Teacher : use"ransomware" in a sentence
Student : I used to know a girl, but then she ransomware
Whole class :2
Le me having a chit chat with a student after sharing about programming in my former high school..
Student: "I learnt Java the other day, and I don't really like it"
Student: "Because we can import existing packages on the community to do almost anything"
Me: "And? How is that bad for you?"
Student: "It's not very challenging, isn't it? I want to build everything in my program with my own code!"
Me: "Listen here, you little shit..."22
- History teacher: The Spanish-Moro conflict lasted 400 years.
- Student: Why didn't they try a different merge tool?2
Student next to me tried to be cool and opened a terminal window and said to me: "I'm hacking someone." He was just running "apt-get update" ...11
Just discovered that our student housing rental portal transmits our password in plaintext.
Interviewer: Do you know about SQL injection?
Interviewer: Okay, how we can prevent it?
Student: Yes, we should prevent it as prevention is always better than cure. It can lead to data loss and other problems so it can be difficult to fix it if it happens. The best case is that nothing like that takes place. [...]
Interviewer: I get it but how?
Student: By not building any web applications.
Interviewer: Nice, you may go. Do not call us. We will call you.20
Github education: You get a bunch of cool free stuff if you are a student.
Intellij: You get all of their IDEs for free if you are a student.
Adobe: You get a discount but you still have to pay 20€ per month as a student.
This is why I love programming and the whole community around it.11
At our first programming course at uni (it was in C), a student asks in class:
Student: what is a pointer?
Teacher: i don't know, i only know Java.
How the hell did the poor guy end up teaching C then?!6
What is AI?
CS student: Artificial intelligence
Graphics Designer: Adobe Illustrator
Biology student: Anthro Insertion
Pervert: Anal Intercourse
Lesson: be careful with your abbreviations2
Someone here said that you could get free stuff from Github if you're a student.
Thank you very much.
I got the Student Developer Pack - 2 year membership!10
As a student trying to find an internship for a software engineering position, my subpar transcript being brought up during the interview always has me like:
Interviewer: "Why is your GPA so shit???"
Me: "Fuck you that's why!"
Being a computer science student and having a lot non-coding-assignments to do, I am proud to say:
I love LaTeX!13
Stuck in the car driving mum today...
She’s concerned about my little brother’s education and asks me “Is it okay to study I.T at University?”
I just turn and look at her like you’ve got to be kidding me. “Mum I’m studying I.T”
The conversation continues with:
What jobs are there in I.T?
What are you going to do with I.T?
You should become a teacher and I’ll open a tutoring centre for you!
*Before learning to code*
Me: It's going to be easy. 😎
*After learning to code*
Me: Ahh,What should I name this variable.😟😟7
Getting paid for my work.
Just because I'm a student, people assume I'll do everything for free and "exposure", while they make money off of my code8
Just got my 'student email address' from university!
Now i can have free JetBrains account and access to github private repos 😍. Yay!11
teacher (me): for the next session, we will need vagrant, please use the command 'vagrant box add…' before coming to class.
student, one week later: I tried your command, but an error came 'vagrant command not found'
me: did you install vagrant?
student: no... why?
Someone awesome was in charge of correcting the official CS exams at our university (blue: student, red: corrector) :-D3
The best part of being an university student?
- Microsoft Imagine
- Office 365 for free
- GitHub Student Developer Pack
- JetBrains Product Pack for Students
- Spotify for only €4.99/month (instead of €9.99)
- Discounts for tech products
And if you're lucky also Adobe CC and AutoCAD.
The worst part?
- The university14
(As a CS student in University)
Teacher 1: I am a new teacher and have an electrical subject and I know you guys hate this and love coding so we will code whatever we study in python so you can actually understand what we are studying
Teacher 2: I am a senior teacher and have an super important computer science subject , I will fuck everything up come to lectures read a ppt that I didn't even make and read the ppt in the most monotonous manner humanly possible and fuck everything up and steal your work if your research with me7
Thanks to whoever said you can get a student license for jetbrains products! Just got mine approved today!19
A friendly reminder that Deutsche Bahn fucking sucks.
Their trains show up 10 minutes later than they would have to everyday.
Once I saw that there was a train that was 120+ minutes late.
Today I had to wait almost 20 minutes at a SINGLE train station. Thus I couldn't enter the next train.
To my luck the next train arrives in an hour.
As a student it makes my life way harder than it already is.
It is not reliable at all.
They charge you with 60€ if you forget your ticket btw.
I don't forget my ticket though. My ticket is my campus card.
Their tickets are fucking overpriced and they are always damn late. I ain't paying for that shit. I would rather ride with a horse to the university than paying for a ticket.
Second EDIT as an update:
They just announced that my next train is going to come 10 minutes later. What a bloody surprise, eh?29
Student approaches recruitment table
Student points to cheap pen giveaway
Student stares at me
Student maintains eye contact until I uncomfortably ask "Can I help you?"
Student: "I like your pens"
(Awkward pause. I expected him to introduce himself or ask for a pen)
Me: "Uh, would you like one?"
(Student nods vigorously, says nothing)
Me: "here you go"
(Student walks away wordlessly)
My PyCharm student license is expiring and I am no longer a student.
I think I need to enroll for another program to activate my PyCharm license.17
Don't be afraid to make mistakes, they're the key to learning code/anything.
A wise man once said:
"The only difference between a master and student, is that the master has failed more times than the student has even attempted"2
To be truly honest I am not going to move from GitHub and only hope I have is that Microsoft adds more to the already great GitHub student package4
Someone else here said that you could also get free Jetbrains products if you're a student.
Thank you very much.
I got the Student License!4
Finally graduated only to realize that my degree did not provide hard skills, only outdated practices and student loans.2
Still an engineering student and hence cannot afford an expensive setup in my hostel. My current setup is3
Didn't believe it till it happened to me!!
Was talking to a third year student...
Me: What languages can you code in?
