So we hired a part time sales lady to work in our office. She sits right inside the entry to our area. Each morning I am amazed that I can make it to my desk without passing out. All I can think is this:6
So what are you studying?
Oh, so sit infront of the computer everday?
For the most part, yes, but I also d...
What a waste of time, you and your videogame-internet. Back in my days...
-every conversation with elderly people ever.16
The worst part of being a developer?
So many ideas, so many possibilities... But so little time to do all of it. :'(4
Today I signed my first contract!!!
This is still a start14
Not a rant! 😁
For the first time in 21 years, ya girl landed herself a job!
It's a part-time paid internship to work at the IT help-desk for a company. Not hugely glamorous, but for the first job in my whole life, I am pretty excited & happy 😊
And as an extra bonus, my partner got the job too!! Yay :)9
"and what do you do for a living?"
"I study software engineering and work as a software engineer part time"
"Really? You don't look like it!"
"Excuse me? What do I have to look like?"
The stereotypes are strong in development...6
Just got laid off from full-time salaried position due to various business circumstances. I absolutely loved working there because they paid well, are low demand, they were 100% remote before it was COVID cool, and they didn’t micromanage anyone. Will continue to work for same employer but on hourly work order basis. I’m fighting the “provider” urge to find something else full-time as quickly as possible. My wife, who’s also working part time, says I shouldn’t be in a hurry and take my time to find just the type of job I really want. She’ll even go full-time while I search.
I’m the luckiest unlucky guy.15
When you are on location (football stadium in this case) and you realize that some part of the algorithm isn't working quite right.
We are building a webapp for a little bet-game for our local football team and today was the first live test. I fixed the way the points are calculated in the half-time break.
You can edit code on mobile on gitlab. Doesn't mean you should, but you could. And I did.26
So, rage time.
A few months ago I inherited a big Wordpress website, with around 750 pages.
The client has reported the main menu is broken.
Upon looking at the code it appears the previous "Wordpress Developer" (ahem ...) attempted to rewrite navigation system - no idea why.
As part of the 4000 class below is a screenshot of part of the file where he's determining if the current menu item is active, within a loop. Whilst the whole if statement spans 409 lines - the code basically continues exactly the same downwards.
An engineer was working on a windows server. Needed to partition something so typed 'part' in the windows search thingy (windows 10).
Few results found:
Part time working
Engineer: Jesus fucking Christ I just want the FUCKING partitioner, windows what the actual fuck.26
That moment when a friend was talking to you about an artificial intelligence he is building that is supposed to be a voice assistence and "even better" than Cortana. After a long time I asked him for the code like I wanted to check out the revolutionary techniques of machine learning he was talking about. So here is a short part of the 600 lines long "voice logic".
I almost started crying 😂😂16
One of my favorite quotes:
"A lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine"
Had to apply this liberally at my last job. Even had it posted at my desk for a time.1
Probably the intern who, while a decent and intelligent guy for the most part, thought it was increasingly hilarious to keep putting random cat GIFs somewhere in the product with each PR he made.
First time "ok, very funny, but you can't do that in production software, don't do it again."
The third time around the "joke" was wearing a little thin.
Eventually a script was written so that, every time he made a PR, he'd get "emailed" one of a few pre-defined messages from a random member of the team a few minutes later, telling him to remove it and stop pissing about...3
Anyone who remembers my last rant about getting fake chips might enjoy this.
After realizing that the EEPROMs I got last time were counterfeit, I bought a new set (and different model) from Atmel. They were super easy to hook up, and the best part is they actually work! Behold, my bit-by-bit EEPROM programmer:10
Team devRant here.
Some sad news, my teammate can't participate for reasons I don't need to disclose.
I'm not stopping though, I'm going in alone! (Or well, physically).
I'll post the link to the updates (and more) site later on but the important part:
It starts at 12pm EU/Amsterdam time and stops tomorrow at that same time!
Working on a livestream =)
Hey fellow selfish Millenials who want to be paid for their valuable work, how's the job hunting going?
I'm a few days into hunting for some interesting part time work and I'm already encountering some real gems... Pinnacle of irony with this one.
Anyone got some horrific tales to share? This is a safe space for your anguish to finally be released, I promise.15
3 years, part time, $0.
I used to volunteer my time to an old text based rpg, handling code changes, sysadmin maintenance and the likes - back when those were a thing in the mid 2000's and money wasn't my issue in life - free for them, experience for me - win win!
Was something to get my hands dirty back in the day and contribute to an active community, but since then that place has shut down and been disbanded.24
What the fuck, it says on both my LinkedIn profile and on my CV that I'm a student but I can take on part time projects, and I also told a recruiter the same thing over phone (after he found me on LinkedIn).
Today I had lunch with said recruiter. Guess who had no clue I was a student?11
The hardest part of programming is not the inner workings of the chosen frameworks and tech.
It's the damn naming.
I will spend hours trying to figure out what to name things for sense and clarity and then a fraction of that time coding it together.
*me, staring out the window*
"Hey dude can you--"
"Ssshhh. I'm naming things."15
Told the recruiter about 4 times before my lunch interview that I was a working student (I could only take part time jobs).
Just as we sat down and got our food he asked me where I currently worked, and I gently reminded him that I was still, in fact, a student.
He had this weir look on his face as I had tried to trick him into a free lunch, as all the positions he had was for full time jobs.
Still ate the lunch and had awkward small talk the entire time.6
When you are a CS major/part time developer and your uncle gives you a swiss army knife as a present "so if you have to fix computers you have the screwdriver ready"3
Boss's son (who, despite being 19 and having no formal education or experience, was head of the technical team, consisting of one ops guys, one part-time web developer, and one part-time data entry/programmer) brought a cross bow to work. Just strolled in with it one day and took it back to his office, walking past all the visibly uncomfortable employees. One of the marketing ladies said to him "wow that's a bit scary" but it had no effect. He also wore a trench coat and kept a flying squirrel in a sock in his pocket.
At another place (not doing dev work) I had my manger tell me to type more slowly to get all my hours in, as I was promised 20/wk but they had about 3 hours of work for me to do. I quit after a month.7
The worst part of debugging my code isn't the hours of wasted time, it's the fact I know I wrote my own damn bug!2
So today, i taught my professor something, and he was genuinely curious. I also told him about my part time job building websites. He is a really cool guy and wasn't a dick about a student knowing something more than himself. There should be more professors like him.
What a wonderful world we live in!5
Got a holiday job at a local IT company and I therefore have to go by train everyday 2 hours in total.
Enough time to browse Devrant and to realize what of a great community it has. Thanks for being a part of it!15
Adventures in security land, part II:
I’m getting pulled off the security review team and instead relegated to part-time security tickets alongside my usual dev work. (So, someone else finds them, i fix them.)
Guess I found and debated too many problems with the lead dev’s code. 🙄13
I was looking for a part time job when I was 15, knew nothing about coding, got a developer job cause I said I'm keen to learn xD .. 5 years later.. I'm still learning but I have a better knowledge now!4
First and last time I used tinder, the guy figured that I know sOmeThIng aBoUt Co_0mpUters and asked me to fix some stuff on his website. I can't complain, it was the least boring part of this "date". And free coffee.
I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO GET A MATHS PART OF MY RENDERER WORKING FOR TWO DAYS NOW AND IT HAS BEEN WORKING THE WHOLE TIME BUT I WAS USING THE WRONG VALUES TO TEST IT THIS ALWAYS HAPPENS TO ME I WANT TO DIE18
Used to build custom computers... Used to get calls from pissed off people that their cup holder was poorly designed and broke off... One guy even called about it a second time... After we explained what this was for and replaced the part.... SMH10
Worst part of devving? Handling fucking time. GMT, EST, daylight savings, DHCP settings overriding the actual time because some fuckwit runs a server incorrectly, dealing with Voip phones and their super flaky time profiles. Fuck time.4
I hate this work from home shit with your family around. "You're always in front of the computer, go workout, go socialize, its family time"
What part of "work from home" you don't understand. SMH!9
After 2 years of Debian this feels just wrong.
//setting up dual boot for a course
// yeah I am just a part time dev10
Been looking for a part time game dev job to pass the time during summer break, got a reply from a guy.
This part came up some time in the middle of our conversation:
Me: So, do you have a version control system in place?
Him: Excuse me, a what?
Me: A Version control system, like Git.
Him: Ow, what's that?
Me: It is a way to host projects in a more productive way for two or more people. It allows us to share our work more easily and work on the same file without overwriting and losing data.
