing changed. I still had a high fever. All the blood test were negative.
On the 6th day, I was admitted to the hospital and my medicine was changed to high does of broad-spectrum antibiotics and lots of new blood test.
There were taking blood from one hand and giving antibiotics to another.
After the broad-spectrum antibiotics, my fever went down to normal but all the 17 blood test I did came completely negative.
On the 8th day, we went to an infection specialist. He checked all the report and ask us to do a very details sonography. After all those things he said it most likely staphylococcus infection.
So here I am, making a chart of my temperature every 2 hours and taking two tablets every day.
This last 10 was very hard. There was a point where I was thinking "this is it. I am gonna die".
I am still waiting for a very detailed blood report which takes 5 days to create. I will get it after 2 days.
So after lots of medicine and over 15+ reports, Here I am working from home.
What a wonderful start of 2019.11
Well, if your tests fails because it expects 1557525600000 instead of 1557532800000 for a date it tells you exactly: NOTHING.
Unix timestamp have their point, yet in some cases human readability is a feature. So why the fuck don't you display them not in a human readable format?
Now if you'd see:
vs the expected
you'd know right away that the first date is wrong by an offset of 2 hours because somebody fucked up timezones and wasn't using a UTC calculation.
So even if want your code to rely on timestamps, at least visualize your failures in a human readable way. (In most cases I argue that keeping dates as an iso string would be JUST FUCKING FINE performance-wise.)
Why do have me parse numbers? Show me the meaningful data.
Timestamps are for computers, dates are for humans.3
My devGoals for 2019 are:
- Move DNS blocking from hosts file to a PiHole (or similar) at home
- Implement a full HAL for some smol microcontroller in C
- Create better automation templates for testing, building & deployment for our Angular projects
- Get rid of crippling depression
- Force my boss away from firebase and google tools in general
- Spread the love for CraftCMS
- Spread more love in general (with protection of course) 😄3
I can’t believe that posting screenshots of tweets from Hollywood actors counts as news. Welcome to 2019...3
Goals for 2019
- get a Raspberry Pi
- Land a job in development
- get my driver's license
- buy a car
- learn a new language (any suggestions?)
- rant more on DevRant
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE 🎇🎉11
I tried to contact a big German company about an API endpoint we might want to build a connection to. The docs are behind a login. I request login info through a form and get a mail that my request will be checked and I'll hear from them in 2-3 days. Because my boss wants this info until Friday, I try to call them.
First try: "we currently have a disruption in our phone central, please try again later"
2nd try: "sure, I'll put you through! *beep beep* - connection broke off
3rd try: "this number is not in use" (I used redial, didn't make a typo)
4th try: same as the 2nd try, again.
German red tape and technology at its finest. Fml.6
After protests have been announced against article 11/(12/)13 on 23.03. German EVP politicians want to move date of the final vote before the protests.

TLDR; Lost passion after a few years, wasted a year, went on vacation without really any technology, found my passion and am excited as hell for 2019.
After programming for nearly 5 years, I’ve hit the point of not wanting to program anymore. I’ve burnt myself out, and haven’t had a vacation in 8+ years so we’ve finally decided to take one. I’m not going to say it’s a full blown vacation, but a semi-vacation since it’s with my parents also so I do have to do a few things I’d prefer not to such as meeting relatives.
I didn’t have the motivation to work on any new projects, finish any projects I actually enjoyed, I just did a few side projects for friends that took me anywhere from 5 minutes to 30 minutes every few weeks. In general this year has been garbage in development terms, I’ve lost passion. It felt like a chore, I didn’t find the entertainment I once did.
I’ve been away from technology for about 2 weeks now, and have less than a week left before I fly back and I’m excited as hell. During this break away from technology (with the exception of browsing devRant once in a while), has me excited to work on many projects and actually start learning and improving my skills. I’ve actually gained the motivation to work on 2 projects that have been planned for nearly 2 years now, I’ve noted down ideas for them, made diagrams, etc, just never had the passion to develop them. 2019 is going to be one hell of a year, since I get back almost at the end of November, and December I have a few business meetings and University exams that I have to prepare for. Excited to see these projects through, one is going to be for the hell of it, just been a passion project I’ve wanted to do for years now. The other project is actually a project for one of my sub-companies that hasn’t officially released since I didn’t have the passion to work on it. (Not going to go into full detail yet about the companies/projects, going to save that for the future)
Alongside that, I’m excited since my main company that is totally unrelated to technology, is set to do some massive moves during 2019 also. Looking forward to that, and being able to launch my dream company (the sub-company I mentioned before).
Time for sleep now, goodnight! (Wrote this after a few drinks and in the middle of the night, hopefully it’s not full blown garbage)2

