"Developer code must ensure that IAsyncDisposable implementations don't take a long time to complete."
Ah yes, the very technical "long time" unit of measurement. God why don't you just go fuck yourself microsoft7
a lot of devs just don't have the first clue of what they are doing
they haven't put in the work
they'll blame absolutely everything else (language, framework, pattern, etc.) instead of actually putting in the work and making it easier for themselves
contrarian dev guru types are just losers who couldn't make it in industry or business with their (lack) of skills, but are so sour and embittered they continue to shovel their own garbage on everyone else
god its just so annoying "oh i do it only this way, and its the RIGHT way, you must do it this way"
this UI feature that literally exists everywhere else? "oh no those are bad, no one uses it and its not a best practice"
get the fuck out of my way, you're just slowing me down3
"blazor is far better than any other frontend framework"
ah yes, very nice and easy to grok syntax
so they are really out there...
people who beleive C# is just the one source of truth and all other languages are just garbage
sad to be so ignorant - though i guess ignorance is bliss
to be clear: I use C# like anyone else, but it's just a tool in the toolkit, that's all13
Let me begin by saying I knew the jist of the announcment before even reading the CeO's LeTteR... though it's comically and ironically far worse than I could have even expected
this is absolutely an 100% genuine rant from the bottom of my heart
Just go absolutely fuck yourself, your devs, and your entire org. Imma call it right now and say Udemy as a company won't be around in a mere 10 years. (easy to say this actually; the average lifetime of a company in general on the stock market is 18 years, with a garbage shit pile like Udemy i can guarantee its less than that)
oh, but their stock was up 38% on friday on good earnings... wonder how they did that
"But why!?!?!? Why are all creators going to tiktok and youtube?!?!?" - Udemy CEO mouthbreather
stupid fuck, maybe take a lesson from a 1st grader and get educated
people think devs are bad? Oh, its about to get a whole lot worse. there's no motivation anymore for skilled devs to build valuable courses, more and more junior devs using outdated spit out shit information from IdiotGPT, and a destruction of number of people on stackoverflow, asking the same 10 questions over and over again...
oh how the times have changed...4
learning blazor for the new job...
i know everyone here hates mac and therefore everything microsoft = good so i'm expecting thousands of upvotes
(i secretely harbor the idea it's like a more modern PHP but you didn't hear that from me)5
ah udemy updating their "terms and conditions" on how they do revenue sharing... either the corp or the creator is going to get fucked... can you guess which one?
and no i don't want to read a dumbass letter from your dumbass CEO to find out how your going to fuck me... shame that your org has to hide it that way
just give me the brass tax you robber barons2
god remind me to never work with an education software company again
first, they didn't even know my course has been done for months, like, does anyone look at what your company produces?
then, they completely change the intro page and wording, have to reado that, its anyway a wall of text which they probably smugly think is good for SEO, *WRONG*, if every page is formatted nearly the same with some words swapped out you for sure are PENALIZED, not rewarded... clueless clowns
and NOW, I need exactly to-the-pixel dimensional images????? wtffffffffff
all for a course that *MIGHT* bring in something like $500... *MIGHT*
I mean for these courses it's more important about giving back and helping the community, but asking this much paper pushing busy work bullshit that you know won't even amount to an hourly wage north of something like $2... it's just not worth it anymore
well, fuck... how about everything that works in visual studio but feels like garbage in VS Code???
don't get my wrong I use VS Code for every other language... but C# has just always felt better in visual studio than in VS Code. oh well17
incredible how many clowns are out there... saw a guy asking about "blocks" and "plugins" on reddit about gatsby... what is this, 2001 with PHP? GTFO or learn your shit, its clear you are an absolute clown. its 2023, nothing is hard unless you make it hard (deep truth that only the good ones will understand; stubborn idiots will remain stubborn and bitter)
i'm too wasted too put in tags; you already know what they would be
on the bright side, rewatched harry potter 1... damn i gotta reread the books again, fucking classic stuff
inb4 jk rowling haters; you'll never even have a thousandth of her genius you stupid illiterate fucks
i'll die on this hill infinite times like fucking edge of tomorrow7
its absolutely insane to me how many orgs out there have a "oh we don't know what that does, but don't touch it" peice of software9
remember that company that ghosted me after I spent 2 hours taking 2 "aptitude" tests for them?
