I am coming from Java and now I am doing some work on Node project and I am loosing my mind.
Everything is an object but you have no idea what are his properties. There are call back, async, sync and mix. I don't even want to try debugging. There is no classes only object and a lot of functions everywhere.
The whole story with Node versions and playing with NVM. Don't even let me talk about Node modules.
Frustration and long development.15
For some project, I wrote this algoritem in Java to parse a lot of XML files and save data to database. It needs to have some tricks and optimisations to run in acceptable time. I did it and in average, it run for 8-10 minutes.
After I left company they got new guy. And he didn't know Java so they switched to PHP and rewrote the whole project. He did algorithm his way. After rewrite it run around 8 hours.
I was really proud of myself and shocked they consider it acceptable.4
We got new dev leader. He has zero experiences in our field of working but he thinks, he knows everything.
He suppose to manage our work and plan development, but he is just changing our functionalities. When you try to explain to him, this wouldn't work, he just doesn't listen and try to convince you his way is better.
He also hire one of his friend. And now he is hiding him from me, because his friend is working on the same thing as I do. No idea why, but we could work together.
I am so sick of his shit that I started to look for a new job. I can't stand such an egoistic person.2
I ordered new computer by separate parts so I will have what I want. Choose to not be delivered by mail but pick it up by myself, so it will be faster. Boy I was wrong.
First of all one part was not available so I have to wait one week longer. Then after a week they say I can pick it up. But I was on vacation.
Finally I was back so I went pick it up. Came there and they said they can't find one part. It supposed to be there but they can't find it right now.
So now I am still waiting.4
We were in a college group. Five people. Making project in PHP. Some forced us to use cakePHP framework than left. One guy decided to not participate and decited to do it next year. One guy didn't know PHP at all. The two of us have to do all the work for five people.
On the presentation day we have ten minutes to do it. Guy without PHP knowledge forget password for our app, make three wrong guesses and locked us out of our app for five minutes.2
Why? Because I have so much to choose from. And I love half finished projects.
A lot of coke! I meant Coca Cola, not not cocaine. But sometimes I got feeling, it will help more.8
It was one cold winter night, lonely and sad, until my mom's coworker brought to our house an old computer from their company.
It was like heaven come down to earth, when he assembly all parts together.
I was filled with joy and excitement, until I saw Windows start screen.
Worst day of my life. Linux for life!
Sorry devRant app, but number of notifications on android is too high!
Way too high!
It is realy unnecessary to show all who also make comment on rant.6
System architect make feature to print password, when you create new client. It was architecture for backend server. Just why and how?!5
We spend two days changing system arhitecture. Then they come to the conclusion it will stay the same, because is too complex. And I still have no idea how to make all that to work.
We had application for appointments with cashier for invoices. Made some changes. Didn't test it. Clients couldn't issued invoices for half a day, were super pissed.
Boss was realy angry, tought I will be fired.
I got our climbing club web page to maintain. It was written in PHP by our older member. So I learned programming and slowly added new features.2
My first job as a student was at the institute. I was working realy hard. Doing my best. Closing issues lika a boss. All my code was reviewed by senior.
Two other student has this simple program to make (gui for some functions and some graphs). They have no idea how to make it. Their code was worst than spageti and in four mounths then didn't even come close to the end. Noone even looked at theri code.
We were paid the same money!1
In the middleschool we have teacher who wasn't very skilled. We were learning about copying files, creating folders, writing in word...
So me and my frend were bored and do other stuff, talk loud and joking.
Teacher than got angry at us and want to punish as. So he made us show, how to creat new folder in explorer. Thinking we would know.
Me and my frend did it in sec. He just stood there in silence and didn't know what to do. We continue to do other stuff.
At my previous job I was working with cliets as a support for our application. One client had problem printing invoice so they caled. Was web application so invoice was first converted to PDF then you would print it.
I ask client if they have Abobe Reader installed. Her response was some thing like that: " I don't know what are you saying. Its is like you are talking chines."
I asked for remote access, fix problem.
Still don't know how they managed to use application.
I made internet radio player with raspberry pi. It uses IR remote controler and also play music from my collection. Pi is really usefull device. So happy.2
When somebody doesn't squash their commits. And I have to look at commit with that line they deleted. So annoying!
