Me: Using the CMD, it makes stuff really easier.
Schoolmate(loudly): *MY NAME* is hacking the schooooool.
Ignorant idiots now I am not allowed to use my laptop in class anymore.28

*me, coding at a pub*
*random dude walks up to me*
He: "what are you doing? Programming? What?"
Me: "yup. That's a horizontally and vertically scalable webservice, that's using amqp, rest APIs and encryption to schedule starting, stopping and autoscaling of a total of 90 heroku applications. This webinterface *showing* allows you to trigger starts and stops manually and monitor all processes."
He: "oh, so you are programming a Website? In HTML?"
Me: "euhm........ Yes."
I understand this dude had probably no clue what I was talking about.. Yet I am angry at him. Reducing more than 12k loc to HTML... Go fuck yourself.22
*after 2 hours of programming*
Me to me: you can watch one episode of [some series]!
Me to me after that episode: just one more couldn't hurt for once!
*five hours later*
Me: "what am I doing with my life 😭
This happens too fucking damn often 😫11
My programming teacher is a freaking degenerate. He spend 7 months teaching us basic stuff like if-clauses, while-loops and stuff like that over and over again - everyone was annoyed but he didn't listen to us because "some people still don't get it". (The reason for this could be their total absence during lessons but who am I to tell.)
Beginning of 2018 he realised we hadn't much time left to prepare for our final exam so he tried self-taught learning. 8 sorting algorithms, recursion, how to write classes and objects in less than a week. And of course there was a classtest about this - needless to say that like nobody passed it. He still has no clue why we are "so lazy and dumb".
One of his favourite code examples is a calculator. I don't know how many i've programmed and they've gotten more and more ridiculous. (Who the hell would want interfaces like IComparer in a calculator?)
He even wanted to convince us that for-loops can't count down (and that things like "i--" doen't exist.)
I could go on and on about this guy and his craziness.27
Windows 10!! WHAT THE FUCKING WHAT do you think you're doing?? Why am I getting a message saying admin has blocked my access to Services when I AM THE FUCKING ADMIN! And I sure as hell didn't block me!!!!!!!!13
Had to explain a developer from a wordpress dev agency where to find the wp-config.php file and what it does/what the values do.
This person has been doing this for years.
I looked at this config file for nearly the first time in my life.
I literally had to explain her which variables stood for/did/meant what.
I am fucking done with today.9
Not truly a coworker, but a train conductor on my commute sees me coding all the time and chats with me about how he is teaching himself (I am also self taught). He makes me feel like a rock star for doing what I do 😎4
"My code works, but I have no idea as to why or how. Even StackOverflow says it shouldn't work." -Me7
My parents my whole childhood:
What are you *** doing in front of that screen?!?!
Stop playing GAMES and go out and do something with your life!
You are WASTING your LIFE on ****!
You will NEVER get a job.
Today I am payed more than 20th times as my dad was payed in my age.
They finally stopped complaining.6
CAN SOMEBODY STOP THE TIME FOR A WHILE!!!
I HAVE TOO MUCH TO DO AND TOO LITTLE TIME!!!
PS. WHAT THE HELL AM I DOING IN DEVRANT?4
I quit my last job when I realized they lied to me straight up about what I was going to be doing. Told me it was software dev but different and when I got there it was tech support.
There were other people that had the same thing happen and they stuck around for eight years because they were always being told they might be able to transition to development next year. What a waste of good developers. Now that guy works for google and I am a senior developer at another undisclosed company. I quit that shit right away.1
Windows tells me to „contact the network administrator“.
I yell at the machine: „I AM THE ADMINISTRATOR!!!1!“
Why is Microsoft doing this? Instead of telling me what exactly went wrong, the come up with messages like
“This is not possible”
“Do you want to ask a Friend?”
I really hope the authors of those error messages will burn in hell for that!11
I decided to start learning Java. Here's my "progress" in one week:
Day 1: OMG, I love it.
Day 2: I understand everything, I think I was born for it.
Day 3: Can't wait for next leasson.
Day 4: Ok, I think I got it.
Day 5: Mhm..ok?
Day 6: I have to retake this leasson.
Day 7: I have no idea what I am doing.
At least I didn't run out of coffee.12
In school compiling android ROM and writing the shit teacher reads.
After 20 minutes the fans kick in and its fucking loud. (Quiet compared to when im gaming)
Teacher notices it and asks me wtf im doing.
So after 15 minutes i explained what im doing.
She had a problem with it that im using laptop for something that she didnt allow.
Well: Am i writing down what you are explaining ? Yes is this what i am supposed to do ? Yes Does it fucking matter that the laptop is doing something else in background ? Fuck no because im still doing what im supposed to. Im just cuting down the time because it takes 2.5 hours to compile you know. So bassically im just efficent with time.
After that i was allowed to compile.
How can people be so dumb??
So I am sitting in a class taught by the teacher from one of my previous rants (the one that got mad at me for using a terminal).
I was working on a new project and I had to look something up. I opened up my browser (chrome incognito)
I was searching in ddg with a dark theme and chrome had a dark theme. Another student beside me asks if I am on the "dark web" ( stuped comment #1.. )
My teacher then starts freaking out that I am doing "illeagal things " and tells me that I will be arrested...
There should be a "don't be dumb in tech" class for teachers.14
Today my mom gave me a 2 meter by 1,20 meter whiteboard. She says that that might help me to achieve my dreams with what i am doing on my computer. This is amazing.6
Me: So what you are doing in the IT field?
Him: I am hacking bank websites.
Me: OK, that's cool. It is good in free time. What is your actual job?
Him: I am seriously hacking the bank Web site!
Me: Trust me, if you seriously doing that you will never ever mentioned it...
Him: No, I am doing it legally... The bank hiring me to try to hack the website...
Me: OK, you mean that you are cyber security tester?
Him: That is almost the same...
Me: So you are tester?
Him: I am hacking bank's websites...
As a programmer, I either feel like I’m a god and I’m superior to everyone in this company OR I am an idiot and everyone knows what they are doing except me.
Programming is an illusion. It’s just a “feeling”. Programming doesn’t exist.12
My life in a nutshell.
I've been stuck in this timeless loop for 10 years, anyone that relates?
1. Set alarm before going to bed.
2. Alarm rings, I turn it off.
3. Wakes up late.
4. Work from 08 AM to 4 PM.
5. Take the train back home
6. Plan what to do for the rest of the day.
7. Come home, do everything except what was initially planned.
8. Watching time goes by while doing non-productive things.
9. I feel alone, watch porn to fill this void.
10. I get depressed and unhappy afterward
11. Set the alarm for the next day.
Am I the only one who, while in public, subconsciously look at what users are doing on their phones in effort to better understand the species known as "user"?6
after spending a day figuring out why my code does not work, i finally realized someone broke master
then i found myself in the following conversation
jim : "yeah, we found out about it yesterday, i am working on a fix right now"
me : "so why did you not send and email to everyone that master is broken, don't pull changes"?
jim : "hey... someone told me to fix it, so that's what i am doing. that doesn't include sending an email. if you want to, you can send it.. "7
Walk in on the first day and am told: "We don't have a computer for you yet and we're not sure where you're going to be sitting so just hang around for a bit."
"Ok...what will I be doing?"
"We're discussing that."
"So I'm to be spackle, then?"
"You'll use me once you see a hole that needs filling."5

How to annoy your teachers?
Be Extremely nice and motivated to 50% of them.
Be an asshole to the other.
At the end of they year, final conference, Shit will be lit15
was a member on a web developers group on Facebook.
someone posted a question:
- I am getting error 500, how can I fix it (yes just like that, no error message, not even what technology he's using)
comment 1 : how can I build a website please? (I mean, wtf, you can at least post a separate post)
comment 2: check your database, MySQL has problems bla bla ( yes, don't know how he guessed that ia the database is the problem, and who tell you he used MySQL anyway??)
Me: what the hell am I doing here?
*Quit the group*8
Git, Bitcoin, actually getting paid for writing PySnek.. What the fuck is this doing in my feed?
1. How the fuck are Git and Bitcoin related?
2. What the fuck makes you think that open source and getting paid don't usually go together, as if that makes your product unique?
3. What kind of drugs did this marketing cunt take to make this promotion, because I want some!
4. What kind of braindead idiot am I for not including the fucking picture before hitting submit?!12
made a password sniffer in python it was really easy how many of you took #100DaysOfCode i took the challenge 8 days today every day i am doing one project what do you think of the sniffer? it currently doesn't support SSL response but working on that right now this is good15
Is it expected for a new arrival to post a 'Hello World'? Only I don't normally do what's expected. Actually, I don't normally do normal. Then again, I don't know what I am doing most of the time. Or where I am. Or who I am.34
Zuckerburg just got finished building his own Jarvis-like A.I. to control his house, in under a year. What am I doing with my life6
1. My senior told me that my code is crashing.
2. I check the code and told him that it is not my doing. As there was lots of nested if-else as I prefer to keep a variable and update it in if conditions. Like a filters rather than trees with branches. What I say, I knew my coding style.
3. Then he show me my git commit and I am having existential crises.
Am I missing days? How can I? I mean was I abducted and in mean time some alien took my place and they placed this memory of me coding?
Ah! man I think I am possessed by some inexperienced developer. I seriously need some fucked up crash to exorcise him.3
Those days when you shut down computer and accidentally see your face reflected on the black screen just thinking "...what am i doing with my life?"...1
Yes, I love my parents.
But every fucking time I plan to buy a PC they will make some noise. I am not even touching their money to buy it yet they will make a fuss about it.
"All my son does is sit in front of computer whole day"
Sorry father but I am doing the same thing in my job. They are young enough to know what I am doing yet still keeps ranting on me.
I still love them but this is so annoying sometimes.6
With the new Dutch mass surveillance law comming soon, I am interested to know what you are doing with it?
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I don't live in the Netherlands?17
Boss calls: "Can you give me more bandwith?"
Me: "I can, but the other coworkers will have issues"
Boss: "Doesn't matter, and please, lift up the proxy too"
Me: "I am sorry, but I can't, that could compromise our security"
Boss: "I am giving you an order..."
Me: "Ok then..."
Me: *proceeds to give boss more bandwith and lifts up proxy (all is lost now)*
I go to see what is the boss doing with the bandwith...he was downloading League of Legends in his personal notebook...
