Love working with atom using this theme in coffeeshops, making people think I'm a top hacker, when in reality I'm just stuck with css classes or something. Equally stupid.26
I'm new, so I'm unaware of the rules. I'll simply assume I'm allowed to post this, if there are any moderators, please tell me if this simply shouldn't be here.
I came from Sololearn, and someone told me to download devRant. I love it.
I was the most active participant in the Sololearn Q&A, answering questions and replying to comments quicker than you can close the app.
Everyone knows me and enjoys having me there, but something happened. Some idiotic troll kept harassing and trolling others including myself. The mods banned him but he returned and was targeting me.
He made over 50 accounts and never replied to a comment with the same account. He sent threats and continued polluting Sololearn.
The mods had a theory is was me and banned my account. I'm heartbroken, furious, upset, and empty without my SL account. My codes are gone, my comments, answers, and replied are gone. Everything is gone.
They think I ruined SL with a false account and I'm trying to clear my name. I'm innocent.
That's when I discovered this app. In SL I loved the community and the Q&A and everything. I loved helping out but now I can't. People are even making posts asking me to return, but the mods removed them.
I hope the community here treats me well, and I hope this will replace SL. So far, I haven't felt the same way as I did with SL, but I'll try to love it just as much.191
Drug dealer : yo, you code right?
Me: yeah, why
Drug dealer: can you hack into the police station.. You know, see if they are checking me out.. If they know I'm dealing.. I'll just move
(I've never hacked but I know i could learn if I have to)
Me:... That's actually brilliant
I love in a small town at the moment.. I bet the police security is a joke
Kinda high risk though29
Today was Mother's Day. Everybody was posting their photos with their mothers, so I had to stay away from social networks for today to not feel sad.
It's been almost a year without mine, really miss her.
I love her, and I never showed her how much. I've not been the best son a mother could have, I'm so sorry for that. She thought me how to be strong, she was the strongest, but I'm feeling so weak now without her.
Please never miss a chance to let your mother know how much you love her, give her a hug whenever you can, talk to her every time you need somebody to talk to, listen to her stories from when she was your age. She's the most precious person you'll ever have in your life. I realized that when it was too late, don't make my mistake.
I miss you mum ❤8
My wife was going to school for a business degree but likes what I do as an engineer. She spent a month or so debating engineering or information security.
Yesterday she changed to a degree in information security.
Today she opens a GitHub and starts learning to program and I'm in love all over again.7
"Hi! I love your work on github! I'm planning a cryptocurrency exchange and am currently looking for a developer to work with. Would you be interested in working with me and if so, how much would it cost?"
>His face when he sees my hourly rate7
Tutanota (encrypted email service) has a newly designed interface.
I usually don't give a crap about design.
It's so beautiful 😍
I think I'm in love 😱48
Hi everyone, I'm new here but I liked the posts so I thought I'd chip in. Here's a picture of my home office.
I'm currently brushing up on SQL and Java in my internship while I await graduation at the end of the year. Java>C# IMO. C++ is my first love but nobody wants to hire for it anymore.
To everyone who's worked in Java, Eclipse or Intellij IDEA and why? (I mostly use Eclipse because the internship requires it).
I hope to have fun here, so please give me a warm welcome or a rant.24
Working on the notes service and I'm still at the signup/login/password reset part.
Spending hours on thinking the process through, trying to think of any possible weaknesses in the system and writing patches right away.
I find it funny how thinking through every step (code-wise and user-wise) gives a very broad overview of how secure/insecure this thing is.
I fucking love doing this.40
It's raining. I love it.
It's foggy. I love it.
But I live in a desert and nobody here seems to know how to handle the rain, let alone the fog. (It isn't hard, people!) Last night during my ~30 min drive home from work, five separate accidents/collisions happened just a little ways behind me because it was raining. Now it's foggy, too.
I have to go to work.
I'm a huge fan of the imagecreatefromstring function in PHP. I love how it can just take any image format as a string and turn it into an image!
I'm kind of in love with Flutter. This is not Gmail, this is an UI I built with it in just a couple of hours to mimic that of Gmail, my friends are already using it for pranks 😅16
I'M NOT HELPDESK. I CAN'T FIX YOUR BROWSER OPTIONS. I LOVE YOU TO FUCKING PIECES BECAUSE YOU STOP THE INCREDIBLY FUCKING STUPID CALLS, BUT I CAN'T HELP YOU and now I feel like a prick. Call your boss and make him do his fucking job. Please. I don't want to scream at you. I need you in my life...14
Docker. I absolutely love containerising stuff, as it makes everything 200x easier to handle, and its development is also great. I'm completely in awe of it, and the only thing I'm unhappy with is how it doesn't detect the system arch and use a specific image for that (*cough* ARM64 server here *cough*)2
Pushed my first own open source project to Pypi as a python package.
Used tox and travis for the first time.
Feeling proud and super content 😊.
I'm in the process of creating another open source package, which has as dependency the first one 😅.
I love Python.6
I'm from the UK. My CS teacher took a dislike to me in junior high school, dissuading me from taking the classes I needed to take computer science at college. I ended up starting an economics major and then dropping out.
With the support of my family and friends I started over as a self taught as a developer.
I'm now a Tech Director in New York and love my job.5
Is it just me? I hate feeling like I'm too old (35) to begin a tech career. I love programming, but get the sense that I missed the boat on learning enough to be a "successful" programmer. I'm crazy to think everyone getting hired in this field is younger, right?18
I'm tired of all the awesome services that I'd love to use being centralized over Node and JS. I don't want to use your stupid fucking language. Who does?
Also what happened to that dart thing that was supposed to replace JS?12
Past: Used to run Ubuntu in VMWare
Then, I fell in love with it ❤️
Even now I'm using VMWare, but to run Windows (for photoshop) on Ubuntu 😂5
So guys and gurls...
I'm a member of devRant for about 1.5 weeks now. I already have over 130 likes on my rants in total about things I was never able to post without being labeled a nerd. I literally love you guys! Thanks to @dfox and @trogus for making it possible for us to discuss things that matter for us!7
Hoooly shit, I'm starting to love my university.
Yesterday or so, they offered me a 1TB lifetime Google Drive account.
Today they offered me a Microsoft Imagine account where I'm able to get any Microsoft license I want for free for 5 years!
(In Portugal! WTF!)
Win10, Office 2016, VSEnterprise or community 2017, SQL Server 2017, Azure!!!, etc!
I'm sorry to all the Linux people, I'm a Microsoft guy...26
last semester i was working as assistant professor teaching Basic OOP Subject. and my girl happens to be enlisted as my student. One day she was late for my class and get in without a permission. so i ask her
Me : Why don't you knock the door?
Her : Why should i ?
Me : did i give you my permission ?
Her : Public class doesn't need permission. our class is not Private.
oh my god i'm so in love with her2
Holy Fuck I love Go language!
As I mentioned in a previous rant I wanted to start a little CLI app to manage my favourite commands and decided to get started with Go, because I haven't learnt a language in a while and I don't know, let's learn cool stuff, you know?
Holy shit, it's painful but so satisfying to learn! I'm googling every line of code I'm writing but idk if it's the feeling of learning new stuff or the language itself, but my dev motivation rised a hella lot :D
Will make the repo public once I'm done, You'll let me know what I can do better then :)18
After 10 years of development, and 7 years of being happily married, I'm in love again... With Unit Testing.
From this rant: https://devrant.com/rants/1842092/...
For the one piece lovers put there. My buddy made the ship and although i'm not good at watching anime i appreciate the work he puts in. I'm just here sharing hes work, maybe its for you and maybe it isn't but as a person i would like to live in a world where everyone got to achieve some success doing something they love.
The work of him (PS, hes a writer too)
Have a good day all7
I've been trying VS Code for a couple weeks now.
I love it. It's the first Microsoft product I can say that I actually really enjoy using in a very long time.
It's also the first MS product I've used that doesn't think it's smarter than me. I'm looking at you Excel.4
How the fuck have I not been using GO!
What bullshit wizardry is this!!!
I think I'm in fucking love!!
Sorry php, it's been a long long relationship, but I think I have a crush on this hamster. 🥰18
I think I'm falling in love. With TDD.
I used to be very skeptic about it. You know, the usual reasons: it takes longer to deliver, constant "flow" interruptions, etc, etc. But ever since I've tried it I'm nothing but happy about my choice :)
I'm moving forward, I'm not making any regressions, I'm no longer afraid to make any changes in my code as I know tests will show what exactly I break,.. And most importanty, I have all use-cases with corner-cases defined and "explained" in the code... No more do I have to search in Confluence for how this exact scenario should behave. Everything is here. Everything's in the tests.
Yeah, it DOES take longer to deliver so if you're hardcore Agile living by "Ship it as soon as it compiles" TDD might be too slow. But if you prefer knowing when your code is covering all the use cases w/o any errors -- TDD is the way.12
Reading books, lots of books... Mostly sci-fi or fantasy (I'm in love with Lem) but generally any type of books. 🙃 Currently on the table:
Lem: Master's Voice
James S.A. Corey: Leviathan Wakes14
Just came home from the cinema in zurich switzerland where Samsung installed the largest 4K LED TV. Yes that's not a textile canvas in the picture, it's a wall of led tiles called Samsung ONYX. It's a real pleasure to look at. High contrasts and brilliant color. I'm in love 😍
Samsung Debuts World's First 3D Cinema LED Screen Theater in ...16
Just discovered this App, created my account to say Hello and create my first rant. I'm already in love!
