About#androiddev #womenwhocode My shift has ended. Here we go again. Time to feel depressed, isolated, and suicidal. I wish I don't feel exhausted nor tired so I can just code and code and code without distraction. Will prolly commit suicide tonight idk

Ah yes. It's that time of the year where we answer dev surveys again: https://research.hackerrank.com/sur...2
Already done exercise and my other night rituals. Thinking of going into a nearby computer rental shop outside my apartment, just so I could code one of my open source libraries or play video games. I would have hauled my PC build here but I live in a rather sketchy part of town.
I can't sleep, and I am really alone right now.
Maybe I should have just sought out charity psychiatric wards and just lock myself into one until I recover fully. I should have listened to my therapist. I should not have begun work and concentrated on therapy first.
Absolutely curse everything tbh. My new job is the only thing I am looking forward to at this point as it is the most stimulating experience I am getting, by way of DevOps and new things about Agile that I know nothing of. It's easy to forget that you have major depression if you're distracted.
Boyfriend is asleep. So is family. So are everyone else. Who do I pester?5
So that's why I got no pedestal in the office yet.
We're transferring into a swankier office space with a nicer view of the Manila airport.
Yes yes potato camera. I'll get a DSLR. Relax.5
Hmm maybe I should start hanging out with my coworkers after work. The isolation in my apartment is gripping. I feel like I am going mad. 🙃
I could swear I am starting to see black cockroaches and flying spiders at the corner of my eye whenever I drift to sleep, and it's never a good sign.
Perhaps a book? Or a video game? I'm told God of War on PS4 is good stuff...
I should have brought my gold refining experiment with me... I can't sleep.
Oooor I'd resume my magnetic wall charger project tonight...? Except that I don't even know where the breaker is and I might burn my apartment.
Mmm imagine the news: Android developer dies in a freak fire accident.2
Just a couple of rants before i begin tonight's Great Silence:
1) The only thing I don't like about my new job this far is the fact that they take too long to let me make a repository in our company's Azure DevOps account. How am I supposed to collaborate with my teammates then?
Well sike you guys then, I made a private repo with just our teammates while we tie up the pipeline to the Azure DevOps.
2) I really would want a compile-time Kodein instead of Dagger. I really do.
3) So you say without irony that coding is an evil modernist profession and real trads do not code? You diss me for my choice of lipstick (actually just matte of my natural lip color)? You call yourself a Roman Catholic Traditionalist when all you did was go to TLM in a three piece suit for a couple of months and say the Rosary in Latin? Bitch I out-trad you! I chant the Divine Office, 1962, pre-1955, and pre-1910. Throw in Hymni Antiqui and a couple of Ambrosian chants, you are on! I went to an iconography class, an Ignatian Retreat, and I am about to have a temporary profession with the Third Order of Carmel. I belong to the FSSP Confraternity and the Confraternity of the Most Holy Rosary, and I founded my own Confraternity too. I am a godmother to several children. What are you even?
I know I have issues, that is why I am on therapy. But you don't even have a spiritual director, while my SD and I are so close, his code is now almost as good as mine.
I can sing Gregorian chant for hours while most of the schola just faint. I have a formator and she makes me follow the Rule of St. Albert. I go to Mass everyday and to Holy Hour every other day. I can lecture you the subtle differences between the Benedictine Office and the Carmelite Office. I do my research. Most priests and bishops don't even know what I know about Sacred Tradition and the Magisterium. You do not even know what Hispanic Privilege means. So what makes you think that Googling a couple of Peter Maurin pastebins and quoting The Josias (of which I am an avid reader) makes you a better traditionalist than me?
Don't lecture me on charity, I have been enduring your senseless gossip for months! I can understand that you cannot afford to give money to the poor because of your low paying job but constantly hounding your mother still sick with cancer for the little money you lent her once, well you're such a cheapskate.
You have a shit interior life and you do such a shit job, you almost got fired. How many Rosaries do you say every week? How many communions have you done un-sacrilegiously? Probably none because all you do is subtweet people all day. So don't lecture me about lipstick colors, hair colors, my choice of agnostic boyfriend, my shades, and my choice of career. And especially DO NOT INSULT SOFTWARE DEVELOPERS and their profession!
Fuck you, medievalist fetishist. Who do you think you are! Go break your back in the fields without clean water and electricity while I harvest crops with IoT. You can go back in time and become the most erudite priest, and you will still won't be able to beat me. I don't wanna see you subtweeting on Twitter. Devs like me made that shit. Stop using http://, begin using pigeon:// instead!
