Getting married tomorrow!!!
I'm kind of scared actually. But in a good way 😄
And here I am, in the middle of the night, trying to figure out why my fucking tests don't run 😄58
How everyone uses stackoverflow:
1. Work on some project
2. Spot a bug
3. Try to solve the bug and fail.
4. Write a question for SO.
5. Post question on SO.
6. Get the answer and some points.
How I use stackoverflow:
1. Work on some project
2. Find a bug
3. Try to fix the bug and fail
4. Write a question on SO
5. Get scared that I might be downvoted.
6. Spend 45 minutes optimizing the structure of the question.
7. Try additional tests to cover all possible scenarios.
8. Still scared to click post.
9. Scrap everything and restart line by line writing further details of each step in your question.
10. Find the bug myself.
11. Click cancel on the question that took me 3+ hours to write.
YES YES YES YES I HAVE MY FIRST INTERVIEW NEXT WEEK (SERVER MANAGEMENT/SUPPORT POSITION)
*JUMPS AROUND* (NOT LITERALLY BECAUSE AT A TRAIN STATION)32
When I Made Passworts visible in Chrome and the teacher sent me home...
...It was Friday!
She sent me home because she was really fu**ing scared of what I did and even called my Parents9
Ranted about this internship before but just remembered this.
The employees and the boss were having a joke/laugh. I found it funny as well so I laughed along
A little later the boss pulled me outside (as well as my internship guide person): why where you laughing along? You had nothing to do with that conversation. It was none of your fucking business. Stay out of other people's business, understood?
I was scared, shaking and trying to keep my tears in.
That was not the best internship.17
Friend just called in.
They are laying off 50% of my team.
They are laying off from entire company and across locations.
And other companies in my country have also started laying off the masses.
Times are dark. Markets are risky.
I see another 2008 in near future. My prediction is almost correct about a down market cycle.
I am afraid because as a tester we are garbage to these companies.
I am shit scared.54
I've always hated Omegle, but my online friend forced me to do it, since she thinks it will help my social anxiety.
I had to send her screenshots as proof.
As much as I didn't want to, I had no choice. I was too scared to do the video chatting so I did the text chat instead. This is how the conversation went:
Me: Just programming, you?
Stranger: ur a programmer?
Me: Yes :)
*Stranger has disconnected.*104
A non reproducible bug is like an annoying ex boyfriend who lives across the street.
1. You know you can't fix things.
2.You're always scared you'd run into him again.10
My non-dev boyfriend installed Python via the command line and ran a server to render a map of Pokémon in his neighborhood. I don't know whether to be impressed or scared 😂7
Was scared to take up freelance work because i was scared of bad clients.
Finally took one today, client is not a total arse and knows exactly what she wants me to do, down to details.
Sister comes into my room
"Can you look at moms laptop, it stopped working I'm scared I broke it"
"Idk it just stopped working, all I did was install adobe flash player I dont think that could do it could it?"
Take a look
"EFI IPV4 0 (error code) failed to boot"
Weird. Enter bios
"Hard drive: [Not detected]"
Well, that's no bueno
Pop open back, hard drive is loose
Pfft, push that fucker back in
Boot -> works
"Mom is going to kill me I broke it im so worried" -> relieved laughter
Mainly a story with some ranting sprinkled on top :)
My grandma used to refuse to turn her PC off because ONE SINGLE WINDOWS 8.1 UPDATE like 2 years ago made it so that Windows would turn the PC on by itself, nevermind it was fixed in the next update, she would simply refuse to try to turn the PC off from that point on... I never looked at the uptime but the PC was sitting on a carpet and all the fans were struggling to keep spinning, so much dust! When I asked her why it's so dusty all around the PC (the table that the PC was under was covered in a really thick layer of dust) she replied that the chambermaid comes every Wednesday to clean up the whole flat so she has no idea. I set up a camera that was recording the whole room so I could see what was going on... sure enough the chambermaid avoided anything that looked like it could have some ICs in it with a distance of at least 2 meters... When I showed the video to my grandma she was like: Yes, she is scared of electronics...
Seriously fuck me... Allright, I cleaned the whole table, carpet and the inside of PC, everything ran so quietly that I wasn't sure if I plugged the fans in.
Anyway after this I had to record the PC one whole night so I could prove to my grandma that it would not turn on by itself and she can in fact turn it off.
Fuck me... what a bad week that was...
PS: Yes, my stories do not have a point :)8
This one colleague at my work.
I'm pretty new to a lot stuff and I stress out about some stuff a lot more than the other guys, mostly because I'm scared I might not be able to fix it.
But whenever that happens, I explain this guy what's going on and then, while making jokes, talking in a very calming way, he always knows to fix it in no time!
For everyone who does this, thanks for being there for the little/new guys :)1
When you escape outside from everybody, and the nature gives you its best debugging buddy!
Sorry for the quality, it was dark and that's the best I could do with it.
It scared the shit out of me at first :D6
A method that contains over 9000 lines of code.....
Are there really production codebases out there with stuff like that? If yes I am scared as hell because I don't want to work with that kind of code once I graduate
Tell your stories!19
Got invited to a "roundtable", where we will discuss email security and the future and direction of where it is going.
Only 10 people in Sweden got a chair
I feel exclusive but also scared that they will find out what a noob I am lol5
What If our Boss's read our Rants...
OH GOD NO!
What If they write there OWN rants about us?
Now im scared9
Apparently, because I know how computer works and how to program
I also had to know how to:
- become rich
- hack into banks
- solve all world problems
- make a better windows/facebook/apple/google
- repair a burned down PC
Sometimes I think they are scared that I'm able to zap them with a lightning strike as if would be a motherfucking wizard.
Still love my family though ;)3
Ever been scared to open your laptop in public because you can't remember if you closed the porn you were watching the prior night?22
Recently we changed to another provider and now we have much faster internet speed than before. But my father was scared that it was too fast and movies streamed over Netflix would now run in timelapse.2
First ever job interview (in my field) went well and I got the job two days later! (my current one).
I'm getting scared from the other stories though 😅3
Me: Team's gonna watch IT. Wanna come?
Friend from other team: Yeah, sure!
Friend: WTF! Why is this I.T? This is scary as fuck!
Me: I-T? It's "it". HAHAHAHA It's a remake of the It 1990 movie.
Friend: I don't know anything about that. I'm scared as hell! I thought this would be some tech stuff and crying in the server room or something!7
I'm redoing my setup right now and getting genuinely scared that when I turn on my server, the power will go down.
I'm using so many devices at the same time 😅15
Holy donkey nuts, I get too scared to leaved unpushed code when I take a coffee break.
Working at a school for a couple weeks and I've never been so scared to touch anything in my life...14
Client so scared someone steal their code (even though we’re the one who make it), they block some access to internet website, also block nuget site12
Just scared the shit out of my little brother with a bluetooth keyboard. Now he'll never ask for my phone again.12
Long ago, like 5 years, I made an app for my EX GF in symbion to track her periods. Application predict the next date when your period will come based on her cycle.
How ever after 2 month of usage she told me that application was flashing that she is pregnant. She scared shit out of herself and made me sacred a hell as well.
Later i find out that the variable i used to store number of days between last period and current date was not capable of storing value more than 40, i don't know how, and triggers negative value to be shown.
Early days of my programming, Shit happens.10
My work is soo time consuming that I am scared of entering into a relationship. But I think I genuinely like her. :/12
Scariest Web Page i Made:
So i was outside the hotel where my friend works, as he went away to submit work related papers and i sat in the car.