To my Person:
THX for 500++ !!! I'm so happy I found devRant by exident. I love reading rants and sometimes post my own stories.
PS: Now I can wear my JS Shirt and drink Red bull like in rl 😂 Thx again!25
This gem of a game. Partly cause i'm a contributor, partly cause i'm a space junkie.
Is this advertising? maybe.
Am i in love? definitely.7
!rant && <3
Dudes! I've been enjoying your rants for a while now, lurking in shadows., I've been relating to your stories especially on domestics fligjts, during commutes or when I'm just fucking bored, even over Netflix. Please show me some love so I'm able to show my face as an avatar :)6
Not a rant, just a tought:
I was thinking, how amazing is to work at software industry, I mean, is there any other field of work where you can start without knowing little to nothing of the thing you are going to work with?
Got hired to work with a friend of mine in his uncle's company, started as a technician, providing support to clients, after that, started coding little windows applications using c#, even tought, I didn't know shit about it, time passed and we needed a mobile application, then when I realized I was already coding for Android in Java even though I didn't know nothing about it too.
It's just, you can do whatever you want if you will... It's amazing! I love doing what I do.
For any keyboard lover like me: this little guys are the most valuable things in my setup. Ortholinear keyboards from http://olkb.com I can't recommend them enough. They are fully programmable and comes in kits for you to finish mounting. The red one is a planck and the other is a preonic.
I'm using dsa keycaps from pimpmykeyboard and the switches are gateron blues.
They just opened a new massdrop for the planck, these are already assembled and ready for use. Check it out at https://massdrop.com/buy/...
P.S.: I have nothing to do with the project and I'm not getting paid to post this. Just love them and want to spread the word. Hope someone love them as much as I do.15
Forgot to push to stable branch before I left from work. Nightly build takes 5 hours so I needed to do that in order to get nightly in the morning. As I'm moving I have only cellphone with 16k internet at home. Sounded like I'm screwed. But luckily fetching few new commits and pushing them back to correct branch git managed even over this parody of internet connection. Love git, I'm saved. Whole repo has few hundred megs, if I had to download everything it would be faster to wait to get real internet connection in few days.1
recently people have been worried about what people were going to say I.e "no hate" , don't hold back!
In devrant we only mean light hearted banter if we are pissed we don't want to hurt you we are pissed at a thing and not directly at you. Not that I speak for dfox or trogus but I'm sure that's what they are going for, and it's what ive seen!
We are nice here... This isn't YouTube , it's a credit to devs we are nice people. Hell it isn't stack overflow!
Also I'm brutally honest at times but I love you really.10
All the time while I'm programming I hate Java.... Don't hate me now :D I'm learning Java in high school. I very love very fast programming languages such as C and C++, so this is why I don't like Java, but there are some reasons why I like Java. I just started learning how to create own window. What the hack is this? This is so simple. I tried to create window in C/C++ with OpenGL, just blank window with color. Complicated..... But with java it's fairy tale.
You can add me now to Java familly, but remember I also love C++.
So here your are, Hello World Java FX app :D
Create window application similar scratch.17
I feel like I'm in an abusive relationship with Ubuntu.
I love it but whenever I'm with it it screws up my environment and doesn't work when I need it to.
I go back to Windows reluctantly and get everything set up and stable. I'm happy, but not excited about it. And then, within a few months, I get that thought. Maybe if I put enough work in I can make Ubuntu work for me as my main environment.24
after hours of trying to get the wifi working... Manjaro KDE is functional... and it's beautiful
Look at the blurred background behind the terminal! Magic!
Everything's so snappy... and the dark theme... I'm in love.4
When I'm in my "zone" working please for the love of god don't stand behind me staring at me and my screen, every time you do that you make me feel that my privacy is being raped and I can't do anything about it !!2
So I haven't touched code in 2 days now.
Main reason is elite dangerous.
I bought it for 5$ and I knew I would love it from trailer and from videos but man I didn't know shit about it.
So you start up and you don't even know how to control the ship so you launch tutorials which takes about 1 day to complete them.
Now you are ready.
But damn is the game hard and just awesome.
I love no mans sky but damn this is next level stuff.
I'm in love with this game.
I can fucking bounty hunt other real people to make living in the game.
How fucking crazy is that ?
You want to destroy somebody ?
Go ahead but expect 20 people trying to kill you after that.
Don't like shooting ?
Go do mining.
Don't like that too ? (You are crazy)
Go trading some shit.
This is just one fucking glorious game !!!15
People telling me what to do. I am 19 yo. I havent got into university, i have passed the bachelor's degree exam with 83.5% in computer science, i am employed in web development and i like it. Im not even thinking about going to university for now, not even getting a driving license, the stress is too big for now. I love traveling by bike. I enjoy listening to heavy metal and hard rock and I love peace more and i enjoy talking with people.
The biggest hurdle is people who tell me "do that because everyone does". And I'm not talking about my mom. She supported me everytime. I'm talking about people who doesn't belive in someone's knowledge and bothers the others. It's good if you give me advice and talk with me about it, but never be strict about that advice.6
Omfg, after webdeving for so long, I recently started to learn python and image manipulation.
I'm in love.
What have I done lol2
I'm taking a unit at my university called 'simulation and modeling'. Today was the first class and the professor was talking about random number generators.
Professor: Every language has a function to generate...Every good(emphasis on good) language has a function to generate a random number... Oh well even php does...
😂😂😂😂I'm already in love with the unit...5
Greetings everyone. I'm new here and also a beginner in programming. I just stumble upon the devRant and found myself entertained thus I've decided to log myself in. I'm quite a lost soul out here and still not sure if the path that I'm taken right now is the right one. Not that I don't enjoy it but sometimes it just get too frustrated and overbearing with all those "cryptic alien" codes that I'm trying to learn. I love to code but... sigh~ I never rant to anyone before since I'm quite a shy person and rather keep it in. So I try to rant it here. I guess that will make my frustration out of my chest? PS:English is not my native. I love the interface design. It's so cute. Not sure if this rant will be the first and last. I might regret this and will just continue to dwell behind the internet shadow.24
"You should put your homework on Github so I can find it easily"
I'm not sure I want my teacher to look into my github page. I mean what if he finds my Discord bot? How would he feel about my tts command saying "f*ck bitchies, get money" when someone say "love" or "poor" in a chat-room? Will he judge me?16
if there's one thing I love more than coding, it's using metaphors to explain to other people why they're not "getting it". like the all famous contractor:
"yeah I know you need 5 months to build my house, but can you do it in 2. Also, I'm going to pay half. Oh, and when the house is done, could you also add a cellar?"
any more good metaphors out there?4
I love and hate at the same time how the dependencies of some projects can turn into projects themselves.
Working on a quite big project right now and need notifications in the form of smartphone notifications/signal messages/emails right now for that which is nearly all working but now I'm realizing that it'd be ten times more useful to write a general messaging gateway/API wich can be called through a url which handles any type of messaging/notifications I need to send out.
Love it because those kinda projects are useful and awesome imo but that'd be YET ANOTHER project 😅😥3
I have a confession to make. When i started programming it was done in my room all alone for around 6 months. I started watching porn while programming. And eventually only watched porn while coding to a point where I got turned on by programming.
I'm not sure if this further stimulated my love for programming or dimmed it. But sex and coding are now linked in my brain.7
My parents think I'm teaching computers to think strategic to rule the world some day. They are a bit scared. They love me though. But they are scared.
Also my mum once told me that I should take care not to end in hell. She was serious about it.1
I'm falling in love with C#. So classy...
Languages are always girls to me, as the computers.21
!rant #meta: I registered just yesterday and woke up this morning with 44 notifications, which is great because this community is obviously refreshingly active, plus I really love getting notifications. Nevertheless, is it really necessary to create an individual notification for EVERY SINGLE +1?! Dear devRant devs, I love what you're doing. But please, PLEASE, merge/group these notifications into just a few. I don't want to go through every single one of these, it's just cluttering my notification list. I always just clear the list and then use the in-app bell symbol to navigate to whatever item I'm interested in. I can't be the only one.5
Me to gf: hey hun look what I built! (Shows off new project)
Gf: (sees video playing in background) oh that's so cool! Did you do that? (Points at video)
Me: no, but look at this! (Shows off feature)
Gf: oh... well that's great hun, I'm so happy you are doing what you love
For this year I have four main tasks I have set myself:
1. Don't lose my job
2. Write a few toy programming languages
3. Blog about said languages and things I learnt at work
4. Get married
I'm pretty excited about most of those but would love some tips on how you guys have overcome challenges in similar endevours5
Programmer writes script against phone scammers, definitely something I should have done 😂
Please check this out. I'm in love lol...5
I love that my boss can swing by when I'm editing my dotfiles, or chatting in Telegram CLI, or browsing Reddit in rtv, and he thinks I'm hard at work because it's the terminal.2
Not quite a rant... more of a question.
So, I'm almost 40 years old. I have a lot of work experience in varying fields, much of it in low-level management.
Truth is I've ALWAYS wanted to be a programmer.
