Fucking someone has to fix the recruiting process.
Fucking who gives a shit about your experience, and what you did so long.
Here take this fucking shitty problem that I googled, so that I can judge you by this one fucking problem.
Oh, youve worked on variety of technologies? Fuck you.
Fuck these interviews. Fml.9
I see you worked for 5 years at xyz and you used c# but your CV says you used other technologies like sql and you did testing.. So how much of your time was spent writing c#?
Most of the time.. Maybe 60%.
Ok, let me work that out... ok I will put down that you have 3 years c# experience.10
Signed up for an Android course at my uni and expected to have some fun with Android Studio and modern app development technologies...
Turns out that we're working with Blockly (no coding). We will write our exam with Blockly. The course is mandatory and I cannot opt out.
I've been a dev since 7 years and I am dead inside already.14
College be like : welcome to web technologies class, proceed to
*5 months of HTML*
*2 weeks of CSS*
* Guest appearance by PHP for 5 mins*16
Tech industry: "We need thousands upon thousands of engineers!"*
* With a minimum of 5 years+ experience in about 30 technologies, able to do magic and ride unicorns while working 28 hours pr day just for the lolz of it. We do not provide training, courses or certifications of any kind. You are supposed to be able to pull those out of your ass yourself!7
Our Web Technology professor taught us this in the year 2016, he said and I quote,
"HTML frames are the latest technologies in the www and are supported by new generation browsers only, for example Netscape navigator."14
Web devs are like autocorrect:
- You're needed but never told you are
- You're great at your job, but everyone complains about your few faults
- You learn more as you work with the client
- You improve little by little every day
- Your buttons are pushed a lot
- You use new technologies when you can8
Hey you guys working on cloud technologies..
Can you guys... like .... turn off the 'Rain', in my location, for a while. ?
I wanna get home :\5
My LinkedIn profile bio:
... however I’m not interested in hybrid mobile or contract work.
My LinkedIn “notes to recruiters”:
... I’m not interested in hybrid mobile or contract work.
- ticked full time permanent
- listed native technologies in the tag selector.
Email this morning:
Hi are you interested in the below role:
Role: Hybrid mobile developer
Type: 6 - 12 month contract.
No I am not you fucking fucktard. Read my fucking profile or go fuck yourself with a fucking cactus!9
First rant, so here goes:
@rant = 'when the contractor your boss brought in to help, whose weekly rate exceeds your monthly salary, doesn't know the difference between server side and client side technologies.'
"What technologies do you know?"
"I can write pretty URLs that return JSON"
"You mean REST?"
"No, I mean pretty URLs that return JSON"3
Having to learn "Modern web technologies" from a 60 year old woman who has never heard of HTML5 and build her website with tables. And we even had to code on paper. Fuck sake, so much time wasted6
Not a rant, just awesomeness:
At my company our CTO organizes a meeting every month that gives us devs a chance to present new technologies to each other, offer advice about workflows and give feedback about current situations. This allows us to constantly improve.
Being a developer is it still possible to be a gamer?
I feel like with all the new technologies coming in, I am always occupied with learning something and I don't get the time to game at all.
I am coming to a realisation that everything together is not possible anymore :(19
I learned that the technologies I use for my side projects are cooler than the side projects themselves.
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
Can we all take a moment to appreciate what a complete mess web technologies are.
We're abusing a markup language made for scientific writing, by styling it with css and in order to make it dynamic somehow, we run a weird ass scripting language on the clientside.
Because nobody really wants to use this burning garbage can, some of us invented web frameworks.
And let's not get started on php...14
Boss: "Can we create apps that are supercool, superfast, supercustomizable and superhitech?"
Me: "If you want apps like these I have to use this tool, this language and this other stuff. Just keep in mind that are new technologies for me and I need to study a lot before develop everything"
Boss: "Ok! can you do it for tomorrow?"
I'm working on the project with the weirdest combination of technologies ever:
Vue.js on the frontend, FORTRAN 77 on the backend. :D
(Plus a thin Spring MVC layer that converts the f77 routines into REST API)6
This is more on work and life balance.
1. Don't do hard work, but do 'Smart work', else you will end up burn yourself 100%.
2. Don't think your manager is your guardian angel, even though it seems like sometimes. He has his own goals to achieve.
3. Spend considerable time daily in and out of office/work, for your own development/improvement.
4. Learn new languages and technologies.
5. Stop making things perfect, 'good' is enough.
and it goes on ............3
For those of you who are blessed with being able to use new technologies, enjoy it. I just got handed another system to maintain.. last comment in the code was written in 1995.10
*Me feeling productive on a day
Today I am going to start working on the complex part of my proect. Spends 1 hour deciding what all technologies to use , how to implement it, which design patterns to use .
Let's do it
*15 min later
Making some tiny css corrections
*3 hrs later
Making some tiny css corrections
*An eternity later
REALISED DIDN'T SET THE SIZE OF THE PARENT CONTAINER TO 100%
So much for thinking about being productive for today :(((5
My friend brought me this, saying "I just found this in my junks, thought it might be useful for you. Weren't you a programmer?"
At first I thought I should explain about how fast everything changes over here and how it is out of style to talk about 2000s technologies, let alone a book from 1973!
I just said "Thanks! In fact it is a precious antique. I'll add it to my collection."
It really is.4
I resigned today 😍
No more dealing with shit architecture and experimental beta technologies being used in production which went down constantly 😎
Back to good ol' product development! 🤩
One month notice period to go3
Wohoo! Adobe kills flash in 2020 👍
"Adobe chose to end Flash because it believes coding technologies like HTML5, WebGL, and WebAssembly "
In web technologies lab.
Friend copied some php code from some website and saved it.
Tries to run it and it just prints whatever he wrote.
After thinking for like half an hour he calls me.
Friend: hey u know php right? Why my code is not running?
I check the code in the editor and everything looks fine except he saved his php code with an extension .txt 😑 😑2
I love learning new and exciting technologies, but I hate that it makes me want to rewrite half of my projects.3
Been playing a lot of old NES games lately.
Made me think how did they develop and program such amazing games with primitive 80'-90's technologies, assembly/c and no internet.
Now with all the tech we have most games are crap and based on webshit or mobile.5
There's so many cool technologies too look into now a days, but so little time.
Where do i download more hours to add to my days?16
After over 1.5 month long recruitment and 4 stages (3 technical and one with HR) they finally said it was last stage and they will write to me with their decision soon. I really want to get this job. It would be great step in my career and I could learn so much more compared to the company I'm stuck in right now. Actually working with new and interesting technologies! Can you imagine?
Hold your fingers crossed for me guys.7
I was so tired of my job and I wanted to do something of my own. So, I thought why not just follow my heart, I love to travel so I just got into blogging and all with www.blacknwhiteboxes.com and now I have a company of my own where I help people plan trek.1
I wonder why stack overflow gets so much hate on here. To me, it is a tremendously helpful community. People are usually pleasant and forthcoming.
I sometimes see questions closed as "not constructive", even though it has thousands of upvotes, but generally, if you follow the rules, you'll have a good time.
