Client: Is your code functional?
Dev: Well, it's not. It's imperative. Object oriented and a bit procedural.
Client: Well, make it functional
Dev: [learning haskell]8
Hired a new backend Dev. He writes a script and sends it for testing...
Tester: "It's not working..."
Backend Dev: Goes to Mongo and deletes the tester's whole profile...
I cant control my laughter every time I remember this incident...He claimed it was a mistake, I don't think that it was a mistake...the tester had it coming...
"It's not working" that's all he says every time...I mean at least give me something to start with...!5
Dev: this task is done, can I put it in review and do something else?
Me: sure, of course.
Dev: cool, just be aware I'll make some changes to it later.
Me: ... wait, then it's not done.
Dev: no it is, I just need to re-read it and make some changes.
Me: yeah, so it will be done when those changes are made.
Dev: but I don't know what those changes are.
Me: ... I get that ... but ... ok I'm extremely confused. Why do you think it's done.
Dev: because I've written everything I need to and I'm happy with it.
Me: ok so why do you want to make changes.
Dev: I don't.
Me: ... ... ... ... you ... you are really not being clear. If you don't want to make changes, and you are happy with it, why are you planning on making changes later ... after marking the task as done.
Dev: well if I re-read it and see something I don't like, I would like to change it.
Me: ok, so re-read it as many times as you like and make as many changes as you like. But don't mark it as done until it is done.
Dev: but it is done.
Me: no it's not.
Dev: it is, look.
Me: ... yeah looks ok at a quick glance.
Dev: ok so I can mark it as done?
Me: are you going to make more changes?
Me: then no.
Me: BECAUSE ITS NOT DONE.
Dev: ok maybe I'm not explaining it clearly.
Me: ... we can both agree on that. Ok so to summarise, we don't mark something as done until we have stopped touching it. We don't half finish something and say it's done and comeback to it later. We mark it as done when we are happy with i.....
Dev: but I am happ.....
Me: *raises hand* I repeat, if it's done, we lock it away and stop touching it. If someone reads it and complains, we can come back to it with a new ticket. But it's not done until we think we are ready to send it on.
Dev: I am ready to send it, I just may want to change it.
Me: ... ... ... ... ... due to a new policy implemented just now, we are only allowed to send 1 email to a person each week. So unfortunately we can only send on 1 copy. So when you have that 1 copy, let me know.
Dev: ok, let me re-read it a few more times then.
Me: there you go.32
note: Not the worst dev I've interviewed but worst I've worked with.
A guy who worked in my company before me "HARDCODED" the entire calendar for next 10 years starting 2016 in dictionaries and arrays in Python for a project.13
We recently hired a fronted dev and she got confident enough to suggest we use nodejs, my literal reply:
Should see her face 😂17
I like you if you're not a dev.
I like you if you're a dev.
I don't like you if you're not a dev but you try to act one.7
Dev: Hey, do we have a Google cloud machine running?
Me: No we have AWS remember?
Me: Why do you want a gCloud?
Dev: I had this large stack of files and want to put them somewhere, off of my laptop. I just feel comfortable using Google than AWS.
Me: Umm.. there is Dropbox for that sort of stuff. Not high performance servers running our services.
Dev: (After a moment) Yeah, why didn't I think of that? :/
I think he forgot to have breakfast today.18
Not a dev post, just wanted to share :) just for your viewing pleasure - My first pics taken using a low budget camera and ‘scope.11
Do NOT be overwhelmed nor discouraged when you realized how little you know.
after all software dev is still a work in progress :)6
When so called developers "fixes" things by setting 777 on directories...
Please do not call yourself a dev28
Latest from my team,
One of the Dev copied code from a stackoverflow question.
Got same exception as highlighted in the question and started complaining that his code does not work.3
A story of the backend dev. from our client:
"I used !important once now I'm not allowed to do frontend anymore :("17
Having a server with a lower spec CPU and RAM than dev machines, to ensure that if it works on the dev machine it will always run perfectly on the server.
This means we can avoid any debugging tools or techniques (including console logs), because “it will be perfect and it’s not necessary”.4
I'm a Python dev, yet 99% of my work over last 3 weeks has been JS. How do js devs not sit in the corner of a room crying at the end of a day?28
Dev from other team asked me for a code I had previously written. I emailed it.
Dev: Thanks, I received it but am not able to open the .py file
Me: Try using Microsoft Word.12
GUYS I GOT MY FIRST JOB, I'M SO FUCKING PROUD OF MYSELF (not a dev job, but I'm still in high school so anything's good enough for me)23
Now I am not a web dev but I just stumbled upon Electron and envied all web devs.Seems fun being a web dev23
About two years ago I get roped into a something when someone was requesting an $8000 laptop to run an "program" that they wrote in Excel to pull data from our mainframe.
In reality they are using our normal application that interacts with the mainframe and screen scrapping it to populate several Excel spreadsheets.
So this guy kept saying that he needed the expensive laptop because he needed the extra RAM and processing power for his application. At the time we only supported 32 bit Windows 7 so even though I told him ten times that the OS wouldn't recognize more than 3.5 GB of RAM he kept saying that increasing the RAM would fix his problem. I also explained that even if we installed the 64 bit OS we didn't have approval for the 64 bit applications.
So we looked at the code and we found that rather than reusing the same workbook he was opening a new instance of a workbook during each iteration of his loop and then not closing or disposing of them. So he was running out of memory due to never disposing of anything.
Even better than all of that, he wanted a faster processor to speed up the processing, but he had about 5 seconds of thread sleeps in each loop so that the place he was screen scrapping from would have time to load. So it wouldn't matter how fast the processor was, in the end there were sleeps and waits in there hard coded to slow down the app. And the guy didn't understand that a faster processor wouldn't have made a difference.
The worst thing is a "dev" that thinks they know what they are doing but they don't have a clue.8
I just got handed a legacy php web project... Full of vulnerabilities... And it's using only mysql_ functions... Not only it's not OOP, there is not even a single class...
How good it's coded: User profiles are created manually by the frontend dev as htmls, and then the past php dev implemented them as links etc in the current page.
This is how I feel:6
How to talk as a dev to a dev:
1.) Talk normally
2.) Start shouting
3.) Slow down but say it more aggressively
4.) Realise you made a mistake and/or misunderstood something
5.) Explain why it's not your fault
6.) Explain why it's someone elses fault
Wait so I'm not allowed Spotify but it's alright for a manager to stream movies?
Don't give that we're not licensed to play music pretty sure we're not a licensed cinema either.
Either it's one rule for all or none at all enjoy your productivity dip from the dev team.8
I'm not sure how many people on here would care about this since it's not strictly a dev issue, but just thought I'd let everyone know, iOS default apps can now be deleted on iOS 1020
Best part of being a dev ?