I recently got into a somewhat competitive training program
where I'm learning to write Java, and will subsequently learn Android development. It's fairly in-depth, so it will take 10 moths to complete. My ultimate goal it's to work as a mobile dev at a great company, making products people love. Ambitious, I know.
My question is: Am I a fool for attempting to get into this field at this age? I'm starting to panic a little. I'm not sure if I'm wasting my time, or if 40 is too old to be the "newbie".
"Guys, I'm going to change my studies next year, I'll be studying IT, programming, stuff about computers"
"You mean, they threw you out of mechanical engineering and you are forced to do that?"
"No, I chose it myself, I'm not interested in mechanical engineering anymore."
"But you love it, you repaired your car! (WTF???) But are you sure there are jobs for what you are studying now?"
"Well, much more than in mechanical engineering actually..."
Like, they didn't notice that I'm fond of IT stuff since I'm 13... C'mon guys...3
I love that feeling when I'm about to post the question on SO, and in the last minute I figure it out by myself. Now I don't have to worry about getting dowvotes or asshole mods.7
You need to stop that person from being born. I'm forwarding the details now.
-- Future you”3
I've always felt like a world class programmer after printing a hello world message on screen until now.
People are continuously ranting some technical shit that's completely above my head on devrant.
Fuck you for downing my morale
PS: I'm still in love with it!^_^4
I'm in the 3rd year of engineering and did not learn anything from college. Thought it was high time. In the past 6 months I learned html, css and python. Not fully, but I practice everyday and now fallen in love with coding. Started making a 2d game on python as well. Will put it on Github when there will be something to show. Thank you devs all around the world for helping and answering all my stupid doubts. I love this community :D3
Does anybody out there actually really love their job? Because I do. I'm not sure if it's just me or that my job is actually great, but my coworkers are respectful, my boss lets me have control over each project's pace, I get to write tests and invest in refactoring, and I make good money doing it.
Is this just me?7
Recently started watching Silicon valley and I'm already in love with it!
Too bad it's not on Netflix and I have to watch it... you know... somewhere else.6
I wanna make online friends that program too, I would love to just sit in a call or sumn and just talk and program and ask for help or vice versa if needed. But I'm that person who also rarely already talks to his current IRL and Online friends that dont program. And can never and doesnt like to spare my own time to talk to others. I'm quite frankly screwed 😂6
I just want to be better. I want to do good in this world.
I'm so fucking sick of feeling like I haven't really made a difference so this year I'm going to nail fucking Python and get into some form of scientific programming.
I'll probably be pestering you all for advice and help and complaining a lot so bear with me and thank you all in advance.
I wish every one of you all the very best in everything you do and send all my love <36
I'm a python fanboy, not gonna lie.
I love everything about it. It's clean syntax, ready to use out of the box-ness, convenient built-in functions.
The one thing I hate is the official documentation. It's ugly, hard to navigate and a cluster fuck.
But it has proper information, so it's fine I guess. tsch14
The more I work with backend and SysAdmin technologies, the more I love them!
I'm losing the desire to ever do frontend work again. SysAdmin in particular seems like a good fit for me and I'm not sure why.
Anybody else experience this sort of shift and how did it end?2
I started learning Ruby.
So far it seems like the perfect balance of elegance and functionality.
I'm in love.6
This is the poster I have on my door, in the hopes it would determine people from disturbing me and consequently taking me out of the zone and productivity streak I'm on. Sadly it does not work as often as I'd like it to 🙁 but I still love it 😆6
I swear I NEVER hated PHP before, but after seeing this shit, I just can't love it anymore, I feel betrayed
I mean, WTF? Just bc I'm using the variable as a reference in the NEXT loop the LAST element changes? What even is the fucking reason?
Yeah, I read the answer on StackOverflow, but seriously...
SO ref: https://stackoverflow.com/questions...12
I wrote a Stateless module in ruby, now I can't stop looking it. I think I'm in love with my module.
That's normal? I need help?2
No matter how many frameworks and supersets I try, I always conclude that nothing beats vanilla JS. ES6 in particular is such a beautiful language, and I love having fine control over what happens under the hood.
When I'm done I can just transpile it to whatever ES version, although it's slowly becoming a non-issue.2
So... Had a burn out cause of overwork...
One of the bosses treats me like shit cause my education stops me to reply at his low level...
One white hair to make a complaint...
In Portugal if someone makes a complaint to the authorities the company gets a full inspection... I'm sad cause I love the owners... And they will loose most certificates... And that's lots, lots of money from a company that works with porche, ferrari, audi....10
I've now for months been lurking on this awesome app and I love the community. I've been trying to self learn coding but kept hitting a wall. But now i'm starting in school to learn coding and i'm so exited to learn it and be a part of this awesome community.3
Oh god! Why did I change to Ubuntu!!! This machine is running hotter and slower!!! Battery drains faster than ever!
There's no going back to windows 10... looking back, I love windows 10 despite its faults :')
Did anyone else experience the same? First thing I'm doing in the morning is install arch linux18
I love to sleep, but once I stayed almost 26 hours making a front-end design as a test to enter to a company in Brasil. And here I am. Worth it.
BTW, I completed the test in 9 hours, I'm just adding more hours as everyone here hahaha. I stayed awake for 26 hours but had a normal day. Does it count?
Looking for some advice....
So I'm a web dev that works remotely full time from home which I love, I'm expecting my first child in late march which is really exciting but I'm starting to think about how it's all going to work with the missus home for at least 12 months and of course a baby that (without sounding horrible) is going to be a big distraction to me when I'm trying to work.
So just wanted to know if there was anyone else out there in a similar position or that has gone through the same thing and how you did it? Is there any advice you can give me?
Appreciate any thoughts.13
Dev friend: Happy in your job?
- Me: Kinda, don't see myself doing it for another 35 years tho.. :(
Dev friend: Go back to school, learn computer sciences and get a dev job. You'll love it.
So now I'm back in school, no regrets whatsoever. Without a doubt best advice.. :)
I can't understand the people who are in love with Qt. Did you ever actually use it?
It has shitty UI components (compare them with Microsoft WPF or even WinForms), and it is fucking full of bugs. Really. I've never seen that many bugs in other frameworks.
I'm a Linux guy, but try .net if you want to see what a great framework is actually like.5
I was good at school, I was and I'm still loving video games. I wanted to create my video games. Now I like robots and I'm learning how to create robots. I could say : programming allowed me to build and personnalize the things I liked in my life. And I found who I am. I love to create.
I love, love, LOVE Unity Engine!!!
Great tutorials, good documentation, helpful community, easy to understand interface...
It's all just... so beautiful.
I swear to god that I'm not shilling for them, I'm just so happy that, as a generally lazy SOB, I've been working for about 10+ hours now in one sitting, and I'm still not bored or frustrated that I don't get something.
God bless you Unity, I might actually make something outta myself...maybe...someday.9
When I was 14 years old my mom wouldn't buy me a game which was for sixteen years old people. At this point I didn't know how hard programming actually is so I decided to make the game by myself. And now I'm sixteen and in love with programming. (by the way started with C++)2
Seriously, if you avoid classes in favor of Object.create and if you make use of lambdas instead of bind/apply/call whenever possible, it might successfully give you the illusion of a clean language.2
Just wondering, fellow devRanters...
Q: What is your favorite programming language, and why?
I'm currently studying Unity, so I'm in love with C#, it helped me understand a lot of concepts like namespaces, encapsulation, constructors, something that I was struggling to grasp with PHP, which I use every single day at work.17
When does programming suck for you, and when is it fun?
Like I hate programming, when I run into an obscure use case that opens up some serious errors with my some, or gasp, all, of my architecture and forces me to rethink everything - especially DB design, ugh.
I love programming when my architecture and DB design create naturally readable code and everything falls into place and I feel like a genius.
I guess, in short.... plan before you code?
And then, plan again.
But don't plan too much.
The love/hate of my programming life summed up right there I think.
How about you?11
I just love PMs that wait until an hour before I'm supposed to leave and come and say, "Hey, we need you to do this thing right now. We're doing performance testing in QA this evening." And then take 45 minutes to get the information to me, without telling me which database or schema. Like, did you just find this out, or have you known this for the past week, and are just now telling me?4
I love the first weeks after a job change. It's just like falling in love, everything seems to be perfect until you take off the pink glasses.
Have to wait until I'm assigned a burning project to have a full picture.
Actually I am in a burning project. Deadline in 2 weeks. Doing Bugfixes which do not require in-depth project knowledge, and... It's fine. All a matter of perspective. I also think that project based work suits me more than usual 15y old legacy enterprise shit. And I'm able to switch. From embedded C++ over hardware dev to fullstack .NET (I consider myself as a full-fullstack dev, able to do everything from hardware to frontend).
Topics such as IOT, medical, device engineering, machine learning. Wow.
It's my first company having >50 employees and multiple offices in multiple countries. I used to jump every 2 years from one shitty garage company to another.
Wish me good luck ✌️2
So coming from the interpreted language world (mainly using python), I'm always amazed on how compiled languages work. Especially C.
Every time I use C, it's like everything is sooooo faster (runtime), and yes I've read about it so many times. It's just that I can't explain this great feeling about actually seeing the results of using C.
Man, I think I just love C (even though I'm still confused in using pointers).4
If you want it and there's no better alternative, make it.