Maybe people want SO to be something it is not, or maybe people behave differently around different technologies. I mostly find Python, Djang and general web answers, and they are fine5
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
What I really like about all these growing startups/platforms like airbnb, netflix etc, is that they open source their cool technologies so that anybody can use them. If you look through their github repos, you can find a lot of cool and interesting stuff and especially it's mostly already battle tested and it works.
Imo this is some really big contribution in turn to the money they make :)2
Yesterday, I got an email from Apar technologies offering me a job for their client Nielson Malaysia.
Was very excited, but had to refuse due to me being underage(15).11
Do not steer away from projects using technologies you may not know or be comfortable in. Instead worked your hardest to get it right, ask lots of questions and don't be insulted if people find issues in your code. It's a learning experience.
Job hunting and came across this terrifying role. Thought those technologies were wiped out with the dinosaurs!6
It's cool to put stickers of big brands and technologies on your laptop. But how about putting your own stickers on it? I think that should be the right way of using stickers while promoting your work.
Here's some of my projects that I used its logo as sticker:
I want to do 3 things in life:
1. Learn new technologies and don't work at all just learning.
2. Play video games.
3. Eat without getting over weight.10
Just updated my LinkedIn summary, included "Design Thinking", "bleeding edge technologies" and "innovation-driven"...
What other phrases can you think of that only exist to play Buzzword-Bullshit-Bingo? :D5
I want to leave my job because it only uses old technologies but when I look for jobs they're looking for people with experience on new technologies. Catch-22.3
Friend of mine: so I wonder how do you test your applications in the startup?
Me: testing? *grabs his coffee laughing*
Actually we have a complete build pipeline from commit/pull-request to dev and production environments. No tests. Really. We are in rapid product development / research state.
We change technologies and approaches like our underwear (and yeah, this is frequently). If we settled some day and understood the basic problems of the whole feature palette, we'll talk about tests again.4
If anyone wants to create a webapp using React, Express, Webpack, Babel I just created a boilerplate to make things easy for you guys. It contains extremely basic files and the whole file structure including Redux structure. I've struggled a lot to understand and combine this technologies. I've felt like now that I understand I should share with you guys.
Feeling a little frustrated for not learning faster and getting kind a stuck, I'm not getting any younger.11
I have a habit of viewing the page source of beautiful websites I visit... as well as finding out technologies used on it.2
- finish my masters
- improve my code quality
- build at least 3 personal projects
- learn 2 new technologies
- find better clients or a good job1
Does anyone feel overwhelmed by all the new technologies? It's like every developer nowadays code in JS, and knows ES6, React, webpack, babel by heart. I have been working in Java for less than a decade and sometimes feel like I can't catch up. Even in Java ecosystem there is now Scala, Groovy, Gradle, Kotlin... Not to mention other languages like Python, Swift... How do you guys have time to pick up everything?? 😖7
You know you have some power, when your boss asks you for your opinion and advice about how to structure an upcoming project and which technologies and frameworks to use.
Give me that raise already.1
After 3 interviews with test:
"Thanks, so what about the first app?"
"App? oh no eheh, now you must manage our 12 wordpress sites and edit the CSS!"
"Very good, so while I see you all goin to fuck monkeys I with to you a nice day"2
I hate most techbloggers...
"It is said that apart from HTML and CSS, Java is one of the [...]"
"React JS is an open source library made of Java scripts [...]"
One word. WordPress.
Thankfully, we are now creating custom solution with any technologies we pick.5
Do you all get the mood when you don't wish to code anything because you like to Google new technologies and platforms all day?
I'm having such a mood today.2
My cs degree helped me learn how to learn. No it didn't teach me the technologies I use today, but I now know that I learn best through struggle and that is invaluable. Struggle feels a lot like frustration so it can be confusing in the moment, but knowing that it's the feeling where I learn the best keeps me at the problem with a positive attitude.
Also I made a lot of great friends.1
What are some of the new hot technologies that people and companies seem to be flocking to and how do you feel about them?
Just doing a reality check to see if I’m out of touch.16
When your uncle is an Assembly Language programmer, developing Gym Trademills and shit
And he thinks working with Web Technologies is damn easy..
Oh Wait a Min.. :|3
I am working in a company where the pay is not that great but i am learning newer technologies here. And now I am getting a offer from a company where the pay will be decent but not so sure that I will learn that much.
Need advise which one should i choose.7
I find many of the peculiarities about our kind (developer) to be amusing.
Here is one I have seen too many times to count...
You ask a group of developer something like...
“We have a project built using X, Y and Z. We are looking at integrating the “example framework” to solve a specific problem. Do you have any experience with “example framework” or would you suggest another framework?”
Inevitably you get the same useless response of “Why are you using X, Y, and Z. It’s so <insert generic complaint here>!” Followed with no actual attempt to answer the question asked...
Listen, I know some of us a socially awkward (I can be) and I know we like to debate and argue.
But, if someone asks you a specific technical question about an existing product, either...
1. Answer the question with your experience
2. Declare that you do not have experience with it
3. Shut your fucking childish mouth
No one cares about how you feel about the size of the underlying technology in existing products! What do you expect?
“OMG, we didn’t realize X technology as 100mb large! Hold on while we go and reengineer our entire product base because of this fucking revelation you just told us!”
You may want to hear your own voice but the rest of us would prefer it if you would shut your mouth if you have nothing useful to add.
(Reads as: we would prefer is you fucked right off!)3
The more I work with backend and SysAdmin technologies, the more I love them!
I'm losing the desire to ever do frontend work again. SysAdmin in particular seems like a good fit for me and I'm not sure why.
Anybody else experience this sort of shift and how did it end?2
As a developer, I have grown to love/hate certain languages or technologies but this framework will always be bae to me <32
Hit udemy, Google for any new technologies, attend large conferences, and simply spend 30 mins to an hour each day coding in anything new - and of interest.
I have to keep up with the young people, to keep my job/career alive, heh.1
Well those are the FAQs... But where the Fuck are the answers?
I guess it's just oracle being oracle
And yes I have checked on mobile and desktop with 4 different browsers.
And no those aren't links
Being a developer is a fucking struggle and no one fucking understands it.
Trying to keep up with new technologies and working with Project Managers that wants stuff to be delivered in no time is what makes you regret your career sometimes..
Maaan I FUCKING HATE THIS JOB!!!8
When company assigned me, an internship student, as only developer for a project that needs data mining on connected hives, back-end alert management, front-end difficult animation management with Microsoft technologies when I was learning C#1
It's been months since I have them, but I'm just now thinking about sticking them.
Waddya think about this layout?
I have some others but am not enough acquainted with the technologies they represent to use them (and I don't like to lie on my resume).
Also, they're not yet stuck because I wanted to know your opinion first.13
My vote is that all developers decide to refuse to support shitty shit like WordPress and Java and just like force everyone to use only good technologies.