The car was parked in the middle of two others. To pass time i started working on my Web Page..
To me it was just a simple html,css,js source code..(wasn't even client side)...
To the other non-programmer hotel staff (Prying) eyes it was:
A shady guy, dressed in black in a car parked outside the server room. To top that off i had Dark theme on my editor.
So now two staff members are staring at me from outside the car...
I was well aware of what message this whole setup might be sending.
So i got a little anxious and did one thing that i should not have done i.e started looking at them with coy eyes as i typed.
Next minute i was being asked to step outside the car.
I was scared,not by the situation ... i was scared of their ignorance and how would i explain what those many colored lines on a black screen meant.
However it was solved..... but i knew this was the scariest page i ever made.6
It's raining. I love it.
It's foggy. I love it.
But I live in a desert and nobody here seems to know how to handle the rain, let alone the fog. (It isn't hard, people!) Last night during my ~30 min drive home from work, five separate accidents/collisions happened just a little ways behind me because it was raining. Now it's foggy, too.
I have to go to work.
My first AI program in the 1985 on Apple IIe (64kb ram computer) was answering simple questions with yes and no. Everyone were shocked with precision of about 100% when I was typing and 70-80% when others were typing. My parents were scared and skeptical. How it works? Store the time between the first key pressure and the following, when it is larger than 1 second the answer is yes, otherwise no. They say the question, you know the answer and type accordingly. When they want to write the question themselves, you try to force their typing speed if possible. I was 12 years old and it was very funny.3
Just read that EU may planning regulating Algorithms...
What the fuck? WHAT THE FUCK?
They want that programmers make their Algorithms public accessible for transparency and say what algorithms are allowed to do, because people are scared of them?!
MY BRAIN HURTS AFTER THAT FUCKING GENERAL DATA PROTECTION BULLSHIT THEY WANT TO REGULATE HOW OUR PROGRAMS SHOULD WORK?!

***JUST BECAUSE SECURITY***
My father deleted the email with the credential for our ISP (pppoe: username and password), and I need it to connect a router.
Just called the tecnical service, after a couple of minutes they gave it to me.
They sent to me both username and password.
Asking me where to send (which mail).
I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW HOW IS CALLED THE CREDENTIAL I NEED.
Obviously, I just had to say the accountholder of the bill.
Now I am super scared, i can virtually access any account.8
First time I was scared and decided not to use a ATM machine, since that piece of shit Windows device notified me about some new USB hardware detected :)8
I think I once saw Richard Stallman in a subway in New York, but I'm still not sure if it really was him or just another hobo.
I wanted to go up to him and ask, but was too scared that I might offend him if it _was_ him or get attacked by a hobo if not.5
Me: *running my first Java program*
Java: Error: illegal character
Me: *scared* Am I going to Java jail or what?4
Lesson of the day:
If you're really into a YT video on your laptop while eating noodles and your phone is on vibrate and you know you get scared very easily, keep the bowl away from it. I repeat: keep it away from it.4
Never been to an interview before but it's almost time for me to start searching for a job, and I'm fucking scared lol9
We have this Lukas Podolski paper display someone swiped at a soccer club store. So we hide the fucker in offices, bathroom stalls or behind doors and people get scared shitless.5
So, sometime ago, Elon musk proposed a website that ranks news sources.
How about a website where we rate recruiters and black list those inhuman ones like the guy who sent an email saying you're legally not allowed to work for anyone else and 750 month pay for 40 hours a week.
A public spam filter, like ads or spam emails, but from disrespectful recruiters
That way recruiters feel more scared and improve their behaviors against programmers from all levels and everyone can have better experience during job search.
(I mean I'm sure these recruiters got some blacklist of their own, right?)3
Had to go outside to check my balance, but it's thundering right now.. I know that there's street lights everywhere that are a far better conductor than I am. But 1MV at 100kA is most certainly a force to be reckoned with. I made it one way, let's see if I can make it back as a living human. But I feel like I'm teasing nature...
I'm scared.. 😰8
The company got a new office just in time for the "company summit".
I checked out the address on Google maps. It's a cinderblock building with the number spraypainted on the side, a battered cyclone fence in front, a cyclone gate off to the right side (apparently falling off) leading to a random battered shed, and immediately on the left is a dental office with bars on the windows. Also, the fence has spikes on top.
On Friday, in the midst of the craziest disaster cleanup possible for a project, I tell my boss my laptop keeps freezing and is probably going to crash. Saturday 8:30 FedEx rolls up with a new laptop. I'm even more scared now!4
A continuation to @n3xus's post.
My only Chinese reseller / eBay experience is getting these two arduinos for about $3.50 CAD . Worth it. And only slightly scared of them catching on fire.10
So my hard drive as making a weird, cracky, crunchy, popping noise and I was super scared. DONT QUIT ON ME NOW.
And then I was super relieved to find out it was in fact my stomach.
Another few seconds go by and I realize I was just HAPPY to find out my laptop was fine, and it was ME that was unhealthy.2
I have 6 months before I get out of the military, and make my path to being a developer! Scary and exciting feeling!20
Well I'm on the way to an interview for an IT Management internship at Logitech, wish me luck I'm so fucking scared.
Any tips will be nice because I'm so fucking afraid I will fuck it up20
I teach kids (7-12 years) to programming. Yesterday my colleague had the last class for this semester, where parents joined their kids to see what they done. They were presenting their projects, and a guy whose father is really strict with him, saw what variable names his son was using. Some of it (censored) are: "d*ck", "p*ssy", "f*ck". The guy is really scared of his father, because he's agressive with him all the time. I don't want to know what was his punishment for this.5
Just found out out what people google about programmers...
the last one made my day. I think it was this feeling called "funny" haha4
I heard my phone go 'buzz buzz buzzbuzz buzz buzz buzz buzzbuzzbuzzbuzzbuzz b-b-b-buzz buzz' earlier.
It was funny because it scared the shit out of my cat.8
I'm not scared of a computer passing the Turing Test. I'm terrified of one that intentionally fails it.
Okay, just wrote a program with memory allocation inside an accidental infinite loop and by the time I was able to kill it, it had already claimed 86% of my memory. Scared the shit out of me because my OS was CRAWLING for a while3
OMG it’s 4 am, and I think I made a stupid fucking mistake and waste everybody’s time. Need to check right now
Ah nah, we’re good. I am not a moron
We are debugging Wordpress syndication plugin tomorrow at work, the intern is uber scared because the lead dev is missing. Rest in peace my soul.(I'm the intern)4
Just got my first job as a software Developer (java). Soo freaking scared that I can't live up to the challenge. Has anyone ever felt this way on their first coding job?17
My cousin's husband who's an engineer at Google asked me if the whole screen on my phone was a fingerprint scanner.
I just looked scared at him and said, "when are you from?! We don't have that kind of technology yet"5
When i successfully install Arch on my system.
Translation : sometimes i think i am god
Trending in India now.10
I am really scared of entering into the office. Yesterday I ranted a lot about a bug and today it turned out it was my mistake. Seems it will be better if I will go in wearing a mask.3
Let me start off with this: I'm working on my privacy. Why just now? Because government.
I've always been aware on what I Post online. I don't use social media (except for the business and devrant), and I always use adblockers and related tools like ghostery and privacy badger.
