Search - "subject"
Our programming teacher had a surgery on his left eye and will not be able to do the lessons with us. Guess what the subject of the email he sent us was.
"I can't C#."
He made a pun about his fucking health status, alright then.14
During the second year of my graduation we had a subject called C & Data Structures. This asshole of a teacher (who taught programming by just reading the programs out of the textbook ) came to somehow know that I had learnt C & was good at it (some student had gossiped about me in front of him). Everyday when he came in for the lecture he used to call my name & say - "You think you are very smart please come in front & teach C to everyone" for no apparent reason. (I had never showed him that I was good in programming). For almost complete semester I kept silence & he used to laugh & keep me standing for the complete lecture. But one day I was particularly not in a very good mood & he came & said the same thing. I went & taught for the whole lecture & the whole class applauded at the end. The look on his face was priceless 🤣7
Fell asleep on my first day in my very first project. When I woke up, I saw an email from our manager with the subject "No sleeping please.". No email body. 😂9
Got an email from client with subject starting with "VERY URGENT", the email mentioned how urgent it is to fix this issue multiple times, it implied that they couldn't do anything else while this issue existed, but they were very light on details. So sparse on them that I couldn't reproduce the issue. 15 minutes after the original email I write a reply asking for some clarifications.
They proceed not to reply for 4 days. Fix took 5 minutes after they explained the problem better.
Apparently it wasn't so urgent after all.6
Google searching should be a school subject. There is so much people that dont know how to use it13
I might have to say goodbye to all the tech I have now because my parents are pissed off about me not wanting to talk everything about the university.
Everything... Just taken away if I don't tell them exact fucking grades in every subject until tomorrow.
How about killing me now, huh? At least I would fucking have an ending to my suffering under them.87
Have to share some pillow talk with the wife last night - somehow got onto the subject of washing machines. Mentioned that most washing machines run on something like Java, she disagreed and said they run on buttons. BUTTONS!!
Told her I would be putting this on devrant.7
So I've started my Python adventure and made an app that lets me know what's my next lesson in school. It shows lesson, subject and time.9
Just got this email with no body, and a vague subject / title in all caps.
... you ask questions on stackoverflow don't you13
Putting your support subject or content either in uppercase letters or telling US that your matter/ticket has 'the utmost priority' doesn't mean anything to us. You'll just have to keep in line.
WE decide the priorities. Also, calling us when we haven't looked into your very fucking high priority ticket yet for about 5 FUCKING minutes is NOT going to help YOU.
- One of the Linux Support Engineers.10
Awesome teacher number two: another Linux teacher!
Didn't have many classes from him but damn he could interact with the students!
He was very open (it just autocorrected that to porn O.o) minded, very passionate about Linux and new shitloads about security. You'd expect him to be like 50 as for his knowledge amounts but he was around 27 I think.
He could go into discussions with students on the windows vs Linux subject, made it look like they were winning and then completely burn them in just a few sentences.
I think he liked me a lot because we would talk all kinds of Linux stuff.
He'd also help people with windows sometimes but windows servers where a very fucking no-go for him.
Man, I miss that guy 😞11
After giving them a 30min talk about the importance of proper commit hygiene and the dos and donts of git, I proceed to commit changes of different nature in 4 files as a single commit named "did stuff".
I lost all authority on the subject forever.10
To all dutch people on here, the new surveillance law I ranted about a month or something ago has passed if my source is correct.
Passed as in, the government has voted in favor.
Time to start encrypting/vpn'ing/torring and securing your computers!
Feel free to use this rant's comment section as Q/A and tips section for this subject as well :)41
It's quite awesome how some people can make you realize how much you actually know about some stuff and how skilled you are on a certain subject.
Shoutout to @404response for making me realize that i actually know quite some stuff about security/privacy and also a shoutout to @devisionbyzero for making me realize that I'm actually quite good with linux/linux servers :).
One of my friends told me that my web address should be like a girl's skirt, long enough to cover the subject and short enough to create interest.4
(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 me6

Subject: FW: Twilio integration
Date: 20th June
PractiseSafeHex I need you to fill in the dev completion dates for the Twilio task for the mobile team by EOD today. Backend have already supplied theres. Otherwise I will be forced to mark the task as “At Risk”. Please let me know if there is an issue or you are blocked.
—- Begin Forwarded Mail ——
Subject: Twilio integration
Date: 18th June
Documenting today’s meeting minutes. Backend confirmed they will handle the Twilio integration from their side entirely. There will be no mobile work required for this task.
So this is what I received from a very bad recruiter.
I don't even know why I covered the details, this deserves to be public xD
Also, consider that this message came with <no subject>..6
We are using this book for a subject
"Open Source Technologies"
No wonder how my classmates are gonna learn Android programming from this book.
I'm grateful to myself that I learned it online.8
The sad story of a coders life in india..
So apparently my friends don't understand the basic concept of "enjoying" coding. This comes from a 1st yr undergrad. Everyone here view coding as some subject or some college course that is done just for the sake of grades. When they get free time, they waste it away smoking up at some filthy old building mocking us coders. Sadly I share a room with such idiots. The problem is that coding is something we love, something we do because our hearts yearn for it, because we are addicted. And because of my useless roommates, I'm losing out on my friggin friends. I swear we coders are always looked down upon way too much. We aren't usual nerds, we just don't believe in wasting our time on tinder or Facebook or smoking pot.11
Seriously? Isn't that pretty obvious from the context that slavery is no subject here?
But it is pretty ironic they merged that into master...20
With regards to what @trogus writes here: https://www.devrant.io/rants/520228
I have now purchased double monitors for $8.99. Until @trogus and @dfox figures out how to monetize this wonderful place, may I suggest that everyone buys something for their avatar? The margin on those should be close to 100%.
On the subject of how much I would pay for using devRant, on one hand I use it more than Spotify which would mean I should happily pay $10/month, on the other hand I shouldn't be using devRant so much since my time is limited and devRant isn't exactly a productivity tool.
I'd personally be OK with every 10th or 20th rant being an ad though for instance. As long as they don't appear in comments.
I hope we all find a way to sustain this great place.13
I had a recruiter contact me today, calling me Andrew in the process. Believe it or not my name isn't Andrew, and the email address they sent it to was me@MYFULLNAME.com, so they should be able to get my name right.
I responded to them pointing that out and advising they never contact me again. (In a somewhat sassy way).
In a well crafted apology I was informed that they had a great track record and that mistakes happen. Here's the email's subject line:
RE: Hi.. opportunity in New Haven, CT (Downtown- next to train station)- RUDE DO NOT CONTACT EVER AGAIN
I responded more kindly that I appreciated the apology but the subject line confirmed my position of "not interested."
This was followed up by them trying to "recall" the email, and resend it... Like I didn't notice the insult in the subject line of your apology...
Nicely done, nicely done.10
Introduce a subject called "proper use of search engines" and make every kid attend it regularly, just like gym classes.5
The NOS (Dutch national news agency/company) was criticized recently because the cookie/tracking consent thing was 'too much/inconvenient'.
Seriously, their consent thing exists out of three yes-no buttons (one for each subject and the subjects have a very short but understandable description) which you can click or tap (it works perfectly on mobile) within a fucking second.
It's the best fucking consent thing I've seen and now they're saying it's inconvenient.
Inconvenient my ass, other companies should take it as example! (https://nos.nl)15
Funny story from yesterday at work.
Useful to know for later on, the last sentence of the 'convo' is a sentence from a Dutch movie, it basically translates to 'youre fired, vagina' (we swear with that here but it sounds better in Dutch tbh)
Somehow got to the subject of motorbike lessons:
Colleague (M): so just imagine the motorbike instructor arriving for the first lesson and me doing a wheelie right away 😆
Colleague (B): and then his boss coming around at the same time and seeing that happening
(one of our most silent but always on point colleagues) Colleague (c): je bent ontslagen, kut!
Aaaaaand everyone fucking lost it 😂7
Email subject: Urgent need for developers!
Email body: We found you in our database, and think you're a match for this position! Requires 5+ years of C++ experience
Apparently C# == C++. Good luck finding an appropriate candidate, buddy. I was tempted to send them an email pointing out their error, but I'm not too good with "pointers"5
If you know haskell, you know the pain of learning Monads, functors and applicatives, especially when coming from imperative background.
But this guy filtered out all the witchfuckery out of this seemingly complex subject. And there are pictures.
When you receive a "bug report" from one of the clients:
Subject: contact form
Message: It doesn't work1
Seriously ? Thanks for nothing ? Is this an appropriate subject,given that you are sending Thanksgiving greetings to your users ? Honestly I feel attacked. I'll probably unsubscribe and block them.15
"Descriptions are like skirts, they should be long enough to cover the subject, but short enough to keep things interesting." - Gidsy.com12
I absolutely hate the way we are taught programming in Indian colleges.
FML #1: I'm pursuing a UG CS course, and this semester, I only had one subject of Computers, that too only 1 credit. The rest with all electronics.
FML #2: In that 1 credit course, we had to make a C++ project which had "data handling". No one cares if you build something cool or not, just that a project should have "extensive use" of data handling.
FML #3: Source code had to be >= 1000 lines. This is the only place where ADDING MORE LINES OF CODES THAN REDUCING IT is appreciated. Had to stuff my code with all kinds of comments and violating the basic principle of DRY.
So, yeah, we're fucked big time. 😥14
Having the cocky junior dev that hasn't yet hit puberty squeak over my shoulder about as high of level concepts as he can discuss without spanning a general knowledge over anything. Front end, he has his 2 cents. Backend, his 2 cents. Any given subject that he knows nothing of, he has a very very general comment to provide. And on top of it he wears a fcn suit and tie to work every day at a start up tech company of 7 people. I'm sorry I forgot what the hell this post was suppose to be about but he completely fucks up every last bit of my productivity24
Yesterday we started coding with my eldest son, with some board game (based in scratch), and it was so fucking amazing! I'm partial, but he's a fucking code genius!!!
In the game, the child "code" some functionality with cards and the adult (me) compute them 'doing the actions'.
I'm so fucking proud!!! Well, I'm always proud of my children, and there the English language doesn't convey very well my thinking as the verb to be doesn't differentiate the intrinsic state of a subject and a passing state:
SOY TAN ORGULLOSO DE MIS HIJOS!11
This week i have been trying out the programming subject.
So we should program a mathematical function which would figure out pi from a circle.
