Search - "parasites"
I really don't appreciate the new generation of developers I'm working with. They either turn into arrogant little shits or become life-sucking parasites. I'm not talking about age or anything. I have one developer who is older than me and has a higher rank. Every batch of "trainees" I get act like you're giving them a puzzle and they can just quit and say "I give up" then you'll give them all the answers. It's like they don't even think.
Aren't we here to solve problems? What happens when you start facing real problems instead of "exercise (quiz) problems" that already have solutions? Are you gonna say "I quit, give me the answers"? Who will give you that when nobody knows the answer yet and it's your job to figure it out? I wonder if they even consider the fact that they are hired to help the team, to contribute something, not make everything worse. They have become so entitled as if companies are just supposed to give them money for nothing.
The ones who learn end up becoming arrogant and acting like gods putting down all their colleagues for not knowing something they don't know yet. Do you remember me putting you down and telling you how stupid you are for not knowing that when I was teaching you? So where the fuck did you inherit this attitude?12
Don't you think it's unfair that a group project where only 2 out of 6 people actually worked their butt off for a whole school year but everyone 'miraculously' passes? Yeah, this happened to me. They stuck to my group like parasites just to pass10
Classmates? More like FUCKING PARASITES!
I work in a group on for on the notes using google docs, for realtime collaboration. WE spend lots of hours in school making them something. Then share it with one good friend and BANG the whole class has them, even though he was not supposed to share it. AND DO YOU EXPECT ONE OF THEM EVEN THANKED US FOR THE WORK WE PUT IN THERE MAKING THESE? The most I heard were fucking complaints. I should let the sniff a razerblade for each complaint and hope they improve their brain capabilities to the level of 0.4
I searched for a song remix on YouTube (NewPipe). The first result was a "nightcore remix".
If I knew that adjusting 3 sliders is all it takes to "remix" a song, I would have thrown away all these useless documents about programming, become a dj and live of other people's work.
Let's not even talk about the fact that the song I search for is meant to be a slow one. Judging for the quality, scaled it was down to 32kbit12
Most QAs are dumb beasts, unable to think clearly or rationally, lazy parasites that suck the lifeblood out of a project.
Except this one guy I work with. He blackmailed the CTO to move, and landed himself a junior dev job.
He joined my team a few months ago.
"Right" says I "forget the crap you've learned so far. Here's a list of algorithm books from Amazon. Order them and read them. There'll be a test at the end."
He did. He is now reviewing lead dev work and merrily trolling their poorly performing work. Speaking to them in Big O (and so confusing the crap out of them) and earning stars at every turn.
I'd like to think I had a hand but all the effort was his.8