or the EIGHT HOUR challenge I wasted my time on because the guy said I didn't know enough redux, even though they were the ones completely overcomplicating (and frankly bastardizing) its usage? oh also imagine using sagas in 2023... fucking 🤡clowns🤡 get with the program, glad i wasnt hired by you, good luck finding a competant dev
yeah, was good times...1
guy taking one of my courses is wondering why bitbucket can't reach his local machine address at 192.168.0.13 😂
(and inb4 annoying rubes like sidtheitkid or whoever), in the lesson I CLEARLY explain the steps of local IP -> router -> public IP -> internet, as well as the port forwarding / routing needed
I love this place, its like our own little corner of the internet that the rubes will never even know of or understand
I just auto charged myself because I forgot I tested my 7 day trial in production last week

god this is getting repetitive, how can we spam the spammers? wasn't there a site like "send your enemies glitter"? classic!
i guess this is what I get for putting my company email public
but really, what happened to gmail's spam filter? should spot ones like these from miles away7
fffffuuuuuu i've forgotten how some of my software works / runs
time to waste hours in the archives...
hey guess what
commenting "I have this problem too!" does absolutely nothing for a github thread. ABSOLUTELY nothing.
you are bad and you should feel bad
if my udemy course is too complicated for you
no reason to give it a shitty rating
you're just an idiot19
would i like the glenfidditch 12 year for 45 EUR?
or the laphroaig 10 year for 50 EUR?
seems like a no-brainer to me (and trust me, i have NO brain)
inb4 fullstackcircus is an alcoholic, we already know that
go hang out with the OTHER hacktoberfest participants and tell me something i don't know10
I've been contacted by tutorialspoint 3 different times by 3 different people
I already have courses on tutorialspoint
bitter reflections from a bitter dev on hacktoberfest this year (in the past 2 hours of trying to find issues my IQ has at least halved):
- DefinitelyTyped - used to be my bread and butter to complete hacktoberfest; now, not sure if actual issue, or person just doesn't know how to use typescript (found a multiple such issues that were actually non-issues, the type they were asking for was right there, no pull request needed)
- avoid "issues" on no code / low code tools, these are toxic issues with titles like "I EXPLAIN BUG HERE", then probably not even a bug / more a feature request or clueless clown
- if your entire contributor team has the same character styled profile pic + background, i can't take you seriously; if your identity is so closely tied with what github team you are on... uh, i mean cmon what is this kindergarten? (also love the fact that an anon managed to get themselves mixed in hahahaha they ruined it perfectly!)
- most 'hacktoberfest' issue finders themselves are broken or don't load anything
- people claim issues and then never return YAWN
- the hacktoberfest discord: the projects channel is mostly people promoting their garbage repo WHICH HAS 0 OPEN ISSUES IN THE FIRST PLACE AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA and then OTHER people promoting their own portfolio on hacktoberfest???!! 😂😂😂😂 yeah bro i'm gonna help you with your own portfolio site GTFO
from what i've seen, i think i can start working approximately 5 minutes a day and be more successful than these absolute 🎪🤡🤹♂️ devs
sure, there is being a beginner, and there is being a clown salesmen trying to get people to do work for you... i mean wtf is going on
i WANT to help and contribute, but this year its really a struggle to find anything worthwhile to contribute to!
somehow the spark is gone... this might be my last Hacktoberfest... let me just return to my wisky and be in peace4
attempting to write 3 broker integrations for my fintech product today: TD Ameritrade, Tradier, and TradeStation...
starting with just the most basic possible: live bid / ask price, then will go from there...
will report back
will likely fail
i think kobenz is borderline autistic
he claims he built a predictor of dollar "exchange rate" price (didn't mention against which currency - warning bells), if this were true he wouldn't be on this site...
THEN he claims he built a "framework" like React in 500 LOC...
lotta trolls on this site, beware...5
potential client, wondering why i don't answer any of his messages or calls: "I hope I haven't done anything wrong!?"
yeah dude, continually calling me MULTIPLE times after 5PM on friday (second friday in a row) is one way to "do something wrong"
these "business" types know no bounds2
