My internship is coming to an end and I think my boss is testing my limits.
So, in the beginning of this week, he assigned me a non reproducible bug that has been causing trouble to the whole team for months.
Long story short, when we edit or create a planned order from the backend, once in fifteen, a product is added to the list and "steals" the quantity from another product.
Everyone in the company has experienced this bug several times but we never got to reproduce it consistently.
After spending the whole week analyzing the 9 lines of JS code handling this feature, reading tons of docs and several libraries source code. I finally found a fix by "bruteforce testing" with selenium and exporting screenshots, error logs and snapshots of the html source.
Today my first ever PR on a community repo on Github just got merged!
I was always afraid to open a PR on any project because of my lack of self confidence. It's a really big milestone for me and I'm really proud to say that the code and the tests I wrote immediately got approved and merged into the main branch.2
4th week of internship begins and today, for the first time, features that I programmed got deployed to the production server !
I'm proud of myself and I really enjoy working there !
It's challenging and at the same time really cool.8
It was 11:30 pm, started working a small feature telling myself "This will only last 30 minutes".
Next time I looked at the time it was 7:30 am and sun was shining through my curtains.
TLDR: There's some days where the Gods of IT are not with you. Just lost a whole day of work.
So this morning, we (me and my team) big performance issues with our web app. Lot's of requests time out, big latency, etc
Try to ssh to VPS, latency of 10 seconds between user input and output.
Usual checks: RAM ok, Proc ok, hard drive ok, reboot server (20 minutes), update/upgrade
We decide to call OVH. After 15 minutes call, we try to reboot in rescue mode. Reboot fails at 60% + everything freezes.
After an hour, OVH opens an incident ticket on +200 vps instances (including mine) everything is down during +1h
Finally everything is okay ! Even had time to migrate my new database schema.
Still, quick heavy on the mind but feels good to go home with everything working out correctly
Some """friend""" of mine asked me help because he has trouble installing WAMP on a Linux distro.
Me: why don't you try to install a LAMP server instead, you are on Linux, you can do whatever you want.
Him: LAMP is not a thing, this doesn't exist, there's no package called like that.
Me: *sends a tutorial to setup a web dev server*
Him: You are so unhelpful, why are you disrespectful like that ?!?
Me: *having some murder thoughts*
Why do I still reply to these people ?5
Fucking Gmail !!!! I hate you so much !!!
My mail server is fucking perfect, I have all the records in my DNS and even have a 10/10 score on mail-tester.com.
But this fucking Gmail keeps putting me the spam folder ! Why do you hate my so much ?23
The integration of technologies project I have this year. Not yet finished but I already learned a lot of very cool stuff.
First, I learned a new programming language + framework (Ruby on Rails)
Second, for the first time, I implemented a continuous deployment pipeline with Capistrano and Travis ci.
Third, first time I programmed a Restful API.
And more cool stuff coming up ! :D
I freaking love learning !
Just spent 3h setupping a Ruby on Rails deployment system with Capistrano.
Was intense but God's sake it's satisfying when it works flawlessly !
Follow up on this rant : https://devrant.com/rants/1768571/...
I got answers !
One asked me for my availabilities and I'm waiting for a response with a meeting.
The other one is going to call me tomorrow for a phone interview.
Do you have some tips for me ?
Today is the first day of the last year of my bachelor's degree.
It's also the first day of work for one of my closest friends.
I wish him the best for this new adventure.
Good luck my friend and have a nice day !2
I just sent two emails for an internship in two companies.
Hope they'll reply back.
I'll keep you updated on that6
This thing is too good. I think it's the best hack I've ever seen !
Last update on my student job.
Today is my last day. Even thought it was tough sometimes it was a really good experience.
I worked with amazing people and had a little taste of IT limitation. Didn't had full admin access so I was limited on a lot of things I had to do but that taught me to say no to my supervisors when some things were not possible.
I'm very proud of the final result so do my superiors and colleagues. I'm really impressed by what I was capable of doing and that gives more self confidence. I know I made the right choice and I know I'll continue enjoy computer science as much as I do today.2
Ok, I see a lot of hate about PHP and I always wondered what is the experiences people have had with PHP to like or dislike it.
Personally, PHP was the first programming language I learnt and used, so it has it's special place in my heart.
I acknowledge that it has it's pros and cons (as any other programming language). My hypothesis is : People have used php in a project they didn't like or didn't turned out how they expected. Or they used php for something it wasn't ment for.
Do people hate php because it's a trend ? How many php haters have good reasons to hate it that much ?
I'm just curious to know the thoughts and experiences (good or bad) of other devs.15
Wow ! What a milestone ! 1000++'s
Thanks everyone for this amazing community ! I really feel I'm part of something, I never got so involved in a community and it's awesome :D
Thanks to you all ! All the doggos for me now !12
I'm in love with service workers. This is so fucking satisfying (also love the offline first capabilities)6
I want to create a website with matierial design.
Which CSS framework should I use if I want to keep it simple ?22
Right now, in my student job.
Create a multi-department + multi-lingual intranet, only using SharePoint and out of the box features. Can't add my own scripts or web parts. I'm now the master of workarounds1