TL;DR: Boss asks to put company at risk for the sake of a game...3
I should be studying, but what am I doing instead? Trying out all kinds of linux distros, partitioning my hard drive, trying to install a linux distro ... Help22
I am slowly breaking down.
I have to endure all of that stress.
Both physically and psychically.
I keep cutting myself without wanting it.
I am not attempting suicide lol.
I applied as an IT person.
What I am doing has almost barely to do with IT tho.
I am most of the time busy carrying heavy stuff like refrigerators, placing new washing machines, setting TVs by building them and putting them on the shelves. The shelves are hard to reach. At the same height as my head.
Fuck that shit already. I am not going to miss that place.45
You know, I am getting really fucking irate posting them rants about how shitty my job is.
I'm more than fucking competant, but this company is turning me into a blithering, raging, frothing maniac.
I am sitting doing my devOps at the moment. On top of that I am the network admin, the sys admin, the sec admin, the fucking fuck admin (you get the point) and now I am being told to go out and work in the field because "The technician is busy with calls, and doesn't have time". These calls are ALL FUCKING PRINTER CALLS. SET UP USERS TO PRINT AND FUCKING SCAN.
I am not being a shithead by saying no. I have spent the last year or so doing favours for these bastards, I don't get any compensation in any form for it, and it is just making my life hell. The reason I went into devOps is so that I don't have to fucking deal with shit like this. I spent years in the field, and I fucking hated it. I was good at what I did, but I fucking hated it.
Now I am back there. They earn more than i do, those printer techs, but I am doing their fucking work for them. I have even made them simple little fucking scripts so that 90% of their work is done in two clicks.
Fucksakes. Now my motherfucking right shift key doesn't want to operate properly. Been using this keyboard for about 6 years now, and now it decides to fuck out. Fuck.
As standing, I am fucking sick and fucking tired. I am drinking energy drinks and mass amounts of coffee just to stay functional (because I sit up until 12AM trying to get through all my work - everyday of the week). Reported to tech director, doesnt give a single fuck. "Stick around, things will get better".
Yeah, fuck you.
Seriously thinking about freelancing.
Don't know if it pays well though.3
Today i implemented something of such a complexity that the part of my brain i am in could not follow it.
(Really guys. I did not know what i was doing. I only knew i had to do it exact this way)
This feeling when you are in a tunnel and unstoppable. I even documented what i did.
Sadly i do not even understand my thoughts there xD
I wrote about three hours straight and then run a test. And the only mistake was a variable not filled as described. Used another one and it run smoothly as hell.
Today i will drink a beer on whatever part of me did this. Cheers6
This rant goes to my best friend.
You do not fucking argue with people for doing what they like! So what if I want to use linux? What fucking problem does that make? Am I now a hacker fanboy for wanting to use a terminal instead of fucking pointing and clicking on shit like a monkey? Am I not allowed to want my privacy and free open-source? What? I shouldn't browse internet without getting my personal info stolen? Oh, they're tracking criminals? Then why don't you install a camera in your fucking living room so you can help them out? And don't fucking get me started on why I don't want to use Windows 10.
Fuck fucking fuck fuck. I know he's a good friend but this fucking shit gets my blood boiling.8
Oh look, Facebook released yet another thing...
*half arsed celebration*
It hasn't been out 10 minutes but it's already the "BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED EVER"
Am i the only one that sees what they are doing. They are creating their own versions of popular projects to gain a monopoly on open source...what a bunch of cunts.
P.S - OPEN SOURCE SHOULDN'T INCLUDE FUCKING PATENTS.
*cue whiney piss babies*5
I am quitting my job in the next couple of weeks. I don't even have a job lined up. I can't deal with doing Design work as a developer when you have a whole ass design team. Like what the fuck. Then I nearly do development. Oh and your gonna bitch at me when I mess up in design, then threaten to fire me? Well you can shove that shit all up your entire ass. Fuck this Job. I am doing my own thing. I don't care if I become homeless cause Fuck I'll be more happier I did that then be at this concentration camp. I am gonna live my life and own. Cause fuck everything corporate Jobs is fucking life sucking. Please Fire me. I GIVE NO FUCKS ANYMORE. Sick of being depressed and stressed. I want to be a real developer!!!! argghhhhhhhhhhhh9
I find it amusing that if you tell an SMTP server "quit", it responds "Bye" before closing the connection...
It's the little things in dev life...1
I have that one friend, every time he ask what I am doing and I tell him I am coding, he tells me that he wants to programme too but has no idea how to start.
I always tell him to Duck duck go start programming python/java but he never does...
(I think I somehow created an infinite loop)16
Never before I have shared my feelings with all great, kind developers. I always wanted to be the healthy, active & passionate member of this family...but never know what to say!!
Made an account earlier as well .. but thought I am not ready I always had some lame excuses so never shared anything before.
I am doing a fresh start now , able to convince myself to share something..
Hi !! to all the developers who are making this family truly amazing and fantastic :)6
Person: What are you doing for living?
Me: I am a software engineer.
P: what does that mean?
M: we build applications and websites. basically
P: like what?
M: I don't have an example now, but when you open your computer and navigate to a website, we build similar things..
P: ahhaaah, so you make computers
M: no no, *open Facebook on my phone* see this is an application, we made applications that run on devices.
P: so make phones, that's cool
P: so you do nothing !
M: yes 🙄2
I am 30.
Just now I see that if I rewrite documentation of things I learn online with my own words (aka taking fucking notes) I learn with 5x quality.
For some reason I didn't do this most of my 20s.
what the fuck am I doing with my life?18
What am I doing right now? Scamming scammers.
I'm attempting to build a delicious Windows honey pot for scammers to play in only to be terribly disappointed by how buggy it is.
That's right mother fucker I've rigged this computer to not work on purpose!
Have fun trying to run your shitty programs and steal data that isn't there.
Oh by the way if you want to play in this playground it's www.scammer.info3
I overclocked my pc tonight... but it doesnt seem to have made a difference... :-S what am i doing wrong? :-S2
So I never had a proper education in IT. Started web development as a hobby, then some people started giving me money for it, and here I am, working as a fulltime web dev since 2001 and SEO expert since 2010.
Still, I sometimes wonder how much I really know compared to some fresh coder who just got out of university.
I know how to create great software from A to Z, but still I sometimes get the feeling that I am missing the fundamental basics.
Is that weird?4
Annoying thing happened at work as usual -> can't get the mood to code -> procrastinate -> finally get my shit together -> get some work done -> shit it's 07.00 PM I should be going home already -> still coding because I started late -> shit it's 09.00 PM -> get the fuck home -> I need time to be alone and relieve stress by surfing the web -> shit it's 02.00 AM -> try to get some sleep -> Why did she left me? How's dad doing? God I think I that function that I coded today is awful, gotta fix it tomorrow. Am I going to afford a house EVER? Fuck what I'm doing with my life. -> Shit it's 05.00 AM, I MUST SLEEP. -> (kinda sleep) -> Fuck it's 10.00 shit shit shit shit -> arrive at work -> I'm not ready to open the code -> procrastinate -> ...4
1. Find a project tutorial.
2. Understand maybe 5% of what I'm doing.
3. Alter the project, ultimately breaking it.
4. Spend the few hours Googling.
5. Scrap it.
6. Redo it, exactly the same. It works this time.
I'll get there eventually. I think.5
*Open devRant on my phone
*Scrolling, laughing, do things.
*Enough devRant now, close the app
*Open devRant on my laptop
Me: What am I doing here !
I feel lonely on my way back to home. I am a bit depressed while listening to the song "Alone" by Alan Walker. Because I code alone all day and I am single. There is a shop in my neighbourhood. It has its light turned on this night, perhaps just to increase its exposure. But, there is something so shiny that caught my attention. It is a smiling duck. I don't know what the duck is doing right there. I havent seen it before. But the shop is closed now.
At this moment, I realize it could be my friend when I don't have a friend.4
Complete and total rant:
You know what fucking confuses the holy fucking shit out of me? DESIGN
I have MAD respect for motherfuckers that spend their days tailoring shit away in CSS, writing custom animations and toggles in JS and ensuring that their HTML is pristine as fuck. I really do and in my opinion they should b getting mad props from everyone, because if they so decide to learn GOOD server side scripting then they are most definitely on their way to create some awesome functional and beautiful shit.
I am not a designer by any means of it. And I know that shit is supposed to look good and work across a multitude of devices. Doing something like that takes me a couple of lines of code (granted, after hours of work that is) that may take a designer way less.
But why oh why do I see THOUSANDS of lines of CSS code for shit that does not take me half the amount of work that it takes other people?
Like seriously. I am trying to emulate the menu that university of Chicago uses(as an example for a lil design practice cuz i suck at it) and looking into their CSS I see thooooousands of lines of code to do something that I did in about two hundred.
So wtf man, do I suck so hard that I am missing some serious shit? wtf is happening? This confuses me, because in my mind it should take me just about as much work as it takes them right?
AGAIN MAD RESPECT FOR DESIGNERS -- If you are a designer reading this please tell me wtf is happening14
The thing is that I have told my family a few times what I really do at work. But I have to be honest: explaining what a backend dev does is hard without showing a GUI 😂
Sometimes I even think for myself: wtf am I doing here... 😁1
I do IT work along side my dev work. I had a Dr come up to me and ask me if I had time to help him pick out a personal computer... (Mother fucker I am on lunch break) "Sure" I say... "What's your budget, what will you be doing with the computer?" Dr - "I don't mind spending $6,000 and I want it for minor gaming..."
MUST BE FUCKING NICE!6
I am a windows user but just wanted to say arch linux .. it just sounds nice
hey, I'm going to arch linux for a bit
what are you doing? I'm arching linux
hey, stop arching with my linux
btw, is it pronounced ark or arch?4
So I was wondering, what is you guys' 'goal' in the long run? What do you really want to be able to do or what do you really want to achieve in 5 to 10 years? Are you working primarily for an income or are there more prominent reasons for doing what you do?
I'm in my last years of university and have a job at a software development company, not because I need the money but because of all the amazing technologies I come in touch with and the amazing things I learn, mostly about servers and devops tools.
I currently have 2 goals in mind: Creating an .io game together with a frontend developer and setting up a kubernetes cluster and using it. I personally consider kubernetes an end-game thing when it comes to running apps and am experimenting with it on three servers that I got from school.
So I was wondering, what ahout you? 😀36
Guys, I am an idiot.