You don't need college degree.
You will never get bored even if you are alone.
You can learn everything yourself, online.
Last but not the least, Being the dev is awesome in itself. :)5
If you couldn't work any more as a coder / programmer / hacker / it-master-guru, what would your profession be?
Like, not your ideal profession, but the most likely thing that you would end up doing outside of the dev world.33
PM: Please get this done by tomorrow. It's just a small change.
Dev: No its not that simple.
PM: Why is it not simple? Please explain so I can understand.
Dev after a hard thought finally explains: blah blah blah
PM: Well, we have promised the client so please do this by tomorrow, thanks.
This is actually an advice given to me:
"Only ever release your code on a Friday, preferably after 6pm. If you're not confident enough to do that, your code is not ready."
Who says dev doesn't require courage.2
PM : Have you finished the login issues?
Me, junior dev: No mister.
PM: Why not? You're going to delay the sprint.
Me: The other PM told me not to do it.
When you're the only dev in a project with two managers, life suddenly feels like you're back to 5 years old with your parents arguing all the time.6
!dev !rant but a whole lotta devRant
After talking to a friend about joining devRant++ he said it was a path he could not follow. This is him soon2
So my housemate bought a violin. Gone are the days of quiet programming.
(No he is not some kind of virtuoso, even a woodpecker would play it better.)8
So I just found this app, called LifeRPG. It lets you play your life as a game, compleating quests for exp and "gems"(which you can then trade for custom rewards.. I'm thinking.. Ice cream~ <3) I think this will help keep me motivated more to do actual things in my life. Maybe.. We'll have to see. I already set up a bunch of daily missions, and continous missions.27
WARNING: cringe for full-stack developers..
Recruiters at it again - how does any of this make sense?13
"Use a .dev domain? Not anymore."
Just read a medium article and thought some would be interested in reading it too, as I personally didn't know many of the information published there, for example:
- .dev gTLD belongs to google and nobody can register one
- .dev TLD are required to have a secure connection in chromium/chrome from now on, forcing you to use self signed certs across all development machines
"When applications opened for gTLDs in 2012, Google didn’t just apply for .dev. They applied for 101 gTLDs, including .google, .play, and .app. However, Google wasn’t the only company to apply for many of these gTLDs. For some applications, it took years for applicants to negotiate who would end up with the rights to the name. Google’s application for .dev was pending for over a year. Finally, in December 2014, their application for .dev was granted."
"In 2015, Chromium added the entire .google TLD to the HSTS preload list with little fanfare. It was the first and only TLD entry in the list for two years, until .dev was added in September and shortly followed by .foo, .page, .app, and .chrome — all Google-owned gTLDs."

Non-dev thing that made me a better dev?
Music, and trying to learn music theory. I was never very good at it, still am not, but the harder I try at this, the easier programming becomes...7
Finally back to coding at the new office. Better connection speed. Wider space. Own toilet.
Guess you won't see new posts from me anytime soon.
Just gonna enjoy the rest of your miseries from my chilled desk.
Honestly I love the summer (hate the cold) but motherfucker, hyperhidrosis is a fucking bitch (not diagnosed but one doesn't need to be a genius to figure this one out in my case)
The experience that made me feel like a dev badass was when a teammate accidentally deleted the database for production and I had the latest backup. Everybody was panicking not until I told them I had the solution4
Not sure which is more painful for a dev machine - 13" screen or only 8GB of RAM
Either way, I have both 😢16
Sometimes I don't give a dam naming my classes since I know not a lot of people will see this. At least I'll make a dev laugh!3
When you've to explain normal people that you're a dev and not a hacker and so you can't just hack into their ex's Facebook account like it's some magic trick.3
- hire a new Dev.
- not burnout this year
- work less, deliver more
- start a open source side project and make it production ready7
"Eww that is not Dev-related!"
Shut the fuck up. For me, devRant is a social media for developers and not a social media about only dev-related shit.
"devRant is a fun community for developers to share and bond over their successes and frustrations with code, tech, and life as a programmer!"
"about code, tech and *life*"
For fucks sake... Stop crying around and just dislike it if you don't want it.7
Worst part of being a dev must be working with people who are not willing to change behavior because of arrogance. Oh - and then the constant OS wars talk. It really needs to stop. Like... Now5
Junior Dev: I've a problem, My code is not working
Senior Dev: Then just delete a folder
Junior Dev: Which Folder
Senior Dev: Root Folder,
Start from first, HAPPY CODING!!!1
Best part of beginning a dev ? devRant and rubber ducks and of course the fun of programming stuff and changing world and saying "fuck why its not working" and "fuck why its working"
The worst thing about being a dev is explaining to these fucktards that facebook can't be hacked.
But what is even worse, is when these dipshits say that i am a bad dev for not hacking facebook for them.
Use that big stupid head to sometimes think straight and stop being a little twat.3
New dev: I need help with this issue. I've been debugging it all day.
*2 hours later*
Me: spent a while debugging it, eventually came across a stack overflow post that says you can't do that.
New dev: oh I saw that earlier, didn't think it applied.
Me: ... why ... accepted answer "It is not possible to do this, this way".
New dev: hhhmm, ok
... get the fuck out of this building immediately.3
During QA for a huge project when our dev team was confident of the stability of the project, We started introducing small bugs, QA team use to raise bugs in Jira, we marked them as not reproducible.
Frustrated QA started coming to our cubes - at this point dev team worked in a perfect coordination like a man to man marking in hockey. While one dev asked QA guy to reproduce the bug in front of him while the other dev has already fixed it.
Continued for a couple of days till our team lead was satisfied with the revenge.
A dev I know has changed his LinkedIn job title to “software extraordinaire”
... and he’s hopeless so it’s not even true2
As a primarily back end dev, I'm not very good at design. So i wrote a Ruby script to download free html + css templates... all 3600+ of them 😐3
My wife asked what "Soapy" was on my laptop. She was referring to SoapUI, but told me the U must be silent ;)
The past few weeks were not so good to me, but guess what, I got hired today. And now, i'm thankful that i got rejected from the previous ones. Wish me luck on my career as a junior dev. :)8
Joined a new company / team to work on an iOS app that has 2 different backend environments "Dev" and "Prod". Also being referred to in iOS speak as "Debug" and "Release".
Been trying to get accounts on these backends (no sign up in app, its controlled via another process). Eventually get access to "Dev" for one of the regions, so I load up "Debug" and its not working.
This is odd, so I open the Android app and load "Dev" and it works? I then Notice Android has "Dev", "QA", "Staging" and "Prod" for every region where as iOS only has 2 of these.
So I go back to iOS and find the file for the settings and it has iOS Debug assigned a variable for the backend Dev ... which is actually pointing to QA. Because they use QA to Debug and not Dev.
