I'd love to finish a few projects I'm currently working on:
- An add-on which gives a middle finger to websites which use services/products ran by companies which are known to be integrated within the biggest mass surveillance system ever created (US powered). Not because just fuck those websites but because I think (@PonySlaystation came up with this idea) that its only fair that people get to know which websites 'sell them out'. Oh and "but not everyone cares about that" - you don't HAVE to install the addon.
(will be open sourced)
- Notes service with a fun thing.
- PHP based server/website/whateverthefuckyouwant monitoring system which is pretty much module based and works with json files as configuration. (kinda works but still loads of bugs to solve and gotta improve the module system a lot).
(will be open sourced)
- PHP based pihole alternative which suits my needs (will be open sourced)
- Forgot one 😅19
1. Try to stay sane in startup chaos
2. Use more vacation days
3. Separate work and free time a bit more
4. Get out into nature more
5. Hire 50+ good developers & get company to 15M active end users while doing all of the above5
Plans for 2019
- make my app good enough for prod usage
- find someone to help me with ui
- find someone to help me with marketing
- register my own company
- end my twenties
- maybe quit my 9/5 job by the end of the year
it's gonna be a fun year :)2
for 2019 I want to be the very best dev
that no one ever was
to code them all will be my test
debugging is my cause
I will travel across the net
searching wide on tor
each singleton to understand
the power of the code
devmons its you and me
you know its our destiny
you're my best friend
and our firewall will stand
- hire a new Dev.
- not burnout this year
- work less, deliver more
- start a open source side project and make it production ready7
Spend 14 hours a week studying more with my free time.
Things to be studied:
-other relevant maths
Other things I want to improve:
-confidence at work
-reaching out to teams with questions
-enjoying the little things
-consistency (with everything above)
Last big thing would be being more conscious with what type of data/platforms I am digesting everyday. Just like a good diet I want to get in the habit of consuming “good” useful content that’s thought provoking or knowable rather than fast food social media carbs
Wish everyone a productive New Year!6
Getting paid for doing nothing. Working only on my personal projects. Making a useless JS Framework that every company uses. Learning how to exit vim.
Okay, the last one may be kind of impossible.4

4. Start waking up before 9 o clock
5. Help maintain a open-source library.
6. Make a open-source library.4
So haven't been on devRant in awhile but it's a new year and I definitely have some new goals. For starters, I'm building my first LFS system (on phase 2 of my toolchain atm), which I thought would be way over my head. Apparently, all these arch experiences have paid off xD I've always wanted to truly understand what went on under the hood of linux and maybe after going through this over and over I'll at least understand a little more.3
Learn enough docker to convince my coworker that it is not the solution to EVERY problem, especially not to our problem8
Well, I got 2 mega arduino kits and a raspberry pi over xmas (and no experience with either), plus unemployment, so my goals are learning the hardware side of things this year.
Also, hi devRant.2
- Learning a lot of new shit because I don't want to get stuck. Remember, if you're the smartest person in a room/group, you're in the wrong group.
- Create a server and a client for a variation of MultiCube with up to 10 clients, with communication being done via UDP. Yes, I spend way too much time on my cubes.5
Finally removing all mysqli references and make the pdo statements, so we can finally switch to PHP 7.25
- build my two pixie radios
- get my ham and Morse code licences
- finish writing my rf replay attack program
- build a custom version of raspbian os for FRC
- win all the games (right @ellont?)