We have the power guys...6
My manager told me that I'm going to become unmarketable if I don't start expanding my skills to include other programming languages... This same guy is trying to get rid of the C# and Python applications that our team owns so that he doesn't have to train employees in those technologies. WTF?3
I'm currently an intern in a startup
I started 3 months ago and I will finish in 1-2 months
From the beginning, all the team is very nice with me and say that I do a really great job
I could learn many many things and I can say my ideas during the project
This is a message to CEO/CEO, you see, if you offer a really good internship with interesting tasks and technologies, student like me are really motivated, want to learn, want to really participe to the project even if I do more hours than I have to do
Because we, students, are like you : interested in new technologies and great ideas
Offer good internship and you will be happy to have good and motivate intern in your Company
Had an interview for position of an Android developer. All the questions asked were from Web technologies.2
Fucking kill me. I've just agreed to make a shitty fucking app that would be better as a Webpage, using shitty fucking technologies I don't understand, to do a thing that would be better handled by a third party.
You know why? The guy who asked me to do it is a good friend, and I'm the "best (only) code monkey" he knows. FUCK MY LIFE.
At least I'm getting payed7
2 weeks in my new job. I started hating the work. I'm stuck working on legacy systems. This guys don't work on latest technologies.3
There should be a document given to all recruiters outlining how technologies are related and what NOT to ask developers. The hate has to stop. Imagine a world where the recruiters (broadly) understood devs. We'd have a much easier time getting jobs. I think I might just write one up and try to distribute it locally.3
For those who got a degree in CS or similar, what is some advice you can offer to a sophomore in school?
The education I have gotten so far for a Software Engineering degree seems like it isn't enough. So far, I only know C++ and front end web development. Besides the little tiny projects they give us, they do not teach us how the field works.
One of my most lingering questions of all is.. what technologies should I know before interning and/or job hunting?!?! There are dozens of languages for everything; I'm lost. I feel the pain for developers in the future who have to catch up on technologies.
I have heard that learning C++ will make it easier to learn other languages. I won't know until I start another language (too busy working in the summers).
What regrets do you have? What do you wish you could've known while studying as a student or self-teaching yourself?8
Atleast make it random but cycling through ? Really ?? In it's presentation google assistant was presented as this amazing new Ai that used the latest and best machine learning algorithms and methods on the market. Don't get me wrong it's awesome it can predict patterns in my daily life and interactions but thats what machine learning does, we still didn't come very far with human-software interaction technologies have we ?5
Only in India: having worked on multiple platforms and technologies is seen negatively.
PS: I've worked in the US too.10
Being in Data Science and Mobile Development taught me :
1.Always be curious
2.Never stop learning
3.Never give up
4.Don't be afraid of Experimenting new Technologies
5.Don't always take ,Give More ,Share More!!
Do Share What your Domain taught you in the Comments 😀4
Here it goes my second Rpi cluster 😎
Actually there are 3 Orange Pi PC, 1 Rpi3, 1 Rpi2 and an Odroid XU4.
I plan on using it as a workbench for many technologies.
For example DevStack, Ansible, Gluster, TahoeLAFS, Kubernetes, Docker Swarm and such.
Any additional suggestions?2
I work for a consulting company, my boss comes into the room full of engineers trying to work on Adwords campaign and asks us what words to use. "Should I use blockchain, I heart that's popular. What about AR?" None of us have ever touched any of those technologies and he's going to try and market us as such to some poor potential client he's going to B.S to. Get me out of here.1
Am I the only one who thinks that HTML and CSS are backward technologies and that we need to move to something like Android and iOS development for web applications?15
I focus on Android development. I worked on several technologies until early 00s, including some WAP stuff --mobile was actually very interesting to me ever since it exists. But then I went on a hippie fase and worked for a few years on content development (professional blogger) and selling stuff on faires. When I went back to full time dev I got a job at Gameloft and that's how I started with Android.
My latest attempt to improve myself as a dev has been learning front end technologies, or as I prefer to call it, throwing heaps of shit at a wall and seeing what sticks and calling it modern design. Fuckers.
Otherwise I usually try to implement small manageable side projects to learn new tools enough to know what they are good for so if I ever do need them I know what to choose.1
From a job posting I recently viewed:
"About you: We don't care about years of experience or knowledge of particular technologies, if you have a computer science degree; or a degree at all for that matter."
further down in the same posting...:
-MS/BS in Computer Science or related background
Who is bored with their job?
Wish you had something more challenging other than the same drivel day in and day out? Wish you could learn new things or apply better technologies to existing solutions other than just trudging through each day?7
Our clients are upto date with technologies and website standards. We make all our websites in Joomla using HTML5.3 and CSS3. How much of HTML5.3 do you know?6
Sometimes norwegian black metal can come off as a fanboi intercepting a discussion about database technologies and which is better suited for different purposes...
Hey this 'recruiter' texted me a job in Iowa. Glad he texted it. I would not want to miss out on it. Also glad he grammar checked it. Wow double whammy!
I am sure Iowa is a nice place but I live in NY. Tough commute. Glad he did his homework - 'This is Ruchi for Arete Technologies I have job opportunitie for you position is Business Continuity Manager. Location is Des Monies,IA.let me know'1
IMAO, a new programming language/technology is like a new cute girl at your school/workplace. We give it a lot of attention and tend to ignore older programming languages/technologies2
Watch Awesome Videos & news regarding new Technologies.. Then that coder within you automatically comes out
Nothing is more frustrating than working with technologies with very little documentation and no fucking resources online. Trying to debug a Program AB AIML project for hours. StackOverflow has unanswered questions.
Few more hours and I will start pulling my hair.2
We have this bloke in our scrum team who never does shit. He always says that he spent the week studying technologies and what not. How ever looking at the time he has spent 'studying' he should be the scrum master by now...
Who else has a bloke like this in their team?2
So recently moved to a new place. New roommates. Thought lets initiate a talk. Found out one of em is a web developer.
Me: So, what you working on?
Him: Web technologies
Me: oh great...I worked on ReactJS and AngularJS.
Him: Our company uses AngularJS.
Me: So you work on AngularJS, right?
Him: Oh no I don't work on AngularJS...I am a frontend developer...
(Inner me: No shit. Need to find new place.)
Should I tell him?1
Free food & drinks.
Supermega computer with a 10009186372891293 GPUs and shit, 6 screens
Working on cutting edge technologies with world class experts.6
My job. Working in a small IT department. Web programming most of the day and being able to help people with their phones, software, internet connection, and so on...
The only thing I sometimes wished for were some other devs in my company that would understand me and my problems and with whom I could discuss new technologies.
But now I got devrant. I'll be fine from now on.1
Companies try to find young devs, less experienced but more openminded and flexible.. do you think we will still find some cool sobs when we're > 40 || > 50 years old, even if we keep up with new technologies and stuff?
Never thought about it until now..3
Let's make a rant and name some old technologies that have been frequently used and now they are obsolete19
I was wondering !
As a computer geek I would like to know everything from mathematics to programming , robotics and machine learning but as I go , new technologies appear and it's
just like an endless while loop!
I don't mean I wanna stop learning new things but just looking for a more effitient way for doing this!
