Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates, happy holidays to everyone, and happy almost-new-year!
We had a bit of a slow year in terms of devRant updates, but we gained some momentum towards the end of the year and we're looking forward to carrying it into 2020. Recently, we launched what I think are our coolest new avatar items yet (https://devrant.com/rants/2322869/...) and behind the scenes we got our iOS/Android apps on the latest version of the frameworks we use, which will help us continue to improve stability. Still, we definitely would have liked to do more, but we're optimistic the coming year will bring great things for devRant.
One thing we are very proud of is this year we had our best year ever in terms of platform stability and uptime. Despite the platform growing and our userbase growing, we had almost no complete app downtime even though our infrastructure is minimal. A large part of this is thanks to devRant++ supporters, who allow us to maintain a small but effective tier of infrastructure and redundancy.
In the coming year, we're going to launch one of our most ambitious initiatives yet, and we're also going to continue to improve the devRant experience itself. We want to try to gather more user feedback, so we'll be working on a way to do that too. Stay tuned, more on this stuff coming soon.
As always, thank you everyone, and thanks for your amazing contributions to the devRant community! And thank you to our awesome devRant++ supporters for continuing to be the main drivers to keeping devRant up and running.
Looking forward to 2020,
- David and Tim31

Since the end of my extended internship is slowly coming forth, I thought I'd (happily) ramble in the Random section for a bit:
*TL,DR: Internship went well, I learnt a lot*
The company I worked at made my experience with Frontend make huge leaps. I used both Vue and React, neither of which I had used before. I also learnt that you could mock things in unit tests instead of simulating full use. Finally, I also improved my experience with Kotlin again.
Both teams I have been in (since there was a switch due to a lot of people taking off days for holidays) told me that I am quite fast at grasping concepts I hadn't even heard of before, which is quite nice :)
Anyway, I wonder what the transition to school is going to be like.3
If you ever cooperate on a feature like this as a developer, I will find out where you live, drug you just enough to make your body limp, and mutilate your genitals with my keyboard.
Fucking sexist pricks, assuming I want to play with the blue robots and not the pink dolls. Fuck all of them.
Actually, fuck all your retarded cablecutting VOD services with your awful recommendation engines. Fuck your lack of proper playback features, fuck your bloated mobile apps, fuck your vendor lockins, fuck your region locks.
I'm back to pirating, and I'll just buy a pile of merch, trot proudly through the office with an Adventure Time backpack and a laptop full of Steven Universe stickers.35

If you need to debug an issue issue in Safari on the latest iOS, look no further than Chrome / Chromium 55.
So I'm working as a self taught developer at my first job.
There is this guy with apparently 8 years experience in Java. He has been telling me to get a degree as no one will offer me a job and blah blah heard it a million times from a lot of people don't care.
Ok back to the point.
That guy doesn't know how to use git. Doesn't know what branches are. Pushes straight to master without doing a git pull, breaks master then cries why it doesn't work.
When he pushes anything, he tells others to not push as he's pushing and that everyone should save their stuff and push after he's done.
Once I was working with him and he was about to leave for some days. I had to work on what he was working.
So I tell him to push whatever he's done on his branch and I'll continue on it but oh no no, he says.
Him: I can't push as I haven't completed it.
Me: Duh. That's why I'll work on it.
Him: but i can't commit half of it to master.
Me: master? Create your own branch.
Him: *cricket sounds*
Me: alright. You pack things up I'll create it for you. (Ends up creating a branch and commiting stuff)
It's ironic how the people who persist on telling me to get a degree can't work the basic things out while having one.
Alright we're not using master now. Branch permissions thank you. But the point remains. He does the same with the dev branch.24
did anyone use devRant api?
rants, comments and other are fine. but for authentication, I always get 405 (I used all options, encoded url as body and all)
Is there any trick that I missed?17
YIL (Yesterday, I learned) that, in Austria, digital signatures on documents (using a signature you can only get by verifying your identity, which can be done in person, or online but no I'm not making pics with my passport, ever) have the same value as handwritten signatures.
If someone provides you a PDF and tells you to print it out and sign it, you can just sign it on your PC and send the PDF back, and unless they explicitly told you not to do so (it can't be put in terms and conditions), they can't reject a signature provided in this way.6
I am sorry!
I want to apologize to everybody here.
I love DevRant, I enjoy reading other developers stories and rants. DevRant has taught me me a lot.
But I also have to admit, that I, at least at the beginning, did not see the real purpose of DevRant. I started posting memes... I found them on other platforms, made a screenshot and cropped them out. In the end I posted them on DevRant. And i feel bad about it. I dont think that DevRant is supposed to be about that. DevRant is a place where everybody should share experiences, problems, ideas.
People like me, reposting memes, are slowly destroying the platform.
Thats why i am sorry, I am going to delete my old meme posts in a few days.34
Update concerning the current state of RemindMe
Now after Skayo's great contribution to the project, RemindMe is as of now, stable.
Contributions is still highly appreciated though
A wild Devrant bot has appeared!
Tired of forgetting about a rant? Don't worry, RemindMe is here!
How to use it?
RemindMe will remind you about the rant you mentioned it on after the time you specified
I was getting bored and my salary had not changed for over a year. Answered a few headhunters' messages. Got an interview. Then - the second one. Got an offer with >2x the salary I was getting back then. I said I'll think about it
Came back to my office after that interview. 5 minutes later I got an outlook invitation for a performance review with my manager, scheduled for tomorrow.
During the review he appologised he had overlooked the fact that my promo and salary had to be bumped up a while ago. We had a nice chat [he is an amasing manager! I've learnt so much from him...] and he offered a 50% salary bump. There I go and reveal that I got an offer yesterday with 100% higher amount of € and asked if we could meet in the middle. He agreed :)
I was offered a lot and I asked for even more. And I got it! :) I've agreed to a 75% bump because I really like working here. It's an amazing employer.25
drBot - A python library and framework for building notification-based devRant bots. [more details]4
TAKE A LOOK AT MY OTHER RANT FIRST!
SYNTAX THEME SELECTION
In this rant you can set your theme for the syntax highlighter!
Just ++ the comment with your preferred theme.
The bot checks for the "<user> ++'d your comment!" notification and stores your selection!
(When you ++ multiple themes, your theme will be the one you ++'d the last)
Then, next time you request a syntax highlighting (see other rant on how to do that), that theme will be used!
Please don't post any comments here if possible!!!
(You can post comments and ask questions in the other rant)
Feel free to ++ this rant tho ;D
Have fun and thank you for using this bot!28
