Promotions that take ages and end up with no title changes when successful.
Why is it this hard to update a title especially for someone who's been here for 3 years and still has the same title as day 1? And it doesn't seem like Workday is the culprit here.6
So it turns out Moq (.NET mocking library) is leaking developers info via Git and gets in the way of builds with SponsorLink warnings.
Not only this is a GDPR violation but also a shit move from the dev (kzu).
I wasn't aware of that until a colleague found
https://reddit.com/r/dotnet/... and went through some of the GH issues.5
Integrating Netlify Identity into a modern app.
You'll think for such a tool, that it will have up-to-date examples and guides. And that once someone logs in, they're redirected to whatever route they were on instead of being stuck on the "Logged in as ..." modal?
But no, it's several years behind.
I don't understand how Facebook can restrict my account when I'm following *their official guide* to make a WhatsApp bot (which entails creating a business manager account and all that tralala) which basically makes it impossible to continue through the guide to get the WhatsApp bot to do what I want it to do (I only got as far as having it send a demo text and set up some of the account BS).
Needless to say, I went for the Discord bot approach and got it to do what I needed.3
Working in a company where you can't even have your recent tabs when opening the browser and have the stupid corporate start page. At least there's Session Buddy where you can open a window with yesterday's tabs, but why on Earth would employees not have the possibility to keep the recent tab setting enabled? Especially when it was like this pre-merger.3
Get back into regularly maintaining OS projects I used to actively maintain.
And resume the daily Disc Golf Strong exercises/stretches.
My new website and All Contributors projects.
I wish I didn't have to spend time house hunting and dealing with my current flat's issues.6
Learning C# .NET Core for a PWA + server + DB project that a client wanted when he could have done all the backend stuff himself.
I ended up burning out because of that project and the crippling hate for C#.10
The thirst for revenge got me to learn Batch, making fancy CLI programs. It wasn't until I got into Web Dev with self-directed lessons to learn HTML4, CSS2 and JS ES4 where I started programming more and more.
And apart from the high school course and uni it was mostly self-direction that got me to know how to program and code.
That weird feeling when today can be described as:
But the apartment is still infested with pests3
I choose mine (full-stack) because I worked on countless projects on my own and always had the curiosity that span the whole picture although I'm leaning towards a T-shape specialist.
Context: Working in a small IT department of an SME that sells wine during my uni placement year.
Having the MD come into the office cubicle without notice or even knocking and always expecting people to work long hours (when his dad was more of a _work efficiently 3h per day_ type of person) and not hold his promise on getting me to work on projects relevant to my degree and the initial contract (where I was also paid less than promised).
Usually when listening to music I have on my main Spotify playlist (using headphones), after a good 7-8h sleep followed by a good breakfast.
It's usually better when:
- there's no one around to interrupt me,
- I know what I'm going to do and
- no distracting noise.
- Get comfortable with Angular 10, at least to the point where it's not too far skill-wise from Vue 3.
- Getting better at using Terraform, AWS and GitLab, and possibly picking up another cloud provider (like DigitalOcean, Linode or Vultr).
- Being used to the C4 model and being less uncertain about how I can model software systems even if I end up switching from (C4-)PlantUML to Structurizr.
- Progressing on some OSS projects, namely like All Contributors and other side projects I've put on hold.
- Getting a new laptop (when I know which one would suit me more).
Working on a C# project that took ages (to the point it burnt me out) not long after dealing with a relatively simple static site project that ended up incomplete because one of the team members couldn't be arsed in providing the info needed.
Working on a project where I get to put my UI/UX, software architecture and fullstack dev skills to the test on a problem I have may benefit others, as I started a new job that pays well.
Setting up the meeting agenda in an accessible place (the same doc used for every recurring meeting which is accessible by everyone in the team) and having the calendar invite that goes to their emails... And guess what?
Those SCABBY NUMPTIES still find a way not to see the fucking video conference link (or sort out their calendar, they are freaking CS grads) and then proceed to spend at least half the meeting (and often showing up late) not having a clue what was expected of them...
YA DIMWIT!! EVERYTHING IS IN THE SAME DOCUMENT, AND YET YOU DIDN'T KNEW WHAT TASKS YOU HAD TO DO BEFORE, INCLUDING THE ONES YOU WERE TOLD TO DO WEEKS AGO???
They all have a BSc in CS (one of which has a MSc) and yet shit like this happens occasionally.
And that happened several times.2
My country's "track" and trace system.
... A fucking joke, especially when you consider the fact it uses Excel as the FUCKING Database!15
Has anyone (who does either Data Analysis, ML/DL, NLP) had issues using AMD GPUs?
I'm wondering if it's even worth considering or if it's too early to think about investing in computers with such GPUs.10
That feel when you're saving for a laptop and trying to work on a project for a client but your laptop is quite old (3 years and 5 months in my case) and decides to go crazy when for months ago, the same stuff open wouldn't lead to a variety of freezes.
I mean, there's new specs and stuff but spending in the £1-2 grand on a new one (at least one more up-to-date and with better specs) isn't going to happen anytime soon especially with the new job coming soon.
At least, I can do some of the stuff on my phone 😅.
Programming has taught me that if I want to create something digital, I can do it myself or teach myself or work on it with others.
That feel when you realise that your 3 years old laptop's microphone has problems making it hard for others to hear you clearly and that the external microphone you have is useless (probably a bad batch tho).
And most shops are closed due to the lockdown here and you can't afford getting a new one or going to a store to test microphones.7
That feel when you have a deadline for a website project which requires content from someone in the team and after months of asking for the content they give it to you a few days before a demo day and guess what?
They freaking forgot to send you everything needed so some of the images are blank and hidden and one of the pages has dummy text.
Even the higher ups chasing him, didn't help.4
As the end of the decade is a week away.
I was wondering what would the tech predictions for the next decade would be?
It can be anything *as long as* it's tech related (e.g. computer languages, frameworks/libs, tools, processes, techniques, ...).
Remember to keep the thread civil and if someone already commented something you were about to comment, upvote their suggestion.17
If only NPM' security team (so pretty much NSP's) would inform the package owners as soon as they discover vulnerabilities and give them the standard 30-90 days to fix them and release a new version before going public, instead of straight out publishing the security audits which generates noise on the terminal (obviously when using npm) and on Github
Headphones on in a (fairly) quiet place with my phones in silent. And I'm working on something I like using tools I like.
I just discovered a bug on v18.104.22.168 on my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge while looking for a bookmarked rant.1
Worst: Seeing the huge list of stuff I need to learn to land a job in WebDev knowing I kept on trying to get unfinished project as close as possible to a usable stage.
Best: Learning and using some tools and better OSs than before