This is what has driven me for the past few years as I've fallen hopelessly in love with programming. I'm my own creator; my own God, if you will.
Hello devRant !
I'm a student in computer science, in my last year. In one course, I'm asked to make a contribution on an open source project and participate in it's community.
Since I love the people here, I was wondering if you could point me something not too big I can help with that would be useful. To give you an idea, I have some experience in both Android and web development, but none in anything iOS.
Anyway, thanks for reading and you're awesome ! (Tagging dfox 'cause you know, helping the project ^^)14
Don't you just love it when a department buys a software for the company without consulting IT and Data Management departments? You know to discuss integration, flexibility, compatibility and all that?
Don't you love it even more when the users of this new software then complain about the different tools that have to learn and the workflow being completely scattered?
But hey, they work in administration, so I'm sure they know what they are doing. ⚡⚡⚡4
So, right now I'm 16 atm I know some basics of php,python but I love Python more than php. So my question it's:
Most of the universities in my country for computer science, are based on java, c++ and some another stuff.
What should I do? Should I start learning C++ / Java or continue using python?10
Kubernetes is actually sick. I love learning about it and playing around with localized clusters. The only thing that sucks is I would never use this for anything while I'm still a CS student. And I probably won't ever use this if I'm not in Devops. *sigh*. fun to learn about, regardless.
I always thought programming was not for me, simply because I'm not really good at math. I studied graphic design, but switched to an education called Interactive Multimedia Design, which teaches a combination of webdevelopment and -design. At first, I thought I'd love the design part more, and would really struggle with development, but it turned out that I was a natural; I wrote my first Java program and I fell in love with programming. 6 years later I'm a happy full stack JS developer, rarely doing any graphic work anymore. I do have a soft spot for UX still, but that only makes me better at what I do on a daily basis, imho.
I never liked Facebook. I only use it to get posts from the pages on architecture. Yeah, i wanted to be an architect 😅. But after a week of getting into coding, i flipping fell in love with this too. After, i found devrant, i thank god that it exists. Facebook is for people ranting about what their relatives are liking or hating or what, people they don't know, are doing. That's not real. What you guys, the community so wonderful rants about everyday, is the real stuff. I love devrant. I love to code.
Chalo(is about the same as saying,"I'm out"), Good Night peeps 😴.I'm high on sleep.
P.S. didn't proof read the above because high on sleep2
I FUCKING love it when I try to understand how to simply fucking connect to my server via SSH, and seeing tutorials from cocksuckers that just screen some form fields without telling where I can find them, and juping from steps to steps like I'm in your fucking head
CAN'T YOU WRITE SOMETHING THAT WOULD MAKE SENSE, YOU FUCKING MORON???4
Can't we just write rants in html? I mean I'm enjoying devRant really well so far but adding html tags and so would make me love it here even more13
Arch I want to love you. But you're so freaking unstable and I just want to code in peace without you freaking out every week about config files being screwed up. Why can't we have the stability of more mainstream distros AND the Pacman package manager + AUR? Some of us have to code for a living you know.
I'm really tempted to just go back to Debian to set it and forget it. PPA's be damned.12
I love how most users carefully snip out the problematic areas of web the page to a bare minimum, where all I can see is the broken bit... which is fine...
...BUT I'M REALLY ALSO INTERESTED IN THE URL because parameters, man!!!1
Started new course called "Introduction to natural language processing" in uni. I am super bad at doing regular expressions and don't understand anything about them.
Saw the first weeks homework. Have to do i.e. some text cleanup with regex... I was sad. But now after reading the course material and trying some of the exercises I'm super excited since I'm actually doing something "real" with it.
Do you guys just love it when teaching material is well written? I do.3
As much as I love programming, I like to help others when they're in trouble with code (even thoe sometimes I'm not that helpful) but I hate when someone asks me for help and when I try that person acts he knows it all and that my suggestions are stupid... I mean why did he ask for help in the first place?2
OMFG caddy server is fucking beautiful, I'm falling in love with it at every test... So simple 😍
Does anyone have experience to share with it?11
few errors in application and boss said I'm not made for development , eventhough I love working in my field. Devastated :(7
I'm thinking about making an linkidin account. I'm mostly a privacy centered person so I don't have any social media. Should I do it because it can maybe help me in my career? I'm currently at my first junior dev job.
Love to hear your opinions.3
I love programming drunk! I can't sit still and always want to do stuff. When I'm drunk / tipsy I come up with ideas and start working on it. Most of the time in the morning, when my mind is clear, I'm not so creative and open minded as I'm drunk. Sometimes my ideas ain't that bad, but I loose interest in developing it any further. So I stop working on it.
This is a while == true loop
DAMNIT. I love Netflix, I do, but if you want to really stop the illegal downloading in the long term then don't remove series or movies I'm watching.
I get it, it's these big companies pulling their content but it's just so backwards.
Happy new year!5
I'm sitting in my RV and it's been raining for two days almost non-stop.
Is there anything more wonderful than rain falling on the roof of the car? I love that sound. Nightly silence and rain.
I'm leaving my current job in a week. What is a great prank I can pull off on my team before/after leaving the company?
I'm more interested in a long con which plays out slowly after I leave (maybe on April fool's?) Please share if you got any cool ideas or experience.
Context: I designed and built a web app which is used to manage stuff (CRUD) related to my project internally.
I would really love to hear some funny and non-destructive suggestions.12
What coffee do you like, ranters? Or maybe you prefer tea? 🤔
Share the photos/names of your fav. drink, that you love drinking, I'm just curious.
Just drank nice ice cappuccino bought a while ago in Kaufland. Nice, but hot coffee seems better to me.29
devRant help me!
I'm getting a lovely little tax return and am in the middle on what laptop to buy.
MacBook Pro (I like MacOS and build quality, fight me)
PixelBook (I'm a google fanboy and love ChromeOS so once again... Fight me)
What do you think would be the best option keeping in mind the PixelBook will run Linux apps as well...19
I'm in involved in a situation where one old corporate is helping build solution for another old corporate's Windows 98-XP systems.
Still a better love story than twilight.1
I'm in a midlife crisis.
TL;DR: Trying to make a living by teaching people how to code.
I've started a business in my local town where people can join to learn more about programming. Currently most events are free and everyone can join, I spend many hours creating these events and get little in return.
Many people have asked so how can you make money on this? My answer is by having 1-2 days of intensive workshops. The issue however is if I would have one of these, I'm 100% sure that nobody will attend, so for that reason my goal is to run these free events and get as many members as possible until I have some serious buyers that want to pay for the workshops.
I'm kinda stuck in the mud. Don't know where to start, or how to go with these workshops so I can get payed. It sounds like I only care about money, but that is not the case, I love to teach and want to make a living from it.
At this moment, it feels like I'm giving away free knowledge without getting anything back... But at the same time, I feel I must in order to gain some traffic/interest for my company.
I would love some feedback of what strategy works best, how can I go from free to payed, what would you do if you were in my shoes?5
I would like to proclaim my utmost love and respect to a programming language and one of its framework.
This language/framework combo was so beautiful that during development I had fantasies about it coming to life as the women I want to marry. I genuinely felt love in my heart to her. I even felt butterflies in my stomach thinking about her!
But I'm worried I might jinx it. So I'm not gonna name it.
I love you.8
I usually don't like frontend but dammit, I'm in love with Less.
It's so painless, compared to plain CSS.
1 - I love coding because since when I was a kid I really loved to solve problems and create things
2 - I always tried to understand how computers worked, and how could yo make a program because when I was a kid I was almost always on the computer and my dream was to create a virus 😂
3 - I was studying my baccalaureate and I hadn't decided what to study in the university. I was only playing videogames and installing software to make jokes. So, my computing teacher taught me to code in VB.net and how to manage a local network so I decided to study and IT degree before going to the university, and when I was studying that I falled in love with programming so I'm currently in the university studying software development engineer
Have I told you that I love Sass? Yes? Well, that's fucking true! Like today I decided to host the used font myself and just include all font-awesome SCSS into my main.sass and saved one <link>. That boosted loading time and user don't have to see those ugly squares while page is loading. I'm truly in love.7
10th grade, I was barely 15. They taught us C#, and then we made the transition into Java in 11th grade, and later on they taught us how to develop for Android. I absolutely fell in love with the concept of programming. Today I'm a mobile dev (both iOS & android) and a University student.5
¿Why people hate PHP so much? I love it since it was my first web dev lang and I fell in love with it, however, I decided to move to another language since apparently It's going to die, not saying tomorrow but eventually. I'm not sure which language to pick (between Python (django, pyramid), Elixir (Phoenix) or Ruby (RoR). Any suggestions?
Also, what language you use and do you like PHP?5
So I'm a junior in University for Computer Science and software engineering and while I'm a decent coder, I've noticed that I'm not as interested in the Coding aspect of it as others. I don't really think about doing projects of my own and tend to just focus on the schoolwork. I feel like I recognize patterns rather than fully understanding what's going on. I did extremely well in the Coding bootcamp I went to, better than most. But I'm worried that I'm not as into being an engineer as I think I should be. I love working with computers and the process of making something, but I'm always second guessing being an engineer.
Am I just worrying too much? Imposter syndrome?6
I'm already thinking about rewriting my personal projects from scratch lol.
I don't like coding in the dark anymore. I think I've been doing it for about 2 years but I, just now, realized it.
