Hey everyone. I wouldn't do this normally but this is actually my first project that has gone live ehich was also the base of my study for becoming front-end dev. Its a front end lib that mixes bootstrap with styled components. But also explains a way to create react components with variables and theming helpers to quickly create components and themes that are sharable.
Any help testing and criticising would be of great help. We are trying to be reactive for bug correction and improvements.
1. Type as fast as i think with no typos. Ever.
2. Take a magic bus ride through the internet.
3. Have the smartest ai in the world that believes that i am its one and only master.1
Is know this has been asked before but is it actually worth spending money for online training on platforms like udemy. Don‘t you already have large amount of resources on the internet?
What do they have that the free internet does not offer?3
I was told a few times how Musk was a bit of a super villain. And while yes he kind a fits the batman rule of super villain， the ones i‘d trust less are the quieter ones.
Yes Jeff Besos is actually the real super villain. He speaks less， working conditions seem quite draconian and more importantly， you have to be an asshole on yhe business world and he is one of the best.4
I was on holidays and relaxed.
Played enough video games to bore myself to hell.
Then a friend pushed me to install Fortnit...
Im on extended holidays right now...1
Write comments you dumb fucks.
If you change shit that is different from the original pattern， fucking write a comment.
1 minute vs. 45 minutes you mother fucker.14
Software engineering is becoming main stream.
It will become the average job in the future. Anyone who cant dev is going to be poor and do the dirtiest jobs.
Dev average income is going to drop， mainly because a shit loads of frameworks and dumbification of software and code creation will be set in place to accomodate large population as devs.
The will create a seperation between the normal idiot dev who will be paid minimum wage and the smart ones that create the frameworks and dumbed down code creating tools.
Its oversimplified obviously because im not taking into account sys admin and so on but in general it will follow that trend. Its like this today but because there isnt enough devs， idiots are still revered and payed big bucks.
Give it 50 to 75 years imo.5
I have been introduced to linux with debian.
Im quite comfortable with it. But i would like to change to a similar distro that is a tiny bit more complex.
But i think some one here needs a bit of love.
I know you might say that you don‘t care but i’m pretty sure under that scary avatar is a big teddy bear.
You seem to be going through a rough patch (like probably many others but hell this love rant is about you)
So devRanters，for some one who has greatly participated in the community， show some love to @AlexDeLarge. Who now will totally hate me but i still think he needs it (but not to relax， if you say that i will circumcise you and make a knot around your lips with that foreskin， and if youre a chick， well. I might just use my own).
Thank you for your time and don't give @AlexDeLarge， my physical address， im sorry man its with good intentions!!!!1
My new setup.
The conputer on the left is the new and first comouter i built.
Im looking to invest in an extra screen that tilts vertically and 2 GPUs.6
I was given a 1700 nzd budget to make my own computer.
The mouse i threw in with my own money. I went 150nzd above budget and the rest is coming during the week.
Its going to be my first custom computer. And im fucking excited like its christmas back when i was 7 years old!!!9
I am curious to know， where people get their tech news from?
- TopGitHub app to check the github trends (star growth in days，weeks or months)
- Geek app， which has 1 to 2 articles every 2 days on random tech， hacking stuff.
- Security app， which aggregates news from various tech sources.
I mostly get my news from apps right now as its an easy go when i am on the loo (like right now ;))13
I have a baby. He doesnt like sleeping. He has GERD (reflux).
He rarely sleep more than 2 hours at a time (probably 1 a week).
The best he has ever slept in his 11month of living was 5 hours. That day he was sick and he ended up in hospital.
All good， he is still alive and well.
But he goes down at 7pm and wakes every 2 hours if not less.
Somestimes he is easy to put down and thongs are bearable， but many times it can take up to 30-45 minutes to out him down.
I dev during the day but i am longing to have nights where i can completly concrntrate. But my partner has been survivjng on broken sleep for about a year now.
She lets me have longer stretches but i either stay up late and havr to feed the baby and jiggle him， which breaks concentration and has pbliged me to get an extra desk and screento be put into an uncomfortable place so i could code at home (my orfice is a rent out 10msquare batch in the garden).
Or sometimes i just get up at 3 or 4am so that he can sleep on me 2eme i can jiggle him when he wakes.
I cant deal with being woken every 2 hours. I throw tantrums like im a 7 year old.
Ive rarely had such a sucking life quality as now.
Its a good things babies a cute i tell you that!!!!7
But i have studied databases for a few weeks and i have been thrown into the backend.
Java - spring boot - myBatis - postgreSQL.
Its a big change to my react world.
And its fucking amazing.
I met someone who worked at google. She gave me a lot of asvice and made me feel like i knew shit...
We were on a discussion and she made fun of me saying thats i livwd under a rock because i didnt know that youtube was owned by google.
And then she shut me down because i asked her about her opinion about Microsoft and git and told me she didnt know wjat git was.....
Im confused because i was okay not knowing something becausei see myself as learner. Yet she laughed at me. Which i can accept because its okay to laufh about people.
But she shut down the git discussion like a bitch “i don't know what it is and i dont want to speak a out it” in front of her friends.
While i would normaly take a dump on that person's front step， i am living in my partners city where everybody knows Each other.
Regardless， im a bit drunk and shes a ducktwit. I had a great night but ahe made me feel like shit coz she acts like she knows all this shit and im realising that she os just full of shit.7
Any good resources for sql?
Im getting heavy into databases. Im a noob but i need to reach top level quickly.
Im gonna buy 1 oelr 2 books. Im leaning towards oreillys “learning sql“.
When i was 15 i wanted to try myself at coding and hacking.
Yeah a bit ignorant i know.
Anyhow，i randomly found a python tutorial i believe.
Got things running and started the first tasks.
Create a var， associate a string. Create a second var and associate a new string.
Concat them and you get a new string with both of em together.
Then i told myself that this was fucking shit and i quit.
15 years later，i regret more and more that i let it go but what a fucking dumb tutorial that was...
17 years of coding and i would have been a fucking beast.15
I think one of my biggest mistakes as a dev in the becoming is to have tried to produce code rather than think code.
The patience to try and understand a problem rather than just solve it.
After spending 2 hours on what seemed like a ridiculously small issue，i know what the problem was before solving it.
Which meant i did take longer to solve it but i DID NOT take the wrong direction. Which would ultimately have come back to my face some time soon.
Coding takes a fuck load of time -_-.4
Yea we got problem with certain tools like `npm`， but threw is so much shit that comes out， in a matter of month you have solutions springing up for those obstacles.
Its pretty fucking beautiful ;)
Why you would sell your company to Microsoft too!
1. Your company is so succesful， the valuation is so high， only a handful of companies could buy it.
2. Running a company takes a shit load of energy， and most normal people hope to relax at one point in their life.
3. People at the head of major international companies are not normal humans. They like do over work and they have one goal. Be number 1.
So good successful people sell to evil and more succesful people.
And when i say evil， i really just mean that being number 1 is more important than ethics.
Having a baby while starting an IT company and learning IT at the same time.
Found myself crying and swinging a bat， listening to Limp Bizkit as i remembered what it felt to be 13 and being made fun of coz i hadn't kissed a girl yet.10