I'm taking it a step further now. I've switched from Google to duckduckgo as my default search engine. I bought a VPN service and let it switch every 30 minutes from location. I use it on mobile, my NAS, and on all my computers. I turned off location services on my mobile and I encrypt all my peer to peer traffic. I started changing all my passwords and save them in a password manager (well I did this already for all my important stuff, but now I'm also working on all my other older accounts). I encrypted all my external and internal drives. I use two factor authentication where ever I can. Why did I do this? Government.
I'm really scared as hell at the new laws my country is going to accept. I'm scared of operations that follow me because I could do something they don't like. I'm scared because they know what I'm doing.
Fuck them. I'm gonna do everything I can to leave as little information on the website as possible. The internet is going to be fucked up.29
Someone I know recommended me to Google... Not sure if I'm excited or scared if they call.
Not getting my hopes up though. 👀9
Scared the shit out of g/f by using festival on Linux.
SSH'd into computer in bedroom from bathroom, announcing
"I am Lucifer. I'm coming for you, Jenny!"
Followed by a shutdown of PC. She shit herself banging on the bathroom door.
About to be jobless in less than a month because I'm resigning to take a bet on my dreams and skills. Deep down I'm little bit scared as each day goes by.
Looking forward to it.7
During resignation discussion with delivery manager at my previous organisation, he told me that I should join a start up. (I was planning to do that, and he knew somehow.)
He warned me in weird concerning way that if I join a start up, I will always be in stress. I will have high BP. And sperm count will reduce. I might never be able to produce child. And similar scary stuff.
Weird bald dude scared me for second there.
PS - I did join the start up and my BP is fine and so is my sperm count.6
Bootable USB with Linux is ready, files are almost finished backing up, and now I'm too scared to fuck up my machine to really continue installing a new os. But Windows has to go.20
I really want to make my own anonymous blog, but I am scared that someone will expose me after I write there something recognisable. 😒20
Random thought of the day: I'm afraid of posting any picture of my screen/setup where you could read my code because I'm scared that people would zoom in and discover how incompetent I am. Does this make any sense?6
Welp. The startup I'm working for is going under. Ceo gave us zero hints.
I'm the lead dev and been working here for 6 months. Always built features before deadline, zero bugs, and going an extra mile. Can't say the same about the sales and marketing guys.
Kinda scared its gonna look bad. Oh you led a failed startup? Must be your fault.
Guess my side business is becoming full time now. Until new job.
#startup #9/10 #icebergahead2
I'm so scared of the people on stackoverflow that my method for debugging a problem is to write up a question by which time I'm shocked into finding a solution. I'm just too scared of being ridiculed by some narcissistic dev (who obviously never makes any mistakes, ever) or, heaven forbid, having my question down voted and closed.5
I got a job, and I am super happy about it. But more than that I am terrified about all the responsibilities that come with it 😱9
That feeling when you finish work on Friday having built something really cool, but don't want to stop working on it.
Partly because you were enjoying it, partly because you were in the zone, and partly because you're scared that you are going to forget how it works by Monday!
I hate it when the inspiration finally comes... and you can't use the PC to compose. Because you're currently at school, or for whatever reason.
Now I'm scared that I will forget my ideas, before I get back home...
Damn, happens everytime.
A fairly simple and basic single page-ish project with no framework at all.
No backend or database.
Plain old Gulp task, npm scripts and Webpack.
Some parallax and other scrolling effects.
Client is actually a pretty simple, cool and understanding guy.
This is too easy.
What is this madness??4
Not a rant. Just a story.
So two weeks ago, a cat gave birth to two beautiful kittens in our balcony. We started giving milk to the mother and sometimes inviting the family to our house. The kittens are naughty charming. The mother sits for hours and sometimes sleeps while watching us do our chores (watching movies, coding, etc.)
Now, we live in New Delhi and Wednesday was Diwali. The family was playing in the balcony and we had to go out. So we locked the balcony door and went to have fun with friends. We didn't realize that people would burst firecrackers which could scare the cats. When we returned, the mother was very scared and (kind of) screaming. One of the kittens was missing!! We live on the fourth floor and I got scared too. We searched using a flashlight but there was no sign of kitten. After 30 minutes of search, We gave up. I assumed the kitten jumped from the balcony and might be dead. I tried to sleep but could not. Around 4 AM in the morning, I heard some noise. When I opened the door, the second kitten was there. Her mom was scolding (or so it seemed). It was a moment of joy.
Thought of sharing. This family has become our friends. Now I realize how cats are good companions.3
Last night I was exploring the feasibility of cracking the WPA2 key of my own router at home. I set out on a late night adventure, set up a couple devices and, knowing the default password convention of the manufacturer, setup a Hashcat instance with the relevant masks on my laptop, created a Crunch wordlist and ran aircrack on my Raspberry Pi 3, and thought "Hey - maybe there's something for Android too."
Hashcat on Android is a cat based social media app. I'm a little scared.4
An hour before my Mathematical Expression and Reasoning for Computer Science final...
Have reviewed all the material available but past exams are useless because new_prof == new_format.
This is not even a rant, I'm just scared because to get into the major I need an average between this and programming of 82. I fucked up in the second midterm and got a 50/100. Everything was so perfect (at least above 80) and now I need more than 70 in this final. I'm feel I can get more than 70 but I had the same feeling during the midterm I fucked up.25
3 weeks off work - complete.
1st day back - in progress
Shit storm flurry awaiting my arrival - bring it on!1
Joined a company as a junior developer and have been working there for almost 4 years.
Too scared to leave because I don't know if I'm good enough to apply for a non junior role :(
Is this the so called "imposter syndrome?"12
I'm the only frontend dev for a website with over 30M UU a week. It's constantly evolving. I'm scared that even when I have an accident and end up in coma, they'll still hook me to a laptop to code.7
F**king kaspersky found "malware" in development tools. Got scared clicked "disinfect"... F**king all days work "disinfected" from my project6
Saved this little one today (with some help)
We found it alone and seemingly scared/confused
It was shivering and it was very weak without its mother...
And its two siblings didn't survive :(
It's under care of some friends right now and they are going to take it to a care center tomorrow :)
Deep inside, no matter how many times I overcome my fears, I'm still "scared" of rejection.
It's an irrational fear, and I hate it.5
YouTube won't stop trying to shove this voter registration shit down my throat.
It's almost like they're scared of the election results or something lmfao11
Anyone else experienced that the not responding apps come back to life when you're about to open Task Manager or you've opened it already? I suspect they get scared of their god.2
How do you prevent your (paid) programs from being downloaded for free?
I really want to earn money from softwares but I'm so scared... (I'm 16 only)21
Yesterday, no packages update for 14 days. Things get eerily quiet. Today....

Sometimes I get scared that one of my posts is gonna get so many downvotes that it'll remove my previous +1000 that I have.7
I was reading a discussion between recruiters in LinkedIn, they were talking about wether or not it was a good idea to contact a candidate on Facebook when he/she is not responding emails or LinkedIn messages. Most of them agreed it's OK to Facebook stalk a person if that's what it takes to reach the candidate. I don't know what to think: maybe they're really serious about their job and I should admire them, or perhaps being a passive-agressive stalker is part of the recruiter's psychological profile and I should be scared.2
Slack is scared as hell about Microsoft Teams that is targeted to enterprise customers.
Did you hear about the full page newspapar ad they did?... Passive aggressive move by slack5
The dev usually sitting next to me is on vacation. Our senior dev is on vacation. Team analist, on a plane to a Greek beach as we speak. Both architects the company employs, gone for another two weeks or so. Lead analist, you guessed it, on vacation.
