Found out that a pervert from my gf’s highschool took a bunch of screenshots of her Instagram (bikini pictures, etc.) and posted them to the r/breeding and other fucked up subreddits even though she was only 16/17 in the photos
We notified the uni he goes too and nothing happened. We noticed the police of his hometown and they said they couldn’t do anything because he was currently at his uni
He then claimed it was a rumor and it wasn’t him even though the Reddit account that posted it had a previous post that directly connected the Reddit account to his Instagram account and the Reddit account mentioned had a post that mentioned his home town
My poor gf is now having panic attacks bc this motherfucker wanted to jerk his tiny dick off with his retard friends bc they were rejected by her in highschool
It’s taking so much effort not to send him some phishing emails and empty his fucking bank account26
I have a python script that continuously collects data for me. I want to be able to display that data on a node js server. How should I go about this? I was thinking of maybe having the python script send get requests to the server but I feel that is not the right answer. Let me know if u guys need more info, thanks!5
Hi everyone, I’m a college student and I have a career question.
I was contacted by a company to apply to their recent graduate program and it seems like a great opportunity for me. In the program, they assign you to a team (AI/ML, computer vision, automation, compilers, web dev, etc).
I need to send them my resume. I want to work with their computer vision team (I took a computer vision class and fell in love with it) but my resume only has web dev roles (I’ve only had web dev internships).
I’m worried that because my resume only has web dev stuff, I will be assigned to their web dev team instead of their computer vision team.
I really don’t like web dev anymore and I’m not sure how I can express that. Any ideas? Should I add an blurb in my resume expressing my passion for computer vision?2
Anyone else like coding while high? A lot of the time it gives me a different, more simple, point of view of my problem which helps me find a solution a good amount of the time17
I did something really stupid and I need some help.
I was trying to use rvict1 to catch packets from my iPhone. I was high when I was doing it and my Mac asked for some type of permission. I pressed OK by accident instead of using the option to modify my system preferences to continue the process. Now I can’t get that systems preference window to show again. Anybody got any tips?10
Perfect my script to automate YouTube videos to tiktok. The script would take a YouTube url as input and then split the video into 3 minute long pieces ( the longest time allowed for tiktok ) and post it to tiktok. I’ve gotten it before but I had to do some fucked shit bc I couldn’t get puppeteer to bypass tiktok’s bot security so it’s super inconsistent1
Just got comfortable enough with React.js to start answering people’s questions on stack overflow and I have to say it feels good to help people1
I’m a college student at the moment going into my last year. So far I’ve had 3 internships. 2 at start ups and 1 at a medium sized established company. At everyone of these internships I’ve had basically the same task:
Create some software by myself using technology that nobody in the rest of the company has experience using.
I really haven’t had any opportunities to really work in a team environment on a piece of software.
Am I really missing out on something? Or is it ok for me to be missing that experience?
Have any of you guys had this same type of experience with internships?4
Anybody here work with Firebase before?
I have a web app (react) that writes to a Firestore DB and a mobile app (react-native) that reads from the DB. As of right now, in my Firebase console I have the project set up as a web app project. Is this ok even though I’m reading the DB through a mobile app? Let me know if I’m not clear at all. Thanks!8
Debating getting an ipad for note taking, anyone used them before? I’m a college student and I always see tons of kids using them in my classes14
Definitely electrician. I’ve always been obsessed with figuring out how stuff works and I’ve always liked electricity too1
I saw a video on tiktok a couple days ago that had a pretty interesting opinion. The guy said that we should stop creating programming languages and stick to only a couple.
His main point was because with all these different programming languages, there is different syntaxes the programmer has to learn. Even some of the universal syntaxes are different in some languages. For example, in Rust, to print something you use “println!(...);”
He said this is counter productive because in a majority of other programming languages, the ! Means negation. He also said something about Golang also having some of those syntax problems but I can’t remember exactly.
His point was that if we stuck to a single syntax, then we could spend more time doing productive stuff and less time relearning how to do stuff with different syntax. For example, in mathematics all symbols have pretty much the same meaning across the field. An equals sign will always mean the same thing.
What do u guys think? I thought it was an interesting opinion and I think I agree to some degree . I’ll post the link to the video if I find it again24
Took an intro to python course to learn the basics. Then did side project after side project after side project to learn more by myself
Took a software engineering class at my university. The class was online which is common at my school.
The entirety of the class ends up being the prof. scrolling through a google doc while sharing her screen. No watching her program stuff, no opportunities for us to program in class, nothing. Basically like reading documentation for 3 hours.
The final project? A fucking command line tic tac toe game written in python.