When he tried to run it, it didn't run
Teacher: Hmm, it doesn't work. Let me try to take a look in the code.
Me: (Slowly realising he is using internet explorer.)
God damnit. Amazing, just amazing.1
As a software engineer, I decided to participate in a hardware Hackathon. I went in not knowing much about the subject, but by the end of the weekend, we made a fully functioning (somewhat janky) jacket that could roll up or roll down its own sleeves depending on what your body temperature was (inspired by Back to the Future 2). We also created a remote, so you could control the length of the sleeves as well. It was the most off-the-wall, ballin project I've ever been a part of.10
Amateur astronomy, even if I'm no longer doing astrophotography. This is an old photo, I made this in 2010 (it's the Andromeda galaxy, an easy subject).12
>> this === rant
At beginning of this year, I only knew HTML, JS, and CSS so I just applied for offers like "Jr Apprentice Dev in Front-End"
In a interview call, the woman told me that they will send me a test asking about my JS and HTML5 knowledge.
When I look in my inbox, the mail subject says "Back-end Test".
Then I call the woman:
Me: "Hello, I have received the test mail, but maybe it's wrong. I applied for a Front-End position and the test is about backend! "
She: "Do you have skills in JS and HTML5?"
Me: "Yes!, and CSS3"
She: "Well, the test is about that. JS, jQuery, and HTML5"
Me: "Sorry, that languages are Front-End. In the subject say 'Back-End' and Back-End is PHP, SQL, MySQL, Java, .Net... I don't know nothing about that. I only know HTML, JS, CSS."
She: "It's the same"
Me: "I sorry but it's not the same. Fron-End is client-side, what users sees. Animation, colors, FXs, buttons, forms... And Back-End is server-side, what users doesn't see."
She: "Well, JS, HTML, and CSS is backend for us. We call it that way too"
Me: "Sorry but that is wrong. I invite you to read some basic info. Now I am confused"
Of course that I am not confused. That idi0t was wrong.
Perhaps recruiters should take some info about areas where they are recruiting... (:T)3
Yesterday a colleague of mine told me that another colleague has done this in his web application for a subject:
For checking user and password, he did not query a database, but instead he checked information in a HIDDEN DIV in the html page.
Reason: "this way I don't lose my precious time".
I think of that and I'd like to punch him. People like him are the reason websites in Italy suck and my University web infrastructure sucks (he worked as intern on that).
I just realized that my fucking boss managed to put a back end dev to do front end and a front end dev to make an api.
So me and the front end dev are constantly asking each other stuff instead of doing the fucking job properly because it isn't the subject that we like/spend our free time learning.
Although I understand that its good to have some "full stack" knowledge I also understand that my ui/ux is gonna suck while his api is gonna suck :)5
Made a bunch of bad decisions.
This one is the absolute worst.
Studying biology as a main subject intstead of computer science in high school.
Indian people in here would know, studying PCMB is no less than being a dare devil. 🤣
Why did I do that ?
I didn't want to get into medicine.
I just wanted to study it for fun.
And thought, I'll be able to study all of computer science in college 😶.
Its totally useless now.
How much of biology do I remember now ?
Studying CS would have been much more beneficial for me.14
just found out that one of my users replies to himself with blank email with a subject "checked" every time he checks his emails... and then he ticks it as "completed"... He has created chains with hundreds of replies long crashing his brand new xps15 every time he clicks on the chain...2
last semester i was working as assistant professor teaching Basic OOP Subject. and my girl happens to be enlisted as my student. One day she was late for my class and get in without a permission. so i ask her
Me : Why don't you knock the door?
Her : Why should i ?
Me : did i give you my permission ?
Her : Public class doesn't need permission. our class is not Private.
oh my god i'm so in love with her2
For God's sake! Coding standards should be a subject in university, where the students are thought the right way to name variables, indenting the code properly and many more things!8
Advice for all future developers: for every project you work on - write down the time you've spent on it, which technologies (eg. Languages, stack, DBMS.. ) you used and what the subject of the project was. You'll likely gonna need it for future job applications and it's hard to come up with every detail after 6 years if you haven't written it down...3
A friend asks me for help with one of her subjects in college (She is taking a degree on Communication sciences):
Her: "Hey! Can you help me with Java next semester? I am going to have a subject about that..."
Me: "Java in your degree? Strange... You sure it's Java?"
Her: "Yes, I'm sure! I've talked to some people of my degree and they said it is Java. Can you help me?"
Me: "Okay! Do you have any documentation so that I can check what you are going to learn about Java?"
*She sends a PDF*
Okay, so I'm in rage mode right now :/
Last week a client of mine absolutely insisted on removing the "irritating delete popups" as they phrased it, against my advice.
In short, when deleting a record, I had a sexy "swal" confirmation appear (see https://limonte.github.io/sweetaler...) with some key data from the record, that prompted the user to confirm the action.
The client has now emailed me with the subject "URGENT, please read ASAP!!!". The email says his staff has deleted lots of records incorrectly.
*** face palm ***.
This is EXACTLY why we include delete confirmation prompts.
As I've used Laravel with soft deletes (luckily for my client) it shouldn't be a huge issue to reverse around 400 deleted records. However, I'm charging my client for half a days work out of principal.
Perfect example of my client not listening to me :(6
My most successful project was the uni project I had to do and it made me pass the subject hahaha, not that that would count as a real project :/
Okay this was rather depressing...
I should finally start doing something on my own2
Recruiters trying to grab my attention by using my name in the subject line - only they forgot to change it from the previous candidate. Ouch!5
The endorphins released when you suddenly get your head around a difficult programming subject, I just had mine with a cryptography concept.
Nopes. Not worth it. I still drink to get a lil tipsy and enjoy beer and liquor.
But after you land in the hospital due to alcohol poisoning and you beg the nurse to kill you to stop the suffering you NEVER want to be drunk again.
Damn near 8 years sober and without a hangover. When I was in the hospital I vow to never be put in that position.
Nope nope nope nope and more nope.
Being high af feels fucked up as well. Don't know why people would subject themselves to all this bullshit.19
Went to the lego shop and now I have to produce the Voltron robots, one of the Ninjago dragons and 2 Ninjago vehicles...
My son is the worst client I have ever had!!!!!! He doesn't see why it can't be done in one night, its the only subject he wants to talk about... He even said the "If you really tried you could do it"...11
Php array methods, all of them, or should i say hash methods
They should fix them. I mean they should fix placing of callback and subject params, because.
Or they should make array a object like js4
I can never get over this 😥
We were taught 5-6 subjects of electrical or mechanical engineering in out freshman year 😃 and our course is called "computer science and engineering".
We had ONE subject in the whole fucking year that was related to the course,called "introduction to computer"!!!!
The second semester of the freshman year had no subject remotely close to computers, but yeah we learnt about thermodynamics and beams and Trusses and motors and welding 😒.
They should have also told us what we are supposed to do with that knowledge 😒.
What's the point!!!!
Will is make us a mechanical engineer 😒?
Also have you forgotten we are here to learn about computers and not about the tension in the rope of the pulley 😒?
Also we have no subjects,in the 4 year course about actual development 😃 not even old school web development.
Fucking hate this shit20
Mechanical Engineer friend took Machine Learning as an elective subject in college thinking that it had something to do with the Physical machines.
His reaction during the class was priceless.3
The recent post on being obsessive with "CTRL+S" reminded me...
Be careful if the file was shared with you via Dropbox.
I was doing this with an excel doc called "services by client" once and got this email...
Subject: "services by client updated...." :-O
Every time you hit save, I get a popup notification on my screen and its’ been going like once a second for an hour
Are you MANIC SAVING that excel sheet!??? Are you dealing from some past trauma of losing a document that you’ve worked really hard on!!!???
Lol … maybe copy the file outside of that folder a few minutes so I can continue my nap without this little “ding” going off :-P
...all I had to say was WHO LEAVES DROPBOX POPUP NOTIFICATIONS ON anyway. Or mute your computer, lolz?1
Time to vent some steam about the most lazy and annoying student I've had to work with... EVER!
For an important group assignment me, a female fellow student, and 'the sloth' were assigned to work together on researching how IT is making the world greener. As most of you can already imagine, this isn't the most exiting subject for the average software dev student, but it's something we had to finish and wanted to finish ASAP, to move on with the other courses.
The annoyance started early on when we had to decide on a specific subject/branch to research. The sloth gave absolutely NO feedback when we were proposing subjects, and was more interested in playing games on his phone than participating.
When we managed to pick a subject, we decided to split up the main research question in 3 sub-questions we could each answer and merge together, with the promise to keep regular contact between us three... oh were we wrong.
Every week when asking the sloth about his progress, he answered that it was all fine but the documents were on his home pc and not his laptop, so he couldn't show it. We decided to trust him as long as he put the documents online this week. He never did.
2 weeks before the deadline we were getting pissed and decided to confront him and the teacher about the situation, and only then he decided to put 'something' online, that he probably made in 15 minutes that very afternoon, that made absolutely NO sense whatsoever, filled with spelling errors and no sources documented anywhere.
We. Were. FURIOUS!!
At that moment we decided to throw him out completely, and just do the research on our own. While we spent several nights trying to completely redo the research he screwed up, we and my fellow female student finally managed to sucesfully pass the course, and the sloth still hasn't passed that course to this day!2
Apparently some fucking moron bot has started sending spam messages to random people using my email address in the 'from' field.
Subject: I want to feel the passion with you.
I know because I just received a Delivery Status Notification containing the full spam email.
Fuck you spammers and scammers. Wish you a horrible and slow death in a mincer.16
In the wk83 rants I noticed that users mostly upvote posts that say "I have no friends" instead of posts that actually talk about the week subject.
Are you envious or what?7
*Test about non-IT subject tomorrow*
Classmates: *study for the test*
Me: *spends day programming*3
While interviewing someone for a DevOps position, he admits having only started on this subject a year ago. This is no big deal.
When asked how he keeps up-to-date, he answered "I haven't for the last ten months".
Well, that was not the answer that I expected...5
I got a bug report with a typo in it. The subject read "...action X takes long time thank expected."
The thank is supposed to be "than".
I chuckled and immediately created a snapshot that shows the result of the action and the success message says, "Action successful, thank you for your patience."