I never even noticed when I started doing it. I just remember that--when the sun sets and I'm still working--I think to myself "ugh, it's too dark in here".
It just seems crazy to me because I used to love the dark. Not in the broody, ooh I'm a hacker kind of way.. just that I worked better in the dark.
I used to choose afternoon or evening shifts whenever given the choice because my brain works better when it's dark out (if that even makes sense). I used to work inside conference rooms with the lights out or dimmed.
But now, I just caught myself thinking I needed a brighter light in my home office.
Huh. I think I'm getting old.3
I'm hosting dancers for BluesShout! a dance festival in Chicago. Three of the people I'm hosting are developers (two girls, one guy). There are a lot of engineering types that dance. If you haven't done any social dancing, you should really give it a shot. Find a Lindy/Swing, Blues or Contra group and take a class. You might love it. 💃💜3
I love 2:30 am support calls, especially for a system I know nearly nothing about and when I'm supposed to be 4th in line for a call.
Hopefully I made the right decision. Now let's see if I can fall back asleep.2
So I'm wondering how I'm getting a date that, according to the settings should not be that one in that case, but is pretty fucking close (so much so that I first thought that was the correct one).
Then I realise it's because I'm hitting a case where I can't get all the necessary info so I literally made a method called GuessDate and it tries to guess the date based on available info and it did an amazing job, but it didn't have all the data so it's slightly off.
I both love and hate programming right now :)2
First Year in College.
I have been into computers since 9th Standard. What I meant was I could make music, edit images, play and install games after downloading, hack them(change values) using Cheat Engine, make trainers for myself because why type when you can freeze, format computers using a pendrive (trust me, I saved a lot of money) and then finally, make some presentations and send emails.
Now, College begins. Programming in C language. I don't know what the fuck that means. But they say, it's 'essential'.
Enter Professor. "Okay students, we begin with the course on C Language. how many of you know pointers?".
Me: Wow. Sounds cool. But, I don't know anything.
I couldn't love coding. I think I love to code but at the end of the day, I'm a sick Undergraduate who fell in love with a Bass Guitar and Vocals and wants to code for a living. Heavily interested in changing the world and all that stuff but have no motivation and even if I have, I can't give a fuck about it.
Peers are getting medals everywhere. I'm sitting alone in a room learning C. They said, It was 'essential', but they never told me, 'why'.
Not a rant. IDGAF what you think but I'm a failure looking for ways to make a living.7
I used to have time to read up on new web development tools and techniques and it helped me get a better job.
Now I have a better job I'm always busy, which I love, but it's harder to keep up to date.
I do some reading in my own time but it's more difficult to focus.
Thinking about it, I suppose I do keep learning just by being at work and solving new problems.1
@linuxxx I'm about to found a start-up.
In fact me and my buddy with some freelancing contracts. And we are in need of a dedicated server.
Our plan is to host the clients inside docket container.
Technology would be dotnet core and either react/angular/Vue.js, if that matters.
The host will run on arch, because I feel in love with it! 😍
Do you have any suggestions for a provider for us?
Budget between 100-125€
Thanks in advance!7
I'm in love with service workers. This is so fucking satisfying (also love the offline first capabilities)6
Just got asked to be a tutor for the new 1. Semester students when school starts, in a couple of weeks (I'm starting 3. Semester) 😁
I love to teach, so for me this is really awesome 😀2
The company I'm working for organizes meetups in Mexico City about web technology, i love it because supports opensource software1
I'm most excited about Smart Contracts & Distributed Applications.
In early January I started learning Solidity thinking it would be super difficult but was pleasantly surprised when I'd completed my first DApp in a couple days. Two months on and I've finished 3 major projects and launched my own Udemy course.
I'm not a big follower of Crypto Currencies at all and haven't become financially invested in anything really. I just love the way development works on a blockchain; it is quite interesting and It feels really fresh solving problems using code that will become immutable.
For those of you who want something comparable to the full Dark themes people have used on Linux for years here's a high contrast windows theme that doesn't look like garbage. I'm absolutely in love with it and will never go back. It's my favorite theme since the Windows classic theme. Also it's just a theme profile, so no worries about modding files or installing some malware infested theme manager.
Si I live in México, and a big university is giving this 8 day course on machine Learning and automated robotics and I was accepted!! And I'm super pumped, because I really want to work in the industry and love taking any posible oportunity to learn something new.
This also is a perfect excuse to travel to Guadalajara and get all of my questions about the university answerd
There it is, I just wanted to be excited somewhere else xd6
when you work in a start up, and they give you the projects lead old chair, which has broken. doesn't go up or down, doesn't lock, and is ripped in several places.
I'm really feeling the love. hello sore back...
I always love trying something new, especially when it's Linux.
In this case, I'm installing Plasma Mobile on my phone to see how it handles.1
I do not work developing, besides this is really a passion for me. Said that, today I was talking with my boss.
Boss: Your idea is great, I love this tool you made.
Me: Thank you, I just need to finish some details, this last dramatic change in our structure messed up with a lot of things.
Boss: Yes, I have some ideas to we code more.
Me: Great! I love development! We can do ...
Boss: No, we can use your time with other things as it is more expensive. I'm going to get a boy still in college to develop.3
I love learning by doing.
Building MVPs and prototypes is the best way. Even better if you have a chance to show and share them in front of an audience (peer pressure can be good!).
Share the lessons you've learned and what you've done wrong, it will help many more people than just yourself.
I've been working for an eLearning company for the last 4 years (CloudAcademy.com) and I'm in love with the idea of learning something new every day. And not just coding. Code is "only" a tool to solve problems, and learning something about those problems and fields will make you a better developer.
Hey DevRant fam, hope you're all doing very well.. for quite a while now I've been having this sort of emotion.. I'm in my final couple of weeks of College and have been looking to apply for some Junior software developer roles.. however for some reason i feel as if i may not be good enough, or perhaps i may not know enough to begin with, I'd love to know has anyone before experienced this feeling or this emotion? How have you dealt with it? would love some insight :-)
Gonna have 8 hours of exam in C without eating or have a little break. I love this but I'm gonna be so tired4
Where the fuck do I take myself?
I love programming, I like cricket in sports as hell, I love blogging writing, love to do sketching have very much interest in photography.
Damit I'm hatting myself7
So much has happened, I've been learning things, I got robbed, I discovered I love test driven development, my laptop fell downstairs and is now screenless, I'm still on this project and still have not gotten the source or gone live, side work exists though so I get to make some more money, car engine needs to be overhauled, project extended still not in production. Send Help.1
Don't you just love it when you spend 2 days carefully configuring a stack on AWS CloudFormation and then deploy it, hoping everything goes fine, just to realize you didn't change the region ON THE MOTHERFUCKING TOP BANNER!!!!!... and now you have to delete everything and redeploy it... no? well I love this...I truly do...I'm not mad, not at all...
Do I think this is a retarded interface, you say? YES I do...
Am I mad? PHffff...not AT ALL!!!
What's that? Why is my eye twitching? Because of happiness...I'm so full of joy it's coming out of my eyes...in the form of twitching...and tears...
To the SysAdmins and Linux-Engineers here,
How you got into your job?
I'm a Linux-Fanboy by heart and love tinkering and fiddling with systems, so I want to work in the field?
Please tell me, how you got into your job, and how it is to work in the field.7
Contributing to large open source projects.
It's something I wanted to do since I fell in love with one programming language (which shall remain nameless here). However, I'm not restricting myself to one project. I have many projects I'd like to contribute to.
I even wrote this down in my 5-year plan for the future.2
It's 5 AM I've been awake for like 5 hours. I was asleep for 6 hours total. I'm going back to sleep the last 3 hours. It'll be 8 or 9 AM. I love being a night owl. I managed to get farther along in Legend of Zelda The Minish Cap. Personally I like a Link to the past better; there is less combat in the Minish Cap.6
Sircmpwn's sway wm, an i3 clone for Wayland, I love i3 but I'm also an advocate for the ditching of xorg. (Close to beta)
Honorable mention for anbox which tries to do a similar thing Google is doing to run Android apps natively in Linux. (Alpha)4
I'm seriously interested in programming and all that comes with it and have been for a long time. I'd love to talk to some people that share the same interest but struggle to find people. Any tips? Note: I am not in university/college yet.8
Sony Ericsson are just awesome. They not only have AT commands over USB without any unlocking, but also OBEX and docs for it. I'm absolutely in love with that!3
Two months in my new job, no task assigned to me yet. Not even one. There's been a budget reallocation, and the team just got dissolved. Will probably be moved to a new team (or not?). Part of me enjoys the free time I'm getting (I get to work on my side projects) but it's kind of depressing that I can't prove to the company how much I love building things while at the same time helping the company. 😔4
I haven't coded a new project in a long time. I want to build something, show it to the world and hope people use it. I love webapps as I'm pretty experienced in this, and have a huge interest for smart homes, internet of things, twilio, innovative payments and more. What could my MVP be?11
What's your favorite vps hoster?
I'm currently using scaleway and love it, but recently learned that they offer no protection against data loss.
