I bet I'm the only one that reads spaghetti PHP better than whatever python script
I fucking hate all those ":" around the code.
Note: I don't want to start a war over which is better, they both get the job done in their way.
Also, none really will change its mind anyway, so just don't start a war, please?6
Well I program in PHP, JS and C#.
Weak typed variables are literally the worst thing ever.
In C# I particularly hate the way callback as handled9
So my boss run 2 different companies, the one that hired me and the one that I work for like 40% of the time (through the first one).
This second company is now having a client that's asking for educational qualification for both my boss and me (?)
I mean, even if I didn't study, why would you need that? The product is up and running and works, so wtf do you want?11
I like how it's lowly becoming more and more a typed language.
Anyway, nice updates, but don't really see much changes overall
We uploaded a theme (The7) to a fresh new wordpress installation.
We imported a few pages and then BOOM! everything stopped working.
That fucking theme and its plugins just destroy the whole server...
I might be bad at indenting, ok, but THIS...
THIS is one of the worst thing I've ever seen for HTML7
PAID for a support call,
dude's answering could barely be understood while speaking English and didn't know a thing about the topic of the call itself (it was very very specific).
The call lasted 5m and was only used to schedule another one on Monday to let them understand what we're asking and come back at us with a solution.
Fucking waste of time.4
I literally won't ever understand:
Everyone also hates PHP.
So to get rid of PHP smh we decided to use js in the backend, too? And that shit is working and a lot of people enjoy this? Everything is fucked up34
It finally fucking happend, I wish it didn't, but it happened.
I was in my very first call through zoom were I didn't even speak and didn't even really need to listen.
Everything could have been an e-mail, of course16
I just fucking despise working on someone else's code and it's filled with errors like "reciever" instead of "receiver" or "mesasge" instead of "message"...
it fucking leads to an astonishing amount of fucking errors just because I know how to write english words AND I'M ITALIAN WTF19
I'm here to ask your help, you can do it.
In my about-to-open company we're gonna build custom WorkStations and similar PC, but up to now we have no images of them.
As we don't want to use images from google or other public sources, can you please comment with your best computer?
Thank you again to whoever wants to help!12
When bugs are seen by the client and boss therefore asks me "did you know about this bug?", what I'd really like to answer is:
"well shit, no! I would have solved that or at least told you about it, don't you think? what kind of fucking question is that?"
But then I just answer "no, lemme check"2
Working on a marijuana dealer website and there's an order of 420€ on it.
I bet she did it on purpose6
Trying to implement WebRTC for Voice chat in the company app in Unity.
- it's super fucking fast
- it kinda is peer to peer
- WebRTC comes in very different ways and therefore you either need to properly config the server or change the way the app works
- Each signaling server might have different config so you can't even connect to different servers like you do for http, ftp and so on
- You need to use a server to know each peer
- You need to use another server to make the actual messages go through
- None of it seems to actually be p2p except the fact that you will need to make a different connection to each and every other client in the conference
So basically it was engineered to be as compatible as possible and therefore no server-side default was defined in the protocol, which means it won't ever be actually very compatible with anything at all since everyone will make its configuration.
Fuck me, fuck WebRTC and fuck this whole shit1
I work for a quite small company (4 people) and about 3 years ago, there was this guy from Bolivia who was an intern for graphics and similar stuff, nothing related to programming.
Turns out we got to be quite friends and still hang out from time to time now.
Best thing was when boss wasn't at the office for like a week and we hadn't much to work on, so we spent time smoking, eating, chatting and watching movies... very great time!
Isn't it just lovely when your boss brings his 3yo daughter who just makes noise for a living to the office while you're on a hard task?5
>First day back at work.
>Boss tells me something is totally fucked up on an app we've been developing for the past 2 years
>see the bug, can't really understand why, but looks like it's a conversion issue (from string to float)
>realize that on some phones, the conversion of the number "9.1234" becomes "91234" and then after calculations, becomes "9123,4" which of course fucks everything up
>looking through it and realize that from the latest version on, unity convers string based on current culture
>still trying to figure out how to fucking specify that it must use english culture all over the place1
After months of planning, my friend and I are starting our company.
Trying to actually make money in Italy beside our first job.

My latest "joke-app" has been published yesterday.
I highly doubt that anyone will buy it, but still, I hope someone will!
The whole point, of course, is that you can show off how rich you are by buying this stuff. nothing else.
If anyone is about to tell "rich people will have iPhones" the answer is "the app is only on playstore because I'm not rich at all and don't want to pay Apple, plus if you're really rich, just buy a phone and then buy the app"
So yeah, need money so I started looking for extra projects to develop and found a project to make "the new facebook" and it just kinda sucks.
I just got access to the whole codebase and it's done using angular, nodejs and typescript (which is cool to me), while the dude contacting me was telling me it was done in react (which is kinda a big no for me).
Well, anyway, I start by cloning the repo and the npm-i the whole thing, it's not even at 10% of the whole process and I already got like 50 deprecated packages over maybe a hundred needed (total of 2054 node modules installed).
Well I kinda don't even know where to start from this, all I know is that I'm gonna do it just for the money so I'll be a little underpaid (about 500$/month) while according to me the price should be about 1500$/month, but I can't do it full-time, so it kinda works out.4
In the past months, every week or so, boss asked me:
"So what are you doing now?"
My typical reply was "finished thing and then gonna move on the oculus project to update that"
To which, he always replied with: "Nah, leave it, focus on all the other platforms"
Today we have to send the Oculus version to a big client and yet nothing is updated because it never was a main thing to update.
I will surely fuck something's up on this app, but not gonna take the blame.
I'm not a server-man, I mostly just develop apps in unity and similar stuff.
Boss: yo, can you make this work? I just can't understand https://github.com/ant-media/...
Me: Well IDK, there's a "start.sh" in it, just give it a try
*error*: /usr/local/antmedia cannot be found
Me: well then just put the whole thing in it.
*everything works flawlessly*
did you do magic?1
Developing in Unity for Android.
>install UMP Pro for Android, iOS from assets store
>latest version on store: 1.7.3
>documentation in the plugin itself
>wow that's rare!
Wtf? is this documentation coming from the future?
My boss asked me and another one to make a webapp that uses socket.io as "api".
There are 2 client apps (one in ionic+react the other one just react) and the server code (nodeJS)
Now he started working on it too but he has no experience of nodeJS and no experience whatsoever on react and only heard of ionic.
on his first deploy nothing connected anymore.
But i gotta say I appreciate the fact he's trying to keep himself up to date with technologies we're using4

MFW I just wanted to get 300€ and not a job6
I know it's not really related to development, but I got in a discussion on twitter and one dude tweeted "in science, 1 isn't 1"
And so I was like "mate what? science is highly dependent on math and in math, 1 is kinda always worth math"
And this this girl comes in and just says:
"it's not true that 1 is always 1 because there's binary code as well"
And was was like totally astonished, like, have you even studied something? 1b = 1d = 1x and it's always 1 in whatever base!
(she even says she's some sort of engineer in her bio)8
Let's say you're building an application for a very specific android device, and you know exactly what it comes with (OS, architecture, Graphics libraries, RAM, ecc)
I can't really make HUGE changes to my code, but since I'm working with unity, I cant make some changes in the way the APK is built.
So let's say my device is ARCH64, uses OpenGLES3.1 and has 4GB of RAM, what are the improvements in making the APK for 64bits instead of 32?7