I shared it with my team but no one even acknowledged it. 😞2
Today's full day meeting accomplishments:
- start 9:00 am
- updated intellij idea
- updated fedora
- checked out servers to see if everything was OK
- lunch break
- people agreed that "we are just gonna do it and plan later"
- presented my status on the actual meeting subject
- me and the consultant realised we are really fucked :)
- meeting ended 5:30 pm
Best experience: starting uni, finally wanting to study and teachers who (mostly) understand their subject
Worst experience: starting uni, teachers who don't understand their subject or refuse to explain why something is used.
I might be in a love-hate relation with my uni.3
Subject of message: "Important: New feature for all 000webhost users." Thanks, 000webhost, an hour of downtime a day was exactly the feature I wanted to be implemented. P.S. if you have OCD, don't look at how many unread messages I have10
"Yeah, I got your e-mail, I see the subject. Oh no, dude, it says urgent so it went straight to the URGENT queue. Yeah? Ah. Sure, I'll get to it as soon as I get through the ASAP, NOW and YESTERDAY queues. Well, if you wanted me to read it right away you should've say there's NO HURRY - I read only one no-hurry e-mail a day but there's currently 0 tasks on that queue."
Best way to learn a subject/skill is to build projects. How about building your own computer from scratch to learn how computers work.
https://eater.net/8bit/ this tutorial teaches you to build an 8-bit computer from scratch 😍
When the subject said : "it's called the 20 minutes challenge : write a program that evaluates a mathematic expression with parenthesis"
And it took me 12 hours. Now, I know how!2
Today our school arranged a presentation about privacy on the internet. The guy who did the presentation featured DuckDuckGo, which I already use. He said Google collects data, which can be unsafe and DuckDuckGo doesn't. No new information really, but here it comes.
While discussing a different topic, someone asked a question, and the guy answered it. Then he said: "If you want more information on this, you should Google it."
Like dude, how serious do you take this subject? He even said he has a Facebook account and that he rarely changes his passwords himself.8
A teacher asked for my help in some machine learning project, I told her I don't have a background in ML.
She was working on an application that classified research papers according to the subject.
I said, seems like a basic NER project, but maybe I'm wrong I haven't worked on any ML projects before. But I do have experience with web, let me know if you need help in that.
She says, ML is also web, it's just like semantic web.12
My non-programmer friend (a mechanical engineer) has better pay doing what she loves.
I have lower pay, clocking more hours, and stress, doing a subject that I don't like.
Should I change profession?
When will medium and its coding tutorials die out already? Why the hell are every fucking post of this plattform so cringy af, like tf why you start your tutorial with a fucking irrelevant meme you dumb asshole? Your code snippet is mostly garbage and you aint explain shit; I am not even sure if the code is yours. Go eat a dick and learn the subject properly before even start to teach people online.6
I attempted to correct a higher up to show off my *amazing knowledge* on the subject matter (aka 5 seconds of googling)
Turns out what the higher up was talking about was actually correct, but was so vaguely known that it took deep diving into the docs to even find. What I was talking about was similar and technically also correct, but not relevant in the situation.
I was still pretty new at this point too. Luckily it was online so I just shamefully deleted my comment, but they probably saw it anyway.
Tough being a newbie trying to impress people! Doesn't help being helplessly awkward as well2
Today I wrote a mail to the company to record two weeks of illness. Now, the mail started off being about my holidays in a few weeks, but I decided to write the illness mail first. Stupid me forgot to change the subject from "holidays" to "illness"... I'm so fucked. Wish me luck!2
I am beginning to hate the relationship between email and my clients. I never thought it would come to the point where email is the worst communication platform I've ever used because some of my clients simply don't know how to use it properly.
I have one client who never uses the subject header in his emails. This makes conversational threads very difficult to follow, and I can't just scan the inbox I have for him. I have to actually do searches on my emails just to find recent conversations.
For some reason nobody knows how to start a new email thread. I have multiple clients that will just take the last email that I sent them, regardless of what it's about, and start a new conversation completely unrelated to the other email by hitting"reply". I end up with email threads that are 60 to 100 emails long and contain many different subjects, which again makes it hard to find anything. Never mind that they've usually put two or three important attachments, or username password combinations, or other valuable information in there amongst all the noise.
Worst of all, I have a few clients and co-workers who insist on starting a new email thread whenever anything about a particular issue comes up. This means that just today I have five separate email threads about the same goddamn issue from the same damn person. Am I supposed to respond to each thread with the same damned information? One of these people is supposed to be both a media consultant and an SEO expert and really should know better. Also, if you do actually send me an email with a subject like "the robot.txt error", please don't give me one sentence about that and five paragraphs about what color you'd like the background to be. That's ridiculous. How the hell am I supposed to find that later? Especially since we already discussed this in the other email that sitting in my inbox.
I swear I am setting up a bug tracking system simply so that my clients can log in and leave me bug reports, and feature requests, and will stop filling up my poor email boxes with what amounts to piles and piles threads that I have to sort through.
For a person who suffers with a form of ADD this is extremely frustrating. Why is it so difficult for my colleagues and clients to write good emails with good subject lines, and reply to the right damn emails?
Am I just being too anal, or does this bother others as well?16

Why do people say that? Obviously you may not know 100% of what you can do with a computer, but NO ONE does! I get that some people know slightly more than others, but it all comes down to how much time you put into learning it!
And how do you even respond to that? "I know, I'm dumb." You can't ignore it or affirm it, you just have to awkwardly acknowledge and then change the subject. Ugh...4
3/16: I need a service account for $domain. I've opened a ticket with Subject: please create $account name for $domain and Description: please create $account for $Domain. I need this by 3/23.
3/30: yes, hi, is this for $domain or $differentdomain.
ESET Antivirus is a strange animal. On one hand, it seems reasonably well written, because unlike Norton or F-Secure, it doesn't subject your computer to death by constant disk access and 100% CPU load for 10 minutes when you start it.
On the other hand, when I clicked the link in the mail about renewing licenses and filled out the form, I was not redirected to a page where I could enter credit cart details.
Instead, I got message that some representative would get back to me in 1-2 work days. Eh, what? It's a digital product for f***'s sake. Now, I suppose they'll send me a hand written letter (written using a quill, no doubt), delivered by a bloke riding a horse and wearing a tricorn.
Well, at least ESET virus definition updates are pushed on the internet, and not sent out on 5.25" diskettes.4
I just watched this documentary called "take your pills" and seeing the weird programmer they interviewed I got curious about how many DevRanters use Addy as a coding booster? Would you consider it just a normal performance enhancer like caffeine? Have you tried it?
I've only noticed coffee heads like myself here and I was wondering if some of the people that aren't are against the use of Adderall too.
I'd love to hear some thoughts on the subject.40
How to get me to never respond to your email: make the subject line say "Salesforce ninjaneer wanted!!!"
First of all I don't do salesforce and second ninjaneer is not a word. I hate when people say code ninja or code warrior or any of those other crap phrases. I'm a software developer. Respect that or suck it.9
This is a legit question from an exam I just took:
What is CMR?
- A subject we did not discuss.
- Short for Customer Management of Relationships.
- Do you mean CRM?
This is a fucking joke.2
1. My DataStructure teacher taught us the whole subject without a single code snippet.
2. I once had to sit and code in front of the teacher to prove that I did write the code this fast.
3. The first lab in CS bachelor's started with "This is monitor, mouse and cpu. The button in cpu switches it on". Some people still stood clueless there.
Passive aggressive deed of the day: Whenever i am replying to a mail with no subject, i start with "sorry i missed your mail as it went to my spam folder, maybe because it didnt have a subject".
So we're looking for a new developer, my boss sends me an email with a subject "Intresting CV". It was for a office clerk who altered a Wordpress website for the company they use to work for
My college teaches us perl now😑
Being in a college whose curriculum is 10 years old is fucking sick.
I mean really 10 fuckin years old.. Dude this is computer science field, shit changes so fast here, new languages, new standards, new frameworks and these guys don't give shit about that.
Wasting so much of my time attending these shit classes because i have to maintain 75% attendance in every subject or else i wont be allowed to write an exam.
You know your idea was shit when....
You see it on devrant as the subject of someone's all caps, swear word filled rant...1
> you are a teacher at a university
> you are supposed to teach advanced things to students
> your slides are screenshots of the book that you told us to get
> you sit at the desk and just read the slides
> you don't even try to win student's attention
> students prefer not to come to your lectures
> you wonder why a lot of people fail your subject
Caching is a subject, misunderstood by a lot of developers. Optimize then cache, don't cache to optimize.2
I would say that I have good parents and my dad also supports what I do (most of the time) but could my mother please calm down and let me do what I enjoy doing while not yelling at me to learn Latin saying that it is 'the most important subject'.1
I got an email from a seemingly random gmail address with 'essential!' written in the title.
Turns out that this was my university trying to contact me. They expect me to send my full name, university and other personal information directly over a Google survey in an email from an address I don't recognise with an unprofessional subject.
Safe to say, I didn't fill that one in.4
Currently i am working as a student at a teaching chair for embedded systems, so my boss is the professor there and the subject of this weeks story 😄
He is very passionate about his field and keeps close contact to the students and their representatives.
He invests a lot of resources into getting students to learn and make projects and pays us to supervise a hands on course for students to build IoT projects.
As employees we get to work on interesting projects and he listens to us and our concerns if we feel a project is having certain problems.1
The subject you fuckin teach is networks, not fuckin C programming.
Why the hell am i supposed to make your multithreaded client/server in fuckin C.
That feeling of regret after you get a not-so-good grade in a class because you were too advanced in the subject matter. "I already know java I don't need to go to class *miss surprise quiz and class work*" <- me in csc 101 and 102 (retook both). Moral of the story: don't learn too fast on your own if you're in school if you get bored really easily.3
Around a week ago I asked my mentor(lecturers friendly sidekick buddy 'o pal) if in iOS dev(the very next subject) I could virtualize, rent in cloud or run a hackintosh instead of buying a Mac. My mentor sounded enthusiastic and asked the lecturer of the next subject, who promptly said no, he did not support or recommend students who tried any of these approaches because in the past he had encountered students who have run into performance issues and we're unable to compile some things. Most likely those students were unable to setup GPU passthrough and whatnot.
However this is the exact point of a VM. It's exactly the same as if you had a real Mac. I believe this is just them being lazy. Tbh, this is an IT course they should be writing guides on how to do virtualisation, not preventing it.
Looks like I'm headed to the Apple store :(4
PM: You've heard of <thing> before right?
Me: I know the name of it
PM: Perfect, your the subject matter expert now.
