After the whole Asus issue, my ThinkPad finally arrived. Finally (after about a week being held by UPS) Time to pick some stickers to put on this thing.12
Just spent two days on a isotope filtering bug with HubSpot. Finally got it working.
10 points to me 😂
So I've been really Ill the past few days, like litterly been in bed for two days, popping pills like there going out of fashion. I contact work and get the typical "get well soon" so I get a message today asking how I'm doing (still Ill), I said I'll be back Monday and ask if anything is urgent that needs to be done first thing. So I get a list:
Project A: Deadline Monday
Project B: final review Tuesday
Project C: Still waiting on feedback
So I ask any chance we can extend the deadlines by a day or so I have enough time to catch up even though I'm going to have to rush it as I've been off.
Answer.. nope there non negotiable.. oh
So they want basically three days work done in one day, given the fact I still might not be 100%. Jesus Christ 😂
Quick Edit, I wasn't told there were deadlines.14
Can't wait for this guy to arrive, were going to build some beautiful stuff together.
I had to return my Asus due to a screen defect.10
So I've been interested in game development for a while, so going to spend the day diving into C++.
Wish me luck 😂21
So as an update to my previous rant, this was the response as to why we're using webflow for a certain site that we really shouldn't be using webflow for. I know some none dev in the company are learning webflow. But if there going to push for an all webflow workflow then what's the point? I've told issues I was having in webflow but they've been brushed off. What. The. Hell.7
Company: We have a new front-end project for you to work on.
Me: Oh fantastic, send me over the designs over on Zeplin and I'll start working on it and we'll sort out the links and wording later.
Company: We want it done using Webflow.
Me: -_- hmm fine.6
Soooooo... Article 13 has been passed.
*In the voice of Darth Vader* Noooooooooooo3
So I mainly work as a front end developer but I want to look into more backend stuff, would it be worth sucking it up and learn PHP and Laravel or Node.js and use something like Adonis?6
Decisions, decisions, decisions
- Asus ZenBook
- Dell XPS
- ThinkPad X1 Carbon
Going to be programming, running Ubuntu nothing too power intensive but want the power there if need be. Plus I do love a solid build and keyboard. Thoughts?19
Small laptop recommendations? Highest 15" I'll be installing Linux and mostly be programming doing research etc so don't need anything too power intensive I'm currently looking at the star lite ultrabook / laptop. Needs are long battery life, great keyboard.11
So.. wondering what people's thoughts are on this.
So I started working for a company late last year, so far I've done four projects (one was a test), the contract and hourly rate was sorted out and all happy. However, in the three months I've worked there the terms of payment has been changed two times (both times within 30 days).
First (originally) was being paid for x amount of hours any hours over that moves on to an hourly rate.
Second change moved over to a fixed rate per month.
And currently I'm now just on an hourly rate.
The justification for the change in terms was "the current terms isn't working out for us" - as far as I'm aware no-one elses terms have changed. However the quickness of the term changes here do concern me.
Now I do have some personal issues (disability for one) as well as other issues so I don't do things faster than other other devs, however, I get the job done and I stick to deadlines (and yes the company is aware of my personal issues).
In terms of current projects I'm only doing tweaks to current projects so my hours at the moment per week are slow (I have been asked about new projects) but I've heard nothing whatsoever on start dates etc.
Just an FYI the current work done, I've had no issues whatsoever.
So I would like some thoughts on what you'll do if you were in this situation as personally I can think of two reasons but I would rather see what other people think here.7
First post, woo!