Him: Ow, like Dropbox?
He was developing the game solo thus far and no idea such thing existed.
As a student I was looking for part time jobs, one of the job postings was titled "Database assistant". When I looked at the job description, its about filling out excel sheets -_-3
Unpopular opinion: I hate when people start their rants with "unpopular opinion". Most of the time it seems like a pretty standard opinion too! "Unpopular opinion: I hate Wordpress" Yeah so does a lot of people! Just rant for rantings sake! Don't give me your inaccurate market research as a part of the deal!5
So this is how they "teach" us in school...As a part time dev I was completely shocked when I saw this in our materials. What do you think? Should I drop the teachers tables to give him a lesson?14
There are three things in my workflow that I don't like:
1. Feature requests appearing out of thin air.
It's common to be handled work at 2pm that needs to be deployed by the end of day. Usually it's bug fixes, and that's ok I guess, but sometimes it's brand new features. How the fuck am I supposed to do a good job in such a short time? I don't even have time to wrap my head around the details and I'm expected to implement it, test it, make sure it doesn't break anything and make it pass through code review? With still time to deploy and make sure it's ok? In a few hours? I'm not fucking superman!
2. Not being asked about estimates.
Everything is handed to me with a fixed deadline, usually pulled off my PM's ass, who has no frontend experience. "You have two weeks to make this website." "You must have this done this by tomorrow morning." The result, of course, is rushed code that was barely tested (by hand, no time for unit or integration tests).
3. Being the last part of the product development process.
Being the last part means that our deadlines are the most strict. If we don't meet the deadline, the client will be pissed. The thing is, the design part is usually the one that exceeds its time (because clients keep asking for changes). So when the project lands on our desks it's already delayed and we have to rush it.
This all sounds too much like bad planning to me. I guess it's the result of not doing scrum. There are no sprints, no planning meetings, only weekly status update meetings. Are your jobs similar? Is it just usual "agency work"?
I'm so tired of the constant pressure and having to rush my work. Oh, and the worst part is we don't have time for anything else. We're still stuck with webpack 2 because we never have time to update it ffs.6
That moment when you copy something then hit ctrl+c instead of ctrl+v to paste and realize what you have done a split second later... Every time I do this a little part of me dies8
My biggest regret: Going to talk to my boss that I want more responsibilities. Now I am an underpaid boss of 7 people, and the sadest part is, that I have no time for coding anymore 😠4
The moment when you as an apprentice have to maintain the code of a java web application which was mostly written in 2004 with java 1.4.....
The most terrible part is that the production environment runs still java 1.7 and you think about the fancy java 8 features all the time😐😑😐8
The worst part about having a job that is not related to programming is that I don't have as much time to code as I would like to :(5
A friend wanted me to build him csgo gambling site in a month, just about the time all of the controversy was happening.
He said - create it for me please and if we succeed I'll give you part of the profit, there will be money for you.4
Part of a product I used to work on contained a one time password generator that randomly strung together a few words from a word list.
Nothing wrong with the security, but this word list hadn't been filtered, so we did have a "bug report" from a customer who had a one time password that contained a questionable phrase:
"fucking pork Muslim"
...Call me a terrible person, but I never did get around to fixing that...3
Sometimes, I find myself around a bunch of annoying newbs who ask dumb questions...
because I'm a part time CS instructor at a high school...
but when I see light bulbs switch on and the smell of enthusiasm in the air, makes teaching so worth it.5
If it weren't for all the people who deleted their accounts, my avatar would be wearing a suit and tie right now.
Tsk tsk tak...
Now my avatar looks like a part time pimp + full time cs student. 😎😒👩🏻💻19
Found a Gameboy mostly-buried on the side of the interstate. Hadn't been long as it's uniform color and part of it was unburied, but it works, so i'm keeping it. Who the fuck takes the time to bury a DMG next to an interstate and why???15
Every time some assholes decide to mix part of the business logic inside the presentation layer.
// Let's query the db here...
/* Hey, I'm a JSP! Why not defining some custom logic here, so nobody will able to debug it? */
Started part time job at a company, had to log my time on timesheets. Said fuck this and now the whole company logs their hours on a custom web based time logging system which I built.5
Incase you wonder where I am gone to: Well. Looks like I'm a part time irganist now xD
Yes, this is me,
Yes, this is very fun,
Yes, I deliberately go to church X)
(I still code a lot)13
Best time to learn something new?
Best way to learn something new?
-By doing it. Practice makes perfect.
I wasted so much time and never got anywhere because I wanted to get it right. Fucking up is part of the learning process.2
I have now an interview for a part time job as dev-allrounder beside my CS-studies.
I hope I get that job.. 🙏🏼6
When I was a young boy and I was writing my first programs, I remember I was sad because they were fast, unlike other applications I used daily and admired, with their long splash screens and the hard drive constantly making noise whenever you performed an action. At that time for me, 'slow' meant 'serious'.
It's fun to see how things have changed today: ensuring performance is a critical part of my job, and DAMMIT WHY HASN'T THE WEB PAGE LOADED YET?!?2
What the fuck man.
Why even I am working with this assholes.
Yesterday,Our technical support guy reinstalled windows(I don't mess up with technical issues because then it will be my part time job,so I show that I don't know anything about hardware).
He installed fucking 32 bit window,He was trying to installed 64 bit version thunderbird.
He wasted my whole day.16
Spending a lot of time in 'recent' I greet many people with "Welcome to devRant" every day.
The funny part: half of them used devRant before I even knew it existed but they just now decided to write their first rant8
API returns two date time in json (x-date-time, y-date-time) both of which are coming wrong.
Instructions for consuming API :
Take date part from y-date-time and time part from x-date-time and combine them so you would have the desired result1
As a CS student, where should I invest my time between these options ?
- Get a higher GPA
- Invest in personal project
- Contribute to open source project
- Have a part-time internship during school
- Take time for myself
I would like to have opinions based on your personal experiences !30
Caught cold badly.
The worst part is that must finish the android project so I don't even have time for sleep.
I can't concentrate 😭
I hate Laravel.
Every time I want to implement something it is already part of the laravel framework and does work better than I can ever imagine. Where is my struggle?!1
To me, it seems like the rise of distributed systems like mesos / kubernetes combined with Docker require you to be master sysadmin, veteran kernel hacker and a part time c developer ALL AT ONCE if you really want to shave off time from debugging/ performance tuning sessions. Anyone wish they paid more attention in class ? Lol.4
Worst part of being a dev...working for a company that doesn't understand your potential. Knowing that you can do so much more than they are but being limited due to a myriad of excuses, budget, time, user base, etc.3
So there is this programming competition i regularly enter. I dont give a shit about the competition part, its just fun to make something in a limited time. This year, i was kinda hyped that i threw together a modern stack, with Java Spark and VueJS, that would be really cool to use.
Today we got the requirements.
Php and jquery.
Well fuck me for living in 2017 apparently.1
I took part in a programming competition yesterday. The computer provided to me crashed just before we begun and took five minutes to reboot. I wrote an inference engine to solve a problem that would have put me in the top 5, but they refused to accept my solution because it was seconds after the submission time despite them being aware I started later than everybody else.2
Last time I post my need-to-be-refactored code, I see some mean-but-useful comments.
Everyone's comments are like: "Look this stupid coder trying to be clever and write an idiotic code, let's bully him because we are better".
Ok guys, sorry for hurting your eyes, but please do it again...
I really want to know your opinion, especially on the part where I try to make the "if condition" more readable by defining some boolean variables.29
My PC died 2 weeks ago. I've been stuck on mobile since and will be too broke for a new machine for an indefinite (though certainly not infinite) period.
It's hell. One can only read so many ebooks and meditate so much.
What's the longest you've ever been without your machine, unwillingly?
Worst part is I was just starting a pet project and now it's on hold!
Pic related, my feels as time drags on when I'm not at work.11
Started using windows mixed reality for part of my work day, best part, using Cortana voice activation to do things in my virtual space, worst part, every time i say 'hey Cortana,' my google home makes a snide remark.
Your favourite comment?
My team was working on a legacy system, one part of it is an assistant, sadly required as global variables.
Being a non-english-first-language company, some dev years ago thought shortening said assistant to "ass" would be a wise idea - less to type, right?
When we redid the application 2016 part-by-part, our code needed to define 3-4 global variables starting with the "ass" prefix for the legacy parts to work. The colleague who was tasked with this is a fine gentleman from England.
