Backend Dev: Sir, I think we have a problem with our code. The function does have a lot of bugs in production that we can't maintain it.
Manager: Okay Front-end. You get a new Ticket. Prevent this bug by today
Sometimes, I feel sorry for my colleague.2
"Why are you sometimes late?"
Because your promised office was always late. Had to commute 2 hours and work for almost 10 hours in weekdays just to sleep for 4 hours.
You said that the new Office will be in August. Now it's October and it's still half-baked.
Learn Empathy first5
PM: "Why are you absent on a regular holiday?"
FUCK, I JUST NEED THAT DAY TO GET PAID AND REST AND YOU WANT ME TO WORK FOR IT DURING HOLIDAYS?14
"Are you sure you want to commit a billion dollar valuation to finish an MVP?"
*Shows only mockups and has a deadline of less than a month*
No thanks. I don't think this company will ever survive
"We'll reach you out soon"
This is a sign you got rejected without hurting you.
"How do you see yourself few years from now?"
Is a sign that your employer would end your contract or you get to be terminated if you say that you will not be in their company.
"What's your expected salary?"
If you went overboard, they won't accept you. You either lower it or never give a fixed salary.
God why did no one tell me about these sooner. I'm facing mind-reading interviewer/recruiter/hr just to please them.3
There are alot of questions in the job industry I'm not aware of. job gaps, lying, job hopping, hr and little details I didn't even notice.
I have a job gap for 2 months.(Nov and December) and planning to land a job on January.
For 2 weeks, I got burned out and need to recover my motivation to move on because my employer told me the job industry of not being honest, but being a dick and slave is what it gets to keep the job.
This December, I'm just going to do my side projects and little coding challenge(not the fizzbuzz). I don't plan to create short term side projects. I have to keep on practicing.
I'll be a slave in January. But I don't want to work 48 hours a week.1
Can't seem to find any vuejs jobs here.
There are more react/angular jobs than vue here.
Can't find flutter jobs either. I'm thinking I'm light years away from the industry.2
: Tools are just tools. Technology evolves quickly.
: Still uses 1 language for all use-cases
I mean. Tools are just tools. But don't exclude language as tools. Without a framework/purpose. That language may eventually die and the descendants will also die.
I applied for an unknown job.
Email: you'll be taking Junior Developer
Interviewer: We need fullstack developer with a salary of $100 for two months of training and $450 if you have great accomplishments9
I always read the full job description whenever there's a job hiring.
I have a keen eye in some job description that this company is a red flag.
"Must have 4 years of experience in Blazor or other related web development"
"Be a multitasker"
"Must have experience in frontend web development using Figma or other prototyping tools"2
Estimating the task. A total of... 2 months.
Other guy: I think we should squeeze it to 1 month.
Others: I think we should squeeze it in 2 weeks to meet the deadline..
Deadline: 2 weeks
In Linux Mint 19 TINA. All I did was
"sudo apt-get remove python"
then, I saw cinnamon being removed in the terminal. Why is linux so dependent on python that much?19
I don't think it's still a valid years of experience of react native/flutter thing when they're job posting.
"Must have 4 years experience with react native/flutter"
I'll be seeing "I'm sorry, but you did not have 4 years of experience in flutter"5
"What are the four pillars of OOP?"
Me:(I'm not an OOP guy, but focused on design patterns)
4. ??(was it inheritance or composition).
Fuck, Because of the phrase "composition over inheritance". I've been mixing both composition and inheritance at the same time.10
10 hours later...
"FINALLY, I'M DONE SETTING UP TYPESCRIPT CONFIGURATION"
I was heavily inspired by typescript syntax, but the configuration is as complicated as webpack. Damn you frameworks5
"Don't worry, you're still in our group chat"
The next day...
"Your account is deactivated"
Dev1: "How did you wrote this code? It causes bug on production."
Me: *checks on gitlens*
"Dev1... 3 months ago"1
I made a README.md to a bitbucket repo that when a new dev comes in, he/she can refer to the documentation.
After a few hours....
"how do you run this application" 😩3
Front end developer is still getting a ticket even though the security flaw lies in the back-end.
Today, every click of the UI has an overlay of circular progress indicator indicates that there will be a synchronous actions in an asynchronous requests.
1 click = 1 loading state
Employer:"Have you tried JIRA before?"
Me: "I know JIRA, it came from a company called 'Atlassian'. I was interested in their product, but it says that it has 30 days trial. So I didn't have a chance to use it."
After a month..
"Our JIRA is pirated, we will use it in our internal servers"..
Me: (I thought this company got an enterprise product of JIRA).8
"Wow, you knows how to hack the system"
Me: Well... I was one of the creators of that system...
Me inside: Please don't use localStorage ever again1
Thank you for deleting our very first sprint.
The development was horrible and the management was a bizarre.
Thank you JIRA, and that one gay who accidentally deleted all 120+ stories and task.
PS. Calling gay is not an offensive word. He likes being called gay2
Tools are just tools,
Build a house with a blueprint,
But don't use one tool to build a house.
A friend of mine came to ask help for their capstone project.
Adding AI feature to a capstone project that doesn't solve the problem.
Their professor wants to add that because IT students can do it by just downloading a package.
Like, are you serious??
They teach "Hello World" and expects an output of very complex application.
How does it feel to be excluded from your team even though you've worked so hard to finish the project.
Then there's this guy that doesn't do anything, still gets the glory.2
A lesson from a former UX Designer to DevOps
READ THE FUCKING JOB DESCRIPTION WHEN APPLYING FOR A JOB. COMPANIES DON'T EVEN FUCKING KNOW WHAT THESE JOB TITLES ARE AND JUST MAKE IT FANCY2
Someone said that I should optimize the performance of a website. In fact, the problem was the hardware specs and they still want me to optimize the UI. I have less dependencies, no weird event loops and a JSON that is twice as big because the guys at the backend said they're too lazy to optimize it.
So... It's either they upgrade the specs or blame the guys who made the api response.1
