"Engineers don't memorize documentation. They know how to use it."
Programming felt insurmountable to me before I started with it. This phrase blew my mind and changed my approach entirely.3
2 of my co-workers don't know that they shouldn't write any code after return statement of a function18
T-Mobile AT was asked, why they store passwords in plain text, and in a long discussion, they answered this (see img)
I don't know, if this is a late april fool...25
You know what I hate? When people don't listen to me.
You know what I love? When shit blows up in their faces because they didn't listen to me8
So many people are applying for computer science majors that it's making me nervous.
My classmates don't know shit about tech yet almost all of them are applying for CS. It's even the most popular ranked major in the US.
I don't think I stand a chance against them. They all have higher GPAs than me, and they participate in clubs and sports.
If those cave people get accepted I'm not going to be too happy about it.64
I got two motivations to improve myself
1. To earn more
2. To distance myself from stupid people who don't know what they are doing14
What my Clients don't know:
I turn my 2nd 27inch screen in portrait orientation before they come in. And turn it back when they leave.
Somehow it impresses them.2
Don't know what is worst: that they offer to teach Visual Basic on 2018, or that they "invented" Visual Java.
I know this kid who says he hates mark Zuckerberg and Facebook did bad things.
Then I see him using messenger and asked him why he used it when he knows about what they are doing with his data.
He said "they aren't going to do any thing with my info. They only look at important people's info"
I don't know what to say...8
My client tells me there's a new bug with to-www-redirects. He yells they don't work properly anymore and tries to blame me. But fact is I know, they are well configured in the Nginx conf and therefore work like a charm.
I told him I fixed it and charged an hour. Motherfucker.
Guns should be illegal. Otherwise I swear I'll end up shooting someone the next time they ask me to "implement this feature, it will only take 5 mins".
Those who don't know programming should keep their "expert advice" to themselves6
Anyone else notice this trend:
1. Don't go to uni / drop out (who needs education).
2. Get a job in IT, it pays well (who cares you don't have a structured logic).
3. Learn need-to-know stuff only (I only need to know my code).
4. Tell others they should get into programming, it's not that hard.
5. Get asked about the workings of a computer, but that's not in your domain of work. "I only code".
Millennial much ?17
I don't know why people call themselves "Developers" when they really just download a WordPress theme and adds bunch of plugins without touching a single line of code.
What the hell is going on?10
No Mr. Uber, I don't want anyone even my family to know when I am riding nor I want to know when they ride.3
3 days on the job...
Told on the interview I didn't know the machine OS but I could learn in a few days...
Well they want someone with experience on that machines I don't know...
There are more companies13
Every fucking time its the same shit:
Our nontechnical managers meet with the client and try to pass technical requirements to us..
These pieces of shit don't get that this only makes things worse.
Making everyone waste fucking time trying to understand requirements that would be a lot fucking easier if any of us were is any fucking meeting.
But nooooo... We have to fucking be the whole team in fucking meetings with these cock suckers so they can realize they didn't get shit and the back and forth bullshit begins:
We ask questions
They don't know
They schedule meeting with client
They ask their moronic way
The client answers
They schedule meeting with us
We ask questions...
And this fucking loop goes on for-fucking-EVER!
You know the Microsoft guy who installed Chrome because Edge crashed.
Don't judge him that much!
The guys at Google use Microsoft's VSCode for their Firebase. Also they use Typescript.
Our company (if any) shouldn't determine the tools we use. I haven't used Edge, but they recently added full Css Grid support. I'm gonna give it a try for a week or two...14
Don't apply for a job that you don't like. You're gonna hate your life.
Don't ask for a salary you know you're not worth.
Work in a tech company as much as possible. If you don't, you're gonna be treated as a powerpoint presentation expert, office installation expert, video editor/movie maker expert, IT support guy, loose plug/broken headset repairman, facebook hacker, and a dark magician all at once. Most (not all) tech companies know who you are better. They understand your needs better.7
When your classmates don't even know how to code HTML and CSS effectively but they want to learn how to hack...
They think hacking is about breaking into other people's computers and stuff... sigh... the people I have to deal with...14
How tf does these even make sense?! That's a fucking sledgehammer and large metal chisel on fucking steroids. If your parents don't know what the fuck those are and realize they have nothing to do with fixing a relatively flimsy box (in comparison) they probably need more than their WiFi fixed, but since they managed to fucking raise you, I doubt they're that dumb. I get that parents might not always understand technology, but shit, at least respect the fact that they survived without the Internet, which you probably couldn't do...3
The company i work for has a jenkins server (for people that don't know jenkins, it's an automated build service that gets the latest git updates, pulls them and then builds, tests and deploys it)
Because it builds the software, people were scared to update it so we were running version 1.x for a long time, even when an exploit was found... Ooh boy did they learn from that...
The jenkins server had a hidden crypto miner running for about 5 days...
I don't know why we don't have detectors for that stuff... (like cpu load being high for 15 minutes)
I even tried to strengthen our security... You know basic stuff LIKE NOT SAVING PASSWORDS TO A GOOGLE SPREADSHEET! 😠
But they shoved it asside because they didn't have time... I tried multiple times but in the end i just gave up...13
My friends with non tech background thinks that I am hacking into NSA or something but they don't know I am just downloading the package lists by running sudo apt-get update. 😂5
"Can you do this?"
Sure, give me the information I need...
"We don't have all of it yet"
So I can't do it then
"Well when can you do it"
When you get the information
"Do you need *all* of it"
Well, it's either I do half a job and waste my time, or get it all done in one shot
"The client wants it tomorrow"
When will we have the information?
"We don't know"
Well they aren't having it tomorrow then, are they...
Sales people... don't care *how* things work, as long as they get a tick against their name to show they've sold something...3
A couple of years back...
Friend: You know the way people download game mods?
Friend: Let's put some on a disk so we can sell them and they don't have to download stuff.
I don't recall responding to this.1
When your client thinks they will get a quicker response by emailing you the same email to multiple addresses, they don't know I have a filter that sends them straight to the shithead folder skipping the inbox! Bye bye problem.1
Today six friends of mine were fired, they didn't know about it, while they were working HR called them and fired them, CEO talked to me explaining reasons of their decision, trying to convince me. I don't care about reasons, its not about reasons, its about behaviors, people are not resources.17
My grandparents have a high end gaming PC with LEDs and all, for, you know, playing solitaire and "to browser internet faster"
I feel like they got scammed by the sales person
Don't the guys who sell computers have any moral?6
I asked my manager for a compensation adjustment today since my peers at the same tenure and experience as me were making $30,000 more than me. They said no since I haven't worked on any big projects yet and the projects that were big enough, I didn't do it by myself so they don't count.
I'm not sure if they know how software teams work... I'm pretty sure we make software for TEAMs...6
*Whenever there's a big hacking thing that happened in cyberspace and the media gets the footage*
"Hey! You! you the website developer. Can you like get a hoodie and smash the keyboard."
"Big virus leak"
"But that's not ha.."
"SHUT THE FUCK UP AND GET THE HOODIE ALREADY"5
You know one of the things I love about this community is?
We have such a diverse group of people and even when those who don't speak English natively, they try to on the app as much as possible keeping it consistent. Even when they make some mistakes, no one's a dick about it (from what I've seen), which is awesome!13
S = Some person I know
Me = Me
S: Hey, I heard you also do [software/web development].. I was hoping to get some advice from you about some advanced level HTML and CSS for my classes.
//or that if I could teach him something
Me: What do you study?
S: Oh, I teach.
Me: 😯 Really? What do you teach?
S: Oh, just some basic HTML and CSS with Notepad to about 50-60 students.
Me: (;﹏;) That's great.
/*this is a shortened version of a very long conversation*/
They teach some basic HTML and CSS like <table> and <marquee> and stuff. They also teach C++ and Tally ERP.
Also, he and some other person made their small intuitions' website but they don't know how to put it online. They made it in, as far as I understand, simple HTML and CSS USING NOTEPAD (Don't know if they used JS or something else). That's.. really courageous or something... ? I don't know, I couldn't have a look at it because they have it on their local computer and don't know what Git is.
I showed him some better alternatives and ways that they could use (editors, version control, db, etc.) to improve their curriculum and answered his questions, and I told him that I'll try to help in any way I can if they ever need me.
This also made me realize how much I've learned and grown since I first started learning C in school. Still, I've got so much more that I need and want to learn.
