I was showing my girlfriend how merge sort works... Halfway through my visual explanation, she took the pen from me and finished the algorithm.
I think I have chosen wisely :')9
Inspiring the generations...
In Tech world everyone is welcome to achieve their goals and taking the world to new levels together.4
At job interview.
Interviewer: What are your goals in life?
Me: Well... Right now... Getting 1000 upvotes in devRant so I can get that fat cat on my avatar....6
That feeling when you've been writing some sophisticated feature in Java for 2 consecutive days and you compile the code waiting for errors but it just works fine without any errors.12
- Resist the urge to kill my boss
- Remember, I'd be someone's bitch in prison so definitly don't murder my boss
- Find an amazing new job
- Work in new job for some years to avoid suspicion, then kill former boss..8
-How persistent are you on achieving the goals?
-I saw the end of the Excel table
-The job is yours1
I grew up poor. First time I saw a computer face to face was when I was 11 years old. Back then any other references to computers came through media. I genuinely believed that hacking was as seen on TV, didn't even question 2 idiots 1 keyboard and thought it was genius to unplug a computer during "an attack"
Fact is I arrived in this country when I was 11. By the time I had my first laptop I was around 13-14, as you can imagine it went really poorly for someone who was just awarded a machine of never-ending stories and entertainment with absolute fear that a single mistake can cause everything to crash and burn. Heck, I remember when I went to Vodafone and someone recommended Firefox, it was such a novelty back then, heh.
I didn't understand computers. My IT lessons were replaced to work on my dialect, but truth be told it was an awful waste of time. I've learned more from forums than I ever learned from any English teacher. I just sat there twidling my thumbs in agitation.
With no concept of what IT industry entitles (my idea of programming was cubicles and call centres), I never had a slightest clue programming could be for me. I always thought of myself closer to engineering or physics type, but that never really drew my interests. So I dwelled in depression thinking I'm broken. Useless. That there was no calling for me.
I'm 22. For the past year I dipped in and out of programming, it still felt like such black magic.vLast month or so the spell dispelled and I finally feel like my eyes have been opened. I've spent the past 3 days sitting in front of my computer learning or actively programming, with occasional dips into DevRant reading your stories, frustrations and victories and I truly feel at home.
In retrospect I feel like I made the right decision for not chasing any mathematical/physics/engineering degrees, while certainly a goal of mine, I feel like I'd be miserable in those communities. They're closer to hobbies, really.
I guess what I wanted to say is thank you. Thank you DevRant for being the spark in my null future and giving me a sense of purpose and belonging. For the first time I feel like I can make it, like there was hope somewhere over the horizon.3
So I bitched about how shitty PHP was during the whole four years of my major and the first job I landed was a PHP developer position...9
2019 resolutions/goals recap: (non-personal ones)
1) Improve diet (did; e.g. ramen and fast food to clean keto)
2) Lose weight (did; lost 24 pounds!)
3) Find a good job (did, twice)
4) Buy a harp (did not; large and expensive, no place to put it, and I have small children who would absolutely break it)
5) Keep house clean, even if it's by myself (did, somewhat; I cleaned some, managed to get one other person to clean semi-regularly, and another sporadically)
6) Work on social awkwardness (did; read and applied Dale Carnegie's The Art of Public Speaking, which netted me my last job offer. Still pretty awkward though)
7) Move out of the desert (did not; not enough money, and job didn't allow remote work)
8) Stop bloody waiting on people (did not; still very guilty of this...)
I don't remember the rest 🙁 didn't write them down last year. But I still accomplished 5 out of the 8 I remembered, with one being a pass, so 5/7!
1) Finally move out of the desert
2) Invest 20% of my income every month
3) Reduce bills by 20%
4) Solve/address some health issues
5) Make a schedule so things regularly get done around the house, e.g. cleaning
6) Find some friends and make time for them
7) Replace Debian with something else
8) Revamp my backup system
9) Be proactive and stop waiting on people
10) Build a (stationary) coil gun for fun18

Visual Studio wasn't responding and I wanted to close it via task manager ... But as I clicked the button "close task" task manager wasn't responding😭5
Haven’t posted here in a while, life has changed lots since last time. I applied to a new job in September/ October last year, called in for 1st round of interviews in December, got job offer in Valentine’s Day this year. I got a 42% Pay rise increase by going from private media company to governmental company.
Plus the annual pay and pension negotiations just got completed (all gov employees), so that’s a 1.55% payrise. And because I’m in an union, I might get another 1.24% payrise later this year.
So now I work at the National Archives of Norway. Which is just awesome.
Attaching a picture of my new desk, just missing the new 27” monitor I added on the left side.4
Every fucking day in my company, we get an email from the HR titled "Good Morning, have a nice <DAY_OF_WEEK>", and the message contains a low quality shitty picture grabbed from a random Google search containing a equally shitty quote.
Today's quote read "Happy Friday! Friday is a day to finish your goals of the week!"
lmao like am I suppose to wait till Friday to finish my 'goals of the week'?
I'm so sick of these dumb fucks someone send help 🙄9
I'm a freelance web developer and I'm only 16 years old, coding since 5 years! Go for your goals, you can do it!5
Stop fooling yourself by thinking that the hurry & pressure will eventually go away if you work overtime & stretch yourself to heroics weekly. They won't, and they never will (and even shouldn't). Focus on building sustainable habits that propel you towards your goals day by day, and don't give up until you're where you want to be. Period.2
Part of an honest interview :
- What is your biggest weakness?
+ Triceps femoris muscles
- Why do you want this job?
+ Earning money to buy food so that I don't die of hunger.
- How do you handle pressure?
+ By shouting the word fuck
- What are your goals?
+ Have a cheek in bed every night.
- We will be in touch.
+ you never call, do you?3
Me when I actually complete all the goals and deadlines I set for the past week. It's a complete first, but I did it.5

1. Success in supporting my wife for her personal goals
2. Quality time with my family, especially with my daughter
3. Maintain my current brain abilities2
Applies for Android Internship
Supervisor: Work with this Image Processing Library to "RECOGNIZE" objects from the phones camera.
Supervisor: Also it should be in real time and can't use internet.
Me: But that's impossible....