Student: HTML, CSS
Making a Package Manager from Scratch is hard.
Making a Scratch-like education coding software in XAML is hard.
Setting up a server with zero knowledge is hard.
Creating a new file extension for my project and making it work is hard.
But, as a student,
studying and coding is the hardest thing.
Same 24 hours for everyone, and I should code as well as study.
The most precious thing in Earth.
NASA dislikes this rant.
clean_air_rocks dislikes this rant.
no_suicide dislikes this rant.
students_who_study_and_code_and_wants_to_do_everything loves this rant.3
Professor: Envision a person as an object, what methods would it have?
Prof: Yes, good example.
Other student: Jump
Prof: yes, people also do that
Prof: Well yes, but I'd prefer we don't take this any further27
So I'm still a student in college.
I'm always in the library either writing code, or studying math (huge nerd).
People talk with each other, talk with girls, laugh with girls, and I'm just doing my thing.. alone.
I'm also reasonably attractive and super thin, and so girls also look at me alot (which scares me).
So people think I'm this super mysterious programmer guy that always has headphones on and is doing God knows what... Probably also awkward and super shy (which really is the case)..
Then out of nowhere, I'm laughing, smiling and having a blast because of something I read on devRant..
My cheeks hurt from because I try to keep the laughs in, and then when I can't take anymore I get out from library just to be able to laugh :D ...
Anyone else in a similar situation? Can you relate?13
Met a student who has failed and appearing for re-exam.
Me: You need to work hard to get distinction (~85%).
He: Who wants distinction? I just need passing marks (35). Marks doesn't matter, knowledge does.
Me: Student who strives for more knowledge will surely get distinction.
So some student complained that the busses are to full in the morning (they are filled with students).
Student: "why don't they drive more busses?"
Me: "because that would raise prices of busses since more drivers and fuel is needed. It's simple economics"
Student: "Public transit already is way to expensive, they can easily drive more busses and trains for that"
Me: "public transit is already way to expensive.... Oh look! An iPhone, MacBook, AirPods, Apple Watch, Dr Martins and other overpriced shit you have with you now!"2
[Student]: So do you know that course about computers?
[Me]: mhm.....they all are kinda...you mean it essentials?
[Student]:Yes! The one where we type code between tags, right?
[Me]: yes, I am helping with that course.
[Student]: Oh cool...so how do I do thumbnails?
[Me]: /Opens the IDE/ same as a regular image except for it's a link that opens a bigger version of an image /blah blah blah/. You know how to insert the image on the page, right?
[Student]: Don't we just open the Google and search images?
[Me]:...omg my shift is over...
I wish I was making it up.

Found out about this on DevRant and got enrolled. Feels awesome!
PS Does anybody know any other things a student can avail for free online to help me in my coding endeavour?14
The dilemma for computer science student every day: attending to the lecture or catching up with current projects ?
Let the coin decide for us !3
When I signed up to devRant 2 min ago it asked me about "Skills (js, xcode.. .)".
I was like "eeeew... Well.. Getting to university in time?"
- me, student in the first semester.12
He makes university trips as well now, after having settled at home. He's adapted to the student life well.5
Hello, I'm new here and I was wondering if there were other students on here. I'm fine with talking to anyone but I can't help but feel too intimidated to talk to experienced professionals.38
*me teaching someone to code*
Me: So what do you think will happen when we run this?
Student: ummm... I don...🤔
Random: I KNOW! It does xyz 😄
Student: agh yea, it does xyz 😅
Me: (ffs) 😐
Nothing gets learned in the end 😮1
The student life smell is strong with my Desktop too,
and no I don't have a problem I only drink and smoke socially also when a bug takes longer than an hour to fix...
Which is most of the time
Okay I might have a little problem10
Teacher to student: convert this active voice into passive voice: “I made a mistake”.
Student: “I was made by mistake”1
I paid off my student loan today. It's not the USA level of student loans but still, my chest feels lighter.2
I finally got the GitHub Student Pack, for some reason, I’m so happy and excited to get it finally.😀6
Another day on my tutoring job
This guy who's got no idea about what is he doing here (I had a rant before), runs to me while I'm helping another student. He interrupts me, shoves a USB key to my face:
[Student]: can you do something for me? Can you upload something on my ftp coz I gotta go now.
/*Each student in out school got personal ftp and submitting under the right directory is usually a part of an assignment and cost grades*/
[Me]: I can't, it's against the school policy
[Student (annoyed)]: But I have to go!
[Me]: can't help you, sorry
[Student (still annoyed)]: So you're not gonna do it, huh?
[Me]: No, sorry
[Student (passively aggressively)]: So I guess I'll get a zero for this one.
And he says it like it's my fault!
And he walks away. Me and students I'm helping are shocked. The guy is in his at least 50s. And no common sense whatsoever.5
I'm a student in applied computer science and yesterday I had a course where we use drupal and we needed to update our drupal site. The professor told us at the beginning that in a previous lesson some people needed more than 2 hours to do this. I started laughing because whybin the world would you need more than 2 hours to update a site, right?
It took 3 hours to update my site -_-5
Is it really possible to become a good dev with only sololearning ?
I'm a student that already destroy my dev teacher(bad school, no money) so I'm trying to improve myself, but i cannot see the result.. :(13
*starts to work on a new project while others remain unfinished*
*bulb lights up* oh look a new project idea
*goes on to start on that one instead*
Being a student developer is awkward.3
When you to busy paying for student stuff and can't afford a new Bluetooth headset.. Don't know why I'm studying software when I obviously should be a an engineer, duh..2
being a first year IT student:
- help, I can't check-in to my flight
- my computer is slow, I heard you can fix it (still runs xp)
- can you fix the printer?
- my laptop is broken (error message pops up with the actual solution) and there was an error
- did you read it?
- did I read what?
Is this gonna get better anytime soon?18
I just realized there's a Student Education Pack on GitHub and got it after 5 seconds of requesting. Yay!!!3
Dear all students with a .edu email account.
