Non dev co-workers: Dude add us on Facebook.
Me: I don't have Facebook.
Non dev co-workers: Instagram?
Me: I don't use Instagram.
Non dev co-workers: Oook, what about Twitter?
Me: I deactivated my account permanently long ago.
Non dev co-workers: Huh? So what the heck are you always looking at on your phone laughing and stuff?
Non dev co-workers: Huh?
Me: DEVRANT!! (*shows them devRant*)
Non dev co-workers: What the heck is that?
One of the co-workers: guys, he's a hacker.
Me: *face palm*5
My guide to know if your startup is failing:
My Qualifications: Every startup I've joined has failed. Not necessarily because of me.
For the sake of me typing faster, x=startup.
1) X doesn't have a product, but just an idea that x keeps pitching as the next "big thing". (What's with this shit anyway?)
2)X keeps changing products, One day your designing IoT sex toys and the next day your building a self aware AI. For some reason, the people at X saw Silicon Valley or that meme about how Instagram was created and thought "Fuck that happens to every moron who can switch on a computer."
3) Even worse, X keeps changing industries.
4) X keeps lying to you, your marginal user base and seems overall unethical. (You should leave at this point.)
5) X wants to target some obscure and very specific market and keeps pitching the company along the following lines
<famous_company> for <random_market>
Eg: "Yo bro it's like Amazon but for necrophiles."
6)X keeps saying that X is the next big thing. (X is not and I can't emphasize this point enough.)
What you should realize is this is my general observation and some or all of these points may not apply to every situation.
Sorry for typos and any other stuff.11
So apparently devRant is a problem in my life. As those of you who've read any of my stuff here know I work at Victoria's Secret. So two of my friends come in just before I was ending my shift to see what the plans were for tonight. The usual - hit the club, crash at one of our houses.
Thing is, I was scrolling through devRant when they walked up. (the below is paraphrased)
Friend1: Ugh, you're still on that thing?
Friend2: Is she really? <looks over my shoulder>
Friend2: I don't get it. <pokes me in the left tit> You barely post on Instagram and you don't tweet anymore. And you haven't commented on any of my posts in like days. Wtf bitch?
Disclaimer: Yes, we are those girls who talk like that and go clubbing and dress up and makeup and all that shit. Don't judge me because I don't give a fuck. Anyway...
Me: Really? We're doing this? Because I haven't posted on fucking Instagram? I talk to you every day. I see you every other day. I like coding. I like tech. This place is awesome and the people are cool. If I want to see your ass or your outfit, I can just look at you. I don't need to be on Instagram 24/7.
Friend2: Jeez bitch. Need a tampon
<we all laugh>
Me: This is my thing. It doesn't mean we aren't friend and we won't chill, but my future is in development and technology. So deal hoes.
Friend1: Ugh you're such a nerd.
Me: And you're both like totally vapid sluts. But I love you.
Friend1: Totes jelly. Girl you need some vitamin D
Me: I'm sayin'. But that doesn't mean I won't spend my free time coding.
Friend2: Ugh alright we don't give a fuck. Code or whatever. Just be ready at 11.
We all flip each other the bird and they leave. I guess if that's the level of acceptance I can get from my wonderful, gorgeous, annoying, amazing, asshole best friends, I'll take it. I am not changing my path.74
Normal people post selfies on Instagram and get comments like "omg so sexy 😘"
Developers post stuff like this in devRant and get comments like "omg so sexy 😎":4
Instagram coding pics are so fucking cringe worthy....like for real man. A picture of a simple cpp loop, or averyfuckingbasic Express hello world in some hipster filter with inspirational quotes and everyone looses their shit for it.
Instagram people are so easy.12
You know I used to always think machines are stupid.
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning can never beat humans.
I hated fancy tech and companies like Google thinking they did bad stuff.
My mindset was very different back in 2013 to 2016 (my first stint at devRant).
Over the years and countless experiences with humans and tech, today I am a very different person.
Today.. I ABSOLUTELY FUCKING HATE HUMANS AND FEEL I AM SURROUNDED BY FUCK NUTS.
There is no match to Natural Stupidity.
Now that I am promoted and have to herd sheeps, I realised how much dumb humans are.
The attention to details is something that doesn't exist along with the ability to listen and understand their basic task.
Rather these morons are egoistic who not only back answer with intention to insult you.
They absolutely overlook the fact that you are talking in their favour and benefit.
Now I value the accurate and timely delivery of a machine without much cost and efforts to setup.