Supervisor: Align your goals with the company's goal. Nothing is impossible......(gets all motivational)
My one goal is to build something that lets me stay at home with my lil girl all day. Have been thinking about my own company for a while, there are 2 software companies in town with very weak tech stacks. I know I am better and can do better. So my goal is to build my own company and hire enough people to take care of it while I spend more time with my daughter. I get sad when I have to drop her off at the daycare while me and the wife have to go to work. All I want to do is be with my family.11
My banker is from Kenya and every time I see him we completely drift off finance and talk at length on education, specifically technical education.
I have some experience teaching in high school, and when he said they could really use people like me in Kenya, it resonated.
I would like to go back to the industry once I'm done with the PhD, but I don't think about the industry as endgame.
I'd like to eventually be an educator, or someone who contributes to educational programs and processes.14
I moved to US a month ago and now I work as a steward in a hotel but I hate this job so fucking much. The fact that I know how to code and work in this shitty job feels like I lose chromosomes every second I work there. I just really wish I could work on what I love and code a lot. When I'm at work I listen to programming podcasts (I listen to this app podcasts too) and just think about the internship I'm doing. Code is always running in my head and it all feels like I waste my time even doe I need it for now until I can have enough money to move to another state. I hope this situation changes for the better.7
Goals for 2018:
0. Finish some side projects
1. Take python skills to the next level
2. Start a new bigger project.
3. Dive into machine learning2

- Grow my department in work to over 40 people worldwide
- Start and finish my Masters degree in Big Data*
- Speak at 5 major international conferences (1000+ ppl)11
I wrote my first own contribution, pushed, made a pull request and merged to master today all by myself at my trainee job!
Long long ago, I had a dream to start a startup.
Till today I'm not able to find an idea.
Then, I realized ideas cannot be forced. They come when they come.6
- finish my masters
- improve my code quality
- build at least 3 personal projects
- learn 2 new technologies
- find better clients or a good job1
Did you know that talking about your goals actually decreases your chances of reaching them? It's a form of social validation. Talking about them and receiving praise from your peers in a sort of mini-goal which could replace the actual goal so you are less motivated to actually go for the real goal. Best of luck anyway! May the odds be ever in your favor when facing procrastination😂1
I received the laptop I got for granny. 17 fucking inches.
I'm legit jealous.
I mean, it's probably less suited for my goals because we almost exclusively looked for largest screen size possible, but damn.
I could do with a 17 inch display.8
It feels like we have a "kickoff meeting" for something every few days.
Maybe we wouldn't have to kick off so often if anyone actually guarded the... goals.
Last year my goals were two:
- work less
- earn more
and I only achieved the second one.
Based on that, my new resolutions are:
- sleep more
- do not work more
- earn more or equal
- to gain stability
- more efficient workouts7
Why the fuck do we set time based deadlines on projects/goals/sprints?
The only way to know accurately how long it would take is if you've done it before. And if you've done it before why are you coding it again?
And of course when these deadlines aren't met it's rarely the manager that gets shit; it's the devs who failed to meet a guess.47
Goals For 2019:
- Lose 15~20 Kg on weight
- Learn some NodeJS, react and react native.
- Create a decent Portfolio
- Plan for my own project
- Wait for my new unborn yet baby6
One shitty thing about working in a Japanese company is that they make you write personal goals/targets (目標). These goals they expect you to achieve don't actually relate to your work most of the time and it's not about personal growth, but more about what you did to improve the company.
Another thing is their expectations that you can achieve all this within a year on top of your work is kind of unrealistic. Plus even if you achieve such goals, it does not equate to good performance review and/or salary increases.8
Manager: we want to autoplay a video on the homepage of the eCommerce site, and links to go to the blog.
Hmm, do you have "getting bounce rate to 100%" as one of the goals this quarter?2
When I was in school, people came to me every once in a while, wanting to make a new great MMORPG with destructible terrain and factions.
Then came the guys who wanted to make a new amazing app that will help them fix some minor life inconveniences (like tracking expiry dates on the groceries in your fridge).
And now there are guys who want to make blockchain, IoT and chatbot based startups.
I just want to watch youtube and post shit on the internet. :(1
1. Manage my time better.
2. Find motivation to wake up and go to work.
3. Fake more smiles.
4. Kick ass hole (L)users in the throat when they piss me off...
5. Attend anger management.
6. Stop making shit lists.
In all honestly I need to dedicate more time to my personal clients and stop allowing my primary job’s frustration to drain my motivation to take care of their needs. It’s not fair to them that I chose the life I have. Find myself and attempt to love myself again. Create more time to focus on my health and goals. Surround myself with people that have goals and want to better their life. Find someone to share life with.
Then, with my luck; throw it all away and repeat these steps like a broken record.
Well, I got 2 mega arduino kits and a raspberry pi over xmas (and no experience with either), plus unemployment, so my goals are learning the hardware side of things this year.
Also, hi devRant.2
1. Learn android development
2. Spend more time coding than procastinating (its not my job)
3. Learn more cpp
4. Publish my first android app
5. Finish my current project2
Dog barks. Then the other dog barks. Then the lady who owns the dog starts yelling at the dogs. She's yelling and they are barking - and they get louder and louder. What was the goal again? Oh yeah... this is just how agencies work. Go with it. The goals don't matter.2
Hello fellow people,
though I'm normally just a lurker, I want to take some time to make some new years resolutions I probably won't follow after a few days, but I do have some small goals I hopefully can achieve.
1. Hopefully not regretting to post this. I get kind of anxious when I think about someone I know could see this. I'm fairly new to this site, so I really don't know what's going to face me.
2. Getting my mental health on the right track.
I could do so much more if I wouldn't be as... occupied with uncomfortable thoughts as of right now, such as feeling as if I am not able to do what I want to do because I'll never achieve anything so why even trying... I want to change that, because I'd be more able to do things I want to do; to have more energy for uni because that's what I originally wanted to do. study computer science because it was and probably is still fun to me. finding the motivation I've had a few months ago.
3. With that follows... trying new things; starting a project and hopefully finishing it.
I don't know. I normally don't do these kind of new years resolution things, but I took this small opportunity, even if it is just for me, to write it down.
