I literally just cleared 150Gb from my laptop by deleting the node_modules folders, of projects I'm currently not working on 🤦♂️11
My plan to become rich:
1. Create a library / framework that's really just an easy wrapper for other libraries.
2. Write a bunch of books / courses online teaching this "new" library
3. Market it to overpowered but impressionable PM's who'd fall for anything with the word "inovative" in it6
Disabling pasting into a password field in 2020 with password managers, is retarded. That's it that's the rant. Doesn't matter if you think password managers are good or not. Its still retarded that there's a 40 something year old dumbfuck manager who told a web designer at EA to disable pasting into a fucking password field because he was dumb enough to think it stopped hackers or some shit like that.19
Work as efficient as possible!
Also developers :
Pressing the arrow up ⬆️ in the terminal 90 times to find a command that could have been manually typed out in 1 sec19
I lost my sanity and googled ”FUCK YOU XCODE YOU FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT”...
That's how I found devRant.11
Companies: We can’t find any senior developers to hire.
Also companies: We pay seniors like juniors.9
I just gave a 20 minute presentation in front of fifty people, and apparently did well enough that I got five private compliments afterwards, including one from the vice president. 🥳
And all of that without a single drop of rum!18

Was already communicating with a recruiter and made her very clear (a gazillion times) that I don't want a Microsoft related job.
After a few months she calls me telling about this amazing opportunity; a Microsoft related job.
Told her what I told her fifteen quintillion times before and she responded very guilt trippy/offended because she spent so much time on working this out for me.
Fucking retarded and awkward.6
Guys, I am studying for my Master's degree but I am wondering if I should stop.... I mean... isn't that racist?12
If the HR asks you to not disclose your salary with others, most likely you are the one getting paid less.
Discuss your salaries. Know your worth.8
Sorry, we need someone who knows AWS8
Anyone else been in a conf call where nobody cares what you say? No matter how good you explain your point. And everytime you say something, someone else just starts talking over you.
And then you realize that you have muted yourself.15
Please do rename the "master" branch to "Führer". The umlaut will probably catch a bunch of applications that aren't UTF-8 ready.15

Ok, rubber ducks are ducking helpful, but I moved to use actual ducks.
If you are currently stuck somewhere where your rubber-mate cannot help out, feel free to ask. I’ll forward.17
Clickbait will never change.
It's the most stable and constant source of mild annoyance.
"These 3 programming languages will net you the highest salary"
"Ten home improvement tips using nothing but recycled underwear"
"How to cut onions like a real chef"
"3 programming languages to learn while being bored in self-quarantine"
"Ten ways to use underwear as facemasks during the pandemic"
"Onions might cure corona, click here to learn how to cut them"
"These 3 programming languages will increase your chances of survival in the wastelands"
"Ten ways to patch up your shelter against radioactive ashes using old underpants"
"Hydroponic onions are a good source of nutrients. Here's how you cut them with your camping knife"16
I save about 2h commute (so 4h/day) which is nice.
Also not constantly getting interrupted by colleagues2
Turns out the only thing that was ever needed in order to get IT to fix the VPN was a pandemic outbreak.6
I sometimes correct people's PRs from under the shower or from the toilet, but my favorite place to code are in the dune forests (Netherlands).
Most unusual place would be operating room at the hospital though, getting my leg/foot bugfixed after a car accident. I asked the surgeon if it was OK if I brought my phone in, to distract myself, so I went through some code cleanup tasks.3