So I'm taking embedded systems subject in my masters course. They have mixed this subject's content with electrical engineering and I'm a computer science graduate. Everything was perfect until I reached to GPIO board.
Wtf is this shit?
Why it has so many holes and what are they for?
What I'm supposed to do with it?
What is ground? Transistor?
Why I'm connecting to two pins only instead of the 4 pins of a button?
Thanks to pi4j i think i will pass the subject!2
When your professor invented the subject and you don't understand his lecture so you go online and search for the term and all you found is his slides from other universities when he was a professor over there.4
I have a serious question.
I particularly address Italian ranters.
It's about time to decide what faculty/"subject" I should go to, and I'm uncertain between "Informatics" and "Informatic Engineering".
Does someone know what the differences between the two are, and, given that I want to do as much programming (and so practical stuff instead of theorical stuff) as possible, which of these two faculties should suit me best?
If you're not from Italy, but from other countries, of course that shouldn't stop you from posting a response, if you want to.
How do Universities work there?
Are they like ours, in Italy, or does it work differently?
Thanks for your patience. 💙9
I have a presentation which takes 10 min and must be about anything relative to computer .
Since the other students are very stupid , I might not choose a very advanced topic ( after thinking about encryption i realized this)
So i need help!
What is your recommandation for the subject?20
Client just asked why no progress has been made this week and refuses to accept it is a result of them not answering my emails or providing content. I made a DevRant while I wait for a response!
I guess it wasn't as URGENT as the subject line suggested...2
My employer forced me to do video courses and pass quizzes/tests. Questions were vague, not directly related to the video and it took me over a week to get past them.
I think i should mention, there was a month for this, but I missed the email and learned about this courses by being warned that deadline is near.
On the second day I made a userscript that stores given answers and mark the correct ones in the next attempts, so that brute-forcing would require less copy/paste.
Topics covered by the courses are a nice subject for another rant.
We often rant about people who think that because we can program we can do everything with computers.
But I have to admit that when I get asked what I do I often only say that I program or do something with computers. I usually don't get more specific because it's so hard to explain to someone who doesn't know anything about the subject that I would have to explain the basics each time. And I'm just to lazy for that.
It's nice when people ask me how it is going at work but I probably won't say anything more than ok or fine because my day was fucked up by a memory alignment bug in the chainloader and I now don't have the patience to explain what these both things are and why they fuck up my day.1
Note to self:
Fifty shades of gray is not about CSS or any other subject you care about. Delete mental association so as not to react like Pavlov's dog every time you hear/see title mentioned in mass media.
My coworker just replied to a customer’s out of office email. 😂
“Thank you for letting us know that you will be out of the office” 🤣
The subject of the email is “Re: Automatic reply: Data Export - Items Sold” 🤣🤣🤣
F**k the education system. We have a project for each programming subject to which I am committed. Adding upon that, a startup company shows up from nowhere, with their mainstream project which is to be completed by students and in return we get a useless certificate for completing their modules. And the worst part is that they have kept it compulsory.
I don't know who is going to benefit more, the college, the students or the company.2
Gotta hand it to a faculty at my college. She is the best teacher, ever! Period.
She is pretty lenient, understanding, and always supports us and helps us.
She taught us Data Structures and the only thing that was bad was us students not giving as much effort as she gave to teach us.
She was so well that it always felt that we weren’t doing well enough.
Her subject was the only one in which every student passed!!
And still now, although she no longer teaches us, which hopefully changes next semester, I still love to go to talk to her about various things I do in programming and computers overall.
M just gonna say it...
U. R. The. Best.!!!! 😎☺️😊8
This lady hotdesking near me harps on about her amazing Meetup that she's organized. She believes she can be an authority on a highly technical subject without knowing how to force quit an app on her Mac.
I dropped out of university because of Maths (I'm not really that bad at maths, but that thematic wasn't really mine... But whatever) and obviously had no job nor any graduation (except my school thingy) and wasn't able to study something computer science related, because that's how it goes in Germany... (If you can't pass a certain subject, you will get blocked for the studies that involve that subject for 2 years or sth... Because I failed in Maths meant that I'm fucked)
So I started an apprenticeship to atleast do something and get that degree.
In my new company I really felt (and sometime feel it nowadays) like I'm the fifth wheel on the car and don't really achieve anything (but i really do).
That really fuckin sucks and hinders the fun that I could have in my job :/6
!rant but seeking für help
So my boss came to me yesterday and asked me if I could do some penetration / security testing for a web application our company made.
Though I have some really basic knock edge of the subject (E.g SQLInjection) I was wondering if you know any good website / udemy course or whatever that can get me started.
I don't mind if there will be a certificate at the end but it is not necessary.
Colleague: Hey mate you're a subscriber??
Me: No I'm an observable... and a Subject to your subscription....
All this started around an year back. In college we had this subject of web programming where we were given a mini project to do. The topics were given related to college stuff. Mine was an attendance system. Made a simple website using all i knew about bootstrap, jquery, etc since i had some previous experience with web. The professor liked it and asked me to further improve it so that it can actually be implemented. This was six months back.
Since that day, to this date, that guy asks me to add a new feature or just modify something every two weeks. These guys just want free work and think everyone is just free. Neither does he help a bit... just demands... god knows when this forever loop would end! It has become frustrating now...it just feels as though why i showed my skills in the first place 😐😖5
Had a teacher in high school who ordered us to learn MS Access, even tho most of us already knew MySQL... It was to learn about relations and the likes...
We spend way to long on that subject, because most of really didn't find the Access interface intuitive and she had to walk from table to table helping...
The only two finished the task where those who say screw it and used MySQL 😅
So I was building a WPF standalone software for a subject in uni, and our lecturer (the PhD holder guy) told me to make the GUI responsive in my WPF application, and gave me a long lecture about how everyone uses mobile nowadays.1
There is a book that is supposed to be the best book on its subject... but I just have to say - This book is not a good book. It's a bad book. That's right. I know the author well, - but it's terrible and I just need to tell someone. Thank you for listening.8
They promised us flying cars and we got 140 character text messages.
Yes, it's lazy having Peter Thiel write my rant---and he didn't put enough fucks in it (he's three short)---but it expresses what I feel on the subject.
I keep hearing how amazing AI yet I'm still stacking the sodding dishwasher and other such life-diminishing fuckery.1
So lately I am learning about APIs and REST/ful architecture (I'm a plain beginner). I must say it's very interesting.
I find this website very very helpful as a practical implementation of the theory I've been consuming. I'd truly appreciate any recommendation on the subject.
I remembered one time my freakin prof in programming taugh us how to understand computer language, that time my worst enemy is ASSEMBLY, for some reasons my teacher doesn't know how to code in assembly like wtf?
On our last grading period he asked us to create a program using mov and shift and the deadline is set tomorrow after he announced it.
I remember my code in that freaking subject
HAHAHAHA after that I was scolded big time 😂
we had that one teacher in the apprenticeship in the first year who taught us C. There were some people who already knew the language but most of us didn't and we had this one horrible test where we had to do some for and while loops with stars... Like generating something like this:
so most of rhat stuff we never learnt and he couldn't explain to us why our code wasn't correct and we all ended up getting really bad grades in that subject for something really basic -_- just because he couldn't explain it to us and test things we never had
I overslept and missed my first lecture which was mathematical Statistics (I fucking hate that subject), because I was exhausted. I've been pumping caffeine and energy into my body non stop for the past 5 days, on top of that I'm battling with insomnia. But anyway...
I wake up just in time for my Programming lecture, I walked and ran 1.7 km in 17 mins. I get to the lecture, panting, out of breath, about to faint and what do you know.... There'sno lecture.😐😑😤.2
I spend an embarrassingly large amount of time carefully constructing email subject lines.4
👦🏻 : I Enter office.

Tomorrow is my exam... 😭😭😭😭
If someone can tell, it’ll b extremely helpful 😨9
What's a good book to read about hacking and/or cyber security? Doesn't have to necessarily a how-to guide, rather, just something to read on the subject.5
The other day we were discussing a study that says Python is the best language to start learning code. What's your opinion on the subject?24
It's definitely been awhile! i apologise for my absence. I'm actually finally in my last few weeks of university and doing my best to finish my internship and my final subject i've chosen (AI) :'D, I'd like to wish everyone a very happy new year and wish everyone the absolute best this new year has to bring in health, success, happiness and joy!
I once failed a subject during my masters (complex analytics and measure theory).
Next year I decided to give it everything I've got. I had grown to love it and could solve most problems they threw at me. Hand written an 80 pages long "book" distilled from all the notes, proofs and visualisations from all the lectures that year.
I only exerted this effort (even though I could've just "passed" this subject) because the lecturer was so damn enthusiastic about maths. Even though he wasn't a CS teacher this course was my best experience of a teacher at uni. He loved the beauty of the maths he was teaching and managed to make me love it too.
He was a maths geek and when I aced my final he told me he actually writes code too. He showed me some simulations he wrote while he worked on some theoretical nuclear physics stuff, because that's what he was into. Really cool guy. I wish more CS lecturers were as good teachers.1
After upgrading to Ubuntu 18.04 my Thunderbird is presenting me the new font it has to render emojis in full glory (or not) when it displays Twitter summary emails which contain emojis from user messages and names.
See the full featured list in the attachment.
At work, all errors within the site are logged into our database with a subject and error column. SQL errors are logged in the subject field while the traceback is put in the error column. However, a lot of SQL errors are really large and exceed the max character width of the subject field, causing yet another SQL error, and the cycle repeats. This recursive error has been the bane of my existence, because 1) it times my local dev instance out and 2) the error doesn't end up getting logged because the server both freezes and the error can't be inserted in the database. You can't even begin to imagine how many hours I've wasted trying to find what line I changed cause total and utter failure with absolutely 0 error logging. Next thing on my todo list is to fix this fucking issue since the head dev refuses to get it done.2
Relatively new to programming. I have worked with c++ for about 7 months, worked with c# in unity to make games, created lots of different scripts and other programs using bash, python, racket and Java for class.
I am looking to become a video game developer, I work with unity and do lots of coding challenges on hackerrank.com and some other stuff. But I am wondering what I should do to really improve and am wondering what some of the vets out there would tell me to do, what kinds of projects to create, how to get better at programming as and whole andnd knowing more about the subject in general. Any help is appreciated, I'm looking to start 2017 on the right track to success!12
12:55 AM, Subject gets and decides to look at crude oil chart.