Here's to... another chaotic year, as always. But better chaos. I don't know... why am I doing this? This page wasn't meant for this or was it? I'm confused now. I'm sorry if this bothered anyone ^^'9
To be locked in a dev-centered paradigm. I want personal projects that earn me money. I want my own business. But, it requires marketing. I have no respect for marketing people. I’m a dev, and that’s a common sentiment among devs. I have to get over it to achieve my goals, but it seems like I’m locked in a dev paradigm. I only see engineering.10
String someStr = "your name";
// but i wanna capitalize it
someStr.capitalize(); // <-- operation has no effect
// ughh, fine 😒
String cappedStr = someStr.capitalise();
// wish I could just do this:
someStr .= capitalize(); // but it throws error 😩16
Need to go old school again, go back to hosting their own servers and peer to peer mesh networks. Eliminate the shackles of big tech... Eliminate the control and power they have over you. The only reason they are used is the idea of simplicity and low entry cost. But you pay for that later, when they deem you to be a competition, or don’t align with their goals.8
When I told my mother I wanted to become a software dev, she went surprised but supported me to reach my goals. That's what family does. I'll always be thankful to her. (My family is quite short actually).
One year later, with my first salary I bought her a brand new iPad. 💕
If you don't have your family support, just do it. Do whatever makes you happy and complete!5
Unemployment week 2
I finalized buying ~1000 square feet ( ~95 square meters ) apartment. Still renting 100 square feet room ( ~10 m2 ) so change will be tremendous. It’s first property I will own. With that amount of free space I think I can start constructing small spaceship or time travel machine.
Typed on linkedin that I’m offline.
Phone is still ringing. Time to turn it off for a while and rethink my life and world around from scratch.
Rest is good for my soul.
Let's set your personal development goals for the quarter
Remember, they have to be free, align entirely with what the company is already doing and require no support from management.
Why do they even bother pretending to care about development?2
Tomorrow there are 100 days left in the year. How will you use them?
I will read 10 pages of "CleanCode" every day.
(Blatently copied this from Reddit, but was hoping for more CS related goals)2
dev goals? get shit done!
I have this common illness among devs:
I start projects and never really finish them.
Hate that. Feels so empty.
So this year I finally want to get shit done.4
How long till I can try again? Please, tell me! I'm dying to know!!
And I never got the verification code either.
I want to be the CTO in ten years. I'm 25 now, and think it's possible. My former boss was the CTO and he inspired the hell out of me to work hard and invest in myself. I have a lot to learn but I'm eager to figure it out.4
Realized i slack too much because of third monitor that i use for "background" youtube,tv shows, movies. Removed it also forced my self to working by just playing music with headphones and dimmed light.
Settings some goals for each day.
And when i feel i got too distracted do 20 pushups.2
I have my personal motivator @YourNemesis to help me through the days when my self-motivation doesn't work at all.
I usually try and identify the reason for low motivation or no motivation at all, then talk myself through it and remind myself of my goals and what I want for myself. My goals motivate me.
I also have different motivational quotes/one liners up on my room's door and my cupboards door. Attaching an image of one such things that I wrote by myself and looking at it works for me on highly unproductive days. Hope this approach helps to some of you guys too on here.3
How did it take me until my mid 20s to realize that I don’t have to pressure myself as much as I do to be successful in my goals?11
The emphasis on "team" to the exclusion of the individual (thanks in no small part to Scrum) is destroying the software developer career. It's a pendulum. There are always team/company goals AND personal goals. However, these days, the rhetoric is ALL about the team: everybody on a team has the same title, get rid of people who don't conform to some "collaborative", "open space", "colocated" ideal, etc. OKRs are entirely about giving everybody the exact same goals. I remember sitting down with managers throughout my career to talk about where I want to be in a year. What skills I wanted to explore. There were no guarantees, but the generally accepted idea was that nurturing the employee helped retain the employee. Now, there is only the idea that every developer should have the same "T-shaped" skillset, that all team members are the same, that all teams are interchangeable, that all developers are nameless cogs. It is demoralizing. If I were to give any advice to those looking to enter the industry as a developer right now, it would be "Don't". Because you will be told that being a "hero" is a bad thing. In what other industry does management tell its producers that they don't want people to go "above and beyond", and that if they do, they won't get credit for it because the credit always belongs to everybody.7
Dev goals for 2018? Oh my..
#1: Never have to post my own question on Stack Overflow.
#2: Stop fixing everyone's computer for free.
#3: Stop coding while intoxicated (at home worry - don't worry ;)
#4: More side projects.
#5: Buy more coffee varieties 😂😂😍
I won a Site of the day award on css winner today. I was happy for a minut and now i feel like shit. Acheving goals makes me feel empty. I hate my brain.5
That feeling when the CEO gives a really positive pep talk about his future plans for the company but, deep inside you know your just caught up in a monkey shit fight that can never achieve the goals he’s laid out.
Me and loneliness have been best friends recently, but I’m not going to let it interfere with my goals in life. I’m going to choose to fight for a better life. Choose to fight for yourself and just know that someone loves you somewhere :)2
New year's goals: actually release a fucking game and maybe finish my book!
Maybe 2018 will be the year I can finnaly call myself a released developer!
A manager in the area, in an effort to “encourage” teams to meet their externally generated commitments before imposing mandatory extended hours, posted a chart showing Mt. Everest with weekly goals as stages up the mountain. First team to the top wins a $20 gift card. Looks just like this picture. Results will probably be similar.4
Just got into a company as a fresher. Have never liked doing frontend (no offence). They are making me do frontend. Now, I'll forever bear the tag of a frontend developer. Can't quit due to money issues. Don't know where life will take me.4
One of my girlfriend's goal is to learn whatever web development languages I know and help me work on projects. I can't express how happy I am, I just hope this doesn't go badly though. :/3
Just picked this up for my goals this year. If I don't like it, I can always sell it off and I don't like having to switch between screens on my laptop for tutorials. Has anyone used How to Learn Python the Hard Way? Did you like it? Hate it?5
Hey friends! Milo here, I sincerely hope all of you are having a tremendous day and or night wherever you may be. This photo i have attached here below is a dream one day i wish to achieve.