Here I spend 3 fucking days to explain a simple Apple to Apple task and no deliveries at all. Dafaq do you expect me to do here? Why shouldn't I employ a robot and let you starve when you bring no skills to table and crib like a baby when I give you an honest feedback?
I agree some companies are bad. I agree there are good and skilled people. I agree exceptions are there everywhere.
But the fact that majority is just stinking waste makes me wonder how did humans evolve and survive so many years.
Average IQ is less than that of a Avocado.
Media has romanticised fancy tech and stupid Instagram trends which makes you wonder why are progressing as human race.
At times, it's better to not do things at all then do it wrong.
At times, the world doesn't deserve good.
In the end, everything is just as stupid as you and me.
And it doesn't even matter.41
A fucking rant to me from myself.
I want to take control of my life. I want to fucking change my life. Want to move my lazyass and want to work on myself. Want to build awesome stuff want to help others want to change something for good. Want to learn new stuffs want to learn new skills want to travel want to go see new place want to know about other countries and learn about their culture and want to tell them "we are fucking humans stop finding stupid reason to hate each other for literally any fucking small reasons. Stop fighting yes there are bad guys, really fucking bad guys who deserves to die. Then kill them and finish the matter stop fucking keep making complicated and keep involving more and more. There are little kids who keep dying and need our helps it's feel so helpless sometimes and we sitting on sofa eating popcorn and complying about government there are kids in every country who don't even fortunate enough to have basic human needs and there are people who fucking throw food over there mood. A fucking Mood. Gosh I hate people sometimes so much.
Don't know why fucking writing all this on a Devrant supposed to talk about our devshit but couldn't control more.
A introvert don't got many friends to talk this shit and most of them worrying about there Instagram followers fuck this shit .
And here I am fucking trying really hard to pass on fucking useless boring exams for fucking degree which doesn't speck about your skills or show to the world anything besides you are good at memorizing shit.6

I feel as if my friends from school are dropping me one by one and it's boiling down to my IT friends. I really like my friends and stuff but they're treating me like I'm invisible so I'm not posting this on instagram, not on twitter, and I'm not texting this to anyone, because I'm really starting to realize how big of an impact the life of IT studies has on me, and how amazing the community is. Thank each and every one of you for simply being here on devRant and I appreciate all of you.12
I wish this becomes the reality.
I remember someone on devRant (who kind of was an insider or knew some stuff) mentioned this thing long long ago on how Facebook is creating a profile for everyone.
I am tired of my idiot ‘friends’ asking me if I can hack Facebook Instagram etc. because some other idiot made them mad. Like fuck no. 1 it’s unethical as hell 2 it’s illegal I don’t want to go to jail. 3 I’m learning cyber security NOT hack stuff because someone hurt your useless feelings.
Ohhh and they always get pissed off when I explain everything wrong with their idiotic request10
This is my first startup. Well, kinda.
This tool suggests you when it’s better to post on Instagram and it also allows you to pick some hashtags. You can copy them just one tap away!
It doesn’t store your data. It has no backend, so your privacy is cared about :D
It’s better when installed as PWA!
Built in just one day. Producthunt and all the other good stuff is upcoming.
I was flash developer once, it was great when macromedia was around, then adobe acquired them, now flash is gone.
Years are passing and most of industry is the same as always. Trying to drag you into this rat race of learning new amazing technologies, amazing projects that are actually doing same job as 50 years ago but using more memory and cpu cycles. Because all has it’s roots in algorithms from previous centuries.
So youngsters loose your best life time, be innovative by doing nothing more then copy paste from stackoverflow and duck typing shitty code.
Be a slave and sit in the amazing office, that has everything but not your real life that meanwhile is sucked by corporate squeezer till your last breath.
Be piece of shit that can be kicked around.
Watch youtube, facebook, instagram or whatever social network that shows you pictures that are fooling your mind that you’re someone special and you need this stuff.
Then be ready to suck some dicks to earn money and buy stuff you don’t need, live where you don’t want and do what you don’t like. You piece of shit.
Well that’s what disappoints me from my tech stack.
Now chill out, turn off your electronic gadgets, go out and enjoy real world.1
You know, I am astonished at the number of people here that use(d) Facebook. It's even more amazing that these same people are actually surprised that all this shit happened with their data.
I don't have a Facebook account, or Instagram, or Twitter, etc. When this stuff first started coming out, people kept telling me to sign up for accounts.
I refused, telling them that I didn't want to give my private information to a third party that I didn't even know. And not only that, but they can use the private information about you in any way they wish and also sell it to third parties.