//Always keep learning
PS. What would you've told him if you had been in my place?1
When I worked as an IT student and was asked what we could do to ensure the destruction of data on old drives. I suggested lighting the office on fire while blindly firing guns into the inferno. To this day I don't know why they laughed.3
Everyone says that programmers, engineers, etc are boring and don't know how to have fun, they don't go out, etc.
Well, I just lost my glasses last night cuz I was drunk as shit lol.9
Our front-end team is pissed at me because they found a feature I pushed last month and claimed they didn't know it existed and how can they help clients if they don't know what's going on with the platform and - I pointed them to the Pivotal story of the feature that they were included in as well as the full changelog announcement I made to the entire team the day I pushed it.
Knowledge is power, especially when it's in writing with a timestamp.5
An un-rant on Universities. (UC Irvine)
A lot of my friends and I are about to graduate 👨🎓 from UCI, with Computer Science degrees.
Most of them are complaining that they don't know any current frameworks, and all that we learned is outdated.
And that pretty much any bootcamper knows more tools that any of us do.
I totally disagree. I don't think it's the university's job to teach you tools (node, tencerflow, ...), rather, I think they made us into programming Swiss Army knifes. I can pick up any framework (I wanna be a web dev) real easy, and when shit breaks down, I can easily figure out the issue.
I think that's the major difference between Computer Scientists and Bootcampers/Programmers. We know "why", while they know "how".
What do you think? Is the current price of a CS degree worth it?22
Teacher: what is 1 + 1?
kid : I don't know
Teacher: Ok! you have one man and one women, how many are there?
Kid: There was my mom and dad, when they add up we become three.
I honestly don't get too mad when people aks me to do things like install programs for them. This is not my dayjob, but when you think of it, they're right when they say "you are a programmer so you must know how to do that". We do know how to do that. When you have a question about plants and you know a farmer, you are going to ask the farmer, even though he is not a gardener. He will know. Just as we know how to use computers very well.2
Coworker: "Yeah, I know the code module is 25K lines of code, but don't try to break it up. At some point I realized that they just have to be that big."
I work with junior developers, guiding them and teaching them on a daily basis.. my biggest pet peeve?
When they finish typing code and without testing it ask: "Is this right?"
HOW THE FUCK DO I KNOW? Seriously! I don't know what all your specs are, maybe try running it before asking??
Some people say they use dark themes because it looks cool, but we all know it's for when you're up late programming and don't want your eyes shot to pieces.13
Let's do photorealism they said,
It'll look beautiful they said,
Fuck it, we're going with low poly. I'm not rendering one fucking tree, for three god damn hours!
(That's presuming that it doesn't crash during that period)
And yes I know it doesn't actually look that photorealistic, but hey, give me a break I just started. Plus I don't even wanna know how long it would take to render if it was done to look really fancy.13
I don't know how anyone could write complex programs with C (though they apparently used to and still many do)11
I hate Apple and I hate all their products and I hate everyone that thinks Apple is "innovating" and I don't know why so many developers use OSX when they can use Linux. A closed source company with a closed mind.43
When they don't know about the concept of MVP (minimum viable product), expects everything to be perfect at v1.0 and wants it to be done ASAP #FML2
Do you just walk in the city and tell yourself, "fck these humans. they don't know sht."? I know that's wrong but still...4
Not dev related but still a rant:
My company decided that all the network traffic should go throu a virus scanner. But they don't know what the fuck they are doing, so now EVERY valid SSL cert gets rejected by our browsers because the virus-scanner breaks the SSL encryption.
Anyone open for a pishing attack?8
Clients don't know what they want!
Was handed a detailed report and asked if I could create a webpage to dynamically generate the same thing from our database. Sure its ez ps lemon squeezy.
Simple page and database query. Boom, done. Exactly matched what they gave me.
They ask why some of the data isn't there. Uh well you cunts it wasn't on the original report...so it's not there obviously.1
Just had a company meeting. Basicly the company blamed all devs that they are losing money. Is it normal? It's my first workplace so I simply don't know. It felt bad, they low key threatened to firing lowest performing people. And said they will look at everyone's performance individually and eveluate if they are earning money from each person.7
Ranting here , about our fucked up life is like talking to a cat. You don't know if they are listening, you don't know if they care, but for some reason, it still helps ...3
F*ck all that out-of-date people who are like "You can not get a living out of IT" and the "You work on that application 6 months now, it should be already done." My parents do that shit aaaaall the time. Like they know so much about this when they can't even turn on wifi on their phones. You're enthusiastic and all and they come and start bullying you because they don't understand shit about what you do.7
I love it how managers try to act busy by going through the same mails over and over again while waiting for a new one so that they can instantly reply to it and show themselves off as "prompt" and screw us, who have to actually do some work, about not sending mails promptly and they have like this one single excel sheet opened at all times and they just make one obscure entry whenever they get an update and WOW, some of them don't even know how the fuck you spell Avro (spelt it as avero, handwritten) and oh, not to mention waste everyone's time by asking a mundane question that other managers are so eager to answer, one by one, over and over and did I mention THAT THEY DON'T EVEN KNOW HALF THE PRODUCT.
Me at the start of making first Wordpress theme: "I don't know why people complain about this?! It's great fun and easy!"
Me a week into developing said WordPress theme: "Damn it, they were right."1
Java is kind of like teenage sex--everyone is always talking about it, but in reality they don't even know what they're talking about.
What the literal fuck? This is an ad targeting devs. They don't even know what a fucking programming language is.
That moment when your developer friends talk about some new programming language and all you can do is just nod your head because you don't have a clue.
PS. They will definitely read this rant and know the next time, I just nod my head :D1
This is what I love about fellow devs - they know what's best, you don't need to ask something like "please keep adding xyz to your post so we can see if it...". We just do it. :32
When you face the dilemma of wanting to share devRant with your friends but face giving up your anonymity....also, what if you forget you ranted about them and they find out? Hmmm.....4
Went to a job interview for ASP.net even though I don't know ASP.net since they asked me to come. I got the job since I was the only candidate that knew what OOP is.
I don't really want to work there.5
You know how in sci-fi movies they just "throw" documents and windows from computer to tablet
Why don't we have fancy stuff like that10
It wasn't me in the interview and it wasn't really an interview at all but here we go. I worked for a pretty shit company this past summer as a paid internship and while I was there they fired a Dev because he complained about how he didn't get a BMW i8 and they had to hire new help. So instead of doing a regular interview what they did was call people in and just have them work. Like no joke from 7-4pm they just did the job the didn't get yet. They also expected them to know how to work in there system. It was a WordPress development company and they had custom plugins and themes that they just expected people to know.
Also they said they would pay them for their work but I don't think they did, there were maybe 8 different people over a week who probably just worked for free.1
Don't trust people. Especially if they say: "No Problem, I'll invest enough time to make x happen"
But in general. Don't trust people until you know them very well.2
Why the fuck do people learn a framework if they don't even know the fucking most basic knowledge about the language.
Every fucking JS dev should know what the fucking toString result of a function object is! Thats like second page JS book stuff.
Even for Facebook groups this is a horrible question.5
Someone told me a teacher wants to meet us at the library at 3:00pm. I went there and there was a yellow van with some of my friends and a teacher. Then
T = Teacher
M = Me
F = Friend
T: Your name is not on the list.
M: What list?
T: You didn't attend yesterday's meeting.
M: I don't know there was a meeting yesterday.
T: No excuses.
T: No excuses(slightly louder). I gave a message yesterday.
M: I didn't even receive the message. How do I...(even know about the meeting)
T: *interrupts* Your name is not on the list. You don't have permission from the administrators to go. You cannot go.
F: He doesn't usually attend the meetings.
(I don't even know the existence of the meetings before, no one told me)
T: You must attend the meeting next time.
M: When? What time?
T: I will send a message if we have any meetings.
M: *Flat-toned* Okay then. *keeps minimal facial expression then walk away steadily*
Inner me: What an ignorant teacher. She should at least listen to my REASONING, not treating them like empty excuses. I don't even know where they are going, I don't even have the intention to join them. Then she thought that it's my fault. I don't know what I don't know.3
As time goes on.. I see my friends, whom I studied programming with, just stop learning new things.
They think, or just behave, like they know everything worth knowing.
You can't talk to them about programming outside of work anymore. They just say that programming is "something you do at work".
I used to look-up to those people, and learn a lot from them. Now, they don't care enough to Google "what's this Rust thing people talk about?".
