What the.. Apples member center (for managing iOS dev certificates and profiles) keeps crashing the whole Safari.
Safari restarted three times in 5 minutes now..?!
Appears to be some strange way of self-irony when the browser's developer builds a site provoking a quite critical bug though... x)
My head is about to explode... Trying to wrap my head around the best way for integrating a suitable frontend solution with a symfony backend.
So many implications, so many opinions, so many possibilities.. A very big project, a lot of requirements, a very small team and most of the colleagues have their main focus on backend development though..
Feeling lost currently, not really sure how to approach this huge topic 😥4
Came across a nice comparison today:
GoT: Countless characters and competing factions fighting for influence.
This indicates what I often ask myself when posting a rant.. but could be used for example for feature requests, too. 😋
The song is quite horribly though.. was kind of a running gag during my studies. A friend reminded me of it a couple of days ago and my mind directly associated it with @dfox 😛3
During my 2 weeks of vacation I thought I shouldn't spend all the time on private projects but should get my head clear a bit. Wanted to extend our kitchen a little for a long time now anyways!
But obviously DevRant is always on my mind cause after laying down the jigsaw I saw this little guy.. 😜
Happy holidays to all of you! :)1
Rubber duck debugging - Batman style!
Gonna be necessary today I guess, but always keep in mind when you feel desperate while debugging: The night is darkest just before the dawn!6
A question arose in our office today and I can't stop thinking about it:
If you imagine your life as a file lying somewhere, being steadily changed and expanded - of which filetype would it be and why?8
My family keeps telling me the same old story over and over again about me when I was 3 years old, holding a Gameboy in my hands, cheering each time Mario died (due to the failure theme I'd guess, didn't have any other sadistic tendencies though). Over the years my gaming ambitions became a little more purposeful. ;)
However it's not surprising that I started thinking about how games are developed and how I can start my own.
So when I was around 14 I went to the local library and borrowed the first game development book striking my eye.. unfortunately it was about Delphi. But hey, I was young and naive.
Surprisingly, I didn't surrender back then.. but to be honest, I do not recall one line of Delphi. :D
Does anybody else feel a little sad when reading rants or negative comments concerning frameworks you've used a lot or maybe even more in case you're still using them?
In my particular case I just read some comments tackling Angular - and I do not want to say, that those comments aren't justified. We're currently living in a more than ever fast-paced front end framework world and Angular is simply not state of the art anymore.
So I do not want to start a "what's the best framework" discussion here, that's not my intention.
This is more about the feeling you get when you've built a lot of stuff using a framework, maybe you have still projects running on this framework or even contributed.
Either you do not have the time to switch to another framework yet or you're even still somehow satisfied with the way they're working.
However - reading all this negative stuff about such a framework is sometimes not that easy.
..or am I just some kind of strange, sentimental developer guy? ;D10
Lately submitted an app to the App Store, it was reviewed by Apple, everything fine, I released it.
Last week I submitted an update containing some minor fixes - rejected?!
Checked the reason: Apple has a problem with the app icon (which did not change at all) showing a stylized iPhone.
Right now I'm thinking about solving this by adding a Samsung logo to the icon though..4
Quite an exciting election in America, got to settle a bit.. So enough with stars & stripes, back to bits & bytes!