... confused? join the club4
One thing I've noticed about devRant is the ratio of web dev/mobile dev posts to database/architecture/big data dev posts. There's A LOT of you web peeps out there, and not enough data dudes, which I guess justifies my constant demand, salary and lack of competition. Just an observation.9
Quited my job because I want to code and not project managing (instead of coding). Found a new job as front-end developer with opportunity to become a full stack dev.
OH MY FUCKING GOD!!!!
HOW CAN SOMEONE BE A FREELANCER/WEB DEV AND TYPE SO FUCKING SLOW AND HAVE TROUBLE WITH FUCKING LETTERS ALL THE TIME?!
I'm gonna push this mother fucker so hard that he will learn not to "lie" in an interview never again and become a fucking dev.5
My gf (she is a dev too) gets mad at me, cause i ask for her help and it usually ends up as plain rubberducking...
Not my fault!10
Stougles of a developer whose native language is not English.
1 ANSI keyboard for dev
1 local ISO qertz keyboard for everything else with weird characters8
Reading books, not sure if you can even call it a non-dev activity since it is essential in my opinion but reading improves my programming skills everyday!
It's a week late notice but...
I got my first actual-real-paid-not start-up dev job!
And I have no one to celebrate it with... Toronto..?9
Not an enemy yet, but I’ve just debated with a senior dev that said stored procedure is faster, safer, and works better than entity framework
I agree with faster (only a bit) but the rest is just bs26
This is a nice community and this app is a great too. No ads or promotions are also there. So how does app manage financially ,i know there is a swag store but is that enough .As community gets larger, more resources are needed to keep everyone happy ryt ? more servers etc..
Will there be a different model when this expands ?
First rant goes here...
Had an interview for post of android dev at a start-up(please note: they specified they need a full-time android dev for their team, junior role, even freshers would do). Not a single question asked from android- architecture, apps, libraries, not even anything from my resume. They thought that any person who can 'reverse a linked list on paper' can work with them, but not a dev who has a year's experience in android development.
At the end, after asking me about a dozen (quite simple) DS questions, they said they can't provide the opportunity to a fresher, and I can join as an intern for 3-6 months and 'work my way up'.
WHY THE FUCK YOU SAID YOU NEED A FULL-TIME ANDROID DEV WITHOUT MUCH EXPERIENCE? AND WHY DIDN'T YOU ASK ME RELEVANT QUESTIONS?3
This is my current dev/personal desktop, im not humble, im just poor! I just need to finish my studies so I can get a job!14
How many of you guys have played Uplink? IMO it's a game every dev should try. While it's not exactly realistic, especially today, it shows actually how powerful a hacker can be. And YOU are that hacker.5
You know you're a web dev when...
you consider not buying pizza just because the ordering website appears to use global jQuery selectors. 😣7
Watching google (chrome) dev summits is always both a blessing and a curse, their constant masturbation makes you catch air just to not vomit, but then they give actual interesting insight into webpack features.3
Friend of mine who is not a Dev and loves to go out sees me few days ago with a couple of Dev friends...
Dude what's going on? Dude dude let me tell you about this chick... 1 hour later story ends. We gave him respect as one Dev should to a non dev and started talking about IDEs and how the new VS Code is pretty awesome.
He interrupts and goes ... that chick Venesa Code, is she hot? Would you?
Silence ... We would, we all would.
When I was 6 or 7 years old I said I'll work "at the company that makes diskettes" (for games).
I'm not a dev though - I'm a grad student. I hope my rants are still welcome here.
Some ranters get pissed with junior dev who thinks unit testing is not necessary and a waste of time. While I'm here convincing all senior devs in my office why testing is important. I gave up.3
Yes! I just managed to play Take Five by ear with the exact chords. Might not sound like a lot, but this have been a milestone I've always wanted to reach. Yay!5
Top reason to not be a dev?
Because you could't get through 9th grade Algebra you dumb piece of shit.6
Just over heard, Dev A was reviewing another team's code ...
Senior Dev A: "I don't understand this teams code. I hate WebAPI. Wish we could use X."
Senior Dev B: "Why can't we use X?"
Senior Dev A: "It's frowned upon."
Senior Dev B: "By whom?"
- couple of seconds of silence -
Senior Dev A: "X is not a Microsoft technology"
- few more seconds of awkward silence -
Senior Dev A: "X is magnitudes slower than WebAPI anyway."
Senior Dev C: "What? How much slower?"
- caught off guard..didn't know Senior Dev C didn't have his headphones on -
Senior Dev A: "Um...I don't know, that is what you told me."
Senior Dev C: "I never said that. I've never used X. I prefer WebAPI anyway, but both WebAPI and X use REST based protocols, I doubt X is magnitudes slower. Actually, I think you told me WebAPI was slower."
Senior Dev A: "Different paradigm."
- second or two of silence -
Senior Dev B: "What?"
Senior Dev A: "Hey, did you see on twitter ..."
Have no idea where he thought that conversation was going. Maybe he was hoping the other devs would dog-pile/attack the code. Pretty funny it backfired. His face when Dev C said 'I never said that' was priceless. Like "Oh -bleep- ..how do I lie out of this one? ...quick, distract with random words or a twitter post"
A question for all the front-end developers of devRant. How the fuck do you get a really good color scheme for a website?
P. S. I am not a front-end dev so please simple words17
Well be a dev if you want to.
Don't be a dev if you don't want to.
So many gate keeping post for this week's group rant. Makes me sick reading them.
So many devs here think they are perfect by doing all complex things and others who cannot do like them is a loser and should not be a dev.
WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK GUYS!!!!
Just stop defining subjective criteria.19
*Senior Dev:* Ah yes, we need to put try-catch in every function to handle errors and Logger.Log() at the beginning.
*Me:* Is not better to define a global error handler and use the stacktrace instead of doing all that?
*Senior Dev*: ...
*Senior Dev*: Is a rule here, do what I'm telling you.3
Starting to develop a phobia of asking for help from senior devs since I can now sense their face-palm whenever I open my mouth.
Maybe I'm not ready to work as a junior dev yet...9
Woooooo! Someone ran a cleanup script that deleted all the RPM package our dev Oracle databases use. Glad I'm not that person.
My biggest regret working for a company that is not willing to buy decent dev machine when they actually can afford it.
1. Master react
2. Finish my grad thesis
3. Get a react dev job
p.s. Not necessarily in that order.1
4 spaces for indenting..not 2.
This has about a 75% chance to push a dev into a full on rampage mode.
JUST HIT THE FUCKING TAB KEY4
It's a job description for an entry level Software Developer role at Apple.
