I was talking to a friend, and they were arguing that HTML was in fact a programming language. Their main argument was that you needed HTML to make a website.
I told them you could use something like React, and they said it doesn't count since you're still writing was is basically HTML
Wish me luck12
Do any of you guys who do web development actually use semantic HTML or is it basically the modern xHTML?
I, for one, don't. Old habits die hard13
I only develop UIs with react and only ever with functional components
I would actually DIE without my MacBook Pro 16”
I spend roughly 30 minutes a day trimming my beard. I’m a civilized man after all
I only drink Starbucks coffee, and only if it’s a triple pump latte
Ew what’s jQuery? Sounds like something my grandpa used
Omg really? Are you still using PHP in 2020?! Lame!
Gross. Windows is for n00bs and Linux is for nerds. macOS FTW
Post is comprised of quotes from a classmate who annoyed the living hell out of me13
I’m starting a GitHub repo to collect all the random scripts people have written
They don’t have to do anything especially useful, any script is welcome
Anyone is more than welcome to contribute, the link is https://github.com/ThePotato10/...2
Am I the only one who hates Java but really likes C#?
I don’t know why, they’re basically the same thing, one is basically just a Microsoft clone of the other16
The platform my school is using was obviously designed and developed by people who hate students.
I've seen the teacher panel, and it looks really intuitive, allowing you to see test scores, missing assignments, attendance records easily, and it was obviously well thought-out
however, the UX as a student is a goddamn nightmare
First of all, there's like 5 different places where an instructor can post an assignment, so good luck keeping track of your work
Second of all, there's no way to sort assignments by completion status or due date. Just by when assigned
Third of all, the only way to see your grade in a class is if you dig through a series of menus and submenus and sidebars so complex and stupid it puts the Jira UI to shame
And finally, one of the 'features' of this platform is that students can submit a textbox with markdown formatting natively on the platform. And that should work great and all, but APPARENTLY THE FUCKING DEVELOPERS HAVE NEVER HEARD OF LOCALSTORAGE AND YOU JUST LOSE YOUR WORK IF YOU EVER CLOSE THE TAB FOR ANY REASON!
JUST POOF! AN HOUR OF WORK GONE! YAY!
In conclusion, fuck you4
Even though I love distro hopping, it always makes me kinda sad to send another operating system to the great flash drive in the sky2
One of the online education tools my high school used had client-side validation for test answers
As if that wasn't bad enough, the correct answers were literally marked by the CSS class 'correct', meaning that any idiot who could figure out how to open the devtools could see the correct answers
Thankfully, this program was ditched before it was used for anything major2
CAN SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN TO ME WHAT THE FUCK LAMBDA CALCULUS IS??!?!?!
I swear to fuck, nothing makes you feel more like an idiot than trying to understand functional programming after living all your life in the oop world.
Fucking meta-functions and alligator games.
Fuck this, I'm going back to my happy little Java world11
I started using vim today
Not sure if I'm gonna ditch GUI IDEs and editors completely, but I think I'll try using only vim for a day or two, see how it goes9
I kinda hate how even if people submit good and useful code to OSS repositories, you need to act like a salesperson if you want anyone to notice/care about it
VS Code stories are here.
I'm not making this up, there is now an extension for VS Code that brings instagram-style stories to your editor
It's currently 11:21 pm were I am, and I just finished working
I decided to deploy on a Friday
Those two things are related10
WERE ALL PRINTERS DESIGNED BY INCOMPETENT MONKEYS WHO HAVEN'T EVER TOUCHED AN ACTUAL PIECE OF PAPER IN THEIR LIVES?!
WERE THEY PAID SPECIFICALLY TO MAKE SURE THEY WOULD NEVER WORK WHEN YOU NEED THEM TO?!?
IT REALLY SHOULDN'T BE SUCH A FUCKING PAIN TO DO A GODDAMN SIMPLE THING LIKE PRINT A BLACK AND WHITE JPEG!
I'M NOT ASKING FOR MUCH, JUST A FUCKING EVEN HALFWAY FUNCTIONAL MACHINE THAT DOES AS ADVERTISED AND DOESN'T REQUIRE SACRIFICING A GOAT TO CONNECT TO
FUCK ALL PRINTERS EVERYWHERE30
My mom’s not too great with tech
she’s the kind of person who thinks I’m hacking when I use a terminal
My brother is teaching her to play among us, and it’s the best thing I’ve ever seen4
Is the term for some who uses Linux spelled Linuxer, Linuxxer, egotistical fucker, or something else?8
One of my classmates was working on a login form, and the fucker handtyped a 100+ character email validation regex but forgot to add a check to make sure no fields were blank.
It was funny when I was able to create an account with no username, breaking his website, and even funnier when I told him html forms have a built-in email pattern5
Me: I have a shit ton of schoolwork to do
*Opens a google doc and start working on it*
*spends 20 minutes reformatting it because they way it was laid out annoys me*
I SWEAR TO GOD IF I SEE ONE MORE BUGGY AS HELL SHITTY SNAP PACKAGE I GONNA LOSE MY SHIT AND KILL SOMEONE13
Call me crazy all you want, but I love my tangled mess of cords
Yeah yeah, I know, I know, wouldn't I just love a cordless setup and workspace ...
Bluetooth devices are at best unreliable and at worst don't even work with Linux
I want to just be able to plug my shit in and work, not wait for everything to sync and hope I don't have connectivity issues
Call it living in the past all you want, I don't care. I love my cords
Fuck you and your bluetooth shit4
Parents: You want anything for your birthday?
Me: yeah, can I have a newer PC
Me: Also, can I spend a majority of my time alone messing with it?
My parents were really laid back and basically let me do what I wanted1
The other day, I accidentally broke the R key on my laptop keyboard. The mechanism still works, but the keycap no longer locks in
I go to buy a replacement, since it's really messing with my typing flow, and I find out it costs 7 USD per keycap, plus shipping. That means that to replace every key on my keyboard, it would cost me about $680!!
I only paid about $500 for the ENTIRE FUCKING LAPTOP AND YOU'RE GONNA CHARGE ME $7 FOR A SINGLE FUCKING KEY!!! FUCK YOU ASUS!!!4
The most tedious thing known to man is rewriting your css for mobile after you just spend 3 hours perfecting it for landscape devices8
I was messing with my Ubuntu setup, and somehow, I broke it
Since I didn't have a recent backup, I decided to switch to Manjaro
I'm in love17
