In my opinion, you may try a different approach? Hope me experience helps.
I also work in a small company in which i am the only developer. But i focused on setting the terms and pace at all times. Example:If you want x it takes y time only if no prioriy emerges. And i am always clear on which project I'm working on. And the current order of priorities.
I personally asked to work at home. I talked about how distractions negatively affect performance (but working at home may not be for everyone).
My point try to show you are the person who knows the most of how it works and learn to say no to unreasonable request by rules you set.
Unfortunately i suffer from the second part of your issue. I have no one to share ideas with...
Well... It's really a problem of the people not to be interested in the question...
SO is being supportive haha
Tag: "i don't masturbate to code"
Me: "i am disappointed"
In a way...
You got to be a technology psicologist..
Got payed for listening someone else's problems..
From my perspective... Depending on the pay and conditions I would apply.
I currently work in a company which product is mainly an online app and at the same time i am the only developer and everyone else is technology impaired.
I take all the implementation decisions, timetables, work at home...
I have much responsibility and freedom in a weird way...
For everyone else i am like a magician who appears sporadically, solves the issues and then disappears.
The only thing i wonder if this language uses tabs, spaces or hotdog for indentation...
They were not ready for this amount of success...
No body has clicked it before.
I only came here wondering how many statements would it require to terminate a life, but the comments became so relevant in terms of different scenarios in which it may be relevant.
I really enjoy this community, always sharing knowledge.
@RakNoel a very pessimistic view of the future.
Sadly share it with you.
Never before so many humans will be removed from work as fast I'm the next few years.
I never thought of the psicological toll, only I'm the economical one.
I can't see anything but inequality in the future.
People adapt so much slower than machines to learn a new trade.
And even then, if everybody chases careers like IT, saturation of market will inevitably make these jobs to lower income.
I really hope someone smart to come with a solution on the long run, because i really believe that the current view of everything will become unsustainable in the short run.
Isn't it easier to paint from white?
I want to print something and I wonder if the original color matters.
@Voxera that sounds pretty interesting.
At the end proves habits are hard to lose.
@tobbr your comment is so pre 2010.
Usbs are no longer auto executed since a win 7 patch, and flash?
Well I still wouldn't use Windows for hosting...
Yeah! Less separation of functionality...
I still can't stand the html in js...
Well, now I am wondering what you guys talked during lunch...
I believe that my framework is good, but I haven't written any documentation.
You simply don't get it, clearly it's a flash reference.
I let my self out
You will learn far more from building from scratch.
And usually by doing by hand the result is a smaller file size so is more efficient.
Don't take this the wrong way...
But hopefully no-one will see it.
Or are you creating broken links so people admire your work?
@daredevil yeah i totally agree.
I can explain how everything works, guess what i need to achieve a design, but if you ask me for a lineal gradient I'll need to ask Google.
I don't have anything against node.js (I don't like js in backend though), but in this case using yahoo, which has been in the brink of extinction for years, paypal which is despised by developers and Walmart which is a terrible company to prove your point is terrible advertising...
Netflix is ok.
When you have years of experience, you learn how to achieve your design with less guesses...
@ScribeOfGoD I do believe the main reasons behind using IE are not based in consumer preference but in external factors.
For example business policies. In this case since "the internet works" they use default setup and workers are unable to choose. If for any reasons the internet should stop working the productivity lowers and policies may need to change.
In public computers the logic may be the same.
In the case of inexperienced users who don't know better a nice explanation accompanied with links in how to solve the issue (as we did with flash) may be a solution.
@Kolyness no, fuck 'em
What if we make all the internet incompatible with IE so we force them to switch policies.
@nickpapoutsis are they... All?
My point isn't against open software nor closed software is against generalization and taking things for granted.
Sometimes we assume too much.
Ex: "it's open source and everyone is using it, it must be better than x."
At the same time, I don't mean to be rude. Apologies if you thought it was a direct comment against you.
@nickpapoutsis I believe people confuse security and open source.
In the way "we believe someone capable has checked", but in reality between human error and the small amount of people who actually check, things like heart bleed might happen again.
And using internet explorer!
This post is the prime example of "first world problems"...
50GBs? Of data?
Even removing everything coding related or even thinking it may be a genius who doesn't need tutoring... this guy is a manipulator. I find these kind of people among the most toxic since with no doubt turn people against each others just for personal benefit.
Hope you get rid of him only for that reason only.
@agus24 and now you want to fix this mistake in production?
My input may not be a direct tip, but hopefully food for thought.
At a management perspective the more you produce and the lower you cost, the better. Since you are more profitable.
At a bigger scope, if you charge low for your work you are demeriting everyone's equivalent job, since even if you leave them, they will try to replace you with someone just as profitable (aka, low cost, high output). If everyone does that, the"value" of our trade decreases, since everyone would devalue their work.
I do believe, you could do better, since it seems you have the experience. Either change the way you work, or you place of work.
