Search - "feelsgood"
Yesterday I managed to optimize a query...
Went from 43 seconds to 0.0702 seconds.
For some reason mysql decided to copy the data of 4 huge tables into a temp table and do its operations there... (the copying to temp tale took 42/43 seconds)
Two composite indexes later and I saved the company hours of time over the course of a few months.
First few days as a professional software engineer (c# .net) have gone decent. Made my first bigger commit today started working on a small new feature that requires more work.
CoWorkers are really nice, boss is cool, super chill over all. #feelsgood6
My first bug report to chrome was resolved today.
Slowest triage ever and they doubted me every step of the way.3
Last week I got assigned to an important AND interesting project!
Today I got a raise!
2019 is starting off nicely :)5
The feeling when you realise the 4 letter username on devRant you wanted hasn't actually been taken.8
So I just fixed about a year or so old bug by removing my solution entirely.
As very few of you will know, I work on/ off on a project called TG which accelerates cmd.exe
One of my oldest bugs in this project is that the buffer resizes real weird. If you adjust both the height and width at the same time, it goes into this weird infinite loop business.
As it turns out, cmd.exe handles that by itself just fine. I just removed my resize listeners and now everything is running smooth.
Not so long ago, I used to talk to Devs for advice.
And now people are asking me for advice in their paths.
Anyone has had similar experiences?1
When I published my first app and some people made an official thread in a forum. When I went there they told me I had done a good work. Needless to say they don't know me at all.
This is what I do every time I feel like garbage.
x = input("Type your name")
print(x + " is awesome!")
Not so much a rant.
I just love the feeling when you test a site on mobile and you can't help but say to yourself, "Damn, I'm good" because the menu is just so usable and scales beautifully.1
Finally found a use for my rpi 2 after more than a year xD
Small testing env for client server scripts and OS portability, later project buy a rpi zero W and try to use it as something probably illegal :/
When you complain to a teacher about the lack of challenge in another class and he tells you he's gonna make you build a sudoku solver.
I'm getting quite bored from doing the mini c++ assignments and was talking about it to another teacher when he explained he'd got a background in AI and algos so he told me he'd teach me some more interesting stuff :D
Worst part about being a developer?
Coding the apex-maximum-feelsgood-climax of your code, feeling like a genius and then your mom calls you to dinner and you feel like you've lost trillions of geniusly made ideas that could save the world from aids while eating your pasta.. yeah, that's the worst part.
Pushing a project in production without as much problems as expected is a very, very good feeling.
Have a great Friday, fellow developers.1
Best boss ?
Well, on Friday we learned our business was shutting down, bankruptcy.
Other new recruits have had a 10 days notice. My boss had me a 30 days notice instead, and have been fighting day and night since then to find a new investor to buy our solution and hire the team with it, comforting me that I will be part of that team.
Feelsgood to have a boss having your back :-)
