Not sure what triggers me more:
a) the fact that nowadays no one can type/spell without auto-correct
b) that this passed code review
c) that no one corrected it in 12 months since it's been committed23
C'mon CBA, get it together. If today is Friday and something happened on Thursday (AKA yesterday) that's "1 day ago". It is known!7
Fuck you Tony Abbott and fuck your "Liberal" party of profit-mongers!!!
First they crippled the NBN. Then they blew out its budget. Now they are leveraging its monopolistic power.
Step 1: Build a single national broadband network 👷♂️
Step 2: Legislate everyone switches to it and phase out every other infrastructure (ADSL) i.e. establish monopoly by design 👑
Step 3: Profit 💸💸💸
On the morning of my 4th day at the new job I woke up with that feeling in my stomach "I fucking don't want to go to work anymore".
it took 3 days. Must be my personal best.
"Potimized imports and remopved temp code"
Can't help but wonder what's the code quality like from an author of such a carefully written commit message 🤔4
I just got asked by a colleague why do I use different levels of a logger. He said he's been writing code for 10+ years and never needed anything other than Logger.debug() 🤦♂️
Where the fuck these guys get their degrees? 😒22
To fix a bug I added a few log messages to trace what gets executed and in what order (very new to the project). Fixed the bug, pushed PR and the only comment was to remove the log files. 🤦♂️🤦♂️
Please tell me this is normal or should I start looking for a new place that hires "only the best" 😭10
From interviewee's point of view, how does doing HackerRank challenges for 3h sound to you as the 1st step of the process?
Too early? Should it even be in the process?6
Two weeks into our fresh new Android app my colleague decided to define 1dp dimension unit in dimens.xml:
During my code review I asked him if there was no better name for it as it's simply overstating the obvious and does not scale well for other resolutions. He didn't understand what I meant so I said would you then define this for xxdpi
<dimen name="dimen_1dp">4dp</dimen> just because you need more padding on higher density screens?
Then he goes on for 10 minutes how he thought about other names (doesn't say which ones) and still decided to stick with this one.
I politely heard him out and made it abundantly clear that I disagree with that naming (not the value). And I also backed up my point by saying that what he did is exactly the same as defining a color in colors.xml like this:
Then he frowned and said (paraphrasing): Noooooooo, that is so wrong. I would never do that. It's not the same as what I have done.
Then he again started defending his point which probably would have gone for good 10 minutes except I literally bit my tongue and walked away from my desk hoping he wouldn't follow as I was dangerously close to punching him!
So, this is apparently how you concatenate a list of Strings or should I say cities 😉 (with a delimiter between each element but excluding the last one)
I wish my esteemed colleague at least had decency to hide the fact he copied it from SO 😭
Question: what's wrong with this code❓9
Are you fucking serious! 😈😈😈
Is this what a Junior Dev nowadays needs to know to be a successful candidate?14
java - - version
Unrecognized operation: - - version
java - version
java version "1.x...."
EVERY FUCKING TIME!!!
Why Java, WHY?!?!? 😭
Every other tool uses - - version ❤️9
Android Studio 3.2b4 once again regressed on "No tests found" bug for Kotlin projects.
I guess someone at big G decided to "comment out failing tests for now and come back to it before the release"
I feel like this rant should be riddled with profanity but at this point I'm not even angry just very disappointed 😥
Before we started a new project, as a team, we set some ground rules like: frequent, small, digestible PRs.
PR#1: 52 files (week 1)
PR#2: 107 files (week 2)
JUST FUCK OFF MATE!!!2
FUCK YOUR OPEN SPACE OFFICE!!!!
AND FUCK YOUR HOT DESKING!!!
As a developer, is it too much to ask for a quiet section? 😭14
How to respond to the "How do you rank yourself in technology X on a scale from 1 - 10"?
What is 10? Why are recruiters and interviewers asking such questions?7
At the end of the sprint half of the stories didn't get done due to lack of coordination to put 4 people in the same room and get them to agree on the solution.
During Retro my Scrum Master says: Are these stories not done because we haven't estimated them during sprint planning? 😂
Explaining to my Scrum Master EVERY morning from scratch the technical details of the story so that he can give his blessing to why the story is still In Progress column!1