The GitHub student pack now contains $150 worth of Amazon AWS credits, and bunch of other incredibly nice things. Have fun!
Being productive on personal projects instead of playing league of legends on the weekends. (student)2
Finally applied for a GitHub student pack. The benefits are simply awesome. :)
"Google it" and "don't be afraid of complex code, someone wrote it" - A fellow student at the time.2
When you're a CS student and you're stuck doing an internship where you're not doing any programming 😲6
Computer scientist student:
Mom : Shut down the computer and start studying.
Me: Moooom I am studying.1
Seeing Mark Zuckerberg multibillionarie. I am poor af (Still student btw). Also looking Linux kernel at GitHub.2
So, there was an art student yesterday at my dorm complaining about free speech etc. She told me that they where trying to bring the schools proxy down.
I was pretty impressed because it's an art student!
She then proceeded to tell me she had downloaded kali linux and was learning html...3
When you find another student code..... it repeats the same code for the LCD in 340 lines of if ;-)1
Professor: "I've been using java for many, many years and know close to everything."
Student: "How do I compile my code on the unix server?"
Professor: "uhh.... I don't know."
Let's start hiring people who actually know what they're doing.1
I'm a 16 yrs old student, learning to be a software developer. I have successes, but I can't share with anyone. My parents don't understand what am I doing, my classmates neither. Literally nobody. Maybe 1 or 2 people. Can I share with you, dear devRant community? Or I shouldn't share, 'couse it's not a rant?16
Since I was a kid, I always thought that my dream was to be a Computer Engineer.
As a Engineering Student, my dream is to have a 8h+ night sleep.1
As a student on platforms like these, hearing people talk about languages and concepts you've never heard of6
As student in Belgium in computer science I finally become a freelancer !! I am now officially a developer who get paid for his job :D8
I'm still a student, not dev yet.
Thanks for reminding me that I don't completely belong in here😂11
It’s the last week of “Theory of computation” and now I’m thinking why the hell would I enroll in an 8am lab.11
This is true incident from my college...
We had computer networks oral exam.
Sir asked student what is Socket.
Student answered "That one on the wall"
Was logging in my student account to check whether the system actually registered my admission and here I go.
And this is not just some college. This is a website every engineering student shall use throughout the country.
Also this is not the first time this happened.1
Hi my dev friends... I have applied for Microsoft Student Partner, and need your support. I have uploaded a Video for the 1-minute Video challenge, and need good stats on that. Please watch the video and if you like it, feel free to hit the like button and Comment... (That will be awesome)
P.S. - Every step counts...6
We have this one professor in a mathematics course.
He sits there having no plan of what he's doing. He literally opens his python Jupiterbook with latex enabled, writes a complex equation and tries to solve it in 10 minutes. Makes mistakes every few steps and deletes his formatted equation that isn't even interpreted yet (we see the cdot etc. instead of * which makes it even harder to read). Every few minutes some student corrects him and he deletes it again.
Why can't you just think first and then write and try to teach us?
Use as much time as you want as long as you don't have to keep reverting back the humanly unreadable latex equation.
Hell, you are also allowed to use a basic pen and paper. Trust me, that shit is more readable, even if you have a bad handwriting, than your squeezed in complex untranslated latex equation in Jupiterbook.
Btw. he also streams with no zooming in I might add.
Am I supposed to trying to read your small as shit, focus on what you're teaching while you keep making mistakes or write it down on paper and practice the given tasks?
On top of that, he records the zoom conference but he doesn't share it anywhere on the college forum so that people who have missed it can download it and rewatch it.
Everything he does makes no sense. How did he become a mathematics professor with a PhD?3
how long do you guys code per day?
being a student i have now extreme difficulties in time management😐
need some advice...9
Studying on computer science has its cons mainly when every other student thinks we can hack Facebook and wifi. Computer science==hacking.1
For being a student and working as freelancer you need to be pro googler, otherwise you'll fail in both.
Yeah so... I‘m an IT student and am supposed to have a certificate exam about software engineering RIGHT AT THIS VERY MOMENT!
The person from the certificate place arrived half an hour late due to a delay of her flight.
That sucks alot because many students have other exams just after this one.
I always go one hour early to exams so even if 2 trains are delayed I will be there in time.
I would expect said person to do the same.
It gets even worse. We sit there expecting to start the exam half an hour late and guess what:
The distributed exam is not the one we are meant to take......... FOR FUCKS SAKE why did I even come here?!?!5
I'm on my last year on my master in computer science. What can I except when I'm done? Give me your wisdom! :) Please don't answer "hell" etc without a explanation haha :) I'm doing a master in AI and distributed system.7
I'm currently an intern in a startup
I started 3 months ago and I will finish in 1-2 months
From the beginning, all the team is very nice with me and say that I do a really great job
I could learn many many things and I can say my ideas during the project
This is a message to CEO/CEO, you see, if you offer a really good internship with interesting tasks and technologies, student like me are really motivated, want to learn, want to really participe to the project even if I do more hours than I have to do
Because we, students, are like you : interested in new technologies and great ideas
Offer good internship and you will be happy to have good and motivate intern in your Company
One of the higher ups just sent me a message on my private phone number after 10pm asking if we could discuss something work related. I'm a working student, leave me alone.5
Not the code review itself, but having repeatedly to nag my project leader just to get a review is the worst.
I'm "only" a student and it's a project without fix deadlines so it's alright with me that it is low priority.
But - I want to learn something here, I really do, I'm new to C# and far from mastery. Apart from that my focus was mainly hardware during the last years.
I need some fucking brutal and honest criticism on my code, damnit!
*Nervous student comes in for the first interview I am conducting as a developer*
Me (as an interviewer): What is best approach to search data?
Student: It will take linear time but if data is sorted, we can do it in logarithmic time.
Me: [Smiles] Take a hint Hash Map?