1:05 AM, At it.
1:10 AM, Subject decides to check the temperature, using laptop screen in dark.
1:12 AM, Does a wild aerobic move to save flying laptop.
1:13 AM, Finds out that screen is gone.
1:23 AM, Orders new screen.
1:26 AM, Types this rant.
Ok GCSE finals are coming up and I take ICT. literally it's harder to fail than pass this subject. But some how half the class is failing it. One of the topics that a lot of the class are struggling with is web development. Honestly all you have to do is add 2 images and some text and you have 10 marks it's stupidly easy. So at the end of the class the teacher handed me some notes on web development that he thought might come in handy. Knowing me I just chucked it in my bag never to be seen again mainly because I already know a lot about web development and a lot of the time he's asking me why his code isn't working and I'm there mumbling "you forgot a semi colon" or something like that. So when I got home I decided to take a look at these notes and honestly this made my day3
Story of coding affecting my dating?
Well whenever I start a new language, I always find myself having difficulties with time and date structure-
Wait, that's not the subject? ... oh the other kind of "date". Well, not finding difficulties for something I'm not looking forward to lol
TEAR ME A NEW ONE PLEASE
chatted with a company about a front end position, they replied that they are interested in me and want me to complete a task. The email subject was "about an internship at a *company_name*"
they later quickly sent me another email saying to to ignore the subject about the internship, and sent more details about the task.
I completed the task and sent it to them.
They replied today with an email stating that I'm too weak for an internship and that I should improve myself and reapply in the future.
It's a little bit of a low blow, I thought we were talking about a full-time position yet you are saying that I'm too weak for an internship? WTF
to say I'm pissed is a little bit of an understatement.
Heres the link to the repo I sent them.
They'r task was to mark up a sketch file they sent me, there was no mention to make it interactive.They told me this doesn't need to be responsive. I Think I used too many spans, inline-blocks, and a few wrong floats with images instead of divs with background image set as the image. Tear me a new one and tell me all my mistakes, I want to know what's so bad in this.13
I'm studying for a CEH certification so I can enter a computer security competition that my school is holding, and I have to cram the whole subject in my head.
Before anyone asks why, I have a great interest in the subject and its fun to learn the problem is the amount I have to learn in such little time
My teacher also wanted me to enter so I could go up against the guy who almost placed in nationals last year, and he thinks I can do it, many people do. looking at it realistically if I crammed it all and reviewed I could place in regionals which is the goal.
Wish me luck if you read all of that!..2
Too much math ? Seriously ? Had you made the effort to atleast 'look' at them, you would see how simple they are. And just because I use the word 'equation' does not automatically make it a Volterra Integral Equation.
Could've discussed the subject at hand. But no, let's bring on the judgement. Who wants to ever discuss the subject ?4
24 hours while a "pool" in my school (pool is a two-weeks fast formation where you can work 24h/24 to understand how a programming language works)
It was a C++ pool with a garbage subject meant to reproduce the functioning of a factory with... Factories.
Unit tests were use to mark us, so you know the struggle6
Wrote the following comment and deleted because I don't wanna give negative thoughts to OP on Monday 🤔 so I just decided to share this as a rant. 😳
Thought I would just drop by to drool at the comments because I saw "artificial intelligence" and stuffs on the rant. Turn out it is a chatbot to reply when account goes offline. No offense, but I facepalm-ed myself.
I know chatbot falls under AI subject, but an auto reply isn't.

When someone that has had less experience manages to get their head around a complicated subject before me and races before me in knowledge and experience, that has had me doubt my knowledge and experience and led to impostor syndrom. But this is way back in highschool, now I just appriciate people getting before me in a subject because then I can get help from them regarding that subject
My exact reaction when ,I was researching on legacy programming language and their copyrights for my intellectual property rights subject.
Python was released before Java did.
But the popularity Java claimed was faster than python
Python first release date 20 Feb 1991
Java first release date 23 Jan 1996
Could anyone explain y python gained is momentum later!?2
Enterprise that "doesn't have training budget".
Meeting #1: We need to cut the budget and can't guarantee anyone will still have their job next fiscal.
Meeting #2: Hey you all need to read this book. It's mandatory and we will have a follow up meeting to talk about it.
All contractors: okay, but just so you know reading this book is billable and is subject to overtime pay.
Director:👍👍Here you go 💰💰💰
All of the FTEs that are salaried: 😶2
I have a course at my university about personal data and it feels more than a law course than a computer science one. I asked the teacher why do we have to be taught that subject and how would we be able to use what we learn in real life and she got triggered, telling me that with just by coding I won’t achieve anything and i have to learn more topics and if I didn’t want to be taught this subject why did i choose the university.
I just made a question you fuckin butthurt, chill the fuck out.3
😔this weekend should be fun, I... I need to... well you see... I need to create a woocommerce site despite my better judgments and opinions on the subject.
God, if you are listening.. well reading, please have mercy on my soul.6
I was thinking recently about clickbait and facebooks attempt to limit it, if you were charged with implementing some form of clickbait stopper, how would you do it?
I was thinking some kind of regex match for patterns like "this [subject] just" and "you won't believe [shit goes here]".
I'd also invest heavily in companies that build robots specifically designed to kick people in the nuts, because we need more of those to solve this issue4
More tales from University Tech Support:
Haven't been able to get ahold of this staff member for weeks to do required maintenance. Emails, VMs, surprise office visits, she's never anywhere to be found.
Finally my boss emails her with the subject line "Free Money", and gives her some sass in the email about calling IT back.
Yeah, she responded in minutes...2
I'm a beginner on programming, in my early second year, i got Advance Programming subject
Anyone can tell me how to set the level to 'easy'?7
At uni we have one study subject called OSs and we are doing stuff in win server 2016 and win10 half the semester and half semester in linux
Before those classes
Me: windows is not that bad guys why you so mean?
Also me: oh... i get it now. Fuck windows2
My best experience is essentially being taught the creativity and adventure aspect of development.
My first second year programming lecturer (left early on for reasons) knew that our curriculum was stupidly easy and instead of focusing on it, he tried to give us a sense of wonder and exploration about the subject so that we can grow. It was well needed advice, seeing as my class fears programming because they never practice it.
IT sucked when he had to move on, but he managed to get the message across. I don't think I'd be as passionate about development this year if he wasn't around. It's not always just stringing instructions together for money. It's also exploring and creativity to find your way and build something awesome.
Wow that's a new one: a recruiter sent me a "React quizz to check my knowledge on the subject".
Next step would be to send a quizz where the good answers ARE the good answers, because even with the official documentation on the other screen, I get 13/20, which curiously matches with what everyone else got as a result.
I had to choose a subject for a math project. So I selected encryption (elliptic curve). I decided to make an interactive demo website. First time working with node, websockets, large numbers and latex. Most fun project I ever did. I am still proud on the result and how fast I did it (~3 weeks)
I am in an apprenticeship as a software developer so you might think I would have lots of stories to tell in wk73 but you could not be more wrong! Our school teachers don't care about us or the thing they teach!
BUT in the first year, our company payed to send all of their IT trainees to a special training facility and the coaches there where amazing!!!👍🏼
For every IT related subject there was a coach! And they were fucking experts!
Let me tell you how this "training" worked:
1. Basic introduction to a certain subject
2. Some basic tasks
2.1 Extended tasks for those who want to dig into it
3. Search some other students to team up
4. Define project
5. Discuss the project plan with a coach.
6. Realize project
6.1 - Question rises -
6.2 Discuss question with coach
6.3 Coach prepares prepares presentation on the questions subject
6.4 Coach sends out invitation to everyone
6.5 LEARN AND PROFIT
7. Awesome product is finished
8. Present project to other students
The awesome part about this is that the coaches pushed us to our limits (so we would keep improving) but they would assist with every problem you faced.
They where relatively young and the spirit within the teams were amazing!
Because not all IT trainees have this kind of training the professional school is pretty boring ever since...
But I silently thank them for that training after every exam at school.
We got drunk with the most geek friends, and now the subject is based on the pigeonhole principle, one of us drank at least one extra bottle :/
(this is the first time I've ever seen this principle being used properly 😂)
Proper English sentence structure, the kind that accurately conveys what you mean to ask me to do for you, requires a subject and a predicate. To hearken back to “Schoolhouse Rock”, if Mr. Morton is the subject of my sentence, then what the predicate says, he does. Mr. Morton walks. Mr. Morton talks. Etc.
Just tossing out random nouns and verbs in random order in an email will not help me to help you.
I'm in a senior level game design course, where me and two others have to create an actual game. I picked my teammates out bc I thought they've already taken classes in the subject(as they are both seniors and I'm a sophomore taking this as a final class for my minor). Turns out, they haven't taken any courses in game design and know nothing about the basics of making a game... FML, good thing they can code I guess lol.😅😓2
It's my first rant. So please ++1 me.
Now my rant:
In this semester I had a subject about system architecture. In this class, we must learn Java script, C# (and ASP.NET framework ), PHP (and Zend Framework 2), but in the classes is taught only UML and patterns. In the moodle of the subject we don't have any information about any of the languages and if we ask the teachers they don't know anything.
So we are all fucked10
a professor at the uni is recording his lectures to be extra nice for some of us students who might be unable to come or want to repeat some parts for a better understanding of the subject *cough*.
but instead of sharing it via a streaming platform (whichever that might be in the end), he uses the internal net of the uni. i know there might be some copyright issues with material he uses in his lectures, but still.
what he expects us to do is to download files of around 12GB in size per lecture that we want to rewatch.
It took me literally 2 months or less to surpass any and all my teachers on the subject of Unity3D.
Granted they didn't know shit about it, but that also ment that i had roughly 10 more months of them not being able to teach me jack shit.
I have self learned a lot in that time, but imagine what a decently knowledgeable teacher could have made of that process. I would have known so much more by now!1
4am writing an assignment about the ethics of anonymity tools (TOR, VPNs, brown bags to put on your head)
I love the subject – I picked it – but these written assignments for peripheral classes are the most soul sucking part of studying software engineering2
Just to move away from this horrific subject of CoC and and phobic and non phobic people... I thought i had no issue earlier with this matter but to be honest after this i see here and everywhere else i must admit now i am phobic, because i feel they are imposing their restrictions on my lifestyle which has never offended any defferent person. To me it was all about the character and respect but now i feel its different.
Moving on ...