I can't believe I have wasted so much time. I can't believe it. Instead of learning and practicing Java, I spent my school break mostly playing TF2 and doing pushups. I am a dissapointment to myself. I am asking myself "what the hell are you thinking you idiotic, blunderous, lazy idiot?" And I am the president of the School's Computer Science club.
To be honest, I am probably not taking this as seriously as I should, because my club has only one person in it, who is one of my friends. Because my club is so new (yes I created it this year, becuase the school didn't have one, and yes I am a freshman) it seems like noone joined. I am thinking of writing an advert for the morning annauncements, so more people would join so the club wouldn't be scrapped next year.
So please, please, please, please, help me. Help me with the advertisement. I know this is really irresponsible, but I don't have much time left 'till the next semester begins.16
😸:oh hi, i came in early to checkout this game, but i was just about to get off and start work.
😎:I'm not your boss. I don't caire what you do.
👺:I am your boss, and as long as you get the work done, on time, and done well, I don't care if it looks lie you are doing nothing but being paid to play games. If anyone does bother you about playing games at work let me and I will let them know to leave you alone.3
Guy sees me on my laptop and says "is that Linux?". I say yes then he says he is into computer "stuff and can hack anything". Not having a clue what that means I replied with a "awesome".
I don't have really any friends that are into "computers", so I decided to play ball.
I asked, "Are you into coding?.. he says, "Yes". Then I ask, " What languages?" He says, " Just what ever, anything really, it depends on what I am doing."
At this point I understand what is going on but it is so awkward. He continues.. "Recently I used.. what's it called abd or adb, you know I like rooted my phone"...
And let's talk about something else....
Why do people feel the need to lie or whatever you might call what happened. It might be different I think if he wasn't about 40.
I feel like this is a pretty common story4
No, brain. I don't need to know Python.
Shut up, you already know Ruby, PHP, and a fuckton of front-end tech, you don't need to --
Do you remember the 3 projects that we aren't working on anymore because we have the PS4 and Assassin's Creed?
I already have a job, moron! It sounds fun, but we...
What am I doing on codecademy?2
Up until last year I was pre-med. I graduated college with a bachelors in Biology. Took my MCAT, prepped my med school applications for submission, and then realized I didn’t wanna pursue this pseudo-dream I had for so long. I realized the reality of the sacrifice and the lifestyle I was gonna make and began to regret not studying what I truly liked to be doing on my off time which is computers and programming. Long story short, here I am back in school getting a degree in CS, and can whole heartily admit, I’m happy doing/learning what I love.
It’s amazing how life works. Never would I have imagined that I’d make a switch like that, but I know it’s the best decision I’ve made so far.4
The job I am interning at wants to hire me. Yay.
But they want to start me at basic programmer salary, which makes me feel really sad about doing another 1.5 years of specialisation education.
Just to get hired at the salary of what I could have started at 1.5 years ago.
They even keep talking about how competent I am, and how easy it has been implementing me.
I studied to specialise so it would be easy.
Fucking pay the convenience fee.7
Some people just lack so much independence, damnit!
Einmal mit Profis arbeiten ... ! (*) 😒
(*) German expression that expresses depending on tone or context a mild to severe frustration as well as the desire to work with qualified people just ... once?! Maybe?! Please?! Often used in IT and dev contexts, because - you know.12
I'm having quite a hard time.
For my studies, I'm doing some research minor atm. And it's basically a 10 hour a week job for me atm. I have literally nothing else to do. No I do not do side projects, I do not aim to be a developer in the future.
This is causing me to sleep about 12hrs each night until it's impossible for me to fall asleep again. I just do not see any point in getting up unless I actually have something planned (meeting bf/friend). It's gotten to the point where I've actually cancelled plans because they didn't give me enough motivation to get up.
Since this is my last year in college, I am also stressing out about what to do next year because I cannot think of anything I enjoy doing.
I am worried abiut my health at this point. Any tips?14
Me: so, what are you doing as a developer?
Him: I am full-stack developer, basically ROR...
Me:...! Sorry, do you mean R&D, research and development? Or you mean Aroura DB?
Hi: no man, I am expert in ROR! You can not call your self developer in our days without knowing the on demand technologies!
Me:... Sorry dude, can you please tell me what is ROR, I don't want to lose my title as a developer!!!?
Him: OK, we call Ruby On Rails as ROR.
I like to joke around when I am working. I understand that it's not everyone's cup of tea, but ffs you should be able to laugh at really complex problems in stressful situations. How else can you remain sane writing thousands of lines of code just for an e-commerce site or so someone can post even more cat pictures on the Internet.
If you can't laugh and enjoy what you are doing, you might want to rethink what you are doing with your life.3
Do not wave you phone around during a video interview. Don't turn it upside down. Don't put keep your hand near it -- I am not interested in your finger nails. Don't pace around. Don't look like a YouTuber that has no idea what they are doing on a video conference.
That is all.3
I'm a 16 yrs old student, learning to be a software developer. I have successes, but I can't share with anyone. My parents don't understand what am I doing, my classmates neither. Literally nobody. Maybe 1 or 2 people. Can I share with you, dear devRant community? Or I shouldn't share, 'couse it's not a rant?16
Client gives me long talk about how important their website is to them. Repeatedly have to reassure them I know what I am doing. Still badger me about being super secure. Their password is the same as their username for their website hosting.1
Working on what you love may be the most dangerous trap i have ever been told.
Why? You may work on what you love, but for a person that you don't. This will be the most thing that you will encounter on your career. I have been programming since i was 11 and my passion was sucked by my jobs.
And that's why all of my other hobbies will ever become a job, no matter how much people think i am good at it, the only reason i am good at my hobbies is because i don't do it for a living.
You can work on what you love, but don't expect expressing yourself at your job.
There is the Entrepreneurship route, where, instead of sucking your own passion, you should be sucking your employees passion, if you are doing it right.4
What the real fuck?! My phone's storage is decreasing automatically. I am not doing a fucking thing! And it's still going on. Only 145 MB of free storage is left. My phone is hanging a lot and apps are crashing. I can't do a fucking thing on my phone!
I checked storage in settings. Everything looks fine. But the Misc. This fucking thing is holding 9.85 GB, and when I open it, it shows only 1.9 GB. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK?!
It feels like no matter what i fucking try at this point, the universe is doing everything in its power to stop me from succeeding.............. I got so fucking depressed that i am literally writing code and crying in the same time.........6
Just tried out Minecraft's shader mod SEUS and wondering what the fuck am I doing with my life being a web dev and not working on graphics.
If you have an nvidia gpu, please give it a try.
This is an example with PBR textures, it's mind blowing https://youtu.be/RbM5w9CBDIw
INB4 comment like "peasant web dev wants to do graphics lmao"13
Hello everyone, first time ranter here! I have been studying Computer Science for 2 years starting September. The program introduced me to Java,HTML,CSS, JS and php. I feel like even though I am currently studying this I still do not "know" how to code. For example when I look at my classmates when they code it all seems so effortless and smooth, if they run into an issue they will usually solve it within the hour where as when I run into an issue I struggle to even see what the problem is. So the real point of this rant is, how do I improve? I am currently doing the #100daysofcode to get better but sometimes I feel so far away from calling myself a "developer" what is your road to the "developer" title? did you struggle as much as I am at the moment? or did you just sail into it like my classmates?16
I've became a better dev/sysadm since I've got a girlfriend. She has no freaking clue what I am doing when I'm working or sitting in front of my laptop. But she's often interested in the things i'm talking or ranting about when somthing doesn't work out like i've planned or some stupid problem occurs that I'm not able to fix. I am so glad i've got her. :)2
almost a year ago, i have no idea of what i was doing at work cause everything was new: coding languages, databases, clients, co-workers, etc. i had 0 experience and i am back here again on devRant after 3836382 years and i am proud to say i've learnt so much and have been promoted to Project Manager. im happy asf and i am now ready for another round of dev rants!14
Wish me luck! Just landed a new exciting job as full stack developer! Finally I get to do what I truly want!!!
I can't express how happy I am right now! Finally done with being a supporter!! (was originally hired to only manage Windows servers and not doing external customer support)5
I have been drawing nothing but FUCKING CIRCLES on pieces of paper, and it has slowly piled up on my desk over the course of a week. I have been getting stares from people in other departments, and I am pretty sure they think I am starting to lose it.
I finally implemented something today tho, and all that doodling and spaghetti code was totally worth it to see it actually fucking work on the first run. Jesus Christ, I fucking love my job.5
Bought cup noodle to save time and hassle. Forgot to turn on the electric kettle. Pour the water into cup without checking temperature. In the end, have to cook with the pot anyway. What the **** am I doing?5
I have couple dev ambitions some of them are:
- to become better in what I am doing and get a higher position.
- to build my own product.
- to educate young programmers.
I'm a CS student at a university in the global top 10. We currently have two courses using Java, where we have to submit our work to a judge program. One of them is running Java 7. the second one Java 6! Come on, what year is it? Just update your fucking software and the assignments, you lazy fucks!
First rant. Am I doing this right?5
In love with Laravel events, listeners and mailables. What a beautiful way of doing this. Can't say how much I love this framework. <3
Can't wait to implement redis and queues. Am excited to try this for the first time. Share exp. if you have, pls.6
You really start to question your choices in life when you can't get hired or get paid freelance work, so you apply to help (for free) on Catchafire... and get rejected.2
Been drinking like a litre of beer yesterday after a long day of work, came home like at 2.35 AM.
Today's gonna be a long day and I only slept 6h40m and I'm still feeling drunk.
What an awesome way to start working!
Also, making an AR project in unity, doing stuff I dunno how to do11
So I went through the first round Google interview process and was declined for not "finishing fast enough" even though I did in fact solve the problem in the allotted time.
Either it's a BS excuse and they were just interviewing me to interview me for a quota or there is some invisible time limit that I am not aware of.
Really annoys me when I just don't know exactly what I'm doing wrong and instead get what feels like cop out answers.4
What am I doing with my life... but hey, at least there's some devRant notifications I can go through.8
Just started my exams training! (Doing a study called Application Development).
The application doesn't sound that complicated but I have to implement a data exporting feature. Sounds alright, doesn't it?
THE 'CLIENT' DOES NOT KNOW WHAT DATA FORMAT THE FICTIVE CUSTOMERS CAN PARSE/HANDLE BUT I HAVE TO MAKE IT GENERIC SO THAT THEY CAN USE IT ANYWAYS. HOW THE FUCKING FUCK AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW WHAT FUCKING FORMAT I SHOULD CHOOSE?!? SHOULD I TRY TO SMELL IT OR SOMETHING?
