Is it just me or do others also think programmer jokes like "...converts caffeine and pizza into software" and similar to be fucking annoying?7
My first of "Stop doing" series of rants:
STOP WRITING WRAPPER FUNCTIONS AROUND NATIVE FUNCTIONS THAT DO NOTHING OTHER THEN PASS PARAMETERS THROUGH.
If its not significantly configuring values prior to using in the native function or combining several results, leave it be so NEW DEVS SUCH AS MYSELF aren't having to learn your shitty naming conventions wrapped around every native function to the language. Im a JS dev, not a Dave's witty web stack dev.14
STOP WRITING CRAZY FUNCTIONS FULL OF INSTANTIATIONS THAT I NOR ANYONE WILL EVER BE ABLE TO WRITE UNIT TESTS FOR!!! STOP calling static factory methods that spawn up who knows what in mid function as if Im actually going to be able to mock such a dependency. Better yet, practice test driven development so we don't end up in this mess again11