Any idea about this?3
Ooh... one I can participate in...
My dad was a Java developer, which primarily got me interested.
Back in early 2012, a favorite MMOG of mine shut down and I was interested in how it worked. I was 13 at the time. A friend of mine, on hearing of my interest, emailed me a bunch of links including Chris Pine's ruby tutorial and TheNewBoston.
From then on I tinkered a little with a bunch of different technologies, picked up a few programming books, and now we're here. I've made a little money as a Java developer and I'm working on an iOS game, but I'm still learning and tinkering with new technologies.
Recruiter emailed regarding a fin tech company that is “utilising some very modern technologies such as Scala, Java, C++...”
I was feeling kind so I actually replied (very politely as well) to suggest he change his wording slightly.
Side projects teach you more than anything, I learnt all the new android technologies by working on my side projects1
Being forced to migrate an application written to to run on Solaris 9, which uses Sun ONE Webserver, Netscape LDAP Server and Cold fusion and migrate it to RHEL 7.3 ppc64le before the 3rd of January (I was only told about the project this morning), and I'm told I *have* to use the exact same technologies and versions. I'm on leave for Xmas from the 22 until the 5th of Jan. I know exactly where they can put their arbitrary management deadlines.2
So we got a new Front-End intern today.
And I'm like WTF dude she has worked with Front-End technologies and she knows that.
And who the fuck beautifies and again minify jQuery script. Totally idiot.2
As a first year CSE student
And an intermediate in web development technologies(PHP ,NODE.js, Frontend) and java. But no good contacts. How can I earn a bit so as to add up to my pocket money?
I mean what ar possibilities and how can i do that?3
"Proficient understanding of NodeJS, MangoDB, Other back-end technologies.
Now I can't apply..9
Teaching modern langs and technologies. I had to do python 2 and FileMaker (unrelated to each other) when I did it last year, and it put me off it.
Just read an article about a blind sofftware developer, who is proficient in way more technologies then me, for example.
He can use certain screen reader and code edor combo to read out the text, and also something called refreshable braille display.
This is so insiprational and only goes to show that there is no excuse whatsoever for a person NOT to learn software developing...1
I will major in AI. No, I will major in Big data, wait, I want to major in cloud too. I think I should first complete the courses I enrolled on cloud academy or the tens of courses in enrolled on Udemy on all the domains possible first! So many technologies, so many dreams!
Just had a job offer in my mailbox:
They pay more than 3 times the money I earn now, and the used technologies are exactly what I want to do.
But it is limited for 12months and in a different city about 500km away.
What's everyone's opinion when it comes to PWA's?
Do you think they will have the potential to replace most desktop and mobile applications?
Personally think they are a great platform and could definitely see them replacing lots of current applications but feel like the web technologies can't catch up to some of the major requirements for higher level apps like game engines or games...10
Mine was not CS but software engineering. I had been programming for 5 years, and I think anything before my degree was just so bad. No patterns or anything. It was really good in the way that I learned how to do things well, not exactly learning about the technologies. I also have an internship that I must do for at least 3 months before getting the degree which also helps.3
Gotta love when recruiters try telling me they have a front end role that requires 5+ years experience in Java and Spring.
Get your technologies right2
I've had so much time contemplating my bad decisions that I came up with the following anecdote:
Making complex, scalable and cross browser animations with web technologies is like trying to stick your d*ck into a shot glass tied to a galloping gazelle.
There are many ways you could go about it, all of them impractical, with the end result being that it might not fit...4
But... there is *some* light on the horizon. The very newest automation tool now has a new plugin, which is based in NodeJS. Having just installed this newer version, I looked in the files to find the nodejs.exe executable... to find that it's on version 8.9.4. Ok it's not precisely the "latest" version, but knowing the history of development for these things I almost expected node 0.10.
It's great news in all this ancient technology I have to deal with. When's the *last* time you made an HTTP request using this code?
var http = new ActiveXObject("WinHttp.WinHttpRequest.5.1");
http.open('GET', 'http://example.com/', false);2
Look at this my university's WEB TECHNOLOGIES paper. It is totally full of crap and shitty questions.😅8
"We are applying deep learning, NLP, machine learning, Big Data frameworks and other technologies to produce outstanding fintech products in areas of robo advisors, stocks and cryptocurrencies analysis, digital assistants, prediction of customer behavior, deep learning analysis of alternative data (satellite images) and other areas."
Awesome products to build
Work from home
New technologies to work with
Update syllabus with latest technologies instead of teaching some outdated language which has no practical use in the market.
What do you do when people(parents) are telling you to go out and tells you you have no life..just because you spend too much time on the computer..and you are actually spending the time learning stuff techniques and technologies which would help you in the future..it just sucks..it kinda looses your morale in a way...19
Technologies come and go, but it has a lot in common. Set priorities right. Invest 80% of your learning time in fundamentals. Leave 20% for frameworks, libraries and tools.3
Does it get easier?
I think it does but, I wanna hear it from someone.
Every little thing I want to do, I look it up online. Even if I've done it before, but I've probably forgotten how.
And the fact that there's A LOT of technologies out there, and that they'll just keep coming everyday, just adds to the overwhelming feeling I'm in.
Python's beauty does help a little though :)3
2 job offers on table.
One, where I'd to work on multiple technologies, comfortable timing i.e 6 - 7 hours a day. Enough time to do personal projects.
Other, I'd to work on single technology stack, but more complex and large projects. Good for architectural and design pattern knowledge. Better pay, but stressing work hours like 8-10 hours daily. Might be on weekends as well.
Help me out!18
I've had a mentor who talked less and taught more. Before becoming a front end developer, I was doing flash. So, when I started front end, I didn't have any idea even about the basic stuff.
But, whenever I get stuck he will give a keyword for me to search. So, I learned how to survive in New areas & technologies - By googling.
Fuck AngularJS. "Modern technologies" just makes shit harder. I'ma try rewriting my client in JQuery and Handlebars.JS... But Node.JS 8 with the async and await stuffs is actually good "new" tech.
(Why tf did new get autocorrected to Jew?)4
What do you guys think about people who call themselves programmers after learning few technologies from Onlinecourse’s . I don’t want to call someone programmer who doesn’t know very important and useful concepts called data structures and algorithms.2
I work in a company, where prototypes become instantly a product... People are far from being an expert in the technologies we use (technologies which were chosen by management without any further research).
Timeframes are more than short, so there is no chance to learn what you need to know to be able to create something really maintainable and stable.
Guess what - that shit is going to be installed at the customer site, where neither we nor them know what to fucking do if something breaks ...
of all the technologies that never came to be, I have to say gmail blue is the one I hoped for most1
That wonderful moment when you explain a bunch of different technologies to a customer (thinking they'll work with you to choose one from the lot), and they go off, only to come back having cooked up some scheme in which they want you to have them all working together seamlessly.2
Aspiring freelance/junior web dev here, I'm familiar with WSGI (using Flask), some PHP, Apache, JSON, and Vanilla JS. What other technologies should I be learning to make myself more marketable?6
I just started a new job today and I fucking love it. I've learned more in a day than I do on a weekly basis in school. It's difficult but exciting as fuck to actually be able to use the technologies you've learned in a professional context.