A good friend of mine who I personally consider a mentor invited me to check out their workplace which one day i really hope to be able to work in! Such a nice place with a spectacular view! Please pardon the horrible weather on that particular day! :-)
My 2018 goals:
1. Graduate from the Deep Learning Nanodegree.
2. Get better at Python.
3. Learn C++.
4. Learn more about Machine Learning and AI.6
When you're working on something all day and then the senior dev swoops in and answers your question in 5 minutes.
Aim for this year:
Become at least semi-competent with Rust and build at least a crappy little game with it.5
Learn to write code, and make a lot of money, and live a happy life, and hopefully my mom will love me again, and...3
During uni times, I was working part-time in a private security firm. A co-worker, I hadn't known yet, was assigned to a 12 hour night shift with me guarding some secret weapon, which was quite boring.
So we talked about life and other things and found out that we both had great interests in building and using PCs. This has lead to a great friendship and dozens of PC we've built, modded and overclocked together.4
Onto the next interview again.
Last company was such a bad match I hope this one works out better.
Another day of pretending I think a lot about my life goals and aspirations but honestly just wanna secure a bag.
Wish me luck!3
My goals are:
1. Start my new job in Feb.
2. Overcome the challenges I will face in the new environment.
3. Learn, learn, learn
4. Don’t forget to rest.1
Since I already achieved my dream of being employed as a mobile app dev, I'm into creating music now to prove myself I can achieve something with this too. But you know, I'm kinda lost what to do. Like how I was when I started programming 😂
Maybe one day I can combine both skills into something interesting.9

She : Bring the stars for me.
He : Are you mad? How can i even do that? Impossible, ask something else.
She : Stop writing Codes.
He : Ok, How many stars you need?
"Let the design team be the design experts. Your job is to be the business expert. Ask them how their design solutions meet your business goals. If you trust your design team, and they can explain how their recommendations map to those goals, you’re fine. If you neither trust them, nor can they defend their choices it’s time to get a new design team." - Mike Monteiro

Dev goals on the 3rd of January:
- not getting drafted2
1. Port Linux to Brainfuck.
2. Make a some how object oriented Brainfuck fork.
3. Make IDE for #2, with completely random auto completion.1
So my friend works in this big MNC company with good pay. He has had good education and certifications. He runs into a simple issue with someone's github project he forked and calls me for me help to debug the issue. Just helped him figure out the reason for issue over the phone.
And here I am technically "jobless" and loser in my relatives eyes because I'm pursuing self employment with no cool certifications to brag about.
Not sure if I should feel stupid for the choices I made in my life.2
apt-get install life
The following packages will be REMOVED:
destiny, future, goals, mother , father, siblings
FUCK THIS SHIT2
JSON is crap sold through marketing and doesn't live up to it's proclaimed goals:
Docker, kubernetes, ceph, s3, and aws in general. Not really dev per se, but still worthy technical goals.1
I finished a side-project and made a simple C# and WPF program to help you track financial goals. It splits up your paycheck based on what you want (like 10% towards a new car, and $25 towards dinner out).
It has zero netcode and is open-source. There isn't even the most basic
Guess you guys don't care about goals like "losing weight" and that stuff. So my code-related goal is MASTER VUE.JS ONCE AND FOR ALL. Seriously, I need to start using it in production or I will keep wasting my time.2
I Have always wanted to create a game with tons of openness. Kind of a mix between Dishonored, Thief, and We Happy Few. You have an entire active city where people actually have goals and daily jobs and such. It would be cool to have everything time based, so stuff happens even if you're not doing anything, and even be able to live a practically normal life, get a job, make friends. See news happen, and perhaps in the dead of night you turn into an assassin and prevent events from happening that could kill many people. And so on. Just being able to watch the city lively at work and NPCs actually having goals to complete each day, it would be so interesting. I suppose Skyrim is the closest game to my idea as of current3
Finished my first PC build! Feels good to actually finish a new years resolution lol now I just need to finish my sass framework and get through that udemy python course2
I think my ultimate life fantasy is to chew mouthful of m&m's for hours.
It feels kind of extremely selfish and greedy to eat it like that.2
-> Write clean code
-> Never trust the code
-> Never use PHP
-> Stop procastinating
-> Stop ranting3
My Current goals:
1. get new glasses for first time in 4 years
2. get permit then license then get my first car
3. get a new job that doesn't make me wanna kill myself every day and i actually feel like i'm doing something (car opens up distance opportunities)
4. figure out new goals2
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)
Launch my app in Play store
Build more projects
Make work fun for client
Learn learn and learn....
Goals before week 200:
- Release some tracks
- Play a few gigs
- Build python program which I've got in my head for some time now
- Master git workflow
In 2019 I want to get better at PHP & React & stop being afraid to try & fail! I do a lot of front end work, backend still baffles me a lot. Time to get uncomfortable! 👩🏼💻🤓3
I usually avoid procrastination by turning off my phone, not going on social networks or YouTube and by setting some goals to achieve in a day.
Not just dev goals.
-Stable relationship with [Redacted]
-Finish my projects
-Get new SSD
-Finally get paid for the DLR project
-Not fucking up my exams
-Finish my blacksmithing idea/project
-Play a good game that's not Destiny2
-Think positively for once4
I just submitted my professional goals this year.
As I was writing them a lot of them actually sound like things my manager should be doing to increase code quality n agility n reduce the # bugs that end up in prod...
the usual: suffer in the name of curiosity.
all jokes aside, my goal is to finish several projects and take a long-ass break from it all to fix this burnout, and maybe even find a job somewhere in there too? hopefully? stretch goals?
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 administration5
Day 7 of devWholesome...
Happy November guys! It's a new month which means new goals! Set some goals for this month that you want to get done. See how much you get done this month. Mark your calendars for deadlines of things you want to get finished. Don't forget to keep up with the work you already have. Comment below what your goals are this month! And as always make the most of your day!
Saw this wk100 tag all over devrant so here are my goals :
1. Drop my current job with a shitty boss (working with Flash in 2018)
2. Work with one of my teacher
3. Find a girlfriend
4. Riding my bycicle every day
5. Meditate every day6
Recent discussion with ele gave me an idea to post this question here.
Which type of company should a fresh CS graduate work for? A corporate or a startup or a SME.