Opinions on this anyone
I usually start watching tutorials or reading a book on the subject I'd like to learn. Then, I try to do something on my own. When I'm confident enough in my skills I begin to apply what I studied on actual work projects (when feasible).
Two years ago, i made my graduation and started my training as system administrator. Today I got an email in my inbox; subject: like to help us?
My former IT teacher / admin asked me if I would like to create the new IT infratructure for the new school building. I never thought, that I ever go happily back to school %)1
When I started uni and I took my first programming subject (Data Structures) I hated it as much as I could. My teacher was a complete @$$hole, he wasn't good at teaching, and most people were failing the subject. When I finished that semester I swore I would never be a programmer...
11 years later and I have a Master's in IT and have been working as a Software Engineer for 6+ years. #life
I wish I had a better experience learning the basics1
Have you ever had a subject in university that is very interesting but the lecturer has such a way of explaining things that you begin to wonder that he is a robot trying to imitate humans? Really nice guy in person though.1
With what subject you shouldn't send job offers to software developers :
"A unique and exciting opportunity for a genuine GEEK!!"1
Next motherfucker named Chad that sends me an email with a RE: subject line for recruiting is going to be thrown from a helicopter screaming.
If your name is Chad that's okay, we know you didn't choose your name, but if you're a recruiter named Chad and you are trying to slide into my emails, get fucked.2
Always double check the code you're sending to the teacher after finishing a school project.
I once sent them an old version of the code that had useless comments and debug messages everywhere. Some of them "politely" pointed out the fact that I really hated the subject, that it was pointless and that the assignment was way overcomplicated for first year students.1
Lol. Had an exam in college a few weeks ago which involved designing a website on expression web. The Dr responsible for the subject dropped my file and gave me a 0 as a grade and said : "well it's not my fault I lost your file." I laughed so hard XD. Still has a 0 though Lmao.
Dijkstra 1988: "Unfathomed misunderstanding is further revealed by the term 'software maintenance', as a result of which many people continue to believe that programs —and even programming languages themselves— are subject to wear and tear. Your car needs maintenance too, doesn't it?"
npm 2018: "Naaaah!"
Reading. Textbooks mostly. There's nothing I love more in life than learning and there is just so much to learn.
I tend to get stuck on one particular subject at a time. At the minute it's quantum mechanics. Previously it's been philosophy (specifically the philosophy of artificial intelligence), politics and biomechanics.
You can find good books on any subject and the fact I can just spend hours combing through and learning is just mesmerising to me.2
Does anyone do psychedelics? Do you find it hurts your programming performance, increases it, or just general thoughts on the subject?10
I started early making money with programming, but currently I'm still studying to get into embedded development. My dad is very jealous of me being a programmer. He's biting his ass for not learning programming himself in the early years of c64 and so. He was just fascinated by using a PC, his friends wrote little games. He mainly believes, that he would earn a lot more. (Haha, …)
My mom tho, she doesn't ask about my subject or what I do or will do in future. I think, she doesn't really care but knows I'm doing computer stuff.
Gets an email from some random thing from the government
Clicks the unsubscribe button which redirects me to send a email with the subject "UNSUBSCRIBE email@example.com"
I think to myself that it's a rather strange way to do it but I assume it's automated...
10 minutes later, 1 new email:
"Thank you got getting in touch with us, blah blah. we'll get back to you as soon as possible - automated email"
"You'll be doing X, and be sure to test everything you do. But we don't do unit testing. They aren't paying us for that."
- PM to intern coming via college (it's like a forced internship that counts as another subject for the degree).1
I start reading about it, from their website, forums, blogs, etc.
Next thing I usually do is to take a look at stuff made of that tech and mess around to see what it looks like.
Then I pick a book about the subject, set up the basics and start from the very beginning, even if the prologue starts with "programming is..."
At some point I start to connect concepts previously seen in the first step with the chapter I'm in, or even identify elements discovered in the second step.
Works for me.
When the hardest question on you computer systems test is : draw a house in paint and paint it using only the brush :/.
So so happy i am done with this subject after this semester.3
What is that one technology/niche that YOU feel will have a major impact in the future?
Would be really interesting to know how different/similar our thoughts are on this subject.10
I really like coding for scientific purposes. It unites my big passions (natural sciences/engineering/coding). And I like the feeling of empowering someone to do research. BUT BESIDES DEALING WITH DUMB FEATURE REQUESTS, THERE IS NO WORSE PAIN THAN HEARING PHD CANDIDATES FUCKING SAY RETARDED STUFF. HOW DID YOU EVEN WON THE SCHOLARSHIP FOR THE PHD YOU DENSE SON OF A BITCH (NICE JOB ACADEMIC ENVIRONMENT BTW). YOU LACK KNOWLEDGE OF HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL EVEN ON YOUR OWN SUBJECT. THE BEST RESEARCH YOU CAN PROVIDE TO THIS WORLD IS THE FLUID DYNAMICS OF AIR WHILE YOU JUMP OFF A SKYSCRAPER MOTHERFUCKER.
Sometimes i feel bored of developing but i wan't to, i don't know how to explain this feeling. Do you guys sometimes feel the same ? Like i have a lot of things to do, i would like to learn new things but when i launch Unity for example i feel lazy, bored of it.
I'm stressing about my further carier, will i feel the same and so, stop developing as a job ?
I don't know if i'm the right post subject, and sorry for my english btw.2
To find my next subject I wanna learn about, I usually look at job postings, and find the thing I don't know that most posting have in common. Kinda gives me an idea what technologies companies are using, and what might be smart to learn
"Oh, you only know 10% of how these algorithms work? You're now the subject matter expert, so you get to write the code"
Just had the most enraging JS test today.
I didn't know where the teacher wanted us to go with the subject, so I asked him a few questions. He straight up laughed at me and said "I didn't write that test, so I can't you help you".
Turns out he just copy-pasted last year's test, made by another teacher.
Mine and @jacoKotze's final exams for the year (maybe for a while too) are finally starting today. Up first: programming! The most ~complicated~ subject according to our classmates. (Did you notice the sarcasm?)
C# events and delegates, file streams, and LINQ are the "new" content next to the tests where we did exception handling and inheritance.5
Who, more than I, totally HATE emoji?
lol I hate emoji after it caused so much problems with Microsoft Outlook and email backups from said program combined with emoji in subjects.
Wrote an subject filter in exim4 (took 3 days to debug and get working propely) that totally eradicate anything that isnt ISO-8859-1 from the subject line, then converts the rest to UTF-8 (because said IMAP client isnt following standards).
it also converts ISO-8859-1 characters in subjects to UTF-8 even if the original subject is declared to be UTF-8, because obviously some software (especially newsletter software) are transmitting ISO-8859-1 subjects that are declared to be in UTF-8 (but the opposite isn't true).
And also cuts subject to 100 chars, because too long subjects are a problem too. Same with date headers, I replace them with the server date/time because some software are sending Date: 1970 Jan 01 00:00:00, because some of these erronous headers are put by some mailing list software, aswell as causing problem in OEM clients like Samsung Mail.
Problem solved, all IMAP clients happy on internal network.7
In a class right now. The rants are more interesting than what the professor is teaching!
How our professors teach:
Step 1: Open up a PDF of the subject book.
Step 2: Read everything line-by-line.
Step 3: "Refer the internet".
Yeah, because I don't have the book to read the shit you're teaching.1
So, our lab professor in university for data structures was evaluating my friend's group assignment next to me and my colleague.
Professor: So, what does this method do?
Friend: I feel it would be best to explain our structure first and then how our methods work.
P: No, no. It's okay, I'm seeing it here in my laptop. *Looking at their report which included nothing about the structure of the assignment since she asked specifically only to place the methods and their complexity analysis due to not having time to look and evaluate a full report for each group*
F: Okay, *proceeds to explain*.
P: Okay, and why is your code commented?
F: Because it's good practice and we learned in subject x last semester.
P: Impossible! I teach that subject and I did not teach that in my classes.
F: Okay, but our professor did.
P: *Says nothing*.
They got a 3.25/5 as a grade for it and got really pissed off. I mean, they spent a lot of time making the assignment's structure perfect, optimizing their code and the professor did not care for the structure, just the methods, on the data structures subject.
FYI, they are workaholic, dedicate a lot of time improving their skills and their normal grades are usually >= 4.25.3
I remember my college days, i had a subject about OOP. Damn, the professor only talked about how to make a f*cking TextBox and Buttons in VB.NET and we finished the course without hearing anything about OOP.2
Was rushed to write a crappy massmailing for super urgent newsletter, had to be finished in 20 minutes. Last 5 minutes i had to rewrite half of it. Told them its rushed, testet and crappy.
Mailed the stuff anyway. Every Email got the same dynamic string in subject.
Looked at code, was setting the subject 2 lines above the loop.
Sorry guys, dont rush me next time2
We here in India are going through a nightmare. We have our CS syllabus from 1990s, we still write lab records, and solve 10 pineapples problem for placement training. Nobody really bothers about actual skill or knowledge, are like sheep behind feed. Passion is taken for granted and overruled by the “experts”.
A good education in CS starts from the hunger to solve problems that would matter to people. Future of CS education is in online courses that give out ideas to generate more ideas and inspire programming not as a subject but as a basic need of the hour. People should love the fact that CS is queer in many ways but is very powerful. Basics are important but the education must hold on to what is currently happening in the world.
World will be doomed when we start making students study the same thing what we did, except it is called Math. A subject has to be dynamic. If anybody agrees what I say, spread it so that world will understand what learning means...
One of ur staff writes email body as subject and the body is always empty or her signature. Give a reason why I shouldn't kill myself.1
A meeting between me, the CEO and the owner of a company. The subject: they asking me about my friend who decided to dropped their shitty company.1
It's been a while since I started my first python course on Udemy.
I feel the urge to rant because as I'm leaning more and more and getting increasingly more interested in the subject, the instructor's tone is getting sloppier and sloppier and the quality of the videos is increasingly worse. Really, the videos are so blurred that I cannot read what the guy writes, so I have to turn the captions on hoping that he says out loud everything he types.
Soo I got my first email from a recruiter.. Subject: "Your Github profile " + accountname (of an account that i renamed 5 months ago which now gives a 404 btw). I'm 15 and my github profile doesnt have the "avaible for hive" Option checked. why exactly do you want to hire me again?2
It's 2016 and I have to learn SQLJ to pass a subject.