That really saddens me.2
Today I went to a computer store to buy laptop with my friend. When we were waiting for the store technicians to check the laptop for my friend, we found out that nearly all technicians (about 4, 5) of the computer store don't know how to enter BIOS setup for the laptop :/ How the fuck they become the store technicians if they don't fucking know how to access BIOS setup of a laptop? (one of them even suggested to use a screwdriver (wtf?) to access the BIOS the new laptop o.O)
Don't know what will they do with my friend's new laptop if I didn't tell them how to enter BIOS
(It's a Lenovo laptop, the combination to enter BIOS is fn+f2 and the store we bought the laptop is a large store in our city)3
How do I know the email is from twitter?
Easy, just check for https and if the links *contain* twitter.com. and the browser shows a padlock, its legit!
I don't like these type of security tips.
Do they don't know SSL can be obtained for free
And twitter.com.somedomain.com can trick people too.
I think Twitter should update there security *tip* in the world where SSL is free and anybody can make a twitter.com sub domain. This can cause some trouble.6
Stages of being a self-taught developer.
first: you think you have taught yourself enough to apply for a job.
second: A Company actually believes you. Evidence? They hire you.
Third: You realize you don't know anything.Evidence?
Me in my head
I thought I was good at this. I don't know anything. I should probably switch back to nutrition(my previous job).Why am I struggling with this? Who even struggles this much with APIs??8
Someone just overwrote 2 weeks of work in SVN because they don't understand merging.
When they did an update before committing they ignored the conflicts and tried to build their work.
But wait it won't build if their are conflicts, I know I'll just copy this backup over the checkout and check that in instead.
It took me over an hour tho fix this fucktard's mistake and I still don't think they understand what they did wrong. Their supposed to have 40+ years of experience.
In the end it turned out they wanted to change about 10 lines. They had checked in files that they didn't even change, they were just out of date compared to trunk.4
Ever had people asking you to fix their smart phones because " you know computers" and then you go with " you have a broken scream and no sound , I'm a Software engineer , explain to me how can I fix it "
Then they respond " I don't know , you are the expert , aren't you ?2
Why do some people have to be so self-centered?
They asked for my help with a logo. I said I will help even without any charges. I know they don't want to spend money. And that's why I frankly said I can help free. But then they said they will feel bad then and ask for my quotation. Ok, I sent.
They said "Sorry it is too high, can you give 60% discount?" Ok, sure.
Then they asked if they can get it in 4 days. Ok, I said.
Then they said they changed the name just now.
At least give me a fucking ounce of respect.2
When sales starts selling a "concept" feature to a client because someone showed them a mockup of it in Photoshop. They say "don't worry they know it's going to take a month or two". A week later .. When are we getting that feature? 😑2
This was a comment I made on another ranter's post.
* Tailor your resume (and cover letter if needed) according to the job. No generic resume.
* Research about the company and make sure you have the same interests as the company. Clearly let them know why they should hire you. One question you can expect is: Why should we hire you?
* Show them that you're passionate about the job.
* Be curious. Ask questions. That's how they'll know you're interested.
* Be open to opportunities. Let's say you're applying for Full Stack developer role. Be open to take up Front End or Back End developer role. You don't have to accept everything but at least roles tangent to your job (provided they match your interest).
* Be flexible but focused.
* You don't have to know every listed requirement but make sure to know the majority.
* Don't lie. "Fake it till you make it" doesn't work with dev roles.
* Be confident in telling them "you don't know" if you don't know. Also make sure to tell you're willing to learn that.4
Never put a thing on your CV that you don't actually know. I've seen many people put a lot of languages that they don't really know, just to impress the interviewer and get rejected.
Also, be confident..... even when you are bluffing.4
So your friend wants you to make the next big Facebook or Google because they know you can code....lots of rants like that and it gets me as well when I'm fixing printers for family and friends. Thing is these people genuinely just want to do something cool and succeed so they can have a good life. They see what we can do and wish they had the same talent. They have an idea they think will be great, they don't know what we know, and they don't know that it could be the most amazing thing ever and still never take off.
They don't realize to be Facebook or Google you have to sell out your values, morals, and soul. They just think if we can code we should be millionaires. So on that philosophy after just over a year the devRant creators should be rolling in cash right? But pretty sure I saw they are still operating at a loss.
I'd love to be able to have the time to work with each of them, teach them, and guide them through that first failure and let down of realizing that coding doesn't buy a magic ticket to a new life.
// Like anyone ever really fixes a printer //3
Every time the support suggest that I update and then restart my computer, I can't help it but think:
"oh crap they don't know shit about what causes this bug 🐛"1
Got told by a senior engineer to basically fuck off with my standard library containers like vector because they are used by people who dont know how to write code in c++ and don't know how to handle pointers.
Am I wrong for trying to use as much possible code from the standard library?13
Doing a project with someone and find out that they don't know how to use GIT. He copied the file he worked on, put it somewhere else (using the Github uploader) and wanted me to merge it with the original.
Every time the VPN is not working I state loudly what a piece of crap it is. The devOps team sits right behind me and they don't seem bothered. I don't think they know they're the ones who need to fix it.1
Living in the constant fear of the many threats that only people like us can understand. Even some of our closest friends will poke fun at us for being "paranoid" because they don't know how fucked things really are.1
When people give a bad review on your app because they dont know how to use it, they dont know what it is, and they don't bother reading the description.1
Finding a girl on Tinder probably looks like an opposite of Venn diagram... set A consists of girls that don't have weird names(meaning they are not from one of the neighbouring countries or just a tourist in my country) and aren't ugly(I know what they say about not judging a book by its cover but sometimes I don't know if I am looking at a human or a sea monster) and the set B consists of girls that consider me or my "about" text interesting... these sets have no intersection5
If anything pisses me off more than some random client talking trash about my software bc they don't know how to use it, it is some guy taking credit for someone else's work and get away😡2
I hate when people ask you to find their deleted files. Fucking people! It is like asking an architech to recover something from their trash bin. People are idiots that don't want to learn. Some people think that they know a lot of computing and barely can power on they monitors. At this level of average stupidity, people should get licenses to use computers.7
A lot of things dev say are true, but this one I don't believe as much:
Many devs say that it's important for everybody to learn a bit of a basic programming language, to learn about computers and how programs are made. I disagree, I think that instead people should learn *how* things work. Ex, in my school people always use a VPN to get around the proxy. I don't care if they know basic statements, I think it's more important to learn how a VPN works. Most of them don't even know what VPN stands for. Am I the only one?3
When people says you are good in programming they mean you will clear the exam easily.
But they don't know there is a art of writing code.
And if you stuck in the code then there is a art of debugging the code.
Who knows the both is a good programmer.2
Yay! University break! Now I have time to learn the stuff that I want/need to learn! (Seriously, I don't know why they are pushing delphi towards us)2
OK explaining how to flash fucking kernel and ROM to idiots that unlocked bootloader just because of fun and now they have bricks because they don't know how to flash kernel back.
That feeling when they don't understand something, yet you know that no matter how much you explain about it they still wouldn't understand...
My heart can only take so much torture...5
Oh god... technical decisions should be taken by people who actually know what they are doing and even so still counter-checked and not followed blindly.
I am currently working in a company that wasted millions by trying to implement micro-services where they don't belong and didn't step back when they realize it was a mistake
(protip: micro-services usually don't belong in most places).
Now we're dealing with the sunken costs fallacy and I am seriously believing that the company is going bust in a few months. Let's wait and see.
Cry and panic because they don't know the required technology to complete the task.
(We all go through this. Some people just cannot contain their emotions though).3
They asked to me build corporate website with Registration, Social login, API integration, Maps, Distance calculator, Weather, Currency convertor, etc. Using WordPress.
I don't know whether I am f@#*ed or doomed or something else.2
Why are some seniors just so full of themselves? I mean... Yeah I know that they know more than me (junior) but common, you don't have to rub it in my face! Tho I'd rather have it that they rub it in my face than them explain it with the most difficult terms / hardest words they could find in the dictionary!!
I also don't need them to complain that I'm on a different platform than them (while they help me)4
The IT department at my school doesn't know anything on Ubuntu or even Linux for that matter.
I asked them how I could connect to the WiFi on Ubuntu, cause I couldn't connect and they just said there was nothing they could do.
After that I spend two days to figure out how to connect and finally I got it working.