I am scared... I'm scared because the code works.. but it shouldn't work I mean it's not supposed to get triggered and I have no idea what triggers it. It feels like my program got cursed and started doing things on it's own. I even put up blocks to stop the function from triggering but it still works... It always works.. I am scared...7
Can any regular job make a person happy? No matter what the pay or content of the job is, I get bored easily and disappointed at myself.
I have more fire inside me when I am doing personal projects but am not entrepreneur myself either.10
WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK. What is this dude talking about?! What am I doing with my life?!?!
Test what? What do I have to do? I didn't study this. I don't know what this API thing is. My life sucks. My job sucks. I suck. I'm stupid, because apparently knowing who or what this API is is essential for being a normal part of society.
I don't even.. oh someone pls kill me.
(No I don't want a detailed explanation what I have to do - I know this is not google and i wont understand it anyways and my husband will torture me with it in the afternoon. Just some sympathy for a finance person who has to deal with this would be nice)9
When company gave me a SSH I am a noob I have a filezilla what I do is delete all temp files and clear log files
Because the log file size goes 1gb After next day all are looking weird
Senior developer:wtf are you doing yesterday
Me: delete all the tmp files and log files 😂😂20
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.
There is just one thing that's been haunting me.
That I have yet to succeed at doing.
That I have yet to understand it's mazehole.
That I failed me as a developer.
How in the FUCK do I create my own mail server with my own domain name? HOW? JUST FUCKING HOWWWWW
WHAT THE FUCK IS THE SECRET!
WHAT AM I MISSING!!!!!
(no don't tell me about any of those office 365/GoDaddy/Windows bullshit, just guide me with something normal)8
I haven't had this much fun re-doing a front-end in years!
So what's your opinion on bulma.io (and/vs bootstrap) ? :)4
2 weeks before release of my App.
Have implemented nearly all major features.
Everytime I tell myself ah I can work tomorrow. What am I doing instead? Fucking Gaming lol.
Motivation is a bitch...5
Recently (last 6 month) I am getting a feeling like I don't know what to do in my life. I don't have any short and long term plan for my life. No ambition and no will power to do anything. procrastinating all task and doing them when there is no time.
Recently I was offered equity in my company and I don't know if I want that. I don't have any answer to any question in my life.
Does anyone know what to do?8
Why do I have to "grow" into a managerial role? I like doing what I am doing and would like to do it more. Anyone with some serious advice on how to stay relevant in software development with greying hair and without growing into people management?4
First day on the new job :) I am getting paid more than what I was doing in my other job while doing less and what I will be doing is mostly front end with small bits of php and cms :) fucking stocked man!! You telling me I get to play with react, angular or whatever I want? Omgisudisjzusjdhieeid3
Here I am just tryna browse a site and this stupid attempt to trick me into falling for a scam pops up. There is no way to stop the pop up because I can’t tap anything fast enough. Not even restarting the browser because it remembers this as the last URL it had accessed. Looks like I have to uninstall and reinstall chrome. Honestly, if you’re a scammer, what the hell is the point of doing this? What idiot is going to call the number? All it does is annoy you to the point of suspicion. Or maybe there are people stupid enough!?7
So, I am feeling low in life. I want to do so many things and not a single one is going as planned. On top of that Bitcoin has taken a plunge and my funds are stuck with a shitty exchange and I cannot withdraw till tomorrow.
Le a github issue appears and I am thinking what went wrong now. I had added a few new features to the app which would have broken the old configurations. So, I ask this guy to re-configure and test.
After about 2 hours I get a reply from the guy saying "Thanx for the great new features and for creating this great open source project!!!"
This made my day. And I am thinking Life's good. Life is so easy and we make it so difficult for us. The first thing I am doing after this review is write this rant. Now back to work.2
If you look over at my desk and I am 'doing nothing', feel free to assume one of the following:
1) I finished what I had to do and am taking a quick break before tackling what's next.
2) I am working on something that is giving me a hard time and am taking a quick pause to refresh.1
A fellow student and me were shit talking during the lecture. We said something like "if loops" and dumb shit like that.
The girl who was sitting in front of us overheard the word "if loop" and began to ask the prof what an if loop is.
We both laughed; the prof did a cheeky grin while doing a nasty look towards us.
Am I a bad person?6
I'm learning Python and thought I'd start with web services since that's a concept I'm familiar with. My question is, in the attached code, am I doing it right when it comes to python? Cuz I feel like I'm following the same structure I follow in C# WebAPI and NodeJs
What about naming style? Is is the default for python? cuz I'm also using C# naming style :\
Thanks in advance ranters :)26
In a lecture and all the guy is doing is reading out of a book that was handed out at the start of term.
The saying those who can no do teach and those who can not teach teach maths comes to mind.
What am I paying for...2
An old client came back to me stating that I didn't fix the last change he requested a month ago. I went in old emails, found out what he needed, tried the website, it was doing exactly what he wanted.
I wrote to him with confusion asking what was he wanted me to fix.
"It's not working"
"No, it's not. Can't you see?"
I attached old email conversations and sent him to see for himself.
"I am not talking about that." I want it to work like this, like that, blah blah blah.
Fucking asshole. Tell me you wanted new feature in the website.
I am in love.
I am in love with all the guys and girls working at Microchip support.
I am the kind of user that does not really understand what he's doing/what he wants to do, so I am constantly stuck in stupid configuration errors or looking for impossible solutions, yes I am THAT kind of a user...
Here is a PWM working, a support guy spent some minutes telling me that I have to connect to the right pin.
Ok, he had to tell me twice.😳
Thank you, it may have taken me days to find out this.
They does not know, but there is a HUGE amount of decreasing dumb question incoming 😈
Please be kind with me, and don't get mad when things will get serious, I will probably bring hell in your office, I am very sorry for that...
Still, thank you for helping the dumbest learner-by-mistake that doesn't know how to recognize a mistake.
I can't write this in the ticket system, I hope someone of you use devRant! (atsame54 office, I am talking with you!)
You are my stack overflow, and the project I will develop with your help is quite the only thing left before my graduate.
I will owe you so much beers, love you guys!!!
I am making my first dashboard/summary page without a tutorial! Once I learn D3 via a Udemy course, this will be 93% done!
I just want want to see what you guys think?
Some text is removed as I shared it on FB and the business I am making it for is following me and they have NO idea that I am doing it for them.5
this morning i felt so inspired and very productive so i finished the whole project in a few hours! they posted the pdf file explaining what the program should do and i just told myself "im going to start doing it before class so i can ask if i have questions later." but in the end i finished it all on my own so i am so proud of myself!
p.s. it's supposed to be submitted in December so i guess i have more free time or maybe i'll do the next project which will be submitted next year and be more advanced 😃2
Since there is Scrum i am programmer , tester , software engineer , networking guy and application manager. Thank you Scrum didnt know that before. And i have no idea what i am doing right now ....3
So what am I doing for valentines day? So far, I've walked for 18KM.. 3KM less than my previous record.
My feet are going to hate me tomorrow but my wallet sure will be in love with me 😂3
So I am a marvel fan and have an Espruino Pico, after scavenging left over parts from a home renovation project I realised I had all the bits to built a replica iron man arc reactor chest piece.
I figured it'd be a fun little electronics project, so I have thick copper wire that needs shaping.
I have my pliers, gloves and a gas stove. My lodgers walk into the kitchen...
Them: "What the hell are you doing?!"
Me: "We don't have a forge."
I'm one of those self improvement assholes. I want to always strive to be better and to see what works and what doesn't.
One way to keep track of how satisfied I am with my life, I have a prompt at 20:00 to self report a score, 1-5 how happy I am.
It's like a minimal journaling system. Sometimes I motivate why I feel like shit.
Does anyone here do something similar? Not counting your GitHub commits.
Do you track progress when doing things in some visual way? Projects, working out, whatever.
Here's a post of my life a few months going back. I kind of like this system.11
Get up early to try to figure out how to get my personal business off the ground.
I guess the first thing is respond to the stupid IRS and file my late tax returns as their estimation of taxes is just ridiculously incorrect.
Then figure out exactly why I incorporated and what to build.
Guess I am doing this backwards.2
When you hash time entries by year and you are freaking out to make sure your server doesn’t crash due to differing time zones while your family is celebrating New Year’s...2
First pro dev job, and I feel like I have no idea what I am doing. Yet I have been pushing features, but I got this feeling I ain’t going to be able to keep it up!3
Does anybody know how Google, Microsoft, Apple etc autocomplete their code demos in live sessions? They tend to type out short codes and voila lines of code appear. They must be doing some sort of code mapping and this is what I am curios on how to do.
I am curios on how to do this in Xcode and/or in Brackets for a Python script.
Watch the next seven seconds of this Google I/O to see what I am talking about.
PS: At the beginning of the presentation, they have four presenters on stage so I know for a fact that a human is typing out the code and its not a pre-recording of any sorts.6
I can follow and am fine with the Vue documentation. I go crazy when I read online tutorials. I don't know webpack. I don't know ES6. I don't know nodejs. Arrghhh.
It is like all of a sudden I'm thrown into an English speaking courtroom as a lawyer or into a bunch of Brits.
I explain what im doing to someone else and ask the question "does that make sense or am i just being a twat?" most of my colleagues are honest enough to answer "you're being a twat because..." if im doing something mental
Mum and dad and any other non techy people
1. what i am doing
2. If i can earn money with the product i am making.....2
I have to boot into Windows today so I can create a C# Soap API client to test and see what the headers look like so I can recreate them in PHP.
I am so neurotic I am having qualms about booting and working in Windows and it is taking some time to work up to doing this.
Before anyone starts. I need Windows because it has helper programs to build your Soap Client, specifically svcutil.exe which is only available in the full blown Windows version of VSCode. If I could peer inside svcutil.exe I could probably manage without booting Windows, but I can't so I have to.14
What I should do: Go back to doing construction and get into house flipping
What Id actually do: Be salty AF move to some tropical island and sell italian ice on the beach. I am not going back to construction lol4
So it began with i finally decided to change to linux ubuntu.
An error screen pops up if i remove the usb now. But if i didnt and press restart, the install screen reappears again prompting me to either try ubuntu, or install.
What am i doing wrong then? Thanks a lott.19
I just spent a whole day learning wordpress cause it's mandatory for my graduation project and I'm still not quite sure what I'm doing.
