So I was asked to create a new feature for an API.
I warned the client by email that it would make them unable to use an existing API call, and that it would always return 403 forbidden to them. They said okay.
I implemented the feature. Two weeks later I get an email: "Why doesn't the API work anymore? We keep getting 403 messages"
In pull requests, I point out every spelling mistake, unnecessary whitespace and formatting issue.
It's not really a bad practice, but my teammates don't like it.2
Why do people use "hashtags" in their posts' main text? There is even a separate input field for tags when creating a rant. #fuckingstop9
So I created a web API with a request that responds with hourly values for a requested day. The API is only used by clients' systems (not users directly).
Today I got the assignment to create another request that responds with the *sum* of all values in a day, just because "the competition also offers this"...
I mean come on, can't those clients just sum up the returned values from the first request themselves? 😡1