There are more.. I can't remember them.. I should really wake up before trying to make lists5
NOT saving the world in 2019. I already did that in 2012 when the Maya calendar ended and wasn't being thanked - on the contrary, people said "haha look, nothing happened".2
My dev goal is to actually finish something this year, last year I started a load of projects but left them unfinished3
-Publish a paper
-Get into one or more of the many camps I applied to
-Get a social life
-Start in open source
-Get to at least USACO Gold
-Improve my bots for various social media
-Stop using non-open source services as much as possible
-Contribute to devRant
-Do more exercise
-Get a hobby
-Start and actually finish a side project
-Get a job
-Start at least 2 more research projects and hopefully get quite a bit towards publishing a paper in each.16
Everybody knows even when you set a nice project to finish in 2019 the project wont be done even at end of 2030 because you started new project1
Never gave much consideration to new year's resolutions, but here we go:
- Make my life less shitty
- Find a way out of my depression
- Get back to my old rythm
- Be in control of my own mind and my body again5
1. Find a decent, entry level job at a company for full time
2. Graduate from my two year tech school with my degree
3. Apply/start at a university for my Bachelor's degree.
4. Start actually building my database application project. Its been on the back burner for over a year.
5. Try not to be so doubtful or unsure of dev skills. Try being less anxious to ask for advice or explanations, and dont let lack of knowledge discourage or embarrass me from growing my skills.1
It's not possible.
Let's start by mastering reactjs.
HAHAHA IM KILLING MYSELF16
Continue with my ALL-OUT year of JUST DO IT. Trying to see what happens when I go YOLO for a year.
It started well about 4 months ago, but I slowed down a bit. I just want to pick up the pace again and JUST DO EEET. See where it leads.
Been working on a lot of side projects. I want to finish a few. One is already pretty much finished.
Then, towards the end of the next year, I think I'll start looking for a dev job.2
• Learn new things!
• Continue my programming projects (mostly C#), and eventually publish them!
• Create more programming side-projects!
• Create more music, of various genres, and finish unfinished tracks! (I love music 💙)
• Buy a violin, or another instrument! (I already play harpsichord and piano, and I love them both)
• Buy a new PC setup! (maybe?)
• Get a driver's license!
• Create more music sheets!
• Create more custom maps, on rhythm games! (like osu! or Cytus / Cytunity)
• Make new friends, and meet with my older ones more!
• Go to places, new and old!
• Open myself more to others! (I'm kinda shy)
• Do my university's exams, properly!
• Do my conservatory's exams, also properly!
• Try drawing!
• Try all sorts of new things!
• Get a cat into the family! (I love cats, but I never got one because I don't know how to raise them, yet)
• Be more confident about myself!
And... yeah, I guess that's it :D
What about you?
Have a happy 2019, everyone! 💙2
My goal for 2019 is to write an efficient neural network library with streams and make it very very very customizable. I'll write in C#, cause fuck python script kids. My idea is to make a cool platform for new ideas8
# work on an open source project
# build an awesome pwa
# less frontend, more backend
# learn GoLang
# find or build more alternatives to Google services, Facebook etc.2
My goals are:
1. Start my new job in Feb.
2. Overcome the challenges I will face in the new environment.
3. Learn, learn, learn
4. Don’t forget to rest.1
I want to fully understand the use of JS. I know the fundamentals like creating for loops and making objects (which I finally understood last week!). Now, I want to make small-large scale projects.
I finally understand that I have to make HTML semantically and have a specific structure and let the css design the page the way I want it. Still a little iffy on positioning, but I am starting to understand it. I am going to starting cloning existing sites and make sure to practice my web development skill.4
Same as the year before.
Trying hard to achieve good grades in school. Nothing special. The usual shit, as you can see...
Thanks for taking your time and read my unnecessary post anyways ;)
Start developing one of the two games that I have been designing in my head for the last year or so.1
I need to convert lots and lots of lengthy hard-coded entities into backend objects, as I'm tired of pushing new commits every time something superficial needs to change.
Also, I need to figure out continuous integration. The guy who was going to help with that just left the company, and I was using his eventual forthcoming help as an excuse not to take responsibility for learning about it myself.
I need to learn golang and start converting some code to it, to see if the performance compares to the perl that's currently in place. Perl is brilliant, but aside from me, only old people know it, at my office. That definitely creates a longterm supportability issue.2
My goal for 2019 is to finally get into game development and release my first game on itch.io!
Also I want to finish a few side-projects, as always...1
I want to use the DevRant community for a Unit test.
