So after months of lurking, I decided to join devRant too! Even though I'm not really a ranter, I hope I can share some funny or interesting stuff with you sometimes :-)14
hey everyone, I'm new to Dev rant. not quite sure what to say. so i guess I'll just observe.
When Java is your first language and you are learning python as your second: 90% of errors due to your fingers automatically adding ; at the end of every line of code. :/10
I'm a newbie in programming, just past the very basics and all. Which is why I am a bit frustrated when i see programmers use stack overflow. I barely even understand it.😏9
Hey all, this is my first post here, and this rant is mostly towards myself. I did a stupid.
I wanted to make a new cool game for a gamejam. I've had this idea of making an 3D RPG (you probably can see where this is going) so I thought I would continue on it during the jam, trying to make as much stuff as possible.
When I started, I realized that it's too much work to get anything cool done during the jam, so I ditched the idea and began to planning on a roguelike. It didn't really feel like my thing, so I passed that too. The mistake here was that I barely tried.
Then I was thinking of making a 2D RPG and started planning on it. I was an idiot and bought a 20e asset for it.. Then I realized that it would take too much time, too, and I had wasted money. Ugh.
Cue panic, where I go through all three ideas, devoting a lot of time into each one of them, then moving to the next, then I panic more. I was an idiot, very tired idiot.
Then I remembered the magic words: "Keep the scope small!" and decided that I will make that roguelike game. I delved more into it, found a python+libtcod tutorial for it and began reading and coding.
If I had realised that earlier, I would have done good progress on that roguelike, but instead I wasted time and money on something unachievable.. Well, I learned that I should always start small. It cost me multiple headaches, money and all around bad feels.
So don't do the same mistakes as I did. Just keep the scope small.
Hopefully this was a good first post, haha. And sorry for any spelling/grammar mistakes, English isn't my first language. Thanks for reading!
PS. I've been working on that roguelike a lot lately and I'm having so much fun. After this is done, I'll make something with that asset I bought so the money won't go totally wasted.9
10 Hours straight.
I thought a simple list in Android isn't a big thing, because I have made some css. I was so wrong.3
I'm a coder student that make some small projects for customer in the free time.
The actual one hired me for a small program in c++ but he needed it finished in max a week.
I wrote all the logic in 4 day and then I asked for the final design UI to finish it but after 10 days i'm still waiting for an answer to my mails...
Yesterday i wrote him on WhatsApp...
He blue-checked my mex...
In the next days I will hunt him at work to get some explaination...2
when you check your mobile each 5 min to see whether you have new up votes/comments on your latest 'rant' and you're like 'just checking the time' 😅😅1
Just a lost soul trying to get enough points to build an avatar, anyone? And be friends as well, maybe.7
I’m just new here...
Don’t know why I made an account here, just to read a single post, but yeah...
I’m a big Pokémon fan by the way...8
I'm about to be a Web Developer. Our bootcamp is about to end tomorrow. More sleepless nights for me then.
