Best tool is IntelliJ! As for the worst tool, that would be the deer saddle. I couldn’t find a deer to strap it on so i could ride it. Sigh...you have no idea how badly I wanted to be a deerboy2
"For more information, please watch the following youtube video"
Not only do I not learn well watching videos; I looked up an article so that I could READ the information and refer to it.
Your narcissistic video where you fluff your ego and pretend to be an expert does not help.4
microsoft fucking teams.
why don't you just work like you should, huh??
every fucking day it seems to be the case, that you, you ugly little retarded fuckshit, are the fucking reason that my headset disconnects from its usb dongle and needs to be re-paired.
slack works like a charm, but you..?!
Fuck you devs who don't know what 100% means. It's not symbolic and it's not the beginning of something new it's the end of a fucking progress bar and as soon as it hits 100% either tell me what the fuck your doing for the next fifteen minutes or fucking make shit work7
Best: the tool that works for the job.
Worst: the tool that doesn’t.
Example: Ruby is great for scripts and web dev, but simply doesn’t work for graphics engines.
Example: SQL is great for fetching data (etc.), but it is absolutely terrible for business logic.
Example: XSLT is great for lowering your faith and your will to live, but it is absolutely awful for literally every other purpose.23
Fuck you and your shitty updates Microsoft.
I never asked for a fucking weather app on my taskbar.
Why the actual fuck would I EVER need that shit? I have that on my phone already, same for my news, and literally everything else you try to molest me with.
Want to know why Linux is growing market share? It's because it's an OS first and not some husk that shoves content at you and screams "CONSUME ME!"
FUCK YOUR SHITTY UPDATES, AND FUCK YOUR PLATFORM OF PETTY METRIC BULLSHIT.23
How to open source 101:
1. Have GitHub repo
2. Install a stale-and-auto-close bot
3. Never respond to issues
4. Have a project so good it has no open issues
Please, do not "learn to code".
The industry is already filled with too many shitheads who think they're the next bill gates.
Most people have no business coding anything.
You might hear big tech screeching about "tech shortages" and that "we need more coders" but in reality, they're trying to flood the developer market with shit-tier coders so they can pay less wages, because they're too greedy to pay their workers a decent salary.
We don't need more coders.
You're not special.
Your bootcamp project looks like dogshit and 10,000 other people wrote the same thing only better.32
Architect of this building is so stupid. The toilet lights are triggered by movement. But they are not hanging in the toilet itself. Im wiping my ass with my flashlight on now…8
This is why I hate Windows:
For about a month now, I've been learning/working on salesforce, so my Macbook was enough for me.
Today there was a bug in something I built in iur Python backend, and since it has a dependency on windows, I booted the old guy up.
And this is what I see. For about 1.5 hours this went on.
Then it started, but system consuming 100% disk and 80+% CPU. Can't do a thing.
And when zoom finally opened (for a quick meet), the camera turned on halfway down the meeting, and then the system restarted on it's own.
Old man showing that same screen again for more than 30 minutes.
Since I have dual boot on this one, I hard-shutdown it using power button, and now boot into ubuntu 20. This works so beautifully (although it froze for about 5 seconds before popping up the updates panel, something I CHOSE to keep enabled). I try going back to Windows, and it's hell again.
Here I am now trying to set up a ec2 instance and setup the app source there so that I can debug with RDP.
And yeah, Component Object Model is a motherfucking bitch. Person who invented it should die. People who build apps leveraging this should die. Business leaders who say "Hey this app (built with COM) can solve the problem easily, so use this" should die choking on their own phallus. And developers like me who keep using this because "the last guy did this" should die too.
Microsoft and it's products are the death of sane people.
Fucking Gates. Its the same damn hardware.14
More from my big black book of ai and neuroscience:
I think if trace theory is true to any degree it would go some distance in explaining phenomenal consciousness, assuming I haven't misunderstood anything.
In fuzzy trace theory (FTT) it is posited that people form two types of mental representations about a past event:
*verbatim traces: detailed representations of a past event.
*gist traces: fuzzy representations of a past event.
People can reason with verbatim *and* gist traces but prefer gists.
*vision was suggested to work similarly in 1999. With human vision, two processes could be used: one that aggregates local receptive fields and one that parses the local receptive spatial field. It was suggested that people used prior experience, gists, to decide which dominates a perceptual decision.