I think the award for “riskiest dev choice” might be awarded to the developers who wrote the Boeing 737 Max anti-stall MCAS code. But it could also be argued that the root cause was hardware and lack of redundancy of sensors.
Now I know why our Australian trained junior "Software Engineers" are so dumb. According to academics, "...students in postgraduate IT courses were unsure how to use a computer or a USB drive."

I know I can't be the only one thinking safari is the new IE, like "it has to work on safari" makes me way more sad than "it has to work on edge"
IE is default unsupported in my company
This time around I figured out that fucking safari can't work properly with dates!
new Date("2019-05-16 11:00") // won't work
new Date("2019/05/06 11:00") // will work
new Date("16/05/2019 11:00") // won't work
new Date("11/05/2019 11:00") // will work, but it's November the 5th
Ok, the last 2 bugs are due to English&American who can't understand how dates work, but still... WHY IS SAFARI THE ONLY DIFFERENT ONE?9

A couple of days ago I got sent this Node.js project that hasn't been touched in a year, to see what's missing compared to the requirements and estimate the dev costs.
-> Cloned the project
-> Checked the dependencies
-> Saw a library who's github was archived 2 years ago, and the latest version is a completely redesigned fork
-> Closed the laptop
-> Cried out loud "HOHOHO Hell NO"

Aviation must be slowly dying because all everyone does is play fortnite and use noise cancelling headphones. Kids these days don't do anything useful, and they don't even have dreams about flying anymore because they're too self absorbed. In fact, they don't even see aircraft, because they're so isolated. The only career any kid wants to purse these days is professional gaming.