Next time I don't ask if they can help. I just ask for the settings and do it myself...1
Today morning my sales manager calls me and tells there is a bug in one of the integration module and he tells the client has called us yesterday pls come early to office today and fix it. I asked which end point they have issue, he replies I don't know. I don't know what is the bug where is the bug, but there is a bug when they send data to us, pls find and fix it before 11 am. The worst part of this is that integration module I never worked on and the person who developed it has left the company long before and there is no documentation. when I go to that folder I see many controllers and many end points. now how will I figure out the issue 😂 I don't even know the work flow of that integration. the bug reporter (my sales manager) don't even know at what end point what issue happened.1
Why do tech impaired people always break their tech and they have "no idea" how it broke...
Seriously? What did you do? You know what you were doing? Were you touching random setting again? For fuck sakes just tell me. You've fucking it up 3 times this week already it's not like I don't know your an incompetent prick.4
Teacher: "Classes and methods are pretty similar in java and c#. But in c they are a little different"
Me: "u cereal?"
Never say something you don't know shit about5
Sololearn has probably the dumbest community I've ever seen...
I know that there are lot of beginners who just started learning programming, but if you can't even use the app, I don't think they will be able to learn programming.
Also all these little kiddies who want to get some badass hackers but don't even know how to do a fucking course (There are lots of questions like "Where can I learn HTML" while they are right in the fucking app, like holy sheeet).
Sometimes I browse the Q&A just because there so funny and dumb questions. Really amusing!8
Every time there is a problem with API, the other team ALWAYS send sample request as image. I don't know if they are just mean or stupid.3
I don't like others to know that i'm a programmer. Do you agree or why shall they know? It just changes their opinion on you.4
I can't believe it, people are still using dreamweaver, and they doing so because they actually don't know that there are better options. How are you a web dev and using dreamweaver out of ignorance...4
You know when you get blocked from company's webmail, from their slack and everything they have... but they don't have the courage to tell you "you're fired"?
Well, now I do.
Almost a year working for someone, and they just locked me out - not even a "bye sucker!" or anything.6
Project managers suck, they don't know anything about programming and development, at least they should know the basics, it's the worst and most stupid job, and the worst thing is that they make more money than a developer.2
Don't you just love it when a department buys a software for the company without consulting IT and Data Management departments? You know to discuss integration, flexibility, compatibility and all that?
Don't you love it even more when the users of this new software then complain about the different tools that have to learn and the workflow being completely scattered?
But hey, they work in administration, so I'm sure they know what they are doing. ⚡⚡⚡4
Got an interview call from one company yesterday. They wanted to know how much active are mine GitHub and Stackoverflow accounts. When I asked how much time they give to employees to promote open source and community work, they didn't had any answer. Seriously? Wtf. At least don't ask if you don't promote open source and community contribution.2
I - Lets move your database to mlab. They offer 512mb database for free, every month. That is beyond your lifetime usage
Client - No. They Steal Data ( Like Facebook )
And client don't know a shit about mlab and development. Aware of quite a few names, bigrock, godaddy, bluehost. Even AWS is not in the list
- mlab is mongodb database service4
Really glad the privacy community can make some impact. I still don't understand why venmo has to has any public transaction feed and I don't think they have public off by default still, but at least they are explaining things to users instead of being sneaky with their dumb social-network-ish-thingy that made ALL OF YOUR FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS PUBLIC!!????
I don't understand why they hid this whole public feed thing. I'm pretty privacy focused and I didn't even know that my transactions where public untill I saw https://publicbydefault.fyi/.9
My Programming Ambition.
To empower aspiring programming entrepreneurs with the idea that they can use their highly coveted skills to achieve whatever ambitions they have. To show them why they don't have to settle for the industry standard right now, which is low pay, poor conditions, hyper competition and lack of appreciation. To help them understand that with what they know, they can literally create any career that they want.17
Honestly, stripe support is the best I've ever dealt with and I wish others would be exactly the same.
No level 0 support agents that don't know what the fuck they are talking about nor know their product to begin with, but instead every single person you chat with knows the API and even implementation details, just such a pleasant experience.1
A rant from git,
Why do developers always PUSH and PULL me around. I mean they don't just do it once or twice. No they COMMIT to doing it over and over. I try to REBUILD myself, but it is hard getting pushed and pulled constantly. I don't know the ORIGIN of where it started, but gosh I wish the bullying never started!
"customers don't know what they want until we've shown them"
Is it just me that feels this a lot? I build a lot of tools for my own use at work, and then suddenly everyone wants it after seeing what they can do...7
Why people diss php when they don't know about php7 and awesomeness like laravel..
Framework for artists indeed6
You shitty brat, if my HR staff didn't call you, they didn't call you. Still don't understand? Ok, simpler explanation. Because THEY DO NOT WANT YOU.
Just because we know each other doesn't mean you will get hired at my work. And you are not even a developer, you are a freaking sales man. Why the heck do you keep asking me about it?1
I don't know why they made so many algorithms, data structures and big O questions during interview, when all they wanted me to do was to maintain some legacy, tight coupled, spaghetti code with no architecture, documentation, tests nor any kind of engineering behind :/1
In my shitty country they are going to cut off internet connexion which is usually slow af because of a fucking international exam I don't know how the fuck they approved this
Fuck this asshole country FML
I want to get out of here so bad7
First day as an intern: when I was introduced to everyone, some say they don't even want to know me and stay the fuck away because they don't care.5
Why did they have to teach us C++ when they know majority of us don't know anything about programming?🤔16
Arg! Stack overflow why are you so full of argumentative dumb wits. I post serious question for a serious answer and what do I get? People who apparently know my situation better than me and have decided what I want to be done shouldn't be done. They don't even know what I am making. Either answer the question or move on!!!5
Last night I found two Athlon XP processors in my house. They're a 2400 and a 2700, but I don't know if they work because I don't have other parts to test them.
Nothing too interesting, I just thought it was kinda cool10
Started a new job recently and feel like I don't know anything compared to everyone else, only got a years commercial experience but feel like I should know more! Anybody else ever feel like this when they were starting out? How do you overcome it?6
Giving up expectations of people.
People don't know what the fuck they want, so what made me think they could actually deliver anything? Idk, but it doesn't matter now, my life has been easier since I stopped caring.1
Know how they say programmers don't quit jobs, they quit managers?
Imagine having 3 managers that all want 3 different things and none of them know what the fuck they're talking about.2
Ahh yes my good friend null
I don't know how Airbnb keeps having weird little bugs pop up across their apps. Don't they test?1
I don't know what the fuck to do. I would like the dev job for experience but I haven't worked for 3 fucking months.9
Anyone else get annoyed at people who complain about "tha algorithm's!!!" All the time? Like Instagram and Facebook tweak their "algorithm's" just to specifically to fuck with people and they act as if they know how the "algorithm's" work.
"Instagram has tweaked its algorithm so only 10% of people see your posts" - bitch please. That's just not how these things work, they don't just flip a fucking switch and pick percentages at random. Like how are they supposed to "fix their algorithm"? Do you even know what an algorithm is? How they might work?5
best ad services to use? I really don't want to use google. even if they paid double, I wouldn't use them. anyone know? I'm talking about for websites and/or apps39
When you got selected and got the offer from the company and then you just wait to see your offer letter so that you could know what's the next step to take. But later, the company says that they will send once all its process will be done. And your relatives constantly asks you about the location and you were like " I don't have this f**king offer letter and I don't know anything." But later they taunt your parents with some bloody shit stories :(
I mean "apna kaam se kaam nahi sakte kya"6
I don't like things like "programming is copy&paste"
But if you think about it... Actually it is: when you don't know how to use a function or how to write a new language you read the docs, copying and using what they say 🤔
Stack Overflow? It's a doc full of examples 😁6
Sometimes I like to see how the other side live and just watch people in a computer store.
There are the nervous tip-toers who don't want to attract attention. The point and lookers, who read the sign and nod and show they understood.
There are the ones who just wander aimlessly trying to look like they know what they want.
Finally there are the 'expert helpers' who know enough 'techie' words to convince anyone around that they know what they're talking about.
It's like a people zoo.1
New job at new company
Going over current systems
I don't know if I'm excited for the challenge or scared that they have lived with the system like this for that long.3
At my previous job I was working with cliets as a support for our application. One client had problem printing invoice so they caled. Was web application so invoice was first converted to PDF then you would print it.
I ask client if they have Abobe Reader installed. Her response was some thing like that: " I don't know what are you saying. Its is like you are talking chines."
I asked for remote access, fix problem.
Still don't know how they managed to use application.
