I am fucking pissed off. Pissed off with lazy ass, incompetent developers, why the fuck are they even employed.
These two devs have been working together on some functionality for weeks, each for thier respective platform and I’ve been asked to join them, in order to complete the functionality for a third platform.
I spent one whole day trying to understand what state we were currently in, and I notice that it is not even in a state where I can begin.
I look further and notice these fucks decided to add dummy records in the database for a report.....
They are using the same table as a junction table and also as dummy records that receive results which a report can be generated from, I have spent 2 days trying to explain to them that is not good and that the table will grow very large due to dummy data being added every time an update is done.
I even offered a fucking solution but these fucks have to over complicate every fucking thing, every fucking time.
They finally agreed though, after me going through hell for two days.
I want to quit, I’m tired of working with these stupid fucking retards5
This developer at my company loves to criticise me - to make him self appear superior. Sometimes he’s ok, but a lot of the time he does what I can only describe as “scoffing”.
He didn’t understand what a parameterized query was, I explained it to him, and then he told me”I’m tying myself in knots” When I ask him how he would have done it better, no answer.
You don’t like how something is done and want it changed but offer no solution or when you do, you expect me to do the work.
It’s really draining me, having to deal with this every day.4
I added thousands or record to our test sql database and our web based product couldn’t handle it due to lazy loading all the records at once, but of course it’s my fault because I ‘overloaded the database’.......8
I want a future where all of these are ancient technology, we need to re think all of this stuff.
I’ve got a few ideas but it’s a long road.12
Someone’s argument against using a reverse proxy in front of our services, after I gave them some valid reasons to use one: “it adds an extra layer of complexity” and “that’s like going back to the 90’s” and “who’s going to support that”.
Drives me insane, fair enough if you’ve got a valid technical reason not to do it then fine, but come on.5
Does anyone else experience this?
One of my co-workers regularly breaks his Dev. Environment [on purpose]. I know it’s on purpose because he’s been seen by others doing it and caught out several times.
He then plays dumb and pretends he doesn’t know why it’s broken, so he can sit there reading the web/personal emails and eating, doing no work.
This really pisses me off.9