Our team (devs and QAs) have been doing a series of overtime work.
So, the company has provided us a place to sleep. Everyday, we would go to work at 10AM and then return to our place to rest at 12 midnight (sometimes at 2AM).
We've been doing this for a week now and we'll resume again tomorrow.
I already feel exhausted, and I was thinking of resigning after all of this mess was over.
However, I am having second thoughts. Since this is my first job, I have no point of comparison.
Perhaps a series of overtime like this one is normal? Is this type of work environment to be expected when being a developer? Or am I selling my self short and there are better options out there? What do you devs think?12
For some reason I stopped doing things I love lately. Everyday I used to go online, read Java documentation, practice it. Afterwards I'd play some games or something, work on a school project, etc.
But for the past few weeks, I have barely touched any code. I have no idea why. I also haven't played any games for the past three weeks. I am only starting to get back into my usual thing since like 4 days ago. What is happening? Am I depressed or something? probably...5
I am a web developer and assigned in a project as Infrastructure Engineer AND Penetration Tester because no one is available. I survived that hellish experience, i learned clustering and other advance stuff on my own, studying even late at night, no training..just youtube videos. PM (who is currently has little to no involvement in this stage) has very little appreciation in what im doing(research, server estimates, diagramming, documentation, planning)2
For me it is not difficult to explain other people what I am doing as a programmer, but what company I am working for. We write software for the administration of cemeteries. People often look at me like I am joking. So I was wondering: What was your weirdest project/Job as a developer?1
So here I am, analyzing a binary file for a small hacking challenge, asking myself what the hell am I doing. As if 13 hours at school weren't enough.8
P.M (calm) : You are not taking ownership of your works as others. You are only just doing it .
Me (concentrating face) : Inside -> I am fucking underpaid for a long and a month delay in salary. What the fuck are you expecting . You are saying this when you are about to give me a rise ?5
So I started at a new company about two months ago. I was hired as a Senior .net developer, which I am well qualified. I also told them that I did MVC but haven’t done react or angular.
So my first project with this company is building a react-native app. (Never done a native app either) The craziest thing is I am the most senior on this project too.
What is even crazier, I still work for my old company on the side, and the only .net I am doing is for them. And even funnier, my old company thought the reason I was leaving was to do more .net development.2
1. Study a chapter in ISLR
2. Try to understand source code of an open source project in GoLang.
3. Complete programming challenges on HackerRank
What I am going to end up doing:
1. Watching videos of The Rock trolling others.
2. Watch Family Guy2
I am working on my personal resume website (with a lot of css and jQuery).
Two days ago, I got a job offer, so I started preparing for the interviews, leaving the website aside.
Then, yesterday that company turned me down. So, I left the interview preps and started working on website again.
Then, today there is another job opening and I am now again preparing for interviews, keeping the website on a pause again.
Also, I have my internal exams coming up this weekend.
I don't know what should I do. Idk what I am doing. 😥😥7
love hate kinda deal with this. But I am creating a program in answer set programming that would help me analyze famous chess matches from legends such as B Fischer, Carlsen, etc in an effort to stop at one point and predict what could have happened differently in the match in order to make the other player win. I am adding limiters as to not propagate into every fucking solution in existence else the processing power required to solve this shit would be all too hardcore. I learned about this programming paradigm in one of my graduate level classes using a tech known as Clingo, which is similar to Prolog. I am doing it cuz I sucked at Clingo and because of my pride I aim to make this project a reality to properly say that I know how to use it.
current status: failing somewhat miserably4
FML, somebody here or somewhere wrote that al customers lie..
Just been a witnes to that.. Over skype (mind I reminded them to write to jira on several occasions so others can help if I am out of office) feature xy is not working.. I log in to server, I see no logs of person a doing anything with our system, let alone use the xy feature... Well duh, of course it doesn't work, it's not a freakin mind reader.. :/
Next time no help, no log checking, no nothing until they provide ss of what exactly they were doing.. :/ Fuuuuu....3
Working on something...
-Hun?! Why the hell doesn't it work?
Attempt a few fixes...
-Still doesn't work? Damn what am i doing wrong?
Attempt other changes...
-Why is it still not working!?
Debug step by step, validate my values are fine...
-Why does my output not correspond to my values!?! What the hell is this black magic!?
Rebuild the same solution for the 5th time...
-...Why does it work now...1
Nothing shits me more than being interrupted every two hours for a "huddle". Shove your buzzword up your ass and fuck off so I can actually get some work done. What am I currently working on? The same fucking thing I was doing before you interrupted me again for a status update.2
Heya. Now I feel like a fool for asking and it has been bothering me for a while.
I want to get into native application development, but I simply cannot wrap my head around how to connect a backend to the frontend.
I have been doing web development, I understand the concept of endpoints and I am able to do http requests for web apis etc. But when it comes to creating it in some native application, I have no clue what to do.
Does anyone have a good post or video that describes these connections, as for some reason I cannot seem to find any.
Hope it's understandable,
I don’t know what I am ? Analyst ? Programmer? Engineer? Consultant? I seem to be doing a shit load of non programming stuff2
So today I inherited an iPhone app written for iPhones 3 & 4 in Objective-C.
I am facing two not so unique problems:
1. I hate Objective-C so I quickly converted it to Swift but as expected I created a tonne of errors and warnings that I am working through
2. The developer(s) didn't think it important enough to leave a solitary comment explaining what the hell they were doing.
So looking forward to a few weeks of swearing and getting myself all upset trying to get this app to work in a complete information black hole.3
Hello everyone !
I am a self taught programmer. Currently in last semester in electronics engineering. I want to become a software developer but can't decide the right career path for me to take. I like back end, Android, Data structures and algorithm, Parallel programming, Machine learning and computer vision, and even security. I am afraid I will remain the jack off all trades and won't be the master of any. This way I won't be doing any good in my career. Any advice as what to do ?7
Every internship i am doing, i somehow end up being the only person working on the android, with no other person remotely knowing any stuff about it, even though the company's only user related product is an android app.
I want to have some fucking mentor or senior damn it to give me *some* tasks, why are you asking me to make everythin?
Damn , what have i gotten myself into3
I lately get frustrated seeing that, while I am truly making progress with my dev skills, I seem to not reach that point where I can say that I'm satisfied with myself.
Each week I find out that what I was doing was not the best solution so I refactor and do it better only to repeat the process again the following week.
So if I look back I see the progress but at the same time, I don't see myself nowhere near the point where I can say "I'm doing a decent job", instead I got used to the idea that whatever I'm doing is going to be replaced with something better and more efficient.
I know that perfecting is not achievable, thus I know that there will always be a better way to do things, but I don't feel moving forward either. I feel stuck in a tutorial.2
Doing pair programming while I was navigating on somebody else's computer, we hit a weird behavior that our code changes weren't reflected.
Trying everything it turned out: I forgot to save.
Yet: Why though would you make me save? And why did the IDE not warn me about compiling unsaved changes? I think it was eclipse for Java, oh well. What can I expect ...
Anyways, I have gotten so used to my editors autosaving content for me as I write it, that I completely forget about doing Ctrl + S myself.
I never understood the need to hit that key combination manually as if I break something: `get reset --hard` will help to get me to a working state. (And even if I mess it up differently, my IDE's local history also let me restore recent changes.) And if it is a workign state, then I like to commit early and often. and
I am really dumbfounded why people insist on hitting save themselves.8
i hate this fucking life so much why do i have to fucking exist WHAT IS THE FUCIJG POINT OF DOING SOMETHING YOU HATE WITH PASSION DOIMG AND NOT DOING WHAT U WANT TO BE DOING I DO NOT UNDERSTA D THIS LIFE
THIS existence/life is the Biggest BITCH i have ever fucking met FUCK YOU
CANNOT BE SUCCESSFUL DOING SOMETHING YOU HATE.
there was a philosopher who said "this life is pain and the only purpose of living is to reduce this pain as much as possible in order to be more happy" WHAT THE FCUK THAT IS MORE DEPRESSING THAN HAVING A FKIG CANCER
WHY DONT I JUST GET SOME INCURABLE DISEASE INSTEAD OF LIVING? OR GET HIT BY A CAR?
I AM SO FUCKING NOT IN THE MOOD FOR ANYTHING
as i was writing this rant by coming back from ffffffftffffffffffFFFfFFFfFFFFCKING college i went into a bus and there was a woman in front of me with an english text on the back of her shirt saying "she believed she could so she did. she designed a life she loved." WHAT
THIS WAS PUT IN FRONT OF MY FACE AT RANDOM SPONTANEOUSLY
DID GOD JUST GIVE ME A FKIG SIGN OR SOMETHING?? "MY LIFE SUCKS RIGHT NOW BUT I CAN TURN IT INTO THE LIFE I LOVE" IS THAT WHAT A HIGHER SPIRITUAL BEING IS TRYING TO TELL ME RIGHT NOW???
WHAT IS THIS
HOW DO I FEEL RIGJT NOW
I DONT GET IT
I talked to the client how functionality should look like on UI, draw a mockup, designed and made changes to db schema, created REST api, made documentation how to use it, told frontend developer to make changes on frontend application according to the documentation and mockups. Still no one have fucking clue how to do it. Fucking testers can’t write anything, only clicking.
So I sent curl code how the fucking request should look like exactly then resolved bugs they reported as won’t fucking fix because I will not be also making fucking frontend. Probably they even don’t know what curl is. What a fucking fuck.
And that’s what I am mostly doing from Monday till Friday to keep this project going.
It’s cause client are nice guys and we are doing something good, not some fucking ai, blockchain, big data, financial scam everyone is wanking around.
And friends are asking, why I drink.
Pretty busy day at work today.. in the midst of everything, a co worker asked me to sync their branch on GitHub since they don't know how to.
Told them to commit any changes do that there wouldn't be any conflicts.
Their response: "you should already have my latest from 2 days ago"
Two questions that I should have asked:
1) what have you been doing for two days?
2) why am I doing everything else?
I am bored with what I m doing at my office.. I am solving only bugs.. and nobody is ready to assign me good work 😒.. fk man1
I dont get it... I dont understand what my manager expects me to do when I am not really allowed to make design decisions, but there is no design at all! What are we doing here, manufacturing spaghetti? Today I asked my co-worker what our product should actually do exactly when its finished. He said he is not so sure either. And our manager is now on vacation so we cant ask what exactly he wants...
Me: I should divide my project in small parts. It will be a piece of cake.