Most of the calls I have with recruiters involve having to explain the technobabble of tech stacks, programming languages versus markups, how apps are made, etc. Recruiters usually don't know what goes on in a technical role you know. I do feel positive knowing that I am trying to contribute to the recruiters' knowledge so that they make lesser and lesser bad tech takes.1
Have you ever worked in a team that actually did everything right?
I have never seen anyone talk about a team in which things got done.
I'm a solo coder, so, don't really know either way. Sounds like mostly, teams are a mess b/c they aren't done right for the most part?
I dont know actually, but seems that way.10
I don't understand the hype among the non technical people about Blockchain! Why the fuck they want to implement everything in Blockchain? Don't they know that it is not for every single application and mostly used for some trustless applications?
Now one of our clients wants his restaurant website to be implemented in Blockchain!2
The worst thing about building an "accessible" app is that you might just have 4 users out of the million who need it.
Either they don't know it exists or it needs to be modified for every user!4
I don't know your view on girls coding but I love it. They're vicious, focused and can do their job and instantly they can smile at you and make you forget everything. Thank you for being around the office.10
When working on feature the client requested for two straight days, one that required refactoring few others. Just to hear on the third day, that no, he won't be needing it after all.
It is simple git revert, but still. Two days of work just removed be single command because of incompetent client.2
So,the lecturer is discussing with the other lecturers to not let us cs101 students use lists when writing our Python solutions because he says that the students don't know how to think in terms of lists.fuck,coz literally every single solution of mine used lists.If they subtract marks,i will not put up with that.Just because the other students have absolutely damn no clue about what they doing when they using lists it doesn't mean they can stop me.3
So it turns out when you tell normal people that your a software developer, they don't know what that is which explains why they don't ask you to fix anything hardware related2
My parents "know" that I build websites. The funny part is the "how" I build them. For them, I call obscure forces and make a sacrifice. And thus, the website is done. So they don't really know how I do it, but I have their deepest respect and pride. Plus, I don't get to fix anyone's printer / computer 😍2
I am my teams goto guy for anything and everything. For any problem they face technically.
They think I am some kind of genius. But in reality I just Google. :/ I don't know most of the things they ask!
The saving grace is that, whenever I try to solve anything, the pieces of the puzzle quickly fall into their places in my head.
Now the impostor syndrome is kicking in hard!1
I fucking hate asp.net web forms. Today we implemented listboxes, so we expected them to just be a wrapper for HTML listboxes. NOPE! They are simply selects. Why they decided to hijack the name and do this, I don't know. That does explain why they don't have multiple columns like true listboxes.
So glad that for the next project, which we should start by the end of May, we'll be moving to MVC and .Net core. This shit is so stupid!3
Today, on the Hypocrite show we have a bunch of hypocrit wankers talking meta. For example, this just in, a bunch of talkative wanker classmates, all gorls (yes, this is not a typo (yes it's for sarcastic goal (yes read it in Gru's voice (no I don't do Lisp stop asking)))), start talking about how they don't like their lower-graders talking too much they, the previously mentioned "gorls", are around and would prefer them to shut up and let enjoy their "peace and quiet". Oh I don't know, you wankers wants my 2-page 11px complain on you talking too much in class and everywhere you go?6
I don't know how to feel about this: in the dev team I am the only one working with a dark theme.
Are they real developers? Where am I?6
I just became the CS tutor for my university...the one thing I have learned:
Don't let them ask questions explain what they need to know and walk away. Let them down and find the joy of problem solving.1
Someone you know hears that you're good with computers. Asks to help with their Windows issue. Proceeds to tell you they don't know how you're employed since you don't know anything about Windows.1
Assume other people know what they are doing. Since I don't know what I'm doing, why would they know what they are doing?
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.
Yes, they given all of us plastic chairs for sitting 36 hr instead of been bag. Wow you can imagine the condition of our back. They also don't know the password which they created for guest...
When I published my first app and some people made an official thread in a forum. When I went there they told me I had done a good work. Needless to say they don't know me at all.
"When developers encounter confusion, they usually blame the language instead of their lack of understanding."
I love this. It's from the You Don't Know JS Book Series that I'm reading.
shutdown an old Jenkins CI pipeline from one of our teams... after one month they call us to bring it online again because they don't know how to build it manually.... lol #automation #scripting #jenkins2
Today I wanted to learn something new because I feel I'm lagging behind. I went through a few tutorials, but they didn't satisfy me. The general idea is that I want to build something but I don't know what's that something, and I don't know where to start. I find it somewhat scary that there are so many things to learn, but I can't decide which one is useful and which one isn't. Sooo I'm stuck.6
You know how wonderful it is to hear a child talk for the first few times? Then, once they get the gist of it, how they endlessly rattle on with worthless stuff - eventually saying something interesting, but really don't have a single idea what the fuck they're talking about?
There is a big difference between IT and CS, the first has a lot of monkeys because most of the hiring managers don't ask technical interview questions that screen out monkeys... Probably because.... **Hmmmm thinking of a nice way to say it** They don't know any better...
My senior said bitbucket is not safe. 'We should host our code in our in house server'
Fuck you man, did u use ur own email server to receive email? Totally pissed off when someone simply say things that they don't know.6
Making a ticket support system using wordpress for a uni group project. I go away for a week and team tells me they have done loads of work.
so I take a look at out github to find that they haven't used a single wordpress function and have just written there own php application with their own tables and db class, and now they don't know why things aren't working.
I'm going to need several litres of coffee to get through this3
Sorry if this isn't very dev related:
Does anybody know any good freelancing websites for artists, illustrators, ui/ux designers, etc. ?
I've seen upwork, but they're so uptight they don't accept everyone.5
For some reason, my roommate thinks Facebook can track his and all our calls.
I don't know the beginning or the end of what they can/can't do, but that just has to be BS... right?15
Interns have degree's in 'Computer Science'.
I do not, Just a microsoft crash course on C# and SQL.
They are 3 - 4 years older than i am, yet they don't know how to use CSS.
I wonder what they learnt in that 4 years?17
I don't know how people dont get annoyed with ads on their fucking phones home screen from some weird apps they probably felt needed to install because the next sheep (online or not) told them so.1
I just became an android dev last week, yay for me. Though, I really hate how I inherited more than 50k lines of spaghetti!
They ask me to fix this and that, but that's okay for me, I can manage this.
The worst thing is we don't use any kind of version control system. And I'm always tasked to merge my work with other 2 android dev working on same spaghetti.1
I don't understand how after decades, people who know what they're doing don't disable automatic updates as one of the first actions on a newly installed windows machine. People moan about it on here like they don't know.5
My mistake for using edge. Uggggggg I hate microsoft. My parents don't know how to use word. How could they know how to set up parental controls.
I hate when people use error, bug and glitch interchangeably. They are all different things people. Stop using such technical words if you don't even know their meanings.3
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
I still don't know how to cope with bosses who think you haven't done shit because they don't see an interactable UI yet.6
Why do average people insist on buying ridiculous packages from companies like GoDaddy - when they don't know a thing about hosting or domains? They may as well just break a few of my fingers before I start their project.5
Right now everything is a CMS. And I hate it. It lets people who don't know what they're doing, think they know what they're doing and make a mess for the real developers.
All I can hope for us some huge educational effort so that if you want to use WordPress you can, but know that there are much better options.
Every change has to be approved ahead of time anyway and its literally my job to keep this website running. I don't need you poking around breaking stuff.3
Had our 3rd party vendor finally check their code into our github. Great.
Checking the recent commits, they only add changed .CSS files. Hmm..odd.
We use less so why did they update the compiled CSS file...? Did they forget to checkin the Less changes...?
Nope. Backend sitecore developer updated the bundled, minified CSS files and checked those in along with the fucking node_modules folder.
Didn't even know what LESS is.
The vendors PM swears the frontend developer did the changes. I don't know what's worse.
I see all kinds of rants here about how coworkers and bosses know nothing about programming. And I'm over here like, how'd they get a job? I feel like every company wants you to be a code ninja rockstar badass, and they're constantly telling me they're pursuing these other unicorns, not me. What gives? I don't know everything, but I know more than done ranters coworkers and bosses. Fuck.
So many 'my Precious' devrant stickers, but nowhere to put them.
Waiting for new laptop in three months, trade out phone every year so don't want to waist them there.
Friend: you can give one to me.
Friend: woah, dude?
Yeah, they do look sad just sitting in the envelope they came in. Here you go.
Friend: Thanks. I don't know, still looks sad on my laptop.
