*project manager + designer are showing new designs*
PM: so, can we get some estimates?
Devs (literally all of us): do we have a mockup for this interaction?
Devs: What about that one?
Designer: not yet.
Devs: What happens when you click here? Hover there? How does this look if I select that option + this option at the same time? Does it make sense that a user can select *this* option with *that* option? They're kind of mutually exclusive.
BTW: code freeze is in two weeks...4
Me to team: eslint-plugin-import is tripling the time it takes to lint our project (literally adding minutes to the linting process). Do we really need it?
Boss: what does it do?
Me: ensures import paths are correct; reorders imports; ...
Teammate: imports should NEVER be reordered!
*cue debate about reordering imports that is still raging - my question is never answered*5
Finished my first Advent of Code! ☃️ Pretty excited about that. Used Rust this year. Day 18 and 20 were brutal! Especially 18: it was the last one I finished just now.
Anyway, Happy Holidays everyone! 🎄1
Coworking office Holiday party: leftover cheese plate from invite-only wine tasting. That's it. No festive music. No holiday-themed treats. Oh, and it was scheduled at 3:30pm on a Thursday... when everyone is still working for their respective companies. 🤮2
If you're on the Threads page in Slack, why is there no keyboard shortcut to expand new messages and put your cursor in the text box?!?? Using the mouse is slowly killing me on the inside...4
I hope this may brighten your Friday slightly, fellow devRanters. My latest stupid creation: http://nyandagi.cat3
Me, rueing typescript: "Dammit, Typescript!"
Typescript's cheeky response: Type 'string' is not assignable to type "Dammit"
I was working as a contractor for a client who just got enough funding to hire a full-time dev. I lovingly referred to him as "Mr. Koolaid" because he was obsessed with whatever the newest hotness was and cried constantly about how the 3-year-old code-base didn't use The Next Big Thing(tm). This was my first interaction with him:
Mr. Koolaid: I'd like access to the github repository. My username is xxxx.
Me: We currently aren't hosting the code on github. If you send me your public ssh key, I'll get you access to the private server.
Mr. Koolaid: I'd like to access the github repository.
Me: It's not on github; send me your public key and I'll get you access.
Mr. Koolaid: Can we skype real quick? You don't need my public key to grant me access to the github repo.
*Mr. Koolaid proceeds to forward me github's documentation on adding users to an organization and the documentation for adding users to a private repo. The email is written in a very passive-aggressive tone.*