Inspired by Memento, I will make a tattoo ... but ... I want it encrypted. I know nothing about encryption.
I want to make some encrypted messages and I want you guys to decrypt them.
If I'm gonna put something on my wrist for life, it should be secure12
~learn react enough to make a full-stack web app
~get good enough at data structures and algorithms to pass a fucking coding skills test
In 2019 I want to get better at PHP & React & stop being afraid to try & fail! I do a lot of front end work, backend still baffles me a lot. Time to get uncomfortable! 👩🏼💻🤓3
Finish a personal project.
Any personal project. I'm not picky. The last time I completed a project that wasn't for my job was like five (well, now six) years ago.
Goals for 2019
- Land an internship at either of the companies I'm in the final stages of interview for.
- Nail my exams.
- Publish an application to the app store.
- Buy an RTX 2080ti.
- Start a blog.
(Dev-ish goals I guess)
Wish you devRant family a very happy new year, my new year resolution for the year finally start working on my side project which I have been rolling off for the last 2 years, this is the year I finally start and finish it off.
Try to finish some of the projects I've started in 2018. Right now I have a todo list text file, along with multiple written lists (the written ones are more focused on a single project normally).
-Finish the startpage I've been doing off and on for at least a month now. I ended up making a lot of it command based (just need to write the scripts for the commands..). I had a little config menu but I just got tired of it and the text box is autofocus anyways, so I figured I'd make it command focused.
-Nice little root safety script as I call it. I've made very stupid mistakes as root before. I once made a typo and ran "chmod --recursive 644 /" while half asleep. I believe I was trying to run that on the current directory I was in, but as you know, the . and / are right next to each other. Basically the script would see what you're doing and echo "you're about to do x, are you sure that's what you want to do?". Something I know I could knock out in a day, but I've been putting it off for at least a year now.
-Compiling notification. I saw something similar once a few years ago, and it was so fucking cool. I remember it being a Mac, and it had a notification that would basically tell you how many files and shit you had left to compile if you were building something. Kinda want to build something for polybar.
-FUCKING RUBBER DUCK DEBUGGING TO THE EXTREME! This one was inspired by a comment someone made once months ago. Might have been here, or reddit, or in real life, not sure. Basically a big ass fucking rubber duck with LEDs in it that will like glow red if your code wouldn't compile (I think Visual Studio has like an automatic error detecting thing in there?? Maybe something similar if I can figure that out). Honestly not sure how the fuck I'd do this one, but I love the idea and I really want to fucking do it
There's more shit. These are just the main ones I want to attempt sometime in the near future.
I want to get at least a skeleton made for this game I want to create. I've been putting off starting it for a whole year now.
Start or participate in my first open source project. All the project's I've made are for sport associations I'm a member of and are purposely closed source. That needs some change.
-or- publish a project which I've been working on for quite a while now which is intended to make some money besides my current full time job.1
My target of this year is to get my coding skill to be able to work in the industry and mybe to start to build my game
So here are my goals for 2019 in no particular order:
-contribute to open source
-switching from intellij to vscode
-finish side projects
-live a healthier lifestyle (less meat, quality food)
-do some hacking challenges
-learn proper linux system administration5
Give me a second to get my todo list.
- get a office/server room built
- setup a home kubernetes cluster
- create an open-source ActivityPub whatsapp clone
- unify existing ActivityPub implementations where an account on one can be used on others
- finish dockerssh
- create an irc bridge for signal messenger.
- find a way to fully provision linux workstations fully unattended2
1. Use all my vacation days
2. Learn something that has nothing to do with computers (seriously I bore myself sometimes in conversation)
3. Drink more rum and learn about it at the same time
4. Make time for friends and family
5. No massive outages!
Mostly I want to step out of work and be more sociable1
* Don't abandon projects
* Read a bit every day
At least one chaper of a normal
book and one volume of manga
that's written I a language I still have
* Learn to write better code, better software architecture
* Fly to japan
* Get a driver license
* Rise again in Osu!
