Me and my team is facing a weird issue. The sales head is saying
"Sale is not happening because Tech is not working"
And our product is a door to door selling product.
We come up with a solution to let us sell the product and sales guy will handle the software development.
The response was "Its not our job". Its make me angry that people do know to poke in other people businesses but don't want to take responsibility.
One of the key person is asking every junior and senior person to build some program for her so she can automate those task.
Well everyone is just ignoring her. She never asked me. Which was kind of insulting for me and now I am thinking I should make that program and send her mail to buy it.3
In my whole carrier as developer. I never felt so helpless as in naming things.
Could be class, method, file name. The worst thing is it become hard as the code base increase.
How you overcome this?8
Smart Phones are getting smarter. Now you get push notification when you want to check time.
and this featured is called "shove it to throat"
In horror movies. Characters do things that they them-self know it could kill them. Like getting in basement.
As a developer we all know to never deploy code on Friday. Here we are taking the wrong turn.3
Any senior dev who get less paid in terms of his juniors or am I the only one?
If anyone who is in same shoes like me please suggest how to cope with the feeling of unrest and feel less miserable.6
One of my friend is wanted to build his site. Like other extra smart customer he did his share of research.
With half an hour of explaining why I am charging more than other. He said okay, and said he will be at my place tomorrow.
He: so I can watch you?
That single demand of his, made me pissed off. I wanted to punch him for that but anyway suggested him,
he should look for other vendor.2
Every new joiney in a team is like a person entering in room from bright sunlight.
They keep on suggesting until their pupil get dilated and they see the creature they have to work on.
Half elephant, parts horse and parts bear suppose to do work of T-Rex.2
I think this guy deserve to be place here.
Translation for kids part
" I will complain to dad about you then you will get punished"1
I made this site which is nice. Its a nice project plus I made this for my own. So I decided to book a domain for it.
Turns out every possible name is booked and it started pissing me off. I mean how positive people are for startups.
They made this a real-state business. Saw land acquire it. You never know which one will be next facebook ha!
Then I hit git.com which was parked too. I thought god bless you and your money.2
Do you know why PHP will survive? Here is my observation.
Most of my clients who wants helps have their sites either on Wordpress or Magento or other free PHP cms.
The background is, they install the whole site all by them self and by the end of month, the Wordpress dashboard is loaded with massive plugins and yellow / red warning messages.
Same case with Magento and other CMS alike.
There site get heavy and they realized that they are in deep shit.
Just like some people take medicine all by them-self or by doing google. Until things gets into serious trouble.
and so the conclusion php will survive.
love to hear opinions on that.8
I am the new guy in the company and there are seniors over my head.
I am not used to work under seniors , in my previous job I had the full controls. I was the decision maker, I use to decide what happen with code.
Now, in this new company, I don't have much thing to explore. They just give me some bugs to resolve or some small feature. Nothing complex. I was stripped of my power which I did not like.
So, I started questioning my decision to join them. Then on weekend off I checked the story board.
Senior where working on Saturday. I felt bad and thought may be its my time to sit back and live my life which I was missing from past 6 years because of this profession.
Because of this job I became alcoholic, got high BP, lower platelets. I am starting to have seizure as withdrawal symptoms but it's okay. I had eye problems which made my life hell and life boring as everything looks blurry and boring.
With this job I got the time to think about glasses and it is after that long time I saw that moon with so clarity. It was beautiful, I sat in my balcony's watching the moon for long time.
I felt the moon is saying it's okay rediscover your self, I will take care of other things.
With this thought I learned to drive car and now I am going to join gym. I always wanted those abs. The freedom felt good I am overwhelmed.
1. My senior told me that my code is crashing.
2. I check the code and told him that it is not my doing. As there was lots of nested if-else as I prefer to keep a variable and update it in if conditions. Like a filters rather than trees with branches. What I say, I knew my coding style.
3. Then he show me my git commit and I am having existential crises.
Am I missing days? How can I? I mean was I abducted and in mean time some alien took my place and they placed this memory of me coding?
Ah! man I think I am possessed by some inexperienced developer. I seriously need some fucked up crash to exorcise him.3
Okay this is 3.30 AM . Just woke up from bad geeky dreams. My heart is pounding so fast that I could nose bleed and I can't sleep as I am remembering I had the same dream last night.
Dream was about : me being astronaut. Everything was usual. From rocket launch to be in space. Scary part was my ship in orbit of moon.
Seeing dead land from that height chocked me. Imagine you are looking out of the window and all you see a big grey land and pitch black in background. Realising there is no one out there was spooky.
The scary part was I launched some satellite but crash on surface. It was scary seeing something going smaller every time. Crashing on deserted land was one plus on adding fear.
Then my ship leave the orbit (from the reverse shock of that satellite dittachment ) and it flow away in the vastness of space......
Away from the moon and away from the earth in long loneliness.
I wish I could erase this from my memory but I am not gonna watch space exploration video anymore.
I got to say, landing on moon is one thing but being out there knowing one accident and you will be forever there. You need balls to be on such missions.4
So, I was just wondering what if someone hack DevRant?
Then I thought who would even dare to rob a bar where robbers use to visit after every heist.
My previous boss has bad habit of relieving employees. He find out his links in a employee
s new company and then god knows what he did with that.
For, that reason I did not mention my current company when I switch but today I tried to find out those people who left before me it was shocking that no one updated their current company.
Creepiness of the former boss was real. Everyone was scared.
when you receive promotional messages from your old company.
and feeling hits
"So, this is what we are now..."4
with all of this experience and working with so many different people I learned.
No, matter where you switch, everything is same the only thing matter in the end is whether you get coffee served on your table or you have to make it yourself.
Sometime I feel, god forget to write proper toggle command for me.
For others it is random, for me it is static. One sad life. Only hope is system run out of memory because it is recursion with no ending.
here is the dev-rant
After fucking with Laravel Passport for 3 days, I finally manage to find a way to do multi auth.
Yeah! dude I am the guy who is going to write a tutorial for that. So, you must -- this rant.1
Doing coding from past 5 years.
Everyone treat me like regular working family member.
and then one day Dad stuck on some .gov site filling form.
He was not able to use backspace as developer forget to allow
backspace. So, I open console type the basic
document.getElementById().value = "";
Now, I am getting respect as a doctor get =_=4
From morning to afternoon, finally installed Nginx, Postgre, and phpPgAdmin.
my head is like, I have smoked some third class weed.
I am done for today.
Last day in the office. I started remembering good old memories. Felt nostalgic and doubted my new job as they were not giving rise as per my expectation.
Then, my manager comes up with his divine improvement in the good working site (not for me but for other dev).
I felt sorry for my fellow mates and started praising my new job.1
Just reached my office.
Roads were flooded so, I pull my motorbike to other lane and drive while traffic coming from another side.
Felt like fast and furious. Now, I am smiling like Budha and my co-worker giving me strange looks, like I got enlightenment.1
I created a tool where you just click a button and it records your in time and keeps in the local storage of a browser.
It gives you remaining time in office plus when will be your half day or short day based on your in-time. Whenever you visit in a whole day.
For motivation, I mention the remaining time in office like. Ex. "10 minutes more in the office or 1 more hour".
I shared this with one or two of my colleagues and within in a week, I saw it open in every sales, HR and IT departments systems.
That day I get the taste of true entrepreneurship.
