And again some "evangelists", saying certifications and training, start talking a hit about some method or practice unchained...
How the fuck people don't say the problem with borderline charlatanism...
If Scrum doesn't work it means you're not doing TRUE Scrum...
You should do TRUE TDD (the definition is so long and complex that you can fuck it up) and it'll solve your problem.
Every time is like fucking cults " you have to see the true light, then there is no possible problem... Everything will be solved".
So fucking infuriating!!3
Shaddock proverb: Continuously trying we ended up succeeding. So the more we fail, the more the success rate improves.
Fucking stupid sons of motherless goats!!!
Some stupid shit made a cluster fuck about our response time and web app velocity because: each call needed more than 3s to show... While the motherfucker was using 3G!!!!!!!!!
The application is an analytics dashboard...1
So I'm want to start looking into the hiring none French (not based in France) engineers but still inside the Schengen Zone (EU).
Do you have some ideas as to what recruiters or platform I might use for this?
The idea is to work with quality not shitty recruiters.
1. You don't code to add a feature or whatever. You do it to solve Users' problems. It's a User-centric system.
2. You read more code than you write. So help yourself and write code intended to be read.
3. If people don't know you did something, you did nothing!
4. Never answer a call at 3 am if you're not paid to be on night call-duty. You'll become the guy who answers at 3 am.
5. Remember the big difference between you and me is that I failed to do stuff more times than you have tried to do.
6. When you start shaving the yak, stop!10
* Well paid
* Low painfulness
* High employability
* We control the world, without getting it
* Possibly creating the system who will destroy humanity/the world3
So as we start to scale we are recruiting "a lot" of profile on the tech part. And for fuck sakes it's complex while covid shit storm!
No pub for the first tech interview, no late restaurants, a lot of "let's wait till next quarter"... Fuck....
And the worst of the creep is that I "have" to stalk/spam some profiles for the "hunt", and I'd like to clean/purify myself afterward...
Some 80s and 90s books. And the more the time goes by the more I lean towards FP and stateless systems...
On the syntactic side I love the work of Kevlin Henney. For me it's all about readability. So a lot of choices are based on that.
I'm so fed up why stupid fucks who yell to everyone "You must do TDD, because... Reasons!!!!". The fuckers even dare to call themselves " agilists" or "craftsman"...
The only reason to do TDD is to create Good Unit Tests. But by not stating the main purpose, you add a stupid process without add value.... The solution just became the problem!
So what if something goes wrong? Well, you didn't really followed TDD, because TDD never fails!!
So fuck ignorant stupid fuckers!!!!!
Having Good Unit Testing is the aim. TDD is one way to do it. Not THE WAY!!!
Also, stop using the word " coverage". It doesn't mean fuck!! If you know what kind of coverage you are completing, there could be some value...6
Numbers implementation in so many freaking languages!!!
Lack of naming consistency, and meaning.
And yes, setImmediate and setTimeout 0...
But the biggest feature issue is that people can code without thinking!!! There should be some hardware security to impede stupid fucks from committing code...1
How the fuck did we went from too little chars for naming, to too many chars, and managed to keep the same fucking lack of sense???
How the fuck is that better?
Before we had 2 letters var names, and now we have to scroll right to read them, and it still has no fucking direct meaning!!!!
How the fuck createMongoServerClientConnection is a good fucking name?!?!?!?! It has no fucking meaning!!!!17
FREE!!!! At last, my kids are out for the whole day!!!!!!!
No more nagging, crying, bitching from them while I'm in the zone!!!!
How the fuck can someone say he's a "senior" sre, admin sys if he doesn't fucking know how to sign a docker image or even which docker image repository he uses!!!! How the fuck!!!! Now you just copy/paste a freaking co config and you're a sre?!?! He doesn't even know the difference between choreography and orchestration!!!!
I'm always amazed at how people tend to prefer a certain pain instead of an uncertain relief... Batshit crazy...
One cousin talking about his abusive relationship: "Could be worst.... At least he doesn't beat the children"
A colleague talking about his failed marriage: "It's not so bad, we just have to avoid each other."
And you'll find the same shit with management. "The prod is only on D.O.S. twice a day...", " Every deploy is a hell as shit hit the fan, but after a week it's the usual"...
Crazy how "change" afraid people1
So today we were notified that the schools in our sector will be closing next Monday for an unknown amount of time...
The building where my office is, will also be closing...
The fuck!!! I have 3 lovely monsters... No way to run, to hide, to be in peace!!!! THE WHOLE FUCKING DAY!! FOR WEEKS!!!!10
A module for molecules, which take an OPEN API definition and creates a restful API and graph definitions.
So all the proxy database stuff on a rest API can be done easily inside a microservices architecture.3
One of my juniors was approached by Klarna. To join their engineering department.
Does anyone have prior experience with them?6
The top two:
* the laziest intern ever!! He lived 100m from the office but was always late for the daily. Even managed to forget his fucking laptop at home!! His mommy had to wake him up!!! He was so useless that I thought he was on the first year of his bachelor's degree and later the team said to me that he had finished it.
* some frat bro, got an internship thanks to daddy inside my ops team. He managed to insult everyone in his first week!!
So I had to tell his daddy, that his son will work under the office support team and will be in charge of the first level support for his branch. Daddy fired his son sorry as after two weeks!!1
I was working at a Japanese company in Tokyo. A fucking earthquake started.