I'm enjoying the peace & quite for now but god forbid I run into any problems these next coming weeks.5
to all of you out there scared to get into a Dev position because of no formal education:
I don't have any finished formal education, just a bunch of experience from pet projects and free lance here and there. I applied for a position this morning, got an email before the afternoon with an invitation for an interview!
companies are looking for brains, not pieces of paper. just take the jump and try!5
My parents think I'm teaching computers to think strategic to rule the world some day. They are a bit scared. They love me though. But they are scared.
Also my mum once told me that I should take care not to end in hell. She was serious about it.1
Early in my career I saw a specific lead developer being a jerk. I saw it as confidence then. Looking back I realize they were scared and were trying to cover up the fact that they didn’t know what they were doing. Time really does give clarity sometimes.1
Alright, I know people joke about this but I just spent 4 hours debugging a 50 line chunk of code, and the first time it worked without errors it scared me🙃3
Starting at a new job in another city tomorrow. Both scared and excited. Just hope I can get some sleep!3
This is the story connected to this rant:
Thanks everybody for the concern! I want to inform you that I'm doing alright again. I went to a not too big event not far from home.
After a few beers and one stronger drink me and my friend had a good time. Everything that happened after, I can't remember it.
My friend told me we were walking to our bikes (he wouldn't let me go home, he noticed something was wrong) and right before we arrived I fell to the ground. After a while my friend helped me up but as I stood again I fell immediately, my head hit the ground hard.
I puked a lot and after almost an hour the police was there, who called an ambulance (last night I got a flashback in my dreams and vaguely saw one of the two ambulance drivers.
They inspected me but surprisingly they didn't take me to the hospital. My friends' mom also arrived and together they pulled me in to her car.
After that they brought me home and of course my parents were shocked as hell. They pulled me out of the car and put me down on the couch. It was about 4 am at this moment.
I first woke up at 7 am but immediately fell asleep again (I can't remember me doing this but my father said I did this, he stayed awake the rest of the night). An hour later, 8 am, I finally woke up. A lot went through my head because I could't remember how I came home.
Without many words I went to bed and later we talked about everything that happened.6
Halloween lovers, get the fuck off this rant, you ain't gonna like it.
MY FUCKING BALLS IN CONCRETE I SWEAR ILL DECIMATE THE NEXT FUCKER WHO COMES TO MY HOUSE FOR FUCKEN TREATS
Story time bitches:
So, I live up a hill (altitude difference of about 300 meters), that I have to bike up every day to get home. Tonight, on the way up, I was thinking "yeah no one will bother coming that high for trick or treating." Boy was I wrong. The only thing I want when I get up that hill is a big glass of water and my chair.
I arrived in front of my house and THERE THEY WERE.
fIfTeEn fUcKiNg cHiLdReN
I left my bike on the floor, far enough from them and hopefully made it to the door. Man, those things jump around and make so much noise. Shouting and begging for candies. I was like "Are your parents so awful they don't give you candy that you have to come all the way up here to annoy the fuck out of me??"
But you know, I'm a nice guy, so I went to the kitchen to get some old madeleines that no one would have eaten anyways so they would leave me the fuck alone.
Now I'm hiding in my room, all lights out, scared that more might come:12
Scared the shit out of me when I heard one of my volunteer side projects website was down. Because I just finished fixing my own hacked website today.
Turn out the server and website is fine but the domain was expired yesterday 😣
Don't fucking scare at me like that.
Tough week indeed.2
I think someone just did a MITM attack on my private server. Got the IP from netstat, and it's from somewhere, somewhere china. And I think he got my cred.
What do I do now?21
This dude from the advertising agency I'm currently having a little job wants to convince me to go study media informatics/cs instead of going into the game scene.
I'm scared of my future, is that fine?7
Now my facebook messenger app does it's updates inside the app without my consent to install an apk.
Today I was working on an issue related to adding icons to external links. I'm no CSS ninja, I never claimed to be. Somehow I wrote some really nice CSS that works well cross-browser. Now I'm scared they're gonna think I'm good at CSS.1
I remember when I first started programming and used to be scared of classes. I was thinking about it after I wrote several today like it was nothing.4
I am scared.
Google detected unusual traffic from my home network?
When I search anything in incognito mode, this page appears.
No incognito mode -> Google search works.
Feels like an attempt to force me to use my google account.16
Manager: how long does it take to add this functionality?
Me: 🤔, give me 6 days.
Man: perfect, you'll have 4 days
Me: why ask me then?
Man: so you feel included in the decision 🙂
Me: ..... Right... And ignored....
And now he wonders why, since then, I overestimate the times... And I wonder why he didn't fire me, my friends get scared everytime I talk to our manager 😛, actually, they forbid me from talking in meetings 😛.
When your family and friends hink that you just sit at home and play video games all day but you are learning how to code and you dont want to tell them because you are scared that they will make fun of you ,or they would think that you are some kind of pro and then would be disapointed when they would find out that you are just a beginner or that they would think that you
are just showing off.5
My previous boss has bad habit of relieving employees. He find out his links in a employee
s new company and then god knows what he did with that.
For, that reason I did not mention my current company when I switch but today I tried to find out those people who left before me it was shocking that no one updated their current company.
Creepiness of the former boss was real. Everyone was scared.
Been in a creative company for more than a year working as front-end, mostly CSS3 Animations and jQuery.
Today got a Job Offer in a startup about building an ERP for Albanian Market, mostly in Laravel and Vue.js
I was so excited for the first 30 minutes and then I remembered that I don't know so much Laravel and Vue, also I must work with an other guy which has lesser experience than me.
Totally scared about this new exp but ready to go for it :D
Any suggestions is really appreciated!!!!!2
Happened on Wednesday,
The interview was more like this
0.) Everyone introduced themselves, first the 2 who interviewed me and then me
1.) They tell me What the company is about
2.) And What do they offer for their employees ( Including a free home internet )
3.) What kind of job would you like to do?
4.) Last few minutes: tell us why we should hire you ( how would you sell yourself to us)
After they listed all employee benefits, I had to avoid showing my burning willingness to do anything to work there because that would have scared them2
I am scared... I'm scared because the code works.. but it shouldn't work I mean it's not supposed to get triggered and I have no idea what triggers it. It feels like my program got cursed and started doing things on it's own. I even put up blocks to stop the function from triggering but it still works... It always works.. I am scared...8
The moment when you are too scared to make any needed changes in your code fearing you will untumble all the structured mess of spaghetti code you have written... 😳😨😕5
So one day I sat in our break hall at school plonking away in my ssh terminal when suddenly someone walks behind me and screams HACKEERRR! When he sees that i start turning around he started sprinting away from me and for 2 weeks he would be extremely scared of me. Thant was probably the weirdest day in my life.1
This is true incident.
I fried the motherboard of my new Windows 10 Home ASUS UX303UA laptop having 8 fucking gigs of RAM and 1TB HDD with dedicated Nvidia Graphics Card and video memory by just trying to repeat what I love to do which is :
Install and play Crysis on EA Origin paid channel
Install and program on Linux VM using Virtualbox
Listen to music
I am so fucking scared now that I am not going to repeat it again.
I fuck the fear of using such machines.21
IT student of last year here. I use all this bloody expensive software like R# ultimate, VS Proffesional, VMware, InteliJ even my Windows 10 and free services like Pluralsight, SendGrid, GitHub or DigitalOcean in special student plans(like unlimited private repos on GitHub) without paying a single cent. Scared now what will I do when I will need to buy ide plugin for 200$...9
Just came out of an internship interview with the CEO of the company, who's a computer graduate apart from being an MBA guy.