Student: Yes, with it, we can do it in constant time.
Me: Okay, Bloom Filter anytime?
Student: *sweating* noooo...
Me: Okay. I am a developer so I know this.
Student: *about to cry*
Me: No problem but why will you search data when there is no problem? Don't you have better work.
Student: *confused* yup
Me: *laughs but immediately controls* Take it lightly. You know what you need to do this job. You are HIRED. :)2
They say "Don't deploy on friday".
That's why we, the part time student team, deploy on saturdays.2
Years ago I was on the board for the European Student Card pilot.
What a beauty.
It went well and fully operating around three years later. Then escalated and got a new project name, myAcademicID.
Requirements became more political so I left.
I am still registered on the dev & sandbox. AMA4
Ok guys I need advice, haven't posted in a long time.
A profesor is asking my team to build a java application that runs on a server with a very specific tech-stack (database, container, encryption, use-case and UI design) it's basically a fully fledged app that I know would cost somebody hundreds if not thousands to buy. The thing is I'm getting the feeling he's using us to write this code and then later distribute it while all we get is 20/100 points we need to pass the course. I heard rumors...
So what I wanna do is throw it on github (he's obviously expecting me to open source it at which point he forks it and bam!) and slap the most restrictive license on it. Now I don't have much experience with licensing or this sort of thing... any advice? I want to be able to go at his throat if I ever find out he used my code which I'm supposed to spend 3 weeks writing for free for a fucking "uni" project that's worth a fifth of my grade in that one semester course!19
For context, I'm a web dev student. One of my modules is UX.
These are my exam questions.
Now, please tell me HOW THE FLYING FUCK this is relevant to WEB DEVELOPMENT?
Seriously, I get studying UI, but uncanny valley; really??
Fuckin' hate being a student. Give me a job.8
Hidden requirements. Hidden requirements EVERYWHERE.
So much for a hobby project for my student association2
Introduce Git - Promote Collaboration
In the real world they won't work alone. Instead of giving individual projects give them a module to work for.
Example project: Library System
Student 1: Sign-up module
Student 2: Log-in module
Student 3: Book sorting module
Student n: x module
Output: A working system
With this approach, students will learn to work with a team and communicate properly about the project they're working for.2
HRM student: Hey, can I borrow your flash drive?
IT student: Sorry mate, I don't have that now. I left it at home.
HRM student: Seriously? How could you left if at home? You shouldn't have taken IT course. Lol
IT student: Oh I see, so where is your
Graters & Peelers
Mandolines & Slicers
Salt & Pepper Mills
Colanders & Strainers
Measuring Cups & Spoons and more? I guess you better drop all your subjects now.2
Student temp is 2/3 done his term, and I'm pretty sure he hasn't learned anything.
When I was a student temp, I built a video chat platform.
Question for my programing elders.
I am a high school student. If/when I am asked to make a client a website, what is the general price that I should charge? (Remember, I am a slightly inexperienced american highschooler, so I don't want to over or under charge them for my work)17
While TAing an introductory python class:
Student 1: What were comments again? A pound sign?
Student 2: No, they are hashtags3
I am a TA for a college level introductory Java programming course. We are doing a virtual help desk to walk student through debugging and any other issues.
Today I got on a teams call with a student and with desperation in his voice he says, "Please, help me with the red..."
I could barely contain myself. Poor soul haha!
How can I learn to use Linux effectively as a developer? I’m a first-year CS student at university and based on what I’ve read here and on the web, I need to know the Linux system and it’s various distros. Any resources are greatly appreciated 😁5
Sooooo... I've felt a bit lost during my years as a student and maybe this is a nice place to finally talk about it.
I've had my first programming experiences in school (back then it was delphi, a Pascal variant), then decided after graduating I want to study computer science. I've stuck with it and will finish my masters degree in a few months. (Took me a year longer than the university plans but will likely have a very good grade)
Since i have little programming experience and never coded anything useful (mostly study projects or simple programming tasks) I've always been struggling with depressions, worries of being not good enough and never finding a job etc pp, but in the last few months it got worse since I NEED to apply for jobs now as i graduate next may. I'd really like to improve and found some "learn how to code" websites but the progress seems still slow and meaningless when I compare myself to all those guys out there:
- those comparing several hardware/software pieces casually since they know all the (dis)advantages and specs off by heart
- those who have fierce discussions about languages, libraries, runtimes etc
- those who solve the problems in coding websites with 3 lines and incredibly mathematicsl proofs for why this shortcut works (fastest)
- basically the guys who discuss so many things i've never even heard of
I just feel so lost, useless and like i missed years of learning things everybody else just obviously knows now. Is there any way to catch up? I thought about trying to join a local Chaos Computer Club but they sound like they wouldn't be fond of a noob like me.6
Last update on my student job.
Today is my last day. Even thought it was tough sometimes it was a really good experience.
I worked with amazing people and had a little taste of IT limitation. Didn't had full admin access so I was limited on a lot of things I had to do but that taught me to say no to my supervisors when some things were not possible.
I'm very proud of the final result so do my superiors and colleagues. I'm really impressed by what I was capable of doing and that gives more self confidence. I know I made the right choice and I know I'll continue enjoy computer science as much as I do today.2
You know that point when your pc is just not capable enough? And you are on holidays with so many ideas that you want to code up?
Never thought being a broke student would be this bad.13
How do I shake the feeling that I need to know everything? As I learn more about development and its various aspects I feel like I need to master every technology and I know that's impossible but I can't help but feel it. It gets to the point sometimes where I'm paralyzed with indecision and I can't decide what to start learning4
When you inherit some code from the job student and you notice how well written and commented it is. I'm glad he is soon returning as a fulltime employee. Hope he will keep this up.
Hello devRant, CS student here.
Thinking of applying for a student job to get some dev experience. How much knowledge is usually required? I know some languages, but never had a bigger project in uni.2
Took 6 months off from coding...