I was the only moron who was willing to start running for my life...
I couldn't do shit all day!9
My middle company urged to try to outsource the engineering department.
So today I met with a "senior engineering manager" to explain to him our infra.
He doesn't know what AAC (architecture as code), terraform, k8 and graphql mean... And that's the easy part!
3 hours after... He only said: "I don't think we have the skill needed to maintain this".
Next week, we should dive in the micro-services...It's going to be hilarious. Well for me, he's fucked.7
So I was talking microservices architecture with some lead techs.
And I started asking how did they combine/connect their microservices.
And despite having a lot, they use HTTP as the main transporter.
So the put some API-Gateway, all inside traffic has to go through it, to connect to the final client.
And I said that I do meshing microservices, and we use Nats as man transporter, so our messages go through UDP and not TCP.
And they freaked out. Saying UDP is too low level and not useful...
My question: if you do microservices oriented architecture, and not SOA, do you use HTTP? Did you use it simply because "it works"?14
So today I got to see one of the most stupid architectural choices I have ever seen.
They have a service-oriented architecture. Mainly Python and Elixir.
A lot of computation goes in the Python services.
And the Elixir services as used to expose RestApi. Basic ones, basically DB proxies.
Not a lot of async, or communication... Just plain CRUD.
Why the fuck do you use Elixir for that?? And now they can't recruit someone... And the CTO doesn't get why it was a stupid choice!!!
And in python, they use async functions with sync DB APIs...1
Almost every I code with close friends (all seniors) or my brother (also senior).
It's crazy what we can accomplish when there is no implicit and no one want to take shortcuts.
And mostly on personal projects, no client to shit all over the place.
With m'y brother we also often code at 4 hands in repl.it
I always liked to go through recruitment pipelines, to see what other companies do.
So today I had a meeting with a "talent recruter".
He asked to present myself, my history and what I did in the last three years... In 10 minutes...
So, obviously I did it in 20 mins.
The final response was "not good vibes, and synthesis problems".
WTF? How can I presente a big restructuration, recruting, process, formations, architectures in less thant 15 minutes... Did he wanted that I made drop naming.2
So last time, when HR asked for a meeting I thought they knew who'll be leaving with me. But there is only rumors saying "CTO is poaching inside his team".
And I also learned from the a paralegal, who talk too much, that they just want to fuck with me.
So new course of action: how can I fuck with them? All week end thinking about it. And today, a big competitor, offered me the VP Engineering!!!
So I'll try to make them use their Non-Competition clause.
In France you can set a couple of main competitors and the employee can't work for them for a couple of years. And you have to pay the employee the full salary he could earn during that time (two years of salary). As the employee, you have to disclose this information (you want to sign with the competitor) with your current company and they have a couple of week to decide if they want to use the clause.
So I'm starting to see how I can scare them enough to make them use this clause.
I know it's not cool, but I enjoy so much fucking with them!!!10
So today my middle company put a meeting with the new HR.
Meeting subject: you can't poach inside the company.
Context: I resigned, and I'll be taking with me 3 profiles.
HR: If you do take them, we'll take you to court.
HR: It's poaching and by contract, you can't.
Me: You can show which clause?
HR: That's not the problem.
Me: Also in France, you need to notify the employee as you are denying his right to get a job. And pay him for that.
HR: What? That's none sense! Stop talking and listen.
HR: We'll sue you and crush you. You'll have so much legal problem that you...
Me: I'll just start recording on my phone, so you say that you accept it and continue your intimidation rant.
HR: What? No!! Stop that.
Me: *stop it* Would you rather have my lawyer with us? Because we'll need to reschedule the meeting.
HR: If you continue that way, we'll tarnish your name and no company will hire you.
Me: You really aren't familiar with IT, right? Because I could delete ALL production. No system work. The BCP will kick in. You will lose one or two days. Then make an article of it, showing what kind of process or security should have been implemented. And I will still get a high pay job!!
HR: You know what? Get out! If you want to go to war, your problem.
Me: Ok, so you'll be getting news from my lawyer by mail.
Me: Yeah, that harassment. And my lawyer will get in touch. And I might also post on LinkedIn. And talk about it in the next events I'm invited.
HR: that's, that's...
Me: freedom of speech. Don't worry I'll write it so it's only viewed as my opinion. Have a nice day.
Two hours later my friend, lawyer, send them a mail and email.
Three hours later the COO calls me. Saying that HR was out of line and that it'll no occur again. It was an error and I should be forgiving.
So now all discussion with HR must be held with my attorney :). And middle company pay for it.6
Don't do meetings?
When I have a 7+ meeting and I'm not presenting, I always have a prod problem.
My politics for meetings copy the need to know politic inside Intelligence service. Not 100% sure I need to be there? I won't be there.
So yesterday, I had a meeting with a big client of Middle Company. And as I resigned, and don't really give a fuck anymore, it was a really funny meeting.
First I played a got my best score in 2048!!!
The client asked a bunch of technical questions, so I answered him. Then came questions about planning: Would I be able to help us with their k8 stack deployment in September.
And while the CEO was saying "We talk about it in September", I said " No. In September I will start my company.".
And the client asked, "So you will be able to work for us?"
The CEO was so pissed!! So funny!!!
And today we received a letter saying that "the client" will stop working with us(IT) in 3 months.
I can't wait to talk to a buddy who works in the HQ.3