I was of course told to take off my tinfoil hat... and it's only now that people are realizing that they are giving away potentially private information to people they don't know?
If I came to your door and asked you everyday to send everything you did that day to me so that I could file it away and use it as I please, you would probably tell me to get the hell off your property.
It just blows me away that if you put that same offer in the format of a website, suddenly people are begging to give you their data.
It's fucking lunacy... 😞3
I wonder if people would still post pics on Instagram if Instagram hid the number of likes..
I wonder if people would still buy branded clothes if every item of all the brands both big and small were sold at same rate..
I wonder if people would still pursue their current career (jobs) if all the jobs in the world gave equal wages to every employee..
I wonder if people would still donate if they were not allowed to tell anyone about it or post their contribution on social media..
I wonder if people would still by fairness creams and stuff if we removed the mindset of superiority of whiter tones over the darker ones..
Sometimes , i just wonder...9
How to make money with technology when you're dumb as a fuck and barely able to spell your own name:
1) come up with idea: le IoT device that logs rats fart pressure/density into influxdb and pours stats into AWS redshift then dumps them through tensorflow to predict the rise of bat sandwiches on the stock market in order to decide whether governments should hire more medical staff using your cousin's sideline app business
2) snort some coke with your HS buddy whose dad is filthy rich
3) he gets you in front of the line @ local VC with your brilliant idea
4) automatically get $109385674891203475 in venture capital
5) start hiring all your friends as CTO, CFO, C-sucking-your-ass-hairs-O
6) rent a $1975812390578 office, stuff it all with macs and stupid quotes on the walls
7) buy a lambo to get some more bimbos chewing the business end of your appendix
7.5) by now you get free coke from everyone so no need to call your dealer anymore
8) hire a hot-ass secretary to remember you to go snort some coke to this old HS buddy of yours who's been calling about some app that measures used tampons.
Et voila, ladies, you got on the front page, $50M tucked away, pics of hot bitches half naked in your central park penthouse all over instagram, AND you get in all college kids' wet dreams which pretty much guarantees an unlimited supply of hardworking malnourished interns ready to suck your toes just so they can take a fucking selfie in front of your office building.
I really wanted this to be an angry rant but I just realized that I am 19 and am absolutely unable to handle even miniscule amounts of stress without going apeshit. Got my resting pulse measured a few times by a doctor and it's 90. And I exercise regularly and go running. I just want to live in peace on a mountain somewhere, modern live is just pure poison for me. Thank God I don't use Twitter or Instagram or any of that stuff. It'd kill me in a year.5
Recently in Instagram followed a tag #coding and #programming.
I get shitty post unrelated to #coding and #programming are you getting that stuff as well?
And why am I getting provocative pictures of lady coders?15
Now the phone I'll be taking on vacation is broken, again. I paid for a new LCD just a few weeks ago and it's broken, again. I usually don't send electronics for repair. Sometimes it costs more to repair than to buy a new one but I really liked that one.
I barely even touched it after it was repaired because the battery has gotten bad too and I was planning to send it for repair again, but for the batteries. See how desperate I am to revive it? That's dedication beyond logic but the repair guy said I must have dropped it. I didn't, but then again why would he believe me? Hell, why would I believe him?
Whatever. I should probably get a real camera anyway. I just need to push myself harder to work on a sideline so stuff like this doesn't touch my savings. I overheard some of the technician's customers asking if he can <insert automation here>. Some are as dumb as Instagram bots to help their friend win a beauty pageant and others are more business-like. At least I got something out of that "social activity". Maybe I can make money out of this. I have a few scripts that I don't even bother pushing to my repositories. Who knew such garbage can mean something to someone?
Fuck this month. Be done with it already. I need more money.11
Around a year ago I got drunk, watched half of True Detective s01 over the night, and posted stuff like this to Instagram Stories.
I don't have access to alcohol right now :/7
Took few weeks break from coding, social media and stuff like that. And holy cow things have changed. Over 9k new rants here, bunch of new js frameworks, Instagram got some security issues..
I'm just amazed.7
Instagram "personal brand revolving code" checklist:
1. Quirky Hello World captions
2. Always has a mug of coffee
3. Code in background (usually HTML) with a pop open terminal showing the file directory to show that they know how to use the command line.
4. quirky pseudocode (usually a while loop) on there shirt.
5. Starting aimlessly on a laptop in places that don't make sense to work.
Seriously, Instagram is the worst place to have your personal brand for stuff like this.