Few things bother me as to whether to join them or not?
1. He's scared of GIT.
-He's asked me not to use git because that will make the code public.
2. He's asked me not to use bootstrap.
-He's afraid it'll be a copyright violation.
3. Asked me to develop ERP/CRM for the company.
- I'll be the sole developer on the thing, developing a whole CRM with Project Management System. And the internship is "almost" unpaid. Almost because, they are willing to pay an amount equal to what I spend on my monthly caffeine drinks.
I'm in a rut whether to join this company or not, as this is don't see any learning here (being the sole developer). I'll be doing what I've been doing for years (develope a Web app) but for a fraction of what I get from freelancing.
But, I'd love a internship certificate to show at the campus placements later this year.
I'm scared like a kid!
Next week , I'm getting my new medicine as a serum which is full of side effects : fever , headache , ...
And because bradicardia is one of them (several people died cause of this !) , I must be in the hospital under observation for 24h (actually 24h coding ) .
Hey i know it's stupid !
I know even if my heart stops beating i won't die in hospital (i hope so)
And i'm not a nervous guy!
I'm getting back to my code maybe that helps 😸6
I'm just starting on the dev world. I only taken Java and C++.(Both professors knew their coding however, sucked balls at teaching it). now i am here looking at this post scared as shit for my future.. damn what did i get myself into?9
I'm working on this super fun project in which we can combine the newest technologies, and some not so new but fun to use, we are doing it with docker, ASP.Net core, Angular2, and suddenly the system maintenance guy from the client sends us an email like:
- Just wondering which content management system are you going to use currently we are using WordPress, Orange and Django which ease a lot adding new features and sections
So the PM and me are frustrated and scared that we are going to be forced to use something awful just to please this guy.5
I love technology. I love programming and developing software. I love self-learning new things.
But I REALLY REALLY REALLY hate Math. And suck at it too.
I want to study comp-sci at the university but I'm scared of the math.
For fucks sake
Will I really have to become the fucking PM around here so shit start being done properly?
We look like bunch of scared cockroaches doing random shit everyday and lying to our selves that we are gonna meet deadlines and produce quality software but the only shit we can produce is quality bug.1
I've always been kinda lazy about backups and such, thinking it wouldn't be so bad, and "I have my most important stuff on Dropbox".
Just now, for some reason one of my hard drives just stopped for a bit, and I couldn't do anything with it anymore. Luckily it went away after restarting my pc, but it scared the shit out of me, as I almost lost 500 gigs worth of music, films, documents, etc...
This made me really think about the whole backup thing, and I'm creating a disk image as I type this. The time that I spend on that will be much less then the time it'll cost to recover everything. Lesson learned ^^'3
So this morning my mum wakes me up at about 7am and she goes "Ollie I'm really scared I think someone has hacked into my phone" so I say " oh shit what happened" then she says "there's a man sending me horrible text messages and threatening me" then I say "wtf let me have a look" so I looked at the phone and it was one of those text message story's on Facebook so this whole time she was just watching a video in full screen while unaware that she was watching a video ffs literally anyone over the age of 40 is a danger to technology looool.4
I start my first ever job as a junior developer in about 3 hours...I'm nervous, excited, scared, terrified, petrified all at the same time.
Junior front end..Any tips?13
They just announced Ubuntu 18.04, that will be called "bionic beaver" (i wish i could adopt one of these)
But what scared me the most is that for this website, the #1 feature worth being announced is that the OS will fully support color emojis.
Can't wait for Ubuntu 18.10, Cancerous Crap.
Today I got kicked out of college. On one hand I'm happy that I have more time to work on my company but on the other hand I'm scared I may have fucked myself for my future.
They said I have the possibility to return after 1 year. Anyone have advice for what I can do over the next year?9
I feel like an imposter. I am running an IOT startup alone and it's in development phase.
Product and the app ecosystem is working so well that it's scaring me. Other products are quite finicky. I haven't worked long enough. I imagined it would take an year to develop. My code is quite simple. I just don't know why it's working so well compared to the works of others. I am scared I missing something huge.
I am in depression because work is going smoother than my expectations.10
For a long time, I wanted to be a part of open source communities. I've been a dev for 6 years now.
I have the skills needed to help out but usually I'm fairly unexperienced on working with big teams, code reviews, and build-test systems they often use. So I'm scared as hell to even begin with. I feel unsecure to reach out and ask for helping or send a basic fix / pull-request.
What are your suggestions, how did you start working on open source projects?
Teach me senpai.3
Fuck, I did not know it was possible to wait this long for something to boot up. Too scared to even install Visual Studio.
Downgrading from my own i7 pc with 16GB ram and an ssd to a company i3 budget laptop with 4GB ram and 5400rpm HDD.
Could never understand all this bitching about Windows 10 and how it is shit slow, but I have come to realize what everybody has been complaining about.6
Interviewing for an internship with Microsoft In a couple weeks. Sh****** my pants every day or so, been reading Cracking the Code Interview but still scared... Any recommendations?9
Way back, 20 or so years ago, when I went to the university, every student got an account so that we could work with the Unix machines. Every user got the same default password, -apollo-, still remember it until today, and one day I felt a little bit evil and I tried to login to the administrator account, of course the first password I tried was the default password and it worked!!! I got super scared and told an older student about it, who was brave enough to scare the administrators a little bit by leaving a message like "you have been hacked!!!" or something similar. I was just too scared to do anything about it. All I wanted to do was see IF I could login ☺️ my few minutes of being Mr. Robot... Guess hacking was not for me 😃
One of my favorite things to do in Secondary School was to go around telling people I had written a program that uses the 'Doomsday Algorithm' which sounded really cool and always scared those who didn't understand it.
Truth is, the 'Doomsday Algorithm' is just an Algorithm that used to determine the Day of the Week of a given date.
I wrote this when I was 13/14 years old and I'm still super proud of it today.... well I mean I probably would be if I could read my own code.1
My parents think everything i do on the computer is magic. Theyre too scared to toich any of my stuff because I convinced them it records live video and biometrics to my phone.
Sometimes life is good
Starting my first real dev position Monday. Scared about using a windows computer for dev for the first time but stoked.
My rant is against myself that I didn't switch jobs earlier.6
That weird scared-like face people are having when they see me with laptop and lan cable... :/ *Meanwhile everyone on Wi-FI*3
This webpage has been giving me here somewhere and got me astounded...
Please visit, place your e-mail address and get scared.
Making a plan to change all my passwords now24
I drank too much last night. I was scared shitless since I really can't deal with hungovers and I am not supposed to drink a lot because of my stomach condition.
Mind you, for me, 8 beers is a lot(drank them in about 2 hours) and went to sleep. I was not all fucked up or anything, i was very lucid and scared of what i was going to deal with.
As i was trying to relax, my psychosis kicked in and I can swear that a little voice told me to calm down, i have been working out like if I was about to fight McGregor and my metabolism is through the roof(which is sometimes alarming) and that I will be good by morning.
Woke up at 11 feeling like a million bucks.4
I am pretty new to devrant.. and Tomorrow is my first official joining in a MNC as Android Dev... I have done many work in start-ups as intern..But feeling scared for tommorow... Hope for the best.. 😕2
Hey ho, some dev from Rakuten Tokyo here? Could do an application for it. Want to know if there are cool developers 🙃
But need to move from Germany to Japan and I'm a bit scared 🙁
I wished a while ago to life and work in Japan. Currently I have no real roots / bindings in Germany. Except some friends.