Fuck this guy9
Cure all my sicknesses
Push my income up to five digits/mo

Y'all might wanna update your Win7, Win8 amd Win Server 2008.
RDP RCE with a CVSS pf 9.8.
Launch my app in Play store
Build more projects
Make work fun for client
Learn learn and learn....
I had to switch machines in class. To continue working on my project, I needed to install 17 gb worth of Unity 2019 bullshit. Guess what? They removed the progress bar in the move to Unity Hub. Now I just get "Installing..." This seems minor, until I don't know if I'll be working in two minutes or two fucking days. What the fuck, Unity? Why would you remove a fucking progress bar?2
* Google employee reviews.
* Maybe check out how volatile their stock prices are (if they’re publicly traded).
* Use LinkedIn to find their employees and then stalk them on Facebook and see what kind of content they post.
* If you can’t tell from that, just DM them. Tell them why you’re contacting them and ask for their honest opinion.1
As per my 2019 resolution, I want to hit the gym at least 3 days per week. But I only manage to go once a month. And the day after the gym, my muscles hurt that I'm not able to even type when coding.
Anyone like me, who struggled and managed to hit the gym as desired? Any tips?12
Ok so I keep obsessing over RE2 because the game is just so fucking cool. But one thing that I want to make notice for us computer nerds:
In the police station, when you see the computers there that are on, you see a very 90's interface, and of course you will, the game takes place in 1998.
When you are at the Umbrella NEST facility, there are computers there, the interface looks TODAY modern. Meaning that(and I know we all fans of the games knew this already) Umbrella's tech is far beyond what common civilian entities have. I know this is done intentionally and I know people are aware of it, but I just think that it is a really really REALLY cool element to the story to have something like this.
On another note, I want to get excited about Kingdom Hearts 3. But fuck this it has been so long and I had already forgotten everything about 1 and 2 and I am not really a fan of the series anymore. A friend is coming over to play it, I just wish I was more hyped for it.5
Dis-incentive them with a visible cost or better yet by total man hours.
Goals for 2019
- Land an internship at either of the companies I'm in the final stages of interview for.
- Nail my exams.
- Publish an application to the app store.
- Buy an RTX 2080ti.
- Start a blog.
(Dev-ish goals I guess)
Woo... A present from Google http://ai.googleblog.com/2019/02/...
Now I don't have a reason to work for Google though... Not that I could get in but...
Is it a bit ironic that my first and only native Android app ~10 years ago was to solve the same problem?1
Lots of hate towards Microsoft, and they go and do something like this:
I'm excited for these features. With existing .NET Core you can compile console apps natively to Windows/MacOS/Linux. WPF and WinForms soon making it to .NET Core will bring the ability to compile native GUI apps too.
Oh, and .NET Core is all open source. It's a beautiful, beautiful thing.6
Major project, multi million budget, huge business and IT coordination, board level status updates, meeting started back in March 2018 for a Go Live of Aug 2019.
Based on draft requirements (and experience) I request the test environment be built for half of the work. Turns out that no one told Server Eng and they are out of space in both dev and prod until Q2 of 2019. We went from Green to Red because a Service Request.5
Watched Blade Runner 2 this afternoon and now watching one.
Apparently we are supposed have flying cars in 2019... But now that got pushed to 2048
The special effects and car got an upgrade though...
Wonder what it will be like in 2048...2
So here are my goals for 2019 in no particular order:
-contribute to open source
-switching from intellij to vscode
-finish side projects
-live a healthier lifestyle (less meat, quality food)
-do some hacking challenges
-learn proper linux system administration6
I promised myself that if I didn't start up a new relationship by September that I would plan to start a new lease in life and move in 2019. The online dating subscription I've used for a few years will cancel at the end of this month.
I used to doubt that fate was real, but times like this make me come close to believing in it. Maybe fate is just one large karmic refactoring.4
So the EU elections went pretty well, according to the latest news. Even though the conservative parties (EPP) still hold the most seats, they have lost 39 seats compared to the last election and they’re considered the losers of the election along with the social democrats (see: https://election-results.eu/tools/...). That’s huge!
On the other hand, liberals and greens seem to have won the election overall. I’m pretty happy with that.
Also, some news concerning the copyright reform: Poland seems to have complained to the European Court of Justice. With a new parliament and a weaker EPP, chances are that the disaster might be averted.15
Regarding processors, 2019 is going to be interesting :
Arm vs Intel vs AMD
1. Get that senior-appropriate raise
2. Build a real ML project
3. Learn web assembly and get to the next level in web dev
