require() from requirejs, I can't believe the monoliths I used to write as a newbie.
I think I've actually dropped a few IQ points as my code has been spectacularly simple since.
Inspired by devRant, sent this to a person with a new Apple Watch:
"Hi there, what ar....[read more]"
Suggestion: Polls? Either user supplied or put up like the weekly rant.
I think it'd be fun/interesting with all these captive devs.
Perhaps earned every 500++ or so to avoid spam.
How many developers does it take to change a lightbulb?
One, because developers are sensible and rational people.5
Writing volumes of pure magic code in that weird state between tired and super tired.
Sleeping pills + redbull?
Question: where on the web can you post questions that do solicit debate (the anti SO)?
I want an opinion on something from outside my own development sphere that likely does not have a right answer.
I've tried Quora but they want permissions to manage my contacts (which is just too scary for me).
Thanks in advance.23
Developers in need 2016 appeal.
With just one recommendation of an IDE with syntax highlighting, you can change the life of a needy developer.
Together we can bring an end to semicolon hunting.
Let's stop the madness now.6
So it looks like the Britain is leaving the EU. Who the fuck are these people in my country?
Feel sick right now.
Developer skill #906: Tactical Sleep.
"Sure, I'll build you a landing page for your email campaign ...... For 10am tomorrow? ....... But it's 4:30pm....... Director says so?..... (Silent fml)"
Ask me earlier douchebags.
There once was a dev who was a believer,

He argued with zest,
That drag and drop was best;
So I murdered him to death with a cleaver.10

public void Init_WowEnthusiasmPlusMeeting_fml()
Day monday = new Day(
int startingTaskCount = monday.Tasks.Count();
monday.AddMeeting(new Meeting(duration: 7.5));
// Assert fml
Chrizzle.Mojo == 0

Spent this week working React into one of my projects. Works fine but I don't see Any real productivity gains over modular typescript with a good js view engine.
Does it get better?3
So I recently made myself do a quiet madman chuckle to my IDE when I found I was implementing an Interface I'd created with the method signature GetLinking() misspelled as GetLionking()
Anyone else catch themselves doing the private office weirdo laugh?2
When you introduce support for MVC projects into a webforms application you've been working with for 4 years and it takes about 3 hours.
I love my job as a developer, I think it's the one of the world's most most fulfilling occupations but I procrastinate with personal projects (even paid ones). Is this a problem for anyone else, and how do you beat this?6