I swear I can be stupid but please bear with me, I try really hard
Student: I f*cking hate this calculus I am not even good in math.
Professor: Then why did you choose Computer Engineering it needs a lot of math.
Student: Because I love computer.
Addition to my posts about getting accepted to faculty of information technology at the Czech Technical University in Prague:
I am now officially in the student life mode :D
Tasting the life at a dormitory and living on my own... (still okay considering that I don't have to work for money, I just ask my mom to send more money when I don't have anything to eat so I can buy the cheapest food I can find to live yet another day 😇)
Soo does anyone reading this post happen to be living at koleje Strahov? I'm in block 7 and you can find me by looking for an MSI gaming notebook with devRant stickers all over it. Hit me up and we can go out and have some beers :)1
During my time at university my friend got me a job, he said. He explained there was someone who was a member of some student club where they needed a website. Me and this person met and discussed the scope of the project, "nothing major but it will take some time" I thought to myself.
I gave her a rough estimation and told her my rate (extremely cheap). She looked at me and said "I was thinking a case of beer would be enough?".
We were both students, but seriously?? I almost contacted a proper company to give them the details just to get a real cost estimation to shove it in her snug fucking face!
Got a Student job during July. When I arrived the first day they gave me the project they need me to work on.
They want me to create an intranet for the department based on a SharePoint infrastructure.
After 3 days of working on it, I'm starting to realize how hard it'll be since I don't have any admin access (would have been too easy). It's a multinational company so I have limited access to everything. No access to Sharepoint designer, neither to Sharepoint Admin Center and on top of everything, I don't even have the right to embed scripts to the pages.
Oh, and did I mention that I'm learning Sharepoint from scratch ?
It's fun to learn and to try to overcome problems and limitations but I'm really starting to stress about the final result ...4
hey, devs! A Question
As a student developer how to find the best opportunities and internships????8
How do you come up with side projects? I'm currently looking for a side project that will be useful for me, an maybe for others in the long run.
Any suggestions? What do you think the market needs right now?
Keep in mind I'm currently a student so I don't have a lot of money to spend on investments.5
That feeling when everyone left the student accomodation already, so the internet speeds are actually decent
Student: Hey will you be a reference for me?
Me: Of course!
HR: Hello, Student says you are a reference for them. Please fill out this form.
Form: 20 long answer questions.
Sometimes I regret my decisions. I am a perfectionist, so this form will take me an hour to fill out haha. This is definitely a reason why I don't say yes to every student who asks for a reference, and only those who actually make me remember them.2
Any devs running some open source projects & looking for helpers?
Sincerely, compsci student looking to learn and code8
Coding in vim as a student:
[me]: hey, could you help me real quick?
[classmate]: Yeah sure. Okay, I see.
*classmate takes control of the keyboard*
[classmate]: see if you ju- wait, huh, what? Why can't I type?
[me]: sorry, I use vim.
[classmate]: this is stupid, you should use sublime it's so good
kinda pissed at github/microsoft right now. my friend applied for the student developer pack before microsoft bought github and got accepted in 10 min, i'm still waiting and it's been three days. how long did yours take?13
Some assholes in my college said that Informatics (computer science) student doesn't need to be able writing code. Excuse me, what the fuck?! What are you doing all this time?4
At my school library there is this system, made in php, to make monthly reports on student access, since everyone goes to the library everyone knows it and the guys who did it were considered the best of the school. So since I used to work on the library the director asked me to add some features to it, and I was like "Sure, cool I get to work on a real system", what I didn't know was that the system had no head or tail, the core were two files "load.php" and "db.php", everything was in those two files, no design patterns, no oops, safly that wasn't even the worst part, the modules were loaded through Ajax, which called files with lines like
Literally most of the damn HTML was "echoed" WTH,
My programming paradigms unit has decided to explore different teaching/learning environments by creating lecture/workshops. Imagine a massive room with big projector screens at the front and smaller screens lined up against the wall at the back. The lecture room seats are designed around tables that are gradually elevated so it’s similar to a lecture hall but you’re sitting at discussion tables.
There’s the usual lecture with all the slides up around everywhere, there’s nice wheelie chairs and dimmer lighting... can’t tell if we’re at a conference or some awards night. Then all of a sudden, we’re coding in teams (tables) and uploading our work on to forums to discuss with the rest of the lecture hall. WHAAAAAAAT
Really different and quite enjoyable experience, there’s more than one tutor walking around to help, there’s mics for people to present.
Just sharing my new experience of forward learning environments that didn’t cause feelings of anxiousness for once or boredom. It was kind of mind blowing, wish it was always like this.
Professor: Where is your coding assignment? Didn't you complete it?
Student: My dog ate my coding assignment.
Professor: How can a dog eat a coding assignment?
Student: My dog started off eating a couple of "bits" of my assignment and didn't realize how did a few "bits" turn into many "bytes".😮1
@devs with sizeable student loans:
How are you finding paying back your loans? Is it super tight? Not at all? How long are you/have you taken to repay?
I know this will be different for everybody but I’m interested in seeing a variety of answers!11
Just got a letter telling me I need to pay my own health insurance as a student. What's that, you want all my money? Fml4
Working as an cooperative student in an big IT company. I shall continue the work of another student (Something in Frontend Visualization) for their Sharepoint sites.
The other student wrote a fucking 40 page university evaluation (requirements, first architecture and sl on) about the concept of this project and did not have the time to implement it.
But instead of giving me this research paper, my advisors say “Be creative and don’t use this work. Do it by your own.”
wtf? Why has this student even done all of this work and why do I have to waste many hours in order to begin everything from day zero??2
I recently volunteered to be the admin of our student website. Boy was I in for a ride... I can only imagine the conversation went something like this:
IT: previous IT
P: some person
P: we need some additional sites that are unrelated to the main site, where should I put the files?
IT: just put them inside the folder that has the files of the main site, it doesn't matter.