Should I try it or not? 😣4
WORST UBUNTU RELEASE TO DATE!
Why oh why did they go with /swapfile by default? I was legacy booting with UEFI enabled and it still didn't work! And don't get me started on nouveau (Nvidia OSS).
When I click "use proprietary software" I want the OS to do everything in its power to just work. Disable 3D acceleration if you must - at least boot to a console.
I'm scared to try it on my main desktop now!
I switched to Linux Mint and I'm happy now, I just needed an instant OS that works. 😊9
OMG. I was near a football field ant there were like hundred of ravens.
Floydian was i in heaven ???????
I would take a pic but well there were people near the football field and yelled at me for wanting to take a pic. Those idiots scared of those ravens. Well i yelled at them very much then.9
Each time I login at GitHub and take
a look at featured repos, also when I realize the huge server destroyer bug it's just a misplaced line.
Sometimes I look at some repos and I'm scared to contribute...never contributed once.1
Are there any other developers out there that start getting scared when a project actually starts gaining traction? No? Just me?2
university information day!
Little bit scared to be honest. I'm surrounded by pupils which have no idea of IT whatsoever.
I don't want to start from scratch for the third time. (They started at absolutly zero about IT at school, 'college' and now uni)
Finishing my interaction design study. I'm scared, because the headmasters change their mind, everytime i adjust my potential thesis theme for them. 😕
I was scared shitless while installing the windows creator, that it might shit on my grub like the anniversary update did! I had to chroot, reinstall bootloader, and run mkinitcpio to rebuild boot and kernel images. But thankfully everything went on smoothly this time!11
I hate when Apple news websites do articles on Android. 99% of the time it's pure bullshit coming from someone whose last experience with Android was Gingerbread, if any. 9to5mac is a really bad offender, but so feel TheVerge is extra shitty with Android articles. For someone who claims to do news on everything impartially, they warp their sights towards Apple way too much.
That obviously means that costumers will get scared of leaving Apple for what might be a better experience for their use case. I just absolutely hate this kind of partial journalism.
TL;DR fuck 9to5mac and The Verge for scaring people off using Android with misinformation10
I was talking about the mobile game The Room around another student yesterday and mentioned how it's like a escape room type of game.
Today I got 3 different types of escape room commercials on Instagram/Facebook. Never gotten anything close to this regarding ads.
I've never felt so afraid, or spied on.6
So i wanted to install lineageOS on my smartphone for quite some time but i never wanted to do it cause i was kind of scared that i would brick my device (it is a new smartphone so...). Now i finally did it - and forgot to make a fucking backup of my contacts -_-.
Still i am happy that i did it.7
Got selected for an internship and I was really happy. But I am the only one selected and the company is a startup and i am responsible for the entire fullstack development of their site with no technical senior...... I am so nervous and scared to make a mistake...6
My company insists on working in one production environment to save time and every time I try to convince them to set up a work flow with a dev and test environment, they tell me we don't have the time...
Even after I set one up anyway as I'm scared shitless to touch production. They tell me it's faster doing it all in one environment.
They launch an update. Site buggy as hell and doesn't load 90% of the content...
I'm diving back into c++ for a nice opportunity (if that happens) but Jeez I straight up suck balls with exercises... It's depressing, like I can't even solve a very simple problem, I can code from memory pretty much all I learned so far, but when I comes to applying it to a real problem, I become super dumb and don't know what I'm doing anymore...
I've set myself a goal tho, I'll keep doing minimum 5 exercises / days and I have to finish atleast 3 without looking at the solution to understand
I hope this will make me a little bit more interview ready if that day ever comes..4
First day of internship. In super excited, and scared. And excited. And scared. And excited. And scared. And excited. And scared. And...2
Didn't go to work today because of commuting issues.
It's fucking night and I'm receiving notification of boss sending me photo on messenger. back to back.
I haven't opened the app yet and I'm legit scared if it has anything to do with me not coming to work.
Or even worse nudez.
Freshly failed gloriously my degree in interaction design. Now I stumbled into a new job, doing a fullscale company advertisment campaign on cybersecurity for 6500 employees. Alone. Writing concept, gathering stakeholder, requirements and shit. I'm scared.4
New job at new company
Going over current systems
I don't know if I'm excited for the challenge or scared that they have lived with the system like this for that long.3
I love developing apps and software but im scared becoming a dev by profession will ruin the experience for me and drain my soul1
Who the fuck programs grandfather clock to go off after 3 in the morning ... You scared the shit out of me
I watched about 5 minutes of The IT Crowd on Netflix. I already love it, and it makes me scared of the real world xD3
How do you guys know how much to ask for freelance work? I'm always scared to ask too much and lose a client1
Am I the only one who's a final year undergraduate, but isn't sure he/she knows enough about programming and comp sci as they should?
Like I recently went for an interview with a company, and they asked what's the difference between pass by reference and pass by value. Now, this is probably a very basic qs, so I was surprised when I couldn't answer this. So I'm really scared that I don't know enough, also I'm terrible in their group exercises too, I can't see how the others can do it so easily.10
My boss keeps looking into the system log file and being scared of some totally irrelevant messages (for him). Time to introduce permissions in the control panel...1
People who call themselves developers, but lack creativity, are too scared to fail and insist that something can't be done.
NPM feels so broken, so scared to try some Yeoman generators cuz know ill waste 30m making it work..4
Little question - lately I've been thinking about getting a raspberry pi, but is it like really useful? Because it seems like a lot of fun to mess with but I'm scared that after a few months it would begin gathering dust 🤔8
Whenever I need to make any changes related to React-Router, I just curl up in the corner of my room and cry :(
I'm scared of voids in games. Whenever I see a video of a character just falling into it slow or fast, my heart just starts beating faster and I get uneasy.7
Am I the only one who has gotten too much bad feedback on StackOverflow, so that you are too scared to post anything on stackoverflow?5
Have a friend who wants to enrich his coding portfolio but is scared of people copying his more serious code if he puts it up on github.
Told him it's all about open source and he could just keep the more casual code up there while giving access to serious projects on request from a company, but it's not very ideal, is it?
What would you tell him?7
I haven't done any front end stuff in a long time (last time was before jQuery was popular), and since I had some free time lately I decided to check out React and see what it's all about. Turns out that first I had to go trough one week of reading about node.js, npm, jsx, es6/es2015, babel, webpack (and probably something else), but I finally got to React. So far I had no problems with any of this but I have no fucking idea how most of this stuff works behind the curtains and I'm scared.3
My company just hired an older coworker that uses a flip phone 😳
Idk wether to be concerned or scared ..... 😩15
Today's BSD fortune scared the shit out of me.
"panic: kernal segmentation violation. Core dumped
Trying to setup a staging server boss says just use AWS, system admin doesn't like that thought because it doesn't involve him so waited all day for 3 VM's and still not ready... All I need is 3 blank CoreOS VMs nothing fancy like even doing the cloud config no. Anyone else has colleagues scared of moving out of the private high maintenance servers in the basement?6
I maintain a service that people are billed yearly for. A bunch of users just requested a new feature that will require me to build a completely new backend and change a bunch of things that will require a full rewrite of a couple different aspects of the service. I'm both excited and scared. Wish me luck.2
One project deadline coming up, one presentation to be given next week, and 3 exams on consecutive days.
Scared as fuck. 😭
I hope I pass.