Basically they want
- A Front end dev
- A back end dev
- An iOS expert
- A Gimp/photoshop designer
- A streaming data expert
- An Oracle/Teradata expert
- A Kafka expert ( Not shown in the picture)
And on top of that the guy should be able to learn new tech faster.
Do they want a developer or a fucking terminator?5
Just tried out Minecraft's shader mod SEUS and wondering what the fuck am I doing with my life being a web dev and not working on graphics.
If you have an nvidia gpu, please give it a try.
This is an example with PBR textures, it's mind blowing https://youtu.be/RbM5w9CBDIw
INB4 comment like "peasant web dev wants to do graphics lmao"13
can you guys suggest me good TV/Anime series with few seasons or episodes so I can use my Sunday. Not in a mood for work.42
Me: Im testing a new feature that is not on production yet for 30m and can not make it work. (I asked the developer for any idea why is not working)
Dev: i just tested, works fine.
Me: i just tested again with no luck. I’m i missing anything?
Dev: (Developer comes to my desk). Lets see what you doing wrong here. (After 5seconds). You have been redirected to the production site and you've been testing there all this time.
my worst dev sin:
Commit and go home on a friday not waiting for the build to pass.
Tons of notification from counterparts the following monday1
After 4 months of dev, Project went into production
Client: it should work like that.
Me: it's a CR!
Client: No, it's not!
Me: talk to my boss.
That moment when you actually finish the side project 😂
It uses https://github.com/dylanaraps/pywal in the backend
PS - I'm not a front end dev18
Not being motivated enough to work on or finish personal projects.
Apparently, easier said, than done when you have a full-time Dev job.1
I'm not a web dev but I am pretty sure it is not so easy!
TNW just lost it's respect from me for this click bait!3
So my startup warned me last night that I would have to pitch. Goddamn guys, really?! Pitch for a minute in front of ... PEOPLE?! WTF were they thinking?! I'm a fucking dev, not a HR guy for crying out loud3
Any tips for a Dev who never contributed to an open source project before? What sorts of mistakes do first time contributors normally make? Most importantly what can I do to not annoy* fellow contributors?2
2 Questions for guys [and gals, let's not be sexists..] with beards.
1. Why the beard? :)
2. What dev are you [bkend/fend/fstack, what lang.?]? Or admin?
I wonder if there is a correlation..16
I'm on a trial day for a new designer job. Now i'm tasked to implement my screen design into html. I feel so lost.8
> Have nothing to do with programming
> Starts shitty coding bootcamp online, possibly for free
> Learns html/css/js course
> Builds to-do app (dont know how to deploy it with anything but github pages, but who cares)
> Takes a week to finish course
> Gets e-certificate and posts it on LinkedIn
> Adds web and front end dev as Professional Skill on LinkedIn
> Complains how bad the tech industry is for 'new entries and beginners'2
Just merged a PR, all checks were green and it was reviewed and approved by me and another dev.
Had a great big ‘do not merge’ label on it...
I still wonder why people go to programming classes thinking a dev is paid a lot. Not all devs are paid a lot and it takes passion and hard work to be a good dev. Don't just go there for the money. You'll regret wasting your life.4
Stickers made it to Niagara! Not the first set either, we have a solid dev community up here. Thanks for the stickers @dfox!1
Had an odd bug today. No rubber duck in sight so I started using my friend (who is not a dev) as a rubber duck. He was *not* amused.
But I did figure out the bug!!
Broke down and asked the junior dev to help me hash out an issue. He's also struggling with it.
I'm not a retard after all... unless were both retards.1
Never had the situation to give advice to a new dev. But I have an idea anyways: Give that dev a problem, which is above beginner level and watch the dev. If the dev rage quits and doesn't want to try again, then the new dev will not be happy with the job. But if the dev achieves to collect all knowledge to handle the problem, even if the solution is not the most elegant way, then the dev will have fun with the profession.2
Lead-Dev: "These links don't work as they should, I'm having you fix them, 'kay?"
Me: "I'll have a look."
> The link doesn't do anything when you click on it.
My internal monologue: (The href is probably just wrong)
> It's not wrong.
Me: "What the fuck?"
Lead-Dev: "Can you fix it?"
Me: "I don't think I can."
Lead-Dev: "Why don't you try looking in thisScript.js?"
Me: "Oh, you think the click event got prevented or something?"
Lead-Dev: "No, I think something went wrong with what that script is doing with the jQuery library this site uses."
Me: "jQuery... library...?"3
I'm still a student, not dev yet.
Thanks for reminding me that I don't completely belong in here😂12
Coworker: I've been working on this computer for an entire day now and it's still having issues
Boss: Well, we can give the client an option to get another SSD and clone to it before reinstalling the OS.
Coworker: But he doens't have an SSD...
Boss: Yes he does
Coworker: *opens computer* let's see, two 1TB hard drives... but no SSD... Oh, there it is. It's hidden. But it's booting too slow to be....
Coworker: Oh my god. I've been telling the computer to boot to the wrong hard drive. That explains everything!1
Hi guys! Im jr dev and i had a great week! My girlfriend letf my house :'( but my project it's working very well on production. It's not a prank!
My brother (not a dev) asked me for help for his A* algorithm he's trying to optimize.
I'm so proud5
Killed the backend production db of my app with a dev ops guy for 20 hours.
The emails I received were not the nicest of all time.1
Thousands of books, tutorial and tons of resourcew which are to guide us, make us feel more lost.
Being a noobie dev is not easy.4
I have emails which I receive from job sites like indeed and others, mainly because I'm too lazy to unsubscribe.
However, the amount of ads for a "senior" developer is astounding. Then seeing salary range they are offering stuns me everytime.
At least 80% of the ads don't compensate in salary for who they are wanting to hire.
The salary range for these "senior" devs is a salary range for a junior dev or maybe sometimes even an intermediate dev, but def not a senior dev.
If you cannot afford to hire a senior dev, don't advertise for one.5
Dev goals on the 1st of January:
- learn vulkan
- get a good paying job
Dev goals on the 3rd of January:
- not getting drafted2
A bit long read but worth it for every dev to become a better dev.
No no, not from me.
From Linus Torvalds himself.
I don't really get it why my co-male dev does not like ternary operator as a shorthand operator for if/else statements.16
A friend of mine and I are about to open a company and we're hiring a developer to develop websites, no specific needs, it literally just have to work.
We found this guy, who develops goodlooking websites, but isn't really a developer, meaning that he just uses visual composers. (which doesn't differ too much from what we want).
Well this guy kinda loves us because we're actual developers who know how to code "properly".
It's the first time someone likes me just bc I'm a developer and I'm already superhappy!
Hope it will get good soon enough!
When a dev complains his/her code was not deployed and you find the code was check-in in wrong branch.
Why does everyone screenshot a Tweet, instead of using a perfectly good app 'Tweet2Pic' being available on Play Store.