Take others advice. Just because you have more experience doesn't mean you know everything. Especially with programming, new technologies pop up every week.
Don't get mad. Listen. Try. Learn.
Never saying "I can't" or "I don't know how". Instead saying "I'll try" or "I haven't done that yet", and trying to complete the project or task.
And asking the experienced people around myself how they would have approached a project to get different perspectives.
Also keeping an open mind, trying to use new technologies when it's appropriate.
There's a rumour that they are gonna stop frontend and shift us to backend which is done in Java.
I don't like Java at all. I find myself mostly interested in frontend technologies. Also, just recently started learning Angular2 and I'm liking it.
I know what i should do, but just to confirm my judgement..
Any reason why i should stay and try to work in backend here instead of moving to another company as frontend dev?1
There are too many things to get started in I don't know what field to choose.
There are so many technologies listed on job descriptions and it feels like I need to know them all.
Most of them are a huge reach expecting a new grad to have experience with.
When not coding I love writing scifi so I can explore technologies I'm too impatient to wait on. Would love any and all thoughts on my recent piece (can just read intro if you want): https://inkshares.com/books/...3
After reading this post, I am so confused what to with this life. I thought of becoming a full stack developer. After reading it, I am thinking, is this I want to do with my life. How many libraries, frameworks, technologies and languages should I learn.
Getting confused what to do now. Grrrr...2
At last, after a year and a half working with legacy codebase, I got the greenlight from the seniors to refactor my team's app to modern front end technologies. You know, webpack, unit tests, component based architecture and shit.. I really love it!
My PM doesn't look as enthusiastic though...1
There are many technologies that I wish didn't exist but this one takes the fucking cake.
I refuse to work from cafes with this bullshit at the register.3
There are just too many interesting languages and technologies to learn and too little time. How does one manage that?7
Reason to hate my D grade engineering college.
1st lecture of web development.
Expectation : at least teacher will introduce fucking web development technologies.
Teacher=> look I don't know anything about PHP so learn from web. I will give you internal marks just submit assignment on time.
Btw it is not story.3
Are there any technologies or techniques that you don't like but they are so popular you dare not mention?21
Personally I love JS for some solutions but prefer using a diverse array of technologies for different tasks4
I decided to dive into programming by learning C#. Main reason behind it was to avoid the zillions of frameworks and technologies (which scare me) and most importantly dumb client requests. I already have a lot of xp as a designer and working for the web bizz was just UGH!
Nevertheless, I am still wondering if I should pick up some web technologies. I am planning to pick up .NET and C# design patterns next, but what then? Do you think it's smart to focus only on enterprise software development today? I don't mind developing a bigger web-based app or doing server-related stuff either. Everything but startups and developing sites for my cousin's friend's sister hair saloon.
What is the smartest way to go with C# as a starting point in terms of job opportunities?3
Coworker: "Hey, I have an idea. I think it will be much better if, one month before launch, we pivot this project from using 2D animation to using 3D Animation with Motion Capture! It will save us so much time!"
Me: I'd be happy to look into it for you, but those technologies are very labour intensive and we don't currently employ anyone who has any experience in those technologies. However, I absolutely agree and I believe we could look at this in 1-2 years after the prototype of the application is completed.
Coworker: I'm more optimistic than you.
Actual conversation. Coworker made an animation once in college, which is the entire basis of their argument.2
1. Reduce the number of web development technologies so that I can actually keep up.
2. Master Android development.
3. No more "Please hack a Facebook account for me".
Knowing SQL does not mean knowing all the existing technologies that uses SQL, motherfucker! Stop bragging around that you know Postgres, SQL Server, Oracle and shit.
IT is full of shit talkers and ego, NNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH10
I was talking to my non tech friend, one friend of her who is working at one big kind of MNC (Mobile network companies) asked me what do you use in VFox.
I have no fucking idea what's VFox. I said I have no idea what is, we don't use it. He immediately asked me what technologies you guys are using (I am working in a startup)?
I said we are using Ruby, Ruby On Rails and Python, Djanho. He said you use all the old technologies.
I was like: WTF :😂, Okay tell me what are the new technologies? My friend interrupted us.
Later I googled to see what is VFox. It is actually a hosting company and this guy who don't even have any idea about AWS, GCP, using VFox saying Ruby and Python are old technologies. Lol..
Don't blame the teachers, they don't know the latest technologies themselves, they are mostly graduates, who have almost no work exp, so they might not know latest technologies or how to use em, neither do universities fund them to learn them
P.S. Not a teacher, just put yourself in their shoes2
and another case of my parents discovering new technologies i alteady told them about:
my mum hast just found out about hyperloop, after watching on tv, and is like "wow omg that's incredible 😯😶🤔"
me thinking "well good you (finally) know about it, welcome to the future😅"
if i told them, they would be like "oh ok interesting" and then forget about it the next second😑😪2
I remember back then when we were building an E-commerce website. To maintain good performance the boss insisted using flat table. This was also applied to other projects like GPS. That was already 2013 when NoSQL databases like MongoDB was around already. His concern is he didn't like to risk on new technologies and it would cost money for training instead of using the existing "MySQL" and Microsoft SQL Server.
Everything I learned from that guy was just poop.
Soon I’ll be unemployed (on purpose) and will spend some time on my own project ideas.
Pretty much each of them will require an API..
Already started with the first one using python + flask, but I’m planning to do each of them in a different language..
What do you propose? What’s the most fun and the most interesting technology in your opinion?
I’m senior in Java and advanced in JS, / Node so it won’t be any of those and I’m also not a fan of PHP :)5
randomly get into a position where you can choose the tech stack yourself and get allowed to use some more time to experiment with alternative technologies instead of doing it as fast as possible. Bonus points for getting additional time to create something that not only works now but can be extended later on
tl;dr: pray to fortuna and praise the godess of luck
Learn more languages (programming and verbal wise), expand my knowledge beyond web technologies and build something with hardware, also get paid more.
What kind of projects are you guys currently working on? What technologies are you using? I'm personally thinking about starting to use the MEAN stack to get a working knowledge of it and how it works...9
Got a new job and I'm moving from academia to industry. Decided to step up my web dev game by using Netlify and GatsbyJS to build a static site blog.
Not a difficult task but it forces me to look at more current technologies.
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
My standard pattern for using 'time saving' things (frameworks, scripts, new technologies) seems to be:
1) Get excited by how easy <new thing> is to use.
2) Spend the next 12 hours trying to work out how to work with this new shit.
3) Realise I'm now further back than I started.
Today has been docker.
Easy to run my new Wildfly docker container.... can I find the IP address to connect to? Can I fuck.3
Fuck the ISP and the incompetent retarded developers in the government!
The retarded ISP is injecting malware ads on all web pages which means if you access a non HTTPS site, you're gonna get fucked.
And the retarded government site still do not have HTTPS version for the websites!
