Search - "i legit don't get it"
Udemy courses are targeted at ABSOLUTE beginners. It's excruciating to pull through and finish the course "just because". And some of these courses are jam-packed with 30-60 hours just for them to appear legit, but the reality is the value you get could be packed to 3-5 hours.
You're better off just searching for or watching for the things that you need on Google or YouTube.
You'll learn more when building the actual stuff. Yes, it's good to go for the documentation. Just scratch the "Getting Started" section and then start building what you want to build already. Don't read the entire documentation from cover to cover for the sake of reading it. You won't retain everything anyway. Use it as a reference. You'll gain wisdom through tons of real-world experience. You will pick things up along the way.
Don't watch those tutorials with non-native English speakers or those with a bad accent as well. Native speakers explain things really well and deliver the message with clarity because they do what they do best: It's their language.
Trust me, I got caught up in this inefficient style a handful of times. Don't waste your time.9
Completely 100% not dev related.
But really I need the opinion of smarter people. Tell me how I don't make fun of the way people look, talk down on others regardless of <whatever>. Try to be as nice as possible to everyone, but the moment I say that I am not attracted to overweight people (women in my case since I am a heterosexual male) am I suddenly fatphobic and hate fat people. First of, phobia means fear, and I can assure people that fat people don't trigger any fear response from my end.
Nor do I disregard them as humans just cuz of them extra kilos. But suddenly because I explain how I can't be sexually attracted to someone that is overweight am I fatphobic?
This shit baffles me.54
I get an email. "DeathToBrewDevs" replied to an issue I opened forever ago.
Read the reply and it's a diss, mentions and all. I go to the issue in order to disrespect him back, reply is gone; deleted by mods.
Alright then, so can I look up this guy and read his code so I can inform myself on what a proper engineer is? I mean since it's my legit-ness he's questioning, I would really like to know how legit *he* is.
Ah! But no results, no profile, no repos, no code; no nothing. The sucker's gone. What, you made an alt to shit-talk mother fucking Liebranca and couldn't even come up with a decent insult before deleting it? What a fucking cunt.
You know, I don't mind random people trying to mess with me but when you do it like this it really does take away the fun.
See, I don't hide my shit. I have no need for that; you can look me up, find my shitposts, find my profiles, read my support questions, read my code, try it out, see my bugs, see my hacks, and even take a snapshot of my fucking face. I don't mind people knowing who I am because I'm proud of who the fuck that is.
More importantly, if you want to talk shit I'm right there for you to do just that; and if you want a flamewar we can have one, bitch.
Get on my fucking level, then we can talk.
For now: into the trashbin you go.
the one who mallocs.
