EDIT: devRant April Fools joke (2020)
We've been at this a few years now, and over the last 6 months we've been working closely with a brand consulting agency, and after numerous developer interviews, surveys and focus groups, we've come to realize "devRant" is simply not capturing the cultural zeitgeist of this new decade. Therefore, we have a bold new brand that will be rolling out over the coming week. devDucks is our bold vision for the future, today. devDucks speaks to a new generation of software engineers who resonate with a more upbeat, optimistic tone when they go to an anonymous web community to swear and lament their current work situation. While we finalize the new logo and other key marketing collateral, we have started a staged roll-out of our new brand styling, including the conversion of all avatars to literal devDucks. We hope this brings more joy to your ranting, as it has to ours. Sincerely, David & Tim (@dfox & @trogus) - devDucks co-founders63
First day at new web dev job:
Me: what IDE do you guys use?
M: Okay... Any version control?
C: Oh we don't need it. We just update the server pages.
*Boss walks in*
Boss: Heres the project for you to do just need you to rebrand this web app we made for client A for client B just need to change some scripts. Should only take afew hours.
I take a look. No comments. Not formatted. Missing braces and brackets. Semicolons at odd places and missing at others. 7802 lines of code...18
So our internship company had this client who wanted to rebrand. We are a team of 5 students(Copy writer, Digital marketer, Graphic designer, UI/UX designer and Web Developer)
We made a list of changes we propose in the website (She happily approved)
We discussed the changes in the meeting (She happily approved!)
Finally, changes were made and and we asked her again if she wants us to publish the new website (She approved!!)
After publishing the changes, she emailed my team lead stating “She did not like the changes. She did not approve it and we should not have published it. Also, the rebranding is worst.”
FUCKER. LIAR. I HOPE HER BUSINESS FAILS.2
Ohhhhh fucking bullshit.
I have an old Canyon router and i decided to install dd-wrt on it since i have it on my main one so why the fuck not.
To my suprise that bullshit is just ASUS rebrand.
Ok that isnt that bad.
The worst is that they dont released the firmware files so i dont have any other choice then to install it via serial connection.
Ohhh tftp doesnt work until you have serial connection.
Why firmware file matters ?
Because when you want to flash factory-to-ddwrt image it fails because of header.
Well and you get header from factory firmware or memory dump via serial. But well i could just install wrt on it when i have serial.
So FUCK you Canyon i hope you get what you deserve.
If you had a clear skill gap and no free time in your current situation, would you take the risk of 6-8 months off to fix that skill gap with training, rebuild/rebrand, and then job hunt again?11
Am I the only one who got a fabulous butthurt about Visual Studio for Mac being just a rebrand of Xamarin Studio, and inherently, Mono Develop?1
Interesting how SEO agencies often feel the need to 'rebrand' when their domain is penalised by Google