Wish me luck!2
I think that win devs that are scared of using a terminal are not real devs. We write structured instructions every day, a terminal is just the same. If they are scared of that they should try writing code with a mouse or devote themselves to artistic painting.
BTW PowerShell sucks for typing, and bash for windows is like a travesty shell4
I hear Devs of all ages blaming everything on imposter syndrome. Everyone is scared and will get back stabbed by our rivals now and then. We cant build cool things if we don't suck it up and go balls out.2
You ever have that moment when you don't know what a part of your code does but you're scared to delete it but you also can't move on and you've got to know and it's like taking a giant leap of faith while screaming continuously.2
Got a new job, joining next week, feeling scared and wondering how my co-workers will be, and if I will be abke to do assigned work properly ! I know the stuff but still..3
DISCLAIMER: don’t read before going to sleep!
~23.15 power cut, street wide. Solved by switching back plong.
23.48 : I heard multiple times a loud sound, like if someone is trying to break a window or so. So, get out of room, go to hall, light is on there. Continue, ready with phone to call 112. Reaches living, kitchen. Finds grandfather that’s fixing something.
EDIT: 00:19 The water installation started one again I felt scared....
Awesome start of the vacation lol
Maybe I should just go to sleep.
To be honest, I was really scared after that power cut that this was a real thing. Fortunately it wasn’t... That once again proves the developer life, working at night, can be hard.7
First time I used a computer, I was a little kid (under 5 years old) and their was some game for little kids to learn various things. It was called "Addy Junior". The first time I played it, some part of the game scared me and I vomited all over my mom's laptop. 😂
What the hell is heppening for all these companies, that is storing plain text passwords. I am fucking scared of the amount. A danish Company was just hacked, and All their passwords was stored in plain text. Who are the morons who built these systems even a fucking toddler should know storing passwords as plain text is wrong -.- 😔😬😡😠2
Started learning C programming through CS50 course.
Hello world?nope.too scared to write the program because everytime I write it, something or the other happens and I stop learning C5
Look what just showed up in my mail today!! Only problem is my laptop's surface makes it very hard for anything to stick on and I'm scared to try :(
Anyways thank you @dfox and co!5
> Me Installs an app
> Launches it
> App greets me
> Just then google duo's monstrous ad comes up and shouts at me, "HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!"
> Gets scared to death at 1 am1
wow, the new devrant just scared the shit out of me for a second.(Web version).
anyways its nice to see devrant like this :)
Working in an Agile software development department (12 dev teams, >100 developers) inside a very old school traditional business (15000 staff, several billion annual turnover) is an uphill struggle that I don’t know if I have the energy to persevere with.
New year is making me think I push the launch button on a product that I spent all of last year building.
For context I should add that I am a senior person / leader in the department so I have to deal with a lot of shit from the suits.
I am scared :< every day our boss comes in and blames someone that he did some shit.... He Never came to me... maybe he think I'm not working... Should do some issues too or I get fired :O3
Today I got new project to estimate.
It's written on python... for windows XP... and code mostly written on Dutch 0_01
I think my HDD just imploded on itself....sounded like the Age of Ultron Sarcovia imploding blackhole scene was happening inside of my rig.
Half asleep on my desk and that noise scared the shit out of me. It was one of my redundant drives so everything should be okay...but still, I'll have to check in the morning and see if anything else got fucked. I'm scared to look - Tomorrow Rundle's problem.
Goodnight devRant <33
Anyone else scared that this fucker can back flip now!?
Anyone know any fuckers that work at BD? We need to get them reall drunk so they don't accidentally iRobot us.7
Basic requirement of every Data Science college internship:
1) 2-3 years of experience... God damn it
2) Research and publications...(yeah right! in 2 years of college in which you taught me how to "work with" C on Turbo-C... I should have god damn publications... Well worked my ass on and have 2, but guess what campus internships says.. " no fucks given man", solve those damn segment tree question first then we will talk)
Its an infinite recursive while loop
I wrote 170 lines of PHP code consecutively and I haven't ran it yet...
I'm scared of sending that form.3
I was browsing through devrant on my phone OP 5t and I noticed a small white pixel near the notification bar
I was shit scared, cause I got a history of damaged LCD with my previous phone.
I tried opening other apps with full screen no change.
Checked lcd test from hardware diagnostics tests.
The white pixel disappeared by itself.2
I always wanted to avoid the stereotypical green text black background terminals especially in public when people keep giving me weird and scared looks, however i realised that in the bright daylight of an outdoor coffee shop, green text on a black background is the only configuration that doesn't make me sprain my eyes. It's actually useful and not just a Hollywood movie trope.2
Considering to switch jobs but too scared of the big world outside of this comfortable little cage.2
This freaked me out... I am watching a video when I decided to check out medium... And what is the top story about? The V8 Engine....
I am learning to use Node.js6
One of my friends brought vape oil to class and was giving it out. (To eat) He gave it to everyone close to me it. I refused. He told everyone it would give them a high. I had to tell an adult. I feel like I did wrong and I’m scared of my friend find out if they will unfriend me. I’m scared. What should I do?13
So this morning, I was having problems with Explorer.exe. So I did a sfc /scannow to fix it.
After booting, my PC would not boot. I thought I did something to break it. I kept turning it off and on. I was scared that I broke my computer again.
I plugged out my keyboard. It booted.
Then I realized--it was my stupid broken keyboard being weird again.
So im new here and trying to find my way. There is one colleague who's been sick for a couple of days and just came back.
Note on the appearence of this person: big, tattooed bearded, but im not scared easily ;)
Trying to introduce myself: "Hi, let's shake hands: i'm [name]"
Colleague: "Are you sure about that?"
Yeah. Great week with awkard interactions so far!4
So I and couple of my friends are facing this chrome issue where 'waiting for proxy tunnel' , apparantly it's changing my location too,
It should return .co.in and returns .ae ,
Wtf I'm scared as hell, for now Firefox is a lifesaver ♥️3
I am gonna freak out, a week and a half to go back to school and I still haven’t figured out what to do for senior project.
What did you all do for your senior projects if any?
I have an idea but I’m scared I’ll have to work on my own.
First time making a bootable HDD partition and I've either deleted its boot sector or succeeded in making my external HDD bootable.
I wanna restart to test if it works but I'm actually really scared. Rip.
I'm in this company for about 15 months. It's one of the big name company. I'm a senior dev here. In my team we follow agile development. In starting I was just working on my part mostly. Then my manager raised concern to me for not taking ownership and helping others.
I started doing things what I could do. Like code review, API discussion, design discussion etc..
Now, the thing is I usually get upset when people go with 'lazy' solutions because I feel bad design leads to maintenance overhead, and it happened to us in past. We had to spend weekends to make things work. So, I started making code review, design review strict.
Some people didn't like it. But my manager was supportive, or at least I think so.
Some days back manager took me in a one-o-one discussion and told me one of the colleague kinda complained against me.
Now, my manager is not involving me into design discussions and API discussions. There are some new features are coming and I am not informed. I get to know things only in scrum-updates.
Am I about to get fired? I'm not gonna lie, I'm so scared. I can't put down papers as I'm already into 4th company in 7 years.
This thought is just killing me. What should I do? I'm so alone.7
Debating whether or not to buy my new PC, kinda scared to switch to ryzen but excited to build the rig now that I know what I'm doing...
Should I do it guys?8
Ok so second week of my new job is almost done.
—first I ever feel genuinely happy—
First week just read docs and did one task in two days
Second week did about 4 tasks in 4 days in addition to some requests that were not on task management software.
