Best girl i've met.
I attended a CMS Conference last month(I don't use a CMS, i'm just interested with the topics about DevOps and UI/UX). I met this pretty lady ( I find her cute and awesome.) who's one of the speaker, she talked about design principles and applying it to BEM with SASS. After the talk, i asked her some questions about her dev't workflow like what tools she used and some best practices. Our conversation went well and exchange some of our knowledge and ideas also i introduced her to devrant (She's a wordpress user, i showed to her how the community hates WP, idk if she registered). After her talked we separated ways and ended seeing again after the conference as she's looking for a cab going to a mall (Same directions where i'm heading to), We talked again and decided to have dinner together. I felt like she's the best girl i met as she's into TV shows i like (Silicon Valley and Mr Robot). We added ourselves in FB and saying goodbye to each other. After a week or two, i just found out that she already into a relationship and it broke my heart.
I guess im back to the start, but i'm happy that i made a new friend.15
With the new technologies & trends right now, how do you convince yourself not to ride the HYPE train or the bandwagon?
* I have friends from different companies who talked to me about their stack, like "We're using INSERT_JS_FRAMEWORK_OR_LIBRARY_HERE ... It's very cool."
A simple advice or a thought would do.1
I just realized that i can do better in designing websites without bootstrap or other CSS frameworks. Thanks to CSS GRID. FTW4
**Reflecting on my life and current workload**
rm -rf new_project.3
There are things that i wish i didn't see.
Yesterday, i went to a coffee shop to relax and reviewing my works. And suddenly a college friend of mine approach me and we started talking about work.
Me: So, What do you do at work? What's your stack?
Him: Not much of a new. Still working with wordpress, html,css and jquery.
So he started talking about how cool wordpress is and how he generates money doing sites.
Me: Can i see your sample works?
Him: Sure, *opens his shitty windows laptop with Web Tech stickers*. and handover his laptop to me.
Me: Woah. the design is so neat (I'm lying). But it's freaking slow man(REALLY FVCKING SLOW).
* I decided to open the devTools and inspected the source code. And I can't believe what i saw.
- 20+ images with 2~4mb file size
- CDN's of bootstrap, foundation and semantic UI
- LOTS OF FVCKING PLUGINS
* I didn't told him what i saw. I just turn over the laptop to him and finish my coffee.
Him: My sites are cool right? I have a lot of pending projects right now. Easy money Bruh!
Me: Wow. *sips* coffee. and say goodbye to him and walkout.
I FEEL BAD FOR HIS CLIENTS!4
I had difficulty in passing one of my programming subjects during college because of my teacher(3~5years older than me). She's a pretty lady and always wearing lose shirts, I'm on the front row seats, so i always get distracted and can't focus on lectures and exams.
After that semester, i was happy that she's not my teacher anymore. LOL.2
There's a workshop here in Philippines about Sprint Design & it is based from this book.
Any of you guys read this book?
Does the concepts/ideas in the book helped you in your work/personal projects?2
*Dev in his 40's from our counter-part office.
Me: Here's my SSH keys.
Dev: What's this?
Me: SSH keys. Give me access to the repository.
Dev: We don't use any version control here. Let's just use FTP or Remote Desktop and just download the codes.19
Searched for JS/NodeJs frameworks.
Read the Docs for a couple of minutes and run some examples.
*Opens* CV / Linkedin to update Skillset.
So with the count of JS/Nodejs Frameworks, they probably have lots skills listed in their CV.2
Downside of being a developer without design skills & creativity.
Yesterday, i created a simple food ordering app for our office. I shared it to my dev colleagues and got a decent feedback (except for the new hire). But when shared it to people like writers and graphic designers. I feel a bit off.
Graphic D: "The app should not use a blue color scheme. because blue is an UNAPPETIZING COLOR", "The yellow color is too vibrant"
Writers: They are blabbing about the grammar and spellings :(
New Hired Dev: Can you share me the codes?
** I always trying to learn how to do webdesign but i think its not really for me :(8
2017 Front End development anyone?
I was looking for a devRant CLI so that i can browse rants anytime at work. Instead i saw this.
My friend had this screen saver or have "hacker type" site opened, with a hoodie on, so that no one can suspect him sleeping. Hahah Any tips for him to use in the future?4
I'm looking for ways to focus on coding. So, yesterday i deactivated my facebook and it seems life is more productive now.9
Got a freelance job, I need to make a websites for doctors (3-5 pages + mostly static pages). Should i use a CMS? Please don't say WordPress.11
A convo with my !dev colleague.
Her: Can i use your PC for a while?
Me: Yeah sure.
Her: Why is this so wierd? Why i can't refresh?
Me: It's Ubuntu.
Her: Man, this sucks, you should use windows 10, it's the latest!
End of Convo.
After that day, i heard her talking to my other colleague.
Her: "Go ask him. The one with the weird PC."
SHOULD I KILL HER?22
I was hired as JS Dev, done some projects with Angular and Node, after several months my boss told me to maintain a FUCKING PHP webapp with no documentation and shitty codebase. After he saw the results, he told me *man, you got some potential*, and he assigned me to build websites using wordpress(WTF is he thinking!). I thought that was the last time he would do something ridiculous, Yesteday he asked me if i can do Video Animation(After Effects)!!5
