Almost every single website lacks any architecture behind it.
I bet that only 5% of the teams actually make their application, website and etc. architecture first and then they start to build on a strong foundation.
By architecture i mean technical constraints servers etc. functional aspect, visual appearance, security and etc. even an old fashioned tree map with the pages and links...
The fun really stars when new pages,functionalities, designs, and everything else is added in the wild you end up with a product well pretty much a clusterfuck and you need to fix let say a fucked up navigation or a meaningless categorization and etc. but i find those task not only tedious but also not so easy if you lack a good architecture of your product, those things are important and help to have 2737383991727% better performing product.7
All of them - Apple, Google you name it all of those big tech companies went ham and no one is giving a shit about its users anymore everything is about sales and market share.
I get it money change people but come on how fucking corrupt and unethical your ass should be to treat the people who actually made you rich like sheep.
Of course the game is much more complicated that what it seems there are politics involved, governments and etc. but how on the fucking earth there was not one who would say NO we are not going to fuck with our users lets make something useful, something good we are going to stay true to what we believe in and why we started it...
Look Apple you can't deny them that they make a good product but why on the fucking earth you are going to make the hardware so fucking hard to change and repair and you are going to overcharge the users so much come on that should be illegal it is extortion $700 for a KEYBOARD, overthrotling mobile devices to burn so you can get the new ones...
Facebook so much privacy and data sold and used for unethical purposes. People fucking suicide themselves because Instagram treats and mental disorders... thanks to the "social media".
Google they are the worse from all of them with the amount of technology that they have, money and access to data they can do whatever they want. Every single day when I go to bed and when I put my android device to charge and I put it right next to my bed on a desk, the moment the device is there it starts updating, not any where else in my house, not in other time of the day the exact same place and time, that shit is fucking scary :D
I recently watched a great Linux video from a linux fest from Bryan Lunduke link - https://youtube.com/watch/...
Even linux is not what was supposed to be.
Pretty much I think we are screwed and I would love to see small companies staying true to themselves not selling out. They will be winners and they will make the best products and services in the future but I am not sure how likely is this to happen since the smalls guys to stay in the game they will need money...
I do like devRant tho :) I got free stickers :) and the people who build it even engage with your posts, those small touches keeps the users happy. When was the last time you had the chance to chat with Apple CEO or Google?5
So I just got a macbook pro 13 2017. What is your experience with the keyboard?
I still don't know how to feel a lot of people online complain about keyboard so far i do enjoy it but i am little concerned about the keys and all those complains.
Feel free to share your experience and do let me know if i did a mistake.6
So yesterday I had conversation with our "head of development". We were discussing speed issues with the website and I showed him a report from lighthouse extension.
There are a lot of things technically that could be optimized and we were talking about the style.css file since it shows that there could be potentially saved 6 seconds due to unused styles.
So I explained to him that when they use a ready template from themeforest for $50 bucks that style.css contain the style for all of the theme pages and when they use only like 5 pages from it the report shows that the code that is not used could be optimized.
And i told him that people usually use frameworks and skeleton css libraries or even so unbelievable for them they write their own style so they have code only that is used on their website and he was like "this is not true nobody do this go and tell the other developer that he needs to clean it and he will tell me to fuck myself. When it works goods and loads fast on my pc then it is good for all the people."
Why the fuck i am still waisting my time here i do not know.4
So my boss asked me to take a look at a section of our website and see what can be improved to be more understandable, because "it doesn't feel right".
So I opened the page btw the whole website is complete potato it is based on $50 themeforest admin template and some php for the backend.
First i took in consideration all the info that we have and I made a prototype based on the latest trends and ux principles.
I showed that to my team and the head developer told us that we cannot change the text of one word because it will break the backend integration with our erp system.
The second responsible dev told me that he is not designer and he cannot change the whole website based on this prototype.
*Spoiler alert* I am not a dev but ihave finished couple of courses about web dev fundamentals, some codeacademy, freecodecamp now I am learning react from udemy and i am member of a ux institute. Trying to self learn to code.
How the fuk i am supposed to work. I don't understand those guys they don't want to make a fuxking simple effort to make something good and useful for the business, users and etc. Wtfffffffff is that shit. Wtf i am supposed to do. 4 months i waited 6 pictures to be changed 4 fucking monthsssssss because they have important work. Wtffffffff ffsssssss4
Back in the days when i was maybe third or fourth grade we had school classes called something like that Work and Technic and they were teaching us some shit on those computers. They are called Pravetz 8 and they were made in our country. I just remember drawing some lines on the screen the goal was to make a football field. What was the language or what we were doing I have no fucking clue 😂5
What's your choice of preference for a laptop display size 13' 14' or 15.6'? What is your experience with portable laptops?
I am about to get a portable 14 inch laptop although I got 15.6 but I never saw such a machine in person.
Will it be sufficient for a beginner? My main concern is will there be enough screen space for a text editor running side by side with browser just basic stuff that you can do and learn.6
The struggle is real!
So, I just found this community and I really dig it, it's amazing.
I want to share my frustrations with you guys and to seek for guidance, of you can be harsh rant me.
The styling part is doable since i also do enjoy design a lot.
When i read the stuff i understand and dig the most of it but when i am in a real world situation where I need to actually solve a simple problem i look like a fish on a dry hot asphalt.
When i open codewars i really cannot solve anything and it is frustrating.
I wanna be a dev i wanna create but i am nowhere.
I am going to go over every free course from the beginning and try again.
Feel free to throw anything you think any good advices will be appreciated.9