—But when u love something your afraid to LOSE it !! —. 😞
But still im insecure. The devs who have been there a year or a bit less can probably pull off all these tasks in one day. Is it me or is it normal? Should i be worried that after the 3 month probation period they’d argue i wasnt as productive and let me
Go? Or is it expected for new devs to take some time in getting to know the custom php code base they have and each functionality in the software?
If so what do you think is the appropriate time by which a new dev should be able to do as many tasks efficiently?
—IM SCARED THIS IS THE BEST JOB EVER AND I DONT WANNA LOSE IT 😪—3
Honestly thinking really seriously about deleting facebook, as it occupies a good portion of my day with its scrolling up and down.. However I am bit scared that I am going to miss out on like friend's stuff (or people that I know a bit closer), news and all that.. Has anyone done it and can provide with his/her experience on how to tackle this?8
I'm working at a big furniture store on the weekends to earn a little bit of extra money during my computer science bachelors.
The only annoyance is that the job has absolutely nothing to do with programming...
Should I quit to try get an internship as a developer? What holds me back is a real lack of confidence & experience. I wanna get more into programming but I'm also scared I would suck ass in a real company, although I have already worked with a lot of differnt languages & paradigms during my studies.
What to do devrant?2
So I'm starting a new job in April, which will be my first 100% dev job. When I interviewed in January, they said I would work as an in house resource, and would most likely start off working with CMS systems etc to ease myself into this role, before transitioning to more advanced work. I was asked to come in for a meeting today, to look at a potential project.
Long story short, I'm being tasked with rewriting a frontend for their biggest customer to Angular, and this would most likely span over a year or so.
I can't decide if I'm excited or hilariously scared.3
I posted two of my projects a few days ago to producthunt one did very well and what came out of it is i got offered a fulltime job in my town.
That will be my first job if i pass their test im doing tomorrow and Im scared beyond shittless. Not from test but from the whole experience. All of it happened too fast. Im starting to doubt myself now. And once again scared shittless. Fuck you brain!2
So I have been recruited to do some IT ish work for a local business. I have been offered a couple of hundred bucks to take a set list of programs off of about 40 pcs. All windows. Sounds like the perfect job for a script, not my specialty. So what might be the best method? Using a batch script to CD to the respective directories and just DEL the folders for the target programs?5
Halloween is approaching and I wonder why anyone would pay $20 for a haunted house when they can run their code and see all the errors and get scared for free 😂😂
The joy of getting laravel finally configured on my new machine is just the best. I think I scared my boyfriend fist pumping so hard3

I'm so scared that if I fall asleep then I'll wake up and it'll be tomorrow and I'll have to go in and get asked questions all day at 10minute intervals instead of being able to code that I'm putting off going to sleep so I have longer to adjust to this horrible fate
I read about wasm and being a web dev Im now scared.
So I want o learn c++. Even if not for wasm it would still be really cool to have that language in my toolbox.
Any recommendations where to start?6
Just scared the SHIT out of myself after accidentally shorting the live and ground connections. Piece of advice: the probe on your oscilloscope (ground) is probably shorted to the live connection on its plug. DO NOT TOUCH IT AGAINST A LIVE PCB - YOU WILL CREATE A DEAD SHORT AND A REALLY LOUD BANG. Now the whole fucking house is in darkness, it's 11pm, and I'm too scared to get to the fusebox.2
Ah ffs, its 1 AM and my tube light stopped working all of a sudden.
Climbed on a table to check the tube, the tube didn't glow and I lost balance and BANG! I fell. I hope I didn't wake up dad. Man, I should seriously lose some weight.
I hope I didn't break my laptop. Too scared to check. Plus leg hurts. Bruise.
Feels like I shall have a swell leg in the morning. But again, I wouldn't have to go out. So that's a plus.5
Finally I finished the exams, now I have to write my thesis. An agency who wants remain anonymous at the moment told my supervisor to choose a student who will works out on the ransomware argument. The relator was a little bit scared about consequences but I'm pressing to write a controlled ransomware in a closed network brtween virtual machines. What qualities a good ransomware should has?
Mutable structure to avoid antivirus detection? Good exploits and vulnerability scanners to make itself viral? The payload should stay in the code or should be downloaded from a server? I need some reference on analysis of vx codes, any help?
So first, I haven't finished my CS degree
Currently working in CS position ( didn't lie... degree was pending told them as such, still hired me)
Currently getting offers from other companies.... Kinda want to transition but scared to get turned away for lack of degree.
Basically completed portion of degree, but have grown disinterested in completing ....
What do you guys think? Still finish?? Or use my current experience to move forward??3
Devs are divided on gitlab blunder, some appreciate their honesty and transparency while other are either cursing them or grateful that they didn't use it. But think like this :
You own a MacBook and you love it like your baby, if someone drops it, there is good probability it won't break but it will sure give you a fucking heart attack. You won't ever let that person touch your MacBook.
Gitlab just did that. They scared the hell out of the developers.
I hope everyone learns from this and it doesn't happen to anyone in future.4
Why does something always break when I walk in to a room? Usually it's just someones computer that crashes but for example a few weeks ago a display adapter at school just completely died...3
So, I have and use Windows 10 Home. I recently experienced dumb crashes without any error warning before or afterwards. I have no idea what's happening, but It's terrible. I'm also scared of switching to Linux. Is there any way to fix it?8
Ah, the end of a very long work day, a beatiful time for me to click"update and shutdown" instead of "shutdown" on my laptop and being to scared to close the lid because I don't want to meet the thorn of God for ignoring the ancient wisdom of "Do not turn off your computer"
I’m a bit scared that we as developers will replace ourselves with AI - sure there must be developers for AI and special stuff AI can’t handle at that time, but... I think that not so many developers are needed in the future?5
Nearing the end of my holiday in this fantastic city that is Warsaw, Poland. Great place, lots to see and do. No computer only my phone, too scared to look at emails. Fuck them, everyone needs a break and change of environment. 👍🏼
I think i was like 7 or 8 yo. When school vacation started, my mom joined me in this computer centre near her workplace.
I belive it was a Windows 95 system powered probably by Pentium 2 and i remember playing Aladdin, mario and a fun racing car game.
I remember i liked a lady teacher there and being scared of the male teacher from whom I learned about basic computer peripheral terms like CPU, floppy disc drive etc.

I wish I didn't have to go to work tomorrow and work for my abusive, pretend-to-be-programmer, narcissistic, overly dominant and often mean spirited boss.
I'm seriously thinking about quitting even though I have not worked there for very long, I'm a little scared of the consequences. I obviously won't quit before I have signed something else. But what scares me is the uncomfortable conversation with my boss as well as telling my co-workers who are great.2
i had this crazy dream that there's a code ghost that erases the blocks of code i wrote and produces bugs to my programs... damn this is the first time i got really scared.

I'd like to know from those who are in the industry already, how was the transition from school to actually working for a company?
I'd also really appreciate some bit of advice from everyone.3
Has anyone used CA's Rally for issue tracking? Is it as bad for devs as I've been warned?
We are being forced to use it instead of Jira because of the pretty reports it generates for management and I am kind of scared...5
Something wasn't working as expected in a project I'm responsible for but had some outside help on. When I find out what was wrong I had to run to the bathroom out of shock. The code that was implemented literally scared the shit out of me.
How long before Devrant suffers from the same that ruined Yikyak?
I mean, that started out for students and now it's based on kids slating each others mums, scared all the students away!2