My group asked if we could do a tic tac toe multiplayer web app instead and she denied us with no reason
Complete waste of time1
Does devRant randomly crash for anyone else? I’ve noticed it usually crashes when I open a post but I haven’t been able to specify anything more than that10
Doing a little robotics research at school and I needed to pick a faculty advisor.
I pick the prof who teaches the robotics course bc I thought it’d be a great fit
Apparently he’s an assistant prof and he is EXTREMELY unorganized (doesn’t respond to emails, occasionally skips entire meetings without telling me first, etc. )
I send him an email to discuss more about our research...
5 days later he responds and sends me a video invite
He ends up making another kid (a complete stranger to me) work with me.
“Well 2 brains are better than 1 I guess” i said in my mind
Finally meet with the kid and he knows nothing
This is why I like working alone
Everytime I join a group (especially for CS stuff) I am the only person who knows what’s going on and I end up doing the whole thing by myself and 5x slower bc I have to explain every fucking thing to my group mates
I’m done w group work1
Convo I had 5 minutes with someone a just met at school
Them: what are you studying?
Me: computer science, what about you?
Them: so you know how to make websites?
Me: yea I have a couple years of experience in web dev but I like IT and automation more
Them: can I send you my white paper? Would u be ok with making a website for it?
Me: ....... potentially?
Thought it was weird they wanted me to do that for them when I just met them4
Decided to take a AI course bc i felt it was going to be a cool topic and because I have no experience with AI.
I find out on the first day of class that we are using a implementation of Scheme called Scheme Chez Petite.
Scheme is cool and I like using it. I feel like it makes me think in different ways u know.
However, I have a 2015 Macbook air. And a bunch of my classmates have similar Macbooks too.
Our Prof. told us that the only fucking way to run scheme Chez petite locally is through a fucking windows VM.
So now I have to download a fucking 10GB windows OS so I can fucking do my homework.
And, since i have a 2015 Macbook air, everytime I start the VM, my computer sounds like its gunna fucking explode and it absolutely destroys the battery life.
I feel like there is a better way to do this than through the VM. Or maybe not using Scheme Chez Petite and maybe something else? idk9
Question from a student:
I like automating stuff w programming.
For example some of my projects are:
- a script that takes Reddit posts, reads them w TTS, and posts it to YouTube
- a script that downloads a YouTube video and then posts it on tiktok
- a script that automates some of the internship application process
- a script that sends my boss a “good morning” message through slack every morning
Is there a job field with work like this? Like automating the combination of different technologies? I’ve been looking forever but I haven’t really found anything related. Thanks!4
I’ve been trying to work smarter and not harder.
I’ve been applying to internships with my cover letter and resume.
My cover letter is pretty generic so I only need to change the company name and company position for each application.
Used to do this all manually through google docs but I just wrote a cool script
Using bash, I ask for the company name and position, and then I just generate and compile a latex version of my cover letter with those parameters updated.
Then, the pdf of my cover letter is combined with the pdf of my resume.
After that, the pdf of my application goes into a directory in my career folder so I have a record of it.
This has saved me so much time lol I’m happy I took the time to figure this out2
Applying to more internships today and found this:
Position: full stack blockchain engineer intern
- 7+ years of experience in software development
- 2+ years experience developing smart contracts
- 5+ years professional experience in Java, Go, Node.js
Wtf is this? What intern has 5+ years of professional software development?
Why even label the posting as an intern when u want someone with years of experience?
Stupid fucking shit I swear12
Recently I’ve been super interested in learning more about blockchain and ethereum.
Anybody got any good beginner resources or projects? I like doing projects w new technologies bc I learn a lot better by doing. Thanks!
I’m trying to deploy my front end web app (my personal website) to GitHub pages.
In my app, I used react environment variables to store a api key I need in my app.
When I deploy my app with GitHub pages, will the app still be able to access the react env variables?
Let me know if that doesn’t make sense. Thanks!7
Been using something called AppleScript for a side project lately (I use OSX )
It’s a scripting/automation language exclusively for apple products
I’ve been using it to automate some tasks on a website
I need to press a html button as my last task
I try to select the html button and use “.click()”
I select the html button and simulate mouse down and up
I use every combination of classmate, id, css selector
I look it for the documentation online
It looks like it’s from 2005
Stackoverflow save me please6
Applying to internships today and I see this
Job type: Internship
- Atleast 2 years of professional experience as a software engineer
Wtf is this????
Why does an intern need 2 years of professional experience?
Isn’t an intern supposed to be an entry level job?
Am I wrong in thinking this is crazy?9
