I did get a raise but we also hired like 5 new people... But I still do the same amount of work... Which was already too much...13
I should invest in Apple again... Google keeps doing things in Android that keep pissing me off.... And probably others too and well the only alternative is iOS...
GOOD JOB... your killing your own brand and ecosystem....23
How do you seize crypto if it's anonymous? Secure?
Just need to catch someone logging in?
TGIF... And once again solved another issue brought up by another dev by just reading the javadocs on the problematic Spring annotation
How senior do you need to be to finally learn the first step to solving most problems is to RTFM....2
Was recently asked if our team wanted to change from Java to Kotlin so I looked over the feature lists but don't see much that's impressive.
One argument was less boilerplate code but I think they're are libraries like Lomboq that can write that stuff for you.
The other was smart type casting and type inference and to that I'm like this sounds like giving monkeys a hammer.
Our JS codebase looks like shit... And our Java app just crashed in prod.
Getting a ton of text messages this morning and thankfully I'm on vacation still...
The error is not caused by NPE... but how some or logic spammed the db..
A new language isn't going to fix this.... And a team that writes this sort of shit logic clearly shows they are incapable of learning a new one probably...
They are already script kiddies... Don't need them to become babies...6
Why is it that I'm some able to get things working only after I make a guess complaining to technical support about how it's not working...
And it seems no one else has raised the issue.3
Having another "what the fuck was I thinking" moment after wasting 3 wks and $60 on another mobile game...
There's no point to this game... Is an infinite clicker basically...
Must be the alliance element and bring asked to be the temp leader...
I knew I should've declined... now always thinking how to give it back to him...7
Fox Business: Coinbase preps Dogecoin listing.
TLDR: more fake money!
There's more and more assets being created in the crypto economy," Armstrong said during the call. "I think it's going to be something kind of like apps in the App Store on the iPhone, where there's eventually millions of these assets created over time, and so we're putting a lot of work and thought into how do we accelerate our pace of asset addition."
Ah.... Just saw a message in team chat that we had a prod issue caused by the use of a hack/duct tape solution...
Dev just replied "as a fix I will do it the right way"
Me thinking: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I told you so... Now you learned it the hard way7
Just spent 30 mins (in bed at 5am) thinking how to improve a mongodb collection sync process from a basic script I wrote years ago to a cleaner Java process.
But then asked myself why.... WHY THE DUCK SHOULD I TAKE THE INITIATIVE TO IMPROVE SOMETHING THAT I WILL RARELY NEED TO USE BUT WOULD MAKE ALL THE MONKEYS JOBS ON MY TEAM A LOT EASIER
NO ONE ELSE TAKES INITIATIVE, WHY THE DUCK SHOULD I...
THEY DON'T LISTEN TO WHAT I SAY EITHER...
Or I could just not share my toys anymore... Watch while everyone else toils in misery...2
So Amazon recruiter followed up today... So I just replied,
Thanks but not interested anymore, easier being a shareholder5
New guy on my team keeps on saying "oops" and acts like a newb...
He's an experienced dev tho... Like 10yrs...
FML... HOW THE FUCK DID MY BOSS DECIDE TO HIRE HIM...
And then this afternoon I decided to look at internal mobility... all the postings (there were only a few even though we're supposed to be hiring like crazy this year) had descriptions that required experience in everything
Do you want me to move or not ...
"Things here are so much better than before" ... my ass...
The b*tch strikes again.... "Oh I dunno talk to the new guy I just trained"
Maybe I just hate my term now it need a vacation...2
1. Business users and their sudden issues that need immediate fixing
2. Other devs responsible for their app on the team that can't get their shit straight
"Steam doesn’t allow publishers to sell PC games and game keys for less money elsewhere"
So how come I can get cdkeys for some of they same games from online discount shops?
What does a bitcoin mining puzzle have to do with verifying transactions/driving consensus across nodes?
The winner just gets to write? The next block but doesn't that mean he is like admin, he can make up all the transactions he wants?23
Just got another email from Amazon recruiting. I deleted it but then thought of a response...
I've found preparing for your interviews and the chance of me getting through is so time consuming and so low that it's better use of my time and effort (way easier) just buying your shares and profiting off the results of whoever you actually hire.4
I hate dealing with (business) users... They keep asking why...
You're the fucking ppl that told me this is what u want a year or two ago...
Where can I find a job where its mostly dev and not answering why every day?4
Hm...I would except since COVID started, moved back to my parents, so use my dad's laptop for work... He uses it on weekends.6
How is it possible to read a zipped text file (Ie. zgrep) without first extracting the whole thing?10
Business team has been chasing an issue with a report we generate, which I've sort of been dragged into because I worked on a loader for data they need.
Another guy is responsible though for the report and they had a meeting with user to iron out it last week...
I would expect the guy to ask me for guidance, essentially needs to rewrite it duplicate the loader but haven't heard a peep from him...
I guess I'll let him deal with his own shit and extricate myself from their discussion
Developers making up words so they and their friends can win Scrabble... Or get foreign words into mainstream?
Pretty sure that word and definition is korean... Can find it in Webster's online...15