Well, that's cause your laptop's shit init.1
Head of PM and head of UI/UX at my company today expressed to me that they are going to change how user created content is displayed because they know what looks better. I don't think they understand what user created content actually is. I can't believe these people are in charge of anything. I swear they just belong to a club of management types that read the same blogs and follow each other from job to job destroying everything in their wake like a locust swarm.1
Why do Java developers wear glasses?
Because they don't C#.
I know this one gets thrown around a lot, but it's simple and a terribly great joke.
Now every boss and client wants RWD on their sites... it's a pity they don't even know what it means...
"Why do this heading change size? I want it bigger!"
"the photo was ok side by side with the text. Why does it move above on my iPad"
"i can't zoom!"5
When people tell me they're computer illiterate, they either know their exact Windows version to the Service Pack and can utilize the task manager effectively or they don't know that their computer desktop is different from their browser homepage. There is no in-between.
my office setup is finished, and i have my first client. they ask about how much they must pay for their software. i don't know anything about making a price tag. anyone know how? from marketing maybe ?7
So maybe I don't know where I live. Or I was just so excited to get my stickers that I goofed and transposed my address. Either way, I finally got them and have many plans for where they go!
So guys at the moment Im working at a medical company as a business temp but I really like it here. At the moment they know me as the tech guy. I want to be the official systems administrator here but don't know how to go about doing that.
I have a strong Linux background but everyone here uses windows.
I think that they need a server but I don't think I can just go up to my boss and say "hey, I know I'm not certified yet but hows about you give me money so I can set up a server for you?"
I need advice.5
It's a great start of the week when your general manager asks you to get in to touch with a guy to ask about their return merchandise authorization system. And when I reply, sure, what would you like me to accomplish. You get the reply, I don't know, don't bother me with the technical details, they told me it should be super easy.
I don't know what 'it' is, but I'm happy that the man who can hardly use his macbook says its super easy.1
I am supposed to conduct an Angular2 workshop for my juniors. Just found out that their subjects had changed and they don't know HTML or js, only C.
Why do they do it? How am I supposed to teach them Typescript,Object oriented,HTML, basic Nodejs, Angular in 4 hrs...
So I was checking out Scaleway home page, and they said: Gitlab use their infrastructure?
Is it pure lie or gitlab really host something there? And why would they do that if they use Google?
I don't know what to trust these days lol23
a nice feeling being complimented for the effort and frontend. but it is still a pity i am the only one appreciating my tidy, efficient and scalable backend too.1
!rant.. When the client makes you do something stupid, and you try to tell them, but they still want it, so you give it to them, and weeks later, they come back asking you to revert it.... ugh!!
I wanna comment on the jira "I hate to say I told you so, but I told you so!!!" so bad..6
Anyone else scared that this fucker can back flip now!?
Anyone know any fuckers that work at BD? We need to get them reall drunk so they don't accidentally iRobot us.7
Ok I don't know very much about what goes into developing a whole os, but I find it hard to imagine how you can fuck something up so badly like the win10 creators update. When suddenly the explorer and the menus don't have text displayed and you have to guess which one is the right folder. Do they even have testing?4
Me: fuck man there are a shitload of ants crawling around my monitor wtf I don't even know where they are coming from.
Lead: *from his desk at the other side*: they are coming from the other side.
Hijoeputa que me vienes jodiendo la madre otra vez COÑO pero si como jodes COÑOOOOOOOOOO whshaisiwjsiwhwisidh dhdj#&#&@^#^@^#2
Any idea of how to protect your nodejs source code on a client's onsite server ?
If they can SSH, they can get the entire source.
This is built into the angular framework very well but I don't know how to do this on a server.
Any neat packages for obfuscation, uglification etc ?8
I'm starting to realize that maybe the issue with my team is that they don't know how to break down complex problems into smaller parts that can be completed, tested one by one, allowing you to create save points.
To them it's either all or nothing... And once they're done, they cannot explain what they did other than it works..2
WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK?!5
So I've been sitting on the phone with OVH for the last hour because their VPS refuses to let me change my password and come to find out they don't really know why either. Fml.
Worst part (at least that's on my mind today)? People who don't build the app giving the orders of what needs to be done in it. They never know how possible things are, or expect them in half the time it actually takes.
This morning at 5:30 AM I was awoken to 20 text alerts for services being down.
Seems they had been down since 2 AM but the previous shift didn't take action.
Long story short:
An outsourced common component is unavailable, and the team responsible doesn't know how to troubleshoot.
I pointed them to the exact issue.
We are now 10 hours into the outage and they still don't know what to do.
Chrome browser was installed on my new PC at work by IT as a piece of software we get as default.
I've been having an issue where certain sites seem to fall SSL.
I contacted IT and their only response was that it must have been installed by mistake and that don't support it.
When I informed them that it was on every new PC I had seen they said that's not possible and I'm the first case they had seen.
WTF, our IT department is so screwed up that they don't even know what their rolling out to our PCs.
Even worse I've been made to feel like I'm doing something wrong by using software they don't approve of, even though they installed it.
I think I'm sending tonight getting an old laptop set up with linux do I can connect to the guest Wi-Fi at work. At least then the PC is under my control.4
Impediment to the agile process at my job: systems not understanding what review and retrospective is for. I mean I don't know what it's for, but it probably isn't for yelling about how testing is conducted and why it's hard. I would assume that's for the planning meeting. Not to mention apparently they still don't know the fucking schedule. Since they seem to think I'm done with a task, even though I don't have, like, the data I need to integrate with and it's on the schedule that I won't get the data til, like, the end of the month.
Prank idea: call a colleague's phone and if they don't have your number (you'll notice by the way they talk), they won't know it's you. Then try to convince them they've somehow created a data breach and you have access to their company's source code... 😈
Oh, and if they do have your number just say you accidentally called the wrong person.
So there are like these "Operating systems made with VB.NET"... Don't they know it's just a very fancy overlay for Windows... And it's pointless waste of system resources?4
Sometimes I work from home, I don't know if i'm allowed to but nobody says nothing and I don't notify either, my record is 1 week without showing up at the office, I want to stay one month just to see what happens.
Do you think they trust me or I'm unnoticed and replaceable?8
That moment people assume you don't know things because you are generally quiet because they are around their friends. Uhm, I got the job and had to go through months of interviews, tests, video chats, probation periods and got the job almost 3 months earlier than I should and got promoted to a better team, you don't see me trying to demean your job as a call center consultant here around all the developers I know. Just lemme drink my coffee in peace :(
Write 5 pages full of relevant information for a 15 mark question in the Human computer interaction exam but the teacher chooses to give me 2 marks , why? Because I didn't write everything that was given in the words exactly ( I had written it in my own words) . Don't know whether today's engineers are supposed to know how to use their brains or whether they must just know how to copy paste some shit.5
Don't know a lot about them, but I have heard of the 'dev' summer 'workshops' that are basically 5 minutes of some guy telling them how to use scratch, and usually result in a bunch of pompous 5 year olds who "know everything about programming". The problem I see here is that they do simple things with a simple language, and when in life it comes to doing things, they have to bang their head against the wall because they really never learned the frustration of programming.
hi guys I've got a question for you
what if your manager asks for a programmer of a certain programming language (that you know but is not a master of it) for a certain project and there are only few people you know who would volunteer and they might hire other people if they don't find people inside, would you volunteer yourself given that you don't have any project with you right now or no?
thanks for those who will answer! :)
PS background abt me: univ. student, no experience in the industry yet4
My bank here in Philippines is having a glitch with there system since yesterday. the current balances of the depositors are not tally anymore and most annoying thing is they don't allow to withdraw money in their atm machines until now. I know its very difficult to fix this issue but we our need money in order to eat! 😢2
I don't talk about Dev stuff with my friends/family. I try keep keep it to myself. They either get really angry, confused or they try to talk about things they know nothing about.1
It makes my blood boil when my colleagues (who have been here for ages) know that maintaining dependencies in code is important but don't even action it because they give the excuse of having no time or the pressure of finishing it on time.
It angers me that I'm now in .dll hell and they don't even consider the time or push a valid case to fix the issue. It also frustrates me as I've realised that they have grown complacent/indifferent, not even attempting to change it.1
What to do when you think your boss sucks at a language they're developing in, but everyone assumes they are awesome because they don't know that language, and you're stuck as the junior fixing their code?
pgAdmin 4: I don't know what shit they used to build you and I don't give a light fuck, you fucking suck!! 😤😤4
Don't let your computer know that you are in a hurry,They can smell fear and they will slow down if they know that you are running out of time
I'm helping my teammates with the problems that they face in debugging an issue or fixing a Dev environment.