Fuck you, even atheist script kiddies make better trads than you.
4) Ever since I tasted UberRIB I never wanted to try the other architectures. MVI started to pale in comparison.
5) CI pipeline broke ever since I set some secret API keys that are on gitignore. I have a feeling that it's gonna be a loooong day tomorrow.12
So I lost a bid for a fintech app with blockchain capabilities that cost less. I can understand the cost less part. I charged 4000 grand. The winning team charged 2500. But come on, five weeks? And a hundred grand maintenance fee per month?
Still very salty about losing the contract, ngl. But I really cannot wrap my head around the 5 weeks delivery. It sounds like the rival dev team will whore themselves out selling prototypes and pretend it's production.
Oh well, at least my desk job pays more than enough for my lifestyle.4
Paymaya. Their developer documentation is all over the place, not very concise, and their support team is unhelpful at best.1
Mfw company pays for two CI pipelines, two analytics, two crash reporting services, and two servers aside from the one we have on prem.
Yeah okay hahaha fine. Thank you big airline company for letting me play with shiny expensive toys. 😁4
I wonder what kind of gifts would make my back end dev boyfriend happy.
I plan to give my boyfriend something specially dev for Christmas, aside from my box of non-dev stuff.
I'd give him DevRant swag but I'm afraid it might not reach my country on time for Christmas and even Epiphany. (I'd still give him DevRant swag though)
He already has a Cherry MX Red 100% MKB. He has a Mac Mini, is pretty content with his Zsn ear phones, and he boasts a monster PC. He loves his OnePlus 6 and his PS3.
He has bricked his laptop coding the back end of the app that we made together once and he laments not being to replace it. Perhaps a Lenovo ThinkPad...?
He says he likes the feel of a Cherry MX Blue.
As for the gaming stuff... perhaps a DoTA figurine? He likes DoTA lore very much and is a big fan of God of War. Maybe if there are new cool PS3 games out there...?
While we're at it, what could be nice useful gifts for devs such as yourselves you wish your coworkers would give you? :D19
About to get me a gun license! Then a gun after that.
I legitimately feeling like a declawed cat whenever I go around the metro minding my own business risking being groped at least. Sometimes I go home at real niqqa hours and you know how that sometimes goes. Knives and mace don't cut it anymore. Sometimes I get irritated that my boyfriend would not stop nagging me for being out and about at night when I had no choice but to let the rush hour pass just so I can commute home. If I have a gun, he would be assured that I am safe.
It's about time! 😤160
My dev shitposting chat co-members are having fun coding each of our chat bots right now.
And I'm gonna release my own chat bot to my non-dev friends too. Lets see if she passes the Turing Test as me. 😂2
So one of the documents I read during my onboarding in my new job was that QA also pays attention to the integrity of the software development processes, not just the quality of the product we are making/maintaining.
@Fast-Nop, I'm so sorry for being too proud to see this before.5
Man this junior android dev is so good at picking up frameworks and libraries and is quite the looker too. But I cringe at his version control management. Mfw he comments out code and commits without the new classes.
But I ain't gonna say shit. I really don't need his work for now. Let him suffer the consequences of his actions. Besides, I have a CI pipeline to lay down together. I'm doing code plumbing today you know.
Philippine Professional Regulation Commission, I'm getting good at pipelines. Where is my Master Plumber license? 😂2
Suspected SIM box hack:
Yesterday I received several messages from my telco that I have invalid promo registrations and I tried to register to several data promos. Except that I hadn't.
I put this through my local tech community and they suspect that I may have been a target of a SIM box attack (https://wired.com/story/...)
As for the reasons why it's probably happening to me, I have no reason to believe that I am being hacked other than the cracker's financial gain at my expense. Though I have had my Facebook, my Discord, and my Twitter broken in before for really horrible reasons.
Also my SIM is not bricked, or at least probably not completely bricked. Last time I have not received SMS from my friends when I posed them with a question, even if they proved to me that they have replied. But whenever I register to data promos (my SIM is prepaid), it works just fine.
I've told my friends not to text me anything until further notice.
Going to my local telco to set me up a SIM PIN shortly.
Didn't register my bank payroll account online with my mobile number, fortunately.
But I will have to find a way to freeze up my bank accounts and my online wallets.
This is going to be a loooong day.1
Sometimes I feel like committing suicide. Like today for example.