So I'm looking for an alternative for a project in production that has automatic backups as well as unmetered bandwidth.7
I'm convinced, I love my wife's brand new Tesla Model X P90D.. 5411 lbs blowing 0-60 in 3.17 seconds.. it's f*cking ludicrous.. no more petrol cars for me from now on!1
Eating at your desk! I mean, Jesus fucking Christ! I'm tired of pretending like I love that stomach churning funk coming out of that thing you call lunch while I'm choking myself to keep up with the deadlines.
I rather spend the rest of the day in a vat full of rotting dead rats.2
Tl;dr coding is awesome, but teaching good programming skills is fundamental. Take some time to teach and help someone in need!
This morning I had to help two of my students who were unable to write a simple program to simulate a random sampling. It reminded me of how helpless I felt when I started out, and how I felt stupid for not getting easy concepts (and now I'm in love with programming). Here on devRant I hear so many stories about bad programming teachers, but it doesn't have to be that way. I'm the most impatient person on this planet, but I love teaching and I wish more people did it. So, go out and spread the word, fellow devRanters!3
I recently decided to try out vim. I've got to say, I fucking love it!!! And since I hear you can customize it, I'm super looking forward to that!!!
Not that in quitting on Sublime or anything, I do want to give vim a try.2
I discovered Tmux recently. I already love it!
(if you want a list of plugins used in both Tmux and Vim, just ask. I'm also open to suggestions since it's something I don't really know too well)5
I'm in love with Webpack but jeeeeeesus when it breaks in obscure ways maaaaan
Like, I got it working earlier, no errors, everything looks great... aaaaand website is blank. No page, no source, not even anything in the console, just blank. Over an hour later... turns out removing the output target fixes it. Why? No idea. Nothing.2
Spiders; the only web developers that love finding bugs.
Thinking of creating something using the "spider" concept, for developers and software engineers. Maybe it'll replace GitHub in our lives, maybe.
And yes, I'm a bit drunk.1
I just built a website with Hugo. And I love it. Got a request for a certain set of pages but because of the workflow the one thing I could dynamically load wasn't worth a whole wordpress site.
So I built it with Hugo instead. I played with it a little last week so I could get around but I got good this week and damn it's powerful.
I think I'm in love. I wish more projects at work could be built in Hugo.12
In high school I absolutely hated business and science subjects(phy, chem, bio) as well.
Not to forget fucking maths. Calculas and all that shit I never paid attention to.
I chose CS hoping it would rid me of maths.
Fell in love with programming the very first semester.
Now I'm in my last semester and a freelance Web Dev.
If you make themes in twig for a saas platform, for the love of god, learn twig. Learn to use partials and macro's for fucks sake.
Instead of building a good and maintainable theme I'm spending my time doing these "quick wins" that are horrible to implement. The whole thing is build up like that Escher staircase painting.
Yesterday : I hate everyone in Microsoft that works on this funding visual studio that now crashing every time I open my project 😤I'm going to kill them
Today : Wait... What is this? A new update? Solution now open without crashing! OH I LOVE MICROSOFT especially visual studio team 😘💗4
Dad was (and is) a technic freak, I played as kid with electronics instead of toys.
I'm always interested to modify things to feel more individual (Own Skins in game, modding, ...)
This and the love to games (-> "I wannaa make my own videogame daddy") developed into a curious computer science student working at IBM that loves to learn anything related to it and I'm so freaking happy about it! ☺️
I'm about to ask a really, lets just say challenging, question.
I'm well aware that PHP is server side and JS is client side. Don't worry, i'm not as dumb as I look, but I've taken interest in the formerly known as phpjs.org project now known as Locutus. (Love their name and idea.)
My question is whether anyone has used any little bit of that project, and if so, can you use it for something like Wordpress or Joomla to have a purely serverless and dynamic website? I know. I know. Dumb. I'm just curious because the idea intrigues me more than anything to have something like that.4
Has anyone heard of the crystal programming language?I just found out about it today and I think I'm in love 😍2
When I first got Linux, then fell in love with diving through the system on the command line. Then I also realised I finally had the confidence to learn what I wanted, instead of what was advised to me.
Still in no way confident with programming, but I'm getting there.
Looking for help I'm a software development student been studying programming for 3 years so have some experience just wondering is any good online tutorials or books that could help me develop my Python skills we don't cover it in college and I would love to pick up on how to use Python but all courses I find are very basic and expect I'm a beginner3
I felt inspired when I found out about Minecraft mods when I was in elementary school. I thought they looked so cool. I then went and actually bought a Java reference book but I never made any mods. Because Counter Strike came into my life and well I wasn't too proud of myself. But now I've quit CS:GO and I'm now committed to learning programing and I love it!1
I really love Ubuntu Mono and similar fonts, because they're nice to look at while coding, so I tried to use it in Emacs.
Man, what it produced is just... disgusting! I couldn't see anything even in Ubuntu Mono "normal" version (not bold, not italic) with size 10 (my normal size).
In smaller size I almost couldn't recognize characters in code, in bigger it yelled at me I'm blind. Wtf emacs...6
Just ran a terraform configuration to set up my infrastructure on digital ocean
My god i'm in love3
I was working as a web developer from 2 year. That was so difficult.
I just change my job to start in a new society last monday.
Not web at all. I'm learning a new langage. And I love it.
Maybe software development it what I must do.
Hopping keep this job.4
I'm a CS student, and I'm having serious doubts. I love programming and my job on campus has me making a .net site and such which I enjoy.
However, I'm doing really bad in calculus again, and if I fail it I may never get to retake it because it's my third try. I know I can get a job without a degree, but I'm unsure if I even want to program anything that would require knowledge of calculus anyway. I understand what it accomplishes, but I don't want spend the rest of my life applying calculus. Is it really that important in industry? Or is it just something college puts an undue pressure on?
My CS courses don't challenge me much, and I enjoy them a little, but is being great at calculus required?5
How do you bribe *cough* "thank" your character references?
I know a few people who vouched for me in the past without me asking for it and a few others that I asked for permission to list down in my character references. Most of these people live in different cities, companies, and some are even in different countries so the usual "I'll treat you to dinner and fuck your brains out." wouldn't work.
Kidding aside, do those online gift certificates make decent gifts? I'd love to have an excuse to stalk someone, see what they like, and have it appear at their doorstep but that might be too much unless I can make a lantern out of them.
I'm thinking that a certificate for several orders of coffee in a decent coffee shop would be a good choice since that's the common denominator of all the developers I worked with - coffee love.
if non dev boss walks in to my office one more time to tell me how I'm crushing it, I will lose my mind. for the love of God, just let me work undisturbed, and stop trying to be my 'bro'.
Not sure if it still counts as a 'dev' goal but for 2o19 I'd like to finally stop being a 'ooh, this is a mess, I can fix this..just one more thing and I'm done for today' person. Even my bosses tell me to go home already, so I hope this year I will be able to do just that: turn my head off and go home, do other things in life I also love.2
brought up clippy - thought of this
i love it. musik is so good, and the video brings me joy bc i'm old and a grumpy bitter person that kinda misses the shitty dial-up days in some ways
I love being a part of a dev project as a non-dev employee, but I really wish I could leave VBA.
If for no other reason, because I'm tired of writing functions that end with "Me.Cells(Row, Column).Value" practically in my sleep.
There are a lot of other reasons, though...1
Have to translate an API library from Ruby into PHP for work, and I swear it's all of the worst pieces of BASIC and Swift thrown together. To top it off, looking up a symbol chart for it to try and get a handle on the symbols they love to throw in front of variable and method names is useless because "symbol" is a freaking type in this language! Arrays are apparently called "hashes" now, and I can't quite tell if modules are supposed to be namespaces or classes yet...
If Ruby has redeeming qualities, I'm definitely open to hearing them. Right now I'm kind of feeling homesick for vanilla C, however...1
Perfectionism... I often refactor my code because I always see something that could be "done better" in my own work, which can slow me down if I'm not paying attention to my main task.
If I could stop time I would perfect my code all day, but that isn't realistic. 😂
Doesn't apply to dev work only, I've had to learn the art of not giving a shit about every single detail in many other disciplines. I just love getting things done really well.
Are there any good plugins/tools or something for visual studio 15 to turn it into a good IDE for PHP developing?
I'm using Brackets now, i tried Eclipse, PhpStorm (too slow and only a 30 day trial) and Atom so far. But idk, theres always something that makes me thinking like "nah.. thats not the right for me". Now i wanted to try VS. I used it for C++ developing and was pretty much in love with it.10
I'm in my final year of high school, 17 years old, hoping to go to TAFE to do a coding course. I've done some HTML, CSS and Java at school and I only really know the basics of them all. I've been learning python in my free time and fuck man is it confusing. I love coding but it's so confusing at times, I really need some words of encouragement. Thanks guys :)4
I love it when someone wants you to troubleshoot an issue but will not give you a test user account to test with. So you have to sit with a user or talk with them over the phone while you troubleshoot. I'm literally elbows deep in the code and database, but you won't give me an account for security reasons. Ok, that makes complete sense.
Just went to my first Ruby Meetup in Lyon, FR 😍
It was so weird to actually meet people that fully understand why you love Ruby so much, since they love it too!
I'm so envious of the people whose job is to develop in this language, I really hope my next job will be about working with Rails too *.*1
I'm someone who's already been in the workforce for a year now while still being a student (which is pretty convenient as it pays for my school), and talking with a lot of my friends online or at school, most of them would love to have responsibilities, and I can't relate at all: for me, responsibilities are just a weight on my shoulders and a Damocles sword over the head, ready to fall when you fuck up. I don't want people to rely on me, not because I don't think I'm good enough, but because I don't want to be held responsible for anything at all. Just let me do my thing in my corner, thanks, I'm good.