P: we have some sub-domains that we do not use anymore, what do we do with them?
IT: just delete the files, don't bother with deleting the subdomain
P: we are having an event, what do we use to store user applications, we used google forms previously and it worked just fine.
IT: we will have the applications go to our mySQL database, but everything will be in one table so that it's more readable.
I mean I'm still a college student so there might be some deeper meaning to this, but still i can't look at this without my ocd getting the better of me.1
I understand that front end frameworks are important when scaling an app/project but it’s not a necessity for small student projects.
Can someone make me understand how a student can make use of the frontend frameworks not just for the sake of learning it but the framework actually being a necessity4
I'm a CS student, and I'm having serious doubts. I love programming and my job on campus has me making a .net site and such which I enjoy.
However, I'm doing really bad in calculus again, and if I fail it I may never get to retake it because it's my third try. I know I can get a job without a degree, but I'm unsure if I even want to program anything that would require knowledge of calculus anyway. I understand what it accomplishes, but I don't want spend the rest of my life applying calculus. Is it really that important in industry? Or is it just something college puts an undue pressure on?
My CS courses don't challenge me much, and I enjoy them a little, but is being great at calculus required?5
It's the end of the semester and the 'talent hunters' are crawling out of their holes again.
No, I don't want a job at your borderline pyramid scheme firm, and that it's in another country doesn't really help your case. Now kindly fuck off and leave me alone.
Besides I'm not even graduating that year and as I've come to learn in the past few weeks, nobody wants to hire a student that wants to work parttime ._.3
Been for about a tear now, so hi!
Just had to share.
After finishing a 3 year cs degree with shitty grades, i Just landed my drram Job!2
I want a horror movie with some undergraduate IT student watching coding tutorials, ending up really liking videos of a specific youtube channel.
Then, the student send a message to that creator, and they start knowing each other. After a year, the channel author invites the student to come over.
That youtube channel is called Carl H.2
We were learning a programming language for implementing our idea in hackathon.
A student who is a comp student and has no idea about coding asked us "What u do in hackathon? Do u hack computers... :/"5
So I got a scam email... well I hope it’s a scam email
Saying that they know my email and password, stating the email and password (I think it was the correct password or maybe older version), have installed whatever on my OS and want blackmail me w/ my info for money or else they’ll release it in 48 hrs and ugh
I have exams, honestly can’t be fucked dealing with this.
It is a scam right???
If each developer can be substituted with finite number of student developers and each student can be substituted with finite number of answers to StackOverflow questions, then who would ask and answer the latter? 🤔4
Newton Asked: How To Write Four Between Five?
Pharma Student: Nice Joke MBA Student Said: Not Possible
To start of I'm a student in the Netherlands, I have just finished finished a support management study and I'm currently starting with a IT Management study on MBO 4 lvl.
At the moment I'm in conflict scout doing the IT Management study or doing a application development study as I just don't know what to do. I kind of want do development as I do it in my free time and I like it but I also want to do data center engineering as I also like to work with the hardware.
Should I take a month break of my study and try to get in contact with company's to work there to finalize my decision or should I just drop in the towel and do this study without knowing if I'm going to like it in the end.
And if you work at a company in the Netherlands do you think i can do some orientation internship at your company or do you guys know some places to look at.
So I was looking for an internship online and I came across this. How can someone expect so much from a student? The stipend is only (₹5000) i. e. $70/month.
Most of the companies on this site are basically treating jobs as student internships looking to get work done at cheap rates.
I have a sort of mini career fair at my internship tomorrow. I work at a University Affiliated Research Facility. Any tips for talking to job reps?2
Am really confused between app development and web development. Where should I proceed guys?
Am CS student right now. Mostly learn C# (WPF, xamarin) in mean time.
But recently am getting love on Angular 4. For that I learn typescript (I know HTML and CSS basics btw) and willing to start learning it in upcoming vacations.
But thoughts coming in my mind is am doing good to get into web development? If yes what should I do with the knowledge of C# then? 😣😣. Or should I stick with app development and get dipper knowledge in it?
Really confusing stuff man. Am really need some good assistance on this topic!1
When a CS student asks me (business IT student) how he can get kubernetes to work in PHP.
(No, I did not swap those two)
So here is the question.
Am a CS student and interested in app development languages like C++ and C#. And leaning a lot about those languages and practicing.
Today in our class some member from **** company came and they told us that are going to arrange a 2 days workshop for php, JS, Ajax, HTML and CSS languages. After that they are going to offer a internship also. 😃
So should I go or not?
Intrested in app development but still wanted to have knowledge about web. Really confused on what to do! 😕😕😕8
!rant but sometime you need to share some positive vibes.
Found out I could get $50 credit for digital ocean from github because I am a student.
So now I can learn a lot for free, and if I mess something up I can just create a new machine.
So now I am first learning how to work with docker and the communication between containers.
Good to see people want to encourage devs :)2
Sitting and waiting for my programming paradigms lab... feeling really anxious...
How long does it take until you’re more confident with coding?4
I'm so sick of having to maintain a 10 year old back-end codebase that is built on a proprietary php framework that isn't documented at all. I am still a student, and I'm left mostly alone to figure things out. It's been a while since I started, but it sucks all the energy out of me to figure out how things are built...
My senior is too busy with other projects so when I ask a question I only get answers hours later, and we work remote. He is so busy that he has to consistently work overtime.
I am so overwhelmed...5
Have a ton of work to do for the exam this semester. I even have to work on things I'm not used to, like normalizing data for a HyperNEAT program and securing that data, but what am I forced to do?
Spend two weeks in Greece wasting time on badly planned tours... Thanks education :/6
It's really getting hard for me learn git and it's working 😞😞. I got some concepts like commiting changes and some other.
But, will anyone please tell me tutorial about learning git. And its working.