Later as I read through the commit, I found 5 lines of code following 20 lines of comments explaining and deeply apologizing for "ass", "ass_open", etc.
The same dev also had a "HACK OF THE YEAR" comment he moved around when time constraints made a less-than-optimal fix necessary which was worse than the last "highscore".1
O'joy has come, it is time to make the best if/switch statement...
Worst part I can't see a pattern in this, so I have to hardcode all this shit.
Even worser part, it has to be updated yearly... woop w00p9
- Master C# and contribute to osu!lazer
- Get a girlfriend (preferably programmer as well)
- Own a gaming rig
- Get a cat
- Survive National Graduation/University Admission Test (not China, Vietnam)
- Go to GER to hug my friend
- Break through my depression and suicidal tendency (not a joke)
- Get a part-time job at a tea house near school6
Small part of People across planet recognize me I have less free time, lots of headaches, happiness from working code.
I was hired to do a massive project as a temp. I got part way done and they hired me full time to finish. Then I moved to putting out production fires for unrelated systems until I left.2
Some of the best mentoring has actually been from the devRant community on how not to get burned out as a developer.
Take it section by section. Don’t spend a lot of time on one part. Work on it for a bit then move on to a new part and so on.
Thanks devRant Community
Damnit! Every time! Our UI Dev asks us to change the API every time he wants something different!
The API is backend -> business logic. You don't change your business according to what fucking color you want on your site!
Sad part is since he's senior I don't want to tell him off4
Client - "hi, I got the mail. Is the app complete.......","...you've done this part?....","...have you done that blabla section..."
😑..I already wrote it in the mail that it is complete, dumbass. And Why don't u just flipping RUN it and see if this part and that section is working properly and tell me if your highness can spot something incomplete.
No I'm not overreacting. He acts like this all the time.2
Hope you all are surviving well
Few changes here and there in my life and staying away from lots of things including DR. Not technically a rant but kinda a summary of my current life story.
- broke up with gf (to be precise, I dumped her because I don't wanna have a RS anymore). Pretty bad thing for her and she is still having a hard time accepting it.
- took a second job, part-time.
- trying to get few more part-time/consultant kind of jobs.
- step down from CEO/CTO position at my business and trying to focus just to be a better CTO.
- 80% of sale teams resigned or asked them to resign.
- found a new investor but no cash received yet.
- have to touch nodejs (at the part-time job).
- left side eyelid is twitching pretty frequently lately.
Not much. That's about it. Now let me check what the heck are you all up to lately.22
#1 Take French language lessons to revive my long time ago knowledge.
#2 Read as many as I can books on dev topics
#3 Do more outdoor activities (sports)
#4 Liquidate my fucking bank loan
#5 Buy some nice wheels for my car
#6 Try to socialize more
#7 Be part of aiding childrens in need / abandoned ones
Time I made a friend... oh due to code?
Well yea let’s solve the first part of this first 😢
Actually I met my significant other putting my self through tafe (you aussies will know) nearly 10 years ago so I guess that counts 😎2
My dev superpower would be finding bugs instantly, because I think looking for bugs is the most time consuming part in programming.1
Two month without without gambling. I am proud of myself, got cleaned. Now I am building python course and got part time client hour basis for fare price.4
Ahh if only this were true... (The Google part)
Nice day tho... Next time I need to remember to bring my selfie stick...4
Finally woke up 4:00 Am and started my daily timetable perfectly. Just hope I can keep it up and finish my C# project on time.
(The only tricky part is resisting against assassin's creed origins I've recently installed 😀)1
I’ve noticed a bug in HR that I would like to report. Steps to reproduce:
1. Get offer on LinkedIn/Email
2. Respond politely and optimistically that you’re interested but would like to scale down you’re hours to 32 per week, changes in pay are accepted.
Result: 404 Not found
Expected result: I’m only human let me work part time pls6
Had a job interview today as a Junior Python dev. The hardest part: they asked things, that I used to learn in some time in the past, but got rusty in my memory because I don't use em much. Like "to write func that sorts array". Last time I was writing sorting without standard library at least half a year ago. Same with the regular expressions (need em the most once in several months) or sql expressions (last time - 7 month ago). How to remember these things?9
My professor gave us an individual and group project at the same time. And each sub part of each project was due with 3 days in between3
When me and 2 friends/officemates of mine, formed a freelance team to work part time for us to pay the bond contract on our full time job. We were able to leave 9 months after forming the team.3
12 years in the industry. For significant part of that time, I've juggled leadership roles, project management, customer facing role, testing, hardware debugging, marketing .......
Oh, I also code.
My designation is still a software engineer.2
You know what I fucking hate? Going to interviews with 4-5-6 different steps and then not getting the job.
The worst part about this time is that I've been to 6/7 of these... And still not gotten anything.2
One time in college we had an android project for one of our courses. Then this one member of my team didn't want to install Android studio because he didn't want to install any unnecessary software and libraries to his machine. We wanted to do his part editing directly in github.5
Fuck you scp. I was uploading 6GB file to an EC2 server. Well, needless to say, "no space left on device" after all 6GB transferred was the biggest FUCK YOU moment. Seriously. Send the file size and check before you waste 30 minutes of my time. Oh, and don't read CLI command data as part of the transfer. You suck.9
I freelanced for a startup one time, and found out they had ten of thousands of records stored in their DB about dental patients, inducing name, address, social security #, some medical history, etc. All in plain text. Worst part is they hired me after a 20 min phone call, and didn't even sign a NDA!
Makes me paranoid to use the Internet knowing what some of these companies do.2
The hard part of participating in an open source project is finding out how to build it for the first time.2
It's upsetting to work on something, spend my time and mind on it, for someone to just undo it. The worst part is that i think i'll have to redo it next week.5
I started my part time job as a tutor today. Yesterday (while preparing) I learned how a browser actually renders a page and bunch of other stuff. Don't get me wrong, I kind of knew it. But not in such detail that I could ever explain it... even though I work in web development since 2011
This will be fun, I wonder what I will learn next2
To the front end dev that 'finished' his part of a web form with a Hundred pluss fields. You left every id, name, and label-for as 'first-name'.
I know it saves you time to copy paste and only change what's visible on the page, but FUUUUUUCK YOU!
We won a competition - it was the first time he has taken part on it - and we had 1. place (me :p) and 2. place.
He was happy like a small kid, hung the certificate on the wall, made photos with our principal and the winners and we got in the newspaper xD4
My first (student/part time) developer interview tomorrow! I'm not 100% sure what to expect since this is my first interview of this type. Nervous and excited though!3
Trying to get part time or remote mobile app development job in Milan.
Somehow got a job interview for a company based in USA for remote work. Cleared 3 rounds, got the final contract. For the final assessment, had to make changes in their existing project. Didn't get proper answer to my queries on time. Submitted results as per understanding. Got a rejection mail rn.
It was going on for 3 weeks and all my hopes were based on that.
Feeling Fcuked up.
Had my first interview for a part time Php job at a student company at my school yesterday.
If I have to guess, it all went pretty well.
Let's hope I make it to the second interview round 😁10
So I'm two weeks into my vacation now, and haven't actually touched any code during this time. Do you guys program when you have vacation?
To be more specific, I'm spending the first part of my vacation at home ;)9
So I wrote a python code and was waiting for +1 on code review and I needed to merge it fast. That shit of a reviewer took his time to finally NOT give a +1 with comment, "if statement has no else part". OF COURSE IT DOESN'T HAVE ELSE PART. I DON'T NEED A ELSE PART. But to give him the benefit of doubt, I'd like to ask devRant community if they believe all ifs should have elses.14
getting part time job as a "junior web developer" while doing my uni, things go well at first. Now my profession is, senior web developer ... and database administrator, and server admin, and the one who call for hotfixes, and who code js for frontend, while under paid because I am still "a college student" ..3
I was wondering why every time my my code is accessing the !valid() part to later realize I was coming back to it = its state is reset = I need a break T_T
P.S. if you find anything in my code make sure to let me know :)9
that moment when you're looking for part time dev positions but everyone wants full-timers #CollegeLife6
this www.xmlrant.com project I created turns to be quite a learning experience
Things I did for the first time as part of it
- submitted a public nuget package
- worked with .net core library and mvc application
- integrated mvc's app github repo with continious integration platform appVeyor9
Those of you who run Linux *exclusively*... What are you doing in the OS that makes it a big deal for you?
Personally, I spend the bulk of my time in *apps*---editor, IDE, browser, messaging, calendar, etc. OK, a little time in command line, but minutes a day, if I add it up. And I can get Bash anywhere.
