Any .net specialist arround hete?
I have an .xml file like bellow
<witd:WITD application="Work item type editor" version="1.0"
. . .
One of the senior devs is saying that I should validate that xml and load the schema from this xmlns:witd="http://schemas.microsoft.com/Visual..."
BUT HOW IN THE FUCKING HELL CAN I DO THAT. I found 0 code snippets that can point me in the right direction.3
So after I had an interview for a part-time(student) position, I got an offer. The only thing I find it weird is shit pay for the thing that I have to implement. A full application with, with a nice architecture and all. Something that you would task a full time middle developer. Cheap work..2
Want to become a master at productivity? Unplug your mouse.
Also install vim shortcuts or other plugins in your browser.
How my friends work day goes, I worked at the same firm and on the same project, I dont pity him.
25% refactoring - after his pull request was denied a few times, and had to rewrite that code in question a few time. I think most people go mad
3% test writing
2% code writing
Had an skype job interview, at some point the interviewer asked me to tell a joke. I told a dead baby joke. I dont know normal jokes. I am not normal either. Dont think he enjoyed it.3
Something funny. Has anyone heard of a case or a city, where people looking for a part-time job are in bigger numbers than those who are looking for a full-time job?
The competition is stiff.
Disclaimer, am a student.
Old story, happened some way back. I worked part-time for a small web development company that did between other things something called SharePoint development, basically .net webforms with shit glitter on top of it.
The most weird part of it, was the fact that we were working on vms that hosted the app, it was our dev, test and staging environment, as well as were we showed the client the polished turd.
Did I say that it was on a vm? Well it was on a remote vm, that each of use had access to it, through our domain accounts, and they couldn't configure the windows server to accept more than two or three users at once to be connected.
That was our test enviroment and dev enviroment, sooo showing the app to the client meant for the rest of us to not write any code because it might crash or get stuck.
The app was accessible and discoverable by url and through google search from outside, I dont think that should have been allowed.
The most disastrous part was that we had NO source versioning whatsoever, just plain old copy and paste in different folders.
Deploying to client meant remoting to the clients host or whatever it was, and manually copying the source files
If someone wanted to debug the application you had to shout, and you also could hear it, in the office: "I'm debugging!" or "I'm deploying!". Because we were on the same machine, there was only one process with the server and it meant that if you debug or deployed it would block it for the others.
Should I talk about code quality? Maybe not.1
Working on a school project, a teammate created a git repo, gave us all the link, but no push access, told him about it, I gave up explaining.
I still dont have push access after half a day.
Also another team member doesnt know how to write code.
I assumed that people that got accepted in a master that has software development in the title have the basic knowledge or the background at least. Even though there is a separate master especially for that, to teach you software development.3