Also me: (on last day of submission) 76 commits in 34 minutes.
*Face Palm* 🤦♂️1
So it's Valentine's day here in the states.
I don't know what to do for my GiF.
All I did was rm -rf objects around the apartment and she seemed pleased...Am I doing this relationship thing right?6
I suck at unit testing. I really fucking suck at it.
Every time I try to write a unit test, I think to myself, what the fuck am I doing? How does this even work? What am I testing? Why do I need to new up 100 dependencies? how do I test this private behaviour from the boundaries of my object? Can I even substitute a Factory delegate? Does that even work? What if my object needs a dependency to have certain state? How do I mock that?
Does anyone have any good reading material to make me not shit at writting automated tests?7
Doing things on Linux is so fucking hard when you don't know what you are doing. I have spent the past 3-4 hours trying to build httpd from source (good learning experience, eh?), trying to follow the documentation to the letter, and the curveballs keep on coming one after another after another. You need to know this, and to understand that, and install this, and configure that. AAAARGH! I am learning though...8
My new employer is giving me the option to learn whatever I want. I’m doing procurement and Sharepoint and some other things, covering on the help desk, and some graphic design work. I have a bit of free time though and want to try something new!
We have the following teams: networks, development, security, and help desk. What should I ask to do next?
I’m learning SQL and have also been given the opportunity to do some of that work once I am ready.
Note: I know that it’s my preference what I do, I just don’t even know where to begin!3
Sitting around all day getting nothing important done and complaining about not having anything useful to do.
Guess what I am supposed to be doing now?1
So here I am with just 4 nights left at my disposal, in which I have to make a Major project worth 10 credits for my college degree and simultaneously prepare for my oncoming exams... You might think what was I doing all these days then!
Well did I mention I was busy contributing to Open source community (mozilla to be precise) which I enjoyed doing more than I would like to cram things up for my exams and do major project which my teachers expect to be an out of the box idea.
F@#$! Education system1
My Project Lead got me to work overtime, I was doing 150% of what I was supposed to do.
After 4 months of tremendous working and smart planning, I planted a small bug in the software we build, and used that to exploit the Software yesterday morning, and today by 3 PM (Our Usual. Lunch Time), He was fired.
Finally, that donkey is fired and now he must rotten in hell, yeah, he got that stamp on his resume for being fired.
Now I am feeling guilty that I have almost ruined his career (30%), but I am happy, that rascal got what he deserved (70%). Yay!4
I've been told a number of times that I spend too much time in front of my computer "playing games", where I am actually working hard on work projects and personal projects.
[I wonder how they figured that I am "playing games" when they haven't even seen what I am doing but anyways...]
Some people will just never understand how much dedication and effort my job as a web developer requires.8
Anyone else hates the "Getting started" docs as much as I am?
Problem is, most of the code is only useful for doing exactly this - "start a totally useless chat between two windows" for example for Broadcast in Laravel. What is missing is the part where you need to auth with an API in the backend and because it is missing, we see giant security holes in websites that are basically made from 101 tutorials...
what am i going to do today? whatever the fuck the SYSTEM throws at me... or what my manager wants me to waste time on... ah , programmer life when one has a conundrum of doing what you like to do but not end up doing that because there are other mountains to climb with squirrels eating your nuts...1
My last week of 2017 sucks! The function that been assigned to me has been 7 months until i doing it without any priority tasks. The bad for this, is becoming worse for the clients and they really want it until the end of 2017, so happy new year motherfuckers.
Here's the story, the function i am doing requires a heavy calculations, and i am no brainer in math, though my logical skills, hopes me up to made it quickly as possible. However i am full of workloads/to-do for the past 3 months, that i am unable to comply my documents regarding my employment!!
Much worse for this is the coding guidelines. There no fucking guidelines at all, like do what i want just to make it work, but my team lead ironically speaking that never touch that because it's already working. Dude, the server response was the real issue there and i was supposed to handle that function because your fucking json was not formatted well! Shout out to git for giving me a saving grace not to fire me.
Lastly, the leader's attitude. You're so sarcastic as fuck! Of course i won't get mad at you on personal matters, i understand. But on work, the way you communicate was not like my any mentor/prof that i ever met!! I hate my fucking work. Hope my 2018 would do my best, AND I AM GONNA MAKE MY OWN GUIDELINES ACCORDING TO YOUR ASSES!! HAPPY NEW YEAR, GODDAMNIT!!
In my team, I am not allowed to use ANY comments except for the really lengthy classes in the backend.
Thus, the code of the whole project (a complex webapp, consisting of 20-something Django projects and various services) is basically undocumented.
The slogan sounds "good code doesn't need commenting".
Seriously, fuck this and all of the times I scratched my head wondering "what the fuck is this spaghetti about".
Have any of you encountered something like this? Usually people don't want to comment, I would do it gladly but can't even make a small inline about what complex method is exactly doing :P2
"hey, can you help me doing this on the phone?"
"hey, do you know what,'s wrong with my computer "
And so on...
I am no tech support.
First world problems, I know 😑
I don't know what the fuck is happening rn I created repo on gitlab and tried to make changes from terminal it refused. Tried every fucking combination as I thought I must be doing something wrong .
Got fed up made a new account , made a new repo but gitlab doesn't allow me to upload files from there fucking website too.
Now I am getting error 500 from terminal because I can't clone my repo as it says this repo doesn't exist.
Now I can only imagine that there might be some problem with gitlab it's 4 in the morning, I should probably sleep.
3 hours to understand that I needed an if for my code to work like it was supossed.
I need more coffee and sleep...
And just posted this rant as a comment to another rant. I am so fucked up. And the holidays just begun....2
I'm the first person in 4 generations that works in a tech/hands-on area.
Everyone in my family works in media, sales, diamonds, law, business and teachers(in Yiddish it's called Luft-gescheft- air business)
They have no clue what I'm doing and how I got where I am and see it as a waste of time.2
It's 1:22 am, and what am I doing? Rewriting my Smite Team Generator as a standalone Java library. I have plans on completely revamping how the Android front-end for it works as well. I really wish I didn't have the desire to do this right now so I could go to sleep.2
Why is it, I've handled data in JSON format quite a few times, but every time I try to use it again, I completely forget how JSON works
(In the meeting) "Yes everything seems to be progressing forward at an excellent rate, I'm seeing lots of synergy in the team."
Translation: "Where the fuck am I and what the fuck am I doing...?!"
Sometimes when other devs ask me to explain something in the specs I cannot make into smaller words (example: javadoc says throws <error name> when x <= y. I was asked to explain 'what all this psuedocode means'), or their code horrifies me, I ask my mother if she knows what it is doing.... just as a 'wtf am I missing' check.
She still finds it amazing when we text her a gif and asks for help when she 'loses' her icons on her phone, but she will still ask what is wrong with some of these people.1
Awkward moments in an interview where the person was repeatedly saying that , "werr you coding in your old job ?", "Here you will be doing a lot of coding " and shit like that. When he asked about my hobby immediately after , i say i am a blogger. When i was asked what my last blog was it was awkward to mention that " How the word coding is offensive for software developer !"
Couldnt have asked for a better timing..4
CEO: I want the design to be *gibberish*, lemme see it when you're done, ye?
Marketing: Just do it this way, it looks neater. *Deletes 10 lines of code*
Lead Dev: Intern. What the f*#% are you doing? Rewrite that *points to HTML divs*
Me (intern): What am I even doing here? 😂
What in the actual fuck is vs code doing with the language servers? I am idle for minutes, but the language servers are constantly are roasting my cpu harder than linus doing code reviews.
Fucking hell, I can't enjoy the music in the background, with the cooling system crying.3
I'm about to graduate and I have no idea what I'm doing. I tried learning the basics and even went through a lot of extra stuff. I can only say I dabbled in scripting, web scraping and a little bit of software development. However when I compare myself to my peers, I feel so out of place. I can't confidently say I know even the concepts I practiced. I am really interested in the field but I feel like I'm way behind and this is constantly nagging me. Is this normal or is there anything I can do about it?2
A question for all you grey beards and other more knowledgeable devs:
I work for a small grocery retail company. Work primarily as a dev, but also spend time doing I.T./HelpDesk stuff. My wife is a nursing student, and when she graduates in May 2018 she is wanting to move to a different location to work at a specific hospital, which would require me to change jobs. No problem, I'm fine with that.
Here is what I am wondering: I currently make a modest salary (for 23 years old I feel like I'm doing pretty good), but we are expecting our first child in April and I would like to be making more. Would persuing a different job for extra $$$ that I could potentially only be working at for around 8-ish months be a bad idea? Should I just stick where I am at until I actual HAVE to move?
Thanks in advance for any advice :D2
npm XXXXXX -f
seems to be the only way to make it work... sadly :( Even though I have no idea what I am doing.4
Got extremely stuck and I have absolutely no clue about what I am really doing. I think I've messed up the whole codebase with these new changes.5
I’m one month into my first job as a C++ dev for a company with a MASSIVE code base and I still am struggling with having a consistent build environment, sometimes spending almost 3 hours a day troubleshooting because my environment is always inconsistent. I’ve barely gotten my hands into the code nor pushed anything because I’m stack tracing through thousands of compiled dlls through process of elimination to identify a bug in the software.
Is this normal? What am I doing wrong? I’m freaking out that I haven’t shown any productivity to this company.2
I was sitting down at my desk today, pissed due to some more lack of coffee, and wondering about my future.
It came upon me that I absolutely despise what I am currently doing (job wise). There is a part of me that tells me that things are going to be alright, but that is just some nonsense that my mind makes up to rationalise how terrible it actually is here at this company.
I think that perhaps my abhor for my current position is a little more directed to the people and company that I work for, but I am really just fed up.
I have found quite a liking in terms of web-design. The clients and the work is a lot less stressful than what I am doing now - and I actually enjoy what I am doing. It is nice to see something come to fruition.
Perhaps that's the way to go? God decisions are fucking risky.1
Attending classes on English literature at 8am while coding all night. What am I doing at uni again 😶😶3
I'm getting a NFC tag implanted in my hand in Friday by the founder of dangerousthings.com
I'm a little nervous3
Yesterday I tried Rancher on a DigitalOcean droplet.
Rancher itself was easy to startup and use. But I couldn't manage to find the Container Volumes on my NFS Server. Even the NFS Server was up and running.
I really felt like a monkey in front of my PC not understanding what Im doing.
@11.30 pm -->BF: "Comm'on now...what Ya still doing there..aren t Ya comeing??? O.o already..."