I don't wanna tell anyone why. I don't want to gather pity doots with regular updates about my deteriorating mental state anyway.
Yes I am on therapy. Yes I came back getting my Sacraments. Yes my family loves me. Yes my boyfriend loves me. Yes I have a stimulating work environment. Yes I have a sweet cat. Yes I contribute to open-source projects. Yes I am active in tech communities and some others. Yes I live alone right now. Yes I disconnected from social media. Yes I exercise daily and I take my meds. Yes I blocked everyone who was a nuisance to me. Yes I make memes. Everything you'd recommend in the comments, trust me, I have done it before in a sustained period of time.
I really just... give up.43
NBA API. My favorite material to use whenever I make sample app experiments that require REST API consumption
Tech lead of this new job tells the development team that he wants us to develop open-source frameworks on company time and named after our company like com.acme.library; like how Facebook has React and AirBnb has Epoxy. We will get credit for it, and it will be a good addition to our portfolio he says.
I think I landed a truly fabulous job.9
Former PM was so excited about Backlog, he downloaded the HEAD of the development branch of this particular project on Bitbucket we were working on, stripped it of the git commits for some reason, and reuploaded the entire thing to Backlog without the git history.
I had to instruct my junior devs to push into the two repos without fail.
Months later the CEO told us to stop using Backlog because it was too expensive for the company.
I guess my PM's curiosity in learning Git is a good thing.
I know that if anyone did that to any of my repos today I would be mad, but I couldn't find myself getting angry over such a malpractice. At least whenever I remember my own former PM doing it.
I guess it's because I'm a little forgiving towards dumbasses when they genuinely try to do their part.
A dev friend told me that infosec people should also learn how to code, not just learning how to uncover vulns and making up jargon nobody understands just so they can sound smart and marketable. I think he is right.
I haven't had an infosec guy come to my door knocking just yet. And I don't think I will pay a bounty hunter for looking for vulns without my go signal. That sounds a lot like highway robbery to me.
Look, if you want to be paid for uncovering vulns, just ask me first if I can pay you. Or wait for me to put up a bounty. That way we're wasting nobody's time.14
I'm tired, but in a good way.
I love my new job. I don't care if I have no more flexitime privileges anymore the vibe at work is pleasant and the only thing I stress about is code right now. Not exposed to any of that C-level BS.3
Yeah so I'm outside in the middle of the night, and I had to use the bathroom.
I saw my old work building. I remember that this particular building lets tenants share comfort rooms instead of maintaining their own.
So I went in there.2

℣: Okay Jenny, what made you stay up all night this time?
℟: Several college students joined the dev shitposting group chat and one of them had a programming problem.
℣: Yeah and?
℟: Since none of the pros advocated for spoonfeeding, I had to gauge and ask questions how much of C this particular kid knew.
℣: Then what did you find out?
℟: This kid was given a cheat sheet containing a recursive method and a normal method in action, but poor kid didn't even know what a string is.
℣: So what did you do?
℟: I first explained what a method does using real life examples in our native tongue. I took it slowly and spaced the lecture with questions asking if this method is implemented or no, taking the lesson one step at a time then coming full circle from real life examples to the cheat sheet at hand.
Ngl teaching is tiring but sure as hell satisfying. Except if you don't know what you're teaching lol
Planning to move into a distant condominium 30 kilometers away from home, just so I could be within walking distance from my new office.
My lungs easily collapse nowadays and I often get sick from the commute. And in worst days I might succumb to anxiety attacks again. The therapy meds can only do so much. Thanks toxic former job! Thanks to you I have to undergo therapy again WHILE still having to bust my rear end for the sake of my family.
And I am going to live alone. No roommates, no family. No one.
Ah Jenny. What could go wrong?10
My brother, when he was applying to become a web dev, came home looking for me and telling me his latest adventure with recruiters:
Interviewer: "Why should we hire you?"
Bro: "Because I need this job."
He actually said it 😂10
If you are in the middle of a meal, please excuse this rant or skip reading this entirely. Thank you!
Love too feel the rear end of my alimentary canal rumble and throb like a Zerg Evolution Chamber while I am in the zone.6
Mfw one of the recruiters who rejected me before started adding me on LinkedIn. This is a couple of weeks after my friends, who still have Facebook, were complaining of this random lady adding them on their Facebook accounts. And also this is a couple of weeks after people in the tech community slack were complaining about her probably too aggressive recruiting spiels on our Slack.
I dunno what to make of it but I am creeped out man.
