Loud obnoxious chewing.
One of our ex intern that sits directly across me, chews loudly.
Every fucking day at precisely 11am (her snack time); 1pm (her lunch time)
She's gone now. Good riddance.6
Me: Since I'm researching for <next coming project>, can I work from home today?
Boss: Pls don't. It's better that u are in office. I will be in office as well
Me: *thinking what kind of reason is this? "I will be in office as well"*
FYI This guy doesn't code; doesn't understand how applications developed by ourselves work; lastly, he has nothing to do with the project at this stage.
I hate going to office to just warm up those chairs.17
I've been offered a position at another company (Company A) at $500 more than this current company I'm in (Company B).
- Bigger local teams with more skilled developers
- Probably more learning opportunities, exposure
- Lots of OT. They don't compensate you for OT unless it's on a weekend
- They don't compensate you for loss of money should they have an OT for you. (If you've booked your movie tickets, etc. It goes down the drain.)
- Less flexibility as compared to company B.
- More flexibility (I get to travel and work for ~2 weeks (may happen once every 3 months).
- Recently they started to send me for courses after work.
- I work alone, and I'll have to deal with an overseas team
- I'm getting bored with the work I'm doing here.
- Tired from having to deal with everything alone. (I shoulder everything here)
- My bosses here do not code.
Please feel free to leave your opinions below.12
I'm currently employed as a web developer and i'm looking to start somewhere in the aspect of machine learning.
I have a question i'd like to ask - Is math absolutely needed for ML courses?
If so, what sort of math should I get myself familiar with?8
- Outsourced the project for a group of developers to take over.
- They needed to set up a local copy of the project.
- A couple of error messages were thrown.
- They can't be bothered to look into it and fix it on their own.
- They dropped me an email and expected me to solve their shit for them.
Recently my company hired a group of developers to take over certain project that is using laravel framework.
They were hired to implement new features and probably do bug fixes.
The project handed-over to them does not have proper documentations (I'm not the original author of the code base.)
But, if they actually knows the fundamentals of laravel framework, they can set it up easily.
So these group of monkeys basically dropped me an email with screenshots of the errors they're facing whilst they were setting up their local server.
From the looks of it, they actually wanted me to resolve the issues even though its their job to get the local copy of the project up and running.
These aren't bugs mind you, they are bloody configuration issues. The error messages actually told them what's missing and etc.
They did not even bother to google about the issue, they just dropped me an email and expected me to do the job for them.
I mean fuck, those developers are paid, they are fucking DEVELOPERS, yet they can't solve their own shit and they expect people to spoon-feed them.
Fuck this type of developers.5
I don't consider myself as a good developer. At best, average. But damn, there are fuck tons of developers I come across in Singapore that's so fucking shit. Will these jackasses stop doing programming? For fuck sake.
There's a special place in hell for people that declares variable like this
let someawesomevariablename = null;4
I can't stand it when developers use short form to name variables. Makes it so horrible to read, and we have to guess what the fuck the variable actually mean.13
FUCKING TOXIC CLIENTS. They want fucking 10MB allowance for each file that a user can upload. (Images and PDF) I hope their fucking server reached max capacity in no time.
FUCKING WANKERS. AND FUCK THE PREVIOUS DEVELOPERS FOR LEAVING SUCH A SHIT CODEBASE.
Who the fuck puts all the damn logic in a controller?
TOXIC SHIT. I CAN'T EVEN EXPRESS HOW FUCKING PISSED OFF I AM.3
Got too used to zshell. Deleted some static assets and realised I wasn't in the correct directory. Almost deleted important user assets.1
I've never considered myself a good developer, until I took over a "senior" developer's codebase. Thank goodness he left. 😒
Really don't get people that ask developers to fix shit that aren't even part of a requirement.
The support for all the frontend projects are only up till IE10.
THE FUCK DO YOU MEAN WHEN YOU WANT ME TO FIX FUCKING SHIT THAT IS ON IE8?
Are most recruiters throw against the wall when they're an infant?
Please keep in mind, the entire conversation was over a phone call when i'm at work. FFS, he didn't even bother to ask if i'm convenient to talk on the phone.
Recruiter: "hi, i'm xxx and i spoke to you last week and you told me that you're looking for a frontend development role."
Me: "No i didn't, its the other way around."
Recruiter: "Oh, is that so? May I send your CV to my client?"
*Thinking to myself: ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? BECAUSE I'M SICK OF FRONTEND FFS. WOULD YOU ASK A CABIN CREW TO INTERVIEW FOR A PILOT JOB?! HONESTLY, GO FUCK YOURSELF*
Me: "Because that's not what I asked for?"
Recruiter: "Oh, alright then"
Fuck clients that are still using fucking IE 7. Seriously. Fuck this fuckers. Who the fuck still uses IE 7? People like them should just fucking get fucked in the ass with a watermelon. Jeezus.9
When your boss gives you shit requirements, its time to write shitloads of "if else" to return the result.3
Am I the only developer here that is too lazy to design and code out my own website? Instead, I just purchase a theme and install in on a wordpress.
It feels like i brought dishonour to my family.9
Was asked to do some update on a website yesterday in the morning (approx 10am),
PSDs came in at close to 9pm yesterday.
And the deadline is 2pm today.
Timeline was crappy as fuck because the suits in my office didn't fight to push back the timeline with the client even though the client was the one delaying for 6 weeks.
Long stoty short, i managed to hack the shit out of the update.
She wrote this in the email,
"as their partner, we would always like to be there to resolve their problems when situations call for it. I apologise that it is your expense; and i appreciate your team's greatest support to rush this out for us.
Again, i do owe you guys a meal for this;"
How many developers would prefer a better timeline than a meal?
I personally couldn't even be bothered in attending the lunch.5
fucking suits/executives working in the advertising industry should really wake the fuck up.
Instead of telling the developers to implement a component with a certain behaviour immediately, it would be fucking wise for you to check with your clients whether or not they want that particular component in a fucking behaviour that you have suggested.
FUCK ALL YOU IGNORANT SUITS OUT THERE.2
Quick survey, who thinks that Microsoft's documentation suck? ++ If you agree, -- if you disagree.
I've started off with PHP and has just recently started to pick up on C# and Asp.net.
I persobally thinks that PHP/Laravel's documentation is more kickass than Microsoft's.2