I would love to hear insights about that topic!8
I'm 37, been a PHP Web Dev for 12 years. I love doing it but am concerned as I get older, I'm falling behind. I'm not exposed to different tech in my job but am doing courses to vary my skill set (AWS with Docker, vue.js etc)
Is anyone else here over 40 and doing dev work? Any obstacles you found? Or younger peeps, what’s your opinion of older devs? Should I be concerned?7
One's attitude towards something really affects your relationship with others.
I hate school so everyone at school thinks I'm this weird, anti-social freak.
I love programming...everyone in my programmer circle of friends and acquaintances sees me as this cheerful and social person.
devRant help me decide on something...
I feel like learning a new language but can't decide, I'm torn between Swedish (because I love Sabaton) and German (I have a character in my book who is german)...12
Any Django devs willing to give a guy a hand with some query management?
Trying to see how far it's possible to go with optimisation and such. I'm building out a lightweight CMS and would like it to be able to handle a lot of pages with as minimal query time as possible. The ORM is fantastic but if there's a better way that people have found I'd love to hear it.
Django 2.1 for reference.
Thanks in advance,
A Junior Pythonista
So, I'm using Vpython for my physics class.
The good thing is that I love that. The bad thing is that the last update to vpython was in 2015.
Well, I update my system yesterday and apparently one of the libraries got an API update and that broke Vpython and can't be used again T.T
I'm trying to fix the code at the moment ;-;1
Honestly, I love using the GUI and the terminal in combination when it comes to Git. I feel like I'm faster doing just general commits (hint ctrl+enter commits your work).
But I use the terminal when I start getting into the weeds, like checking out, resetting and doing stuff with my branches.1
I'm thinking of moving on from LineageOS. It's pretty good on my S3, but the battery life is laughable and there's some in built features missing I'd love to have.
Maybe make my own? I have trouble finding ROMs for my phone (that I like)7
I recently performed a huge refactoring effort on a Java project converting both the persistence and utility layers to Kotlin. Gotta say, I think I'm starting to fall in love with programming again!
Putting aside how pretty it is now, I've reduced those two layers by over 2400 lines of code
What are the best practices when making a blogging website?
I'm creating an addition to my personal website to include a blog, and want to follow the best practices for it. Do I just save everything in a JSON? Or do I just make every entry a "page" in Gatsby/React? What have you all done? Would love to see some examples.4
Come in to work, sit down at desk, coworker comes in. Tells me I'm going to potentially start crimping grounding wires for 40 racks. Shows me the email, I notice I'm not in the CC chain. I love not being in the know about work I may be doing that isn't in my job description.1
But hell, I love my Python8
Hello everyone. I'm new to programming and I would love some tips.
I have been told to learn C# and Java as a way to begin programming, what do you think of this?
If you have any better tips please explain it in a way an amateur can understand.
I hope that I explained my situation well.8
I really love freelancing and I'm getting a few projects here and there ,maybe once in a few months.but I'm currently studying so those few projects does financially reward me a bit. Is anyone here freelancing ,do you have any tips to get more projects.My projects are normally full Django applications and deployment, Web scraping scripts ,WordPress sites(yeah fml but some people want WordPress),Full websites with other various cms's.1
Love pattern matching, esp. in function clauses. No programming language can be considered feature rich without it. Yes, I'm looking at you, <mainstream programming language>1
Install Linux they said, it's better than a blue screen windows they said, THERE IS NO LINUX DRIVER OR NDISWRAP SUPPORT FOR MY WIFI ADAPTER I'M BASICALLY IN THE SAME BLOODY SPOT BUT WITH A PRETTIER TERMINAL! The reason for getting a blue screen in the first place was a bloody fucked up wifi driver!!!! I both love and hate you guys7
This screenshot is from when i first installed Ubuntu, i think 2 years ago.
I though well I'm not gonna be using it much, why bother giving it more than 30 gigs?
I instantly fell in love and this became my daily driver. Within 2 weeks this happened. So I did what any sane person would do. Deleted windows partition to make space for this lil fella. (I didn't have much hdd space)
I am a proud man4
Have any of you moved from Web application development to more deep and complex stuff? I mean without finding it boring. I just moved to data and analytics at my job. And in a few months we will be getting into AI and machine learning. I just don't know if I'm going to find it boring or not. I really enjoy and still love web development.1
Don't you love the neverending sprint?
You know the one that just inherits all the tickets from the last one? Each sprint packs on new cool features but along the way bug tickets come in for code you haven't even touched or wrote and you deal with them because they are blockers.
before you know it, sprint is over and ok to the next one. I'm pretty sure that is how this is supposed to work right?1
I was working as a lab tech/data analyst and wrote a bunch of macros to make my job less monotonous and decided I'd rather code all day than make graphs in Excel. A year-and-a-half later, I was 1 internship away from 2 associates degrees, so I quit my job and got the one I'm doing now. I love the work, but wish they'd pay me more.
A couple of friends were trying to convince me that I'm not satisfied with my job because I don't earn 6 figures and don't love it. But it pays the bills. It's interesting projects lately. Very low stress. I have pretty good friends where I'm at. Super casual too. Generally speaking I am happy here. I sometimes wonder if they might be projecting their unhappiness on to me.
Personal projects, sports and fun with friends/family in my spare time are my real passions.1
Currently in my last year of application development (actually 90% web dev) and I'm going to pass this year.
After this I want to go to a higher school and I can pick computer science or software engineering.
I am completely lost, which one should I pick? Why?
I really love development, but I hear lots of great things about CS...
Do you guys have any input?1
My head solves each problem with a logic base thinking process, I tend to be awful talking in my main language but great in English, don't have patience to stupid people with stupid questions, learned that most of my friend have great ideas and think that I would love to work for free as long as I'm coding
Wtf. Why is using mail templates in nodejs so complicated in comparison to eg Laravel?!?! I have to install 3 packages with 20+ dependencies and setting it up is a hell -.- I'm losing my love for node since I got to know laravel3
I just want know as much as I can.
I started with Web-Development in front-end, continued with back-end and then headed over to game-development. I'm just doing things, that interest me. My next dev area probably will be application-development.
I love being student! (but I know that, when I'm older, I have to decide...)
Im fckin in love with parse-server!!!
How easily she configured and run smoothly behind my backend makes me want to marry her.
And I'm amazed with the fact she's not popular
Hi fellow DevRanters! I've been studying software engineering for a while now and, while I love programming, I'm starting to think that all I'll be doing as a software engineer now a days is pulling data from a database, sticking it in a nice gui with some buttons and moving on to the next, similar, project. At the same time I am loving linux more and more, I love working with bash and other unix-like tools and I am interested in systems languages like C and Rust. It is for these reasons that I am playing with the idea of switching to Systems and network engineering. What are your thoughts on this? Is Systems and network engineering a field in which I get to program a lot? Will there be more variation in it? Is my view of software engineering completely off? Please share your thoughts and opinions!
I love to sleep a lot and can't stay up too late.
I love cooking meals that take a long time to make.
I love video games, books, TV shows and exercising at the gym.
But I also love software development, and I fear I can't enjoy both worlds.
All of my freelance developer friends always stay up late and never have time for anything. In one hand I'm very jealous of their programming skills and wish I had these too. But I fear I will lose my life to it.
Can I still be a developer and have a life?2
I love to hack stuff. And the first time I did change some code and had a behavioral change in the game WAS AWESOME.
I can create stuff.
I'm a fucking practitioner of tech voodoo, a computer whisperer!! Awesome!
I'm in a GoToMeeting with a client right now and her baby is screaming into the microphone. Boy, I sure do love working with clients.1
What do you do when you're trying to push yourself further by learning new concepts and techniques but start to feel the burnout closing in?
Usually I'm useless for about week if I push myself too hard. Would love to overcome this.
How do you guys handle this?4
I'm dying when I see a span of code out there in the wild, mixed with everything else. `Can we have some backtick love?`
This is a site for developers. Halp!
Not that i am just in this for the money but how do i start making money from what i know? I'm sick of my car wash job, they hired me because i wanted to help them get there website to a better standard but that's not what they'ed had me doing. Now i just work at this dumb car wash.
Please, how do i sustain a income from this thing that i really love to do?1
I've just seen work offer in my city for junior unity developer. I'd love to work as a game dev (and currently am finishing my first "real" game in this engine) but I feel too anxious to send my CV.
Also for some weird reason I feel attachment and loyalty to my current employer, even though I'm more often pissed about working there than not. Stockholm Syndrome?6
Cats and dogs - I interact with both in my uni and love both of them (yea well guess which one of them actually reciprocates the love).
I'm kinda having a tough time deciding which one do I keep in my Avatar.
@dfox please add an option with both of 'em fuckers3
!rant but I'd like some advice.
This summer I'm taking a brief course on programming, very generic and mostly just to get it officially on paper, and as of what I can tell a lot of it will be stuff I'm familiar with. Basic syntax, loops, logic, good practices, etc.
However, I get to choose the language I get to work in myself. I assume they have a set of the most commonly used ones (couldn't find a list of them though) and I was wondering if anyone had advice on which to pick?