BF: "Yeeahp..Ya are handeling it all right already, you need to put it in the practice too. Come now. !" <<<--grinns.
ME: <<--lifting my glasses up to my head slowly: " I am writing...handwriting...the code!! Python!...?"
BF: "Yeah, i know...i saw yar test -B+.
If ya had done the finances calculus program for our maintance..my building checks, our food, your clothes...you would have more practice to put it into use...and you would have got an A probably..." He s freaking smirks and i went

When you gotta sleep rn to wake up for college tomorrow but you've got a competitive programming problem stuck in your mind that just refuse to go away.
Someone sing me a fucking lullaby pls...4
I work mostly as freelance, so I really dislike having to explain how am I doing thing to a client.
Some ask me to explain what is my logic, and when they don't understand(most of the time) I have that 'sigh' moment where you just want to work on a company where you are tasked with something and does not have to educate people about your method of development (at least not much)2
I decided to take this week to write unit tests for some code I already finished. I am new at it and I really want to incorporate as part of work. (Damn deadlines).
I am already seeing the good effects. Bugs I didn't catch before are now showing up.
Now I am wondering what I have been doing all these days calling myself a developer...
have a bash alias for easily connecting to raspberry pi
share same aliases file with raspberry pi for ease of use
ssh to raspberrypi
forget about it and try ssh again
realize what i am doing
from pi@raspberrypi to pi@raspberrypi
i have to choose an instructor for my university final project and i'm gonna choose the teacher who is strict and always gives tasks on which i spend time to think and do researches and learn new things, because i like this kind of pressure and i like being pushed to my limits and to discover what i am capable of doing!2
No ranting here but
Started doing web with POCO in C++. Could not be as pleased as now. Syntax is cool, framework is cool, GNU Makefiles are cool, aclocal isn't, but... Go to hell automake. I am happy, helping a friend and enjoying what I feel as the chilliest programming language is becoming the way I do web.
Well its my cake day on reddit and well i have to celebrate somehow. So here im installing Gentoo into VM to see how it is. Fuck me, What am i doing.
Arch gods save me please.
P.S no im not leaving Arch. Im just trying gentoo.8
Today I discovered trial and error driven development for myself:
Me, reading spec..
Spec: „Do something with an CSR“ (not the exact wording :D)
So instead of just googling C# + CSR and copying the code examples,
I went like:
What means CSR -> Certificate (Something Something)
-> could be this namespace (Something with „Crypto...“ in its name)
-> could be this class (Something with „Certificate“ in its name)
-> take the easiest overload (string is always nice)
-> try filling in the parameters from the spec
-> start debugger and inspect properties
-> repeat if necessary
I don’t know if this is the correct pattern to proceed my project with...
But hey, today it worked and now I also know, what „distinguished“ means
I tend to write with long variable names instead of using too many comments to explain what i am doing in the code. Is it wrong?1
Im curious guys, what's everyone main core OS/Distro at the moment and why?
For me it's chrome OS, taken a little hiatus from programming as it's been dragging my mental state down a bit so I've been focusing on writing my book and what programming I am doing is just me learning ground up java script development. So all I really need are my google docs services and a good code editor.6
Me doing a complete design overhaul of my website and deciding not to make the background the horrid grey colour that I'd used since I taught myself.
Also Material UI and learning that I don't need everything to have all the whistles and bells when it goes out for use.
A.K.A my current CSS stylesheet & PHP is what I am hyped for!!
(Mainly because it looks good, and my homemade transaction processor works and has a cool UI.)
Yay, realisation, because I am looking forward to releasing it soon!!!
I haven't had to work with much legacy code other than mine. I always wonder what I was doing every time I have to fix something in an old project. At least it verifies I am learning and improving my programming skills.

Non-techy friend (n): you know what cherry pick is?
N: you dont know that?
Me: well, i love cherries...
N: i am disappointed of you.
Me: what the f...ing hell is that?
N: you know the git thingy you are always doing...
Me: i have never heard of that...
N: well use it every time before and after you commit.
Me : (not believing, but kinda believing) ok.
A few days later...
Messed up 3 hrs of work
What really is cherry pick guys?10
After work party till 2 am I'm trying to work. I bet zombies would do better job then what I'm doing. Sorry No offence zombies !!
I need to run a cloud Linux vm. My need is limited to running tomcat and about 10 web services- that's it. What I would like is an easy to use Linux flavor with a nice UI.
I need to know what cloud service and what flavor of Linux. And please don't get snotty with me because I have run massive applications on Solaris, AIX and HPUX - I am over doing things in a shell.2
imagine a big network with mikrotik routers around. each user must login to the hotspot to access the internet (login page is always the same ip)
i am connected to one of those routers using winbox but i dont see any of those user/pass in the hotspot section of this router. and this router is the only router winbox has detected.
so... what am i doing wrong? where are the use/pass stored if they are not in this router?1
as a senior dev, what tasks do you expect from a fresher or junior? how much should he/she already know and how much are you willing to tell them? what would be the tasks that wold be handled by you only and what would be the stuff you think they should be doing?

I'm doing my last days at my current job this week. I'm beginning a new job next week and am quite affected by impostor syndrome. What happens when they find out how bad I am at programming?3
Writing my master thesis at my company, theoretical computer science, doing fancy shit with scheduling rules. but am just a "working student".
Realized, that all my project member, also other colleagues, standing right behind me at a Whiteboard, discussing that part of the project I am the expert of, as this exactly is my topic.
They were asking very new team member about my topic, but they know nothing, just guessing how this could be.
Nobody did even think about asking me.
So I continued working on what they thought "nobody has knowledge about at all".
Not a rant, just an advice :
Never do freelancing with job. It sucks a lot🙃😖
Always remember that 'less is more'.1
So I've wanted to do / am doing front end for what seems like a while now. My bff does back end and ask me for insight a fair amount and my insight helps or either puts him on the right track. why is it I can more easily understand back end opposed to frontend? Also its taken me far to long to learn js and yet almost completely understand SQL to which I have never written.1
Am I crazy?
I'm trying to set up IoT, but I don't want to rely on pre-made scripts or github for all the answers. I'm trying to do it in C, and I'm trying to do as much of the actual programming on my own.
Every time I tell someone what I'm doing they tell me I should just download a python script that does it all for me.
I don't want the "easy way."
I'm trying to take agency in this project; I want to be proud of it.1
You know what annoys me...compnies dropping of the face of the earth. Like I take to the recruiter over the email. We set up a phone screen with HR and then with the Dev team, we talk about on site interview, WE DISCUSS THE TIME AND THEN NOTHING. Weeks go by and no emails or replies. Like what am I doing wrong here. This happened for the third time!2
TL;DR I am not sure how to store a whole bunch of images for my SMS bot
Hi Everybody. I'm doing a side project where I am setting up a SMS bot to send images to certain phone numbers weekly. I am using twilio for the SMS bot and I think it's going to be written in python. I want the program to pick a random image from storage and then send that one. However I am not sure what way to store the images (REST API, SQL DB, firebase, etc.) I have worked with REST APIs before but I have almost no experience with SQL databases and firebase. Has anyone done anything like this? Is there a better way I could be doing this? Please lmk if you guys would like anymore info. Thank you!5
What are good book/tools/approaches/practices in order to optimize and/or test PHP7 code?
I am doing some small research on that so any idea would be useful.8
Come up with a cool idea and the concepts I want to learn by making the idea. Download IDE/editor if I don't have it. Open that bitch up. Crack a beer and my knuckles. Yep, nothing can stop me now. No distrac- damn my shoes are shiny. What was I doing again?
*as I am laying down to sleep* oh no. I forgot to code that cool thing AGAIN.
Say what you want about jquery but it always does EXACTLY what I expect it to do. I might write 4x the amount of code to make something reactive but I am not spending 2 hours trying to figure out why the reactive nature of my JS library isnt doing what i expect and another 2 ours building a workaround for it.4
U see me with massive headphones on and i am not making any eye contact. That means something guess what it is ;) But u start talking anyway hoping me to stop whatever i am doing and get on to your thing. Life sucks.
what I am doing is reading mathematics as people say developer needs good concept of mathematics
poor me 😂😂😂😂3
what does devrant think of doing a weekend coding session with lil sleep because I am thinking od doing it next weekend4
I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I am at a loss. I have applied to several Front-End jobs, both local, and remote. I have personal projects on my portfolio, and I offer to do "homework," that's been assigned while applying for a job. I am currently learning Python, but I don't have a project up with that.
My old budget gaming build (turned server) is screaming in agony right now.
Well, it's more like the AIO Water cooler is running on max and it constantly makes a clicky sound.
But still. Torturing servers by submitting a rendering job is fun.
Wait what am I doing
I am working with Apache Spark on Scala for my undergrad research. It got me thinking: what is Scala used for beside doing stuff with Spark?
Not sure whether it's just me but most posts talking about Scala seem to always mention Spark.
What am I doing today? Waiting.
"Build Status: Running for 18.3 minutes."
I've done this three times so far today.1
What would you do if you had a safe way to slack whole day in job?
I am working in a giant company, it is easy to camouflage here. I am doing whenever a job is given but those tasks are not developing me. So I execute those tasks slowly. Sometjmes, a good quality tasks are given , I execute them really fine but those are scarce.
I used to study a lot of things during the day, like cpp, python, IoT but i feel like burnt out, just waiting for the end of the day. How can I break out of this situation. I know, for a better job, I must be a better sw engineer but I am wasting my free time(during my work hours) recently and my feeling of guilt is increasing.
How do you pick up yourselves in such mkments?16
Okay, so I am learning Python and I have to say it's a very interesting language but I have some questions about how the language is built under the hood as the documentation I can find by Guido doesn't give away all the secrets.
So for the question I am referencing this documentation:
So, what does __new__ actually look like inside? Is there a way to see how python itself implements __new__?
I know that the mechanism for C++ malloc and new are well known definitions within that space, but I am having issues understanding exactly what the default __new__ is doing on the machine level.
The documentation I found is great for explaining how to use and override __new__ but it doesn't show what python does it once you hand off operations back to the system.
Any help is greatly appreciated!4
When you spend 3 or 4 hours working on a large PBI on Friday and you go into work early AF (6:30am) on Monday so you can finish before the end of the sprint on Tuesday, but they tell you in the morning stand up that the PBI will be abandoned.
