Late one night I realize that Visual Studio has an update available.
> Might as well. Maybe they finally implemented that auto bug-fixer.
I download the update and it warns me that I must restart my computer. Fair enough, I was just about to shut down my computer anyways.
I turn off my computer for the night.
Boot up the next day, try to open Visual Studio.
It says to me: "No, I mean, you gotta RESTART. Not just re-start, or whatever shit you just did."
Ok. Restarted the machine.10
Gave the marketing team access to JIRA and gave them permissions to create tickets. Don’t know if that was a management’s design or what. Tickets were poorly written and I had to make frequent follow ups to figure out what the heck was actually being requested. I did get accused of “questioning the request” at least once. It was a big WTF because I think marketing thought they managed dev team but they didn’t.
Marketing also didn’t give a damn about agile processes despite being told some simple rules, such as don’t change your ticket details after a dev has already begun work on it. I would pick up a ticket thinking it’s just html and css updates, then it would change to include an api update. No no no. You’ve just turned a 1 day ticket into a 1 week ticket. I don’t have time for these shenanigans.
I would also submit tickets for code review and marketing would say it’s not ready for review. Then why was that ticket in the to do column for the past two days?! They couldn’t make a decision and would submit revisions every single day.
And they would think devs could do everything. No, never assume the front end dev can pick up back end tasks.
No one on dev team really cared because we were all looking for new jobs anyway. The company was planning to lay us off in a year. Every month a dev gave notice and left.4
Forced to take a "course" on agile. "Course" meaning 6-7 150 minutes sessions of uselss blabber. Fucking hell this is exactly like the worst of college courses.
Such a massive waste of time.
Giving my honest, somewhat filtered opinion in the dev group, I am in the minority it seems.
"But it's such a great opportunity!"
"<MANAGEMENT GUY> really pulled some strings to get us this course and I am fully confident in <MANAGEMENT GUY>'s criteria."
FFS, he's not in this chat. You won't get a raise by brown nosing him this hard you twit.7
This is why you shouldn’t try to redefine words and deviate from accepted word definitions.
Dev team/product decides to put the word [content] in a JIRA ticket’s title. To dev, this means “it’s a CMS change and no code push required.”
A new marketing team comes on board along with a few “website manager” type folks. They start putting [content] in JIRA ticket titles, but they think [content] means content change and their requests do require a code push instead of a CMS update.
First time it happens, I comment on the ticket and tag the reporter. I explain what [content] actually means for us. Most importantly, I explain that it tells us how to prioritize the request and how to deploy the changes.
Happens again. And sometimes they’re requesting changes for the next day when we only do weekly releases. I suspect they didn’t believe me because I’m lower in the chain. It’s also easy to forget because we are using “content” to mean something different here. I ask my boss does [content] still mean what I think it does? It does. 😕
I just decide to comment on the ticket and let them know the request requires a deploy and that’s why I’m changing the title of the ticket. They might also have to wait until the weekly release.
Overall, a bunch of lunacy all around.8
Reason #69 why I'm considering nuking windows on my main pc.
I had to print something... (I know, why would I want a document to exist in the physical world?)
1. The pc couldn't see the printer, that was connected via USB... Replugging the cable fixed it... How?
2. I had to print images, so I had pre-opened the 9 files. After printing 4 images windows decided to update the imageviewer, closing all the instances and not open them again... Wtf?
So that's how my evening was fucked, how was yours?
Way off topic but maybe someone has experience here..
I've over 11years experience as software engineer, mostly in Fintech with a couple of years in Telecom all in Europe (German passport)
I'm 100% self-taught, straight outta high school, no college or other degrees.
Is here anyone who managed to get in to the US without a degree and if so, how did that work?
I held a limited visa before but that was bound to my dad's visa and my brother recently got his work visa approved. Don't know it that might help..6
Is there anything specific you'd do/reason with if a company offered you less than the advertised salary range but you are otherwise quite interested?
They admitted to have fucked up the range because the recruiter (who posts the ads) forgot the location-based market adjustment. It is true that the original location (which was unadjusted to mine) would justify a higher salary.
Naturally, I applied expecting a higher salary based on the range, but I feel I must also understand their admitted mistake. They are quite a small company, new to international recruitment and have immediately fixed the ads after this. Then again, if I could get them to at least reach the bottom of the range, I could make an easy decision.12

anyone stoked to see the new MacBooks? with the technology evolving so fast, i wonder how the hardcore spec people are feeling these days. like if someone would have spend 4-5k dollars to max out an i3 processor laptop/pc with 64gb ram and 4tb ssd in say, 2011, how is their system coping up with the softwares of 2021?
i feel like going all hardcore at some point, buying a heavily loaded macbook pro with all my savings at once, a 1 time investment for next 10 years. but i know that next year, some new processor is going to come up and ram over my clock speeds. that some new version of my current softwares will come and force me to dump my lapttop
how do software manage to evolve in a manner that they don't harm the storage, the ram , the display and other hardware, but absolutely ruin the processor and render it useless?1
hey fellas, if you are 😍abused as a child/teen, don't feel sad about it. as it might be the best thing that can happen to you. abused🥰people are cool and different than normies.
so, if you want to be very cool, find some way you were abused or ateast act as if you are abused🤩, if you act long enough, people will believe you and you will successfully trick😵your brain into thinking that you are actually abused😘. after a point, it won't matter if you'er really abused🤗 or just acting to appear cool and get attention.😎
to live as abused🥰person, you can do more dangerous things than normies. life is more fun that way. you are edgier than most people. if you naturally love😍being abused😋, you might as well be abused, or just don't know it yet or may be you are just a masochist1
