I asked my teacher if i would be allowed to use lists in final exam. (If you read my last rants about him you'll know he has a fetish with arrays) He allowed it! I'm feeling so relieved!
(He changed his mind more than once for the last few weeks, but this time he made a clear decision and he will stick with it. He even promised it.)
No more fear now, I know I can do that 😁
Tldr; its a long introduction
I've been on this app for quite a while now. As a shy cat watching from a distance and reading all kinds of rants. Anywho I feel comfortable enough to crawl out of my shell and introduce myself. Since I feel you guys together made such a pleasant and safe community, I'm really happy to be a part of it!
Anyway I'm Sam, 24 year old, from the Netherlands. My favorite color is green. Mostly the green you can find in nature. The one that calms you down:). I'm a very introverted person but always very curious and eager to learn new things.
I started to program when I was 12. I did assembly and C++. Because I liked making cheats for online games. Later I learned about C#, Java and Python. Mostly used it for web stuff, scraping, services etc. But also chatbots (for Skype for example).
Currently I'm 2 years in as a data scientist, mostly working in Python.
But on the side as a hobby and with an ambition I have a basic understanding of full stack development.
Mostly Nodejs, express, mongo, and frontend, no frameworks.
(I will later ask you guys some more questions about that! I could really use some advice!)
Anyway enough about me! Tell a bit about yourselves! Happy to get to know you all a little better!16
Thank you GDPR, even though I am not an EU citizen, now I know what services have I provided my e-mail address.8
Finally removed elementary OS. (Random crashed and everything) and installed Ubuntu 18.04. It looks great.27
Recently I've had another meeting with someone nontechnical (hooray -.-)... They did however realize that - as my home has Raspberry Pi's and Arduino's etc scattered all over the place - I am elbows deep into computer science.
At some point, the topic got to my hobby - building electronics, deploying and administering systems and things like that.
Now here's the fun part: he was so concerned about my well-being that he asked me "Well why don't you get in touch with the people in your town? Why don't you do something else?"
At the time I was up for over 20 hours already so I couldn't really form any other response to him other than a slight smile and the mention of "That's what they all ask". But that was just so rude, I had to get this off my chest...
Imagine that instead of computer science I would've been into music, playing the guitar or something like that. And I got into it so much that I couldn't help but want to learn how to create better music, music that is a delight to listen to. To understand and feel the instrument that I'm playing, and get the most out of it. Would you ask to "just do something else" to someone like that?
I mean, I get that these people aren't interested in technology. I get that they try to avoid the topic because it's too technical to them. But to actively tell them that they may want to "do something else", that's just so disrespectful. How would you feel if I told you that instead of management of your shitty nonprofit organization, you should do something else? Because I just don't care about what you do?
Fuck these people.33

Second big school project. Designed for at least 2 people. Quite a lot of work for the given time but not impossible to do, as I thought. Oh boy was I wrong.
My partner and I chose a networking project which included setting up a ESXi-Server, a VM (with Windows Server 2008 R2) and a router. We are both not unknowledged so I thought this would be easy-going.
I quickly recognised that my partner liked to spend his time at home rather than actually doing something so I ended up doing nearly everything.
When it came to documenting everything he tried to write something, but it had so many mistakes i had to correct it over and over again.
I asked him multiple times, if we should split and he denied every time and promised to work harder.
End of that story was him being expelled from school because of to many missed lessons and me finishing the project alone. Got a B+ for it.1
Wtf, my phone decided to randomly change the dates of my pictures o.O
Those are pictures taken like 2 years ago!
My girlfriend is on phone, now over 3 hours complaining something about her friend, she doesn't suspect she is talking to my Google Assistant. Looks like my Google Assistant is doing pretty good.
Getting married to a female dev sounds cool, until she starts setting up a trello board for house tasks.🙅25
I hate the attitude of some (thankfully not most!) people on this plattform.
Why do they feel a need to provocate with every single comment? Why are they judging young devs exploring their first experiences? Sometimes even belittling their achievements. This makes me so angry and sad.
This shouldn't be a competitive community. We are all devs here.9
People who just mention the fucking delivery service when writing product reviews should be shot in the head right on the spot, just in order to keep the human gene pool a little bit cleaner.
Today, I learned the shortest command which will determine if a ping from your machine can reach the Internet:
This parses as 126.96.36.199, which thanks to Cloudflare, is now the IP address of an Internet-facing machine which responds to ICMP pings.
Oh, you can also use this trick to parse 10.0.0.x from `10.x` or 127.0.0.1 from `127.1`. It's just like IPv6's :: notation, except less explicit.12
Do you guys have a idea how I can call my new snippet manager application? The application allows you to save code and URLs to view Inside of the application. Also the application is highly customizable supporting 42 coding Languages and over 42 Themes. Currently its named: "SNIPR". But i would like a Name thats not directly connected to the application and what it does. Maybe you guys have some ideas? Because im not that creative😀😀👌
This is a example of the main ui using the dark theme30
THIS IS IT, I FOUND THE WORST!
IT CAN'T GET ANY WORSE THAN THIS, I HOPE.
LOOK AT WHAT THIS IDIOT HAS DONE:
VISUALLY ALIGN CODE!!!!!!
Note: I removed a multi line comment commenting out this code, for syntax highlighting in the screenshot, but everything is untouched.34
Custom CSS? Who am I kidding, I'm a backend/security/server guy.
Fuck this shit, bootstrap, here I come!22
(Q: How much are you allowed to Google as a developer?)
“You’re allowed to Google as much as you want. This is not school, you’re employed to solve a problem. Nobody cares whether you Google for the answer or remember the answer from another Googling.”12
Testing the waters of how much devRant I can read while still remaining humble and open-minded... just kidding, y'all are cool :^)4
I just started re-doing my entire setup because I finally want to build my true dream setup 😍
Gonna pick up two monitors with monitor arms tomorrow and searching for a network switch as we speak.
TFW someone tells you that you're not a "real frontend developer" and then repeatedly asks for CSS help... 😒3
Thanks DevRant for being my DevDuck...
Was typing a rant when I started to realise the issue that caused me to write the rant :^)1
"Engineers don't memorize documentation. They know how to use it."
Programming felt insurmountable to me before I started with it. This phrase blew my mind and changed my approach entirely.3
Saw a car of a female print- and webdesigner from a nearby town today.
I left my business card just for fun on the window.
Let's see if something happens. Would be fun to get to know someone from here who doesn't make shitty table layouts.
Also bought a new bag, so I leave a picture of it here.8
Because you gotta, try/catch them all
Haha. No laughs? Okay
*curls into a ball7
So I was writing this code whole day and then all of a sudden my gf hugs me from the back gets down and starts blowing me! What the fuck? I told her bitch wait and let me finish with this code, i have a fat bug in here and i cant seem to figure it out where it is hiding. But she didnt listen. She continued sucking. So then I tried using a debugger to speed things up a bit but she took my clothes off and sat on top of me and started riding me like crazy. I was like ayyy what the fuck is wrong with you i cant debug my fucking program like this but she doesnt listen. Fucking annoying and this happens way too often.
Anyway how are you doing today?2