I already have a base of decent JS and Python, but I feel like it might be good to pick something other than Python? Because even though I love it to bits, I do realize that it's not the optimal language in all situations. What I'm pondering is Java or one of the C-languages, but again, I'm not one of the pros here. Any recommendations?4
Hi Hi fellow devs and sysadmins hiding in the dark,
In august of next year I need to do my final internship for my IT Management Study in The Netherlands. My study level is between the US Community College and Associate Degree.
As you can see from the tags I'm looking for a International internship as I'm looking for experience and a challenge but its annoying and pretty hard to find something on the internet due to all of the places that "help you find a place" that ask 4.5 EUR.
So I wanted to ask you guys for help, I'm looking as you can guess for a IT Management internship and I have a slight preference to Asia(With very big preference to Japan) due to interest in the culture.
If you guys know of any places in your company or other places I would love to hear and if you have tips please share them.

What is your preferred IDE?
I feel the most comfortable in Visual Studio and have heard from many others that VS is their IDE of choice, but I've also heard other people shame VS users and opt for something like Notepad++ or even no IDE at all, just a basic text editor. Granted, I'm not gonna back down from VS, I love it, but I really want to hear what other people like to use?13
You just have to love users, especially when you work in an environment where politics dictate database constraints and application rules.
"Can you pull tax info for x, y, and z."
Nope, I could if the stuff was entered into the database properly but until standardized I can't do much. Here are the numbers I have, use them or don't but I'm not fabricating data for you for a tax form.
Man I love django so far, but django.forms module is such a pain in the ass sometimes, why can't you be more intuitive? I think I'm gonna make my forms in HTML this time and process data with a function based view1
Hey guys! hope everyone is doing very well this week! and as always i really hope everyone has an amazing week ahead!, i would like to ask a question i am soooo stuck in my project and i need help!, so i have a line chart in my project... the graph shows but the lines do not?, i'm using angular and ionic!, i'm also receiving no errors in my console! :-(
i would love some input from you guys <3 would really mean alot!, thank you once again for taking the time to read my question!
kind regards Milo :-)3
I always love when I pick C again just for fun. I'm really used to "print" something if I'm not sure about that in basically everything.
You wanna print something in C? Well unless you know what and where it is (no point of print-checking then), it'll just happily crash without any reported error. Not to mention if I wanna find a bug, I don't have to get a debugger! Printf alone is basically a breakpoint! Ah stupid me :D
I'm in love with the multiple cursor
And with the thing that you can right click +Ctrl vars/classes/files/functions
And it will take you to them/to where they are mentioned
As much as I love my job and the people here I need more money to make it worth my while as I'm barely breaking even at this point. Any one interviewing full stack devs in Houston?8
Just found out about HookTube and Mastodon (I'm @digitaldina) and I was wondering if anyone else knows some good Dev/security related apps/sites that are useful? Also, I'm tinkering with app dev now and I'm wondering if any of you would recommend starting out using Firebase? Is it any good?
Please let me know in the comments I'd love to find out :)7
So I'm currently working for a school as an IT person. I love my job but it's only part time and low wage. I also go to college 2 classes a semester.
I love what I'm doing and I love the team I work with but it can also be extremely stressful (beginning of school year). I also don't know where there is to go in terms of advancement other than going full time.
Although I don't want too I'm thinking about looking at other jobs again and trying to see if I can find something better. But at the same time I'm earning a pension at the school and I'm really enjoying what I do except for the stress.
Anyone have any thoughts on this? What should I do? Should I stay? Should I leave? Or should I stay but work on my open source contributions and hope that those earn me a better job in development?2
[Want to Ask]
Some times ago I read about ikigai (http://theviewinside.me/what-is-you...). Yet I'm still not sure what I want to do for the rest of my life. I'm a teacher. I love teaching programming. But lately I'm not sure anymore.
I know, this `ikigai` or `purpose-of-life` thing would be very different among individuals.
In case of you don't mind, and in case of you already find a single thing answering these 4 questions:
– What is something you love doing?
– That the world needs?
– That you are good at?
– And that you can be paid for?
Please, share your answer by commenting this rant.
Hell yeah, I love that feeling! I have absolutely no idea about working with the LEMP stack (nginx in particular) and I'm slowly figuring out how to get it working. Even tho I just noticed that chrome doesn't support npn for http/2 and that I am still up (GMT+1) I wanna continue working in this project. Man, I love that feeling <31
1. I love using it for automation and creation of new stuff
2. I'm a visual thinker and working with abstract things. The process of thinking about a program and developing it is especially rewarding and exciting for me
3. I especially like using it in relation with Maths for algorithms and scheduling, which is tightly related to (2), but also to the fact that I love Maths
Recently I've finally finished my first game in Unity3D <3 But I'm self-taught and it's probably not really well-made. I'd love to show code to someone with real experience but I don't have any friends in game dev -.-
Does anyone know where I could get some kind of code review (for free would be great, since I won't earn a penny from this game)?
Shameless plug for anyone interested:
Bought a new Small Netbook recently.
Wanted to install Linux, because Yeah, working with Linux All the time and I'm " in love" with it ;)
But ... it's not working properly.. No Sound, some keys aren't supported and some other Shit that arent working as expected.
Shit. Tried everything, multiple times, the Hardware is not really compatible with Linux. Damn, this is the only shit about Linux..
Yeah, I'm now so desperated, that I've Just installed Windows 10.
My only hope - the new bash/Power Shell. Does anybody has made some (good) experience with it?9
Anyone know of tutorials which use...unconventional project premises? Usually you see To-do apps, sample blogs, and other such generic offerings. Not that those are bad, but I'm interested in finding more outlandish, unconventional examples. Like, say, developing a mock GUI for a spacefaring vessel.
I'm personally interested in examples pertaining to React, VueJS, and Laravel, but if it fits the outlandish and unusual criteria I'd love to see it all the same!3
Man I love composer, I really do, but sometimes, I wish it would just bloody download and load in the extensions for PHP for me... I know, I'm the laziest dev around, but typing php-curl is a lot of work 😡
The moment when I stay overnight at office to finish installation and deployment of several applications in the Linux server.
At noon, project leader said, we should use Windows server. And then I officially completed a full day entertaining the demand.
I'm glad I love my jobs.2
I was just curious about this: how many of you guys uses emacs/vim? Is it your main editor or just for quick editing? Any specific reason besides familiarity?
I ask this because I'm a late adopter of emacs. It is my quick editor (I use jetbrains IDEs). Fell in love with mu4e and twitter-mode, but org-mode was the deal breaker.3
My boss (in a good way). Both in my workplace and out of the work place. He's given me a lot of fantastic opportunities to learn on his time. He has encouraged me to do so because he saw my passion and love for programming. I'm incredibly lucky and blessed beyond belief to have him as a friend, and my manager.
He's the Senior Director of Network Services. So anything dealing with networking he's in charge of.
Two weeks and my internship is finally over... I do nothing all day, but gosh what I would love to do nothing at home! I began learning Python and Astronomy but in reality I'm supposed to be coding the website... I don't know what my boss do all day but he is never in the office so I consider that he doesn't work either. Anyway wish me luck because it's going to be two loooong weeks!2
Okay I'm completely lost on how to do this so I'm about to write the most complicated work around I've ever thought of just to get this demo done before my internship ends next week
I both love and hate the BBC microbit
P.s. Anyone know when they'll be commercially available in the U.S???
I can and will complain about my dev job til I'm blue in the face.
However, nothing compares to the feeling I get when MVP lurches to life from its slab. I feel like a mad scientist and I love it.
I love serverless functions but I'm so tired of complex orchestration, juggling event parameters and now scipy+numpy+pandas exceeds size limit of 250MB..
Feel like cramming it all in a monolith like the geezers of yore and be done with it3
I haven't coded a new project in a long time. I want to build something, show it to the world and hope people use it. I love webapps as I'm pretty experienced in this, and have a huge interest for smart homes, internet of things, twilio, innovative payments and more. What could my MVP be?
hey you, yeah, you my friend who uses terminal, I'm sure you have already made some useful scripts right? wouldn't you like to share those ideas of your in the comments below? I'd love to steal them 😈😂4
I'm a pre-final year student, have recently bagged a summer internship in Microsoft (will begin after 10 months) , since I've got a lot of time in my hand I'm trying to explore the options I have ahead, it could be Enterprenuership, could be Machine Learning, could be open-source, could be research.
I would love to have some career advice, or just your thoughts on how you would choose if given a chance to be at my place, I know it's me who'll have to choose finally, but I'm seriously in need of some help.
I would like to ask you guys (and girls) for your opinion on finding a job. I made a website chagaifriedlander.cf and I'll post my resume in the comments.
I'm just finishing studying computer science and I'd love program something for Android, but I'm also open for anything else. My favourite place would be Switzerland but I'm open to working anywhere. I would like to work in a team at the beginning because a I need to gain some experience and b I just don't like working alone to much.5
Hey guys - I hope everyone is doing very well as always - I'd love to know , on My Ubuntu is it possible to make modifications of my system through Code? - Perhaps i need to download the part I'm interested in making modifications to? any suggestions or recommendations you'd make as to how you would do that? thank you all once again!
Or maybe its not such a good idea for a beginner to be doing such things?