My advice for newbies is on SME for first few years. Then decide on your own based on your personality and career goals for future years.16
I was propably 15 years old the first time i saw my friend coding html and and other related stuff i cannot remember! It intriqued me and i really wanted to learn it (i wanted to learn to hack.. xD..) but at the given time i wasn't happy in life and i was pretty much addicted to WoW..
So.. forward 12 years, where i had gone to the military, thought about becoming a physiotherapist, psychiatrist, korean translator and game designer.. oh and countless attempts from another friend to get me interested in c#.. i decided to start studying computers (software/hardware) at DTU (danish university).
That was rougly 8-9 months ago and i am now pretty decent in C, HTML, C++, Java, MySQL and koncepts about networks and OOP designs :).
I am super grateful to all the trial and errors throughout my life that have brought me to this place :)
Still 27, still has alot to learn, but i am really happy where i am right now. Even so, that i am spending my free time making my own projects :)
I also get super happy whenever i fix a bug of mine :p.
I truly believe that you will skyrocket to succes if you do what you love.
For me, i just discovered that part of myself a little late :)
Not sure what i hope to achieve with this post, but i hope it can give an insight into what people go through and yeah.. go for what you want!
Have a great time everyone!
And first !rant on this app!
I love all your rants! vs !rants4
I've been CRUSHING it lately, so stoked!!!
**Also, this means that in the near future something will crush me because I have a few subjects on deck I need to lock down.
2. TypeScript(deep dive)
3. CPP (currently 75% done with my 2nd masterclass, first one complete)
4. Multi-platform local device storage (Sqflite/mongoDB/shared preferences/Hive)
5. REST/api/requests/json management && application
6. Implementing Firebase authentication using Apple, Twitter, and mobile OTP
7. Cloud functions && server scripting/automation
8. Intro to embedded systems/OS/kernels
9. Steadily improve my code style, design strategies, and build patterns that are team friendly && provide easier code base maintainibilty
10. Influence, teach, and/or spark the interest of someone new to development in any possible- all that matters is getting new people on board, making sure they are stoked about, and last but not least making sure they feel welcome in the community and are able to start off in the right direction.
cheers, ya fockers!!!!
Biggest dev ambition? I've got a couple.
For my career, becoming the "go-to-guy" or even lead architect at an ambitious and professional software company. For my free time, releasing one or more apps that people find useful. Also releasing and maintaining a piece of open source software that devs find useful and see potential in. Inspiring others in general.
Those are some goals I've had from the very beginning.2
Work hard at improving my skills in embedded software and electrical engineering for sure!
Since it caught my interest half a year ago, I've read several books and articles on the topic, but never got to get my hands on the actual thing.
This will definitely be the year where I'll go nuts and learn all I can to prepare for my next internship, which I really want to be related to embedded software!
"I would say my biggest pet peeve related to the industry would be people focusing on technology instead of design, standards instead of users, and validation rather than innovation. Web standards and best practices are noble goals, but all too often in our community people forget they are a means to an end, not the end itself." - Jeff Croft
As a tech lead i sometimes find it very hard to defend developers for no fault of theirs.
Management is completely incapable of noticing hard data like git logs or action items updated on an excel and seems to have an idea that the devs are incompetent , but the ba that sets impossible goals and crap business documentation is competent.
Should i just let the project and juniors burn.3
One of my very first PR's didn't even get a comment and I worked hard on it...
Feels bad man, all I need is some kind of yes, thanks for this, or no, this doesn't fit the project goals.
After patiently waiting, went ahead and created my own gem! No response sucks.
Why does this happen?1
Just updated the app to use the avatar builder, now I have a goal in life, get enough upvotes so I can get my avatar some slippers, I love coding in slippers or bare feet
The sheer amount of information to be gained in this field, and in my case specifically at my job, is mind boggling. Maybe it's just the week of fatigue talking here but I feel I'm way in over my head. Learning business, teamwork, development strategies, progress tracking, the code base itself, how different teams work together, how different sectors work together, overarching goals, individual goals, and then going home and having a social life, good nights rest, and somehow exercise in there?
It's certainly overwhelming. I know being new makes it seem worse than it likely is but I don't see how people even manage to amass so much knowledge in such a short amount of time. It's honestly so exhausting to keep track of everything and try not to make mistakes that it's nauseating. I'm still gonna try but good lord does it feel impossible.
Me vs Myself
I lack of consistency in my life.
Except job, I work on single project for more then four years now.
Besides that I struggle so much to finish things I started or do one thing everyday or even every week for more then one month.
Trying to improve myself but it’s so hard and I don’t know when and how I lost this whole consistency I had that made me good self thought developer. Some people said best they’ve seen but I think I have a lot to learn.
It’s not that I don’t want to continue doing things I started previous day but my narrative self is harassing me so much that I don’t have vital power left.
Whenever I try to fight back it makes me weak and I can’t get up from bed so I lay and wait.
Sometimes I lay whole day and just wait.
When I do nothing my narrative inner voice find me instantly 100 other interesting things to do that make me excited, like:
- let’s check mail - oh new <picks technology> framework let’s try it,
- let’s check news
- let’s see how much <picks something> cost because you want it, buy this thing or you’re gonna die
- go out with this <picks a girl> or you’re gonna die alone
- hey <picks something> is cool let’s see how it works
- hey this <picks some problem> is cooler then the one you’re working on,
- how about to call <picks someone>
- how about go out it’s nice outside
- let’s cook this thing today you need to go to grocery
I don’t know how I figured out I need do nothing and wait to fight myself and do what I started not what my narrative voice want me but I see whole slightly improving now and doing nothing helps a lot.
It makes me focus on things I really want to do not things that are just waste of time.
Anyway thanks if anyone got to the end of this stupid story.
Have a nice day. Keep dreaming.
I took a break from the chaos of programming and took the time to set some clear goals to realign myself.
It was refreshing, but I’m excited to be back :)
Here are my goals
-Don’t wait until last moment to resolve issues
-Be a good developer and training interns so that they will have something to take away
-Learn more stuff
That's like saying if there's a soccer (or football for non-Americans) game that's 3-2, then there's 6 goals scored. Step up your math google.16
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
Disconnecting with people around me with headphones and songs.. Turning off all chatting and notifications medium including Skype and Slack. Turn off mobile network and profile. In short, disconnecting from world helps me focus on goals more.1
Long time reader, first time poster 🙊
2020: I'll complete semesters 2, 3 & 4 out of 6 for my part time MSc computer science while maintaining my current development job.
