AboutI sit and stare at the computer until the program starts to work. I rant on things that make me feel I'm alive. Confused soul.

Sit and dream about creating a product so one day it's first character is included in 'FANNG' like word.
2021 will be same i guess, listen to manager on conf calls, curse him while maintaining a smiling face, talk to clients and say yes to all requirements because now the manager thinks WFH is WFHeaven and in heaven time has no meaning.
Try to chill on weekends before the company decides to provides it's client "WeekendAsAService" package.
Word-Docu series :
The pandemic has made people WFH across the world. Humans, like other species are meant to find love by visual process. Pandemic has made it more worse making it virtual.
Now, what if there was male developer and female tester. The communication is limited, say once a week. But those communications spark the male's oxytocin levels. Emojis are used frequently in communications. Alas! All this is in official chat not other social media platforms.
In another situation, the female once proceeded to ask the male's phone number in official chat. Telephoned the male and explained the testing results she was expecting. The same could have been achieved in chat or by adding a offical meeting through chat application. This again sparked the nale's Oxytocin levels. This incident happened only once for fate had different story in store as the male and female were separated by different tasks for now. Developer developing something entirely different than what Tester would test.
Also the female's profile, keeps popping up in Instagram's "People you may now". Thus everytime the male opens Instagram he sees the female's face only to fall into more confused state of whether to send follow request or not.
The male species in this world have forever been locked into the world of "send request", "get accepted" and "get ignored". So our male speciman feels bit down, and discouraged when he thinks of taking the route to catch up with the female.
As with all female species, this too has a private account.
Thus, in this short documentary we see that all singles are stuck with less options than they had before.5
Is it just me or when your brain is going through code in the background while you are talking on a video call and then you do a typo in the private chat message and the receiver suddenly thinks you are an idiot!2
Craziest prep for interview :
Step 1 : Given sufficient time for the scheduled interview by any company, start by searching "How to prepare for Google interviews". Awe at the information before you and get all pumped up to jump in.
Step 2 : Starting with Algorithms, study each one and try not to mix any of them in confusion. In case you are stuck in whiteboard coding, close your eyes, take deep breath and visualize Don Kunth. If that doesn't help, well you are ruined anyway.
Step 3: Practice coding without internet connection, till you are able to write code while you talk about how the weather is really great today. Libraries and methods should flow like poetry. SO is sin.
Step 4: The X programming language which you added to your resume because you can write Hello World, head over to Wikipedia and read more about it just in case.
Step 5: Read some xkcd comics so you can impress the interviewer with some humor. You can try Dilbert too.
It was a liberating feeling when I realized that Quantum Computing is not gonna make my Netflix(or any other) experience better, but probably help solve some difficult computing problems like TSP....4
Any Elixir devs out there ?
I started learning Elixir to explore distributed computing.
Need more inputs.1
*sees a new tech/framework/language*
*dives straights to download just checking for windows/mac/linux*
*downloaded product doesn't start/gives error/complains because some prerequisites are not met*
*after some frustration it starts to work*
*To not offend the Gods, writes "Hello World"*
*Carry a "Hackerman" face all day*
Many decades ago, people thought about future by writing stories and making movies with flying cars and made up technology beyond belief but what we got today are food ordering apps and dating apps.
Well, its good those cars never came out, because I would rather order food at home and watch Netflix than fly around.3
If you want to set off and go develop some grand new thing, you don’t need millions of dollars of capitalization. You need enough pizza and Diet Coke to stick in your refrigerator, a cheap PC to work on and the dedication to go through with it. ~John Carmack3
Back to devRant after a long break.
Neither made the world a better place like Sillicon Valley,
Nor was busy fighting monsters like Witcher,
For the Kings and Queens who make more,
Whom the clients keep throwing Gold,
Was stuck in a project like soldiers in GOT,
Following JIRAs for my honor.4
What's your take on Blockchain as Solution to existing problems?
Do developers like us, have potential if we moved into Blockchain related development?5
Internet is fluctuating in our office.
The network team sent out an email of unscheduled outage.
I thought of replying back,
"Have you tried turning it off and on again".1
Java 12 is here.
Why so many releases now.
It was good earlier, years taken for next release.
Atleast we could update our resumes properly.16
Unscheduled meetings are the worst.
You preparing whole day to leave early for the day, then manager suddenly puts up an unscheduled meeting. Oh great isn't it!!2
10 years ago I was learning how to program in college,
Now working in IT company I stare at Excel Sheets and scratch my head.
If you keep seeing your watch, while ignoring your laptop time display, then it's time for you to logout of office.
My first post of 2019.
One month to Valentine's Day, Last year's was spent with beer, the pervious with her. This year I want to spend with her and beer.
I somehow feel I will get neither.3
I fucking hate it when the manager comes up with an idea in his head. For him, the idea is the coolest because he itrated over it many times, but you shit fuck the idea needs to run when you transform it into code. Did u think about it?!
No, whatever it is, developers will figure out a way. Fuck off!!4
So this manager told me we need to build accelerator. What's an accelerator. He told that it some how manages Microservices.2
Long long ago, I had a dream to start a startup.
Till today I'm not able to find an idea.
Then, I realized ideas cannot be forced. They come when they come.7
