Do all the things like ++ or -- rants, post your own rants, comment on others' rants and build your customized dev avatarSign Up
I had originally written a rant, asking about workflows. It then devolved into something much worse > Reddit-like taunting and whining.
Now before I go any further, yes I fell into his trap and sort of got taunted him back. Ill take half of the blame and hate that it might deserve.
So new question, why do people start off reading a rant (I thought my rant was a genuine question) and immediately enter a dick fighting contest? - myself included8
Question for you web devs out there.
I'm curious as to what your workflow involves for building and multi device testing? Whether it be grunt/gulp / something else?25
I think my HDD just imploded on itself....sounded like the Age of Ultron Sarcovia imploding blackhole scene was happening inside of my rig.
Half asleep on my desk and that noise scared the shit out of me. It was one of my redundant drives so everything should be okay...but still, I'll have to check in the morning and see if anything else got fucked. I'm scared to look - Tomorrow Rundle's problem.
Goodnight devRant <33
What do you guys do when you feel burnt out, and you don't feel like the weekend has actually let you unwind at all? Rinse and repeat week after week.
I might take a day and just goto the lake next weekend, as long as it's sunny.10
So random thought.
How many ducks do @dfox and @trogus have laying around their houses?
I was just looking through the store, adding a duck and a stress ball and maybe a hoodie to my cart. I then realized that each item has a real photo or two attached to it.6
Shitty goddamn "Agencies" and the piece of shit WordPress install garbage that comes along with them
150+ fucking plugins
Cause this is 2018 and more plugins = better wordpress site right?
CSS is easy enough > just edit the stylesheet right? I mean theres already CSS in there so this should work.
Fucking Noooope because the default custom style sheet doesn't get loaded through the garbage theme anymore.
Sure that makes alot of fucking sense sense, idiots added another fucking plugin for Custom CSS ontop of the "Live CSS Editor" ontop of the "Click and Place Builder"
WHAT IN THE FUCK
Can someone explain to me why these "Agencies" need to add 50 plugins just to edit fucking visuals? And when they decide they don't want to use that plugin anymore > add a new one, but we won't keep everything clean and in one place > lets just fucking leave it installed and fragmented for the next poor fucker that comes alone1
"restarts Windows machine*
*windows updates, hah fuck you ima take 30 mins to shut off and turn on again*

Too much stupid today..
Client: "Our server is almost full, fix it"
Me: "Okay, you can upgrade the VM, or I can see if theres anything that can be cleaned up?"
C: "Clean it up"
Me: *Finds 5 extra MySQL DB's that amount to 50-60GB in total*
Me: "Well I can remove some of your extra databases, and some of the local backups, as they're also backed up offsite. They're currently unused and dated back to the beginning of 2017, everything is out of date anyways."
Me: "Okay, is there a reason?"
Me: "Okay, so we'll upgrade the VM?"
Me: "I'm sorry, but those are really your two options"
C: "Just fix it"
What in the ducking fuck !@#$#%?
If you're so fuggin smart, then why do they pay me?
I'm clearly stupid and unable to read your mind.21
Hello other devRanters! I have a question for all of the lady developers out there. Guys chime in too if you feel like it.
My girlfriend is a practicing doctor - and she loves what she's doing. But the other day, she casually mentioned something that really surprised me. "I kind of wish I learned to write code".
I'm kind of a horrible mentor, and I tend to figure things out on my own after hours and hours of digging around / experimenting.
I guess my question is, how did you guys get started as dev's, and what language? Was it a curiosity thing? Did you have a mentor? Self taught? I don't want to start off somewhere that risks discouraging her from pursuing it.
I'd like to provide her somewhere to start, just to see if it peaks her interest.
Any thoughts would be appreciated :)10
I love you devRant
I'm heading to bed here pretty quickly, but before I lay down I just wanted to say something.
I've been a long time lurker, but have just recently registered as a member. Whenever I get a chance to, I have the urge to open up devRant and take a scroll through recent posts. You guys are the best, and give me something to chuckle at. It's just really great and refreshing to find a community that is supportive, and full of so many inspiring people. It's like Shangri-La - the hidden community that you always knew existed, but could never find2