Yes, I'm unfortunately a part of the "great" Indian education system.6
Today my teacher said to not even touch our PC's because we can destroy them... It's not like we're already 18 and he's supposed to teach us how to use and repair them because the school subject is called "exploitation of computer technology devices". Also he said we can use books while exams so I wasted my time on learning where is every option in kmail, hopefully there was more questions about terminal and FTP... (I wanted to pass this exam with my own knowledge to learn anything and there's my 100%). This guy is so annoying :/4
When your non-dev colleagues report bugs that aren't explained and they write the whole issue into the subject of an email.
Lately I've started caring more about code standards and best practices, but as I am self taught I have never really learned them.. could anybody here be as helpful as to offer some insight as to how I could get a nice intro to the subject?
My languages of focus at the moment: PHP, Java (android)2
iPhones have never been more unlockable, as literally a picture of someone on your phone can be used to unlock their phone.
On the subject, I would also like to know what the point of an unlock is? If a criminal has my phone, they are stealing it, period. If a good Samaritan has it and wants to identify the owner, they can't because there is a lock.
This means that the only potential way that I am ever getting it is that there is no lock and a good person found it.3
Some context: our subject thesis is: "Benchmarking of IoT OS". We decided to narrow down the subject to a benchmarking of real-time OS. Examples of RTOS: Contiki, RIOT, ...
As there are no such papers on the subject out there, we are looking for some people/communities that could help us answer our questions.
Thank you for your time!1
It's amazing how subjects can fly under radar and I don't even know about them until I actively search and study it. I am actually digging technology, once something becomes an interest, it gets added to my news feeds, my profile, etc automatically so i keep updated on the subject without having to constantly actively search for it outside of the first time.
My current interest is space weather and how it affects humans. There is a lot of fluff and conspiracies in the subject, but there are also legitimate scientific papers as well.
Now i know about CME's, Solar flares, etc, and it's all pushed to me daily from different legitimate sources in my feed so i don't have to go look for it.
Screw privacy, would much rather have up-to-date info automatically than be worried about what companies know about me. It's all about convenience.5
Hate it when I'm sincerely interested in a subject, proceed to ask someone who knows about it expecting to get an interesting conversation, a recommendation where to learn more o something, and all I get is a fucking generic answer which seems to be taken from a FAQ, and even worst, that isn't even related to what I asked 😑
Definition of database table in my DBMS book :
Table is a rectangular array 😩😂😂😂
I am like why am I even studying this subject1
When the analyst (or client) says he couldn't answer your questions because he's working remote... and sending an email on the next day saying that he couldn't find someone who could answer it subject-specific.2
I think Google's spam filter got hacked... Got 2 spam emails with those fancy printed subject texts... In the past 1hr2
"The whole essence of good drawing—and of good thinking, perhaps—is to work a subject down to the simplest form possible and still have it believable for what it is meant to be." - Chuck Jones
Never went to Uni.
I am currently a College student (UK).
I've also got a part time job as a Web Developer.
I've got this job because I was able to prove myself.
Nothing I've learned at the College is useful for my job.
I've seen a lot of fresh graduates getting jobs at my company. They think they know their shit - that is until they get smashed by reality.
From what I've seen the CS degree is not worth a penny. I might still go to Uni but I'd rather choose a different subject.5
I'd still be doing research on the brain- I guess I'd become more of a biologist. If AI is good enough to replace devs, they would probably use me as a test subject though.
If you ever thought that life is targeting you specifically as the subject of all the bad shit that happens, just remember that it wouldn't be fair otherwise.
So apparently, some guys emailed me saying "we found your details on Github as someone with Salesforce knowledge..."
Except I don't know a fuck about Salesforce except that it's called as such and pays well, and I have never used it in my life, let alone have a repo up. Can somebody please explain to me how these idiots think they can trick us developers out of all people with these bullshit enails?
I actually got a bit hopeful when I saw the subject "Hi, we found your details on Github"; then that flew out the window as soon as I opened it 😭😭😭
Me and this friend of mine were usually average in college subjects. We were not really bad at them, we just never got any exceptional marks in those subjects.
So when our 4th sem result came, a third friend of us got really good marks in some subject , like in 90s, and we again had marks around 70s.
At that time we both knew that we know that subject way more than this topper guy in terms of knowledge, but he just crammed everything about that subject word to word and got the better marks.
We thus believed that marks doesn't matter, its the knowledge and we both know its stupid to cram useless things which could easily be referred from documentations or internet when required.
But last sem, something different happens. looks like mah boy was a little envious on the inside, he scored a whopping 88%, just near to that topper friend of ours . i was happy watching his happiness , and he was saying that "dude this sem, i will even try to beat that guy in marks."
Even though none of them are class toppers, but they are somehow running in the race to be one. I on the other hand is still firm on the belief of not cramming stupid shit just to get a status of some 'topper'.
even though cramming subject knowledge is not a total waste, i still believe we should only understand what we need to understand, like learning the moral from a war story, not cramming the actual war dates.
Some might find this quality of mine to be the reason of me being 'average', but i feel totally fine with it. I have trained myself to be able to lookup for a particular resource online faster than they are able to lookup for that resource crammed in their brain memory, and i wonder if i should feel guilty about it. Yet the society will always see me as an 'average' guy and them as a 'winner'1
Keeping up with #100DaysOfCode is a real challenge for college students. Every 15days you'll be giving some exam of a subject which you will probably never need in life.
Dude. I asked my question like 6 months ago. I got an upvote and two answers. I accepted the one which helped me the most and upvoted it myself.
How about you fuck off with your edit suggestions on a buried subject?
Doing my first game on Unity, and configuring a Sybase PHP driver for a college project, it was a soft skill subject were we should learn by ourselves and there was no classes, and it exists almost no info about Sybase in web, was a headache
In my university there was a programming teacher who taught the basics "algorithms and data structures". This was the first subject about programming ever.
He mostly just showed us the idea behind each and sometimes showed a slide of an algorithm or data structure in C. He was also supposed to carry out lab classes where he would teach us the basics of C.
He thought that programming could not be taught in class but only self learned... so he didn't do a single computer lab class the entire year. The rate of students who passed his subject the first time was low. We ended up talking to the dean and the teacher was given an assistant for the lab classes the next year. Fun right?1
Sometimes you don't need to think of an interesting or funny rant because life does it itself!
Several years ago I did my Bachelor's degree in Business Informatics which was not Informatics at all - regret at that time that I had choosen the subject.
After that started working for HP in a business/ marketing role which was quite nice but missing any technics.
So I internally applied for a dev role that was quite purely based on Linux knowledge that I did not have. Seems I convinced with my will to learn something new every day. And I did!
After two years in that role I now have my Linux certificate (CompTia Linux+), did a great job (according to my boss) and I am starting my Master's Degree in pure Informatics next week!
That led me to the most important decision - registering here at devRant. Seems we are colleagues now ;D.
Wish me luck and thank you all!1
In 2011,when i was 12, i was playing Garry's Mod with a couple of friends, and i don't remember the circunstance, but one of my friends said: "I wonder how games i made". I have no idea why i was never curious about this subject before,since i played A LOT of videogames, but this question did stick to my mind, so i decided that i would search about it. Searching, i discovered that Garry's Mod used the Source engine, and that it was made in LUA. Tried LUA. Understood very little. Lost my interest. And then, i would only attempt to program again back in 2015, where i learned C++ in high school. Then i learned SQL, and now learning Java. I also discovered that i LOVE programming, and now i have plans to graduate on CS.
Worst part of being a dev..quite a comprehensive question..i think the most is having to subject yourself to a client's myopic suggestions..which technically makes your job look unprofessional. I end up not leaving my imprint on such jobs..and it feels like a total waste of time.
When you pass a subject in one go where you cannot even fucking pronounce terms, symbols and notations in half of the chapters.
Also, just few hours before the exam, I was like, "Fuck this shit lets watch football".
P.S - Physics, the biggest nightmare of any CS student.
(Sorry it might sound a little OT but it had to be posted 😅)7
Alright I gotta ask IDE or Text Editor for development... and you care to WHY? I haven't found any rant on this subject yet and I'm curious what you ranters use!
Personally I use an IDE and more specifically Intellj suite for development
RubyMine, PHPStorm, and Android Studio for all my dev work for debugging, refactoring, and code completion to name a few.7
Mid Semester exam tomorrow
We have three Mid Semester exam every semester, in each subject ( and they call it 'Mid' 😑😑😑 ), and I had already skipped first two mid-semester exam of every subject.
Heart saying - "keep coding"
Brain shouting - "Fuck that piece of shit exam"
So, Coding right now, writing codes for my own project .......
And, I had already Skipped all mid-sem exams in the last semester, and then two end-sem ( final ) exam too, and then skipped all mid-sem exam this Semester too15
As a professional googler (who has recently included the skill on his resume too), I wanna ask you all, what googling tips and advices you got you wished others that you're working with knew?
I'll start with one simple and clear one myself:
Start with a wide search, then narrow it down with including and specially excluding keywords. don't start too specific as you might not be familiar with the language of the subject and the way it's addressed.9
Looking for inspiration. What's the most advance website you guys have seen lately? Doesnt matter what subject it's on..3
When I was in uni (software dev), I'd have a subject where we would look at privacy. We needed to create a log with all kinds of traces we would leave behind: checking in at public transportation, paying with debit card at the store and so on. I was so lazy and I knew I wasn't going to get it done if I had to write down everything.
So I created an app in Swift 1, that would connect to Parse (RIP). That made me realize how awesome iOS development is, and made me continue my pursuit of knowledge. :)
Kinda’ NOT(x+x) = rant, but still would like to have some way of direct message system in the app, i guess it will be added in the near future but im getting more frustrated by the hour when not being able to communicate directly with a user without a mention publicly and offtopic’ing the main rant’s subject.
Another thing would be cool to have the app in landscape mode without losing its ui/ux integrity. Think “iphone 6” ergonomics when at restful position.
Just realized how monstrous this app could get and be if the team grew and started implementing shit ton of APIs to connect and centralize every coding dev scheme.
And not sure if its okay or not but, I just mentioned myself! XD iMessages dejavu?3
Anyone here tried to i3 rice antergos? I am new to the subject and I prefer to stick with antergos instead of pure arch.4
100th email of the day with the same subject...revised from marketing. Just sort it out and send me the last one
I'm about to give a presentation to IBM engineers on a subject I don't really know much about and for which I haven't practice
It's going to be a nice day4
My housemate (we are college students) once said he was finding it weird his name wasn't in the list of students to take the exam of a programming subject he had but he couldnt find a reason to explain it.
