AboutLikes to lift weights & do programming. Prefers backend development. Often called a walking library and loves most animals.
SkillsRaw uncooked php, laravel, some js soup, a cup of Vue, a pinch of Ruby & rails. A sprinkle of c# & a hint of c++. Oh and not to forget, css. Mostly the third iteration.

I feel like a lot of devs, last years self included.
Need to realize, a great Dev is not necessarily one that Ace in code.
But rather one that can convey and understand the problems they're to solve and more importantly the perspective of the end user.3
Wk88 i basically see "I'm a beta that belittles myself, because everybody else seems to be so much better than me.."
While I certainly know how it feels, that mantra & mindset will lead to void or null.
It's a self-fulfilling prophecy and life's a bitch that'll keep ya down if you let it.
It's gonna be rough, but ye gotta stop calling yourself inadequate and start working on honing your skills.
No great feat happens over night, it takes practice and dedication.1
Same as every year, attempt to take over the world!
Honestly tho, I don't put goals for myself as I never reach em.
Just going with the flow, not giving too much a damn about anything and seeing what comes ;)
https://eelo.io looks very interesting, especially for the privacy aware.. :)
On a nostalgia note; Behind the company, it's said to be the creator of Mandrake.9
One thing that slightly triggers me..
When people start a sentence with question and/or exclamation mark..
"!? Are you fucking kidding me??"
Having a tendency to interpret it as a statement rarely works out well...4
One of my hardest hurdles, is to write something that's just good enough.
And not waste hours making it an inch closer to perfect..
Writing half baked but functional solutions haunts me...
What's some valuable things you've learned this year?
Always ask myself, if I can elaborate on any given statement, otherwise just keep shut.
Always ask yourself before writing any code, if it's gonna be easy to modify later on, if not, take a step back and evaluate the bigger picture.
Don't bother with writing things clean in the first go.
It'll be much easier to refactor later on and take less total time.3
Working out regularly.
It's a nice break and it wakens my mind and body.
And it eliminate tension headaches2
My definition of hell?
Being forced to debug nested callbacks abusing global variables & closures generated from from reflection...6
Anybody have the bad habits of biting nails down and sometimes tearing the skin off finger-tips just because licking the blood is somehow calming?
If so, how do you combat it?32
Sins? All of em'.
Infinite loops of recursive callback carnage, just because I like to watch it burn.
Useful whenever anything slightly techy needs care or fixing..
Or anything heavy needs carried..
Otherwise just the guy being bashed "lovingly", usually about "get a real job" or "gym/computer addict"..
What really grind my gears?
People telling you to get ”a real job", because they can make a website with WordPress without needing any education or scam-diploma(read: proof of education)...
Noticed friends smartphone was unlocked & Felt like pulling a prank, so I installed edge and set it as default.7
What's That dread & shameful feeling when you get praised for some shit you know is awful called..?1
Did you know..
There is an Easter egg in the Unix man command, if you call it at exactly 30 mins over midnight.
Then it prints "gimme gimme gimme"; (all night long)..8
Dad?.. what is a super hero?
- it's an hero amongst heroes. oftentimes ordinary heroes inherit traits from super.
It's basic inheritance, son.
Fucking apple & Mac OS..
So.. Before high sierra, you could create a USB using boot camp.
All good & dandy without too much fuss.
No longer. instead it automatically mounts & copies the os onto a apfs partition(?) and without as much as a mention or warning it just reboots immediately when it's done.
Srsly, not even a silly "hey, we need to reboot"..
Now, I could probably have gone to diskutil, formatted, set the boot flags and copied the files..
But rly, Nvm that.
Besides I might actually find some use in a windows install.
So needing to install windows to create an USB is acceptable.
But Bloody hell, it's been a while since I've been in this triggered from something..
T_T no warnings, just force reboot into windows.
Hmm, I find it highly peculiar that I let a friend borrow my pc to watch stranger things on Netflix, with her account.
I signed her into the guest account, she picked Google Chrome (not signed in).
Now my Facebook feed and YouTube adds are all about stranger things..
I get the ip gets logged & mapped.. But srsly.5
When you see a semi bald man with a messy beard, bit too much belly, a dead look in the eyes that carries a pc bag.
And your first thought is "oh, a sys admin" x)7
If you write a solution to something at work, then the company most likely holds ownership with whatever license they have.
However if you rewrite that solution in your spare time, into a package that solves the same problem but different then replace (with permission to) the original implementation with the new one..
Can said company then claim ownership on your package?3
One sentence to fail almost any coder or related job interview:
"my code is so good, sometimes even I can't comprehend it."
"XDebug is like the SELinux of PHP."
-"I know right? It's the thing you always have to disable when something weirds out."
- random dudes on the train home
Wanna know how to piss off an entire dev team?
Agree that progressive isn't good enough, must be native.
And supporting ie7 & 8 won't take much extra time or effort...2