P.S: I am the dev, shamelessly promoting my app. I am not sure if I can share links here 😅3
Well! Hello everyone!
I am PokerJack. (Not a jAsE account)
Well, that's the name of my first Python Program. ~\_(-_-)_/~
Not a dev, would like to be one.
I work at Pornhub as a Consultant.
@rutee07 is my subordinate.
@devTea is my assistant
@Root - Dev Lead
@grumpyoldaf - Boss
@irene - Girlfriend
@jAsE - Heard about him, never found out who.
Btw, @rutee07 send me the test logins for all Pornhub Premium accounts. Immediately!!28
Not my rant, but this person can probably use some devRant in his/her life. Go read the full tweet and his/her replies here.
Buck up for a very very long read.
There was quite the argument storm in (a) similar rant(s) here, so hope peeps don’t mind how this is just adding to the pile. The tweet uses a lot of web examples and bashed really hard on them.
PS: I do web dev myself, but I have to agree to certain nasty things about it.10
Not purely dev related but I’d love to make a living out of creating my own products/startups. The dream.4
Unlimited power to do anything with any electronic devices.
Every movie contains a developer(hacker).
Can make non dev shut up with neat dev terms.
Completely understand silicon valley and Mr.Robot(non dev do not get the things like github, method, etc.),
And yeah most importantly devRant.
Not the worst dev I've interviewed but the worst dev I've worked with.
Proposed a lot of stuff for our school project and said repeatedly he'd do his part. When the proposal was accepted, he was hard to contact and left me to do a majority of the work. Gave him a terrible review when it came to evaluations.
Not just as a dev.. but as a person who does anything - getting over the mental block which keeps stopping you from taking up actual projects or completing them without abandoning them... the struggle is real... and I'm still struggling😅1
You're not really a dev until you start laughing your ass off at every Hollywood attempt at writing a scene where a "computer whiz" does some amazing "hacking"1
While watching 'theory of everything'
Mom: Even Stephen had a girlfriend.
Me: I'm a dev, not a scientist!1
Develop an application on Windows that will be run on a Linux Server. Strange bugs occur on server but not in dev environment.4
Lead Dev: Release what you have today for testing.
Me: It's not finished?
Lead Dev: Release it for testing anyway.
PM: Don't release until it's ready but it has to be ready by Monday.
Stuck between a rock and a hard place come to mind...1
Not a rant, but I was offered dev positions at 2 companies. Excited to start working as a developer! I guess I'll get to post actual rants soon.2
After 2 weeks of ranting I have honestly ran out of rants.
Either my life as a dev is too good or I'm clearly not coding enough.
The later seems more plausible.
Recruiter wrote me to see if i was interested in a java frontend dev role - my answer:
Dev industry develop so fast. This is because information available anywhere in the internet and people try to learn any programming language they want . But only few know whether they following secure coding practice or not
But the thing is most of Dev people dosent care about security. They focus just to develop a application but not to secure it?2
Not Dev related but I'm super fucking excited and have to vent somewhere and fuck Facebook and Twitter.
Purchased a smoke infuser and just ordered some hickory and applewood chips... As soon as this shows up I'm going to be infusing every single item in my kitchen!
Got a feeling cooking is going to start taking away valuable Dev time!2
Dev: Please let us know when will be a good time to make a DNS switch for launching the site?
Client: one hour later, hey I did a DNS switch to your server but the site is not there?!
Dev: (Fuck me running!!) fuck fuck fuck fuck and fuck my life!
Dev, boss and guy who know logic is looking at the server.
Problem: it's not responding
Boss: we need this running now! Otherwise the sales won't go through
Dev: give me a chance, I just got here
Guy: have you tried turning it off and on again?
They did so and at works.
Boss: guess we don't need to hire another dev, this guy knows what he is talking about, he is some kind of server expert..
The best part of the day: when someone from SEO tells you how easy adding/updating an extension in magento2 should be.... Uhm, excuse me.2
I like a Product Manager/Owner/CTO who invites coffee when a dev burnout. This is not a story, a hope seems to be.2

Say what you want, but I'm sharing this.
The only thing I am waiting in 2019 is this. Not new phones, not new OSs, not new apps, not new digital currency, not new sex toy, not new God Of War, not new Game of Thrones. Just this 3rd installment of my favorite game.
// I am not a serious gamer.4
I did not fully understand dev ducks untill my project partner said I used him as a dev duck. I wonder how long it would take until he gets me one.
Could a freelance dev let me know how they find clients? Not just the ones from sites online and such, but the good clients, 3-4 month projects, proper prices?4
Do some of you make a passive income from something dev related?
What are your experiences?
I’m thinking about starting a dev blog with focus on financial software, but it would be nice to do something that brings in some extra bugs. There are so many blogs, mine would probably not even be seen by anyone..5
Got in trouble yesterday for deploying to a QA environment and NOT sudo vimming a file to change the hardcoded email recipient... Maybe, the dev who wrote that file should use our configuration files instead of hardcoding it!
I dreamt about bugs this night. Not software bugs, but actual bugs, like a centipede that enjoyed attaching itself to the inside of my palm and such... Not sure if dev related or not, not a good dream either way :/5
I regret becoming a frontend dev ( mostly because I started learning jQuery first and not pure js ) .1
You're not a real dev unless you've made so many changes in your code without testing, that you're too afraid to actually test it.4
When you get a freelance dev who thinks he is a superstar dev and he is trying to prove he knows his stuff by throwing his 2 cents at everything and shits all over every architecture and code style decision of the project, even though he is not even familiar with the framework used by the project...1
I'm not a dev, but the laziest thing I do is probably not programming at all or just copying stuff without much thinking... just not really trying1
!(rant && story)
It hit me today. I literally 100% fit the exact stereotype for a backend developer.
And it's not wrong, I love backend dev and hate frontend work with a burning passion (even though I can do it)
I hate doing discovery and system analyst type crap. I'm a Dev, not a technical documenter. I'm not the product owner and I shouldn't be defining requirements for the application. Why does this seem to happen a lot?1
Family's out. Sunny Saturday. Summer time. ... ... got a SSD from company: stays home installing dev tools and what not just to check new speedy computer.
As a junior dev, you are stuck on a Problem and somehow you are not able to proceed and there is a ridiculous process to finish the task on a deadline otherwise you have to hear from higher management. Your manager cum senior dev is not helping you out or not responding in any way. Do I kill myself being so incompetent dev or burn my ears listening to management complaints or is there any way I can get out of it? My life is just miserable and I feel demotivated day by day.
Just ranting my heart out...5
when you've got a week left till your deliverable , and the other dev has not wrote a line of code, nor bothered to learn the framework.3
We're quite keen on you so we'll definitely call you...
