To all newbie developers,
Before you ask a doubt about an issue to someone else,
Try doing an initial investigation to find the root cause,
Look into the logs,
Find the stack trace,
Have breakpoints and try to debug.
You come to me with a weird NullPointerException and ask me why,
Without even looking into the logs once? We ain't God bro.13
Manager: How to make successful product?
CEO: Just Add words like Machine learning and Ai
Newbie developers: Takes 10$ udemy course without statistical and probabilistic knowledge, after 1 week believes himself to have "Expertise in ML,AI and DL"
HR: Hires the newbie

Universitys need to change how they handle experienced developers trying to get a degree.
To be honest, I'm 16 in Highschool and would class myself as a junior dev. I have been talking to the "Careers Councilor" and she claims I will have to pay the full amount for a cs degree although I probably won't attend 99% of the lectures in the first year.
I understand it would be incredibly hard to work out how a experienced person should pay in comparison to a newbie. Could it be based on the lectures you attend but then again it would make a degree less valuable.
In my country (New Zealand) the first year of University is free but will this be waisted?
I know I want to branch off into networking and maybe hardware so could I do that while the class learns Scratch, HTML, CSS and actually how to code?
I would love your opinions and if anyone knows some other options that would be great, thanks!13
My best developer just accepted an offer at a corporation. Now it’s just me and the newbie with enough work flowing in to keep me busy for a year including custom app builds for freikan Disney!
I’ve never had to tackle the hiring process myself like this but I need advice for finding all around fantastic developers who can tackle whatever new thing is thrown at them.11
Does anyone work on a team with multiple stacks?
For example we have batch jobs in Java but also have a JS front-end and APIs.
How do you divide the developers and the work across these projects?
Currently everyone does everything but I feel like this is inefficient and hard to develop expertise. And different people or even the same person will make the same mistakes over and over again because they don't know how to do X or they forget or overlook some quirk. When I switched Beck to JS took me like a week to get a Promises nailed down again. And this morning someone else had a production bug and couldn't figure it out. But when I looked at the code I could pretty much see where an issue could be (uncaught exception in a promise)
Also the testing frameworks are very different and there's a lot of infrastructure technical debt, things that really should've been done a long time or fixed but no one had the time or expertise to do it or notice it (until it causes a production issue and then everyone is like WTF is happening??!!!!).
I'm not the manager but I always feel that the team needs to be split along the language lines and specific people need to own these projects to review and code changes for all these common newbie errors. And also developer enough expertise to foresee problems before it becomes a production issue.9
Anyone have one of the new MacBook Pros with Touchbar? I'm looking for some project ideas to work on.
I already am working on a project for the Pi-hole project (network wide ad-blocking) but I am looking for some other good ideas. I think Apple's view of the Touchbar fell short, but as developers I think it opens up a lot of possibilities to use it as a great information/monitoring tool.
I am also still learning Objective-C and Swift so I am a newbie.6
Around the time Apple was denouncing it, I joined a chatroom for Adobe flash game developers. I really loved the idea of making games too, so I tried to learn ActionScript3. That failed, because it was my first language and since I was broke, I couldn't afford flash pro, so I was using an open source ide with okay documentation, but no newbie coder tutorials. I didn't actually start learning to code till Codecademy came out, I learned js, then I learned visual basic and Java for online courses the local community college had available, and now I'm taking C, C++, Java, and Python in college while I use C# at work and JS during my free time. Sadly, in a jack of all trades, master of none :/1
We started a group chat few years ago to help newbie developers be upto current industry standards.
So we have this guy who's been in the gc since God knows when but still likes PHP and WordPress.
I feel like we have failed.10
So, is it just me or are the numbers of newbie developers who can actually read error messages dwindling?
Any corona developers out there? I'm a newbie and trying to create an application which helps students to interact each other/communicate each other, my question is: Have you created something like this? Can you help me or give me some tips? Thank you so much!1
I just got myself working with the worst developers I could ever know, they don't know nothing about dry, kiss principles... They built an entire platform using Zend framework but they don't used mvc layers right and there is no backend validation most of the time, besides many other true newbie developer problems. I just came to this job and from and Rb/Python background and I can't live with this piece of code. They have 20+ years in the market while I'm just a guy with 5 or 6 years. What should I do if I can't convince the startup owners they are bad as hell waste of money?1