Now, you could argue that, if I spend most of my time in apps, then I should have a minimalist OS. Fair comment. Is that all it is?
But, I feel OS is quite an unimportant part of my day. App launcher for much of it.16
As of late I'm creating private game servers on my local network in my free time for fun / relaxing
I've already running:
a World of Warcraft vanilla;
Travian version 3;
And I am currently working on a conquer online private server, but getting the right client for it is the hard part...4
Ability to ask the right question the first time.
Sometimes the hardest part of development work is first understanding the question that’s needed.. the answer isn’t typically hard to formulate from there.
Has anyone ever actually tried moving to a nice tropical place while making a good living working only 50% part time as a remote developer? It seems like it’s always a friend of a friend of a friend.6
Third party vendor whose shitty API we have to use as part of our application blocks our account IN PRODUCTION without even telling us every time they have a slowdown because of course it must be us. Yeah, I didn't want to go home anyway🖕1
Night time depression+anxiety combo is super fun!
Specially that part that tells you "check your emails" and then you find like 69 more reasons to worry.
I should just call it quits and become a middle manager. Or is it too late? 😬9
Wow... I haven't done complex/algorithmic level coding for maybe 6 months (yes that's how mindless my day job usually is)...
Now I just finished part of the code for a scheduling app I'm doing just for fun... Though there is also a use case at work but I don't have the free time to think about problems at this level...
Side project is swift. Loads of feedback! I'm happy. Fucked up part is the users who wants it uses Android. Oh well, time to learn React Native2
Remember that time I did an interview and it went horribly and I wanted to die then got called back and aced that shit? Well I got the job. Pay is bunkers too. Excited to be part of a new very cool project.2
I always hate that part of the project where you finish all the coding and start trying to deploy into production for the first time.6
I quit my education to go on a path to become a self-taught developer. It doesn't work out that well. I still have a part time job. Which doesn't cover all my expenses. I don't have a degree and nobody wants to hire me. I am getting a second job which leaves me little time for coding. Soooo yeah... Mistakes were made.24
After a long time here.
What's happening in this coolest part of the world?
What all I missed!!!!1
The hardest part about fridays is when most of your work is finished, you don't want to start a new task at 3p so you pretty much gaff off rest of day but have to find a task to put that gaff off time on. Becomes harder than actually just starting another task because you have to judge exactly how long it will take you to do a pending task (that you are going to put your gaff off time on) and ensure that gaff off time won't bust the tasks time estimate when you actually do the task.3
Today I asked a stupid question on stackoverflow
Got a reply which I already knew
I just hadn’t implemented it as it had to be put in a complex part of code step by step.
I took the time and implemented the solution step by step and it worked.
Why have I become like this.....old and stupid....2
Every time I go to use a local app that uses Java...
My favorite part is that when I update JAVA it tries to install a Yahoo toolbar. They are totally related right. I like the language but the framework somewhat makes me crazy.1
Built an iPhone app for free for a local nonprofit. This directly lands me a part time well paid internship offer.
And they say you should never work for free3
Finally ended, the stupid meeting which was going from last 4 hours for a web app. In the end I got to know that I'm not part of it.
Wow, what a wonderful way to waste my time.3
First time ever merging two massive networks.
If this doesn't give me pain, technically my thesis work is done. Prettification, optimization, and the actual writing is left, but the main part is done.
And when this is done, I shall feel epic.7
So I was watching Your Lie in April while waiting for Android to build
Let's just say that wasn't a pleasant experience after NDK OOM'ed the exact time the saddest part happened
IM NOT CRYING YOU'RE CRYING ;_;2
Best advice so far: "KISS: Keep It Simple and Stupid"
That works every time because your design of the code will be understandable. Your code must seldom to be refactored. You aren't that asshole who never comment and document anything. And the most important part: The code works as designed without flaws!4
Colleagues at my part-time job:
"You study programming right? Amazing we've got this great app idea, we'd love to see a finished product in 2 months"
I'm generally the type of person that keeps to myself, I don't judge people by the way they look or what god they believe in. BUT... There is a part of me that gets sooo angry, like a demon raging inside of me every time I see this fucker rock up to work with his socks and sandals, I know it shouldn't bother me, but every time he sits down next to me and i can see his dirty, stained toe jam ridden socks, there is a part of me just wants to rage in his face.3
Apparently some smart shithead decided to override ctrl+f browser behavior when you edit files directly on github.
Edit renders only part of file and displays search under edit file label that disappears every time you find something. ( what if there is more then one occurrence smartass )
Default ctrl+f can’t find text on page unless it’s displayed.
If you call yourself a developer or consider yourself part of the IT world and at the same time complain about software updates (all those dumb windows update rants) then do one of the following:
1- write a multi -million line of code OS that runs on virtually unlimited number of PC configurations and hardware and get the code right the first time with no major bugs, no security vulnerabilities, and a consistently fast and stable performance.
2- stop calling yourself a dev, or part of the IT world.
If the last 2 options are unreasonable, unachievable, or unfathomable.... Then stop bitching about software updates.23
Question about work experience.
Here in Switzerland you have 4 years of apprenticeship. (School + work, 50/50)
After that most uf us go to a higher degree (BSc oder MSc). Both can be taken part-time. Again about 50/50 school + work.
Now: Do you count thoses years as 8 or 4 or 0 work experience?3
Hello there devranters, long time no see
I have a question for all the computer scientists and students out there. Do you have book recommendations especially for the maths part? I'm in the process of buying some books, they're very expensive but if I'm going to buy they might as well be useful books.8
Just a bit of time ago, I opened my printer, I connected it to my PC and a message on the screen popped up, saying "your print cartridges are counterfeit".
Wtf, I bought them at a normal, very well known italian technology store.
Turns out, they were just dried out, so I had to rub the part where ink comes out (I don't know what's it called, forgive me 😅) and all was good.
The best part of this was that, when the message popped up, it also said "discover the advantages of buying *original* HP cartridges", with a button underneath it saying "HP Rewards".

I spend so much time developing, went to my parents and walkoutside. Cant believe i dont even remeber ever walking at the back part of this place. Actually looks nice. And they have been staying there for 5 years.
Anyhow. Back to the cave for me. Seems the internet is back up
I once had 3 days to make a program that listened on the activity from SMTP servers in a language I've never worked with before and a site presenting the statistics collected from those servers. It was a part time job, 15 hours a week.1
Interview scheduled : 11.30 am
Reached venue: 11.15 am
Waiting for my turn : 2.30 pm
How much time should I wait: some one who is part of team, give me two minutes let me check
Me still waiting for info/my turn: 3.00pm
Chuck this, left venue: 3.00pm
Why do they schedule interviews if they cant manage or provide proper inputs.😤😤6
A Bible app for Android called Tour the Bible. It uses the Google maps API to put a pin in each location as you read so you can follow along and virtually "tour" the Bible.
I had a basic version built but then I switched to Kotlin then I pretty much completely rewrote it to use an api for the Bible content instead of plain .txt files. I still try to work on it in my spare time but with a family, full time job, full time school and part time freelancing I don't get much spare time.2
So I got an offer to do part time on a project that was mismanaged for two years.
After hearing the comments about how ugly the code base was.
I took it. So now I'll have something to rant here. 🤣7
So I have been working on a project for a while now and because the deadline was getting closer the project leader decided to involve a 3rd programmer. All development was due to be finished today. Yesterday the person informed me that he wont be able to finish with his part on time. This came unexpectedly and way too late. I have myself been working really hard to finish my part in the project but now I have to take over his part and finish it. The worst part is that there is liket 40 hours left to finish his part. I don’t know why I’m writing this but I just have to get my emotion out of my chest. My weekend is ruined.8
After moving to my new job, I caved and agreed to stay on part time for my old company.
Worst decision ever2
I typically get constantly interrupted. It’s become part of my workflow. I wish I could work in silence a lot of the time.1
I gotta say I hate and I love the part where I have no idea what I'm doing.
Sometimes it's the last time for that action
designrant / As a prepress media designer who study part time interaction design on fridays, I'm fucked. Every agency in switzerland is searching like crazy for Senior UX Interaction Designer. Because of that, they wont hire me as junior, until i have my degree as interaction designer. And printshops won't hire me because of my study. They say I'm overqualified as a prepress operator. fml! :-/6
For the first time, I solved a pretty serious optimisation problem in our codebase without any external input. It's a little thing, but small victories like this are part of what makes the job so much fun for me.
Currently rewarding myself with coffee and chocolate. I feel good!