Sometimes ppl go too flexible and ask for my Dev VM. The help I have to offer is tell them cause of an issue and tell them the fix that they have to give. What the fu*k they do? What did they gain as experience all these years.
Ppl don't know how to make draft commits. They can't fix but failures. They don't know anything.
They just sit at office and age as it is their only job.
Seniors take so much salary. Why don't they feel bad that they are not doing justice to their work.
On one side, I don't want devs in my firm to know about devRant //Coz they know my %Username%
But on the other side, the more, the merrier.. I could rant about stuff with all those I work with..3
I fucking hate when people that give you marks are not qualified enough.
Actually, in school, it's two weeks where we conceptualize projects (we don't code them, just have concepts) and we're noted on them.
But there's a partial jury, that has partial opinions, the different juries doesn't share the same opinion and are biased.
I don't know, it's like if because they are programming teachers or communication teacher, they were able to know what will work in the future and what won't. Even in domain they don't know.
I made the perfect situational joke:
I was explaining physics to a coworker and stating that the only particles that are important for everyday life are protons, electrons and neutrons.
CW:" What about neutrinos? You don't care about them?"
Me:" No, I don't. Wanna know why?"
CW:"Yes, tell me."
ME:" Because, they don't matter!"2
I got the short straw and get the privilege of building our new website.
I really don't know PHP very well, but apparently everyone else says they know it less.
Yea! Holiday weekend. NOT!!!! :(5
So I'm a final year comp sci student, and really struggling to find a job. I've been applying a lot, doing assessments e.t.c, but people don't seem to like me when they meet me. Am I doing something wrong? I normally research the company as much as I can and try to show how much I know, and try to give the best answers I can think of, but I'm not sure why they don't like me. Any tips or advice?13
I wish senior people would just admit if they don't know something or are unsure. I hate spending time implementing a feature and spending more time troubleshooting it only to ask for help and be questioned why I'm "doing it like that" in the first place...
YOU TOLD ME THIS IS HOW IT IS DONE!!!1
I'm setting up an project at work. Takes me until now 2 days and there are dozens of undocumented things I couldn't know.
It's an total brainfuck of product. Most of it could be automated and be less error prone.
How can people do that? Don't they hate to do it too? I cannot understand why they didn't change anything there for years.1
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
Currently introducing two coworkers to 180 kloc written by my predecessor over 5+ years time with tons of magic constants. I've been on the project for 5 months and don't know anything. They asked for the documentation and I gave them the look.
When you're a comp Sci student helping fix one of your peers' projects and you have to spend 10 minutes hitting ctrl z because they don't know what git is.1
My family has been very supportive, but mostly ignorant about my journey to software development, and tolerant of all of my fuck-ups along the way.
Yet they don't dare to even think to know what I am doing, because every time they asked me, no matter how well I explained, they never got any of the intricate parts of software development.
They know I make software. They know about the usual stress that comes from organizing projects, planning, maintaining infrastructure, but to them, it's as if I build buildings or I'm like a single-man conveyor that creates cars. It makes sense, and they will never understand how I do it, and they don't care.
That moment when "client developer" tell you how to do this and that but in fact you know that their solution is not a good solution. In the worst case scenario, they just don't take you justification.1
I just came from a 3rd interview with a company. I don't know how I did really, they asked me to make a .net mvc project in 6 hours, when they know I've never used .net at all.
I had to learn the thing during the assessment, so I think I really did better than what one would expect. But I could've nailed it have I used something I'm more familiar with... I don't even know how to use the ide.
I learned quite some things, but then again it wasn't about learning, but about doing
Just felt like sharing really. Never felt so confused after an interview before. I did really good, but not really... haha
Well they said they will take things into consideration, but idk :/2
Anyone else have so many ideas for projects that they don't know where to start, get decision paralysis and end up plays by games instead?
Just got this email.... "I may have sent you this opening recently, and my client just got back to me this morning and said they are more urgent than ever to have a good candidate with this skillset join their team" I don't even know who this guy is?! Why do recruiters do this1
It's been over a year,
I don't know if we will ever see it and the hope in my heart grows weak with each sunset,
the crew is restless, they thirst for it and I don't know if I can contain them anymore.
Oh Lord(@dfox) help us find the next episode of Devrant Podcast1
I started a months ago in a new company and I grab a horrible legacy system and what makes me more angry is they know the code isn't code and isn't fit our new reality but they don't want to refactor the same.
So which more features we produce more bugs comes along because the legacy code bugs still on there.4
Yeah, I have some friends, but none of them appreciates Yeoman like I do.
Fuck, they don't even know what it is. 😡😡😡1
When as a php dev you work in an office on projects with .net devs that have to interact and you don't know c/c# and they don't know php so all code snippets shared between you are in python. 🙃1
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
Why is it that a website thinks that it would be a good idea to completely block a user from using their website if they have an adBlocker? Now don't get me wrong, I can understand them wanting to put up a message maybe saying "hey we make money off the ads that are displayed, please don't block them." But FFS give the user the choice to close the window and continue on if they don't want to disable their adBlocker! I know personally I just choose to leave the site and go elsewhere for content when I encounter those things!
Don't force me to disable and then refresh!2
I see a lot of people saying they are programmers and they can't fix other shit. But I mean, using that brain to do other things won't surely kill you. I know you don't have time, but it may be worth taking a while to focus on fixing something else. Just to know how to do it. I do a lot of electronics, but occasionally I've been a plumber, an electrician, a painter and a mechanic.
That said, I know, I'm 17 and I surely hadn't the full programmer experience yet, but I'll try to keep this attitude when I grow up.3
My parents know that I work with "codes" in computers to make all sort of things 😁. My siblings have some idea of what programming and software engineering is. They tell me that it is fun (they have tried it), but they still don't value it that much 😕
Friend goes to work on snowblower, quits because they don't know what to do.
I ask: RTFM?
Response: I don't RTFM, I TIFU
Webpack, requirejs, AMD, browserify all are wonderful tools but they don't play nice with node(client side) .
I LITERALLY switched between all, because the hacks worked but not quite. (Using node and electron, go figure!)
You know what they say fifth times the charm.1
I don't like setting up servers and things. I know how to (I spent 1.5 years using archlinux and I know a lot on what's going under the hood). I like the functional paradigm where the same input yields the same result. I don't like having side effects although I know they can be necessary.
I would have to create a script to handle the configuration process instead of spending hours redoing it.
That's what I love about Heroku even if it's pricey. Almost no configuration at all. Attach some addons, configure a few env variables and everything else is in the code.
I have a dream that one day companies will understand that most people who pirate music/movies/games etc. do it because they don't have enough money or because they can't get them any other way. They don't lose money, as those people are not able to buy their products anyway, instead, they gain supporters and possible future clients. Piracy is one of the reasons Windows is the king OS(prove me wrong...) and also the reason Game of Thrones is the most popular show on the planet. Instead of hunting torrent site founders maybe they could, I don't know, build great and cheap services. Spotify is such a service, no reason to pirate music anymore, but everything else still lies in the middle ages...8
What devs call what they are working on, when they don't really know what they are working on.
The number of times I have been contacted by companies because they have seen my website and Github account saying they are interested in someone like me, to later be rejected because my lack of experience from working on any companies.
I know they want seniors but how is one supposed to climb from junior to senior when companies only want 5+ years experienced seniors.
I know the fact that I am a junior dev, but I would like to say don't judge a book by its cover. It's the skill not # of years that matter, no?5
I've set one of my contacts' ringtone to the "IT Crowd" (I haven't actually watched that series yet) "NO! God please NO!" audio bit so I know when that specific person is calling me... I'm glad I don't get his calls anymore, or not as often as they were...
I'm developing an app for a client, but they are responsible for the APIs.
Which turns out is the biggest mistake of my life...
I don't know whether data types are unknown to them or they are just playing a sick game with my emotions.
They have a different data type depending on how they feel, e.g.
- a boolean can be true, false, 0,1 or 2...
- an array can be an array or just a single item...
Who in their right mind can do this?4
Security theater is not security.
I am still on my mother's cell plan. I pay for it, but she is the primary account holder. We are grandfathered into unlimited no restrictions data, and a new phone yearly, so yeah, not giving that up.
Anyway, when i go to the store to manage the account they say, 'sorry, Sarah needs to come in as the primary account holder.'
'I am sarah' I tell them. I am lying, they know I am lying, and they know I know.
But they have no choice but to go along. I even asked once; they are not allowed to ask for proof of id. I don't know why.
