Old old organization makes me feel like I'm stuck in my career. I'm hanging out with boomer programmers when I'm not even 30.
I wouldn't call myself an exceptional programmer. But the way the organization does it's software development makes me cringe sometimes.
1. They use a ready made solution for the main system, which was coded in PL/SQL. The system isn't mobile friendly, looks like crap and cannot be updated via vendor (that you need to pay for anyway) because of so many code customizations being done to it over the years. The only way to update it is to code it yourself, making the paid solutions useless
2. Adding CloudFlare in the middle of everything without knowing how to use it. Resulting in some countries/networks not being able to access systems that are otherwise fine
3. When devs are asked to separate frontend and backend for in house systems, they have no clue about what are those and why should we do it (most are used to PHP spaghetti where everything is in php&html)
4. Too dependent on RDBMS that slows down development time due to having to design ERD and relationships that are often changed when users ask for process revisions anyway
5. Users directly contact programmers, including their personal whatsapp to ask for help/report errors that aren't even errors. They didn't read user guides
6. I have to become programmer-sysadm-helpdesk-product owner kind of thing. And blamed directly when theres one thing wrong (excuse me for getting one thing wrong, I have to do 4 kind of works at one time)
7. Overtime is sort of expected. It is in the culture
If you asked me if these were normal 4 years ago I would say no. But I'm so used to it to the point where this becomes kinda normal. Jack of all trades, master of none, just a young programmer acting like I was born in the era of PASCAL and COBOL9
Hey. I'm still very new to CloudFlare and I have a question.
Let's say that I have 4 sub domains: a.test.com, b.test.com, c.test.com, d.test.com. They're all under the same domain (test.com).
I have a page rule setup specifically for a.test.com, where "Disable security" is set to On. I did this as a temporary solution so that I can figure out the problems that a.test.com has when the security is enabled (had users complaints regarding not being able to send requests with CF security On), so that it is still accessible while I try to fix it..
By turning disabling security for a.test.com, do I put others (b, c, d) at risk? I had someone telling me that it is possible for attackers to make use of a.test.con (unprotected by CF) in order to attack the other sub-domains. "a.test.com has no protection so attackers can use it to send requests to other secured subdomains, cross-site attack" or something along that line.
I don't get this. I thought page rule is supposed to be active only for the domain where it's being set up and the rest will still be secured, and that if attacker manages to attack the other subdomain its due to the others not having secure applications inside of it.
Dunno if that person was telling the truth or tried to mess around with me with their joke!
Fucking fuck fuck fuck outdated superiors that know jack shit about how software development works. Dnt even know about git, docker, cloud services. Everything is done on premise with network that is fucking crap and when an app is down "hey why is it down?" ask the fucking server and network admin how the fuck am i supossed to know? i have to create workaround codes when other devs just need to deploy their app and its fucking running as it should be. why the fuck do i need to spend my time debugging Ping timeouts? im a fucking dev. I have done designs, analyze requirements, build frontend, backend, optimize codes, paying attention to security and now i have to fix network problems as well? fuck off
Create Innovation my fucking arse. you just Keep saying that but then wondering "what is this new thing youre trying? its new and different why do that?" because you asked for innovation you fuck. If i copied some other concept its not innovation is it pricks.
Fuck them and all the brown nosers as well.1
I feel like i have changed after years of working as a dev.
Granted i have only worked at one place. But still, back in university i swear i could just code all night. Finishing a project to submit by the end of week out of joy. There wasnt even money as a reward, only a good grade which matters very little.
Now i can barely get up in the morning. Man, growing up sucks. Or maybe im at the wrong place. Idk. Too tired to even think of it.1
Asking for your opinions/experience regarding this
I have a program which send payload to fcm api to push notifs. But sometimes it gets timedout at a random interval.
Someone says the server is too far from us (SE asia to US <google>). And that we should move our codes to AWS (when we already have a huge ass on premise server). Am I an idiot for being skeptical at this?
I mean i could play games on US server just fine and here we are debating about 100KB json payload that cannot be sent to a US server due to 'distance'. Dunno what the cause for timeout but it gets ridicilous now.. I dont have the patience for this4