* Tell everyone I use Arch Linux
* Get a job or start freelancing
* watch the animes I always wanted to watch
* Find more awesome musicians and genres to listen to
* Build a desktop pc
Maybe I'll comment some more if I can think of some
New year resolution: resume a personal project I put aside for the last 5 years, and keep at it for a while.
5/6 years ago I was pissed that no mobile game uses touch interface to detect "spells" being drawn on the screen and decided to have a go at it. I remember a game of the 90s doing that with the mouse, which was super cool at the time.
I had a working (but ugly) game, but the last 20% to publish the game was more than my motivation allowed at the time and I let it rot.
Let's see if I can get it done this time.3
To become reasonably proficient in AWS.
It's the one relevant area I feel like I'm being left behind in at the moment. Every other job listing I've seen has it as a requirement or a nice to have, so it'd be a good box to tick.
Plans for 2019 are to release two products.
1. A text-based strategy game engine that will act as the core of two or more progressive web applications, using Node.js/Express, EJS, and SCSS. It will be proprietary, subscription-based, and playable 24/7 online or offline as a web site or mobile app with nightly/weekly/monthly events and items (think KoL, on steroids, with butter on top.)
I am currently undecided whether to go with MongoDB, MySQL or PostgreSQL, so any feedback - without derailing the other choices, and understanding that it needs to be minimal at first with the ability to expand to millions of users - would be appreciated.
2. I'm sculpting collectors figurines of guinea pigs, molding, casting and then selling a limited set that are hand-painted by me with a certificate of authenticity, as well as marketing blank versions of each with a choice of three colors (including white, and either red or black for eyes - a total of five) for people to either paint by themselves, family members, or friends.
This will also have a website that allows you to choose the breed and colors (changing the picture according to your choices), as well as allowing people to use it as a social media outlet - as if their own guinea pigs had profiles instead of humans. It's also planned to support rescues worldwide and educate folks about properly caring for cavies.5
1. Get that senior-appropriate raise
2. Build a real ML project
3. Learn web assembly and get to the next level in web dev
Actually finish something dev-related outside of my classes. I've picked up a lot of unrelated project ideas and every time I find a new one, it gets pushed on top of the stack instead of at the end of the queue.1
Create a p2p version of Google Maps / OpenStreetMap that uses people's browsers to store the map tiles of "their region".
Started already by building a proof-of-concept called p2p-fetch (uses GunDB under the hood) and mixing it with the awesome Leaflet library.
I'll let "procrastination" behind me, indeed I shouldn't be doing this rand :/, I back to work, love u, happy new year.
Not sure if it still counts as a 'dev' goal but for 2o19 I'd like to finally stop being a 'ooh, this is a mess, I can fix this..just one more thing and I'm done for today' person. Even my bosses tell me to go home already, so I hope this year I will be able to do just that: turn my head off and go home, do other things in life I also love.2
Rewrite my entire side-project from scratch using Kotlin and AndroidX. While doing so I want to learn about state of the art encryption and key derivation functions (especially Argon2).
Oh yeah, and finish my PhD...
Become profitable without losing my soul.
Someone help me come up with a revenue stream that's not LOOT BOXES! 😂3
Hopefully get out to the public the two projects I have been working on currently. A local focused startup help website and a local focused fillable forms platform.
And hopefully get my first large scale software project kickstarted - A retail management system on a full Feedback Driven Development approach perhaps with the ability to integrate AI and ML later on.
1. Extend my infosec knowledge further and try getting more work in that area (and less as a dev).
2. Specialize more, dabble less.
3. Learn more !dev skills (military/political history mostly)
Pick up and learn new tech like SignalR and Vue and many more while also focusing on design patterns and software architecture.
Get myself another promotion so I can afford more shit.
Learn rock climbing, get into boxing, and do a first aid course.
Yeah, I'm gonna be busy as hell this year.