Having a CTO who was a strong backend developer, has zero understanding of UI/ UX and frontend part of code is funny as hell, weird and scary at the same time.2
As a part-time student, I have been having a very hard time getting a job. I have worked as a developer before but I had to leave my job due to various reasons but I never stopped brushing up my skills on different levels. So I have an employment gap in my resume. So what?!
Now, the moment an employer hears that I'm still a (fucking part-time) student, the assholes immediately turn their faces away and never call back. And I know that I'm a good developer (at least I can pass the stupid assignments they ask me to solve) and that there's a shortage in good developers in my country anyway. It's just depressing!
Anyway, I had to let it out somewhere. Also, if you have some advice for me, I'd love to hear it.2
If I had a penny for every time, I go on a
site and go to contact/find us and see this.
Which part of you need an API key do people not get?2
So, you have to build an app for your company. Once it is done you submit it for the test team who ignores it completely. Then they assume that the best time to test it is after the production deployment and then everything becomes a urgency.
The best part is the PM trying to make you feel guilty about leaving after 12+ hours of work because you didn't finish everything.1
I'm not exactly a programmer right now but I'm trying my best to become one ASAP. Hats off to you guys. The toughest part is finding motivation and time.5
Since ive started college my will to program has become non-existant. Im a self taught programmer since 12, it used to be MY thing and i loved it. I used to spend hours a day just programming personal projects because i love it. However since college has been getting serious with this being my junior year and having part-time contract work i dont "love it" as much. Im a little scared, i have no time to just code for fun and when i do have time it feels like work because thats the only other time i code.
What should i do guys, i dont want to fall out of love with programming, it's part of who i am and i can feel im losing it.1
Copied a program out of a magazine to draw a picture of a butterfly on a ZX Spectrum when I was about 7. I was not impressed and decided it was way too much effort.
Got to 19, hated my job and decided to do a part time software development degree. Programming had moved on quite a bit by then :)
I got the requirements specifications today.... for something I've worked on for a year and is 9 months delayed due to design constantly changing and management always lagging behind.
Best part is specifications have requirements we have no chance of meeting in time.
Yet another failed deadline. Yafd2
I just realised that working 6 days a week still leaves me more freetime than going to college and working part time1
So here I am trying to Code a Rick Astley video on my website so 2 people can watch it in real-time but the code KEEPS DOING THE PART THAT I SPECIFICALLY TOLD IT NOT TO DO UNTIL I GET THE TIME FROM THE GOD DAMN DATABASE!!!!2
alright yall I need ideas, my wife just got fired along with everyone else and I'm going to have to go back to atleast part time freelance work. I need ideas for a developer site to broadcast my skills in android dev, and backend design. any suggestions will be appreciated.5
Finished up a huge part of an IoT project for an ALS patient. Now it's time for the fun part: Cleaning up the code and making it all pretty.
Every time I'm asked to fix an application written in Visual Basic I think a part of me dies inside5
Just wanted to update you guys on the status of the weather app i was working on.
I have decided to stop working on it for the time being but might return to it at a later date.
The decision was in part due to it being a fairly generic idea in a already saturated market.
Thanks for the support however and hope my next project will be as well received.4
Today, IT director blocked off a part of Friday afternoon on everyone's calendar as "focus time." WTF.6
Still a student, working part time at a dev company, doing small work 'cause they have nothing to make me do, and today the two person I'm supposed to work with are on leave...1
Tried to install WAMP manually to learn PHP. It almost put me off development altogether, but great when it worked and I learnt a lot doing it. The next time I used Xampp before moving on to vagrant & VMs.
Sometimes setting up the Dev environment is the hardest part of learning. But better to learn in dev than production!3
At a time in my life where I am turned down for minimum wage part time jobs but am expected to go for a graduate role that pays more money than I've ever known.
Weird times, man. Weird times.1
- Learn python
- Learn ML
- Move from client projects and start/finish my own project
- Find time/money to start PhD studies
- Find time to do science paper
- Get new car
Had to focus on working when I finished my master so I hope to get back to science part of work
Okay ranters, I'm asking for your help.
I'm currently an IT Technician at a facility. I am doing this part time while finishing up my last year of college. I graduate in April of 2017. I just received a job offer to do Web Development part time in the same city. I'm not sure if they will work with my schedule, but they say they will. I will need to learn PHP, because I haven't used it yet, but learning a new language is easy for me. I'm done with most of the difficult classes in my CS program, but I will need some time devoted to study. I'm unsure whether the job is a golden opportunity or if I'm going to screw myself over and be unable to graduate. What do you guys think?8
I was away for a long time. Now I got a new job which means it's time to start ranting. Fuck this legacy code is worse. I mean, a fucking cat running after a mouse could write a better source code if he had somehow pushed buttons while doing its job. Every fucking best practice I know is crushed to bits. And the funny part is, this company/startup recently got $300.000 funding.2
I screen candidates for this freelancing company part time and i meet all kinds of people. I asked a self proclaimed senior engineer the difference between a get and a post request and he told me with the utmost confidence. “they are both the same”. That’s it. No other explanation was offered.
We were both just stared through the screen awkwardly.11
Never got a bad experience. The only bad part I could think of is I'm the youngest and always solo coding all the time. It's pretty fun tho.
So... This is the deal... I'm currently working part time (15 hours a week) while studying. We have a pretty hectic week at school and my boss is in the states. He told me I could take the week off. Great!
I now have a mailbox close to exploding and 20+ hours of work that has to be done this week. Bye bye weekend
The best part is the satisfaction you get when you see the thing you've worked on for a long time being used and making people happy.
Want to waste some time? Tell duplicity to
- - include /home/user/A/
- - include /home/user/B/
- - exclude /
and watch it backup only *part of* B.2
The best part of being a developer is that you can work and develop at the same time without conflict. Even when you're not on the team.
So finally I could find a part-time job! Better yet, I'll be paid as a full time worker! It's a shame it isn't tech related, I'll be taking care of a small firm's finances. But hey, I got a small office that, as my employer told me, I can use outside of work, for whatever I want! It's been a good year so far!1
Two months in my new job, no task assigned to me yet. Not even one. There's been a budget reallocation, and the team just got dissolved. Will probably be moved to a new team (or not?). Part of me enjoys the free time I'm getting (I get to work on my side projects) but it's kind of depressing that I can't prove to the company how much I love building things while at the same time helping the company. 😔4
Built a e-commerce site using Laravel for the company I work for... I'm part time and only make $12 an hour and I'm technically just a system administrator. Half tempted not to give them the project until they sign a contract that either makes me full time and better pay or like 4% commission for every sale in the site for the first 2 years or something.5
I would have liked to complete a task this week, however the one thing I've been working on has it's requirements changed every time I finish.
I get that things change, but all of this extra logic is far too complex for the issue at hand, and I don't have time to do other assigned things due to how laborious and intensive testing for this part of the application is.
Part time job, that involves coding. Going to classes and also doing coding.... going on devrant... and also doing coding... I'm really amazed that I get anything done.
Hello, anyone got any job search tips and tricks? Generally useful things?

This week I found some time to reinstall the Titan on Ubuntu 20.04.
And the fucker finally can reach all targets in our environment.
Targets don't spawn via active puppet run on the Titan anymore, but via bash/puppetdb magic, which is nice.
Let's see how the storage behaves..

Long time reader, first time poster 🙊
2020: I'll complete semesters 2, 3 & 4 out of 6 for my part time MSc computer science while maintaining my current development job.
Good luck in your own goals everyone!1
I managed to clean up the React part of my project, and now everything is smooth AF *.*
But boy oh boy did I fuck up big time, any console.log() written under the render section of anywhere was triggered around 4 times! I still have to rebuild everything (I only finished the dashboard so far) but it will be cleaner that I could ever hope2
To have a professional job that lets you work remotely from the comfort of your home in your own office; which pays you well enough but doesn't pressurize you into unachievable deadlines. One that gives you ample time to relax and do some part-time projects for yourself. One that lets you spend time and contribute to the communities you're part of and help you grow both professionally and within the community.
Oh, and best of all, work in the open - open source, open culture and transparency.
Still studying, but considering dropping out. I've been working part time in the field since last months of highschool. Going to University seems like a waste of time. I just sit at lectures and listen about things I already know. Worst part of it is that it's extremely depressing, seems like I'm just wasting time I could be spending doing something actually productive. Seems like the only thing keeping me there currently is sunk cost fallacy.