The biggest irony is that this particular government site is for developers to register for courses ( paid ) about latest technologies.1
using new web technologies with incomplete documentation is a PITA. Well... time for a guessing game then!2
I'd teach the basic principles of researching technologies, choosing a technology stack, proof of concepts and reading and understanding documentation. If this is done correctly it's 50% of the project. Nowhere on my CS uni has anybody mentioned these things, and I see other students are failing because they don't understand how to start a project or read docs.
Wrote an Android app for the company I work for. Performed a re-write of their iOS application. Wrote that in Swift. Now working on .Net stuff. I don’t think i’m being paid enough for knowing all of these technologies.4
So I just thought that we now have all the technologies to create a drone that picks my used coffee glass from my table, puts it in the dish washer and brings me a new one, but we just need someone lazy enough to master these technologies and put it in production 🙄1
Friend went on date he said he is VP of technologies in a company! Girl quickly looked up LinkedIn to realise his company size is 1-10 employees ;)
Startups and dating can't go hand in hand !2
i wish i had no university classes (or at least, only programming classes) so that i could learn more about different technologies and had more time to code :(3
Who are you going to hire in web dev position?
1. Algorithm master but new to web development.
2. Full fledged with cutting edge web dev technologies but don’t know much about algorithms12
I was part of a team that monitored 1700 radio stations world wide and reported the AirPlay to a BigData system. There were only a few engineers on the project and it was 15 years ago before big data design or technologies were widely available. Our biggest challenge - heat from running the servers so hard.
AWS summit, speakers talking about technologies that amazon didn’t build but they provide on its cloud.
All about how it’s awesome to use those technologies on its cloud infrastructure.
Feeling like I’m on some bad advertising summit.
I heard docker, containers like 100s times already.
On one of the slides they claim that 85% of tensorflow workloads are on their cloud.
That’s powerful statement.
Looks like enterprises are all on the way to Oracle 2.0 called AWS.5
Why on Earth would you build API in VBA ? It's such an unusable language, everything is stupid (cuz it's for beginners, right? just fuckoffplz)
Why are we building modern technologies on top of ancient stuff ? Scalable ? Manageable ? Readable ? Anything ?5
Always learning new technologies, solutions, and stuff, never afraid to leave my comfort zone, and learning from my or others' mistakes.
SharePoint. Never used it directly but this far every project that the company has done with it results in us having to rewrite it using traditional technologies several months later.
What do you do when you are applying on a job that you know... that you have minimum (xampp) knowledge of the technologies that they used(lamp)?1
Implementing an Audio File preview for Voice Records for one of our clients. The system we are reading names the files by IDs date length etc. And every value separated by #.
Why the hell you name a file like this: 12345#20171204#523.wav
We are implementing the tool with web technologies and this is not just ugly filenaming but also very url unfriendly.
What technologies would u suggest for a web based project that'll do some data scraping, data preprocessing and also incorporate a few ML models.
I've done data scraping in php but now I want to move on and try something new....
Planning to use AWS to host it.
Thanks in advance :)5
What do you expect when you go to college to study programming? Tones of interesting tasks and learning up-to-date technologies and languages?
Nope, I have been studying Pascal for 4 years already... Can I write in my resume "senior Pascal"?
I've always loved to change technologies to work with...I developed Desktop applications, Web applications, android applications...and now I'm working on an IOS app and I have just one message to whoever came up with the brilliant idea of a drag & drop system for views in XCode:
I DO NOT RESPECT YOU AS A HUMAN BEING.
Gotta challenge myself to complete a simple Flutter app because I keep hopping between technologies without accomplished anything.5
I have just started my career.
In which technologies / languages should I invest my time? Thanks5
We offer you to join our A-team and be an important contributor in an exciting agile web development team using the latest web technologies to develop our new front end using AngularJS.1
Me: Ordinary wordpress *completes wordpress site within 3 days*
Me: *after learning several technologies* Spent a whole day customizing a Lightbox modal in wordpress. 😌1
I'm working as a senior software developer at my company.
My seniors are asking me to take the scrum master role.
Is it good for my professional development.
Will I be cut off from the technologies that I work on now. I don't want to leave development. Can I do both at once?5
Seriously these technologies are already fucking available.. ! xD
Such a sugarcoated motherfucker ! xD
Read this article for enough cringe in your life :D7
So I've been given a task to monitor a whole lot of logs of some servers (whole university ~ 10+ departments). The technologies are diverse so I'm cramming everything into elasticsearch via logstash (and filebeat), viewing it into kibana. Any recommendations for what should be the 'useful' stuff to be viewed into dashboard? I guess:
- Overall traffic wtih respect to previous days/weeks
- Most viewed domains
- Failed logins?
- Dropped connections?
- Critical-load of systems? 90%+2
Is it worthy to spend so much time solving hacker rank, codility, code chef challenges or just learning new technologies and becoming good a t it? At the end, where should we put our energy on?2
- Get to expert level on all my preferred technologies
- Get to travel after graduation
- Strive for a better position at current company
- Contribute to interesting open-source projects
- Hope to not go insane in the process
I'm actually looking for a new job.
A friend of mine: "I heard that company X is looking for informaticians."
Me: "And what is the job exactly? Do you know which languages/technologies they are asking for?"
Friend: "Fixing computers/printers problems and form employer on how to use product Y"
Me: "No way."
Me: "..." (Long explanation on the difference between developer and technical support)
I should have understood when she said "informatician" instead of "developer"..1
The fun part of my job is showing off my age to make the point that they need to build new things in new technologies. Typical interaction goes something like this.
Person: When we started X project, we were using the state of the art technologies. We can just use that again.
Me: And when was that?
P: About 2012
Me: I was a freshman in high school.9
WEP security on a brand new wifi rollout. Do it for the legacy because no one knew the scanner gun (like target or walmart has) could operate on WPA Personal or even....802.1x Kerberos Security login. At least it was *something* but the whole place was on windows xp and server 2003.
It is 2016. Lets learn our technologies and read the manuals.
Get to work
Ci went crazy
Slack is on fire
Some npm modules deprecated approach
Rewrite docker files
Some other npm modules disappeared.
I hate you web technologies, I hate you developers who make releases Friday night.
I hate everything.
Ffs on the weekend just build Ikea fornitures instead of fiddling with my stack!
Is there somewhere an overview article/guide on the most popular software associated with web development? There are just so many technologies I know nothing about - Gulp, Grunt, Docker, Webpack, Bower and who knows what else..
Everyone seems to be using something else and it's just total chaos for me.2
Working with technologies that excite me, which at the moment would be functional programming, CQRS, Event Sourcing, and the actor model, with a side of machine learning and serverless architectures. At a company that is large enough to pay well and grow in, but small enough that my contributions are recognized and appreciated. Or even better, one that I own and run.
Working on cool emerging technologies such as VR, AI or robotics. Or all of them combined. International environment with developers from all over the world. I find myself working at different locations, yet I'd spend all weekends and holidays at home. 6 K €/month + all travel and lodging expenses paid. Plus a culture that encourages innovation and, of course, ranting! :D5
So many meet-up groups discussing "cool" technologies when I really need is a data structure and algorithms support group.