1. No sugary snacks (ugh, gonna be brutal).
2. Find a Node project I can become a regular contributor to (because I haven't had an excuse to really learn Node yet).
3. Learn to sit back and stop worrying about whatever the big new thing is in the industry. Be content to read up on it and see how it plays out.
That third one can fit my laid back personality anyway, but it's so hard not to get caught up in worry when things like Node, Blockchain, and AI become such big crazes -- and then the hype dies down.
Of course, I do still want to learn and use Node, but anxiety about being left behind isn't a factor anymore. So that's a plus.
I believe that in 2018 I have learned a lot but haven't used that knowledge to the maximum. So my 2019's main goal is to use things that I've learned or currently going to learn. Along with that I want to see people grow together, so mentoring people is another goal that I have in my mind. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or idea regarding this, that would be very much helpful.
Very Happy New Year to all.
My dev goals:
Finish my current project
Write a small App in about a month
Start a project with my friend
Start Game Developement
Also non dev related:
Overcome some of my social fears so I can live and style myself the way I want
In 2019, I wish to contribute to more open source projects, pick up C++ and create more projects of my own which hopefully leads to a successful startup.
Target #1 - Aim to further develop my university security project (A python based vulnerability scanner), and move this over to GitHub.
Target #2 - Aim for reaching ten contributions on open source projects and start building up my developer profile pre-graduation in September!
Actually get out of my shit job, and move into IT.
Also fix my left constantly dislocating shoulder before I lose it.
And the obvious, learn more ...1
- Stop procrastinate;
- Start a open-source project;
- Go deep in math and logic;
- Perfect my English;
- Learn some soft skills;
- Get a hobby outside dev;
- Get some exercises;
It's all I can think of now, but I have so much more goals for this year that I will be very busy, and in the end of the day it will all come together.2
- finish a year of code
- walk down my list of tech to learn
- get good at DevOps
Also want to learn proper TDD. This lack of discipline with tests is going to kill me (and my code) eventually
Goal for 2019
- finish project I started in Q4 2018 and launch website with it
- maybe find some non invasive way to monetize this and earn some money
If I got time and power left :
- learn more autodesk fusion,
- design robotic arm using above tool
- print it in 3d
- program it with ROS arduino/rpi
- put it on some wheels
- make it driving around my flat
- make it pick up stuff for me
To not get fired. I'm a student at the best high school in my country, so it's really unusual that I work besides school. I want to prove that it's not only possible but beneficial. I already learned a lot, but if I won't get fired, I'll be close to senior level by the time I start working full-time, which will help a lot with university.1
I’ve taken some time to set aside some resolutions for the new year in the form of an evolving page on my blog. First time I’ve actually set any resolutions. I probably won’t reach a majority of them but it was a good exercise in setting them up.
My dev goal for the new year will be teaching others, and I could use some help!
For quite some time I have been thinking about setting up some kind of community project in my area teaching people who are having a hard time finding a job in their field how to program, specifically web development, in order to advance their job prospects. There is a lot of demand here in Holland and as we all know it doesn't take much more than dedication, disambiguation skills and an almost fanatical fondness for solving puzzles to lead a very happy life as a developer. I'm hoping 2019 will be the year.
What complete courses can you recommend to teach someone how to code, that are fun/inspiring enough to keep someone motivated (and able to go to school and/or make a living in the meantime) until they can use their built up skills and portfolio to get a first job (perhaps 1-2 years)?
I plan on tutoring once or twice a week for a few hours and being available for chat the rest of the week when not working. I have enough experience (and curiosity) to help with any assignment but I do not have that much spare time, which is why I need this resource to be as good as possible, and to need as little extra explanation as possible.
My benchmark is the excellent freecodecamp, but I'm wondering if anything else is available. Bonus points for anything in Dutch, or anything that stands out by explaining things in the clearest way possible, and with great assignments of course.
Also I'd be very interested in any stories about similar (not-for-profit) initiatives, especially from a learner's point of view.