That call never came so I made a follow up and I got a considering the current size of the company we not quite ready to have another dev
Not dev but, enough for the story. Had an assignment to create a hashtable for my DS course. Asked a friend how he managed resizing and the load factor
Friend= space complexity what...
"Can't you just write 'width stop at text'"?
When discussing a grid system cell width
I think they meant it light heartedly, so it's not as bad... (And their not a dev).
Worst dev experience: Started vim, could not escape, had to get a new computer... 😐
Just kidding, everything was good 😜
let's face the facts devs, a language or framework does not make development faster but being well versed in a language or framework does. just ask any 10X dev 😀10
I will have you know that being part of the mobile solutions team is pretty sweet when you have nothing to do but keep a few databases clean and up to date, test which iPad is best suited for the sales people and buy 20 cases to test them for sturdiness.
Seriously without dumb idiots arguing about roaming costs and demanding help with the most basic shit this would be heaven.
I mean it's apple but still having every color of the 9.7 iPad and of the 12,9 pro stacked up on your desk is pretty cool.
bug comment in the tracker, from the new junior dev, during her first week:
"probably fixed by [other dev]".
Among the unhelpful comments, this was a special gem. really special. a What the Fuck did you mean by that special. Was it fixed or not? who fixed it? [other dev]? someone else?
it was better not to have any comment at all.
later that junior became a really good dev...
Wanted to share a devrant post to a non-dev friend. Sent URL link. His phone sends him to the app store to download devRant. Can we not?6
- Quit my job
- deploy my platform live!!
- make a dev tool
- move out
- get a cat
- start at least 1 successful business/application
Not in that order3
!devRant (tis a rant but not a dev-rant)
My main man is mad! 2 hour flight delay and missing the connecting flight. Guess we'll have to stay in Atlanta!
From the day I was born,
Till the day I'll die!!
Every action that I perform,
Is a party if my sin!!
This may not be story of a Dev,
But this is the story of mine!!
Trying to explain a game developer in a community, why its a bad idea to only make client side patches for equiptment to appear correctly..
me: because the server needs to be aware of the changes made to avoid faulty calculations, for instance if the client calculates a fatal but the server disagree..
dev: but it works...
me: yes, but not optimally.
dev: Working as intended (TM)
me: ... teh fuq?
not sure if he's a bad troll or wut..1
Thinking about teaching a friend programming, I'm tempted by Kotlin as he's interested in mobile dev. Reasonable? Also any programming teacher have tips? I've always programmed so not sure how to look at it from a muggle's - I mean non dev view point.3
Cómpletely not dev related but...
Any english geeks?
What is the difference between a few and the few ??
I can't find a difference but my stupid school english teacher is telling there is a diffenence8
When you get brought into a new dev job and the lead tester says "oh good, the junior bug boy is here"... Not sure if he thinks I'll be squashing them or making them...
Being tempted by a job offer as an iOS dev that has full (paid) training. Not a fan of apple but heard swift is a nice language (assuming it is swift).
I've spent the last year and a half learning the react way as my first dev job, not sure whether it's beneficial to keep on this path or diversify.
sends new dev online read about how to write good commit messages.
does not write a good commit message.
i am not a SQL expert, but i can do what i need to do in order to be considered a full stack dev
the syntax i have to learn was deprecated before i was even born
Hey assholes, if you need a cms dev. Don't hire a front end dev to do your dirty cms bullshit. Sorry, NOT sorry.3
Hey so Father's Day is coming up, any ideas for gifts? He's like 60 and though a dev, not really a tech type.3
How do you define a junior/senior dev?
I've been a professional developer for about 5/6 years now.
Would taking a "junior" role be a step down? Or does the term not really matter?3
first experience with ios development and ios designer with xamarin.ios..
as an Android guy, I find yhe way apple make building UI too disturbing and not helping dev to do the job more fastly.
but anyway, it's a good opportunity
Unsure of what path to take as a developer.
I'll be graduating from uni next year and I'll probably go into web dev but I'm not really passionate about it building websites for a living.4
Not so much a rant or a dev thing. What is the quote that drives you?
For me it is: "Those who don't have discipline, don't deserve to dream" -unknown6
Today marks the end of my first week as a full-time employee in this company (been here a month as a part-time before being hired).
I joined as a QA agent, but they put me in localization duty (in addition to QA) about two weeks in. This week, they told me I'd be responsible for the whole translation process, from choosing the tools to implementing them.
On one side, I'm excited as hell to have some responsibility. On the other, afraid I'll fuck it up and wreck my shiny new position.
Any tips on not fucking up you new job? 😅3
truly awful day. after giving brain numbing college exams, am completely out of loop and unable to turn on my dev switch back. Tried to make a basic website for friend, could not even make a nav bar :/
When you're discussing Twitter bootstrap w a fellow dev and someone else chimes in about how Twitter raised funds and is not a bootstrapped company..
I have an interview for a Mobile Dev Trainee position with me classmates. I'm a web guy. I have no idea what has been going on with mobile dev while I was away. But this is opportunity. Halp! What to do to not screw it up? I understand the concept of making API calls somehow. Maybe, that would halp?1
Just spent a lot of development hours today! Quite more than routine! Not even tired because had great sync with the partner dev! Cheers!
MFW I, a junior dev who just started have to explain what sql injection is to a senior IT person... It's not like I'm an expert in the field, but a little bit of expertise would be nice2
All married devs here who married devs
Why did you chose a dev and not another profession?
Of course skipping the love4
OH: We have a DevOps team that does neither Dev nor Ops. An SRE team that are not engineers and a head of SW Dev who said with a straight face today that our Oracle multi-monolithification over the past 3 years was a ‘Digital Transformation'.1
A senior dev wrote spaghetti code containing business logic in the fucking controller with some code repeated in a couple of other places.
This is when a facepalm is not enough.1
I get the feeling that trying to live as if being a dev is not a lifestyle is a lie. Not that you can’t have other hobbies as a dev, but development needs to be your first hobby as well as your career if you are going to achieve anything in this industry.15
Since last update (version 63) Google chrome forces all *.dev domains to use https. Guess who used a *.dev domain for his local development virtual machine and now have to switch to *.local ...
Removing the HSTS Rule from chrome seems not to be possible and surprisingly I could not use a self signed SSL certificate to make it working again.3
I've been coding for just about 2 months now! I literally dont wanna do anything else!! Its all I can think about... I know im not qualified to work a dev job yet lol but I wish i could nab a junior dev position so I can practice 9-5 not just after business hours and on the weekend...
An interns excuse to not do work, "I'm a Java developer, not objc" are you really even a Dev at all smart ass?
A new way appeared in my life.
Everything related to cars, metal and motor engines.
I may or may not have to dissapoint some people with it, but I am not going to be a dev I guess.