It's just security theater.1
I don't understand why some people take computer science as their stream, while they don't know anything in it. Those majority people in most of the universities take computer science seeing other people's rush. In my University 70 % of the people even dont know the ABC of programming. These mad annoying people just ruin the merit list. 😠😠8
f**king cooperate d**ckheads this ppl are work-shipped like gods who just ask stupid questions just for name sake and they don't know what the heck is going on underneath...they use fancy words like cloud/docker/etc and they please top management d**kers and this guys are top in chain...f**king cooperate political word... _|__3
thank you devrant for giving me a forum to complain about developers who rant to change the route config file because they don't know how write a simple action link.
They don't really know what I do, I guess. They listen to me with patience when I explain them something about what I'm doing, they forget what I said and then tells friends, coworkers and costumers that I'm a computer engineer. And also I can install Linux on a computer.
freelancer.com has tons of indian bots that bid node.js project with their php skill. I'm sick when someone bid and they said they don't know the language / framework required for the project. Go back and make a better bot!!1
Facebook should switch to NodeJS, seriously.
They eat the memory of my devices, that's weird it's only Messenger and Facebook who do this..Don't use Ajax when you don't know how to profit from it without affecting the user experience.16
So I don't even know if I should be mad;
person hired at the same time as me has been given a kind of manager title, they do a lot of logistical (trello, department liaison) stuff, in addition to code. Were they promoted to manager? Or have they just given a bunch of non-code stuff to do, and I should be thrilled not to be bothered with it?
I have an interview with big company in 2 hours. Position? Junior Java Developer.
They said they wanted to have 30min talk to check my profile. I don't know what is that supposed to mean :s
I have no idea how to prepare for the interview. Might as well go unprepared. My strategy is to just be chilled. Should be okay right?4
Is there a monitor recommended for grandparents???
My grandparents pulled my eldest brothers computer out of their attic after 3 years of non-use I got it to work so they can do Facebook and small games but the monitor is a dinosaur on its last legs and I know they don't need a gaming monitor like I look at but I don't know if there's any specifically designed for older people2
Why do people try to answer questions they don't even know what mean...
I want to use a package that's made for nodejs and it's using one of the core module of nodejs (http), so that's a problem because react-native doesn't have that module and I can't just simply install it (it won't work), so I search the web in the quest for a solution maybe a drop-in replacement or a polifill or something, I got to this question that's exactly what I would ask if I were to do the question myself https://stackoverflow.com/questions... asking for a polyfill to use http module in react-native, and the only answer is from a guy that I don't think he even knows what he is talking about, his answer don't make any sense with relation to the question and doesn't even address package http nor polyfill so obviously he didn't even know what the title of the question means...
If you don't fucking know something, just stay fucking silent don't reply with giberish stuff that don't have nothing to do with what people are asking. You don't have know it all, don't feel you have to... and don't try to answer stuff you don't even know.4
Is a developer a developer if they don't even know the keyboard shortcuts for copy and paste (even if not for code)?6
So some of the C++ guys I deal with have this thing in their mind that they know all the other languages cause they're similar right, and they argue that it doesn't work vice versa.You know Java, you don't know c++
Simple advice to people out there who meet such people is to just ask them to make a Java program with the goto command
Little know it all freaks.11
I don't know why do we need to entertain our clients for each and every thing. I mean I'm handling every fucking exception out there I have like 10 flags handling individual stuff. and if I raise this to my boss he will just say. if they are paying then we are doing it. I mean come on!
Being able to understand and get along with almost any grafical user interface at once without reading manuals, due to knowing the intentions of the UX-designers.
Family and friends are stunned everytime, when they don't know how to do something on programs they don't know, while I often need just a few clicks to archieve it, even if I'm using the program for the first time
I don't know why people are complaining about windows updates while they can stop the update service from service manager. I did that wile I was using windows.
Moral of the story: I use linux. 😜
I find it very surprising that people at work are always reluctant to do code reviews. There are no standards in place and everyone is free to push whatever they want. There is Sonar but it doesn't catch bad logic. Don't know how are we going to deal with this technical debt.4
About the devRant podcast... Why they don't have a feed (I know you put it in many "funny places" like Google play, iTunes, but I like to use WeCast to listen to my podcasts...2
Someday I hope my coworkers realize that since I did not build the third party software they chose as a CRM, I don't know how it was built to operate. Even though the CRM devs have already explained to them multiple times the way it was built to operate. 😡
I don't know how many of you uses IBM Watson api (personality insights). We use in our office. They send back a huge data known as big 5 needs etc. They find the personality of a person from his speech. like anger, happiness etc. I don't understand how they calculate them and also every client trust the data what ibm tells is correct. if it was you if you have done that feature too many questions might have come.
that's the difference between mnc and a startup3
I'm attending my first 'hackathon' at University next week. They've given us all some details about what it's on.
It's basically dashboards and data (I don't know much,) but I know nothing about either of those topics.
Does anyone have any advice? I feel I may have thrown myself in the deep end and I don't want to disappoint my team (whomever they may be, I meet them on the day).
Where do the images get saved to on devrant (on Android)? I've saved so many memes but don't actually know where they go12
Do you ever feel that there are some guys on stack overflow who can't understand English or they don't know the solution to your problem they down vote your question?
I am talking to them don't be an asshole. You have a special place reserved for you in hell..
I don't know how things are outside Brazil, but I do wish I could pay for portuguese lessons for some of my clients, and also a bit of english too.
Reading their messages or e-mails just gives me head cramps, I tell ya.
I do make errors once in a while, but god damnit ALL their messages are trainwrecks!
Also, they want to use some jargons in english (because they think it sounds cooler, and I do agree that sometimes it's shorter and easier), but first they should put their efforts into a better use of portuguese language.
Really, I don't even know how some of them got past university, but they DID it, and it pains me to see that.
Though the pain isn't bigger than being told "hey, I don't understand much, but that's easy for you, right?" for whatever task they want me to do.
Anyone else ever have a boss not understand what you do so they give you 'busy' work instead?
Then also don't understand why you don't know how to do it
Has anyone found a bug in Paypal site? I sent them an email about their incomplete looking page and they want me to upload screenshot and the sourcecode. I don't mind the screenshot but sourcecode? I'm not sure since I wouldn't know what the sourcecode includes. Would you ever do it?8
For weeks the excitement had been going about the Eclipse, I guess because they don't know what it is like... I had the luck for one project, I don't think I want to see it again... 😧🙃😏
When your boss has you learn a new language but then doesn't listen to any of your input concern this language and acts like they know the language as well....which they don't
Would anyone know of a hackerrank type of api, where users can hold language agnostic challenges? I want to add that to my project but they stopped their api.
Anybody know of any other apis?
CodeEarth & CodeWars don't provide what I need.
I normally would create what I need and don't find but I assume that making something as sophisticated would be very very time consuming
I don't understand why corporate waste so much money on agile training they know that doesn't gonna improve performance of developer at all. Instead of it decreases his performance because of so many annoying meeting and reporting3
Imagine how many programing languages it have now!! I think in future they will come more programing languages and more powerful, i know C is father but it also wrote'd by someone so i don't think so it much hard to make new programing languages in future!!2
Avoid the words blockchain, microsoft, competitive, startup, and equity. This works well for a primary screening. Second at the interview talk to them if they don't know shit either the company is shit or don't give a shit who they hire. Third figure out what you need to make to live without stress, any company that will pay it cares about their employees as long as it's somewhat reasonable
Why do people (mostly clients) love to pay using paypal? Don't they know it's not a bank and there's really no fraud protection.
I know I'm enabling it by offering PayPal as a payment option...3
How do I change my user name so I can be sure my coworkers don't see me complaining about them. Fuckem they should know they suckit.
I use Apache .htaccess to rewrite requests to .git folder to return 404. Why? Because next web told me I'm using git wrong, that they directory contains source control compromising information but I'm too lazy to figure out what to do and--this is the most important part--I don't know what I'm doing.
A day in the life of a SWE who turns to YouTube to make money since they don't actually know how to code
I just got myself working with the worst developers I could ever know, they don't know nothing about dry, kiss principles... They built an entire platform using Zend framework but they don't used mvc layers right and there is no backend validation most of the time, besides many other true newbie developer problems. I just came to this job and from and Rb/Python background and I can't live with this piece of code. They have 20+ years in the market while I'm just a guy with 5 or 6 years. What should I do if I can't convince the startup owners they are bad as hell waste of money?1
