A quick question regarding backend and serverless backed.
I'm using Node with Express and I've found that it's great when it comes to setting it up both locally and in the cloud (server and serverless). My problem is with that loose typing nonsense that I often have to enforce to types anyway. Also, I'd love to expand my toolbelt a little, so here's the question:
Do I learn some new technology like Ruby/Go/Php etc. (some of which I briefly used before) or do I learn TypeScript?
Opinionated answers welcome.3
AWS Free Tier.
Has anyone got dome knowledge as to why is that even a thing? We can run hundres of thousands free lambda executions and a bunch of other things. I really wanna know what's the business model behind it and how is it beneficial for amazon to provide their services free of charge for so many.
@dfox :( But it wasn't unsolicited... i think the filter caught it due to the address being there. What do I do about it?1
Paraview - a volume visualisation software. Not open source, but free!
That's great right? Well, fuck no. It's running everything on one core. The error messages are literally exceptions thrown to the screen. Shit keeps crashing with no error messages anyway. Instead of rendering the animation in 1 minute on the GPU or at least in 10 minutes on the CPU, I spend hours upon hours waiting for that one thread running at 70% to finish, and hope it won't crash.
So yeah, I would genuinely pay for the software that works and does the job than deal with all this nonsense...
Dear (Paraview) devs, do your work properly and price it appropriately, or don't do it at all.2
Build a prototype of an app that helps doctors monitor their patients and lets patients learn more about their conditions.
Sold it to 2 healthcare clinics!8
"Marks will be deducted for each part of code that violates the conventions."
Long story short, one of my lecturers created his own coding conventions and gave us courseworks to abide by them. Objectively? They're outdated and shit.
I guess "marks will be deducted", cause I'm not trimming my code to 60 chars... 🤷🏻♂️11
What's everyone opinion on the "decent" graduate salary?
That is both for experienced programmer (3 years on the job) and newbie (straight outta uni). Asking from UK, but any answer's welcome!5
Feature idea for DevRant.
How about instead of assuming that people use GitHub we let them choose from GitHub/Gitlab/whatever_else_there_is in the profile?
Not sure where to put it but there's definitely someone who'll point it out in the comment...12
When starting on the programming field, I never knew how to do anything.
Just that it CAN be done SOMEHOW.
Got from Jr. Software Engineer to DevOps Manager in 3 years using this philosophy and spending endless nights learning.
Most risky, but oh so rewarding 👌5
