After I submitted a code review:
Coworker: What did you mean with this comment?
Me: **translating the comment to Portuguese** Your Footer component isn't rendering any footer element.
Coworker: **blank stare** what?
Me: There is no footer tag here. **points to Footer component**
Coworker: **computing... found approximate result** I'm rendering the Footer here. **shows me where the Footer component is being rendered**
Me: **internal facepalm** Yes, I know, but I'm not talking about that. I'm saying that inside the Footer component you should be rendering a footer element.
Coworker: **segmentation fault** what?
And then I had to explain that there is an HTML footer element. To a mid level frontend developer (or so they say).
HTML is not only divs, for fuck sake.26
Right. So my company is advertising an opening in Java JUNIOR Development.... And they all of these skills:
I mean, really?14
I was about to use the Duolingo but I think it triggered me to hard. 2 mistakes in a row.
1. I have Portuguese origins and they used the Brazilian flag
2. I was born in Luxemburg and they just used our flag for The Netherlands (I know they're pretty similar but cmooooon)19
In image: "Downloading now, if it's good, I give it 2 more stars." And never came back.
Here in Brazil, it's not hard to find this kind of review in almost every single app, unfortunately.6
So, I'm a Portuguese dude. I have my OS's in English language and Portuguese keyboard. Today, I spent 30 min raging at my computer because I couldn't login. I tried like all my 865725428 passwords (fake number, in case u don't get it) and still couldn't access it. Then I fucking looked and remembered Windows is an asshole and changed my keyboard input to English, so all my symbols were changed. Fuck you Windows, Linux never did this to me. Y the fuck would u? Do u like to fucking make me waste my precious time? Go and fuck yourself with a 35'' CAT-5E cable you prick.11
Learning to program in 21 days is very easy. Just like moving the clock hands. On a sun clock. Across the road. In Portuguese.1
So, a few words about this setup :
- I am not Portuguese, my girlfriend got this poster while on a trip
- The second monitor is very old and uses fluorescent tubes. It's shitty and not stylish, but useful at times
- Yes, I use a standalone scanner. Every multifunction printer I've had ended up suiciding itself, and suicided the built in scanner with it. A standalone scanner should be indestructible.
- The case is open because I haven't paid much attention to fans and stuff, so it gets pretty hot when gaming
- Talk about gaming : I dual boot W10/Ubuntu but use the original Gnome DE with Adwaita Dark (I love it). However, W10 is only useful for Lightroom and games. When Steam released proton, I decided to start using Darktable for photo editing in order to ditch Windows once and for all. That will probably happen in the coming months.
- I have not wired my home yet, so I use a router as Wi-Fi receiver.
- The top of the desk is not the original one. It used to be a glass one, but I didn't like the feel and it was too small. So I made a wooden one and painted it with paint my father had left over. However, it ended up looking hideous and sticks to the skin when resting on it for a long time. It has to be changed/fixed.
- The headphones hanger is just a big ass screw, and the headphones jack has been fixed at least a dozen times. I even changed the cable two times.
- The mic is shitty but cost only 8€ on eBay.2
Hahahaha just typed "teste" (Portuguese for test) in duck duck go and it showed me a picture of testicles ( I guess...) With huge "Testicle" written above it in the middle of the office hahahaha
Hope no one saw that, it was funny.1
Can I be a fucker?
Here is the crazy guy on my fav childhood beach.
BT glasses now (today I want Portuguese hip hop) but usually camera glasses (suposed to be 1080p, pix are 640x480) , so other gadjet to unmount.
See that sea? Marvelous...5
I love Android development, but I HATE make individual strings for each word in my apps. It's so tedious! There's gotta be a better way than telling myself, "Oh crap you better be a good boy and use Google's 'best practices' and not hardcode all your strings. Who knows you might make this app translatable in Portuguese someday and it'll be easy then!". I HATE it!!2
Convert.ToDecimal("1.0") will yield 1.0 if your windows is in english and yield 10 if it's in portuguese.
I always dreamed to live in USA. Waking at the morning and see those huge buildings, eating pancakes while I cover myself from the cold. For a while I forgot this my old dream of travel from my Portuguese home to somewhere on Texas or California. Since I am in my last year of university, after being student worker and after 6years being graphic designer and 3 them as full stack developer, I trully believe in doing this...5
Its hidden skill time.
At work, as a method of concentration I write code while singing gangnam style or some other similar song.
Perfectly and with no discernable accent even though i am Mexican American.
I also do it with Stromae songs(because I love french, not as much his music)
This is something that I learned in Portuguese class at hs :V which eventually led me to be able to survive conversations with my friends from Brazil without getting lost.
