I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on working alone vs working with a development team?
I’m a sole developer working on 4 internal projects at once and it’s a bit exhausting, especially when I have no one to talk to about ideas, issues and bugs.
Has anyone made the jump from working alone to a group and loved it? Or vice versa?3
I wonder if anyone comes on here and is just appalled at all the intense vulgarity from rants lol
I mean there’s truly no other social network that welcomes the release of frustrations than dev rant, amiright?5
At what point did someone think this was a good idea: "Hey how about when someone visits our site it starts auto-playing all videos so it fucking infuriates everybody", how fucking stupid can you be - and who asked for this fucking shitty feature?2
You know, in 2017 we're all about accepting everyone and who they are whether they're gay / bisexual / transgender etc.
But can't we move onto something more important like the acceptance of farts? Like geese sometimes you just need to, but God damn it's awkward.10
Okay seriously, how the FUCK does the Windows 10 taskbar STILL freeze at random times when trying to access it.
This is the foundation of your user interface and it's STILL fucking BARELY WORKS!
I have a BRAND NEW surface book with ONE APPLICATION installed, yet when I try to click the start button or access Cortana, it sometimes freezes or takes multiple clicks to activate it. Are you shitting on me right now?
Yes I've reformatted, reinstalled, installed updates etc etc. There's no excuse for this trash in 2017. I'm a massive windows fanboy, but holy shit, apple would not stand for this kind of garbage interaction with their UI.
*An actual conversation for desktop support*
Me: Picks up phone call from user
User: Hi there, it seems I can login with my most recent password, can you help?
Me: Okay no problem, I'll just need to reset your password
User: *sigh* really? Another password I'll need to remember?
What I really want to say to users who give me this reaction:
Are you fucking shitting me? Do you know how many passwords I need to remember on a fucking whim for my job? Hundreds! Yea keep fucking complaining that it's going to be *SO* hard to remember your 3 fucking passwords in life.
Jesus fucking Christ, the shit I hear that people complain about.16
I think my web interfaces suck. I'm a back end web developer, but have to do all the front end work too. Does anyone have any pointers or tips to become a better web UI designer?11
