Currently we have zero time for R&D at work, now I have convinced management to let me try and convince them to arrange some time per week/sprint(2 weeks) or month
How should I approache this? And how much time would be optional (enough time for prototyping but still leave more than enough time for the projects we have) ?
Any tips that you have for negotiation/convincing management would be greatly appreciated!! 😁😁3
This is such a nice community, let's not behave like (or even turn into) the stack overflow community and bitch on each others code 😇13
Every time I think
"Who the fuck coded this peace of garbage"
And then git blame the file
Only to see that it was me... 3+ months ago3
Progress on my blog (incocast) goes smoothly, even implemented a basic rss feed. Currently the blog is Service Layer only (because I still have to create a front-end)
It might even be interesting to open some api calls to the public... I don't know yet.. Maybe..
Either way the next thing to implement is a commenting system! :)
I've been working for two days (after work) on my blog idea...
Man I forgot how fun it is to work on your own projects, and the stuff I learn at the moment... It is insane!
I am currently a very happy developer, hopefully I can keep this up.
I still have to look into automated unit testing and code formatting checks with github though, cant wait!
I'm thinking about starting my own blog, where I can post my research and/or opinions on...
Though my private projects have a bad reputation I still think I might try one again and see if it works11
As of late I'm creating private game servers on my local network in my free time for fun / relaxing
I've already running:
a World of Warcraft vanilla;
Travian version 3;
And I am currently working on a conquer online private server, but getting the right client for it is the hard part...5
This morning I had an update to my one plus 3t
I now have face unlock...
And the latest (almost every few months) Android security updates
This is how software should be, this is how phone manufacturers should utilize their os, not by slapping some heavyweight skin on it. But by keeping it stock with added features. And when the time is right new features, most importantly security updates1
I was typing a rant about this deadlines of a legacy project I have to work on but I'm just too tired/stressed/angry todo so... Maybe in a week or two when the fucker is finally done...1
Almost burnout story? What about right now...
Customer was really positive about the new site we are creating for them then, out of the blue panic, they complain about features (calculations) which aren't implemented yet (they didn't provide any information for the calculation until 1 week ago.) And they complain that the site does not has any content
THAT IS RIGHT YOU DUMB FUCKS...
I can't magically create content for YOUR site...
Hmm weird, my devrant app stops working it I attach an image?
(Yes, devrant does have permission to access my storage)5
After work he went home and never came back ... Extremely annoying because he didn't told us what he promised the customer...
Pls never do this...
With the new Dutch mass surveillance law comming soon, I am interested to know what you are doing with it?
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I don't live in the Netherlands?20
- having enough experience to be called a medior / senior
- finishing my open source password manager api1
I'm currently cleaning it up...

For all the privacy focused people out there, Cloudflare and APnic announced (about 2 days ago) that they created a privacy-first super fast dns server (18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124)
If I can, drop that what ever i'm working on and work on something else
if that's not an option painfully keep working on that, when i'm done or when the day ended reward myself by watching YouTube/rewatch a marvel tv show
Simple but effective.
Sooo I have this problem with my laptop (Ubuntu 16.04) and I have no idea what is wrong or how I can fix it.
I cant use the internet when i am connected through WiFi... I've tried a couple of things but it didn't work. Then @linuxxx told me to try and ask here for advice / solutions ☺
I found a useful network info script so I used that to gather the following info :
Please dev rant, you're my only hope15
That moment you solved something without Stack overflow and/or the official Docs... That realisation made my day ☺
Feeling more and more like a medior! (I am a junior) I might even program in my spare time again! It has been a while... I can't wait 😍😍4
The company i work for has a jenkins server (for people that don't know jenkins, it's an automated build service that gets the latest git updates, pulls them and then builds, tests and deploys it)
Because it builds the software, people were scared to update it so we were running version 1.x for a long time, even when an exploit was found... Ooh boy did they learn from that...
The jenkins server had a hidden crypto miner running for about 5 days...
I don't know why we don't have detectors for that stuff... (like cpu load being high for 15 minutes)
I even tried to strengthen our security... You know basic stuff LIKE NOT SAVING PASSWORDS TO A GOOGLE SPREADSHEET! 😠
But they shoved it asside because they didn't have time... I tried multiple times but in the end i just gave up...13
Tbh this is more about education in general... Introduce the same system i had, no fixed lessons just a project and a time frame. Eg : create your own MVC framework and a site to show it off
Time frame : 5 weeks
(dont expect fully fletched frameworks but a site that uses the MVC data flow and the code is reusable)2

So for the space fanatics here who didn't knew. SpaceX will launch their falcon heavy rocket today Can't wait 😊25
ALRIGHT sorry SwiftKey I love you but not if you do this to me... I need a new keyboard any recommendations? (android)
(also the accuracy is quite bad as of late...)23
Not sure if it's my first encounter, but definitely the most memorable, when I was young we had a windows xp pc (quite new at the time) and we had a program called Nero burn (used to burn images to cd's)
The pictogram of neo burn was a pc on fire, and so I thought for the duration of my xp time that that program would blow up the pc if I ever started it...
Bought a new hard drive, it's great and all BUT WHY DIDN'T THEY INCLUDE A SATA CABLE!!??
now I have to order a SATA cable and wait 2/3 days -.- I just wanted to increase my home server storage...3
