Just had the best moment of my career today. Myself and two of my colleagues have been working on this system (firmware, hardware, web app etc) together and after months of hard work we finally saw it all in action.
My colleague turned on a device on the web site and it updated the db, turned on a light on his board and updated the devices state on the site (we use web sockets so it's real time).
I probably haven't did it justice here but it was flipping awesome!1
Out of interest does anyone else have a Microsoft keyboard, and does it just die (requiring it to be plugged out and in again) every now and again? I honestly thought VS and Outlook were bad until I got this piece of crap5
Does any other front-end developer have the fear that we'll run out of handy words or phrases for JS frameworks and have to import massively long sentences to use what we need?6
True story: My old boss once got told by his boss and our 'General Manager' (we think he self titled himself haha) that he shouldn't read technical books as "you don't want people thinking you're smarter than them".
Couldn't believe it. Imagine trying to improve your knowledge, seemed revolutionary in that place1
In the last place I worked myself and my team wanted to write a couple of tests for some edge cases on our site. The response from our 'General Manager' was "we're not IBM" and that we had to be (our similar sized company I assumed) to write tests.
Needless to say I got outta there as quickly as I could!
Anyone else ever have a boss not understand what you do so they give you 'busy' work instead?
Then also don't understand why you don't know how to do it