I thought I would be working on a cool web project, learning the best of the current technologies and techniques available. Turns out I'll be working on a JSON that the code will automatically render it on the UI through common components. I haven't touched any line of code so far. But hey, the indentation on my JSON looks nice.5
I really can't deal with people that work with programming but is ignorant towards it and new technologies. My internship supervisor told me that I shouldn't use Entity Framework, and write all the queries manually because it's their way of doing it. They don't even know what MVC is. They implied that I was doing it all the wrong way, just because they are not interested in learning something new, which isn't even that new.1
When you rebuild the whole product and instead of using state-of-the-art technologies, almost everything is written by ourselves or old technologies.
JSF instead of REST + vue.js or similar
Self written DB-access instead of Spring/Hibernate
No Jenkins etc, instead write scripts to build it....
It's time for a job change I think2
-Coworkers who know when to listen and when to give advice
-Problems that are difficult to stretch me but not frustrate me
-A language with good documentation or tutorials
-a product that I'm passionate about
-a ping pong table to help me stay awake
-a environment that encourages learning new technologies
TL;DR, which is the best JS templating library?
I've been using React for a while since I like the library's ideology and how simple designing templates is. But for the sake of future technologies, I've been wondering if I could get out of React and start coding with native JS.
The only problem is constructing the DOM, which gets super ugly with vanillaJS. So, I want to ask the experienced members of devRant which library would best suit my use case.6
Today I started a new study. It's a study focussed on all kinds of technologies. AR, VR, Illustration, photo, video, motion capture & so much much more.
We immediately got an assignment to prepare a presentation about a skill we already have. They chose me to go first.
A question for Web developers:
I'm planing to start working on a web part of my project. Important part is that it's supposed to be working with MongoDB. The idea is to build a small digital library, so the main functionalities should be user registering, his login, querying database for books, showing list of results and viewing pdf files up to 200MB size.
Please note that this is a school project on which I'm working after my job, and not something to be deployed to customers.
Have you ever envied someone that they know more technologies than you? (e.g they know a couple of frameworks that you don't have any idea about)
If you do, what is your response in this situation and why?4
I joined a company who works in fintech technologies and I have almost zero knowledge of the field... Where should I begin?3
In the past 3 months I worked on a new frontend project at work using "new things" like vue.js and webpack including Babel polyfills on production for the first time. Now the project is almost done an I've been sent on to other tasks on our older projects to help follow the deadline at these projects.
It is a hard cut to switch my head back to the old legacy code after this long time only working with the new stuff and technologies. I feel much less productive at the moment, because I know how much time I could safe if I just could use the new technologies. But there is now way around this. Finally I now have to maintain Symfony 1.2 and jQuery again instead of building new awesome stuff in this exiting new technologies.1
I wanna cool robot sidekick,
The more irritable the better, like bender from futurama or K2 from rogue one. (Even murderous maniac of a an ai like hal9000 and skynet is fine)
The machine learning technologies aren't just there yet though, they can be irritable but not because of their smart ass answers just the opposite really.
I will need a team with 100+ people that are experts in neurology AND machine learning. Also 10 years.. we will get there !1
Anyone have books or blogs about microservices and APIs they like?
I spent so much time focusing on front end frameworks and technologies and now I'm having to teach myself RESTful API structures and micro service stuff. I should have spent more time on this earlier on...6
I am being moved from one team to another in short periods of time. Just when I start getting comfortable in the technology in one product and decide that this is my life now, they put me in something else where I have to learn from scratch. Been a junior developer for 2 years now.
!rant because I love it that I get to learn different technologies. Also the opportunities to travel.
Anybody seen the The "Boring Software" manifesto? what do you think?
As software developers we are tired of the false claims made by evangelists of the latest and greatest technology. We will no longer confront them with their lack of understanding of computer science fundamentals, nor will we defend our lack of knowledge of their hyped and volatile technologies.

[Equifax Recruiter] - Hi, we have an exciting opportunity for you here at Equifax! Innovative... blah blah... J2EE... blah blah... latest technologies... blah blah... greenfield... blah... CORBA... (ok, there wasn't any CORBA)

I always see job posts for:
• PHP & mySQL
Would you consider applying for these when you don't like these technologies? Why? I need your advice & wisdom guys. Thank you so much!3
The integration of technologies project I have this year. Not yet finished but I already learned a lot of very cool stuff.
First, I learned a new programming language + framework (Ruby on Rails)
Second, for the first time, I implemented a continuous deployment pipeline with Capistrano and Travis ci.
Third, first time I programmed a Restful API.
And more cool stuff coming up ! :D
I freaking love learning !
wk50 will be fun! Developing 3 new projects. 2 real ones and 1 mockup to show a client how our product will improve his daily life. All based on newest web technologies.
I'm sick of managers treating the project I work on as a joke. First, a junior colleague, and now a junior QA. I'm the the most experienced and I'm only mid level dev. It's a very cool project with interesting technologies but I have no time to tutor people...
Sent a CV for a full-stack C# role. The CV is mainly a mix of working in ASMX/WCF, SQL, SSRS, SSIS, Distributed transaction architectures then with about 40% ASP.NET focusing on server side but also with some client side technologies and that I sometimes use Illustrator for creating/manipulating SVGs.
Was told I am too "front-end"2
My Web Technologies teacher.
The guy is an ass for a teacher. He loses of track of what he is teaching while he is teaching.
Although he tries his best to give live examples while teaching but most of the times he is doing it for the first time and they don't work so our 90 minute lecture turns to shit where we couldn't learn anything he taught or something else we wanted to learn.
Today my unixstickers propack arrived finally!🤑
Telling the truth I am not evnolved in any of these technologies 🤣. I am an SAP/ABAP consultant with one year of experience and I don't feel I am going to put these over my Thinkpad🤔
Maybe it's time to get some devRant stickers, I really love them☺️5
I have experience worth 5 years built simple and complex web apps but using php and laravel.
I feel i should have used top tier technologies.8
With the new technologies & trends right now, how do you convince yourself not to ride the HYPE train or the bandwagon?
* I have friends from different companies who talked to me about their stack, like "We're using INSERT_JS_FRAMEWORK_OR_LIBRARY_HERE ... It's very cool."
A simple advice or a thought would do.1
I keep an eye on new popular technologies. In particular, I try to spot it's primary use case.
Then whenever I start a new personal project I pick whichever technology that suits it best (even ones I have never used before) and do everything I can to make it work.
I would recommend to check:
+ The technologies used if it suit to you
+ Make a trial to get into the env.
+ What they provide as advantage (food, flexible time, home-office, etc...)
+ How old is the company (avoid fresh startup and the I have an amazing app idea)
+ The renown of the company on kununu
+ Why not ask some customers how they experience to work with the company
Tech lead on three projects last year, a Java hard client, a WDF driver, and the front/backend of a NodeJS app.