Last week went to a startup conference and set up multiple interviews in some startups and if they go well I'm finally saying goodbye to University.1
I've been working at a consulting company (lone programmer) as a Web Dev for about 2 or 3 months and I'm now skeptical about quitting.
I have the liberty to use any technologies I want, unless we get something already using a certain stack. The atmosphere is great and I only work part-time. The problem is that they have me working like a hog on many different projects simotaneously and expect me to meet deadlines despite new projects coming in weekly. Again, I'm the only programmer here, nobody to help me out. I don't make a killing but the pay isn't too bad considering it's part-time.
I've also noticed that my programming activity has degraded since I started working. I feel like I'm slowly losing the motivation I once had to keep working on my personal side projects.
Any tips on what to do?1
- never push to prod on friday or before lunch time
- doublecheck fucking everything
- test your code before and also after you push it
- you remember yesterday your colleague/boss/pm told you his part will be done by now? well guess what, its not! it never will be...
Got accepted as a part-time FE developer in a well-known company.
Reality check: all I do is maintain a horribly formatted spaghetti code (20k+ lines in a file) using ancient tech like PL/SQL, prototypeJS and IE11.
Buy hey, at least I know some SQL magic now.. Right?!7
the best part?
90% of the time i've to deal with a computer
the worst part?
10% of the time i've to deal with stupid human beings
I want legit data on how many times your second build attempt succeeded though you made absolutely no change from the previous build and sort of hope the compiler will be merciful this time around.
It is the part of the brain that still believes in supernatural stuffs I guess.9
Part of me dies a little inside every time I have to log into GoDaddy for any reason. Is this really going to be our reality for the foreseeable future?2
I'm planning to rewrite two months(part time) worth of work done in android sdk. Wanna go for a hybrid framework. Is this a bad idea? Which framework do you suggest as far as stability is concerned? I don't care about ease of learning, new languages don't bother me2
I work part-time in a small non-tech company as the only developer/tech-support. The work is fine and I got a own laptop.
But fml my laptop is the slowest in office and should be burned already in the stone age.1
Switching to Java after several years of c# experience(new project)... and it feels like lobotomy has been performed on both the language/machine and my part - no var keyword(yet), horrible work with the collections (but thank god we have at least the streams), basic things like Long are actual objects(not a value type), strings must be compared with .equals ... and suddenly even simple tasks take me horrendous amount of time.9
yesterday wrote a huge part of logic. a colleague from other continent said there is a bug. sent me request data, server logs, but I couldn't find what's wrong yesterday.
today I arrived at work and checked it another time and it doesn't work.
"well, maybe he is not that retarded after all!"2
I do not understand how event loop of node is faster than per request new php fpm process or similar.
Imagine you have 10 users surfing your website. In PHP there will be 10 process working on each request.
Where as in NodeJS there is only 1 process taking each request one by one.
Now for the I/O part, it is going to take same time on completion. By the time the IO is completed and the control is back to NodeJs, It will eventually take the same time (the actual response delivered).
Am I missing something here ?4
Me: If I am going to refactor this code I should use test driven design

Is it harder to work a full time dev job or be a full time CS student with a part time dev job? I’m currently living the second one and it’s hard to balance both work and school.7
From log debug to taking care of a whole software written by a guy who does not work in the company and did not spend any time commenting the freaking code.
The best part? The code is not finished and guys above you do not decide what needs to be done but expect stuff from you.
During the time I've been part of the DevRant community, I've noticed that users (including myself) sometimes contribute posts that are not quite rants. These are sometimes posts about the DevRant itself, reaching out to the community for assistance on a project, etc.
This inspired me to create an unofficial Slack chat for the DevRant community. I call it MetaRant.
If you'd like to join then please send an email to:

Anyone know of OSSU? It seems cool, but I don't know anyone that has any experience with it. Would be doing it part time to fill all the gaps of my self learning journey5
Hi devRant community,
First of all, I'm so grateful and thankful for being part
of this awesome community. CHEERS!
I just wanna ask some advices from my super kind and awesome
pile of developers, what is the best thing to do if you're
stucked between creating a certain feature and a raging
girlfriend. I mean, my head is aching. I don't know what to do.
She needs time, but my first love which is programming also
needs much more of my time.
So at work I still haven't gotten enough time to try/learn Docker/Openshift...
Should I just login on weekends to play with it, create some small projects to see how it all works?
One part of me says it my boss really want me to learn it, then he should clear the time for me.
The other part is like "I'm learning this for my own good and it might be fun since I'll finally be doing something new... And then I'll be the smartass on this too"5
I want to build sentiments into the lexical analysis part of compilers, just so that every time my coworker tries to compile his "work", the computer prints,
"*sigh* Brian, just... *sigh*"
I was looking at internships online for my previous studies.
I fill in my cv, look at a couple postings, 1 click apply to 5 of them, within 5 minutes I get a call "When can you come over to our office?"
Made an appointment for the next week on Monday, got there late because health problems, apologized profusely, did a 15 minutes interview.
15 minutes after the interview, I get a call asking when I can start.
After that internship, I got a part-time position, after a year I had to do a new internship, did it at the same company, and after the second one I got a new part-time job.
Still there 2 years after that first internship.5
1. Being assigned as mentor just because my ex-mentor wanted me to be a mentor too or did just for fun. The sad part is the mentee that is assigned to me
2. Bestie coming to my city for convocation but can't meet me because her bf wants all the time together
3. Both 1 and 22
Worst part of being a dev..quite a comprehensive question..i think the most is having to subject yourself to a client's myopic suggestions..which technically makes your job look unprofessional. I end up not leaving my imprint on such jobs..and it feels like a total waste of time.
Part 4 of Mathematica fails that I've been saving for awhile.
Very consistently, the first time I try to save a graphic, it works fine. The second time, it changes the focus to a different tab, but works. The third time, it quits, but does save the graphic.
When I have >=10 graphics to save, this is pretty annoying, especially as if something was saved normally and not via the prompt when quitting Mathematica normally, after crashing it is no longer saved.
Worst part of being a dev is when you need a patch for your sleeping schedule but don't have time for updates
I think the hardest part about being a programmer is to decide what to program in your free time (if you have any)
Am I right?
If not, what is the hardest part in your opinion?1
Get Google Certified Mobile Web Specialist cert.
Start my part time degree in Computer Science.3
I'm a junior-ish dev (worked 3 year part time in a small company)
I've been assigned the happy task of doing some performance profiling on our windows application to see where we can work to make the app run smoother.
Visual studio profiler keeps crashing when generating the report when I do CPU sampling.
I'm a very unhappy Dev right now.1
My Bachelor thesis still needs to be written. I already started attending some Master lectures, working part time as a software developer.
It looks like everything else takes priority over me finishing the B.Sc..
I fear not completing my course, but at the same time I can't throw my work away(I need the money) nor the master course(is a group project).
I have no idea what I should do right now.
Okay guys now real deal.
I am planning to move to Portugal or something like that.
I think I’m gonna need full time remote work, seems like that one is not happening with me now(part time)
Soo I do react, and all kinds of node selenium, bash stuff . But want to improve on redux and go to react native also.
Long story short shoot the work on me :)11
Area: oil & gas
Full time job: SCADA apps, network comms, real time database;
Part time job: drilling app for geologist engineers, real time data acquisition, lots of math calculations and simulations;
I'm loving both jobs, because of working with external acquisition devices, because of freedom of work and complexity of the field.
I guess asking my friends for their opinion is part of my workflow and I really shouldn't do, because their reactions tend to be demotivating and frustrating all the time. As if I don't have enough to worry about already.
Time for an exam about Cloud computing and deploying Microservices to the cloud using kubernetes, followed by another exam about Usage of scientific C libraries. This feels both so disconnected for being part of the same degree.2
After working for about a year and a half at a rather small web company, I've found that poor choices by management frequently result in me getting in trouble. (Adding new requirements to scope, moving up deadlines, etc) So I think my career goals are starting to move more in the direction of freelancing, at least part time.
Does anyone have any experience freelancing? Do you like it? How did you get started?
When I was working as a mentor in my last job, everything new I leared were hardened by teaching it to someone else. Now I am working as a software developer and I feel the necessity of teaching. If I had a chance, I would go back to be a part-time mentor again just for the sake of that kind of productivity.
Worst part (at least that's on my mind today)? People who don't build the app giving the orders of what needs to be done in it. They never know how possible things are, or expect them in half the time it actually takes.