Heya! I've created something in C# you might find useful (though it's simplistic, and not my idea).
It's a program which has a progress bar for the current year, one for the current month, for the day, hour, and minute. Here it is, if you want to try it: https://dropbox.com/s/...
Based off the Mac version (not made by me): https://twitter.com/year_progress/...
Which costs $5, by the way... While I uploaded it for free u.u
What do you think?
Also, there might be an easter egg for 2019 ;D
Happy new year, everyone! 💙2
having business logic on the presentation layer.
horay for testability and consistency.
dudes, please. its 2019. WTF are you calling yourselves programmers?2
I got engaged this year. Can't wait to see what 2019 will bring me. Hope you guys had an awesome 2018 too!2
What do you think how much time will it take to crack Creative Cloud 2019?
I bet 2 weeks from now.6
Though I don't use vim, but why all the hate when it is a widely used software?
...This algo can predict new thermoelectric material discoveries years in advance...
Me to all material scientists : "Work harder or we'll replace you with AI".
P.S : I also need to work harder as I barely know the surface of Linear Regression.1
Hey, I wrote about how to properly debug your code, this is more for beginner programmers, but would be nice to hear feedback from you :) https://chriscode.home.blog/2019/...
Picture not related3
Is this actually a thing in 2019?
I'm being asked to run a JS seminar with Eclipse as the IDE. I've not seen this used in a JS shop for ages. Are there significant pockets of use out there that I'm unaware of?3
Client sueing vendor for shitty development job. Is this going to become a trend?
It's 2019, we've landed on Mars, 8 years since CSS animations came available and yet we can't still animate SVG 100% with CSS animations.9
It’s 2019 and back-office software for defining till receipts still results in £ turning into ú when printed.
You just have to know that you need to write ^156 instead.1
GitHub now offers unlimited private repos for its free plan users...
Max contributors for those repos will be 3 which is expected.
Queue Microsoft Haters 😂
Back from Christmas vacation, contractor account expired, no VPN, no mails.
Of course, contractor IT is not available.
Date.parse("2019-01-01") = local time
Date.parse("2019-01-01T00:00") = UTC
Why? How's that supposed to make sense? Am I stupid? I just want UTC to be assumed for everything. Anyone? Any suggestions?5
Rewrite my entire side-project from scratch using Kotlin and AndroidX. While doing so I want to learn about state of the art encryption and key derivation functions (especially Argon2).
Oh yeah, and finish my PhD...
The 2019 StackOverflow Developer Survey is out. What are the most relevant key takeaways for you?
Those money whores of google at it again
I hereby invite all chrome users to firefox9
I'm off any caffeine since eastern 2019.
Funny tho, I work as efficient as always + get a natural amount/intensity of sleep :)3
For everyone that has complained that my apartment and keyboards are messy... It's nowhere as bad as this stuff...
I thought this was good.
It’s also strange that by opening up Chrome’s Dev Tool’s Console you can pretty much write old school C/Basic like code from when programs were transferred via a bound dead tree medium.
"Your connection is not secure". It is too! The certificate is valid to 2019, and in Chrome it's no problem. Stupid Firefox!3
Happy Christmas and happy new years. 2018 was not a good year for me. Many project got delayed and not happy with my performance. I wanted to learn many thing and do many things but was not able to achieve those things.
I don't even feel like enjoying my birthday anymore. (It's on 27).
Let's hope the 2019 will be better than this dumpster fuck 2018.1
You must've heard of recent unfamous CVE-2019-5736 vulnerability. This morning one of my hosting providers forcefully updated k8s version because of that. They also provide terraform module for k8s, which has "version" field required.
So during regular CI/CD process, TF decided it wants to recreate all existing clusters on that provider, basically wiping out everything there is.
No dataloss or operations disruption was registered, but a day was ruined. Guess nobody to blame except me.2
Name a more 2018/2019 New Year’s Eve.. We used a new emoji in a commit message and it borked the CI pipeline.5
Uh oh, watch out for the latest security issue in Atlassian products ...
How bad of an idea is to delve into php in 2019? But since I have to, I would like few links on how web applications are made in php or it's frameworks such as laravel.5
Faced a guy who tried to pin, his data not coming up on our app. After debugging I found out he was sending the timestamp as his local time + 'z'(e.g. 2019-06-13T22:38:54.143Z), thinking thats for est and blamed us for why his data is not showing at correct time.3
F-Droid can't even download apps properly. It's fucking 2019 and you haven't figured out how to download files in background?! What are you, F-Droid devs, braindead?5
Follow up on previous post https://devrant.com/rants/1986014/...
Tell my dad about this and this is the convo we have when he goes "why didn't you think of that... in fact I had this app idea 2 years ago"