I am really not sure about this, so I wanted to ask, do you guys post online on Medium or Dev.to and how was your experience with your first post? I wanna start doing it, but I've got no clue what to write about. Any suggestions?15
The easiest way for me to get unstuck when writing a program is usually to talk to someone in the business about my problem. If I can explain what I am doing to someone else it helps me better understand where I might be going wrong. It especially helps if I am speaking to someone who is not technical because I have to explain everything without glazing over the general coding stuff.
I am sure it bores the hell out of them though.1
Not that i am just in this for the money but how do i start making money from what i know? I'm sick of my car wash job, they hired me because i wanted to help them get there website to a better standard but that's not what they'ed had me doing. Now i just work at this dumb car wash.
Please, how do i sustain a income from this thing that i really love to do?1
Hi fellow DevRanters! I've been studying software engineering for a while now and, while I love programming, I'm starting to think that all I'll be doing as a software engineer now a days is pulling data from a database, sticking it in a nice gui with some buttons and moving on to the next, similar, project. At the same time I am loving linux more and more, I love working with bash and other unix-like tools and I am interested in systems languages like C and Rust. It is for these reasons that I am playing with the idea of switching to Systems and network engineering. What are your thoughts on this? Is Systems and network engineering a field in which I get to program a lot? Will there be more variation in it? Is my view of software engineering completely off? Please share your thoughts and opinions!
TLDR: releasing mental pressure
How are you doing it guys, i was trying to find project where i could find out how it works, recently followed flask tutorial for blog, and checked out chat with flask-socketIO, but have overwhelming feeling like everything was already developed and Am so much behind ( like learning web in 2018 - what im doing here ) + like its not enough, all are spamming about how AI will take work also from coders
I don't see anyone linking this so I am doing it!
ad block can be flanked, it is nothing strange, but some poeple have made a very good analysis on this.
pi-hole should still work, for what I can tell
I can"t sleep so I am scrolling through devrant. In other news, Facebook keeps updating their app, but I have absolutely no idea what they are doing and why every update is around 50MB of nothing.2
Is BSc degree enough to to get a decent job in tech with enough opportunity to grow?
I am talking about software engineering and business & it.
What about going for certification instead of doing masters?3
Education is the key from a cell but its the skill that gets you out of the prison...am doing computer science 2nd year but i can't tell you what i have learned.. All i know is that i can show you and teach you how programs work, produce something that shows how i think... Its not about the knowledge but intelligence behind the knowledge
Ok so I got namespace N.
And namespaces N\a and N\b.
I would like N\a\foo() to call N\b\bar().
But no matter what I do it says \N\b\bar() does not exist. What am I doing wrong??
I've tried including, using, requiring but nothing.8
Am really confused between app development and web development. Where should I proceed guys?
Am CS student right now. Mostly learn C# (WPF, xamarin) in mean time.
But recently am getting love on Angular 4. For that I learn typescript (I know HTML and CSS basics btw) and willing to start learning it in upcoming vacations.
But thoughts coming in my mind is am doing good to get into web development? If yes what should I do with the knowledge of C# then? 😣😣. Or should I stick with app development and get dipper knowledge in it?
Really confusing stuff man. Am really need some good assistance on this topic!1
I am doing an internship under a professor and he wants me to build a system which manages login/signup and licensing (of the products) system and license check. And for that he wants me to create REST API! I am just starting with backend development so I don't know much but from what i know it seems bad idea to implement this via rest api.
So can you guys tell me if rest api way is good or not? And if not how to implement these functionalities?6
Always valued my every minute but seems I have given up the principle for a cron job which I have to wait for every minute to run so I can see what I am doing on the log file.
Coding made me who I am now. I have a much more organized mind and critical though. I have some new skills that are really useful when it comes to job hunting. I'm proud to do what I do, even if it's not that much. I love learning, coding just fits my style.
I am grateful that I started doing it, there's one big downside to coding though. We all know what it is: USERS!
Going back to drinking some coffee. Oh yea, that's how coding changed my life ;)
I'm currently doing my college internship at a company where the working hours are from 8 am till 5 pm. I was suprised by the hours because it feels so long. I was wondering what hour do you guys work and does every company use these hours? I live in Belgium. I'm not sure how it is in other countries. Thanks!6
When my code works without any hich I feel like I can conquer the world.. But when it doesn't work after trying for so long, I feel like What am I doing with my life.
New crm system is a gem. Teaching people to use it is just so easy. Fixing and finding all the problems though... glad for the automations being done by colleuge 👍
Why does maven for eclipse not do what I want? Am I just doing it wrong, or is it too complicated to get an executable jar with all dependency plugins packaged, where no alert like "main class not found" will pop up at execution?!?
Hi, as a developer turned tester I was wondering if anyone here would hear a talk about what on earth testers actually do in a project and how they contribute to the product? I mean besides writing automation scripts or checking if all the requirements are met (the latter is really the most boring part of testing).
I am thinking of doing a talk on this but don't know if Devs might be interested and which conferences I should target.2
Can anyone recommend me a good book or course to start learning spring framework 4??
Am tired of struggling with it, I have to
Work with the thing and I barely know what am doing most of time.
I managed to resolve a couple
Of spring security issues we had at
Work but that was through sheer dogged googling around, I want to spend some
Time learning it from Bottoms up...
I know its quite vast but what am going for is trying to learn the basics and a few of the most commonly used bits of the advanced portions then expanding my knowledge.
So any suggestions?
I hear spring in action 4 by craig wells
is nice but some reviews criticises it about not being appropriate for newbies like me.
So damn tired of silently screaming
"what the F*** is all this shit?!?" when am given spring related stuff to work on 😔5
I witness a lot of stupidity (programming related) in college, and my mind is constantly toggling between the following states:
* arguing with stupid people makes me look stupid too, so I should just ignore
* maybe I should educate them
* I am helpless - they won't listen to me
* what sins did I commit in my life that I have to see this
* what in the actual flying fuck are these idiots doing
* I AM STRESSED AND I NEED TO RELEASE IT1
Am I doing something wrong or am I the only one not able to install anything on Pop! OS?
Googling doesn't find me this issue what so ever.
It always tells me about some dependencies and that it won't install them.
And then i have to do --reinstall, which either does it's job or tells me shit can't be downloaded.
Wtf is this shit? I love pop os but for gods sake let me install libsdl or wine or anything else!5
I purchased a preamp / compressor / de-esser / spectral enhancer / expander/gate to reduce noise from my mic. Its 1 item, it has a bunch of things you can touch and turn.
Now i just gotta figure out how to use it properly... xD2
I am interested in Machine learning and don't know how to proceed. there are tons of courses on udemy, Coursera, udacity etc..
I am doing Coursera machine learning by Andrew Ng and didn't know what to do next. Suggestions will be helpful.
Btw I am doing Machine learning to implement it in Android.
Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?
I published a pretty small app about a year ago that was just a small financial widget for your home screen. Recently I added more in app functionality and graphs but left the widget part unchanged.
For some reason I am now getting even less installs and my active user count has dropped. Any idea why people who used it in the widget only days would suddenly leave?

So, here I am, trying to get started with fucking heroku and failing miserably again and again. I deploy my app, I fetch with git, I try to push, and guess what: IMPOSSIBLE TO FETCH. WHY!?
Simple, I've already deployed and fetched may app, but I wasn't thinking, just doing a said...
Feel so stupid when type like a monkey... Now I know the only I had to do was learn heroku commands. And it took me only three hours to notice...
Only Me or Everyone!!!
I am coding everyday, more appropriate to say in all weekdays.
When my colleague ask me, hey dude what you are working on?
I could explain What I am doing and How I am doing, but I fail to explain Why I am doing it.4
I am doing a lot more freelancing recently, what are your tips on making websites faster. I tend to focus on really small details which slow me down. What are your tips and tricks3
My last days at work before changing job. I am an angular expert, and I have contributed to build the first angular enterprise project for my business; during my last 20 days you know what I am doing? Maintenance on a pretty old GWT project that nobody wants to care...1
21 hours, i worked most with sane concentration.
I remember when i was fresh in programing, felt for the first time that i have challenge to solve and it was a chain reaction i kept doing tasks 1 by 1 and volla 21 hours are passed.
I came office at 10 am and left 7 am other day.
After Finnish my work i felt so relive like i have concurred the world lol.
It was a feeling like i have all the time in the world and this is what i am passionate about so all i have to dive in this field.
During this session when i gained the momentum of work i could see that the production become double triple as long as you get sync with your brain. Felt like you are in some other time space where you spend more time but in reality its less same as we dream.
Normally take a break. Think for a moment what am I trying to do and HOW am I doing it. That way i unstuck myself and find even a better way to do whatever i was doing.
Well, I hinted what I am doing the site I am building. I am proud on how it is coming!
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 just want to test my PHP code using phpunit on GitLab, what am I doing wrong?
# Install & enable Xdebug for code coverage reports
- pecl install xdebug
- docker-php-ext-enable xdebug
# Run our tests
# If Xdebug was installed you can generate a coverage report and see code coverage metrics.
- phpunit Test.php4
Started my new job this week. I'm a backend developer and need to learn React. What are the best resources to learn? I have managed to install everything and create an example app but I feel like I need some tutoring as I have no idea what I am doing. I'm a JS noob as well so that makes it even more difficult. Do you guys have any recommendations? The official docs for React is kinda lacking imo.
Hi... I am here again. Long time without phone... am learning java but a cousin want a register, and I am doing on excel with vba. What you say?
Hello Everyone, As of now one of my friends wants to create awareness for their services in paid campaigns with regional wise. I am suggesting him to ask our query to here but some of the reason they can't be registered. So I have put some query on behalf of his. He wants to promote this service https://digiorbite.com/services/... So what they actually do go with the paid campaign or doing proper optimization according to google guidelines?
I'm sure we all have those moments when we feel spacey, but there is fine line between thinking deeply and being under a strong hypnotic trance! I honestly believe there might be something wrong with me because usually when I start blanking out, it's like my mind falls into another universe that is far away from earth! I can not ( see / hear ) what is going on around me!!! I sometimes even forget where I'm at and what I'm doing... until someone tries to get my attention! NOW WAIT A MINUTE! HOLD UP!!! BEFORE YOU ASSUME ANYTHING, NO I DO NOT SMOKE OR DRINK. AND I DON'T DO DRUGS EITHER!!! I AM A CLEAN HEALTHY PERSON... I just can't seem to understand why I am so mentally outside of the box instead of inside...1