I'm sick of jumping across all these paradigms and technologies.
Does anyone else have to deal with this.1
Coz a question like this in SO will get me banned......
I know HTML, CSS, JS, React in frontend.
I know Java as backend including database connectivity and all.
Should i learn a more demanding backend language lile PHP?
Or should I further learn frontend technologies like Angular, D3.js, and other frameworks?15
Reading about technologies I know on IDG owned news sites make me cringe and yet I trust them for news on technologies I don't know.1
Imagine you own the startup that becomes the next Red Hat--you're using Linux and open source technologies and selling support. Your company ends up being the most influential force on the Linux community.
What is the first command you make for Linux/open source technologies?6
Staying in my previous position as long as I did. I was underpaid, underutilized, and stuck using an aging subset of technologies.
I start projects by researching the latest technologies and architectures and learning them, and usually decide to start over with something even newer pretty soon after. No wonder I never finish anything 😋
I'm learning new technologies! Last time I finished Android course, now I'm going to learn a bit more about MEAN 😄 it's so exciting finding new perspectives of programming 😊4
Just a small question: how do you guys handle documentation, version control, what technologies do you use (programming languages and frameworks if any)?3
Best: working on a cool xamarin project for a few months with a very cool client which made me a better dev;
Worst: working on a shitty legacy web - a clusterfuck of technologies, crappy workarounds and even shittier clients for the rest of the year;
What's your prediction on when Apple will have a great fall, with recent failures of mobiles technologies?2
Question for you fellow ranters. I need to learn some new tech. But sitting down to learn new tech can be tedious. Don't get me wrong I love coding, but I do it 45 - 50 hours a week at. Reserving 10 hours per week to commute and 42 hours for sleep. Leaves me with ~60 hours for everything else. How do you motivate yourself to learning new languages and technologies in your free time?3
I try to find new stuff which is related to what I already know or is close. I like learning new technologies and techniques 😄. By this I continuously gain more knowledge thereby making me a better developer.
Something that provides for my SO and I, pushes me to learn more, has realistic deadlines, and uses modern technologies with good standards.
Plus, the standards use tabs, not spaces 😜2
In your opinion, what is the mostly preferable scenario at a hackathon: to build a product using well-known technologies or to learn something new?2
mkdir ChuckTesta or MyTestProject or something similar.
I always like to use a sandbox beforehand to experiment with technologies and get familiar with them before committing to an actual project repo.
Looking for some guidance on a final year college research project:
I was going to look into hacking drones/toy helicopters/those Fitbit watch things or whatnot, but I'm not sure if it would go down well! Some technologies I'm looking to explore through this project include reverse engineering, machine learning and container technologies (docker, rkt) if that helps?
Am I along the right lines or should I take a different approach with different topics? If so, an update on what's "hot" or upcoming at the moment would be helpful.
Having my own office, or working from home, and having the ability to learn new technologies on the clock. Also have my ideas being heard.
Create and release a complete app (or join a open source protect) instance of learning new technologies :/
Not learning web quicker, it's now the most growing thing and there are so many technologies and frameworks and I haven't had enough time to go over them. However, the only problem is some of these frameworks last a little while and die out so it's not all that bad.1
I have a school project that starts in 2 weeks.
Is it normal to ask us to make a report for Monday with the technologies we want to use knowing that we have no information about this project and we still have exams for 1 week ...6
Am I reasonable rejecting a job which is about building an accounts interface system which will interface with different services build with different technologies and manage the accounts, all in Visual Basic?
On my side I don't feel pleasant to put effort and will on such a language on my CV.8
So features and work are slowing down in the pipeline at a new job I took. Is it okay to just spend the time in between "work" to do tutorials on other technologies?7
For a first job, is it better to have a large company backing you, or going to a startup?
I realise being in a startup means more exposure to different technologies, but how would each impact future job prospects?2
Not a rant, but a question: I'm currently learning to develop for the web through freecodecamp. They decided some time ago to change their curriculum from Angular to React, kinda moving away from the MEAN set of technologies. Now that Angular 2 is out and looking good, I'm not sure if I should stick to their curriculum or learn it in place of React. What do you guys think?5
I've worked at a small company for about three years now with four years in the field of web-based technologies. I feel like I need someone to talk to about my skillset/professional status so I can know where I stand amongst my peers. Are there any particular people I can talk to about this?2
When you love programming so much that you keep learning new technologies! But your company doesn't even installed Chrome or Firefox
I've just discovered Jade and Stylus, making webpages for my projects might actually be awesome again!
I'm curious what other people's experiences have been with these two technologies?1
It's March, hopefully I'll be able to focus on one thing at a time and stop jumping between technologies.
I've used JavaEE/jQuery/pure JS for so long, I'm crying out for some side projects using different frameworks/technologies.
Brush up on languages/technologies the company is using/what the job post is for. Say what u like/dislike about those technologies. Most importantly, know that even though you will have many bad days, it only takes 1 good day for none of those to matter!!
I am proceeding towards a DevOps job but I am not clear what are the responsibilities if this role and how it will affect my long term career.
I don't want to alienate myself from development technologies and I do not want to end up doing some boring documentation of software.
Any guidance will be appreciated :)1
I have been 70% focused on front-end development technologies (HTML, CSS, JS,and related frameworks) and 30% on back-end web technologies (PHP, SQL mainly). I enjoy making websites and web apps that look good, but also understand the need for back-end functionality.
Having to implement my own component from scratch because none of the existing solutions fit my requirements and taste. Oh, and also being stuck with developing the "traditional way" because it seems to me that the learning curve of frontend technologies is quite steep, and I have other things to do!
Need to make a web app to some finantial stuff. I choosed ROR becuase is what i knwo. But for sure i want to learn somo other technologies as Laravel or Phoenix
Front End: i feel that it's the most challenging and everchanging topic out there nowdays, plus you can learn a whole stack of technologies almost everyday
Being assigned to projects using technologies I don't know about. I love the company I'm working for3
"Then you get a message saying the software is no longer supported, but that's ok"
Outdated technologies ftw
I am going to make e commerce website . What technologies should I use? Is vue.js is good? And back end is pho
Wanting to move towards being a more competent all-round (fullstack ish) developer. Historically I’ve focussed on WordPress builds and front-end technologies and have some experience building and maintaining LAMP stacks and servicing servers (SSL installs, upgrading and updating apache etc.)
Any thoughts on what technologies I should be looking at getting under my belt?4
Has anyone seen a good use case for robotic process automation (RPA)? Seems to me like a new buzzword for 90's screen scraping technologies?!
As a graduate, is it better to start off at small companies so you get better exposure to a wider range of technologies?1
Is Pokemon GO programmed using cross-platform technologies or is it natively coded to both Android in Java and in Swift for iOS?5
Fuck JSF! Like seriously! And fuck my internet technologies prof for making us code this horseshit on fucking paper in the goddamn examn! Seriously go fuck yourself and your medieval technologies with a rusty Russian submarine! FUCKING HELL!
What is the best searching algorithm for big data technologies like Machine learning and Neural networks?