I'm just a random student that didn't really accomplish something well-known or anything, but I'm very dedicated and always had a project in my spare time running. My goal for 2019 is finishing a playable version of a game I'm developing on my own for about a year now. It's all planned out and I just got to put more hours into it. Really looking forward to people seeing what I'm capable of!2
I don't understand how having multiplatform tools to take screenshots still in 2019 continue to take disgusting photos with your cell phones3
I believe that in 2018 I have learned a lot but haven't used that knowledge to the maximum. So my 2019's main goal is to use things that I've learned or currently going to learn. Along with that I want to see people grow together, so mentoring people is another goal that I have in my mind. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or idea regarding this, that would be very much helpful.
Very Happy New Year to all.
Goal for 2019
- finish project I started in Q4 2018 and launch website with it
- maybe find some non invasive way to monetize this and earn some money
If I got time and power left :
- learn more autodesk fusion,
- design robotic arm using above tool
- print it in 3d

- make it pick up stuff for me
In 2019, I wish to contribute to more open source projects, pick up C++ and create more projects of my own which hopefully leads to a successful startup.
Pretty much any sic-fi movie. Loving 2019 movies : Atlia, avengers end game, captain Marvell, Godzilla, starwars episode dark phoenix, MIB international, Shazam, spider Man far from home, 😊😁😀
Yeah pretty much don't have a life 🤪😜
Is the MySQL 5.6 deprecated? One of the colleague said but i could not find a date if it is. Even they GA 5.6.44 on 2019-04-25.12
In 2019, we still find a contact form with a required checkbox to register at the newsletter and sales solicitation.2

-Work on my own project that hopefully takes off
I’ve taken some time to set aside some resolutions for the new year in the form of an evolving page on my blog. First time I’ve actually set any resolutions. I probably won’t reach a majority of them but it was a good exercise in setting them up.
I just discover a new way to achieve infinite loop today: https://github.com/necolas/...
I can't wait for 2019 and react-native-web-mobilr1
Realizing mid knowledge transfer session how bad I currently am at public speaking...
I guess I'll add another goal for 2019.
2018 has been a year full of lessons.

Travel with my gf at least once.
Start a master degree in CS if job allows me.
Get a little closer with my family and friends.
2019 - The year I try freelancing as a contractor and doing some paid side projects as an alternative to permanent employment. I'm sure it'll be ok, I've only got a mortgage to pay and a young family to feed! 😬
Seriously though, looking forward to getting a wider range of experience and having some in-between contract down time. What are your experiences of contracting?1
Dev goals for 2019:
At least one substantial tech blog post per month (no rain-checks allowed)
Do whatever it takes to have Elixir as the focus of my day job instead of .Net
its already 2019 and still.. why do most of the popular html5 ui framework still needs minimum of 3 divs deep just to get a grid view!?3
Log points in chrome Dev tools
Cool feature to stop unwanted console message in chrome browser
"Stay humble because the second you stop being a student, your knowledge becomes fragile."
Just read that in an article (https://smashingmagazine.com/2019/...) and damn if that is not the most truthful sentence ever written about development... idk what is!
Take this how you will:
"The more experienced a respondent is, the more likely they are to say blockchain technology is an irresponsible use of resources."
Old farts refusing to budge from their ways, or old farts knowing better?
Guys I need some input.
So me and my coworker discussed IDEs and I told him about this comment I read on StackOverflows blogpost about the developer survey of 2019.
Here's The link: https://stackoverflow.blog/2019/02/...
And the comment mentioned that he/she wanted more choices when it comes to IDE themes.
That got me thinking, what other than light/dark would be Nice to have. And why?
And why arent we given more than two to choose from?10
Even if he's emotional, someone on devRant have similar stories/experiences?
I’ve been on a couple of projects like this. Not to this magnitude, but similar types of communication and tech problems.