Languages are cool, just wish I was able to properly speak more. I love languages, but just stick to English and Spanish since those are the only ones that I speak fluently.
Wife speaks french, and she has tried teaching me even though I really can't get the hang of it just yet. Instead she showed me how to read it.
German and Japanese are on the list as well.7
Got a question for you all.
I'M currently doing fullstack .NET for banks, but I want to continue my studies this year, so my idea is to take the classes at night and work remotely at day.
My supervisor told me that he doesn't know if it's possible and he says that he's going to talk to the director.
In the meantime, I started searching and I found a portuguese blockchain company. It's fullstack JS/TS, Node.js API's, which I know and like, and React or Angular. They asked me for a challenge project and are saying 50% remote, nice compensation, equity and tokens (I think the compensation would be bigger than my current or future position).
Would you take this?
I'M kinda scared about going to a complete new technology.
I'd like to work with .NET in the future...16
My wife and all of our friends are Brazilian. When they are all talking in a group in Portuguese, my mind wonders off and wishing I was back doing my coding.
So, got tired of trying to learn on top of the knee (Portuguese expression) and decided to do some courses to get the basics.
Where do you recommend I go?
1. Course must be free
2. Not over 100 hours per course (I'll have 1 to 2 hours a day if I really focus on it)
What I need:
Language (lvl of knowledge)
- Python (know the basics) + kivy (basics)
- node.js (0)
- Jquery ( 0 ) + Django (0)
I know there's lots of good courses out there and lots of dumb stupid ones, care to give your opinion? Thank you5
I feel like I need to change company... it's Monday, I'm 1 hour late to work and already wanting to go back home.
Any Portuguese company looking for a iOS dev? 😅😅2
in brazilian portuguese you don’t say friday you say “hoje é dia de maldade” and i think that’s beautiful4
The near future is in IOT and device programming...
In ten years most of us will have some kind of central control and more and more stuff connected to IOT, security will be even a bigger problem with all the Firmware bugs and 0-day exploits, and In 10 years IOT programmers will be like today's plumbers... You need one to make a custom build and you must pay an excessive hour salary.
My country is already getting Ready, I'm starting next month a 1-year course on automation and electronics programming paid by the government.
On the other hand, most users will use fewer computers and more tablets and phones, meaning jobs in the backend and device apps programming and less in general computer programs for the general public.
Programmers jobs will increase as general jobs decrease, as many jobs will be replaced by machines, but such machines still need to be programmed, meaning trading 10 low-level jobs for 1 or 2 programming jobs.
Unlike most job areas, self-tough and Bootcamp programmers will have a chance for a job, as experience and knowledge will be more important than a "canudo" (Portuguese expression for the paper you get at the end of a university course). And we will see an increase of Programmer jobs class, with lower paid jobs for less experienced and more well-paid jobs for engineers.
In 10 years the market will be flooded with programmers and computer engineers, as many countries are investing in computer classes in the first years of the kids, So most kids will know at least one programming language at the end of their school and more about computers than most people these days.
So I just started learning Swift, and I think it's modern, beautiful and a bit weird. Like the Portuguese of programming languages.
I think it should be used more.3
i installed windows on my pc to find out it is stuck in Portuguese, slowly learning it while being pissed off2
Whatsapp went down.. "Who cares" typical american person.. "Wtf just happened" - Brazilian, Portuguese, Indian and the list goes on.. #notRacistRant #americanSwag4
Dreaming in Code!
That was clearly enough for my brain to generate some imaginary lines and fill the gaps in a night of wild dreams.
I guess any code language works much like human languages with grammars, vocabularies and punctuations.
So dreaming in code isn't all that odd?!
I hope that's what my mind attempted last night. Not the most visually inspiring of dreams, but certainly vivid.
Has anyone else experienced something similar? Has anyone tried applying language learning tricks to learning coding?8
I don't know how things are outside Brazil, but I do wish I could pay for portuguese lessons for some of my clients, and also a bit of english too.
Reading their messages or e-mails just gives me head cramps, I tell ya.
I do make errors once in a while, but god damnit ALL their messages are trainwrecks!
Also, they want to use some jargons in english (because they think it sounds cooler, and I do agree that sometimes it's shorter and easier), but first they should put their efforts into a better use of portuguese language.
Really, I don't even know how some of them got past university, but they DID it, and it pains me to see that.
Though the pain isn't bigger than being told "hey, I don't understand much, but that's easy for you, right?" for whatever task they want me to do.