Gist processes form representations of events, semantic details, where verbatim reinstates the context found in the surface details of an event.
Parallel storage: asserts encoding/storage of verbatim/gist traces operate in *parallel*, not in serial.
I like to think of verbatim traces as databases, and gists as queries constructed by recognition.
Several studies have found that the meaning (gist) of an item is encoded even *before* the surface details (verbatim).
This might be important as a survival mechanism but should not be taken to mean strictly that gists are formed wholly *without* details or important and recognizable features of the item in question. It may well be for high level el processing and classification efficiency this may be an important reprocessing step, in the same way that many functions of the brain are duplicated throughout.2
git commit message that I hate:
3. "Fix Bug"
4. "I commit it but there are bug in this code"
5. "Client request"
YOU KNOW BE MORE SPECIFIC ON YOUR COMMIT MESSAGE!!!11
Big tech hates Apple for introducing Anti-Tracking features into IOS14.5,
But...... this isn't what I expected to fall through after that happened.
Google is introducing a similar feature into Android 12 😱
User: Apps crash, UX is shit, Customisation is shit, services take huge memory, BSOD....
Microsoft: We hear you. Here's some new icons. Next year you'll get rounded corners on windows.
As I started learning React, I found the allure of declarative style of programming appealing. I try to avoid maintaining multiple state variables for data that can be derived from the base state itself that's stored in the redux store. It works wonders when I have to change something; as I just need to make changes to one function in the utils folder and that change is implemented across the whole app, rather than change the instances everywhere as was the case when I initially started working on this project after the previous dev left.
But I see myself redefining a lot of computed values everywhere, and if I just try to define them in the root component, I'll end up with a huge list of props being passed to a couple of components. Shifting it to the utils folder helps a bit, but then I find myself defining even the simplest of array filtering methods to the utils folder.
Is this need to define computed values everywhere a trade-off that you need to accept when you write declarative code, or is there a workaround/solution I am missing? As of now, the code-base is much better than how it used to be when they had a literal Java dev work on React with their knowledge of Java patterns being used in a framework that is the polar opposite of OOP, but I still feel like there's room for improvement in this duplication of computed values.2
That the most important thing in any project is to first make sure YOU have understood what the customer/management wants and that THEY have understood what you are going to do.
Seen so many projects (other people's and my own) go down the drain because people had false expectations.
Also, good management is enormously important for any medium-sized endeavour. I cannot count how often I have seen mediocre to bad middle management screw things up, and devs pull off overnighters and 60+hours work weeks for this super-important project that then goes to the bin because "it turned out to be not so important in the end, sorry."1
Jr: I'm having a problem with my environment, can you help me?
Me: Sure! Did you switch to the latest Ubuntu LTS
so that your environment matches the rest of the dev team like you were asked to do the last 3 times?
Jr: No, I like Windows better because linux is too complicated. Can you just figure out how my environment is suppose to work and than fix what I did wrong please?
Me: No. Let me know if you ever need help with the our standard dev environment. Good luck!23
I really wonder who is that genius from API team who decided that a namespace with the name "main" is a great fucking idea...
Because of this shit I've had to resort to hacky pImpl implementation of the API.11
Here I am, a year after product launch, deleting features that delayed launch, introduced complexities, doubled the database load and made me miserable, because we figured out nobody has ever used them.1
I found this weird line in a library while debugging, though I really don't know php that well but wouldn't this condition return a boolean anyway?9
Fron the creators of "Hello", I present to you:
Please respond when you read this message
It's got the uselessness of hello, minus the courtesy and respect some people have for hello. Please just get to the fucking point!5
Trying to spend non-work time doing things other than coding. Which means picking up new hobbies. 😅
Currently trying to teach myself how to draw cartoon cats.
Today, I worked on facial expressions.14
Great news, our company's has a brand new security-first product, with an easy to use API and a beautiful web interface.
It is SQL-injection-enabled, XSS-compatible, logins are optional (if you do not provide a password, you are logged in as admin).
The json-api has custom-date formats, bools are any of "1", "0", 1, 0, false or null (but never true). Numbers are strings or numbers. Utf-8 is not supported. Most of our customers use special characters.
The web interface is using plain bootstrap, and because of XSS it is really easy to customize everything.
How the hell this product got launched is beyond me.9