Good luck in your own goals everyone!1
My Dev goals for 2018:
- build a raycaster in OpenGL and Vulken
- finish my game
- actually write a Dev blog2
Complete my Clojure POC and do a knowledge sharing session in work on Functional Programming. Also get promoted to Senior Software Engineer.
To be out of this miserable shitty rut I'm in and build a stable life (I've just decided I'm definitely going to try and do this, I've had enough of this shit)
Tomorrow is the first day in my new company. Working as a developer. It's the 3th and biggest company I'm working in since finishing university and it feels so good. Especially because this job now is in one of the biggest cities of our state.1
What do you think about this assertion: 'When I’m on my deathbed, I won’t look back at my life and wish I had worked harder. I’ll look back and wish I spent more time with the people I loved' ?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...
Hey I have a career dilemma, was wondering if anyone experienced that and if anyone could give a tip on how to resolve it maybe.
TL;DR: I'm a Front End dev, who wants to become an expert in everything but obviously can't. What do I do? How do I choose what to learn?
Longer version. I started with Front End. Now i'm doing alright with Vue, React, bit of Angular, and other related to the stack tech. Then I started learning python because of a project I was doing (personal client). Didn't go far with this one. I still find it interesting esp. in the machine learning context, which I also want to do. Now I'm studying .NET, because of a project I'm currently doing at a company (full time, I'm doing ReactJS front end there tho). And I'm also studying for GCP exam, because I wanna know how to deploy solutions to the cloud. But one also needs to secure them, so I'm looking at some courses on Cybrary, in a search for appropriate courses.
I feel overwhelmed and unproductive. I feel like i need to specialize just in one field with some general knowledge about other areas. So I feel like I have to select what I do/learn carefully.
Any thoughts? How did you plan your career? What kind of goals did and do you set for yourself? Are you happy with those now once you achieve them?
I'd love to hear some stories. :)6
When you impress your peers because you have grown in a year as a programmer. Still there is a long way to go but I feel very confident I can achieve my goals. Any tips for project management and how to grow soft skills. I lack in that area.3
I'll miss all the student discounts and awesome software I can use for free.
I should just finish all my tech life goals in the next 6 months including <err: std:out_of_range> and become a carpenter afterwards.
* Publish blog update that's been sitting idle locally since months
* Donate 50$ to open-source initiatives (favs are VLC, Linux Mint)
* Contribute meaningfully to relaunch metalsmith static site generator dev
* side projects (TBD)
- Finish a few public projects.
- Finish creating my iOS development company.
- Master a few primary languages instead of having simple knowledge on a bunch.
- Resist the urge to tell my boss to fucking die. (He’s nice, but retarded.)
- Survive life
- Start selling my old projects and earning some money.
- Earn some money.
Just some of the goals I have.
Goals for 2018
- Add E2E test or unit tests to my projects
- learn a new (programming language) perhaps Go, or Rust
Better have a few than too many2
Goals builder that follows SMART method for goals. What was originally intended as "rough draft" became a full blown SPA in less than 2 weeks. It's the ones you don't expect to go far that usually go the furthest. First "draft" took less two hours to build from scratch.. 😃
I have 3 goals this year.
Maintain at least 1 new long term friendship
Be more responsible
I have way more smaller things I want to do but these are the end goals. Each entail their own struggles but I know I can do it.
Keep me responsible fam
Projects are like progress bars, they are really quick at 80-99% and then it takes a while until they have finished. The reason is the same, nobody thought about milestones and goals.1
When the project manager complained about how you are late for the deadline, but the keep on adding on new requirements unrelated to the initial goal. OTL
What do you want to achieve in the next 12 months and the company will try to help you achieve that?
You are already helping, I am looking at getting popular on devrant.2
A game taking place inside an operating system. Like Tron but needs to have much more solid analogies. User's body as tty process. Some representation of scheduler priority and memory allocation. Forking. Children and zombies. Init.
Some process-ownable token representing file handles.
Network ports as portals through which data may be sent by acquiring a file handle and using it.
/proc, /mem, etc are extreme stretch goals.
Never really started because I couldn't decide how to represent all the different parts so they would all be consistent *and* entertaining
As an extension of the extreme stretch goals, a multiplayer functionality where players can shell into each other's game worlds ("computers")
Happy holidays to y'all.
Do you have any goals for 2020? Not necessarily new years resolutions.
My goals are:
* Pass math exams
* Master Rust
* Get back to the gym.5
finally done with my goals for today and i tried testing it out on google chrome and it worked nice, and then i tried it to other browsers.......
i'm just going to sleep for tonight and just do it tomorrow
time check: 4:31 AM here in the Philippines2
my primary goals are:
Continue to learn and improve my developer skills.
Learn and be better at system analysis (through dealing with customers) and system designTo move towards a team lead position.
Learn project management
Learning about the company to find where I can make a contribution from a business perspective rather than just an IT perspective
Why is it that whenever I have a goal, everybody comes out of the woodwork to tell me I'm stupid and am not capable of achieving it, but whenever I do achieve something on my own they expect thanks and recognition for all the "support and guidance" they gave along the way?
Surely this can't be just me experiencing this?2
My goals before we reach wk200...
-continue/finish my education
-move together with my girlfriend
-get a decent work if I already finished my education3
Dev goals for 2022? Best and worst DX in the past?
Wish to prioritize customers with useful business goals who are open to sustainable web dev, usability and accessibility.
Want to use even more CSS and find a way to use new features like parent selectors without sacrificing compatibility.
Continue learning and using Symfony, but also continue with my full-stack side project using JS or even better TypeScript for the backend also for the backend.
Best developer experience: getting new customers for my own business after leaving a company last winter.
Worst developer experiences:
Corporate customers with large budgets and design agencies seem to fancy all the antipatterns I thought bad and obsolete, like carousel content, animations everywhere, and autoplay videos on the home page. Poorly written, poorly thought, and sometimes contradictory, requirements. Customers and agencies changing their mind halfway through a project.