Goals for 2019:
Finally get my CS degree.
Find a job.
Complete at least one of my side projects.
Travel with my gf at least once.
Start a master degree in CS if job allows me.
Get a little closer with my family and friends.
Goals for 2019:
-Try not to get fired for writing trash code
-Get a new job (maybe :/)
-Work on my own project that hopefully takes off
2019 Dev Resolutions
- Learn the rest of the languages I want to use
- make a game
- make money off something I program
- contribute to a project
- learn and use git
- get a good schedule for programming
- use a few languages in one project
- be better than I am now
- not be so hard on myself
- publish software/website/game
finishing existing projects, resurrecting abandoned projects with dev friends from uni (where we had actual customers calling us and saying they wanna pay us, but we are idiots and couldn't come up with effective pricing)
meanwhile learn proper JS (and node.js, also getting from noob to pro in vue.js/vuex and react/redux)
also getting better in linux server management
2019 - The year I try freelancing as a contractor and doing some paid side projects as an alternative to permanent employment. I'm sure it'll be ok, I've only got a mortgage to pay and a young family to feed! 😬
Seriously though, looking forward to getting a wider range of experience and having some in-between contract down time. What are your experiences of contracting?1
I'm just a random student that didn't really accomplish something well-known or anything, but I'm very dedicated and always had a project in my spare time running. My goal for 2019 is finishing a playable version of a game I'm developing on my own for about a year now. It's all planned out and I just got to put more hours into it. Really looking forward to people seeing what I'm capable of!1
Finishing thesis, Passing degree, Work in a new professional environment, starting Master studies ^^
Be better with React and Co. Learn Typescript to improve my sanity. Learn Rust. Read and study my copy of Computer Science Distilled: Learn the Art of Solving Computational Problems.
1. Finish the product I'm working on.
2. Finish the researches left in between because of the point one
Dev goals for 2019:
At least one substantial tech blog post per month (no rain-checks allowed)
Do whatever it takes to have Elixir as the focus of my day job instead of .Net
Next year goals:
1. Learn how to use Macintosh.
2. Learn better Linux.
3. Finish an android app that I am too bored to finish.
4. Evolve social skills for Humans.
* dive into devops
* grow my own agency
* graduate with a computer science degree
My top goal is work more on my project https://github.com/RiderExMachina/... and get it up and going.
1. I want to know how many JS frameworks will the world have
2. Will I stop drinking alcohol one day?
3. Will programmers create robots to conquer a new world?1
1. Be lost in thought less.
2. Listen to people more attentively.
3. Read 3 computer science books.
Note: Last year my resolution was to read 3 computer science books and I'm proud to say that I read 2.5 computer science books. Didn't fully reach it but 2 and a half books in a year is damn better than 0. They were: "Clean Code", "The Mythical Man-Month", and half of "Algorithms 4th Edition".
My goals this year:
1. Getting certified for Spring core
2. Getting certified for Java OCP 8
3. Write my first blog about “something interesting”
4. Update my personal website
5. Getting a drivers license
So if someone has some ideas/tips that would be great.1
My new year resolution as a dev:
1. Competing in Kaggle competitions
2. Motivate peoples in data science

Brush up on TI-BASIC, maybe expand to Commodore BASIC.
Learn more Z80ASM.
+ Taste Dartlang and Flutter
+ Do something with WebXR and/or WebAssembly
+ Start some lil projects
+ Learn more about Kubernetes and monitoring services
All the things Zohar planned for 2018, but I didn’t had enough time to do them. And probably a million new things.
Study algorithms, redo my personal website, start a few side projects, learn some basic DevOps . . .
And so begins the job search, sigh
New Year Resolutions:
1. Build a perception system for self driving cars as a project.
2. Learn Rust
Any other suggestions?
Be agile, practice patterns, read the core literature (GoF, uncle Bob...)
Actually finish a pet project.
Make a full application in elixir with Phoenix frameworks
Deeper understanding of functional programming
