On Windows: Use Tools and scripts to stop/uninstall/deactivate functionality so that the OS becomes useful for me.

Do some of you know the LPI-Certs? Are those certs which have some reputation?
Or are there „better“ ones?1
Question about Game Development:
I want to create myself a boardgame (Dog aka Tock aka Tuck). It should run on a Android Tablet.
What suggestions do you have?
- Is there some good framework for a native App?
- Should I create a WebApp, if that's the thing nowadays?19
My sister want‘s to buy a „new 3DS XL“.
Do you think, that‘s a good idea, does it have a future?
Or will it be ‚replaced‘ by the Switch?2
Hey devRanters. Which position are you guys using for your workplace?
I'm sitting a lot of the time, but move a bit around in the chair. Every 30-45 mins I stand up an walk a bit.6
Everybody's waiting for the new iPhones.
And I'm like: Hmm ... the iPhone SE is now cheaper 🤔 *places order*3
I resigned from my job, and now there are 6 weeks left at my old desk, until I can leave and jump into a new world.
Now, I have done all points on my checklist/todo-list and I'am now surfing the web all day long.
Any suggestions for websites to learn something / interessting reads?5
Facebook made my day: "Your email and resume say Unix-like systems, which is not exactly Unix."
Coworker: "Look our WebApp loads much faster in Chrome (0.8s) than in Firefox (4.6s). This clearly shows that Chrome has the better JS-Engine"
Me internally: "No, it just shows how bad your JS-Code is, and not optimized, you dense Mo**Fu**"6
Question about work experience.
Here in Switzerland you have 4 years of apprenticeship. (School + work, 50/50)
After that most uf us go to a higher degree (BSc oder MSc). Both can be taken part-time. Again about 50/50 school + work.
Now: Do you count thoses years as 8 or 4 or 0 work experience?3
the only thing that held me in my current job was my boss. verry supportive and helpful type. best boss so far.
but now he just quit 😑
guess who looks for a job ...
Don't know if Kotlin is actually a lang for the future or again some hipe-shit.
Tried some tutorials, and I reeeaaally liked it.
Starts a new project in school with a colleague. Write some code, a lot of code, just to find out, that he "optimized" my code and now all of my code looks completly different but does the same thing wiht same performance.
Colleague: The code is now better
My Face: 😫
Hey devRanters, how do you charge your phone?
1) Let ist almost drop to about 1-5%, and then let it charge fully up over night, and keep it plugged in till morning.
2) Just let it drop about 10-20% and charge it immediately up, and unplug it, when it reaches full charge16
Java with it's new DriverManager, but I'm still sitting here and using Class.forName() 'cause the new fancy DriverManger can not fu***ng find the damn driver! 😡😠🤷4
So there's that project with my coworker. We splitt up the classes, 10 to be implemented by him, 10 by me.
Fast Forward to 4 weeks before deploy.
Coworker: Your stuff logs a lot of stuff. It's not very clear and a liiittle to verbouse. 5 entries per second? Too much!
Me: Okay, you're right. Let me fix that.
2 Days later I look at his logs at runtime. He logs EVRY SQL statement and their results! In a batch that processes a 10'000 of customers!
He points out: That's useful stuff and it's not that much. It's needed for debuging.
My face: 😦4
Today I looked at some code from our CTO. He used plain SQL Statements with huge selects and no prepared statements.
I asked him:
1. why dont you build some helpers or even use some frameworks?
2. why are there no prepared statements?
His answer (to both questions)
We do not need that. That just uses too much ressources and time. It's more cleaner and simpler this way.
My Face: 😵1