A few days later he came into my room frustrated as hell but laughing at the same time. "I have to stop taking headphones to class... I've figured it out. I failed already for being absent because when the teacher registered the students present I had my headphones on e every time and couldn't hear him..." 😂😂😂
I learned today that learning programming in MVC architecture has nothing to do with programming but understanding objects, layers, architecture etc.
Please dear tutorial creators, introduce me to the subject with explanations of those and not with some code of mvc or whatever.
Tomorrow is the final technical review on a project we're working on with friends at school since September. The subject was not entertaining but we had a lot of fun trying stuffs (think Node, Vue, Raspberry). I've been writing my part of our final report all the week-end (security and deployment) and it is very nice to see how we managed to do something cool out of that subject !
Hello, I am currently taking BS Computer Science and for this semester we are required to take a subject on Discrete Mathematics (logic).
My question is, how can I apply this knowledge in programming?
Hi. I stumbled upon this Kickstarter project: https://kickstarter.com/projects/...
Is it worth it or is it just a waste of money?
I am a quite of a lurker, but from the posts I read @linuxxx should be the expert on this subject (I mean no offense to any other devRanter and I apologize if you felt unappreciated by what what I wrote).
Looking forward to your replies.
Thanks for your time.10
I'm in highschool, and I have this class about science. We are soon going to do our own project/study for half a year or so. It could be in any subject, and I wondered if you guys had any suggestions to a project related to computer science / programming etc.3
So the other day at my company we were talking about what we were going to talk at the IT Week in my former University. I was giving some ideas and talked about what other company's talked about and what was interesting for the students to hear.
While we were in the subject my colleagues searched some of the company's I've mentioned. We discovered that one of those company's had a Happiness Manager.
That was the first time I've heard of such an occupation. Like, is this a thing? An occupation to make other coworkers happy/ensure their happiness?
At the place I intern, we're managing a project that's quite old (about 8 years). There's a specification document that discusses features but the mentioned stuff has been subject to incremental changes over the years so that these documents no longer fully discuss exact specifications of a particular feature. I'm curious on how you keep track of such incremental changes to a feature? Do you update the specification document with the new requirement document or is there some other way to do it?1
Walked in to work with an email subject "timesheets" and a calendar appointment to "explain".
Well. That's me in a pissy mood all day. Guess what's coming ...
Arse. Arse. Arse.
So many great features, that don't get adopted by the web. For example CSS4 "subject of a selector" or ES6 "import/export". What dead features do you miss most?
Some programmer or QA person somewhere in the world is having a moment of great reflection on the subject of thoroughly testing their code. If not that, then on the subject of a super crappy manager who knew better and pushed to production anyway.
“Then in September this year, nearly three years later, he got a letter from Wells Fargo. "Dear Jose Aguilar," it read, "We made a mistake… we're sorry." It said the decision on his loan modification was based "on a faulty calculation" and his loan "should have been" approved.
"It's just like, 'Are you serious? Are you kidding me?' Like they destroyed my kids' life and my life, and now you want me to – 'We're sorry?'"
More of a general uni rant but I'm currently at a lecture and I feel like I'm back at high school... All the questions like can't you just go on with the subject and if we don't get something we will ask...
The "voluntary" Affirmative Action tracking questions on your site's job applications are no longer voluntary if you don't have an "I choose not to say" option and refuse to accept the placeholder "Choose One"...
"Refusal to provide this information will not subject you to adverse treatment." ...other than the inability to submit your application, of course.
I'm trying to study physics for my exam (as it's compulsory subject here). So, in physics, there is this thing we call divergence of vector A, written as div A. And everytime I write div A, it reminds me of HTML and how interesting it was to learn it thus making studying physics further impossible. Brainfuck :/1
Does somebody have any experience with LXC/LXD containers on servers? I basicaly want all the services separated, but still have an easy way to manage the networking/routing for all the services and containers.
Any reference, guide or tool that helped you in master this subject?
Thank you in advance!5
I'm looking for a college right now and I found one that has the right major for me (Game Dev), but in their recruitment paper I found this under "subject": Computer Graphics in .NET. Am I missing something or is .Net a good platform for making computer graphics?
Also if anyone knows of any college that teaches Game Dev in Poland, please let me know. (Jak na razie znalazłem tylko w Nysie, ale jeszcze szukam)2
Once I was in a programming class, and the teacher was explaining the subject for the class, and this guy asks something (about using an else after an if condition, because of efficiency, I think) and he replies with something like "yeah, you know, I like to live dangerous". I kid you not (yes, he said DANGEROUS instead of DANGEROUSLY). I had to try not to laugh out loud.
So this software student is wondering if the masters on this app know about a good project during summer that I could collaborate virtually and get some experience?
I am interested in app development, web dev, really like SQL too, but any other subject would do.
Sorry if this question was asked before but I cant seem to find one, and I dont know when to even start.
No internships where i live :/4
In finals, I was prepared to write code for any given problem. Instead, the professor gave code snippet itself for all questions and asked to write output. No comments, nothing. Just pure spaghetti code. Wasted so much time in analyzing the code that I had to leave a couple of questions unattended. Moreover each question weighted for around 8 marks. So, just one miscalculation means 8 marks is into the void. I'm feeling like I'd get just enough marks to clear the subject.1
Project Management class, that is currently handled by the prof that "taught" us Java that ended the course/subject without telling what OOP == disaster4
Years ago I worked in an engineering department at a renewable energy center. The project manager urgently asked me for a development to transform a format from one system to another, it was for the next day, and at the last hour of the day. The next day he only asked me how the subject was, I told him that waiting That the analyst of the other company arrived, that I had finished it the same day. A year later, this project manager called me to see if I had the development in question that the requirements had changed and we had to update it, six months later when I met the other analyst ......this is Spain :o2
For me it's definitely teaching. Whether I teach coding or any mathematical or even theoretical subjects. I find that when you teach someone you learn how to communicate better and transfer knowledge effectively. Communication is key in client relationships.
Secondly when you teach someone a concept you think you understand you tend to find flaws in the way you understand that subject matter by forcing you to hear your explanation out loud. This in turn will make you delve deeper into that subject matter and make you understand it better, rearranging your own perceptions and correcting those flaws.
I am a 1st Year CS student, should i complete atleast one intern this year? Or any CS topic or subject to pay more attention to?3
I’ve seen so many rants on here about people wanting things for free for whatever reason.
While devrant is great, I think this is the best rant on the subject ever.
That moment when the business expects you to work 60 hours and be available 24/7 to support rollout, but won't subject their team to the same.
Its just frustrating being a person who learns tech or any other stream from the internet.As much as i love the huge amout of information we have access to, it becomes difficult to sort through the tons of information and learn something.When i was a kid , there was a text book which had concepts which i had to understand to increase my knowledge but now without a proper sylabbus and no single source material i'm consuming everything and i end up re-reading same concept again , except this time its from another book.How do u devs get a proper sylabbus and focus yourself when you are reading about a particular subject?3
My first year of a 2 year course our teacher had only taught us 2 theory topics of 6 and hadn't begun to teach us the other 2/3 of the course which was programming. The only reason he took so long was because he wanted everyone to understand the topic before he moved on which meant waiting for the people who shouldn't of been allowed to take the subject because they never paid attention and showed no interest in the subject. But he refused to move on without them.
To drag those 2 topics out more one of them was algorithms. At the time he had sprained his wrist shadow boxing and instead of preparing them before hand to give us some help he would type them out while we sat and watched wasting half the lesson. Then a month or so into our second year he left leaving the other teachers to make up for everything he failed to cover with us.
So.. in the AngularJS we had Promises and Deferred objects and in Angular we have RxJS and Observables and Subjects... and I spent last few hours googling for something like "deferred equivalent in angular" with no useful result at all, because, well, "Subject" is not the first damn thing to come to mind when looking for "Deferred" synonyms.. who the hell is making up these names?
It's like "well, since this is a new framework, it should also have completely different(and unrelated) names, so that it does not resemble the old one at all".2
Is there any way to make software engineering an interesting subject, instead of just theory that we have to study as an undergraduate student?1
It feels like there is a rule of the internet that any code snippet visible is immediately subject to review by the comments.2
When a professor asks an expert system of you, but then when u present the design of it he demands it to be dumbed down cause "it is only for learning purposes", and to top it he adds "I don't want you to make a real expert system"......... Note the system must be built based on rules and knowledge and be done only in prolog. The subject is AI 2, we should be learning something better.....4
Any good tuto sharing about dispatch queue on swift 4? Have already googled the subject, but any real experience will be greatly appreciated.
StackExchange- the place you go when you have a valid question in any academic subject if you want an answer that includes being told how stupid you are for not knowing it
im having this subject in my academic syllabus - VHDL. the teacher was teaching its programming syntax and he didnt know the difference between a hyphen( - ) and an underscore( _ )2
Just keep your docs with your source on GitHub. Don't make me use your shitty website and don't subject me to your broken links and constant redirects. I fucking hate this shit so much just give me the raw documentation. Thats all I asked for.
And get rid of that HUGE example column that takes up half my display.

Recently in our school our final year class choice forms are starting to be handed out. 5 lists, you pick one subject from each.
Now, I really wanted Advanced higher computing, to the point where I nearly begged on the survey choice forms. There's two of us that really want it. What happens? IT'S NOT ON THE FINAL FORM.
The only two subjects I could get was engineering and maths. Three of my other lists are completely to say politely, fucking shite.
Guys i need some suggestions on how to bring open source and Linux culture in our college. Students already have a subject which teaches basics of ubuntu and red hat and shell scripting.
What's the subject of the week? It usually says in the heading of the rant feed, but now there's just the news about the issue tracker.2
Came to college to finally study the subject I love, to code in peace. After finally getting through the rigorous admission process in which you study stuff that isn't actually relevant to the stream you'll be choosing in college. And all of this for what to join in the vain pursuit of getting a good CGPA. All of this is literally sucking the time out of my life. Fml
So udemy are currently doing sales
Can you guys recommend me some courses to buy? Of whatever subject you like (development, business, etc...)1
Gonna start a tech blog next month. My problem is that I can't think of an interesting subject that can get me followers in the middle of this huge number of tech blogs. Any ideas would be very very appreciated. Thank you