So I'm in my last year of university. The GPA is high. Did one internship the summer after second year in one of the best companies in my country. Third year in my department we do a semester long internship for 5 months, I joined a company and worked on back-end using Go. This was the spring semester and I wanted to continue working in the summer. The internsip company didn't tell me anything so I looked for a job. Found one that paid great, I was getting the salary a new graduate was getting. I worked as a full-stack there. Mostly prototyping, the company was new and I was in the R&D side. After 2 months the company had some budgetary problems and we parted ways. I was in the market again for part-time job in my senior year and because of my prior experience with Go, a friend mentioned me to a company executive he met and I had an interview and got in as a full-stack part-time dev. This was for some background information.
My story is;
Everything is great for some time. It's my fourth month and I think I felt this way because this is the most demanding job I have with senior year and also I didn't know people that well because I was the new guy. Although I still have concerns, have you ever felt this way? If you share tips or any recommendations I would feel great.
Thank you for reading.2
Keeping the part time offer of my current job to continue doing school full time, instead of reversing that and not having to pay for school3
Does anyone know a good place to find part-time Angular or .Net jobs, to be paid hourly?
P.s something other than upwork or fiverr.7
I have a CS undergrad friend who is not learning anything outside of uni and in my country, that will automatically kill your career. I am trying to get him to start coding and learning new languages and frameworks, and do projects, but he has a full time job as a cashier and doesn’t have the time. But i know if I get him to do these things he could probably find a part time dev job that pays just as much. How can you help a complete rookie become a dev in the least amount of time and effort ?3
When someone you work closely with only does development work part time, and it's never the part of the time you have questions and need them to be on Slack.
Since I have a part time dev job I have no time for gaming .
My gaming friends must think that I am dead 😢
Constantly changing conventions for everything, like naming and code formatting conventions.
And the worst part is, I do this several times during one project.
Either I have a project with different conventions or I have to redo a lot.
Most of the time I try to do the last and this costs so much time -.-'
Is part-time remote dev work a thing? I wanna go that route but no clue where to get started. Freelancing? Consulting? Or do companies actually hire part time remote devs?7
Having hard time to make my friend understand that you don't need to build everything from scratch and we can get started for free with commercial solutions for speech recognition and only pay when we have a decent userbase. The worst part is he doesn't believe it even when it is clearly written on the website.3
Site has been in staging for 2 weeks and very few bugs and changes have been submited... Day before luanch don't even know where to start with so many change requests!!!
Every freaking time...
Worst part is that the live date cannot shift.1
I genuinely want tp know why few devs don't add the opening brace on the same line as method/class declaration ??
Whenever I find a piece of code which follow such style a part of me cries thinking of the time I'll be spending first correcting...14
I don't get why my boss wants to outsource the easiest part of our next project to India. Not hating on Indian developers, but the 13 hour time difference that makes coordination unnecessarily hard.
Currently I am taking a cs college degree but I would like to start working/freelancing wtv to earn some practical experience, but no one will hire a first year for anything at all and I dont seem to find any part time jobs that ask for programmers.
So there was this position in our college for part time programming/building a project. Being university students looking for part time work a lot of us applied there.
Finally the person that was selected among all of us was the person who does no work and is completely useless. If you ask her to do something she despite taking a long time doesn't produce any output.
So my question is what did the interviewers see in her that they selected her despite multiple way better people applying.4

I have done a fucking awful thing and its that I started a project and I'm using Flask and SQLAlchemy but the part I'm stuck on is something Ive never done in regular SQL, so I cant even communicate what I want to do properly.
Time to binge some SQL real quick.
Imagine studying for a computer related course and to makeup for living expense, you go for part time jobs.
Now, is it just me or this is just a bad idea to get into a part-time job that is no where related to your study field?
It doesn't make sense to work in MacD or some retail outlet at all.
Ugh... USB protocol with It's over 6 hundred pages specification is pretty complicated thing :/
GOD BLESS LUFA LIBRARY CREATOR. Still not easy, but at least i spent only day for finding out how works important part of it for my project. Btw I was surprised by LUFA's compile-time callbacks, lol.
I'm not liking docker so far. I assume it gets better later, but I've had a miserable experience using it as part of my dev environment so far. Just now I updated it and it broke my db container, so now I'm looking to either downgrade docker or fix the issue, both beings things that take time away from coding.2
So after I had an interview for a part-time(student) position, I got an offer. The only thing I find it weird is shit pay for the thing that I have to implement. A full application with, with a nice architecture and all. Something that you would task a full time middle developer. Cheap work..2
Thinking about starting to do some part time (10-20h/week) as a front end / hybrid app dev(3years experience) Spec stack: Vue, Cordova, D3.
You guys have any advices, recommendations, experiences to share about where to start, I welcome it.
DAMN!! I feel like quitting, I am fucking tired... much work than I could handle.
fucking no options...
the worst part is the fucking poor documentation, have to hit my head on the damn wall, every time I encounter an error.
2 weeks to go...
184 files to customize!
damn, why does life has to be fucking so hard!1
Are there any worthwhile jobs were you (remotely) can code part time on the weekend. Want to make some money on top of my daily job.
Maybe it would also be possible to contribute in the afternoon (since my timezone is utc+2).
Languages of choices would be Java (preferly spring boot stuff) >> Python / JS. Any idea if that is possible?4
My model for one part of my project has become so crazy big I’m become lost every time I add a new feature or debug :-/
trying to make a live usb disk. i took shots at random combinations from 2 usb sticks, 2 oses, different tools or technics on each os... each failed with a different outcome. then i realized i should have kept a failure matrix so that i don't try the same combinations, or can trace the roots of the problem.
each time i need to build a live disk, a part of me dies inside.6
My vision is to work part time as a dev and part time as a writer about mobile app development! I only started recently to write one article each week about interesting topics or my current side projects. Previously I never thought that it would be so much fun to write about what I am doing, but I really enjoy planing and writing these articles 🥳 Maybe some day I will try my luck and apply as an iOS author at raywenderlich.
PS: I would be very glad, if you could give me feedback to my new article! 😁 Help me to achieve my vision 😜 Here is my new article about music and sound effects in a SpriteKit game for iOS:
I don't like BizTalk.
It's very powerful and all but the resource needed to develop, support and maintain far outweigh the benefits.
Everything seems half finished, for example the way to deploy, update and the admin console GUI are all a massive core to work with.
A small part of me dies every time I end up with a BizTalk project.1
Hello everyone! Making my first rant.
I'm enrolled in informatics in university, and I'm learning c++ as part of my course. In my free time, I'm trying to take an online Android course (Udacity). What would you advise me to do to in terms of managing time? I also would like suggestions on programming languages to learn!3
I have planned how to automate everything in my life but don't have the money to do it, I count from 0, if I ever need to count in my fingers for whatever reason, I do it binary, I find tv hacking and programming very stupid and condescending most of the time, and I'm somehow even more of a cynical asshole according to my friends, but that last part might just be from leaving high school
Has anyone felt the need to go back to school after finishing their 4 year degree? There are a handful of reasons why I want to, but for some reason it seems like it might be a waste of time/money.
On the other hand I miss the atmosphere, constant learning, and feeling like I'm a part of a community. Although getting a paycheck is nice.
I've come to my first real fork in my career. I currently work as a web developer for a medical software company. The pay is pretty abysmal but they're flexible and not super demanding. However, my formal education (take this with a grain of salt obviously) is in game development and I've been trying to build my portfolio and what not. I was offered a part-time internship, because I'm still in grad school, I haven't held a part time position since high school. But not only is the position a job I actually want, but the company is pretty great. I'd have to stay part time tell graduation (Next December). But they said they are already interested in transitioning me to full time once I graduate. Another note, I have to get some security clearance for the job, which is another reason they want me to start part time.
So I truly don't like web development and the company I'm at has been very up front that I'm going to stay at this pay rate for a while. But it's possible that they offer me a contract/part time position after I leave (mostly because I'm the one and only web developer and they're already on a hiring freeze). However, if they don't I'd have to scramble to find something else to pay bills for the next year.
Long rant. tl;Dr: should I stay or should I go?6
For someone who want to sell software products as a part time job what is better:-
sell scripts and code in codecanyon, Sell WordPress plugins or buy themes?or you have another suggestion?3
Got an idea for a game, started learning Godot engine to make it myself. usually the hard part for me is the graphics, but this time I just couldn't get it past the tutorial phase, so I switched to Phaser.js, the same problem there... then Pygame, and Godot again, and so on...