It was all fun and chill. Do not worry. I am not going to leave this awesome place haha, just felt like mentioning it. :)8
I'm so used to watching all websites with the dev tools open, that when I finally close it, they all look skewed to the right and not centeret.
Oh well, that's just a part of the game I guess
learning to code while working as not a dev. Gives freedom but zero experience. Need experience but lack confidence :(6
Write a novel about code and digitalization - not so much dev'ish.
Rral dev thing: finish reading SICP and really plunge in one of the functional languages2
This is not dev related but I figured I would ask here anyways. What type of connector is this?
I have this old subwoofer with a non interchangeable cable like this. I have been searching around but can't find a name for this type of connector...18
This is an actual transcript...
Since it's way too long for the normal 5000 characters, hence splitting it up...
Infra Guy: mr Dev, could you please give some rational for update of jjb?
Dev: sparse checkout support is missing
Infra Guy: is this support mandatory to achive whatever you trying to do?
Infra Guy: u trying to get set of specific folder for set of specific components?
Infra Guy: bash script with cp or mv will not work for you?
Infra Guy: ?
Dev: when you have already present functionality why reinvent the wheel
Dev: jenkins has support for it
Dev: the jjb is the bottle neck
Infra Guy: getting this functionality onto our infra would have some implications
Dev: why should I write bash script if jenkins allows me to do that
Dev: what implications ??
Infra Guy: will you commit to solve all the issues caused by new jjb?
Dev: you show me the implications first
Infra Guy: like a year ago i have tried to get new jjb <commit_url>
Infra Guy: no, the implications is a grey area
Infra Guy: i cant show all of them and they may hit like in week or eve month
Dev: then why was it not tackled
Dev: and why was it kept like that
Infra Guy: few jobs got broken on something
Dev: it will crop up some time later
Dev: if jobs get broken because of syntax
Dev: then jobs can be fixed
Dev: is it not ???
Infra Guy: ofc
Infra Guy: its just a question who will fix them
Dev: follow the syntax and follow the guidelines
Dev: put up a test server and try and lets see
Dev: you have a dev server
Dev: why not try on that one and see what all jobs fails
Dev: and why they fail
Dev: rather than saying it will fail and who will fix
Dev: let them fail and then lets find why
Dev: I manually define a job
Dev: I get it done
Infra Guy: i dont think we have test server which have the same workload and same attention as our prod
Dev: unless you test how would you know ??
Dev: and just saying that it broke one with a version hence I wont do it
Infra Guy: and im not sure if thats fair for us to deal with implication of upgrading of the major components just cause bash script is not good enough for u
Dev: its pretty bad
Infra Guy: i do agree
Infra TL Guy: Dev, what Infra Guy is saying is that its not possible to upgrade without downtime
Infra Guy: no
Dev: how long a downtime are we looking at ??
Infra Guy: im saying that after this upgrade we will have deal with consequences for long time
Infra Guy-2: No this is not testing the upgrade is the huge effort as we dont have dev resources to handle each job to run
Dev: if your jjb compiles all the yaml without error
Dev: I am not sure what consequences are we talking of
Infra Guy: so you think there will be no consequences, right?
Dev: unless you take the plunge will you know ??
Dev: you have a dev server running at port 9000
Infra Guy: this servers runs nothing
Dev: that is good
Dev: there you can take the risk
Infra Guy: and the fack we have managed to put something onto api doesnt mean it works
Dev: what API ?
Infra Guy: jenkins api
Infra Guy: hmmm
Dev: what have you put on Jenkins API ??
Infra Guy: (
Dev: jjb is a CLI
Infra Guy: ((
Dev: is what I understand
Dev: not a Jenkins API
Infra Guy: (((
Infra Guy: jjb build xmls and push them onto api
Infra Guy: and its doent matter
Dev: so you mean to say upgrading a CLI is goig to upgrade your core jenkisn API
Dev: give me a break
Infra Guy: the matter is that even if have managed to build something and put it onto api
Infra Guy: doesnt mean it will work
Dev: the API consumes the xml file and creates a job
Infra Guy: right
Dev: if it confirms to the options which it understands
Dev: then everything will work
Dev: I am actually not getting your point Infra Guy
Infra Guy: i do agree mr Dev
Dev: we are beating around the bush
Infra Guy: just want to be sure that if this upgrade will break something
Infra Guy: we will have a person who will fix it
Dev: that is what CICD is supposed to let me know with valid reasons
Dev: why can't that upgrade be done
Infra Guy: it can be done
Infra Guy: i even have commit in place3
Any mobile games dev here? I want to create a game (not too complex) with Unity and i need some advices (any advice would be nice)11
I'm not much of a front-end dev and tasked myself to make a site for the dev group I'm in. Figured that it doesn't need any big libraries since it's a simple one page.
Boy was I wrong. After about 3 to 4 hours of getting nowhere with css, switched to Bulma and in about half an hour, not only did it look decent but it was responsive and fast and clean.
Bless bulma and it's developers. Sure saved my ass3
iOS 11 have a vulnerability allowing attacker to bypass your lock screen and brick your phone via prepared “dev profile”. Do not download any utrusted stuff untill official fix ;)7
Ideal dev job?
Getting a kick out of building something from scratch that gets used and loved by thousands of people.
But then you asked for ideal, not realistic, right?
I once had a team member who was a self proclaimed technology expert. He was even interviewed on national TV for his opinions on telecoms, net neutrality and the ITC sector in our humble island.
this guy, for several months, probably to this day, cannot figure out how to set his password for his company Gmail account. he could never figure how to use Google drive, docs or any of the most basic tools.
he has no training in any development practices or languages. he did history in college and didn't even finish, but.....somehow he was able to watch half of an HTML tutorial online and then land himself a remote web dev job earning $45 USD/hr!!!!! i still dont know how he did that.
I'm am three parts upset, one part in awe of how far he has gotten just by talking to people.4
I have to put together a "performance improvement plan" for a senior dev today. Not the best part of this job.4
Any top tips for recruiting or things you look for in an ad?
Our company has just advertised 4 roles (one was a junior PHP/JS dev role) and we got 90 applications. Only one was for the dev role, and we decided not to pursue it.
We're keen not to go the recruiter route, they cost a ton and that means less pay for the dev in the end. Plus, you've only got to look at this week's rants to see how they work!
Every day without help feels like an eternity of ever shortening impossible client deadlines for me. 😩😭 (I'm the main dev on a team of 3 including our PM)5
A web dev newsletter that's targeted at "advanced beginners" (people who are done with FCC/Codeacademy etc courses and have nowhere else to go). It's ready and stuff but there's just not enough motivation to keep at it consistently 😂
Best part of being a dev?
Not there yet, but as long as one has the knowledge, one can create anything, and make people feel connected to their creation.
