You know you did a good job when someone mostly unskilled with computers can figure out a new feature you made without help6
Ported a Java class to Kotlin. 200 lines of code removed and much cleaner structure.
When you email the creator of a site about some concerns of their api and they make the changes extremely fast.4
At my last job, my boss would constantly tear my work apart, belittle me and patronise me. He didn't really understand web development and just wanted to hire someone to do it for him. I ended up burning out and he persuaded me to quit because of it cause he didn't want to go through the whole disciplinary process (because he had no real reason).
A year later, and I've had my first review with my current boss, who's also a developer. He said he's learned a lot from me, I've helped the business and the junior devs grow; and that he struck gold in hiring me. I've got no feelings of burnout and I actually enjoy going to work now.
I'll be the first person to say that I'm not the best developer on my team and my new boss was probably exaggerating with me a little bit, but it goes to show that the people you work with are some of the most important people in your life.6
Shalom my dudes!
A quick GT from my college years:
>barely knew how to program but eager to learn more and more
>end of first semester, teacher assigns a couple of classic games for extra points
>battleship, pacman, sudoku, tetris, etc. All done in C
>end up with tetris
>2 days later I have the final build, including all the tech shit like walljump
>start thinking to myself "this looks really fucking ugly, what's wrong with me??"
>look up graphic libraries for C when a light flashes on my computer screen
>the next 2 weeks were a montage of me learning linux, understanding ncurses and redoing my code (plus bug fixing)
>palms are spaghetti
>class is impressed with my work
>professor comes up to the board and tells me that I get a 0 because it wasn't "pure C"
>clenched my jaw and walked towards the dean office
>"hey, mind if I show you something?"
>open my laptop and show him the game
>he's having a blast since every time you do a 5 row crunch (a tetris), a piece of clothing of a random model comes off
>explain to him what happened in the classroom
>he looks at my code, runs it on a plagiarism checker and tells me that he will edit the grade himself
> a week later there's a 10 on my grading area
Good guy me. Had an issue and no helpful answers were provided on Stack Overflow. Found a solution, and posted my answer, even the question is 6 months old.5
Not really a bug, but once I tried to learn building function ajax per table asynchronously instead of calling all of them at once. Spend like couple of hours of trial of error. It wasn’t needed at the time, but suddenly I need to fetch something separately because of a new feature. Just write a couple and line it’s done
A coworker and me did together a "hackathon by choice" this week to finish a project. We did it only because we thought it would be cool and be able to finish the thing. Well it was surprisingly fun to stay awake 36 hours, coding all through, having a good flow. After that, our boss came and was very proud of our work and he was able to send it for inspection to the client. I stayed a bit longer to fix a few minor bugs, but after 42h I was finally in bed. 😁
Our boss gives us the following Monday off.
But I think on other projects, often deadlines take the fun out of it, if they are not estimated well... I mean you do great, high-professional work but in the end you feel bad, useless, slow and incompetent because of the pressure.2
This morning, I thought I'd give devRantron a try, and man, I'm not disappointed.
Since I'm always at my computer, I rarely check my phone and now that we have a proper desktop client, I can finally shitpost while sitting at my desk. :v
No seriously though, this app is awesome.
Props to Tahnik and the other guys who worked on it.5
Once made simple .bat file that opens itself.
Changed the icon to Internet Explorer(yea i know what you are thinking but it was like 2003 or smt.)
Victim clicks the shortcut.
BANG! Endless loop of same application eventually freezing everything.
12 years old and feeling like a damn hacker feelsgoodman.jpg.
I just love languages and functions that support using a negative int to access array from the end! Awesome.6
Yesterday senior manager called me with an offer... He needed one more person for running team in charity run.2
Found out today that someone who started game dev with a game jam I started in university has a top 10 game on steam!2
Currently developing an app with React Native for work. It started as a "would be nice to have" feature but now people wanna join my dev team and company wants to see results too. And I am just a student trainee. FeelsGoodMan
Just did a 30min presentation with my team about machine learning and face/pose analysis. Everything went perfectly well. Couldn't be better. Such a good feeling! FeelsGoodMan. Time to go to the cantina :)
My little brother and his friends had a lan party the other day! It took me years but now he and all his friends are proper PC gamers. I hand built my little bros rig, feelsgoodman.
Side note, I think I've converted my siblings and cousins into techies by accident. I'm the oldest so they always asked what I was doing and I taught them what I knew. Now I'm the one learning stuff from them!1
I’m really loving being a contractor and working for myself.
Currently waiting for the client to order the next lot of work, so that means today I got to go out, go swimming, walk down the seafront and just generally have a nice day out in the sun with friends and family.
I can’t believe I didn’t try this whole remote contractor thing sooner.5
when you remember there was an app contest you were gonna enter, quickly write an app in the last 2 weeks, and win2
The laptop retailer sent me an email today that they had to give me a newer model 8570p instead of 8560p, same price. There was also a disclaimer saying that the mentioned specs are the minimum ones and that what i get could have more powerful specs. I wish all computer stores were like this.
miniRant: fuck ISPs who sent with their network gear ethernet cables that are too short, especially when using laptops.
That feeling when you're so close to being ready to push out an update 1 year in the works, just in time for Christmas.
Recently I completed a whole year in programming. Holy jebus, I have no idea I could make it through.
I started thinking I was "decent" at this because I had taken a half dozen courses in python plus some algorithm logic in school lol @ innocent me
I'm an applied math student and I hereby declare I was the most incompetent dude you'll ever see.
My manager would ask me to deliver new shit to an app I was developing mostly by my self in react (I barely even knew what RFC or ES6 was by the time I started).
I got fired from this project because I couldn't deliver by myself what 5 experienced dudes could (debatable, but still... Cuz they couldn't when they took over. Boss wanted to rewrite the whole app in a week and a half)
Turns out I got called back by the same company but to contribute in another project. This time to automate some shizzle with python.
Feelsgoodman but I want out ASAP can't stay sane for longer
The feeling when you keep getting these job offers at creative agencies and others, but can't accept because you're in college
such a double edged sword xD2