I usually love the coding part, I don't know what was the problem this time, It could be the fact that I switched from 2560x1080(Windows desktop) to 1366x768(Debian laptop)... Got any comments that may help?
Me: Time to work on wife's website.
Server: Unable to Validate DMI.
Server: HAHA no CPU information and still no DMI
Me: Remove drives part from SSD.
Server: HI THERE.
so I spent an entire day tracking a major memory leak (10mb/s!!!). when I find it, it turns out that It's in a deep part of C++ code that I'm not allowed to touch. now I live in fear of just crashong my 16gb machine every time I debug.
In Xcode you can't have your project file view AND compile errors/warnings view visible at the same time. You always need to switch between them because they are different tabs in the left panel called the Navigator.
This lack of customizability is the worst part of Xcode.
I frikin' love updating Gitlab, every time I do, I feel a sense of dread that some part of the process breaks and I will have to dive head first into the huge thing, with almost no knowledge of how the internals work!
I usually try to break down what they are asking for into smaller parts. The tricky part is scoping them without granular details of how it will actually get done and thinking only about complexity. Then add up time and give the total a bucket size. 1-5 hrs 6-15, 16-30, 30+ etc. Turn around time is another matter but that's never predictable. By the time clients approve the quote availability is totally different.
I got myself stuck in a studentjob, where I have to do whatever I am told 😥.
We have a 10-minute survey for (former) Ingress players about the Motivation to play the game.
I would appreciate everyone who takes part and gets me closer to the end of my work time (18h remaining 😕).
If you know people who played Ingress for some time, I would appreciate it if you could share the survey with them.2
Worst part of being a dev?
I'm sure it is working on a problem for a long time that you forget what the problem was in the first place...
I just dont. I love my work so I work way to much: fulltime Job as dev project lead in a big advertisment Company, additional to that i work part time as a teacher in a school for it students (15h/week) and then I have 2 customers as freelancer for the weekends :)2
Need to add funcionality into badly written code. Moral problem: I don't want to even look on that code, but I don't have time enough to rewrite that part.2
People selling and buying $30k projects and wondering why the site/application is so simple and shitty.
How about realizing things take time and you, the client, are a core part in the implementation team. You are bound by deadlines as well.
Don't you come knocking on our door demanding explanations when you can't produce materials on an agreed upon deadline.
Started a new job at the same time as another guy. We are doing pull requests, I leave a comment about a one line improvement.
"This is not part of my task. If you want me to do extra run it past our bosses. You can't tell me what to do."
I believe everything has a solution. It's just not visible at the time. So I just leave that part and go home ( or work on something else if I feel like it ). It never happened that some kind of solution didn't come to my mind when I'm thinking afresh.
Si this was a very good and bad week at work. The good part is I finally learned how to properly write tests. Not that I am a pro at it, but at least they don’t suck now.
The bad is I took a ticket that I now see was terribly underestimated, but hopefully I will finish it and the rest on time.
The worst part of being a dev is talking to non-dev people. They cannot understand simple logic. You need to describe things twice or more. They think you should solve the entire problem when they ask just a single question instead of answering this question.
I even cannot understand what those people are talking about most of the time.
Has anyone heard about University of Essex and their part-time online programs - PGCert, PGDip and Masters degrees for Computer Science?10
Sometimes I wonder if God exists why different part of world has different Gods not the same or it just the imagination of different communities at that time.20
As part of mentoring folks was having a round table. All wanted tech help. lists of things to do, learning syllabus, techs to bet on, projects, promotion mantras etc etc.
I asked them how's the work. All started rating about overload and overworked. How difficult it is to find time to do anything else. It became noisy.
So asked how they will find time to do all the above without time. Do they really need mentoring on time management and prioritisation ?
Felt like my invisible tws anc headset turned ON at that moment3
About five months ago, I started a new job as a manager in a nonprofit with approximately 30 full-time employees and over 100 part-time employees. In my department, I inherited one full-time assistant and 15 part-time direct reports. We are a public-facing department with a large social media presence.
The organization’s employee handbook has a clearly-defined business casual dress code policy: no jeans, t-shirts, sneakers, etc. However, everyone here dresses like a slob. On my first day, my assistant was wearing rumpled cargo shorts and a t-shirt with holes. My part-timers routinely show up in jeans, sweatpants, and the type of clothing I’d usually reserve for yard work. My own supervisor wears jeans and an untucked t-shirt.
I’ve always been someone who enjoys dressing up for work. My typical work wardrobe consists of dresses, skirts or slacks, blouses, and blazers. It drives me nuts when people look unpolished and unprofessional at work, but that seems to be the accepted culture around here.
Would it be out of line to enforce the company dress code in my own department, even if it’s not enforced anywhere else? Or am I just being an elitist?3
For most part, after realising I have freedom of implementing and structure my codebase. I have followed only this rule whenever I stumbled into new way of code format/implimentation techniques.
- Understand the structure
- Check if it's new/upcoming way people started coding
- decide should I use it just yet
- implement according.
Adding factors such as time and prefered language, it turns out to be your own personal style.
PS: yes you do follow community conversion but, there's some part of it that makes it unique to you.
Worst part of being a dev: have to wait for the compiler to build, then upload to device, then restart the app... A dozen of seconds are enough to lose concentration and wasting time on something else, which lasts much more than a dozen of seconds.
(opening devRant is by far the best of those wastes)
Best part of being a dev? Being able to build programs and websites which is my hobby, for money. Also, me and my girlfriend met because I was the only website builder at my school at the time, and she needed a website for a project. At this time, we're almost 3 years together 😊 I'd call that pretty damn awesome
I'm here asking for your advice!
I'm a MSc student in my mid 20s, I took a gap year to work as an IT consultant and I'm planning on going back to studying, keeping at the same time a part-time job.
I already have some experience as a data engineer, developer and sys admin. I'm also mastering in applied statistics and data science and have a BSc in physics. I'm planning to relocate around Europe. All I want is a salary I can live with and a good work/study/life balance (perhaps work 24-30hrs a week?).
So far I've checked out a few IT jobs website and I've found some suitable positions. Problem is most of them are fulltime.
Where would you search for such a job? Is there any website/portal I should prefer? How would you proceed?
Should I prefer any place in particular (i.e. Northen countries)?
Thank you in advance <3
Note: I know it's a very broad question, that's because I'm open to any piece of advice you are willing to give me5
I am not so sure about what I am going to do after high school.
I have been working part time as a backend web developer, and I think that the experience combined with my profound interest in the subject has made me quite good for my age.
I also took part in national and international coding competitions.
I am writing all this to prove that, although I am no genius, I have a decent enough curriculum to get a job as soon as I am out.
The problem is, (please save your insults for later) I want to be a Java developer. I just love the syntax, the and the code just forms in my head better than the other languages.
Up until a few years ago I wanted to go to uni and get a 5 year degree in computer science - and I would still like to do so if it is going to help me get away from web development, and I would get lear lots of cool stuff in the mean time.
My question is: should I study computer science?
If I don't get, I could go choose engineering with computer science focus in another uni, but should I? Should I just get my job to full time and wait the next year?
Will studying in uni get me a better paying job, or some sort of tangible improvement over just working right away?
I am very interested to hear your opinions, and sorry for the long post :)2
So I finally had a good idea.
I have programmed a proof of concept and now dont now what next.
I would like to make it open source and let people benefit from it. But at the same time I would like to make everybody using it to generate money pay a part to charity and a part to me.
How could I do this? Do I need a patent or a licence or what?
Is this even ok?
Anyone know what's the current situation with part-time jobs in the web development field? I want a job but I'm in college so full-time is a no-no. I've been trying to find something part-time (internships mostly) but I'm not a US citizen (some sites require that) and I'm looking for something remote, and that's been pretty hard to find. Any ideas where I can look for this stuff or if such jobs even exist?
The best I've managed to find are full-time internships, I tried applying to them seeing if I can work part-time instead but no one mailed back :(1
Something funny. Has anyone heard of a case or a city, where people looking for a part-time job are in bigger numbers than those who are looking for a full-time job?
The competition is stiff.
Disclaimer, am a student.
What do you guys and gals do or planing to do other than coding that makes you money?
Share your ideas.
I am learning to invest in stocks as a part time income stream.12
How much do you value alternative benefits to straight $$$?
Obviously subjective, but how much money would you part with for:
Guys how to i make a python spammer for this bad game the dev left?
i already know the spamming part which requires pyautogui and time but do i actually make the pyautogui open the tabs and typewrite? correct?
(not telling you how to code it just wanted to know the operation)