At least that's what I'm aiming at1
Is there anyone out there that has experience with reactor network solvers in C++ I could ask some stuff? I hope I'm "Dev" enough to be here, even if I'm a chemical engineering student and not a "classical" developer :)6
that moment when a fellow dev asks you a web dev ( PHP ) for help and you see
... -03 -0fast & funroll fruity loops ...
im not surprised that Gentoo box died ...
Life is good.
Nah, that's it, not a rant, just wanna cheer you up for a few seconds of your today's dev agony. <34
All of them...I'm a dev, I'm supposed to be planted in front of a machine, typing... Not sitting in a room talking
There are so many JS Frameworks out there that i even completly lost track of what is "trend" and what is basically "old".
Well i guess a bunch of you relate to this, and just because i am not a JS Dev, doesn't mean that i am not open for new stuff :D
The only thing i am not open for is Java.10
I never had a fight. And I mean never at all, not just dev-related.
I'm not sure that this is a good thing.
Sometimes I wonder, does this mean that I'm a good diplomat, or that I'm not relevant enough to argue with?1
Not a dev post. just want to share this!
The Lost City of Atlantis - Hidden in Plain Sight
@dfox Now, I'm not a web dev (or really a dev of any kind quite yet) but I noticed that your web app doesn't show emoticons properly, making it confusing at times. Is this something you can set up support for on your side, or something I can or should do on my end? (This is on Chrome btw.)4
A dev with not much money to execute own vision. Of course I dont have a say. It'll be the same repetitive history again.
When you reach out to a Dev after finding a production issue: "[Redacted] is not allocated for this. Please refrain from engaging him with adhoc requests"1
4th year of technical school I though I was not gonna continue programming in university. Got a dev job after graduating and started uni. 2 years after I am pretty sure I am going to be a dev.

Not dev related, assuming that here is a lot of people interested in history , philosophy, books I would like to ask for recommendations for:
YouTube channels or site related to history, books reviews/recommendations (dev and non-dev related), philosophy.
A dev needs 2 things to produce a great product: Time and Coffee. If there's not enough time, add more coffee. If there's a lot of it then lessen the coffee. 😏
Not really a rant, but...
during times like the last 3 or so months, being a dev feels kinda extra sweet: the only difference for me has been a raise and increase in productivity
a friend greeting our group of friends: advanced happy new year guys!
me: basic happy new year guys! 😅
spent too much time on devrants today and my oh my the horror 🤣
Today, i'm not interested in software development anymore, let's see what tomorrow brings.4
Say you'd have a dev apply for a job after only 6 months into his previous job, what would be your thoughts on that?
Would you outright reject the applicant? If not, wwyd?7
I'm majoring in comp sci but I feel like I'm not learning what I need to be a good dev.
Anyone got any advice?6
I tried the portrait to look like me but Im a junior dev, not that senior dev guy you see on the picture...
Oh yeah that's right this friend of mine wanted me to make a RPG about French President Emmanuel Macron.
That would definitely look neat on my curriculum vitae.1
New dev here.
Got assigned a task which revolves around trying to figure out a 7000 character DB2 SQL (spaces not included).
Im dying a litle bit inside...
If all dev job were taken by AI, I'll probably go back to making dolls and fabric jewelry. Is not as good a source of income as being a dev but you can survive off it.
Worst part of being a dev?
Tried to explain to das and family what I do and until now, no success!
Not even my wife understands!
And, according to my father in law, I work with "internet".
I can't imagine how exactly not being a dev feels like :D (in the sense of skill, not profession). I honestly believe it will be part of primary education in the not so far future.
So actually I need reasons for not to be a dev :)
Should I buy a Surface pro or get a pc assembled for Linux or get a pc assembled for Windows. I'm new to dev and not planning to be a web dev. I already have a MacBook Pro and at work I have a Windows desktop. Also I'm planning to get in to gaming. Whatever OS it is I will be exploring it and learning. I have read so much on what would be thr best option but still can't make a decision.6
When you ask for a local dev server for ages so your not running on live environment and your given an iMac to use as a server /facepalm
And to make it worse... was asked if that iMac could still be used as a dev machine at the same time!
No I installed ESXi on it now (managed to get that working) massive facepalm1
I was wondering if it was worth learning how to use emacs for dev? Vim is more of a Notepad than a IDE, but emacs is not very sexy. Some advices?2
Think im going to cry,
Just got asked to help set up visual studio,

Not really sure about a good dev teacher experience... most of them either bullshitted or had a beef with me... learnt most of the stuff on my own i guess
Finding a dev for our dutch team is hard. Our demands are not that big. Can be a junior or senior php guy. Bit of front end required. Any tips? How would you like to be contacted?18
Not a dev job, but was once called about a month after I applied for a job and was told they put me at the top of their pile of applications and never heard from them again
with me its the other way around
not becoming a dev helped me to look at problems like a dev and solving them more or less XD
The worst project i work on is my actual project, this is not a dev project but a "Run the Bank" project !
check 3 times a day that servers are okay, logs are okay, unduserssolvedunderstand and give the "how to fix" to the dev team #pan1
Can anyone suggest good newsletters/forums for dev articles?
lobste.rs is one such good forum I know.
dev.to can be good at times but it doesn't really have a lot of good posts for someone who's not a newbie.2
Top reason to not be a dev? There are so many ways to shoot yourself in a foot. Some of them are creative, some of them are fun. Unless it happens to you.1
!rant - Does anyone know if there is like a stack overflow (basically a community) that is simply for dev discussion? Like recommendations etc? DevRant is kinda perfect but strictly speaking it's not a discussion community, it's for rants.4
web dev. ui/ux. full stack.
I am not a senior developer but im doing multiple jobs like full stack dev, ux designer and architect.
I only like front end given the choices.
I want to do some vr but the market seems not ready for that so i can only do some learning at home.
What do you have: a "dev" or a "workplace" directory in your home? I always had a "dev" for my projects and I think I'm not alone, but I can't be sure10
This is random not a rant but An appreciation letter to all chill teachers thx for letting devs talk about developing applications.
thank you sincerely one random dev!
That I did not have the rant idea earlier when I see a rant that could have come out of my dev life.
Trying not to end it all at the thought of a whole game dev team working through perforce. Incoming "oops I checked out the whole thing"
Not dev related but reasons for taking a week old baby on a flight: go!
You have 3 hours till I land3
Most of the code I write are adopted from SO answers and dev blogs, am I a terrible coder or not even one?
Im not so experienced and feels great when an opportunity of helping another dev appears. What a great community we have
Helped SO's parents with web dev I'm a bid to get to know them better. Figure the rest. Don't help family. Atleast not for free. Rather, just don't, unless you're okay with multiple change requests.