"Agile" daily meetings, not giving devops necessary repository permissions, and making Webpack mandatory for no real reason.2
I waste a lot of my time simply doing nothing I want to work on my goals but I can`t.
Any suggestions about How to start focusing on the work?5
Get my linux box to show different tty's on different monitors. (Or maybe just tmux? Split?)
Regardless, I think I'll marry her.
I just wanna find a job that I enjoy and that pays decent...
Short term goals are getting promoted at my current job..2
Actually get out of my shit job, and move into IT.
Also fix my left constantly dislocating shoulder before I lose it.
And the obvious, learn more ...1
Why is it that people start to care about quarterly objective key results only at the end of a quarter?
You know, those stretch goals decides by management grounded on wishful thinking rather than realistic planning.
I should plan my vacation on the last weeks of the quarters.
I don't know about you, but I keep trying to push myself into learning new stuff and studying the hardest jobs to do in IT, but I currently work as web developer and find myself loving what I do...
So I was thinking for a moment: why keep trying to have a great carrier and earning lots of money, having a nice car and a hot tub? Why not just working in a small company or as a freelance and do what I really enjoy without the headache?
But then I fear that I would depress because I would never know my limits, what I could do with my life... I fear that I would regret not having reached the top. Not the top of the world, but the top of myself.... Because if you know what you CAN'T do, then you can rest with a smile on your face.
Don't you think the?
Sorry for the long post, I'm high as fuck!4
Afraid of setting a new goal because as soon as I do I probably wont work towards it. I have this rebellious habit of not doing what I set out to some times. It really stunts my progress and is just flat out irritating.5
Corporate culture in a nutshell: these are the team goals, work on your tasks and switch your brain off.
- Stop procrastinate;
- Start a open-source project;
- Go deep in math and logic;
- Perfect my English;
- Learn some soft skills;
- Get a hobby outside dev;
- Get some exercises;
It's all I can think of now, but I have so much more goals for this year that I will be very busy, and in the end of the day it will all come together.2
describe logic/algorithm you would use to detect a (presence of) full name in a string. goals: obvious == Most reliable, hardest to fool, least false positives, as generic as possible ( == as few hardcoded data as possible)12
When you have been away from coding for few years and then realise the next level position you want to go for requires coding expertise. :(1
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.
How many started of development as a hobby and will to create something awesome and then got soaked into is so much that at a later stage in life you are really not left with any option because you invested all your time and health into sitting front of computers ? This is serious question and it would be great if someone experienced, like who is in their late twenties or thirties answer it !7
Goals for 2022:
- Keep studying my new book (concrete mathematics)
- keep solving hacker rank problems
- Interview at amazon.com again (I was so close to get it) and feel the pleasure of reject them
- Stop skipping gym days
- Making friends in NY4
I have a whole bag of pills to eat that make me sicker instead of better while I have a lot of studying and writing to do. Doc says I have to be diligent with pills but like...what of my goals? I'll also not get better if I don't eat the pills. What a conundrum.7
My dev goals:
Finish my current project
Write a small App in about a month
Start a project with my friend
Start Game Developement
Also non dev related:
Overcome some of my social fears so I can live and style myself the way I want
This might seem like a déjà vue but is there any tools/services or even infographics that helps in choosing a library/framework depending on the requirements/goals of a project ? (This is mainly for JS but, I'm open to any computer languages)2
In my Java project, I added a wiremock rule to a few tests. Now my Jacoco code coverage in sonar dropped to 0%. 😩 Maven is running the goals, bit not creating the jacoco.exec file.
That's one of the worst things in Java. Once you understood the concept of immutables, the build tools start to annoy you.2
Q. What's the greatest number of rebuilds / redesigns for a full system that you've done?
It still sticks in my head that in one job we went through five specs, and the system still didn't do what the business owner wanted! I think the goals posts must have had wheels!
"Good design must be defined by appropriateness to audience and goals, and by its effectiveness, not by its adherence to Swiss design or the number of awards it wins." - Drew Davies
Same as every year, attempt to take over the world!
Honestly tho, I don't put goals for myself as I never reach em.
Just going with the flow, not giving too much a damn about anything and seeing what comes ;)
SELECT true AS "Go to gym?"
(SELECT WAIST_SIZE_INCHES FROM ME.BODY) > 32
(SELECT 1 FROM ME.DESIRE UNION ALL
SELECT 1 FROM ME.TRANSPORTATION UNION ALL
AND NOT EXISTS
(SELECT 1 FROM ME.SCHEDULING_CONFLICTS UNION ALL
SELECT 1 FROM ME.SICK UNION ALL
SELECT 1 FROM WORK.PRODUCTION_OUTAGE UNION ALL
SELECT 1 FROM WIFE.DATE_NIGHT
Consistently evaluating myself. Assessing where and what I lack and writing goals to work on. Not being comfortable for so long. Doing interviews help in the skill assessment.
Goals for 2019:
-Try not to get fired for writing trash code
-Get a new job (maybe :/)
-Work on my own project that hopefully takes off
I try to wake up early, do some productive things, try my hands on different stuffs in life, learn a new skill, switch to a new career field, become famous and change the world... but these damned bug fixes make me stay up at nights and so goes the cycle of my life.😑
So we have this year end goals thing at work and the managers pick the goals for us, we dont get to do it
My manager picks for me security topic, the items in that are as follows:- have training sessions, define web security standards, Ensure team follow standards, Identify issues with current implementations
I am damn developer, that's another fucking job!!!4
My goals for this year are
1. Dont be lazy
2. Be productive, start some programming dude!
3. Get a life.
I just got the best pe of my carrier.. Got some extra cash, and new future career path goals..
sometimes it’s hard being in this industry, but when you find a great team, you’ll know by the support
🍻 happy Friday!
Goals for 2019:
Finally get my CS degree.
Find a job.
Complete at least one of my side projects.
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.
My planned big purchases for this year:
- Gopro Hero 5 or 7
- Play station or Xbox, can't be bothered to buy and maintain a PC for gaming or have time to cry over the forced Windows 10 updates.
- Bike jackets
Now gotta work harder to afford them.4
Yesterday our company CEO gave a presentation on the plan for our company's growth.
Let's just say that I'm not too sure that the goals he's set might not be met because I know the way we work.
But if those goals are met, it'll be a huge hit. Provided all the stars align and the PMs decide to do things right for once.
