I had to optimize a SQL-Query and i was able to cut the amount of time in half.
The business part of the company said it is still too slow, so i researched deeper and looked into the called functions which are used in every part where to claculate value X.
Found 20 similiar selects to get values which are summed up afterwards into three different variables. Thought this can be done in three selects with "sum", but then i found the dumbest thing is this function:
V1, V2 have the values from the selects
V3 is ja given value
X is the return value
the function returns another value
help = functionCall(parameter) - V1 -V2
X= help + V1 + V2 +V3
WTF im mean it does the selects for nothing...
X = functionCall(parameter) + V3
I'm a developer in germany and of course, everyone in this company has a keyboard with the QWERTZ layout, which ( you all know ) sucks especially when using it do write code.
So i asked my boss, if i can get a keyboard in QWERTY layout, because of the given reasons.
He replied nicely: Yes, I will ask the hardware management.
5 minutes later i got a mail: Here is your harware order, you will get it soon.
It's not much, but that was fast and nice :)
Have a good day everybody.31
A College Friend of mine has offered last year a free C++ course for everyone who is interested, this year he is doing the same in Rust. This guy can explain and gives a big part of his freetime for this.
He is just amazing.
Thanks to everyone who shares his/her knowledge!4
My Task: Create a new application in a custom C#-Framework, to replace screens from the old application.
The old application has a Java Frontend.
The old application has an Oracle-DB.
The old application has its logic fully on the DB.
You cannot connect to the DB via ODBC.
Me:But why ???
You cannot use external libraries, just our framework.
Me: For what are you thinking i can use to call the functions on the DB
You have to use a custom connection-bus which uses JDBC
This connection-bus cannot call SQL Statements and return the result.
Me:WTF, how should i get the data out of the Database ?
We don't know find a way.
Me:Ahh fuck off.3
