If the requirements are this stringent in the job posting, I can't imagine how terrible it would be to work for this person.9
New dev hired to assist me told the boss that he was going to refactor the code to improve stability.
He converted all my fragments into activities. Because he didn't understand working with the back stack. Now everyone is asking me what happened.3
A year ago I was hired as a Jr dev to assist the senior dev because he was so busy. Within 2 months he was pushed out and I replaced him. I thought maybe he just got busy with other things or found a new job.
After working alone this past year, I was told last week that since I am so busy with things outside the job, they were hiring someone to help me finish the project I'm currently on.
(for context : I work as a contracted dev for a small dev company of 5 or so people. One for each language/os.)
I can't help but think that I'm probably being pushed out and replaced. I flat out asked that, but never got a reply. Now I'm 70% through a project and disgruntled with everything. Not sure how I'm supposed to feel really.
If they want to replace me for one reason or another that's fine, I just wish they weren't shady about it.
I should probably be working right now, but I'm going to take my kids to the pet store to clear my head. I'll enjoy a little time away from my computer.2
I always thought working remotely from home would be the dream. Now instead of a boss giving me shit, I get to listen to my girlfriend complaining about how much I work. God forbid I spend time doing something I enjoy.3
Copying code from stack overflow doesn't make you a developer. Knowing where to paste that code makes you a developer.2
Designer makes an app Mockup using an iOS template. I make the android version and the ios dev makes his version.
Upon completion, the client rejects mine saying that I forgot to put back buttons in the top left corner of each screen.
My face when he didn't reject the ios version for not having a hardware back button. 🤦♂️
Recently took over a freelance project to update an existing app, and this thing is full of comments like "TODO: Remove This" with no context. So hard to work with.
For the love of God, add some context to your comments. Especially if someone else is going to be seeing your code.
