Search - "android only?"
So i wanna get my hands dirty in tech hardware. i have learned the abc of computers only 7 years ago, and i still consider myself a very noob in computers since my first computer was a laptop and even today ita still the laptop.
i got 0 experience with assembling, 0 experience setting up my network cards, cpu disks , ram in slots and what not.
but this changes in next few weeks. i am fed up with ugly jamf limitations on my office laptop, fed up with the 20-mins-to-run emulators on my personal laptop , and overall fedup with this capitalist mindset that goes into making these "4 years until shit is weak" laptops.
the only exception i find in laptops are the mac laptops which are delightful to be used , especially there hardware. however they too seem to be made with $$$ in mind and i am not going to spend $4k on a piece of beautiful metal which can't run emulators properly.
so my dear seasoned professionals, can you guide me with how to build a PC? the only requirement is smooth experience with android studio emulators and a possibility to upgrade processor, ram , ssd, etc whenever the tech grows (which i guess is a possibility with PCs, right?)7
so i think i have grown into a lazy ass and joined a company that's currently okay with a lazy ass , and i feel am looking at a big future doom.
its been 3 weeks in the company, i have got to know the product a little, but didn't contributed at all in it, i got a task of testing the sdk which i have been doing for quite some time, and have gained a personal growth of 0%
i have become such a lazy/anxious ass that i can't seem to get out of my office environment to read something that will improve me. i feel bad when i don't know how website, backend , cloud or certain android stuff works but since thw pressure to know them is coming from nowhere , i don't even try reading about them.
sometimes i feel worried that if someone asked me why i was reading something else in office hours the i won't be able to reply ( even though we don't have any official office hours and mthe company says they "only care about the task being completed") but most of the times its just... the lack of motivation to not pick that up. ironically i am watching movies or sleeping during my self defined office hours but not doing anything productive
maybe i have become more inclined towards money. so much so that i might not pick anything up if i am not being paid for it
any tips to come out of this hell hole? i feel like maybe doing some freelance projects would help but am scared shit to think of what will happen of my current employer finds out
You know what sucks? Android having only 2 languages for their android app documentation why can't it at least support rust or typescript or other languages, im sick of all of this "fun" stuff
if you would choose the android documentation language what would you pick? ;o
my jetbrains ide is currently crying in a corner...13