Btw I am CS student right now and really wanted to learn about git and it's importantance.9
So i'm working on this course assignment program and i'm trying to remove object from a 2d array and I couldn't figure it out how to do it without messing the array indexes. Wen I was using aarrayList I could just do arrayName.remove(number), but not with the regular array. Than I had an enlightment moment.
Why not just move the object off the screen?1
So this student right here, not only he was so nice to give me 2 options on what to pick out from test, but both low in value :D The task was to write out all the dividers of a set number :D this guy, made it as simple for him as possible :D2
rent / question (there is a question at the end and I'd appreciate your opinion)
8 months ago, I agreed to help a not too distant relative of mine to do his master thesis at the company where I work. He was supposed to build something really MVP, but useful for us and I'd help him get some scientific questions out of it, and provide him with (computing) resources to test his theories / implementations under simulated and much heavier load.
Since then, he didn't get done anything even remotely useful, always just stuck on very rudimentary issues, claimed things are almost ready, I wrote a quick smoke test to prove that the whole application blows up when you touch it, in short - a disaster and went over to radio silence.
In the meanwhile, we didn't need it anymore, so 1.5 months ago, I got in touch with him again, with an even more technical proposal, something, at least I'd think, that's even cooler to do. He asked me some question about hypothetical load, the system should be able to handle eventually, to come up with alternative implementations to compare them against each other. He said that his exam period is going to be over soon and he'll get back to me with some initial version.
2 weeks ago, I got back in touch with him, trying to urge him, to get finally started and get something done. If he'd actually sit down and do it during the holidays as a "full time job", he'd be probably done in 2 weeks. Last week, he came back to me and said he has an initial PR ready to review.
I was excited about it, but basically froze when I realized what he did. He deleted all his previous work - some infrastructure stuff which took us basically 3 months of back and forth to get running - and as far as I could see, all the new code were only auto generated clients based on a swagger specification. In short - I could do it in less then an hour. If you really have no idea what you're doing, it might take you half a day, but definitely nowhere near to a week.
His brother, which a good friend of mine, thinks I'm being too hard on him. His argument was, that it's too hard, and he has to do it in C#, but he only knows Java (I gave him access to some of our repositories to copy paste code together, he didn't need to invent anything. I also prefer C# but wrote my master thesis in Java) Personally, I'm just pissed because he promises stuff that he never does. I totally understand him - I was like that as a student as well, I guess karma is a ... but still, he's wasting my time.
Right now I'm thinking how to get out of this, without having even more time wasted. I doubt he'd ever deliver anything useful. He got plenty of input from me about what he could consider for his scientific question, how to measure performance, ... He can keep his credentials to access our test environment with the test data, but I won't give him access to any additional computing resources, to compare how his solutions might scale on our company's cost. (mainly it's not the money, but I'd have to provide that stuff, and probably help him set it up)
does it sound like a fair deal (saying, I'm done with you. You can finish your topic on your own, but don't expect any help from me)? or am I being a dick about it and too demanding?1
Should i do hadoop big data course ? I am thinking of this summer to do on simplilearn. I am third year student undergraduate in IT. I am java guy and good in RDBMS.. Should i learn then?2
I just applied to some student jobs (like cashier) and didn't even get an interview oO my life sucks, I'm going to delete myself :o1
Hi there everyone am Shreyas a CS student. Am a C# guy and learn the parts of language every day (recently learning Asp.net) and having a lot of intrest, knowledge and passion in buildling stuff in it with WPF, Xamarin. And also i do practice a lot in it everyday.
But recently I am getting a lot more intrest in UI/UX designing. Am finding myself watching more UI/UX designing (mostly in Adobe Xd and illustrator) videos on YT (dansky YouTube channel specifically) rather than C# which I used to watch in early days.
So what is your suggestion on it? Should I learn the UI/UX designing basics. Will it help me in future, if I become a developer on building applications for mobile and desktop in C#?
Am pretty confused with it? Should I learn it or not?2
That moment when you want some reading material on a subject and the books are 35 bucks. Any got tips for good reading material for a broke student?8
Debate with fellow student:
Should the square within a PowerPoint slide (dedicated for a second projector video stream) be black or white?
"Of course it has to be white, otherwise we won't see the video stream!"
The worst type of exam question in University for me:
Using first-order logic (predicate logic) express the following statements:
(i) Every student except Tom is smiling.
(ii) Everyone likes everyone who doesn't like himself.
(i) ∀x(student(x)→(¬Tom(x) <-> smiling(x)))
Thoughts on significance of Software Requirement Specification and Software Design Specification document in the industry?
Coming from a student struggling to understand the importance of it.
Being at college and unemployed
Things are going great, learned much and thinking I'm ready to work.
WebDev, minimum wage, still at college but not learning so much because of time.
Quit because I didn't receive two paychecks out of three months I worked there.
working with banks, java but only old editions 6 and down, mostly maintaining lots of old code. Three months contract is expiring, I have student debt and really don't want to work here but it seems to me I don't have a different option5
Im a student, and im learning coding, but analisys too( diagrams, use cases, documentation).
I really love code, but not feel the same about the other part.
Do you feel the same ?2
The one thing I really don't like is when they give me buggy code to work on. I spend more time debugging than actually writing new stuff. Sometimes the bugs are hard to find to like someone writing a 500 line function that could have been separated into other tasks. This is what sucks about being a student, other students are simply unaware of their horrible code and yet they ask "Why'd I get a C in the final?"
The worst part is being assigned a random partner for a project and the person is absolutely clueless about the class.
Just things I've had to deal with and I'm sure most of us have as well1
Am a Computer Science student. And learned C, C++ and Java. And right now learning C# through online tutorials and practicing side by side.
So my question is, should I learn bash shell or not? Is it worth learning it? Or should I learn powershell scripting? Or should I don't learn either of them.6
Can anyone suggest a thesis topic for me? I'm an undergraduate computer science student by the way.3
So i'm currently an IGCSE student, and i learn programming as a hobby, but this year is the graduation year and i took all the subjects necessary for The Faculty of Computer Science, but i wanted some advice from the people working in this field, so is it a great job with good income? and are thier many job oppurtinities out there on the market? And finally which is better Software engineering or CS?
