Who are these people?
Who have side projects?
Where do they find the time?
Where do they get the motivation from?
Where do they get ideas from?
My manager recently created an android game as a side project... He also suggested me to have side projects if I wanna grow fast :/
I, wake up, pick up some motivation to finish office work (which I actually like) and it's already evening!
Is something wrong with me?11
When you do a microproject on some framework, make sure you know how it works, as in, know what you've written rather than blindly copying from tutorials, stackoverflow or documentations.
After working on Python (Flask and alembic) I switched jobs. Now I'm on Java (DropWizard and Hibernate)... Now I realise how easy Python was.2
As someone who isn't that much of a people's person (like a lot of coders), how difficult is it to manage a relationship? (as in a romantic one)19
Mandatory WFH for everyone for the next 3 days.
I have just this weekend moved to a new apartment and haven't got WiFi yet. :/3
I graduated from a non elite institute, from non CS branch. I was working in a not so know startup. It was so difficult to get referrals at big orgs like Amazon, Flipkart...
Now that I'm already in Flipkart, atleast 1 recruiter contacts me each day with openings in the best companies in India... Seriously wth, I made a switch a month ago!1
Pro tip by a Noobie: Whenever you use an open sourced software, and set it up using some tutorial, make sure you download the latest distribution.
Wasted 2 days fixing something while setting up KeyCloak, eventually downloaded the latest version and worked fine. There was a bug in KeyCloak apparently.
Happened the same 2 and a half years ago trying to write node scripts for ElasticSearch, using an older ES library -_-3
Indian housing market literally exploits bachelors who look to take a house on rent. Motherfucking retards!9
If coding is fun then your job (Backend Developer) should be fun right?
You have to setup projects which isn't fun.
You have to setup tools which isn't fun.
You have to write unit tests which isn't fun.
You have to learn to use some frameworks which may not be fun.6
When you ask a nice question on StackOverflow, everyone ignores it...
When you ask a dumb one, they shower downvotes -_-
So, I get this super awesome machine, a hardware which was my dream to use for gaming...
2.2Ghz i7, 16GB DDR4 RAM, 4GB Radeon Pro 555X, and SSD.
Its a Mac. Nevermind, CSGO is there for Mac.
The IT dept has some weird shit on this laptop that can sense if I'm doing something wrong 🙄
Why could they not spare us?9
So... I just switched...
2.9 times the previous basic salary, 1.5 times variable pay, one time stocks (conditions are there) amounting to 91% of my previous fixed pay.
For the first time apart from Data Structures and Algorithms, there was a Machine Coding round where they asked me to create a small app using any language without data persistence or GUI, to see my code designing ability, LLD, code quality, whether I can implement OOP and write modular code and to see how extensible my code will be.
I did well.2
If being late can be marked as "half day leave"; should leaving early also be marked as "half day leave"?
On a side note, my company already has just 3.4 out of 5 ratings on the basis of 3 ratings, on glassdoor... Now they're messing up with 2 employees on notice period. Both of us are planning to give 1. :)5
Why are companies so biased against employees those who come late and work late as compared to those who come early and leave early?
Why is it okay to leave early but not so much to come late instead?
After some of us ignored repeated warnings, we've been told that anyone come after 10:30am will be marked half day absent.
So, if they do so, I'll sit there in office playing Fifa or Table Tennis, and not work until the second half starts xD
The reason for such biasness is that the daily stand-up is at 10:30, even though more people wanted it to be after 11. They even took a vote. And yet it was ignored (funnily initially more ppl voted for 11 initially and somehow some of the votes changed for in favor of 10am... Now slowly, because half the team wouldn't be on time, it's shifted to 10:30am.
And funnily, I'm already serving notice period in this company.9
Sent a User Story link to a senior that he had requested (10+ years of exp)...
Me: Sir, why do we need this US?
Me: Yes sir, why do we need that?
Him: Yes, that's what I'm asking you, why do we need this?
Me: But sir I asked first 🙄1
If some older employee writes the same code, nobody bats an eye. If a newer employee (with less than 2 years in the company) writes the exact same line, everybody loses their minds (in PR review)...
Not that I give too many fucks generally, but sometimes this partiality is annoying AF.

So, there were four judgement rounds, over a period of 36 hours.
During the 3rd judgement, the judge says we have a potentially winning project, we just need to put things together now.
During the fourth judgement round, my laptop's Network Interface Card crashes, while running Node server and ElasticSearch server (while another laptop was running a Django server)...
On top of that, the judge assumes that the probability distribution of having a chest disease that we were showing in the form of heatmap on a chest X-ray, was actually body heatmap... And we were saying wherever there is more heat, is the diseased part.
My only hackathon...
Funniest reason to get rejected in an interview...
"While technically we were okay your level, we were unsure of your exact reason for joining GreedyGame and not some other company."
Now I wonder, what's more pathetic, their grammar or their reason.7
How does your organisation and team balance PR comments demanding changes and dev time?
Here, while fixing PR comments we sometimes end up wasting as much time as we took in actually developing the feature... As a result, almost every major user story overshoots the estimation and almost every sprint gets delayed.
Yes, to each his own; but talking in general, why do you think this time wasting happens?
Do you think that happens because some of us are not as experienced as the others, the existing code not being up to the mark giving a bad example, or just a skewed review process?2
Found this in our Python codebase:
my_dict[key] = "%s" % str(my_dict[key])
Best way to convert a value to string xX
Imagine requesting something from a girl/boy you're interested in, and getting replies in Http codes...
What are the funniest?