Can't decide what to do in terms of asking for those better projects that have been mentioned or just lay low and stay sad because the work that I'm getting sucks (no actual development just site support for the past 6 months).2
Started with the old computer craft mod for Minecraft that put Lua into a form I could understand with clear goals (I was 12 or 13 at the time), and from there learned Java and some web dev tools. Now I'm here writing simple compilers to procrastinate uni work
So I’ve been putting some thought into this for a week now and this is what I’ve come up with for my dev goals.
- Finish learning C
- Learn GoLang
- Learn ASP.NET
- Get better at focusing
- Build more confidence in my skills
- Complete more projects
I have separate reasons for ASP.NET and GoLang. This year I did pretty good at completing my dev goals if I counted right I completed 6/10 of my goals and I’m proud of that, so I believe in myself to be able to complete these goals.2
How you achieve your goals. I have started several projects throughout my life and, at a certain point, I change the direction. Now I wonder if it had been more consistent, perhaps it would have been more successful. What do you think about being consistent or changing direction when faced with difficult circumstances?2
I have this weird feeling that i want to increment peoples rants/comments till they are even with the current ammount of increments they have, but thats a infinate problem i will have to personally deal with because that will never happen.
Definitely my current manager. He is very supportive of our career goals and has us choose both goals related to team performance and personal progression. He supports us having time at the end of the sprint to innovate and research things to bring back into the product. He gives constructive feedback and doesnt breathe down peoples necks.
"[...] Good Programming is a few brief moments of sublime elegance embedded in months of niggling, exacting, precise trivialities. [...]"
Finishing this app we are developing and fixing all the technical debt from my first years in the company.
Wish me luck. 🤞1
Get back into regularly maintaining OS projects I used to actively maintain.
And resume the daily Disc Golf Strong exercises/stretches.
For the employee goals evaluation, my manager suggested to word "the higher-ups difficult to deal with on the other parts of the world" as "handling complex and challenging situations due to time zone differences"1
Next year goals:
1. Learn how to use Macintosh.
2. Learn better Linux.
3. Finish an android app that I am too bored to finish.
4. Evolve social skills for Humans.

"this coming year my goal is to fill up all the holes.."
And all I could think was, what, a coincidence, thats my goal too!
What are your main goals or aims for this year?6
Im dev in a huge company.
I take a 3 days training about the company purposes and goals.
As dev I dont give shit about company aims couse company is borring and there are like 100 levels between them and my real work.
2019 Recap: Quit studentjob. Got engineering degree, worked as a devops consultant, got a child, bought a house, started at new company as mainframe developer.
2020 goals: less cobol, more java, get courses for a long term goal of becoming an it-architect.2
Dev goals: building and deploying four apps (kotlin, flutter, unity) ; getting better at tdd; deeper understanding of core compsci principals ; mentorship; teaching; reading through at least one software practices book a month ; attending at least one local tech event monthly ;and prepping for finally getting out and speaking at conferences in 2021.
My goals this year:
1. Getting certified for Spring core
2. Getting certified for Java OCP 8
3. Write my first blog about “something interesting”
4. Update my personal website
5. Getting a drivers license
So if someone has some ideas/tips that would be great.1
I want to build an ECS-based web metaframework and CMS. Is this a new idea? If not, what are some existing implementations? I have very particular goals and constraints so I'm making it anyway but I was wondering if there's prior art to learn from.3
While learning some new tool/technology never just go and start looking at the handbooks and/or tutorials. Always set small goals for yourself first or ask someone proficient in that tool/technology set these goals for you so you can follow along and make real progress while learning.
Goals, eh? Lemme see...
- Graduate so I can get that raise I was promised.
- Finally get started on some side projects and/or have the time to contribute to some projects, OSS or not.
- Learn Haskell and Kotlin properly
- General improvement (learn, learn and learn)10
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 very simple to get PMs to leave you alone; have a good long talk with them about their goals, motivations, and methods. Try to understand their thinking, then preempt the visit to your desk with something to make them not come to your desk.

Why do they demand 12-month goals when we use Agile Methodologies?
If we do it right, we don't know what we are working on next sprint, let alone 12 months.
Our goals are to work on the highest priority stories. We are not to work on stuff "in the background", so how can we have any long-term goals?
The only things we can plan are outside of our actual jobs (like conferences, training, pilot programs/hackathon projects, etc.) So the only things we can review at the end of the year are not the most important things we do.
Poor managers love numbers and checklists to hide behind.2
Too early in the year for goals so far, but I'll give it a shot. Here's what I'm gunning for in the short-term:
Week 85 - 2018 Dev/Coding Goals:
- Continue educating myself in the Rust programming language (I feel like I dropped the ball there last year, Rust is easy to get programmer's block because it's syntax isn't always clear what should be done with it and/or why, the references. Ugghh fml).
- Get feature parity of PYXReloaded with it's predecessor, and get most of the planned features implemented. Friends of mine really want this and like screencaps I've sent already. It's a project I've been working on with @Gianlu for the past few days.
Week 85 - 2018 General/Personal Goals:
- Get over my motivational issues.
- Get over my depression/loneliness
- Get over my social anxiety.
I'm trying to better myself, both in coding and personal life. I fucking love this community. I used to use Reddit to find posts exactly like the ones here, but this is wayyy better and has everything all in one place.
Have a prosperous 2018, guys. Remember not to look at what you want to get done in just 365 days. You need to see the big picture.
Goals, "debug all test issues in time"
WTF, when I started this recently there were close to 200 issues because this was never tested, I've got it down to a little over a hundred, define "all" and "in time".
Not sure if I should say something or just let the numbers speak whenever wishful thinking meets reality.
Maybe I'm just very touchy.1
In which conditions you will join a startup ?
Is it based on experience it will give or the manager goals and background or on the project they are planning to do.
Share with me what are the criterias you may accept to join a startup1
Help needed: what type of goals you'd set for the upcoming perf review when you're less than a few months in a company?1
Its so nice to encourage you all to grander things and provide the means by which you can achieve all your goals with ease.
I'm one of many brainless zombie twats that does what I'm told when someone stoops enough to tell me to do what any decent human being should and puts up with my worthless ass. :)5
