A bunch of people who know a bunch of frameworks but lack intrinsic understanding CS, therefore bringing the degeneration of overall quality.
This ultimately leads to:
1- shitty dev jobs (the future blue-collar job, always in risk to be automated)
2- super high-end dev jobs (most likely AI engineering, devops, data science)
As generations pass, this shapes out a whole new world economy.2

15 mins before the Production Release, after accidentally merging the Dev branch with the Master one :)2
Why: cause it literally saves you time.
Bonus: VS Code for anything else (python or golang)3
Damn you devpost. That Alexa skill I submitted definitely *does* use APL, and *does* qualify for the participation prize.
(The fact I can now churn out Alexa skills eligible for most of these prizes in a few minutes is besides the point, gimme gimme please.)
As usual, the million-dollar question: whats the best laptop to buy for developers, in the price range up to $1,500?
I'm between a 2015 Macbook Pro, the new Dell Latitude or the Thinkpad T460 😕11
I tell a designer at the company to take a look at a (huge) corporate web project we're currently building. He's not assigned to the project, but I thought a fresh eye and recommendations could be good for future Sprints, since we're doing a first release in a month.
The guy knew all of this, yet his "designer a.k.a artistic spirit" couldn't hold him from sending a UI/UX review to the PM, of about 6-7 pages or smth - I dont even remember now.
The whole report had a total misunderstanding of the business logics, because he didn't even wait for me to explain that shit to him. Eventually his versions of UX suggestions were irrelevant. It was pretty funny, now that i think about it.
I'm guessing he just hoped to get some attention...?
tldr: its fucking disgusting when designers try to act as artists;2
It feels good to jot down tasks for the day in the first 5 minutes of coming to office. I know what needs to be done for the day and what was accomplished the previous day. Also I tend to be on proper track during daily standup. So maintaining a work related TODO list helps a lot.
