I'm currently looking for an internship related to machine learning (finishing my Msc).
WHY ON EARTH ARE ALL (or at least 80%) INTERNSHIPS PROPOSALS ABOUT BANKS, FINTECH, INSURANCES AND SO ON ?
I mean, we can now create music, identify tumerous cells, generate realistic pictures of anything you could dream of, drive cars without human interaction, create amazing chatbots... But no, I guess all that shit can't make enough money, better work on a system that will refuse you a loan.
Makes me really sad. I mean whats the point of studying the coolest techs around if it is not for the greater good ?
I might be utopist though.5
“Start your own company” they said
“It will be fun” they said
“You’ll be your own boss” they said
Idiots forgot to mention how hard it would be. Late nights, early mornings. Client searching...
It’s all good though, locked down three well paying clients today. Drinks on me 😎8
I am really sorry to inform you guys that I fucked up the notifications of v1.3.1. You might not have noticed it but it doesn't update the notifications correctly sometimes.
I would urge the existing users to update the app to v1.3.3 which is the most stable version right now.16
Feels great to write a script that downloads consecutive episodes of a series sequentially ..
Hotstar doesnt support Linux ..16
My ideal dev job, would be a job I can show compassion towards. A team I can be proud of and learn from. And a vibrant workspace with likeminded individuals who just want to improve themselves even if they feel their at their pinnacle.
My current office tries to make use of new technologies, we've embedded docker, vagrant, a few ci systems on an in need basis per team, and a lot of other tools.
My only real qualms are they feel indifferent towards new languages and eco systems ( Node.js, GoLang, etc ). Our web team is still using angular.js 1.x, bower, refuses to look into webpack or a new framework for our front end which is currently being bogged down by angulars dirty checking.
Our RESTful services are all using flask and Python, which become increasingly slow with our increase in services. I've pushed for the use of Node or GoLang with a GraphQL interface but I'm shot down consistently by our principle engineers who believe everything and anything must be written in Python.
I could go on, but tldr; I'm 21 and I have a ton of aspirations for web development. I'd like to believe I'm well rounded for my age, especially without any formal education. I'd love to be surrounded by individuals who want the same, to learn and architect the greatest platforms and services possible.1
My desktop used to be so messy, and organizing files was a pain. So I created a small script that would create folders based on file extensions. Now instead of hundreds of files all messily placed in one folder I have 10 folders with all the files seperated by extensions6
Hi everyone !
I'm following devrant from a while now, but just joined.
It's one of the best dev communities out there.
I don't usually post a lot on forums and stuff like that, but expect from me a lot of ++s :)
Also, English is not my main language, if i make any mistakes fell free to correct me7
MS paint is going away...
Wait no it's not...
SHUT UP! No one cares about paint. No one even uses it anyways. And no, because you opened it twice last year to crop a screenshot does not count as using it.16
How would you describe devRant to a non-techie?
Mine is, "A place where geeks make fun of things together."11
Teachers teach students to code, without any field experience
These students learns things tht they dont need in their life and becomes teachers
The cycle continues...
From my genius analysis, we can see that these students need not go to a company to work like a horse,
Why are we in a company working like a horse?15
The one that give me a roof over my head.
And pays my bills.
And bring food on the table.
And give me a lot of free time for my hobbies.
And avoids me to discuss with stupid clients.
Ok, maybe the last one is a bit unrealistic..1
Saw a rant a few days ago about hotel WiFi being shitty.
I'm just here to confirm that rant was accurate.2
Have to get up at 4am.
I go to bed at 22pm.
Body doesn't want to sleep until 2am....
I love my body! <39
I fucked up my brain while learning brainfuck! 😣
Edit: And yeah, I still don't know how to use it...6
As an undergraduate junior, programming beyond basic data types is very overwhelming. Web and mobile seem great. So does ML. Open source is amazing to use but scary to contribute to. Seriously, being a programmer or even trying to be can be hard.2
I've been waiting for my girlfriend to try some clothes for the past 40 mins and we were still in the first shop. I swear it's been 2 days since we arrived at the mall.
I just want to finish my first vuejs project (vuejs from a back end dev perspective is simply awesome).
Not a true devrant but a rant non the less. Save me devbrothers2
UPDATE: I have my dream job.
About a year ago I commented on Devrant that I was having some hard luck interviewing for development jobs.
Shortly after my post I decided to lower my expectations and took a job at a tech support call center.(3 month contract)
After getting a little experience(Not just a degree) I was able to land a hardware support job at a fortune 500 company.(Not what a programmer really wants 😂)
I worked hard and started writing tools at home to help with the job. I started giving them out to the other techs and put them on a little internal website for easy access.
About 3 months ago I just became a software engineer within the company.(after 6 months of hardware repair.) The main reason I got the job was because I showed them how much overtime and extra work I had done and that the techs relied on my software to do there jobs and that I was dependable.
It was hard work but it was worth it. And I built software that I never would have done if I hadn't taken this "lower job"
So keep your chin up and your fingers on the keys, I was in your shoes a year ago. 😉12
I used to use quora for most of my programming related trivia and tips but of late I'm glued to devRant.3
Do we have a number, for how many users have joined devRant?
...I mean, yeah, social media and the Play Store page for devRant display a number, but I'd like to hear it from the source :D14
Hackathons in 2015: almost everyone made web apps
Hackathons in 2017: almost everyone did machine learning9
Been getting rejected for Linux related jobs all over for the last few months. Yesterday I emailed a company yet again because fuck it.
Got a call today from their recruiter! Genuinely nice guy and he's going to call me back tomorrow! Let's hope this finally goes well 😄20
