Only God can refactor this code.
I wish I knew who wrote this. 😬
App.jsx is doomed, looks like the content of jquery.min.js.
4:04 sleep not found.
The moment is see the codes elongate past the 120 character guide line on my team's project, I don't need to git blame, I know I can't be the one who wrote the code.
Why the fuck will you expect the rest of the team to scroll horizontally while reading a code?
I'm gonna use my IDE auto-format on the code, I don't care if I was supposed to work on that file or not.5
I'm intentionally resigning from my remote software development job to teach my company a lesson. The guy who wrote the codes previously really knew how to cook spaghetti 😀😂.
To add a single line takes minutes, because when you do something else breaks, and you'll keep fixing what breaks when you tried fixing what breaks when you try fixing what..... endless loop of bug-fix cycle.
Now they blame it on me.
They won't understand if they don't get someone new, my reputation will fix itself through that..
My first opinion after sighting the codes was, "re-write the whole project using better patterns and architecture", the reply as you can guess, we'll do that later.
I couldn't even upgrade the server to use even PHP 7.1 because the framework breaks, the guy has editted a lot from the vendors files. Don't ever try composer updates.
Two word to describes the situation. "It sucks".
The previous developer needs to be shot, literally.7
When your project partner tells you not yo use database constraints, know that he's about to do some messy handling of the database.
How can someone make a user deletable and leave his other data lying around in other tables? I'm tired.
Messy codes everywhere.2
I'm starting to think about not working for this potential client I met today.
He said he wants me to modify an open source software, I asked him what language it's written with, he replied "Open Source". He thinks Open source was a language.
He hasn't even given me the link of the repo, he was already telling me not to put bug in the project in a bid to always make him contact me for updates.
I asked him sarcastically, "Who does that? ".
He was also talking about me doing minor tweaks here and there if need be after I deliver.
Too many red flags for me. No contract and I'm not interested. I foresee it's going to go sour.
What do you guys feel?15
My friend just told me his history of hating stackoverflow so much.
He said whenever he had an issue and he googled for solutions, stackoverflow pops in the search results. He clicks on stackoverflow and copy the first thing he sees.
And it always won't work out.
Few years down the line, he noticed what he has always been copying is someone else's problem and not a solution.
Wait! I screenshot this from the advert of a company who advertises code academy.
Does this mean they want to train people on how to edit minified codes? 🙄
Cos it looks like this guy just opened jquery.min.js and took a picture.
I can't help it. 💔😂😂😂9
My friend learnt how to use CircleCI for his laravel projects and he hasn't given me a breathing space since, he's constantly saying "I'm now a DevOps engineer".
I told him "You're only only a BugOps engineer". 😂😂
How the fuck does a community write an open source library/package that works wonders, but fail to write a proper documentation.
So many times I have to look into the core of frameworks, libraries and packages so form my own documentation in my head.
I guess I should be contributing too.
We are all to blame.1
I had interest in studying medicine since a very young age but I started coding before I got admission. I found medicine fun because of that.
I perceive hormones and receptors as events and event listeners.
I perceive the all or non responses of neurons as binaries 0 and 1.
I perceive the vestibular apparatus in the ear as a gyroscope and accelerometer.
I perceive the human body as a machine 😂😂2
I just fixed a bug I've been trying to fix for over 10 hours. "Email not sending in laravel notifications but sending with Mail::send". How did I fix it?
Changed "email_address" to "email" because that's what the framework was expecting.
How do I explain this to my client? 😂😂3
They say PHP is dead, PHP sucks, PHP this, PHP that. I don't want to hear anymore. This dead man is doing wonders. 😠13
Does anyone has the bootstrap theme, DashKit from themes.getbootstrap.com, or has a coupon code I can use the get some dollars off the purchase price?
I urgently need to use the template.3