Thanks for your time.5
Do you think you should apply for a job you are probably not ready for to get work experience or wait till you get experience with learning?
Notes (small company, I am a student)
Please help me with this7
I am CS student. So I just wanted to ask are there any tips or suggestions you would like to give me about skill sets or anything other to get place in MNC after my engineering is completed?
Right now my skill includes C, C++ and C#. 🙂🙂. And also know JAVA but not much. 😬3
Hey guys ! I need your help for something.
I'm a student in Belgium that will become self-employed as frontend+backend developer (during my free time)
In Belgium and as student I will have no charge.
What would be a good rate per hour ? Some already suggest me 30-40€/h but as I'm free of charge others suggest 25€/h
What do you think ?4
Just a student of Computer engineering.
Need help deciding the final year project.
Going to the job fair as a junior and seeing the requirements makes me want to quit. How am I supposed to to get enough experience as a student?! Time to get back to my personal projects!4
A quick question, is the numbers in the degree matters for working as dev? Student here. Big thanks ✌️7
by eradicating every form of competition or anything which is close to making any student feel inferior
I wish I could invite the me of 3-4 years ago to my room and prove him wrong.
Basically, the me of 3-4 years ago thought: "What do I need a home PC for? I got a laptop."; hell, he always forgot to put the laptop with the plural 's', because understandably, for his study life, he took low-cost PCs that would only last like one year.
But my boy, laptops are cool and all, but have you ever experienced the complete comfort of a proper desktop? In addition to the bonuses of a home PC in terms of performance, it leaves a much better space for work than just a portable terminal in front of you and pretty up close to compose. The accessories didn't even cost me much. And it feels great to have everything in its own, right place: the screen at the bottom, the phone standing on its holder, the earphones on your head, your left hand on a mat with papers potentially on it, your right hand on the mouse, which is on the mousepad and also on that mousepad, that character you adore so much, when both said hands are not on the keyboard, beneath the whole table, or on it when no papers are on the way.
Seriously, that pleasure I longed for was something you could have started, me of 3-4 years ago, right when I began with my studies.
But I have no rancor over you, I'm still onto my studies, so this is still something I can take profit of, during my student life, thankfully ;)
I'll just take note at your stead, of not being too stubborn over things that can do oneself a greater good, objectively. :)4
Desperately need advice from devs in India...
asking this here since really stressed about this and don't know who to ask to...
I am an engineering student from Bangalore, India from a basically no name college...
I have been coding for 2 years now, web stuff, primarily rails and js...
i have worked with handful of startups, done internships, and am working on my own projects which i will launch soon...
Lately my college has made it a mission to make my life hell even though i always perform well academically...it has gotten to a point where I am not able to work or learn anymore...
I wanted to ask what consequence my career will face if I drop out ?
I believe lack of a graduation degree will make me not eligible for many jobs...please suggest what I should do...6
Trying to become a software developer by teaching myself with tutorials, books, etc. and then realizing that I need an idea for a project to practice my skills. I don't have a good grasp of software architecture and the tutorials on the webs on this topic suck.
As mentioned in my profile, still a student. Plus I'm having so much difficulty deciding one area gor development. :/
Hi everyone am a CS student.
Along with C/C++ taught in colleges, Am learning C# side by side and getting used to it.
So am learning it from internet PSA. I already did one C# course on udemy. And also practices a lot about the language features.
As it's very big language am really confuse what should I know more about that language. I mean which C#.NET classes are important in industry and which not and other stuff too.
So am just wanting answer from a specifically a C# developer which works in industry and uses it everyday.2
Anyone else get the mind of a angsty college student without coffee?
I just had trouble describing asynchronous encryption
I know its not the place to ask for assistance. however, I am a student asking for help trying to figure out a dissertation project.
interested in all suggestions
Hello to everyone in this platform. I am a college student who wants to become a software developer from the first class of the high school. Unfortunately, in my country it isn't possible that both study to university exam and learn other stuff(Actually you can if you sleep 6 hours and stay on home every time without a social life). Now I'm glad that I have entered one of the best college in my country, but the information I learn in the college is not enough for me. Because of that I am looking for a good algorithms book that teaches the logic of common algorithms(like binary search, DFS, BFS and the things like that). I know I can learn them on the internet ofc, but currently I have to spend a lot of time on computer so I want to a book version of these information. Sorry for this long post. All book recommendations are appreciated :)1
Hello , I am Student 1st year , studing Programming.
My dream is to be the most famous programmer in the world.I am hard worker.
I am learning C#.
The problem is that I cant find to much space to work with other here in my city , and learning my self it doesnt make sense to me.
What would you suggest to me ?4
A student and teacher .
Teacher - you should learn to code python 🖥️
Student - the only python he knows 🐍
Indian schools 😂1
As some of you might know I am Computer science student and does a lot of C# practice and development in my free time!
But recently I am in love with python and wanted to learn it ( side by side with C#). So does anyone have any suggestions of books to learn python from basic?4
Not coding rant
I forgot my student ID today and was trying to enter a building.
Called my friend to swipe me in
Security: nah you can't do that
Me: why, I'm a student here
Security: Weill that student id only shows that he is a student
Me: I can provide you my student ID number and state ID
Security: no, either you go get a new student ID now, or you can't enter the building
Wtf? I've asked other people to swipe me in before and the security didn't day shit
I went home and filed a report against that guy
Straight up abusing his power7
Student programmer's uncertainity principle
It is impossible to do programming and prepare for college exam simultaneously(Especially the day before exam)
Thief: money of your life?
Student: money? life? Dude, im an engineering student. 🤣
Thief: sorry bro!
teacher: You know CP?
teacher: fix the bugs
student: (after checking all code) I know computer programming, not competitive
